You could make private torrents for the lectures, and have some internally accessible document that lists the magnet links.


Did the postgres upgrade script show any errors?

Did you do any manual DB editing before you ran this?

I ask because I tested this upgrade many times, on production DBs that have years of history, to make sure nothing got lost.



Open up an issue in on the lemmy ui github, with how to reproduce.



Its probably because you don’t have that language allowed in either your instance, or community settings.


Yes these are for new comments. Its comments within 10 minutes.




Yes this seems critical, I’ve opened up a bug in lemmy-ui to fix it.


These probably need to opened up as issues on the github.



The top level / home page.


Hrmm not sure how that happened… you can go to your settings to change it.




Also I apologize that the upgrade here took longer than expected. It was a massive conversion of comments to a different form, that had to work for several hundred thousand historical comments.


Thanks!

No language tagging has nothing to do with flairs.


Lemmy Release v0.17.0
Its been a long time coming 🥳 . Excerpt from the link: ## Major Changes ### Language Tags Content can now be tagged to indicate the language it is written in. These tags can be used to filter content, so that you only see posts in languages which you actually understand. Instances and communities can also specify which languages are allowed, and prevent posting in other languages. In the future this will also allow for integrated translation tools. ### Comment trees Lemmy has changed the way it stores comments, in order to be able to properly limit the comments shown to a maximum depth. Included are proper comment links (`/comment/id`), where you can see its children, a count of its hidden children, and a _context_ button to view its parents, or the post. ### Featured posts Admins and mods can now "feature" (this used to be called "sticky" ala reddit) posts to the top of either a community, or the top of the front page. This makes possible announcement and bulletin-type posts. Special thanks to @makotech for adding this feature. ### Federation Lemmy users can now be followed. Just visit a user profile from another platform like Mastodon, and click the follow button, then you will receive new posts and comments in the timeline. Votes are now federated as private. This prevents other platforms from showing who voted on a given post, and it also means that Lemmy now counts votes from Mastodon. This release also improves compatibility with Pleroma. If you previously had trouble interacting between Pleroma and Lemmy, give it another try. We've extracted the main federation logic into its own library, [activitypub-federation-rust](https://github.com/LemmyNet/activitypub-federation-rust). It is open source and can be used by other projects to implement Activitypub federation, without having to reinvent the wheel. The library helps with handling HTTP signatures, sending and receiving activities, fetching remote objects and more. ### Other changes - Admins can now purge content and pictures from the database. - Mods can _distinguish_ a comment, "stickying" it to the top of a post. Useful for mod messages and announcements. - Number of new / unread comments are now shown for each post. - Lemmy now automatically embeds videos from Peertube, Youtube and other sites which provide an embed link via Opengraph attribute. - You can give your site "taglines", short markdown messages, which are shown at the top of your front page. Thanks to @makotech for adding this. - You can now report private messages. - Most settings have been moved from the config file into the database. This means they can be updated much easier, and apply immediately without a restart. - When setting up a new Lemmy instance, it doesn't create a default community anymore. Instead this needs to be done manually. - Admins can choose to receive emails for new registration applications. - An upgrade of diesel to v2.0, our rust -> postgres layer.

Most likely not… this one took a long time because lemmy has hundreds of thousands of historical comments it had to transfer to a new form.


This should be happening today, so don’t be alarmed when you see the maintenance page and lemmy is down for a few hours.


Wish them the best of luck in solving this… ddos’s are no bueno.


Lemmy upgrade tomorrow (or wednesday), and we’ll have a few hours of downtime.
We're getting ready to release a new version of Lemmy, which will require a database upgrade, so we'll have a few hours of downtime.

I thought about adding a “too long in between observation and response” (IE if you receive a message, they could already be dead for thousands of years), but this one is the same thing really.


The mouse hover / click and hold should also say edit.


If its a closed-source app, 100% go ahead and pirate, but if its open source, try to contribute to the devs to keep it alive.


The top level replies should be short and simple here, then you can respond to your own comment with this deeper explanation.


This is the best one. Some of the wiki summaries here. Mainly that communication is dangerous, and its far less risky to listen.



Whoa this looks sweet, great job! A few suggestions:

  • Right now it appears to just be sorted by new communities. Add sorting by monthly, weekly, or daily popularity would be useful for those looking for active communities.
  • Link to the source code, with the license.


I had the muvo!! I loved that thing.

Smartphones really did wipe out a ton of those single-function devices.


Apologies for all the translators that weren't able to sign up before (it was email issues), this should be fixed now.

The money thing is definitely an issue… when lemmy’s NLNet grant runs out, we will need to transition to a more sustainable model.

The best option for open source projects like this one to stay alive, is subscriptions (which we already have via liberapay and opencollective). I really like what tasks.org has to say about it:

I know you hate subscriptions. I don’t like them either.

Mobile apps must be maintained and supported forever, and one-time purchases are not an effective method of funding development¹. When one-time sales dry up then developers abandon the app. Subscriptions give them an incentive to keep you happy.


Thanks <3

For me at least, the burnout comes from the fact that I want to code, not troubleshoot. I want to make new features, build snazzy front ends, and not have to worry about money.

But as lemmy’s gotten more popular, a big chunk of my time is spent doing the things the article mentions: responding to an endless stream of notifications that builds faster than you can close them, helping debug people’s system setups, address people’s odd use-case pet features they want, and troubleshoot other issues.

Many times people can be very rude, not realizing they’re asking you to do free labor for them. Its very similar to how some people treat restaurant servers as their personal servants.


pictrs_1    | Error: Error in DB, Read corrupted data at file offset None backtrace ()
pictrs_1    | 
pictrs_1    | Caused by:
pictrs_1    |     Read corrupted data at file offset None backtrace ()

Its a pictrs issue, not with lemmy. @asonix@lemmy.ml or ask in the pict-rs matrix channel.


So basically medium running their own mastodon instance, and making sure their workers use it rather than twitter or something, is a way to keep them in line?


Medium is even one of the ones explicitly called out here: https://idlewords.com/talks/website_obesity.htm

They managed to make displaying some text, a bloated javascript spyware mess.


I think its a good idea obvi. Its a collision between the microblogging / twitter-style that masto and pleroma employ(that have no title, only a body), vs the link-aggregator style (which has a title, and an optional body).

Both platforms should try to resolve the missing fields in whatever way possible, even if that means extrapolating bodies to titles and vice versa.


This is the MessagEase layout for the MultilingO keyboard. Unfortunately MessagEase development (which is the fastest android keyboard), died several years ago, and we're in dire need of a replacement.

That already exists, there’s a dedicated getcommunities endpoint… and a search that can search for communities.


How would you feel about bundling this type of automatic discovery into lemmy, as an optional server setting (default off)?

It’d be one of the periodic maintenance jobs we already have in there.


Yep that’s correct, instances don’t automatically connect to all communities. Someone from that instance has to subscribe to it first, for that instance to start getting updates.




Did any of yall get this? Really annoying.

Idea for a Lemmy project: Create a stackoverflow style front-end for lemmy.
In the same way that Nutomic built a phpBB themed front end, it would be entirely possible to create a stack-overflow type one, as many of the same concepts translate over.

Someone made a RTL Arabic lemmy!
Could someone who speaks Arabic please contact them? I'd love to get those changes incorporated into lemmy-ui.

Pictures should be working smoothly now.
All the old pictures are restored from a backup, and should be working now. We've bought more hard drive space too, so we should be okay for a while.

Welcome to Lemmy, I'm one of the devs and admins for this instance. Being pro-piracy, and allowing torrent magnet links 🏴‍☠️ , is one of the original reasons I started working on lemmy ( even a lot of the better reddit alts refuse to allow magnet links, or be pirate-friendly). One of the best ways to keep the stream alive, is by decentralizing the ways we find and access content. Torrents do this directly for data, but I hope that lemmy, as a federated reddit alternative, can eventually serve as a platform to aggregate, post, and comment on pirated data in a decentralized way. [More info about Lemmy including docs, how federation works, and a good onboarding site.](https://join-lemmy.org/) Welcome aboard!

## What is Lemmy? Lemmy is a self-hosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company. This means that there is no advertising, tracking, or secret algorithms. Content is organized into communities, so it is easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top. ## Major Changes A full list of fixes is below, but this patch release includes federation compatibility and bug fixes, as well as fixing vulnerabilities in our websocket rate limiting. ## Upgrade notes Besides the addition of a [search rate limit to the lemmy.hjson](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/config/defaults.hjson#L39), there are no config or API changes. Follow the [Docker or Ansible upgrade instructions here.](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/administration/administration.html) ## Support development We (@dessalines and @nutomic) have been working full-time on Lemmy for almost two years. This is largely thanks to support from [NLnet foundation](https://nlnet.nl/). If you would like to support our efforts, please consider [donating](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). If you'd like to support development, and make sure that we will always be available to work full time on Lemmy, consider [donating to support its development](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). We've spent hundreds of hours on Lemmy, and would like to be able to add more developers to our little open-source co-op as time goes on. ## Changes ### Lemmy Server - Federate user account deletion (fixes [#1284](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1284)) ([#2199](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2199)) - Dont federate initial upvote ([#2196](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2196)) - Add missing mod log entries for federated actions (fixes [#1489](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1489)) ([#2198](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2198)) - Make sure application questionaire is required.

## What is Lemmy? Lemmy is a self-hosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company. This means that there is no advertising, tracking, or secret algorithms. Content is organized into communities, so it is easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top. ## Major Changes ### Theming Customizing Lemmy is now much easier than before. Instance admins can select a default instance theme under `/admin` which applies to all users who are not logged in, and those who haven't explicitly picked a theme. It is also possible now to add custom themes to an instance, without having to recompile lemmy-ui. When running with Docker, make sure that [these lines](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ansible/pull/24/files) are present in docker-compose.yml (Ansible will add them automatically if you updated the repo). Then put your .css file into `./volumes/lemmy-ui/extra_themes`. The new theme can then be selected by users, or set as instance default. For native installation (without Docker), themes are loaded by lemmy-ui from `./extra_themes` folder. A different path can be specified with `LEMMY_UI_EXTRA_THEMES_FOLDER` environment variable. For instructions how to create a new theme, have a look at the [documentation](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/client_development/theming.html). ### Federation @nutomic made many changes to federation to increase compatibility with other software. Lemmy can now receive deletions from [Pleroma], comments from [Friendica] and communities from [lotide](https://sr.ht/~vpzom/lotide/). Other actions were already compatible before. Mastodon can now display communities even when a user with identical name exists (but the user can't be viewed in that case). There were no breaking changes necessary, so federation is fully compatible with 0.15. If you notice something in another project that doesn't federate but should, please open an issue. Multiple users have pointed out that posts, comments and votes don't federate reliably. We first attempted to fix this in [Lemmy 0.15.4](https://lemmy.ml/post/184152) a few days ago, but that didn't help much. Later @nutomic noticed that Lemmy was only sending out activities with 4 worker threads, which is not enough for a big instance like lemmy.ml. At the same time, many of those workers were taken up by sending to broken instances, trying to connect for a minute or more. This version adds a timeout and increases the number of workers. ### Federated bans Until now, only community bans were federated, and the "Remove content" option didn't work over federation. The new version fixes this behaviour, so that both site bans and community bans federate, including "Remove content" option and expiry. Note that this change only affects new bans, those which were issued before upgrading to 0.16 will not be federated. ### Hide communities @dayinjing implemented a funcionality for instance admins to hide controversial communities. A hidden community is only visible to those users who subscribe to it. This represents a milder alternative to removing a community. This functionality is not implemented in lemmy-ui yet, but admins can hide a community like this via command line: ``` curl -X PUT https://example.com/api/v3/community/hide \ -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ -d \ '{"community_id":3,"hidden":true,"reason":"*reason for mod log*","auth":"*admin jwt token*"}' ``` ### Jerboa: a new android app To help adoption, and since most people use social media through their smartphones nowadays, @dessalines has been working on a native android app for Lemmy called [Jerboa](https://github.com/dessalines/jerboa), which is now on [F-Droid](https://f-droid.org/packages/com.jerboa) and [Google Play](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jerboa). It is still at an alpha level, but is very usable. We'd love to have experienced android developers contribute to it. This now makes three smartphone apps for Lemmy: [Lemmur and Jerboa for Android, and Remmel for iOS](https://join-lemmy.org/apps). ## Upgrade notes Follow the [Docker or Ansible upgrade instructions here.](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/administration/administration.html) There are three lemmy.hjson config changes. See [defaults.hjson](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/config/defaults.hjson) for comments and default values. - changed boolean `email.use_tls` to `email.tls_type` - added `setup.default_theme` - added `federation.worker_count` ## Support development We (@dessalines and @nutomic) have been working full-time on Lemmy for almost two years. This is largely thanks to support from [NLnet foundation](https://nlnet.nl/). If you would like to support our efforts, please consider [donating](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). If you'd like to support development, and make sure that we will always be available to work full time on Lemmy, consider [donating to support its development](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). We've spent hundreds of hours on Lemmy, and would like to be able to add more developers to our little open-source co-op as time goes on. ## Changes ### API - A full list of the API changes can be seen on this diff of [lemmy-js-client: 0.15.0 -> 0.16.0](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-js-client/compare/0.15.0-rc.34...0.16.0-rc.1) . ### Config - The config changes are [here.](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/compare/0.15.2...main#diff-bcc84ad7bb4d0687c679cb6b3711052d8eba74a8188578c7516a8fdb5584d01a)

To combat the anti-Semitic brigades over the last few days, we’ve made it so that new users have to fill out a registration application before they can join here.
This should help us cut down on the trolls. We recommend other instances do the same, because they will likely be targeted also. I apologize for all their gore-posts as well, no one should have to see that. We'll try to look for more admins from different time-zones as well to get them faster. The two other possibilities we have currently as options, are turning on required email verification, and as a last resort, closing signups. I personally would rather not do either, but they are options. Many thanks to [@k_o_t@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/k_o_t) and [@AgreeableLandscape@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/AgreeableLandscape) for banning those trolls.

Lemmy now has private instances, optional registration applications, optional email verification, and temporary bans! These are described in detail below. Special thanks to @asonix for adding [tokio-console](https://github.com/LemmyNet/Lemmy/issues/2003) and [Jaeger + opentelemetry](https://github.com/LemmyNet/Lemmy/issues/1992) to our dev setups, so we can better identify performance bottlenecks. ## What is Lemmy? [Lemmy](https://join-lemmy.org/) is similar to sites like Reddit, Lobste.rs, or Hacker News: you subscribe to communities you're interested in, post links and discussions, then vote and comment on them. Lemmy isn't just a reddit alternative; its a network of interconnected communities ran by different people and organizations, all combining to create a single, personalized front page of your favorite news, articles, and memes. ## Major Changes ### Required email verification Admins can turn this on, and new users will need to verify their emails. Current users will not have to do this. ### Registration applications Admins can now optionally make new users fill out an application to join your server. There is a new panel in their top bar where they can approve or deny pending applications. This works in conjunction with the *require_email* field. If that is also turned on, the application will only be shown after their email has been verified. The user will receive an email when they have been accepted. ### Closed / Private instances The instance settings now includes a *private instance* option, which if turned on, will only let logged in users view your site. Private instances was one of our first issues, and it was a large effort, so its great to finally have this completed. ### Temporary Bans When banning users from your site or community, moderators can now optionally give a number of days for the ban to last. ### Allow comment replies from blocked users It used to be that if a user blocked you, you couldn't respond to their public posts and comments. This is now fixed. They won't see your content, but others can. ## Upgrade notes Follow the [Docker or Ansible upgrade instructions here.](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/administration/administration.html) ## Support development If you'd like to support development, and make sure that we will always be available to work full time on Lemmy, consider [donating to support its development](https://join-lemmy.org/donate). We've spent hundreds of hours on Lemmy, and would like to be able to add more developers to our little open-source co-op as time goes on. ## Changes ### API We've removed a list of banned users from `GetSite`, added a few endpoints related to registration applications, made a few changes allowing temporary bans, site settings, made a few changes to the login response. These are non-destructive and current clients should work with this release. - A full list of the API changes can be seen on this diff of [lemmy-js-client: 0.14.0 -> 0.15.0](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-js-client/compare/0.14.0-rc.1...0.15.0-rc.34) . ### Config There is a new rate limit for creating new comments in the [config.hjson](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/config/defaults.hjson#L36). ### Lemmy Server - Adding temporary bans.
