oops i should be promoting communities on my own instance i suppose!

lemmy.ca updated to 0.16.7
[release notes](https://join-lemmy.org/news/2022-09-14-_Lemmy_Release_v0.16.7_-_Bug_fixes)

this is the correct link: https://beehaw.org/c/linuxhumor@lemmy.ml

and it shows that it has 0 subscribers from beehaw, so that’s why you won’t see any posts in your feed. it needs at least 1 subscriber from your instance, then it should federate properly.

i had no idea. (i think) they’re pretty common here in Canada, at least a lot of people i know have one.

also, sometimes it takes a bit for the community to “sync” as well. but again, it might be a different issue too, i don’t know for sure.

I have noticed this too on our instance as well. I had one user fix the issue by unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the community, then it started federating properly.

any users still active here?
just curious.

we have a few fediverse ones here, let me find them.

i started writing a bot to automatically keep track of lemmy bucks, but sadly never finished it, like a lot of my projects, haha.

yes, exactly this. same issue with whatsapp, even though it has E2EE.

that post has the most comment’s i’ve ever seen so far. at least that i can remember. or maybe i just live a sheltered lemmy life, haha.

it looks like from the error message that you maybe don’t have the correct amount of whitespace. here’s a snippet of mine:

    image: dessalines/lemmy:0.16.6
      - ""
      - ""
    restart: always
      - RUST_LOG="warn,lemmy_server=info,lemmy_api=info,lemmy_api_common=info,lemmy_api_crud=info,lemmy_apub=info,lemmy_db_schema=info,lemmy_db_views=info,lemmy_db_views_actor=info,lemmy_db_views_moderator=info,lemmy_routes=info,lemmy_utils=info,lemmy_websocket=info"
      - ./lemmy.hjson:/config/config.hjson
      - postgres
      - pictrs
        max-size: "20m"
        max-file: "5"

i also added the 4 logging lines for each service listed in my docker-compose.yml file. hope this helps!

it’s just a change to the docker-compose.yml file. so depending on how your instance is setup (using ansible or docker-compose), you could just make the change yourself.

i believe that’s just a regular docker log file. i don’t think by default that docker shrinks their log files, so it’s probably everything since you started your instance.

i’m just guessing though.

there’s still 2 or 3 of us lemmy.ca users who are occasionally active, haha. I just lurk most of the time.

@asonix@lemmy.ml see comments above.

also, just to be clear, that link with ?format=webp is the link that lemmy tries to load when the pic is clicked on.

that option just disables the built-in firefox controls to turn on PiP mode, where you can drag the video outside of the browser window, and browse other tabs, etc.

i believe websites are still free to do their own thing with their videos.

so it sounds like an extension (like you already mentioned) is your only option to disable them.

i get a 500 internal server error when attempting to fetch this url:


with the response: {"msg":"Unsupported image format"}

seems like maybe a pictrs issue?

i’m able to view the image if the ?format=webp isn’t in the link.

there’s just a regular setting for it, from the link above:

lemmy.ca updated to 0.16.0
this should hopefully fix some more federation issues, along with other fixes. official announcement here: https://lemmy.ca/post/85267

lemmy.ca updated to 0.15.4
this should fix some federation issues. more info here: https://lemmy.ca/post/82807 i also added a registration application, since trolls were bombarding the site and lemmy.ml put us on their blocklist until we either added the registration application, or e-mail verification (which i'm not sure would've stopped the trolls).

Should we require a registration application on signup at lemmy.ca?
it was [recommended](https://lemmy.ca/post/66462) for all instances. it would definitely cut down on spammers, but may discourage actual users from signing up too? just wanted to get everyone's thoughts on the matter. if you're wondering who i am, i [previously posted](https://lemmy.ca/post/73688) in the [announcements](https://lemmy.ca/c/announcements) community, but didn't realize that there aren't many subscribers there, i've taken over the hosting of [lemmy.ca](https://lemmy.ca).

new lemmy.ca owner
hello all, i've taken over [lemmy.ca](https://lemmy.ca), as originally discussed here: https://lemmy.ca/post/49203 with [kinetix's](https://lemmy.ca/u/kinetix) help, it looks like everything has been migrated over. let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues. thanks!
