This article is about communities that shut down their forums to move to Discord. Generally speaking, running an instance of say, Vboard or whatever isn’t very much harder than running a Lemmy instance, or something like that, so that might be one reason why it wasn’t generally considered a desirable alternative for them.

1: SumatraPDF is for Windows.

2: They were asking what epub reader I’m using in the screenshot.

They absolutely could. I’m hardly a barber but I cut my own hair with some proficiency. I’d assume a master barber would be even more prepared to do this than I am.

Siempre he amado esta canción…

Thanks! Me too. My favorite thing about Xfce is how customizeable it is. I can make Xfce look like any other DE, pretty much, if I want. I can even emulate Windows or macOS if I so wished. People have an idea that Xfce is really old or looks bad, and I disagree.

I don’t really listen to blackbear, but I do keep a station on Pandora for contemporary stuff so I don’t get too far behind on what people are listening to, lol. This is just what was playing at the moment.

I get your point but it does exist, yet all these op-eds just sort of shrug their arms and say “well if ONLY there were something better!” after having done exactly 0 research (or perhaps directly maliciously)

Everyone always acts like the Fediverse doesn’t exist for some reason

I’m using the word “liberal” in the way it is generally understood in the United States right now. I’m not referring to “classical liberalism.” And deplatforming may work for getting certain kinds of speech off a platform, but ensuring these people interact solely with each other only ensures their right-wing ideas fester in private and bubble up to the surface later, much worse.

Yes. The liberal tendency to excommunicate people from polite society and shove them into underground spaces where these horrible rightoid ideas fester has created this type of thing. It’s like a teenager trying to cover their acne by letting their long hair cover their face. It’s making it worse.

I miss how good last.fm was around ~2010

I actually think Reddit is pretty smart about this, archiving old content in six months.

Yeah, which sucks. Honestly it’s just a good reason to not use Spotify lol

Exactly. The fact that most of the community here leans “tankier” is not the same thing as censorship. Plenty of people disagree on the main Lemmy instance and simple disagreements hardly ever result in things like bans.

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! Now I have FOSS Pandora and Spotify clients for desktop. Now if only there were good mobile clients…

EDIT: nevermind, only works for premium accounts lmao

Thank you for this! I have some issues browsing the web on my phone and laptop because it gets slow, and this makes a night/day difference for me.

If Pidgin had these features, it would be unstoppable.

I think it would really only take a few extra features to make Pidgin the best IM application out there in every possible way: …

Pidgin is actually closer to having voice and video support than many might think - in fact voice and video were working on XMPP (before the massive overhauls to this protocol that broke everything) and even now, voice works in Telegram. …

If you’re okay with installing some third-party addons, Pidgin is capable of connecting to virtually every chat protocol today, including Matrix, Telegram, Facebook, and so many more…

I’m working on a reconstruction of English folk religion designed in a way that is accessible and native-feeling for modern English speakers. This is a work in progress and will likely change over time, but I’ve finally gotten most of my thoughts down in one place after working on this for a long ti…

This game looks pretty kickass, actually…

Steam Group for Lemmynauts

Hello all, I’ve made a Steam group for Lemmynauts to find one another and play games together. Feel free to join!..

Lemmy Group on Steam?

You know, it might be fun to have a Lemmy group on Steam so Lemmynauts can find each other and play games together :)…


Thrilled to see this.

I’ve been a huge fan of DOOM since I was far too young to be playing it. I have a soft spot for the classic games and still regularly play them. I’m very excited to see this community here! (Especially since maybe it will help me find people to multiplayer with!)…


Gemini Link Aggregator? (Hypothetical)

I was wondering today - would it hypothetically be possible to create a Lemmy/Reddit-style link aggregator completely in Geminispace? It seems like it would be an interesting project!..

In other news, I’m old…
