Yes, LibRedirect is redirecting done on client side and Farside is redirecting done on server side. So Farside works even without browser plugins. I mostly use it when sharing links with other people, so that I do not send them into various privacy hellholes just because I wanted them to see something interesting.

Good question in regards to subscriptions. I’m not a web developer, so I do not know exactly what are all the technologies that could be used to solve this.

This is why https://farside.link/ is a very good thing to use.

Well, it moves the issue of privacy-frontend linkrot one level higher.
What happens if farside.link goes down? Should there be a service that redirects between multiple Farside instances? (for start it would be great if there were any other Farside instances) That’s again the same issue, but on different level. Is solution somewhere in IPFS or in some other decentralised technology? No idea, but it would be great if more people paid attention to this and helped find these solutions.

Ah, I see you already set that up. Thank you 👍

I’m happy to see that the draft for the Lemmy article that I started came in useful.

I was under impression that the process on Wikipedia is that draft gets improved until it gets accepted. But ok, going directly for an article seems to work as well.

Since draft is no longer useful, it should probably be deleted, right? Any idea how to request it’s deletion? I checked around some templates. There is a not-yet-accepted template for proposed draft deletion and a rejected template for proposed draft deletion. So I have no idea what the actual current process for proposing draft deletion is.

What do you mean by “click on an instance”?

Edit: Ah, I see, when you tap on the domain name part of the community. For me it shows an error, saying " null can not be cast as int" or something like that.

what exactly does “locality-specific” mean here?
https://fediverse.observer/map seems to show more instances, but I guess those additional ones are not locality-specific?

No, Commafeed is the new Google Reader.

But article is correct about RSS being awesome. More info sources should utilise it.

Wait do people in this thread even understand federation?

regular expressions? Any decent text editor should have them. But with text editor you could either just find the hashtags, or do the “replace text” with a regular expression that matches everything that is not a hashtag, and replaces it with nothing.

If you are willing to use command line, you could copy the contents of the article into a text file and then use grep command in combination with regular expression that does match hashtags. That would get you a proper list.

Interesting article.

It is good that people are sharing good practices, ideas and suggestions for how to better configure infrastructure that is used for Fediverse.

But I get a feeling that this is somewhat similar to the classic business solution of “throwing money at the problem”. It’s providing solutions to the symptom, not the cause.

The solutions that would benefit the whole Fediverse the most would be the ones that improve things at the protocol level, so that the increased activity would not put as much pressure on hardware and software as it does now.

I believe that you are a bit confused about how things work in Android.
There is no “lemmur’s internal browser”. At least not as far as I understand. What you are referring might be Android’s built-in browser. It opens links in any app, not just in Lemmur. Opens as in it displays a website, but when you look at your open apps, the browser is not a separate app, but instead appears to be the original app from which the link was opened.

In my case, I use Firefox Nightly, and I have it set as phone’s default browser.
When I either click on a link in Lemmy, or when I use the “open in browser” option, Firefox opens up as a separate application and displays the website.

So I’m not sure what exactly you need to do in order to set up the desired functionality, but I am telling you that it can be done.

also the “open in browser” is not what you want, since you want to open “links in posts”, but the open in browser thing opens the web interface for Lemmy, not the link that is in the post.

You mean the “open in browser” option that appears when you tap on three dots?

how does this compare to Sepiasearch? https://sepiasearch.org/

well, apart from all the listed categories

Now I wonder whether I should delete the posts that I made on Reddit.

actually, Matthew (the main Matrix dude) clarified this:

the >60M users (actual figure is 64M) is based on the phone-home reporting to matrix.org that synapse optionally does
the graph looks like this:
Screenshot 2022-07-14 at 10.58.51.png
of these, around 30M are natively on Matrix (the others are bridged in from other platforms)
and of those about 14M are long-term matrix users

I’m still trying to find the source of this “60 million users” claim. Any idea where that came from?

check if the url to uploaded video is maybe still somewhere in your browser history

otherwise I have no idea

is there an pull request open that would implement this?

or at least an open issue where this idea is being proposed and discussed?
