About post-USSR, my native language is russian and Russia turns more others languages in daily use, i think need select importent goal for support it.

I don’t completely understand what you said here, i assume your english is not very good (English is also not my first language so i understand getting good at it is tough, just keep reading and practicing!, I think it’s one of the most useful skills you can ever work on).

If the main problem is that you don’t know english well and can’t provide a translation have a look at how liberapay does it (look at the upper right corner of the homepage). you could have others provide a english translation (but probably the sooner you will add a translation infrastructure the better).

Cool project btw!


How do you make a dating site that is specifically for post USSR countries?

are you aware of alovoa? Maybe you could collaborate to some degree.

I also think you can pretty easily generalize it to a “friend finding” website (something like bumble bff). You could specify activities you want to do with someone like exercise or walking or some interest and find people.


Could be useful if it could also have courses like headspace or unified mindfullness or a MBSR course.

Something like libretexts for mediation, with the courses being open content (or maybe even enabling buying some courses, I don’t mind paying for quality content and help someone make a living).




Are you aware of lenny? i think it is already trivially easy to bypass the filter. I think the main reason you don’t see here the type of aggressive communication you don’t want is because they already have ruqqus which might be a good substitute (But i don’t know about enough about the feature set of lemmy and ruqqus to be sure). Plus the main instance is the most used and it does have a spam filter.


No mention of nix, i have been using it for a while as a flatpak/snap alternative it’s working ok. It’s still somewhat glitchy but seeing how nixos packages are getting more and more investment i am hoping nix will get more polished and easier to use.

Also no mention of gnu-guix which also seems interesting and is similar to nix (although less populer), what i like about nix and guix that they don’t have to start downloading unneeded dependencies to use a package (basically they are less bloated).


background: liberapay is a open source alternative to patreon (recurring donations to people and projects)




cataclysm dda (played the desktop version, very nice).

unciv (havent gotten around to playing with it, but looks good).





Do you have a source for this? the blog does not show any update on the subject, the registration page also says they are still blocked.



Wayland is basically a protocol, it is the implementations where the heavy lifting is done. Some implementations seem to be working really great (Sway and the library it uses for wayland support called wlroots and possibly other mature window managers based on it), gnome wayland seems better then gnome xorg when it comes to stuff like screen tearing and other stuff seem worst. KDE is still a work in progress.

The argument of “wayland is X years old and does not work yet” is also problematic because it is used a lot in embedded (where it is mainstream and probably it’s benefits are more prominent) and attempting to port it to desktop (at least seriously) is a relatively recent endeavor.





I don’t think so, if you would look at hubzilla for example you would see that the number of instances grew smaller yet the number of active users grew significantly. I think that for most people when it comes to self hosting “the juice isn’t worth the squeeze” and they are better of in some instance of some dedicated nonprofit like feneas or disroot.


he is basing his conclusions based on the-federation.info, Which does not report accurately the number of active users, some of the most popular projects (in term of number of instances as you can see on the front page), don’t report the number of active users, while diaspora which does report active users seem to be in decline .

The number of instances increased a lot (from 5600 to 7300). Asking that projects such as peertube and pleroma will report active users will help us get a more accurate picture. also having information about the number of instances and active users every year so we could see if there is growth every year could also help.



statcounter has shown no real growth (they are using the stats shown on netmarketshare) , i doubt there is real growth.
