Distribute Lemmy via crates.io

鉂わ笍 Thank you! I鈥檝e been trying to set up a Lemmy server on my VPS this week in my spare time. I鈥檝e never used Ansible or Docker before and both of them have been giving me such a headache.

Glad to see the blocking feature. I immediately went back to an old discussion and blocked a user that I wanted to block months ago.

Ya that was a long time coming, we should have been faster about adding blocks. Next up is reporting.

Hrm鈥 I鈥檓 noticing this too, randomly. I鈥檒l open up an issue in lemmy UI, and try to replicate it locally. Not sure why this didn鈥檛 show up in testing :(

I apologize for this one, fairly critical bug, that slipped past because nearly all our testing is with the HTTP API, not websockets.

Other question.

When I received your notification by email and I opened the link, the notification was marked as read but I still was redirected to the inbox to see nothing because of that.

Is that an expected behaviour?

Hrm no, the only thing that should mark a comment as read, is when you either click the mark as read link, or you go to that specific linked comment: IE https://lemmy.ml/post/79510/comment/75942

Strange.

I received your notification now online in Lemmy from page and was instantly marked as read.

Dissapearing the icon almost at instant in the bell to the inbox.

I had to check 鈥淎ll鈥 to see it.

Blocks are quite hidden in user settings as a tab.

Might be nicer to have them on the respective user and community page as a block button.

A shortcut for user block is behind the 3 dot menu for every user, the far right one:

I couldn鈥檛 think of a quick shortcut place for communities, so that鈥檚 just in your new settings page.

I think blocking should be available directly from the user/community profile.
