Let’s say I hit submit on a post or reply, and then immediately notice a typo and edit it. Or I accidentally mis-swipe and downvote and then change it to an upvote.

In both cases, do both actions immediately get posted to the feed, or does the Lemmy instance wait a minute and combine (or overwrite) the actions so that only a single action gets published?

Please what are the easiest and fastest steps in order to find backup of a currently unavailable post thanks to no longer running Lemmy instance?

Lets say it is this post we are reading, that become offline. I am not asking for the links to instances that hosts it, but for the way on how to discover all the instances myself.

So far I have found only this way:

  1. open largest instances list: https://lemmyverse.net/?order=posts&open=true

  2. open one after another and under magnifier button, search for the same post ID (number) as your dead link has. One can also search for the post title (while making sure that the search scope is everywhere, not local).

A quick look at the https://join-lemmy.org/docs/administration/federation_getting_started.html does not answer that question. Though at least ChatGPT has an opinion (which may be misleading) 😀

the probability of it (the post) being distributed on multiple instances depends on factors such as the popularity of the post, the number of upvotes and comments it receives, and how widely it is shared across different instances. Posts that generate a lot of engagement and discussion are more likely to be distributed on multiple instances, as they are more likely to be shared and reposted by users. Additionally, posts that are deemed relevant or controversial may also be more likely to be spread across multiple instances.

I am unsure what it means by shared (i assume just posting a link is not enough).

If that is true that reposted (often called cross-posted) post makes a fully "featured" copy/backup on a different Lemmy instance, is there anything else that does it? Thank you

As title says. I had an account at lemmy.ml while back and got it deleted. Now I am trying to switch back to Lemmy.ml but during registeration. I get that error, that the user name is taken by user. But it's taken by my deleted account.

My handler is mahmoudk1000, cloud you please free it ? So I can reuse it.

Thanks in advance!

Anyone care to share their docker compose file for the upgrade? Or at least the pictrs portion? I've upgraded and migrated postgres to 16, but am having issues with the pictrs part.

Having account on https://lemmings.world, like 10 hours ago I have been trying to post a reply in a community that is hosted on a different instance (monero.town), the progress wheel was constantly turning on the Repply button and the browser developer console (F12) shown Error 502 Bad gateway ("invalid response from the upstream server" - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Status/502). "Bad gateway" error is shown by the Lemmy on login form at lemmings.world.

That turning wheel also appears on a new post/topic submission button (creating topic on external lemmy.ml community being on lemmings.world ).

After trying to search in my home instance, https://lemmings.world/search?q=502+error&type=All&listingType=All&page=1&sort=TopAll It output nothing and the console again shown Error 502:

...

I've created the community [email protected] from an account on lemmy.zip, but want to use my tchncs.de account to moderate and run it, so I transferred the community to my tchncs.de account.

I've changed content in the sidebar and pinned a post to the top, but both of those changes don't federate from tchncs.de to lemmy.zip

You can see the changes when viewing the community from tchncs.de but you don't see the changes when viewing the community directly on lemmy.zip

Both instances run Lemmy 0.19.4

How can this be resolved?

Some topic communities have very low member and post count and exist across various servers under various names. Can i add single post to lets say 4 on-topic communities or is it considered a bad idea. I am aware that I may be searching across different servers and communities so the duplicity is not ideal, but in terms of exposure in small communities, I would really like to do said duplicity.

I have been investigating if there is a community dedicated to Photon (a great Lemmy front-end) that doesn't seem to have an exclusive option to search for communities, does anyone know if there is an exclusive community for Photon (or Lemmy front-ends in general)?

…or is the new web interface huge? I'm using Firefox 126 and I've reduced the page size to a bearable 90%.

More importantly though, please try this test in your browser of choice (I haven't tested from a dedicated app):

  1. create a post (for the sake of this test all you have to do is press the "Create a post" button in the sidebar) in any community
  2. Fill the body text field so you have enough text to for at least one press of 'PgDn'. I've supplied three paragraphs of dummy text you can copy for your convenience at the end of this post. Make sure the focus is still in the body text area (you should see the area highlighted with an outline.)
  3. switch to any other tab you have open.
  4. switch back to your post tab

You should see that the page has jumped back to the top. This also happens when you press 'Preview' with focus in the text area: the page jumps to the top and doesn't preview the post! In fact, any time the text box loses focus, the page jumps to the top. Merely clicking outside the text area will make the page jump to the top.

I hope I've clearly explained the situation.

Is this displayed in any browser or just Firefox? Any OS or just Linux. Is this a bug or am I the only one experiencing these glitches? Any help/corroboration would be appreciated. Lemmy: the Tupolev Tu-144 of social media!® Thanks.

When I open certain small external community that i am subscribbed to https://lemmings.world/c/[email protected] , i see that moderator list is empty, yet when i visit same community via its parent domain https://lemmy.ml/c/session , i can see one moderator name. Clicking it, cause only page header and footer with no content https://lemmy.ml/u/Seb3thehacker , reloading page (F5) cause error couldnt_find_person. I am not logged in/nor registered on that external instance (lemmy.ml).

So this is confusing, how to become a moderator of an external community? Docs says that i do not need to register on it: "Community moderation can be done over federation, you don't need to be registered on the same instance where the community is hosted". Yet it does not explain steps to do. As I have mentioned, i am unable to contact current moderator. I guess one of my options may be to wait and see if current mod find me worthy and adds me as a mod. But i would like to know other options.

For example on my home instance i visit never before visited URL: https://lemmings.world/c/[email protected]

(I suspect that the home instance server were not aware about this external community at the time i have tried)

and it says "There was an error on the server. Try refreshing your browser." ... "The server returned this error: unknown."

Yet when i refresh/reload the page using F5 key like 1-2 seconds later, it loads the external community.

Can this be fixed so it reloads the page automatically or does not show this "unknown" error page and loads the external community directly even with some delay, so it does not confuse user and save the time?

For example, say an instance C is not defederated with B nor A. Can a user on A see users from B if they visit a community on C? If so, to what extent can the users from A and B interact with each other on C?

So I had made a post regarding sorting posts not working, but I have noticed another issue where some communities just don't have some older posts. I have tried both on web and on android app, and it's the same, tweaked some settings too.

So I have tried to search this community, Lemmy in general, and the GitHub issues on LemmyNet/lemmy repo, but didn't immediately see anything discussing this.

It would be really cool if Lemmy would trigger Firefox's new translation icon in the address bar based on the browser/OS/Lemmy language as compared to the post/comment language.

So i.e. if my browser/OS language is English and the post is flagged German or contains comments that are flagged as German, the Firefox address bar should show the little translation beta icon in the address bar, because Firefox can translate between these two languages.

Bonus points if it doesn't offer German translations if I'm logged in and have set German as one of my languages in the Lemmy settings.

(by the way the dialogue always adds "Undetermined" regardless of if it being selected in the settings or not, not sure if that's intended)

Hope you guys can figure it out. Right now the Firefox button doesn't seem to pop up regardless of which Lemmy instance I visit and which language is set where, but it does appear for a lot of other websites.

And while I'm here, thank you for all you do for us users and the Fediverse/ActivityPub in general. It's much appreciated! :)

Hello, [email protected] was locked by my mods, and continued on [email protected] which is entirely fine given federation, so I guessed I could follow it on the lemmy sort of synced space/community, [email protected], where I can post to the slrpnk community without having an account there. But for some reason recent posts on slrpnk real xmpp community are not showing on [email protected], like if they're not syncing anymore.

Any way to remediate it?

Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me out here. I just did the upgrade, I've updated my ENV variables, and started, and I get:

2024-05-18T19:13:07.047224829Z 2024-05-18T19:13:07.046998Z  INFO migrate_04: pict_rs::repo::migrate: Running checks

I then proceed to get the following item for 110,670 files:

Nothing else indicates, though.

I currently have my instance running on my local network. I now have to expose it to the internet and want to use cloudflared for this. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work.

I am using the default nginx config. Here is my docker-compose.yml https://pastebin.com/6awxsZn8

EDIT: adding network_mode: 'host' to cloudflared fixed it.

Tailing the Docker logs is like watching a torrent of these warnings, and I'm worried about the stress its adding to my fairly meager VM. Any tips on how to debug this? I'm proficient with Rust, so I'm willing and able to jump into the code if it'll help.
