I updated the Spanish subtitles based on your improvements. Thank you very much for your help!


Here it is: https://cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/edit/TzMSPVLi5xyPE0X3dFCRsFiu/

Thank you for fixing English translation! More translations welcome :-)


I think intellectual property does not exist and copyright is based on a lie. You can watch this short video on Peertube: https://kolektiva.media/w/fYv5ELRxj1MtQvT5viTCes?subtitle=en


Compulsory education arrived with industrialization. If children are in the school their parents can be working in the factory.


I recommend you to read about consensus and decision making for grassroots. They are some cool books and websites. They are many local groups that coordinate on big social movements using this techniques (without anyone representing others to take decisions). They are slower, they take more time, but there is not power accumulation and are far more democatic.



A little clarification about the terminology I use: I use the term “free software” as RMS coined it (“free like in freedom”) and as GNU strictly defines on its website. They are some similar MIT licenses (the most common one is X11). Anyway they are very similar, free and GNU GPL compatible as you can read here: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#Expat http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#X11License

MIT licenses and other ones (BSD…) are free but are not “copyleft”. They don’t require all modified and extended versions of the program to be free software as well. Perhaps, that’s what you mean when you say “!= free”!

Note that all the source code in the public domain is free and not copyleft too so I agree with RMS when he defines copyleft software as a subset of all the existing free software (now and in the future, when all tends to become public domain).

In fact, GNU distinguishes more kind of slightly different free licenses:

  • Strong copyleft: GPL, AGPL…
  • Weak copyleft: LGPL, WxWidgets…
  • Non copyleft: X11 (“MIT”), FreeBSD…

Note: free software != GPL compatible. EUPL 1.1 and 1.2 are free software but they are not compatible with GPL. http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#EUPL-1.1

Sorry for this long comment. My English is quite poor so probably some parts are difficult to understand. If someone wants clarifications of this clarifications, just say it and I’ll try again 😅


I don’t want to ruin your joke but MIT is both, free and open at the same time.

MIT licensed software is free/libre software according to GNU and is “open source” according to OSI.


Suppose you took a photo and publish it under CC BY license. If someone uses it on an article and references your photo properly, the article can have any license because it’s not an adaptation/remix of your photo, the article just has your photo inside. If you publish the photo under CC BY-SA license, the same applies (in this case, the reference to your pohoto in the article will be slightly different).

Now suppose that you publish your photo under CC BY license and someone makes and adaptation/remix of it. For example the new work is your photo cropped and with some filters applied. The author of the adaptation can add the NonCommertial clause to the derivative work. He/she can license its new work with CC BY-NC license or with CC BY-NC-SA, stopping any commertial use of the adaptation and if he/she wants getting paid for any commerdial use.

But if you publish your photo under CC BY-SA license, this is not possible. The adaptation of your photo must use the same license. The remix, the derivative work, must be CC BY-SA too! To make any other use, the adaptor needs your permission.

Did I explain myself?

You have more info in the Creative Commons FAQ:


The site home explains it is on “low maintenance mode”.

Here you can find some similar info (just basic indicators): https://fedidb.org/software/lemmy


To really know what solarpunk is I recommend you to read its manifesto: https://lemmy.ml/post/57382


You can follow that info and other related ones here: https://the-federation.info/lemmy

Note: in the past Lemmy’s API fixed the way to count users.


The option to list only the local communities in the Communities page.

This would be very appreciated by the instances other than lemmy.ml, specially the little ones where it’s difficult for local users to find the existing local communities. You can see an example here: https://lemmy.eus/communities

Perhaps the default value of this filter could be managed by the “subscribed | local | all” option on the settings, like the posts on the home page.


In English, for example lemmy.glasgow.social (it’s as big as the non English instance I participate on). I think this instance could be a good place to build and grow English speaking communities.

26 instances listed here: https://the-federation.info/lemmy


I agree with you some critics about the moderation on lemmy.ml, specially the north korean legitimation.

But I think you are mixing the (main) instance and the software. A more logical conclusion could be to decentralice Lemmy instances/comunities more. The software itself has not the problems you are talking about. Other free softwares are used by polemic/disgusting/troubling groups (WordPress, Linux, LibnreOffice, Firefox…) including fediverse ones (Matrix, Mastodon…) and we should not conclude that the software itself or the network is bad. Isn’t it?

Why don’t move to another instance? You have quite some interesting options already. Why don’t enforce other instances and comunities? Lemmy let’s you do that. All us agree on that!


A bunch of papers always will be more eco-friendly than any electronic gadget!


I think that the fediverse has already taken off. It’s not mainstream -perhaps never will be-, but it reached a critical mass and that’s crucial. The content network effect of the commercial social networks is very strong, but don’t forget it also carries drawbacks. Something similar happens with cities: many people want to life there (services, jobs, cultural offer…) but doing so also leads to problems (road traffic congestion, air quality and many more!).

Fediverse has proven it’s viable, is getting more mature and it’s gaining impulse on many different niches. I think these are all good signs. ‘Cities’ are going to exist for a long time (the capital’s machine is very strong), ‘towns’ need to keep working and fitting the needs of the burned migrants (respecting privacy, respecting languages, avoiding harassment…) without repeating the ‘cities’ errors: monetization of free giant services --> tons of adds, massive profilation, lack of privacy, development of addiction thought algorithms…

Let’s see how much the fediverse can grow (technological sovereignty of grass roots, governments…) and where is the equilibrium with the big commercial social networks. I’m sure we are in the beginning of a long and interesting transformation :-)



Yes, we did executing that command. We did it again today. Could you check please?



Basque lemmy instance
We have created an instance in Basque language called [lemmy.eus](https://lemmy.eus/). This is the second day so Basque people is signing up and creating communities right now! We also created a welcome site with the rules and other useful information: [kaixo.lemmy.eus](https://kaixo.lemmy.eus/)
