That is normal if lemmy.ml users only subscribed to the community recently. They only receive new posts (or posts where a new comment/vote/edit was made). You can also fetch posts/comments one by one by pasting the lemmygrad url in the lemmy.ml search field.

Afaik Harmony OS is just a fork of Android, not like they rewrote it from scratch (that would take a lot more time).

Thanks, looks like I will have to wait a while longer.

Why do you think that the upgrade will cause issues?

My Huawei phone still seems to run on Android (according to the kernel version). Does anyone know more details when this will be available?

There are many possibilities in writing new frontends for Lemmy. One could also create a traditional forum with chronological threads and no voting (like phpbb).

I think it would be relatively easy to write a stackoverflow type frontend for Lemmy. That could be done in any language, and would work similarly to the existing lemmy-ui. Then you would get federation for free, and the Lemmy backend would only need some minor changes.

I think your community will not fit well on lemmy.ml, but not necessarily because of the code if conduct. The thing is that this site is still relatively small, and every thread shows up on the frontpage at one time or another. Because this community is quite leftist, you can expect comments from these people, and probably some kind of conflict.

Luckily there is a solution for that. Lemmy uses federation, which means that anyone can start their own instance, with their own rules. Users on different instances can communicate with each other very easily. You could consider putting your on one of the existing instances, but /r/moderatepolitics is quote big, so you probably want your own instance sooner or later. Hosting an instance is relatively easy, and I’m sure you can find someone in your community who can do that.

Info about existing instances and hosting a new one

Osmand is great, especially for hiking its better than google maps. Only disadvantage is that it has almost no businesses listed.

Me neither. Maybe its cause youre an admin the button gets hidden. @dessalines@lemmy.ml

Problem is that there is no good domain available.

You’re an admin, you really dont have to make a request for this ;)

If the last statement in a function has no semicolon at the end, it will automatically be returned from the function (just like using the return function). If it has a semicolon, nothing will be returned (which is the unit type () in your error message).

First it was the power outage in Texas, then the pipeline stopped working, now this. Anyone wanna take bets what will be the next major failure in the “greatest country on earth”?

I made a longer comment here. If you still dont know what the problem is after reading that, then I really dont know how to explain it to you.

I think the main thing thats necessary is for users to accept that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It is normal that people disagree, and discuss their disagreements. But those discussions shouldnt be done with the goal of convincing or proselytizing each other. Rather the goal should be to understand each other better. Maybe we should turn this into a site rule?

@soferman@lemmy.ml has shown that he is not able to do this, so I decided to ban him from /c/worldnews, here is my comment which explains it a bit more. Also check out my previous comment in case you didnt see it (I made a mistake there, I really should have called out soferman as well).

Regarding the part about DW and other news sources, I think it would be interesting to make a new community to discuss that. We can have a threat for each website, and discuss their biases and perspectives. Of course that will need good moderation, people calling “conspiracy theory” or “fascist” with nothing to back it up should not be permitted.

Thanks for confirming. I will take this opportunity to ban you from /c/worldnews, because of your hostile behaviour there. This is something I should have done long ago. The main reason I didnt is that I didnt want to give the impression that you were targeted because of our political disagreements. But the fact is that you are causing too much trouble. Take this as a warning, if you keep being hostile to other users, you will get a site ban.

I sent a message to @pixelfed@mastodon.social which is listed as the contact info, but didnt get any reply. And now it looks like they removed the registration page again.

Unfortunately it is impossible to change the domain of a federated instance, it would break all kinds of things for connected instances.

I would like to use lemmy.social, but iirc it was either already taken or crazy expensive to buy.

Some websites block lemmy.ml links, for example Facebook as you can see in the screenshot below. …

Whilst the European Union talks of matters such as “strategic autonomy” and idealizes itself as a unified, independent force for good in the world, the reality could not be further from the truth. Espionage revelations are just the tip of the iceberg of a variety of ways in which the United States…
