It's becoming the same story year after year after year... when will they learn?

Install uBlock Origin, and get a mobile YouTube ad blocker. I use YouTube Vanced, but that isn’t supported anymore. There’s no reason anyone should be viewing ads in 2023

great update, lots of good quality of life features. rip the c/main community, may you live in peace

I haven’t tested it enough, but that does seem to be the case. For both users and communities you can block/unblock on their page or in your user settings page.

Desperate. Google advertising needs to be recognized as the monopoly that it is and dissolved. One company should not have so much control over what you see.

Hello! I wanted to share a community you guys may be interested in. It is about businesses and how they effect our lives. As the legal and business world often overlap, I thought it may be of interest. Feel free to subscribe and post links there if you want.

I wouldn’t touch it on the account of it’s crypto stuff.

Completely misleading title. Raising the debt limit would help to avoid a recession and job cuts. If Congress does nothing, the economy would be fucked.

Good. Loot boxes and micro transactions should not be allowed in games, period.

Sorry another Elon Musk post, but I found this one pretty interesting. Shows how useless being a “CEO” is, and actually harmful to your organization if you’re someone like Musk.

And you’ll know business owners will take every loophole they can get, especially if it means fucking over the American taxpayer.

The mockup below by @0x1C3B00DA@lemmy.ml looks pretty close to how I was envisioning it. It definitely looks off, and that’s why my preferred implementation is that Mastodon (and the other microblog services) add title support. Since they won’t or aren’t, I would rather that non-local content is preserved how it was, without too significant guesswork to fill in each platforms’ fields. Titleless, but preserving the post and not having a poor title is preferable to me than an awkward title that anyone on mastodon doesn’t see and doesn’t know about.

Allowing for people on lemmy to submit titleless posts can be allowed, since the tech would already be in the front-end to display it. Doesn’t have to be allowed, though.

It looks like you’re just supposed to redirect the draft page. See here, #17

Titles could become optional for short text posts. You could allow up to 500 characters in the body field to be a stand alone post title-less, which automatically adds support for all fedimicroblog services. This would have to be a setting per community to allow title-less posts or not, including a warning that this would break compatibility with mastodon, etc.

Nice. Medium is a blog-type site, right? Wish they mentioned if they were working on having the blogs be federated.

The article is asking for people to not be filming people for TikToks or whatever, especially without consent

Pretty much. If doing “anything to upset the employer” is outlawed, you can’t quit because “think of the lost profits”.

Just remains unfortunate we let the climate get to this place and that we really aren’t doing anything about it. Too much money to be made in destroying the earth.

The title had me thinking it may be something similar to The Matrix. Thankful that is not the case.

Yeah the title is more bold than the actual MOU. This wasn’t “winning right to repair”, but rather John Deere attempting to give a little so the farmers back down. Fully agree that a law needs to be in place to protect the right to repair.

ChatGPT would be the last place I’d ask.

it’s all soap…? You eat food with hands too so i don’t see the issue

The idea is that we showcase the communities from smaller instances, to promote federation.

It feels less arbitrary to me that the community about lemmy can be hosted on lemmy.ml? Maybe thats just me though.

Thanks for listing the rest of the other communities, they definitely will be included on the list.

Just to note the title is misleading – these were not staff nor paid. They got it right in the article, at least:

Two high-ranking “admins” – volunteer administrators with privileged access to Wikipedia, including the ability to edit fully protected pages – have been imprisoned since they were arrested on the same day in September 2020, the two bodies added.

I am working on creating !communities@midwest.social , which will be for listing and discovering new communities, preferably those on smaller instances (to promote federation). It’s currently unfinished but I’ve been slowly working on adding new communities. Feel free to suggest any!

Funny coincidence. Might just move there just in case there are higher odds.

Any reason for this other than “didn’t think about it”? It seems like a great way to help newer/smaller instances discover content that is on unknown instances.

From the buyers perspective: each person may value a product differently.

Abundance of image macros instead of links/text posts. It seems like everything is an image, meme, or infographic now.

From the article:

Democrats were enjoying the tumult to a degree but also recognized the problems it could mean down the road. Representative Mike Quigley, a senior Democrat from Illinois, said the speaker fight was the culmination of a growing Republican ethos of “taking their ball and going home” if they fail to get what they demand.

Other Democrats watched in amazement as they saw Republicans open their reign with a clash that would leave whomever was eventually chosen badly undermined and the party’s strength diluted from the start.

“What a weakened position they have put themselves in,” marveled Representative Rosa DeLauro, a senior Democrat from Connecticut.

But looking from Ada’s instance: https://lemmy.blahaj.zone/communities/listing_type/All/page/1

You don’t see all lemmy.ml communities. Unless this is a case of “federation takes some time” (might be, I’m not very familiar with the inner workings) it seems that the only communities known to lemmy.blahaj.zone are those that have been searched for.

Yeah you’re right about groups/communities not showing up in search or the communities view. That’s unfortunate that they don’t all federate upon discovery of the instance. I kinda assumed discovery of the instance was discovery of all communities.

On bigger instances (like lemmy.ml ) you can click the instances on the bottom, which shows you all the linked (and blocked) lemmy instances. From there you can put them in search and it’s to my understanding they’ll start showing up in ‘all’ post feed. Again another work around, but this is closer to what you want.
