Never smoked but I despite the name and consider it a deal breaker


While not privacy focused per say, if you’re ok with a shared host uberspace is the best company I have found! Green, pay what you want, homegrown, German, private



I’m not a fediverse developer but as I understand it the activitypub spec identities people and communities by their domain, and does not define a way to mutate.

Translation: you would loose all your peers and your comments.

If lemmy.ml copied the databases to a new domain, then when websites start to peer again there would be duplicate comments, one from the old domain and one from the new domain.

Translation: it would require the cooperation of every instance to be clean

I’m not a fediverse developer again, this could be wrong


You can’t just change a federated domain like you can change from facebook.com to meta.com, it’s nearly impossible



Someone said

Ad blockers are a self defense technology by nature

Add ads in small quantities to your website that respect me and my privacy and I might just whitelist you, but at this point the internet is unusable without AdBlock


Presearch

People should know about

https://marketplace.presearch.org

And make informed choices


Lemmy used .ml in it’s infancy, and it’s impossible to switch domain names now.

I can attest to the cons of .ml domains

  • Corporate networks sometimes block them (like mine)
  • Freenom is really sketchy
  • Email providers block them
  • Harms SEO (google will target less at people in us and more at people in wherever the hell .ml is from)

ooh I caught this one early! This community is mostly dedicated to open ended questions. People in c/lemmy_support would be more equipped to help you!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. There is literally nothing better, discord is closed source, matrix is slow and buggy
  2. It gets the job done with no fan fair
  3. It self moderates, only people willing to jump through the hoops to talk constructivly will do so
  4. Retro tech is fun


I’m keeping this cuz it’s fun and not a blatant support post but c/lemmy_support is probably better.


Please direct future tech support questions to c/lemmy_support, they are better equipped to help


Not positive about OBS, it’s mostly support in software I use


I’m not using wayland because I need to screenshare


All this does is make it harder for your contributors. I’m ok with it for my projects, but many are not. I have certainly skipped out on some drive by contributions because it would require the hassle of making an account.


Not been able to find a good registrar. Gandi is a fake shithole, all the other ones too. I decided if I couldn’t get ethical domains I would just get cheap ones, so cloudflare.

Stay tuned for names.sr.ht, they will charge 20$ a year to allow you to register unlimited domains with zero markup, and profit sustainably without data collection from that tiny subscription fee (plus tons of DevOps). They are waving the 20$ a year for people who can’t afford it without any questions, and the platform is open source.

NOTE: names.sr.ht has nothing, go directly to sr.ht to learn more about the platform

Re ethical hosting:

I’m impartial to uberspace, so many pluses!

  • green energy
  • German
  • indie (some pages are roughly translated for ultimate homelyness!)
  • Pay what you can afford
  • Friendly to beginners, support staff doubles as sysadmins who do everything in their power to help you.

♥️ (Not sponsored, I hope it becomes obvious these are good services when you visit their respective homepages)


Do you want to nominate someone for mod?
Hey all, I think it's unfair for me to be the only moderator (plus the admins!). I was trying to find some good candidates and I certainly found many, but I think it's much more fair to open the floor for nominations. Some groundrules so this goes smoothly: - You are allowed to nominate unlimited people, including yourself - You must make each nomination in a separate comment - Please ensure the user in question has not yet been nominated, if they have please upvote the existing nomination and maybe leave a comment in support instead! This is somewhat of a popularity contest, although note I do not promise the most popular candidates will be the ones selected. This post will be updated when mods are appointed with the logic behind appointment. --- [@mekhos@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/mekhos) has been appointed. This is because - Overwhelming support - 7 hour timezone difference (if I did the math correctly) [@tmpod@lemmy.pt](https://lemmy.pt/u/tmpod) - I needed one more, I see tmpod around often

Do you hate raids?!
Hey all, if you notice any comments that clearly don't belong here please hit the report button! In the next few days I will be checking in every few hours to ensure this community is in tip top shape. I have also recruited two new mods.

Someone should really revamp email
Email is already nicely federated, but I think it's time for a change. Services like protonmail offer encryption between users, but you can't host your own instance. It would be awesome if there was a spec somewhere for a federated email service that defines - email encryption between users - markdown - ~~connection with activity pub? (What would this look like)~~ I mean some way to "email the web", ie: add comments via email - compatibility with standard email users (if you send/receive to/from a user who does not have email v2 implemented it just uses normal features) - maybe "smart attachments" for money transfers, calender invites, etc. - somehow better support for email discussion groups - this spec should be focused heavily on usage for humans instead of automated mailing, I expect html would not be defined. I'm just spit balling here. Does anyone have any ideas? Does something like this exist? Thanks, Evan

[Mod] What is your vision for asklemmy?
lock
Hey! Back after a large break from lemmy and after returning to the community it seems it is more advice focused: `what is the best way to learn programming` vs story focused `what is a bad mistake when you started programming`. My job as a moderator is to serve the community best I can, so instead of changing the rules to recklessly to bar topics further without consent, I want to extend an invitation for *you*, the members of the community, to share what you want to see content wise from this community. **Examples:** > I like it as is! or > New rules ideas > - Only questions about cats are allowed > - Posts about dogs will result in being banned Thank you!
