these betas are being released insanely fast

Ah, I see you already set that up. Thank you 👍


I’m happy to see that the draft for the Lemmy article that I started came in useful.

I was under impression that the process on Wikipedia is that draft gets improved until it gets accepted. But ok, going directly for an article seems to work as well.

Since draft is no longer useful, it should probably be deleted, right? Any idea how to request it’s deletion? I checked around some templates. There is a not-yet-accepted template for proposed draft deletion and a rejected template for proposed draft deletion. So I have no idea what the actual current process for proposing draft deletion is.




fuggggg, Linux 4.0 was almost 8 years ago. How time flies.
but maybe my perspective is skewed, as I got into Linux around the time of 2.4 and 2.6. those two felt like Linux version releases move very slowly. But now that I check Linux version history, I see that versions 0 and 1 went for about as long, if not even faster, than versions 3 and 4






what exactly does “locality-specific” mean here?
https://fediverse.observer/map seems to show more instances, but I guess those additional ones are not locality-specific?


Requesting !pine64
the only moderator of [!pine64](https://lemmy.ml/c/pine64) seems to be very inactive It's good that you are willing to appoint additional moderators to such communities. Otherwise many of them would have serious problem with [bus factor](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bus_factor). Actually, can you (and more importantly, **should** you?) make a list of all the communities that look abandoned? Criteria being what, all moderators last active 2+ years ago? Or would that bring more trouble than it would benefit?

wait, does HedgeDoc also allow real-time collaboration like Etherpad does?



No, Commafeed is the new Google Reader.

But article is correct about RSS being awesome. More info sources should utilise it.





Wait do people in this thread even understand federation?


regular expressions? Any decent text editor should have them. But with text editor you could either just find the hashtags, or do the “replace text” with a regular expression that matches everything that is not a hashtag, and replaces it with nothing.

If you are willing to use command line, you could copy the contents of the article into a text file and then use grep command in combination with regular expression that does match hashtags. That would get you a proper list.


Oh wow, you are correct, I provided an incorrect URL at first. Fixed it now.
Thank you for pointing this out 👍
I guess all the upvotes were from people who already knew about magic wormhole.


I came here to shill as well
https://github.com/magic-wormhole/magic-wormhole
it’s an amazing piece of software that allows you to transfer files between any two machines or easily share them with your friends.
it’s P2P most of the time, except where there is no direct path between two machines, then it goes through wormhole relay

requesting !mastodon
[!mastodon@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/mastodon) currently has two moderators. One seems to have been inactive for very long time. Not sure about the other one, as trying to open their profile returns 404. (should this be reported as an issue, possibility of non-existent moderators?) In any case, I would appreciate if I could be added as a moderator. It is safe to expect a lot more activity in this community in the near future, so having someone to keep an eye on it will probably be a good idea.

Interesting article.

It is good that people are sharing good practices, ideas and suggestions for how to better configure infrastructure that is used for Fediverse.

But I get a feeling that this is somewhat similar to the classic business solution of “throwing money at the problem”. It’s providing solutions to the symptom, not the cause.

The solutions that would benefit the whole Fediverse the most would be the ones that improve things at the protocol level, so that the increased activity would not put as much pressure on hardware and software as it does now.


A document with ideas and links for improving Mastodon ecosystem
Here is a copy of what was in the Etherpad (updated 2022-11-05): **Easy, anyone can do it:** * Help improve Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_%28software%29 **Somewhat advanced - Provide suggestions and help improve relevant software:** * https://github.com/tuskyapp/Tusky * https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore * https://github.com/ihabunek/toot * https://fedilab.app/ figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most Interface for finding server should let user mark various interests and return sorted list of most fitting servers process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier **Cross-post your Mastodon posts to Twitter:** * https://crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/ * https://github.com/renatolond/mastodon-twitter-poster * https://moa.party/ * https://gitlab.com/fedstoa/moa find ways to Twitter replies to appear in Mastodon, resulting in a fully bridged thread find ways to import some or all existing data from existing Twitter profile figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them * there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most * process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier **More technical stuff:** * Look through open issues, see if there is anything you can help with. Also help clean up by going through old issues and suggesting outdated or resolved ones for closure. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon * Help write documentation https://github.com/mastodon/documentation * host your own instance getting people to use it will help distribute the burden that is currently on mastodon.social * https://the-federation.info/mastodon takes long time to load. Probably transfers whole list before parsing it or something. Find ways to split the process and make information display faster

Open, decentralised, immersive worlds built on Matrix

how does this compare to Sepiasearch? https://sepiasearch.org/

well, apart from all the listed categories




sublemmy

lf only there was a word for it, like a “community” or something.


> The press release you’re looking for is no longer available.
Please use the menu above to view other relevant releases. heh
Now I wonder whether I should delete the posts that I made on Reddit.

actually, Matthew (the main Matrix dude) clarified this:

the >60M users (actual figure is 64M) is based on the phone-home reporting to matrix.org that synapse optionally does
the graph looks like this:
Screenshot 2022-07-14 at 10.58.51.png
of these, around 30M are natively on Matrix (the others are bridged in from other platforms)
and of those about 14M are long-term matrix users


I’m still trying to find the source of this “60 million users” claim. Any idea where that came from?

this
I use any chance I get to fight against this misconception


try clicking again

source of this info is Twitter, but I used Farside, which presents the content through one of the Nitter instances (and can do the same for some other social media frontends as well).

you probably got redirected to some URL that points to a now defunct instance of Nitter. Clicking the link again will hopefully choose a different instance for you.




check if the url to uploaded video is maybe still somewhere in your browser history

otherwise I have no idea


Floyd the Barber - Big Beat Friday 01 mix
do we have communities for more specific music genres? would it make sense to list some in the sidebar?
fedilink

is there an pull request open that would implement this?

or at least an open issue where this idea is being proposed and discussed?



Didn’t Fedora introduce something that prevents the system from allowing programs to actually eat whole RAM and cause whole system to freeze?

Are any other distros working on stealing acquiring this functionality?


from what I see, Lemmy is still too small to be a full “network”, it’s just a flagship instance with some satellite instances around it.

We need to help it grow in order for proper decentralised network to form.

But I don’t see many people promoting it. About a year ago I made a draft for Wikipedia article about Lemmy, but I did not find much to write about. Recently I checked how it is doing, and I saw that apparently people made some questionable additions to the draft and submitted it for review. Submission got rejected, reason being that Lemmy is not “notable” enough, as in, practically no independent information sources talk about it or even mention it. Of course I went to search the internet in hopes of proving this wrong, but I was not successful. Apparently promotion of Lemmy and rest of the Fediverse is something that is not being done as much as I would have wanted.

There should probably be some Fediverse Promoting Guide that would list effective means of spreading the word about what Fediverse is and why people should use it.

spoiler

Would someone please make a Fediverse Promoting Guide?

Are there any projects that are aiming to do something about this issue?

If advocacy of Linux is left to the community alone, you get the “Linux cultists” who do not have the most positive effect on geneal public’s perception of Linux.



there is no system in place that would prevent this be the case here as well


I am having trouble imagining how that would work with Lemmy architecture.

Wouldn’t you want Matrix to be the protocol for a chat app?

Also, wouldn’t this concept be better implemented as an alternative interface for Lemmur instead of a whole new app?
