trying to find a post / source of “self-made success guy story” probably published previously on lem
it was a fun story of young guy from us, who worked during studying in his fathers company, lived in grand pa/ uncle home to save on rent, got loads of money from uncle and managed to save money for own house or something like that. Motto of article was: if he could everyone can do it too :) any guesses ?

The community is not available. I am a moderator there. The admin says he did not delete the community. Can it be that the community was accidentally made invisible, and how to undo this?

Any community focused on marxism and/or anarchism?
I want to get acquainted with more leftist philosophies, academic cultures and inquiries and was wondering which communities are focused on them! Thanks!

Is there an app that includes most of the popular corners of the ‘Fediverse’?
I'm assuming, out of all the Activity-Pub connected 'Fediverse', there are a handful of instances that get the most activity. That being assumed, is there an app (mobile and otherwise) that, functionally, includes most of these instances? For example, is there an app that can seamlessly handle Mastodon, Lemmy, Friendica, Hubzilla, Peertube, etc?

Any PeerTube instance that isn’t alt-right?
I tried to search for them but it difficult as there quiet a lot of them that have alt-right videos. Also I'm not multilingual and only know English which few instance are a different language. Videos I like watching: - - Linux - FOSS review/showcase - Gaming (such as Fallout NV, Minecraft, Resident Evil etc.) - Online Privacy - Anything related to being queer

Is chatGPT going to end more than 20 years of Google control over search engines?
chatGPT recently started making it loud, that way Microsoft rushed to pour $10 billion into it, so with this new model, are we going to witness the end of Google control over the way we search?

How do you feel about this personal e-mail format?
Let's say as an example that my full name is Robert Frankel If I purchase the domain `` and use that to create my custom e-mail: `` And then use this as my personal e-mail in a professional setting (resume, contact e-mail, business card, etc..). Do you think this would be perceived as unprofessional and silly in a negative way, and even confusing to some? Or do you think most people would understand it right away and think of it in a net positive way - perhaps a bit silly, but memorable. Don't worry about whether the e-mail will be filtered as spam, I am curious about how it is perceived. I am asking because I have a domain like this that I use for private personal stuff, and I wonder whether it would be a good or bad idea to use that e-mail when applying for jobs, as a small extra detail to stand out 😁

Do you think that Reddit will go the same way Digg did?
Ever since Elon bought Twitter, it caused mass exodus to Fediverse and companies have launched their own Mastodon instances. I am an ex-redditor and I joined Lemmy recently. Do you think Reddit will go the same way Digg did? PS: I was permanently suspended from Reddit for unspecified harassment.

Where would one find a good wired mouse in 2023?
Hello lemmy, I'm looking to replace my mouse and get a new one. Preferably wired, I don't really like the bluetooth mice. Not looking for extra buttons or anything, just a basic Mouse that does the clicks and scrolls.

Lemmy and Hashtags
Does Lemmy currently use hashtags in any way? I'm assuming it doesn't since they don't show up in the UI anywhere. But while thinking about [non-lemmy software posting to lemmy communities](, I was wondering how lemmy would use hashtags. My suggestion would be for lemmy to handle hashtags in a similar way to current microblogging software, by putting them in the `tag` field and allow lemmy users to add #hashtags to their posts. [Lobsters]( displays tags beside post titles (though these tags are admin controlled I think). It seems like there is a maximum of 2 tags, which I think would be a reasonable limit for lemmy to display too. The UI could display the tags as badges, with some affordance to view any additional tags, and clicking a tag would show other posts with that tag. As for why, I think tags on lemmy would serve two main purposes: 1. They would enable better discoverability on non-lemmy software where hashtags are the main topical grouping mechanism right now. 1. While lemmy uses communities for topical grouping, some posts might fit into multiple categories, even unrelated categories. Crossposting sort of solves this, but crossposting can be considered spammy if it's done too much. And, on lemmy, crossposting creates another post which fractures the conversation. This may be desirable sometimes, but a poster may also prefer to keep all the conversation in one spot.

Send emails from lemmy docker via localhost:25 not possible
I have a mailserver running on the Host, where lemmy is installed. Since a time, i didn’t know when, i can’t send emails from lemmy anymore. Connection refused. It is an exim4 configured as satellite listening on localhost:25. I configured exim to allow also connections from and listen on too, which is the docker-bridge ip. Are there any ideas, how to configure docker or the docker-compose.yml?

Should Mastodon users be able to create threads on Lemmy?
There have been some requests to make it possible for Mastodon users to create threads on Lemmy. At the moment this is not possible because Mastodon cant set the title field which is mandatory in Lemmy. The same problem affects other projects like Pleroma or Friendica (where title is optional). It is unlikely that Mastodon would make any change in this regard, so a workaround in Lemmy would be necessary. I implemented such a workaround which makes the title optional when receiving a federated post, and uses the first line of the content instead. This workaround could also be made configurable per instance or per community. But to be honest I am not sure the workaround is a good idea in general, as it could result in bad titles, and generally more low-quality posts. Thats why I want to know what the community thinks about it.

What are the biggest difficulties when making ActivityPub software compatible/federated with each other? And why?
There are some Fediverse services which are incompatible or don't work that perfectly with each other (e.g. Lemmy on Mastodon). So I was curious on why that could be a problem with ActivityPub compatible software in general. I mean, apparently just implementing ActivityPub may not be enough. And if there are some Lemmy devs reading, what are some technical difficulties for Lemmy on that regard? Thank you for making this awesome piece of software btw!

Any ways to buy games DRM-Free beside GOG?
I know the straight answers would be GOG but I was wondering if there are anymore game stores that sells DRM-Free games. Nothing wrong with GOG, just more curious if anything... Don't get me wrong, I don't mind buying games from Steam and use the [AutoCracker]( to get rid of the DRM. I just don't want to relies on Steam too much and want to break that habit if there's any good alternative.

Why Do Lemmy Comments Have Two URLs?
Lemmy comments seem to have two URLs. One is of the form https://{{domain}}/post/{{postId}}/comment/{{commentId}} The other is of the form https://{{domain}}/comment/{{commentId}} It seems like the second one is used as the AP id because it's the only one that resolves to the post when I search from my pleroma acct. Why does Lemmy surface two URLs on the comment? While I think the first form makes more sense, I think the comment should only include the second one since it's the one that can actually be resolved to the post from other software. If there's a reason to keep both around, could the first form be fixed so that it also resolves to the post? ![the byline of a lemmy comment]( In the above screenshot, the link icon uses the first URL form and the community icon uses the second URL form. This is another strange pattern. I would expect the community icon to link to the community's home page.
