Cake day: Apr 18, 2019


We鈥檙e not perfect, just doing the best we can. If you demand that we are, I suggest you leave right now, because we can never be perfect.

To combat the anti-Semitic brigades over the last few days, we've made it so that new users have to fill out a registration application before they can join here.

This should help us cut down on the trolls. We recommend other instances do the same, because they will likely be targeted also. 鈥


I wouldn鈥檛 want a mass import like that here, but you could do on your own instance.

Even without tags, the searching is probably good enough to start one.

Either this, or using an optional &title= param is the only way I鈥檇 support this, and in that case you might as well include the whole post title, maybe changing spaces to underscores.

It鈥檇 be nice if there were some. I did a ton of LAN parties when I was in HS, and at that time every game let you host your own LAN server and play, even disconnected from the net if you wanted.

Ah cool. Should be easy enough to add, open up an issue on lemmy-ui with this info.

Sorry, I thought that was in response to your RSS comment. You can only block communities from your profile settings currently.

The RSS feed is advertised, on that button. There is an <a href to that RSS feed also, so I鈥檓 not sure why your browser extension wouldn鈥檛 pick it up.

Lemmy now has private instances, optional registration applications, optional email verification, and temporary bans! These are described in detail below. 鈥


We recently added private communities, and might eventually add some new user limitations鈥 but I鈥檓 very wary of reputation or gamified based systems, or one that isn鈥檛 welcoming for new users. It鈥檒l need lots of discussion before we add anything like that.

We added this a few months ago. Go to your profile settings, and the blocks tab.

Nice job! I鈥檒l be watching ur repo.

Could you open up a github issue for this one.

No, but there is a big mark all as read button to dismiss them all.

We could add helpers in the ui, like the one we have on the create post page for using an archive link. But overall I鈥檇 like a link aggregator to remain mostly agnostic about the links being posted ( we also do remove some tracking / utm params tho ).

The other thing is there are many of these 3rd party viewers, and they go down quite often and leave dead links. We鈥檇 use it if someone made a rust or js library for it tho.

We鈥檝e recently removed that logging line, which logged all websocket requests. But yes most importantly, the database stores no plaintext passwords.

You don鈥檛 want to client side hash passwords before sending, because different clients might not do it the same way. But also we have to add oauth at some point, so 3rd party clients don鈥檛 even have to know your pass. This is less important with open source apps imo, which are the only ones we鈥檙e gonna link to anyway, but it鈥檇 be nice to have.

The back-end already does password hashing using bcrypt.

Lemmy UI works with javascript disabled, but you can only read things, everything else doesn鈥檛 work.

While @nutomic@lemmy.ml and I do have a lot of issues that are going to take us a lot of time this upcoming year, its still useful for us to hear what your most desired features for Lemmy are, and prioritize them. 鈥


I find myself using them on pretty much every platform that has them: matrix, masto, discord, etc. 鈥


Today is an exciting day for the Lemmy project. 鈥


Used to do this with vim macros for lemmy, but a shell script is better鈥


Lemmy.ml now uses open federation.

You no longer have to ask us to add you manually, you can subscribe and interact without the approval process. 鈥


I thought this would be good to share, its an excerpt from an unpublished interview written in december 2020 about Lemmy鈥檚 origins and goals. 鈥
