I believe that already exists. The real problem is creating a cryptocurrency that doesn’t destroy the planet.

BattleEye is already there, devs just don’t utilize it.

The developers actually do a pretty good job of keeping politics out of the app itself and in the lemmy.ml instance instead, so the title of this post is quite misleading.

One thing people need to understand that lemmy.ml is not inteded to be a generalist flagship instance (like mastodon.social is to Mastodon), even if it’s maintained by the lead developers of the project.

On itseasiassa uskomatonta miten moneen eri ruokaan eläinperäiset ainesosat löytävät tiensä. Esimerkiksi sipsivalikoima kutistuu varmaan alle puoleen koska kaikkeen laitetaan maitoa.

Makes me think that there could be a tags that moderators could slap on posts, like prefixing the title with a red Misleading or something.

I kind of assume the latter is to prevent identity theft. It’s reasons like these that make selfhosting single user instances appealing as you know it’s your account and you have access to the database.

I really hope commenting via Pleroma becomes a bit more viable in the near future so I can use this account mostly for cleanup tasks.

Mastodon is actually built to be social while Twitter just hones its algorithms. There’s so much Twitter could straight up copy from Mastodon and it would make it so much better. Eugen and the community have gotten a lot of things right.

Alkuperäistä The New York Times -julkaisun linkkiä kun seuraa ja lukee niin sielt selviää että Biden ja kumppanit tavallaan myönsivät että Obaman aikaiset pakotteet eivät saanee yhtään mitään aikaiseksi vaikka odotettiin että Venäjän olisi pakko perääntyä.

Been trying graphical text editors here and there but the vi-emulators just aren’t Neovim.

I’ve asked the same and the answer is that there’s nothing they can do as lemmy.ml is in some spam blocklist.

Actually get one of my programming projects to a state where showing it off would be meaningful.

Discord combines a lot of use cases in to one package. You get voice chat, modern chatrooms, video sharing/streaming, direct messages, group messages/calls etc.

But more importantly it operates on a paradigm where a user joining a “server” means you join all the channels automatically, and access to certain channels can then be revoked or gated instead of granted. This is the exact opposite of what, for example IRC had done (and what Matrix/Element still does to a large extent), and it fosters communities as one group of people can have an n amount text/voice channels dedicated to different conversational topics. This is very useful, even if it’s just for a friend group of 5 people. It is no wonder FOSS projects use Discord when it is so useful for it.

Ironically, what Discord does would work incredibly well as a decentralized system. I cannot believe it’s taking this long for the FOSS community create an alternative.

Rather than trying to persuade people to use either incompatible or insufficient alternatives, we must call people to arms and actually create an alternative. Matrix/Element is getting very close and we need more people improving the ecosystem.

Element still needs a UX overhaul and voice channels and the basic building blocks are already there then.

Lemmy is the place you’d want to move people to in case of a greater calamity as federated Lemmy is by nature more community controlled than Reddit or any centralized alternative could literally ever be.

I feel you should just redirect people here anyway before it’s too late. I’m sure the mods here might need help anyway in case of a big influx of users.

Not being allowed to punch people in the face is also at odds with someone who really likes punching people in the face.
