Lemmy

Hello everyone,

I have my Midwest, USA oriented instance up. It’s not federated yet, although I think it’s ready for federation since I added lemmy.ml and sopuli.xyz to it.

This is very much a personal project of mine, so there may be mistakes made in deploying it from time to time.

And now we’re federating with you!

Interesting, I restarted my server with your instance listed in lemmy.hjson and I still don’t see your content.

Have you subscribed into any communities at my instance? try !meta@sopuli.xyz for example. And as @nutomic@lemmy.ml said:

It will fetch the first 20 posts when the community is first searched from your instance (but no votes, comments etc). Once any local user subscribes to the community, all new posts/comments/votes etc will be delivered to your instance. Old items will only be fetched on demand (eg if you search them, or if they are referenced by a new item).

I see. I was just expecting stuff to show up in All. I can find !meta@sopuli.xyz, so it looks like it’s working as intended!

You need to fetch it manually, by entering the url of a community, user, post etc in the search.
