lemmy.ca updated to 0.17.1

yeah, i’ve seen some of the chatter on matrix about. i’ll see what happens today & tomorrow and maybe will put off the upgrade, depending on what happens.


i'm planning on upgrading lemmy.ca to v0.17.0 on friday evening (Feb 3, 2023), probably starting around 9pm CST. it sounds like the database upgrade required could take a while, so expect at least a few hours of downtime. [v0.17.0 Release Notes](https://join-lemmy.org/news/2023-01-31_-_Lemmy_Release_v0.17.0)

i highlighted the three dot button you need to press:


it’s actually the top-level domain for Mali, and it’s free to register .ml domains. i believe that’s the main reason they used it.


Choose an user of your instance

that’s the key, they have to be a member of your instance.



yep, feel free to create any communities you want. there are many out there already, especially on other instances.


there should be a “NSFW” checkbox when creating a post? is that what you’re looking for? it might be different depending if you’re using an app or the regular web interface.


i believe that “26” refers to 26 ounces, so 26 ounces = 738.7396 ml, so it could be both, since it’s kind of in the middle?



  1. Hack drones
  2. Show porn
  3. ???
  4. Profit!

i believe HiddenServicePort 9998 127.0.0.1:9998 means that, in order to access it, you will need to browse to <hostname>:9998 in the Tor Browser.

if you just want the default http port, you can try HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:9998 i believe?

edit: i’ve never actually setup an onion service, i’m just going off what the docs are saying.



I still have no idea who to vote for, for mayor. they all seem bad, in their own way, especially the front runners.


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

lemmy.ca updated to 0.16.7

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.



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:

services:
  lemmy:
    image: dessalines/lemmy:0.16.6
    ports:
      - "127.0.0.1:8536:8536"
      - "127.0.0.1:6669:6669"
    restart: always
    environment:
      - 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"
    volumes:
      - ./lemmy.hjson:/config/config.hjson
    depends_on:
      - postgres
      - pictrs
    logging:
      options:
        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:

https://feddit.de/pictrs/image/83b2f6f9-19cf-4f32-9661-4308baedcc89.jpeg?format=webp

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:

I would guess it’s a federation issue maybe? maybe if a down vote doesn’t federate for whatever reason but the user decided to un-down vote and that does federate? I dunno, just a guess.


haha got it. great link!

can you also create a new post in this community to see if it gets federated too? thanks!

that looks like it worked! thanks!

this is a test post to test federation between lemmy.ca and feddit.de

yeah, seeing those numbers was pretty scary. not overly surprising given everything else going on these days though.

lemmy.ca updated to 0.16.4

you mean, like adding my username like this? @Kokomheart@lemmy.ca

not sure why that would be, seems to be working for me. are you using an app or anything, or just on the website?

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).

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).

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!
