You always see car dealerships do this too, to advertise all the cars they’re not selling. Such a waste of energy and pointless light pollution.

That to me is a very necessary feature, for at least two reasons.

  • Internationalization: URLs are always latin chars, which would exclude any non-latin community or usernames.
  • More complex community names. You can see how ridiculous reddit community names can get, because they don’t allow spaces or non-latin characters, in either community or usernames. Spaces specifically is a necessary one for both, and URLs wouldn’t permit that.

Two rules, 1 and 2, specfically Misogyny and Trolling, and it was reported for such.

The same person who posted Do you think men are becoming more beta nowadays?, and why don’t you expletive fat girls??? created an askawoman community. Use another server to make blatantly misogynist troll communities.

#2 is fixed in the next release btw.

What does #1 mean?

Yeah I think so, but I have no idea how “trust” works in IPFS.

In torrents, you have to explicitly be seeding that torrent: if you don’t want to seed the file(s), you remove the torrent. With IPFS I think people can just throw whatever in there.

Jellyfin has an opensubtitles plugin that does a good job of finding subtitles in any given language.

Now you know why there needs to be a decentralized picture storage hosting that works for the web, in the same way torrents do for even larger data like video.

You have tons of servers hosting the exact same pictures needlessly while sharing none of the hosting costs.

Pictures should be working smoothly now.
All the old pictures are restored from a backup, and should be working now. We've bought more hard drive space too, so we should be okay for a while.

Okay, old pictures should be back now.

Probably not, that would mean two separate pict-rs instances for a single lemmy instance.

We bought some extra hard drive space and are in the process of uploading the backed up pictures. Should be fixed within a few days.

Lemmy Release v0.16.7 - A few bug fixes
A few bug fixes: - Fix missing auth on new post refresh. ([#764]( - Change CSP rule for connect-src (websocket) to wildcard (fixes [#730]( ([#737]( - Increase default search rate limit. ([#2424]( - Rejected federated pm from blocked users (fixes [#2398]( ([#2408]( - Handle Like, Undo/Like activities from Mastodon, add tests (fixes [#2378]( ([#2380]( - Revert "Handle Like, Undo/Like activities from Mastodon, add tests (fixes [#2378]( ([#2380](" - Handle Like, Undo/Like activities from Mastodon, add tests (fixes [#2378]( ([#2380]( - Dont allow login if account is banned or deleted (fixes [#2372]( ([#2374]( - Fix panics in search_by_apub_id() (fixes [#2371]( ([#2373](

Sry just logging on now. I banned a couple of the transphobes, and the main one banned himself before I got a chance to do so. I made a bunch of recommendations for how to fix this systemically in our admin chat. Some of them here:

  1. We need to ban transphobes here faster (no bigotry is already in our sidebar, but for some reason transphobia isn’t explicitly named, so I’m gonna try to add that).
  2. We should consider people’s activity outside this instance when deciding whether to ban. Looking at it now, its silly to not consider a person’s full internet persona. Not that we need to have foreknowledge of what they’ve done, but when things are brought to our attention, we need to act on them.
  3. Me and nutomic need to do less moderating, and more coding. Even tho this is the dev instance, we need to have some more separation between ppl coding for lemmy, and those moderating it. Moderating is a much worse use of our time anyway than coding or fixing things.
  4. We need to appoint more moderators, because its clear these things weren’t attended to quickly enough.

Also I apologize for not getting to these things quickly enough, and want to thank you, ,, and everyone else for your work in that thread yesterday.

Welcome to Lemmy, I'm one of the devs and admins for this instance. Being pro-piracy, and allowing torrent magnet links 🏴‍☠️ , is one of the original reasons I started working on lemmy ( even a lot of the better reddit alts refuse to allow magnet links, or be pirate-friendly). One of the best ways to keep the stream alive, is by decentralizing the ways we find and access content. Torrents do this directly for data, but I hope that lemmy, as a federated reddit alternative, can eventually serve as a platform to aggregate, post, and comment on pirated data in a decentralized way. [More info about Lemmy including docs, how federation works, and a good onboarding site.]( Welcome aboard!

## What is Lemmy? Lemmy is a self-hosted social link aggregation and discussion platform. It is completely free and open, and not controlled by any company.
