Since yesterday 9gag started hiding and filtering all my posts that shows the war from the Russian side.
although the ghost of Kyiv and the soldiers of the snake island confirmed to be fake stories made by the Ukrainians but still the users are allowed to post things about them.
the Russian side is showing a real damage to the Ukrainian forces and the infrastructure but no one want to believe it.
if you post Russian soldiers capturing Ukrainians your post will be filtered, if you post Ukrainians capturing Russian soldiers, you are most welcome.
Also, 9gag is allowing posts that show how to make Molotovs and lethal booby-traps but yet still allowed, although these could cause damages to people, and not necessarily used against Russians.
The result of this is that 9gag joined the force to show the world what they want the world see, not the truth.
if you post anything that tell the truth about how the Ukrainian army is losing, or anything about how many people got killed by criminals because Ukrainian government started giving guns to people without background check, then your posts will be filtered.
I see from my prospective that lemmy listing on mobile need more improvements, its not that bad, but not prefect at the same time, still you can read with no issues, but why not if something perfect can run with modern user experience?
i don't use reddit but few days ago i visited it on mobile for curiosity and found that reddit has a view mode named "Card View", and i can`t deny i loved it as a design.
So, do you think lemmy should do the same soon?, giving more ability to users to switch between view modes?
At least for me its very difficult to make the line between preventing hate speech and allowing the freedom.
I'm thinking to launch a lemmy instance, but the targeted audience is very sensitive to religion topics, and i'm sure if i allow it, this could lead hate to speech at some point and may fuel violence.
Also, from my prospective, i just want my audience find new good things far from porn, porn sites are a lot, and i don`t want to mix it with other topics that can very constructive.
So please tell me your opinion, if banning these 2 topics can effect the freedom of speech.
Sorry, i don`t know if this is the correct community to share my thoughts, but I'm wondering if lemmy team does trending posts instead of communities.
As most of us know, trending widgets are to attract the attention to specific topics, and titles play a big role in this.
i believe if lemmy team switches the trending communities in the sidebar to show trending topics the widget will paly bigger role to extend the reading time.
Share your thoughts if you agree or not.
Its not a secret that no ads on lemmy, which makes the process more difficult paying for hosting to keep your instance only, so tell me!
How do you fund your lemmy instance?
do you sell products through lemmy?
Donations? how you convince people to donate to your instance?
Do you sell subscriptions? how?
So me and my team planning to run our lemmy instance, but i was thinking what cam make lemmy complete at the same time respects the privacy of the users.
I need to know the below:
1- Best alternative to Cloudflare.
2- Best alternative to Google analytics.
3- "Recommend use to support lemmy to work properly"
I hear a lot about cloudflare on lemmy, users sounds unhappy with it for many reasons, so its very important to me to how we can replace cloudflare when we launch our instance.
Ghislaine Maxwell plans at her criminal trial to challenge prosecution claims that she “groomed” underage girls for the late financier Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse, and to offer testimony that her accusers might have faulty memories.
I have a good experience with digitalocean when it comes to technical stuff, or computing stability, most of my apps hosted there are business related apps, has nothing to do with public opinion.
but recently i decided to launch a lemmy instance that allows freedom of speech with very less restrictions, and i'm still thinking to put the service on digitalocean, but i don`t know if digitalocean is good when it comes to freedom of speech, because i don`t want to wake up at the morning and find that they blocked my account and deleted all my data because they didn`t like what my users are talking about.
Note: Less restrictions means (no pornography, child pornography, terrorist group and violence support, copyrighted materials trade).
I have postponed my lemmy project till the RTL is implemented, i have changed my language for test to an RTL one here in lemmy to see how it looks, but i can say does not look good.
i appreciate if you can tell if there is any plans to allow RTL in lemmy soon.
I was checking my profile settings, looking for arabic language but found that its not implemented yet.
if i install lemmy in future, do i need to install arabic to my instance separately or it will come our of the box?
I'm not into these cloud and docker stuff.
i have limited knowledge of installing software on VPS.
i have installed discourse on digitalocean successfully, it was simple even with docker presence.
Is there any type of resources that explains the installation process step by step for beginner people like me?
