For me it usually works cross instance 🤷♂️
What I mean is that what people consider worthy of a down-vote differs from instance to instance. You can’t enforce a community rule for down-voting behaviour and some Lemmy instances are known for politically motivated down-vote brigading that does not align with the values I would like to see here on this instance.
I think yes. As far as I can tell disabling down-votes on an instance just hides that feature from users on that instance.
I have been considering to re-enable down-votes here, but I would prefer if down-votes would not federate as community standards really differ and abuse potential of this particular feature is relatively high.
Not sure why you reference Matrix, which has even worse scaling issues as it indeed tries to replicate nearly the entire network on every server.
The Fediverse is really just working how the general web does, just with some standardized API for websites to interact. It’s not perfect, but it works and has proven to be relatively scalable.
It sounds a bit like you had a bit too much of the Bluesky cool-aid, which indeed replicates nearly all of the mistakes of Matrix and makes it impossible to scale via small community owned servers instead of big company owned data-centers (which might be by design?).
Basically a repost (under CC-by-SA) as the original post I made with my old lemmy.ml account was removed when I deleted that account.
Heh… TIL ;)
Looks like there is actually a crazy amount of different types: https://www.universalnetworks.co.uk/faq/what-does-utp-s-utp-ftp-stp-and-sftp-mean/
If it’s only a meter, don’t worry about it.
You can guess if it is shielded or not by how hard the cables are to bend, but otherwise you need to cut them open and see if there is some metalized foil wrapped around the cables. I think this shielding is not mandatory by the specs so usually only the professional ones have it.
There was also some previous discussion about using a S3 compatible image host as the Pict-rs backend added support for that in the latest version v0.4.x
Lemmy is still using 0.3.x and 0.4.x is untested I think, and by default Pict-rs is proxied through the Lemmy backend server I think, but in theory it should be possible to distribute quite some load this way.
The migration to my server seems to be complete now. Sorry for the 2-3 hours service disruption as I was figuring out the correct nginx config. I’ll probably share it and my Podman scripts soon.
The new server should manage to take some heavier load as it a root server with 8 cores and 32gb RAM. I am sharing it with some other services, but it was mostly idling so far, thus no problem I guess ;) I will monitor the server load for a while and might move this instance to a smaller server in the future, lets see how it goes.
I also reopened registrations with admin approval.
this seems to be the relevant issue: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2877
Maybe some dns fail-over for lemmy.ml to point to join-lemmy.org might be cool indeed 🤔
Then people would start name-squatting and you would end up with people having to resort to email@example.com just because someone on a totally different instance already registered firstname.lastname@example.org. The instance already signifies that it is a different user and it is rather the exception that someone intentionally tries to impersonate a user by copying the avatar etc.
Reddit does have free RSS/ATOM feeds AFAIK, they are just strongly rate limited to prevent abuse. A single bot pulling RSS feeds for a few communities should be indistinguishable from a regular user though. This bot can pull RSS feeds and post them to Lemmy: https://github.com/pooza/tomato-shrieker
France has that train system, although sadly too centralized on Paris, meaning you often have to make a detour over Paris to reach another place.
IMHO only when there are suitable alternatives it makes sense to have legislation like that, although I think the real problem are unnecessary business trips (which includes private jets) and legislation should rather focus on that.
You mean here: https://join-lemmy.org/instances ?
It already has a “recommended” section at the top.
I think we could argue that having a “popular” section below is somewhat counter-productive as you don’t really want to funnel even more users to the already overloaded instances, but any kind of “political” sorting will probably just result in endless discussions on how and why something is sorted one way or the other.
There is a bot that reads a RSS feed etc and posts it to Lemmy: https://github.com/pooza/tomato-shrieker
Not very active but they have an official community on Lemmy: https://lemmy.ml/c/veloren
That is being reworked right now and Nextcloud also has file storage federation via the Open Cloud Mesh specification that allows sharing files and folders between various cloud file storage software. The latter is sadly often overlooked and more interesting than being able to post to Mastodon from the Nextcloud interface.
It is/was an idea, not a precise plan, mainly born out of some frustrations with Lemmy. It is still a consideration, but for now I think kbin is undergoing too many changes for it to make sense to switch right now. But since I want/need to switch servers right now and not in half a year or so I think I’ll stay with Lemmy and to be honest once I have everything setup and working with Lemmy on my own server I’ll probably be too lazy to switch again 😅
Really a long list of stanning for autocratic mass-murderers, too much to list all here. They are also generally hostile to Anarchists. I think this article sums it up pretty well: https://lib.edist.ro/library/mann-their-anti-imperialism-and-ours
