Should I use prosody or ejabberd (or other) for the xmpp server?
Context: I'm using a 1GB server to run all my apps; Email server, Peertube, Pleroma. I feel like a psychopath but it's all running well with a swap file to keep things from killing itself with OOM. Basically it has to be lightweight. It doesn't have to be easy to set up, just the software has to be future proof and runs on low resources. Thanks in advance...

So basically I'm sat here with a server that has been running for almost a month. an html website, pleroma, and peertube. basically everything I need for content creation, but I haven't done nothing, not a post (that has any value). I don't really know how to make videos, I kinda have some ideas, I have like a script writing software that I'm in the middle of figuring out.. but.. I have no idea how this thing really works. I have a set of interests already established so that's that. how does someone start out as a video content creator?

Does peertube need an algorithm?
If it were up to my opinion. the short answer is yes. if the topics/genres that I were interested in, i.e. I searched for, I clicked, gets recommended more. For a privacy perspective it might be a bad thing depending how it was implemented, it's quite unlikely that the algorithm is is done externally, or locally on a users machine, it would likely be from the server and stored there too. unless we have something like a peertube client that could sync the preference data between devices. either that, or we'll have to encrypt it. if we so care much about privacy. but decentralization definitely helps. Now on the topic of addiction is a whole another discussion, it may vary for user to user. I'm not an expert in this but for me I can control what I want to do fairly well. I tend to scroll through the recommendations at leisure, when I want to look for useful information like guides, tutorials, advice on a skill i'd use the search bar, categories, or try sift through the recommendations. *a while ago I was mindlessly scrolling and quickly made aware of it, I despised the feeling and avoided doing the same thing. other might be still stuck in a loop. i'm... not sure.* the recommendations from algorithm are the ones that had "gems" aka information that would helped me tremendously that I wasn't specifically looking for and higher quality videos. It's like a double edged sword, depending on the user's intent, or.. control of their intent. that is definitely a problem to some people, so we should give them an option to make it more adhd friendly. --- I'd like to say in defense of algorithms if it were something I knew what it was doing. I'd be in favour of. it's more of a discoverability function, like what's poppin on peertube y'know? I haven't found anything good for a while, it's very rare and like mostly found on accident or via youtube. maybe it's just that we haven't seen any massive adoption here, but I don't really know, what do you think?

you could start your own peertube instance, jus sayin’. I don’t think an instance for vtubers exists just yet.

saying this while having the imperialist drip

They don’t accept instance follows for some weird reason, despite this hurting discoverability

Should I make a lemmy instance, but only for learning skills and at that a somewhat serious one?
I've thought about it, something about managing my time between having fun and doing work. If i did create an social environment with a set of rules that strictly focuses on developing skills, and, that is, it could be any skills as long as the community is focused. There is one offer I heard some time ago from the lemmy org itself giving out free hosting for instances. It might be a chance for me to do so, however there is many caveats. For one I'm pretty lazy and I don't sometimes feel like managing and moderating. But I think It's fine if I'm like that as the rules are pretty clear, (which I'll explain after). I probably have to choose whether I should federate or not, for one people from other instance could help others or maybe it'll attract spam and unwanted, unfocused comments and post from other users. Alright, to get the idea of what it would be like; for the description and rules: A lemmy instance for learning. 0. everything from lemmy.ml 1. You can only comment related to the topic, and if it'll be helpful 2. You can only post discussions, you may not aggregrate links. All resources can only be added in the community description. 3. If a person post Art or Writing or some other media, and if the person asked for criticism you may only respond of what is requested, if the person asks to recieve criticism privately, then do so. 4. if you want to give advice and you think it'll be helpful but the person did not ask, please send them a message privately with a re:/reference in the header. 5. You cannot make communities unrelated to learning. nots: 1. You cannot post anything unrelated to each corresponding community 2. You cannot post memes, or posting for jokes. as this is a focused space. Guidelines for starting a community: 1. Be concise in the description, and write down the rules needed to make a good learning environment. 2. Add learning resources for the community, you may discuss with them which is the best resources. 3. If you want to build a community but just started studying, you may discuss it with others to find helpful members and find resources. you can search for resources through https://learn-anything.xyz 4. You can have fun, put up events related to the study topic. it might just help people be motivated. ---

I like linux, I like coding, I like music, I like gaming, I like essays, I like writing, I like art…

if you introduce me something that is cool I will probably find it cool.

You can say I like everything that is interesting. but with a few preferences.

We don’t have a sub like that, unfortunately

oh wait, I thought this sub is for posting the worst idea ever

I think we should add a feature where I can delete other people’s comments

Ask yourself this first, what is your objective using these tools?; Do you want to socialize, or do you have some other objective? Or even do you think using this will help you or will it be a problem that may hinder you instead of helping you do the thing you want to do?

The dilemma you are asking for an answer is meaningless without the context of the question. Possibly one is best for one thing or the other. But I know for a fact if you tried both and understood what you want to do, you can decide it for yourself. After all it’s just a matter of personal preference and the usage case.

who do you follow on peertube? & which instances should I follow?
I have a instance, with one person, which is I alone. I also don't follow any instances. Thought it might be a good idea to ask people who they follow for a suggestion.

I’m taking a break.
I'm pretty happy with the theme I have now. It's personal and "proprietary software", I won't be sharing this one cool thing I have :> but, I'm sure you all can theme stuff yourself and tweak it to your liking. a few days ago when i first started, what I did basically was a bit messy and hacky. I couldn't find the CSS classes (I didn't look close enough between the lines) so I just kind of went off and copy a lot of CSS paths and then combine the base theme and the junk i've written. that's why the previous themes aren't install-able directly through the Stylus browser addon. you had to pick the base theme from the settings. Then I learnt a bit about bootstrap. and how it works. but it doesn't matter if you're theming lemmy. bootstrap CSS basically manages columns, divs, and such, with classes. in our case we just want to modify their shape, colors and borders. Some classes are missing in lemmy-ui that needs to fall into place so there aren't seemingly missing elements, and generally easier to theme. i'll probably work on that in my free time. but of course, no promises. one other thing if I've done that, I wanna write a documentation on lemmy's css. I think most fediverse platforms need this (e.g. peertube) explaining the CSS. I had to figure it out which-affects-what using browser tools and it was tedious. Often times I miss some button colors that are more hidden. If I do it It's gonna take a lot of time and effort. But.. I could write it just little by little. I probably don't wanna do it alone, I'll be glad if someone wants to give me a hand. So anyway, That's the plan at least. I'm gonna take care of my health and a lot of things I want to do, so, see you later.

I’d like to sit around and discuss politics with like as such

Best PeerTube hosting provider?
asking for a friend.

how about the lite version

you should try fedilab, but i never used friendica with it though

i was planning on doing that, sure!

You (could) hide the up and down button with:

.vote-bar {
    display: none;

whoa, I thought it was the green that was a bit weird for the default theme. but this doesn’t look too bad.


@dessalines@lemmy.ml, do you still need something like that? re: https://lemmy.ml/post/34872

I think you don’t necessarily need to change it, for my needs I just need more css classes to add more css so it doesn’t conflict, like the way I use it with bootstrap v4 based css paths/selectors at the moment. It’s a bit hacky and improper. (Also it’s not enough with just bootstrap classes, if you wanna make diverse themes too)

You could try… I had DR on my shelf for a while and I never gotten through playing it. I’m not sure how much fans are here

some different features, but well, it’s all pretty similar (all for microblogging). I hate managing different accounts so I just use one. just use what you like the most. you can follow everyone still.

if you’re a normal user first you have to apply the theme that it’s based on, and then use Stylus to apply the theme on the webpage. be sure to use the {theme-name}.diff.css if you’re using this method.

Lemmy markdown headings are really big and ugly
## I don't know about you guys But as an everyday markdown user # the formatting is really big like really, really big. ### it's pretty distracting to read but it does kind of make it somewhat different and special ... ``` wha- what the- why does code formatting doesn't have a different background``` anyway #### I think you should change this to something readable then again I really don't know how to code is it css? ah fuck was it font-size? or is like text-size or font.. something? oh wait, nevermind, this pink theme looks much better. ahhh, this is nice.

I don’t know if you’re talking about fullscreen doesn’t work, or how it doesn’t follow tiling. I’m assuming the first. I remember using dwm because of how aesthetic it looks with a black and white color scheme but straight out doesn’t wanna work with fullscreen games (shows black screen, or nothing at all). I tried a patch fix but I also failed in that part. so after a few days I moved to awesomeWM and it works pretty well. disabling autofocus helps with that. though I don’t play games anymore and now I use sway.

[Writing Prompt] You transferred into a highschool today. when you came into the class you noticed something in disbelief.
Dead people came back alive and were sitting in rows. The rows were younger variant of Jesus Christ, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and many, many more. The school is filled with students, the most important figures from history from two thousand years ago up until recently were all here. You came into that class you were assigned into with a teacher, she told you to introduce yourself to the class...

that’s ideal. but free speech on youtube is sort of okay at the moment. (except for nazis, but I don’t really care about them)

for that I’d have to make some sort of contact first, maybe through collaboration and friendships. then I can ask them to come over. I don’t really want to be reposting them either, moreso if they aren’t gonna be active on the fediverse.

I was thinking before that maybe I should make a peertube instance for the missing types of people (Artists/Musicians/Animators/Essayists/Reviewers/etc) (I have no idea what the name is) it’ll be open for registration and i’ll promote it to hell with my friends and myself. but for an account I need to interview each people if they’ll fit the criteria for my instance. it won’t be an instance for such people who just want to mess around or if there is already an instance for them. For that I just need volunteers for interviewers.

I see, i hope they do do that. thought when the dino account said “…compatible with other XMPP applications…” other xmpp applications might support it as well.

group video calls in xmpp?
I heard in dino you could do that https://fosstodon.org/@dino/107787204408646020 I don't have anyone to test it, but I'm guessing it'll work as said. how about between apps like conversations, gajim and dino? on each app pages the features aren't clear whether it does these things. --- also, for security reasons i'm thinking of when xmpp will implement something like totp.

is selfhosting public stuff like XMPP, Email, ActivityPub, on a homeserver good for privacy?
if I have communications with someone through the internet with a homeserver. I would inevitably give out my IP address. Is that a bad thing? In my country they don't have services like that, RTCing would be a bit sluggish using available euro servers.

How do I get my own domain for free? [QUESTION]
Don’t really want to spend much on a domain name. Criteria; free, Doesn’t show personal info on whois lookups. Thanks in advance. - Rei
