Checked and it works now. Thanks guys!



Yes, exactly. Ok great, so I’ll check in 24 hours then, thanks.


Another bug - when clicking on the full nickname @pioneer@voyager.lemmy.ml here - https://ds9.lemmy.ml/user/44, it redirects me to the incorrect address https://ds9.lemmy.ml/user/https://voyager.lemmy.ml/u/pioneer.



Works now! Found a bug - seems my display name isn’t federated, it shows just @pioneer@voyager.lemmy.ml.


A noob question: how can I subscribe to a remote community? Tried to type something like !testcom@ds9.lemmy.ml in the search on enterprise.lemmy.ml, but the search found nothing.


Maybe Zorin. But honestly, they’re all sort of ugly without customisation.


Yes, helped, thanks, so I consider it sorted.



Posts from not subscribed communites on the main page

On the main page, I’m seeing posts from communities I’m not subscribed to. Is that expected? Changing the sorting method doesn’t seem to help…


Is there a remote background login protocol?

I’ve spotted that on Friendica, another instance recognizes somehow that you’re a Friendica user from somewhere, and kind of logs you in as a remote user, if I remember things correctly. …



Also, wondering about the following:

  • why the client is imitating WhatsApp?
  • why there’s no system tray on Linux and I can even remember a discussion that it’s not needed?
  • why the desktop app top menu looks like a menu of a foreign wrapper?

Actually, since that time, it started working almost perfectly. I’ve got only one photo not delivered by some reason.



I think they’ve been researching ways to implement that, fingers crossed.


Is there a way to use the same account on multiple devices? I can remember it was a problem some time ago.


Rating calculations of federated posts and comments, will each instance have its own rating? So one instance has a post at the top, but another can have it with a lower ranking. Will remote upvotes count? What if an instance is not a Lemmy one and uses a different concept (i.e. likes/emojis) or does not use any rating at all?



Facebook shows who put which like, but likes at least don’t look like they have an influence on posts visibility (though they do have, I believe). A rating demands way more responsibility as it claims to have a direct influence, and every voter is aware of that. So yes, it requires a thorough discussion.


Is that Redditesque to hide who voted up and down and show just a total?




Federation with non-Lemmy instances that have no voting

I’d like to discuss the following. Imagine there is an instance that has groups and group discussions. Actually, Friendica has forums already. From what I know, these groups can be actually represented the same way in ActivityPub when federated, both on the Lemmy side and the other sides. And here c…


ASCII-lowercase-only community names - is that intentional?

The question in the subject. Was trying to set up names of some test communities for a local Lemmy instance on my laptop, and there is a restriction. Well, it looks aesthetically of course, and kind of old-school-like, and I like it, but I’d like to hear more on the background behind that, as well a…




Authentication in federated networks

Does anyone know if there are visions for the future of authentication in federated networks? A bit tired of creating accounts on multiple Fediverse servers, whereas in non-federated world you can log in using your social network account. How could a single sign-on approach look in the Fediverse? …


Why a post/comment receives +1 right after posting?

Well, I partly understand this, but anyway voting for or against your own content sounds a bit odd. Though I have no idea what else could be implemented instead of that. I have seen on Ruqqus they put 0 votes but prevent you from upvoting but not from downvoting your own content. Any thoughts from a…

Can anyone explain how subscription to a Lemmy entity will look like from Mastodon?

In the federated future, anyone in the Fediverse will be able to subscribe to a Lemmy entity (a user, a community etc.) from outside Lemmy. Can anyone explain which entities will be available to subscribe, and how it will look like for others? …


Would it be better to have a fixed-top navbar?

As in the example on the link, it looks nicer for me. Not opening an issue on GitHub as I’d like to discuss that first. Though I’ve just tried to add the fixed-top class to the nav element in my FF developer console, and it looks really weird…


Got a conversation with the Raddle guys, seems they include comments activity into their ranking

Still don’t get their algorithm in full, so reading the code. Will also follow some Raddle discussions to see how it works this way, as I’m really curious about different ranking approaches. They say a lot of downvoted comments should drown the post, and being new for a post is more important than b…


Does recent activity in a post influence the post's ranking?

That’s how it’s on Facebook. If you comment a very old post, it gets on top of its group. Still can’t spot the place in the code where rankings are calculated, I’m not a Rust dev, but according to the docs, they shouldn’t be taken into account, am I correct? Any thoughts on that, should it be taken …


Feature requests to Lemmy

The below is my personal wishlist. I fully understand it’s a long way to implement all of that. Everything is to be discussed. Correct me if some items from this list are already in the roadmap or have been implemented. …


Federation question: remote user follow

Am I understanding right there will be no remote user following, only remote community following?..


Submitting a post/comment from keyboard

Good now Lemmy’s working again, so I can ask questions here instead of Mastodon. Is there a way to submit a post/comment from keyboard? Say, with Ctrl+Enter or so?..


Can't find how to send a private message

I’m seeing an inbox link in the header, but can’t find a way to send a PM to a user. Am I missing something, it’s just hasn’t been implemented?..
