Friends don’t let friends use proprietary software.

Lemmy is way better than Mastodon for content discovery, which is one of the biggest reasons I wish that lemmy supported “self-posts”, i.e. posting to your own timeline.

being able to cross-post “mastodon-like content” directly on lemmy would really help content discovery, make attributions simpler, and make lemmy the undisputed champion of the fediverse!

once an open-source program gets enough attention it achieves “critical mass”, and proprietary software can never catch back up.

They probably see the inevitable and are jumping on the train before it leaves the station

I dont even bother setting up email service for my instances, maybe they dont either.

I’d dm an admin =/

Yeah, I dont like the “github releases” for exactly this reason.

I have double the swap than physical memory in a swap partition. In not concerned about wearing it out, and I like having plenty of space for hibernation ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Feel free to post in the “linux” community, for FOSS stuff, and I just made the “tech support” community for everything else.

yeah, trying to sync all the info across the fediverse can be expensive, but its also distributed among a lot of different servers, so its kind of a double edged sword.

words have a hard time expressing the awesomeness of federation =]

strange, I commented on another instance just fine…


(you have to search for the peertube channel url in lemmy to view them)

EDIT: and the lemmy-view will be missing some content because of the federaton bug that got fixed, but you can search video urls to make them show up

hopefully this will finally fix lemmy <-> peertube federation!

yeah, Im getting 500s from pictrs. the devs probably need to restart the service or perform some other maintenance

[RFC] How should code-highlighting themes be handled?

I’m working on adding highlighting to code-blocks on lemmy using highlight.js, and am wondering exactly how to implement it. There are many code-themes that could be used Regarding which theme to use there are basically two different directions I could go: …


[Suggestion] Configurable "default sort" for comments

I would also appreciate site-config options for comments and posts…


Anyone else have this problem or know a solution?
My instance has almost no usage, and I’m using the version recommended in the docker instructions…


Why do mod-actions on other instances show up on my instance?

I get that “federated bans” were added recently, but it seems odd to show trolls getting banned from their home-instance on my instance. =/ …


Presumably it’s the link to the comment/post on the instance it was made, but that’s not always the case, so I’m a little confused =/…


Is there a bot that will scrape RSS / ATOM feeds and xpost to lemmy?

It would be handy for auto-posting new github releases, youtube vids, SO content, etc. …


The video seems to be fine… how is this possible!!!..
