I wonder how compatible groups will be with other applications.

… It comes after a period of decline for McLaren, which has seen the team finish third in 2020, fourth in 2021 and fifth in 2022. After two races in 2023, they have yet to score a point. No surprised pikachu face.

While I only use browsers for enagement with all the fediverse applications I’ve used (5+) I wouldnt consider it the only true client.

It’s VW dieselgate all over again.

Yeah. Looking like season domination. Hamilton must be pissed, gg Aston Martin.

In Alpha. Great to see some niche ancillary services being developed with the potential to become useful for other communities, or a precursor to others. Hopefully will expand beyond the Mastodon = Fediverse approach over time.

This is brilliant, has been my go to a couple of times already. I have renamed my classic albums community to use the word music in the name to help discovery :D

Yes although not fussed on misskey inspired customisations. Active development and performance improvements sound good but perhaps just a short dev cycle to push their prioritised improvements.

Self run pleroma. Looking to test friendica but the host didn’t have the right setup. Mastodon social account for testing. Account on bookwyrn, account on pixelfed.social.

Aah ok. That’s the interesting thing about blocks, I can’t see yogthos post from sopuli (hence the double up) and it’s not something set on my account.

It would be good to get some indication of what convos you could be missing out on.

Happy with full timeline, I’ve followed people for a reason. Not interested in others making decisions for me cough fb. What I would like is a way to rank prioritise people and increase decrease feed volume based on priority that I choose. Also set / mute by topic.

The idea of a trending digest, posted elsewhere is also a good one. Opt in approaches.

Awesome - thanks for all the feedback. Looks like I have a bit of testing ahead of me.

Best Activitypub software to hang out with friends?
Mastodon/Pleroma looks to be for broadcast, what would be the best options for sharing content with friends/groups - I'm assuming without knowing better Diaspora or Frendica?

Excellent will have to test it out at some point when implemented (personally wasnt a fan of the old k9 ui)

Bluesky surely has to be the front runner for the better twitter even if it is only an underlying protocol. I don’t think Mastodon will ever be the front runner in that the devs don’t seem to want to imitate the hooks that allowed twitter to become so big in the first place (not a bad thing)

Mastodon feels like an interim step to something else. That you feel like something newer could develop, but you could still connect with current activitypubapps - is refreshing.

Up until google builds something to suck the life out of it but they might be busy with ai-infested search indexing.

I always get awaiting approval from pleroma ( Mastodon works like a charm on evrything other than sopuli) not sure if I’ve missed something.

The Akkoma dev gave an indication hopefully it works out.

As many of you will be aware, back in 01/2022, there was something of a schism in the smallish group of Pleroma developers with no single cause in my eyes - it was the culmination of years of mounting tensions between two competing interest groups.

Great to see some detailed how-tos for something other than mastodon. Though in this case theyre using Rebased as the backend which is a fork of Pleroma.

My assumption is people won’t engage with a large dump of data. So when I posted about a site with good content I posted one link to the site and then posted one article as a taster and I thought that was a good approach.

Aah you’re going to make me test out a frendica account now :D I’ve only seen how it works from mastodon, which is limited but usable…

Have never got it working from my pleroma instance, but that just may be my lack of sysadmin skills.

Damn. Though it wasn’t a great season for anyone involved in ferrari, I thought they’d be able to build on the momentum of the new car new regs.

Via formula1.com

Though he knew Ferrari were looking and speaking to candidates to replace him – though it is understood they never said this to him explicitly – he felt he would be given the chance to build on the progress of 2022 in 2023 and if he didn’t deliver the championship, maybe it would be the end of the road.

Not to be.

Something like that could be useful for organisation with a large amount of data. Sidebar would be useful. Any way to group communities to drive discovery.

A cars specific instance would be my go to option in this scenario though.

IMO There are enough english-generalist instances There could probably be some more country specific/language specific ones.

I posted on mastodon that anyone thinking about making a mastodon server for a niche community should instead look at lemmy e.g. drumming, etsy, music etc. It’s screamingly obvious to me that it would be a better approach to host a community, but requires more advocates promoting things over there.

Sidenote instance admins need to manage their instances and look to curate communities that give it an identity of its own.

Highly possible given the larger userbase.

I wouldn’t know how many entrenched tumblr users would want to go outside the local loop. Activitypub connects could entice mastodon users the other way though if they preferred the UI…

I can imagine Automattic making tumblr <> fedi integration a paid service. Similar to how wordpress.com provides free hosting with optional paid services.

My current interest in any of the post twitter startups is - does it support activitypub (or any other interop) so yeah happy about this.

Sounds like a good fit since additional services is kind of vivalidis point of difference.

Always enjoy these insightful articles, I’m not sure how the good outweighs the bad.

Roundcube - very basic but does the trick. I dont manage the install.

Yeah could have clarified current using webmail rather than a desktop app.

Best run in the conditions and a lucky red flag got him the spot.

No self host, no decentralisation, no dice.

FYI I subscribed to @cats@midwest and it boosted the post to the mastodon timeline. (Mastodon.social test account)

Haven't listened yet but interested to hear him talk about his time in the sport.

Might not be a good fit. Android support is brilliant though I haven’t used it with banking apps. Not sure I would. For other apps that complained about play services I’d just installed micro g - https://sopuli.xyz/post/255390 when my phone dropped from a great height, now on stuck on android pending a 10 IV release and disliking google sticking their fingers into everything…

The Verge removed (some) pro pixelfed comments and I don’t know why
As a fan of pixelfed I occasionally checkout to see if it is causing any buzz on comments, generally around instagram-is-doing-something-bad posts. The verge posted [this article](https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/26/23279815/instagram-feed-kardashians-criticism-fuck-it-im-out) and there were some pro pixelfed comments that have been removed. ![comment1 - the post under supermassive no longer exists ](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/bd5fbc2e-d61e-4a70-9bd5-3c3213c83b64.jpeg) ![comment2](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/13d4fb83-1a99-45e6-b76f-822f55b10ba9.jpeg) There is still one comment, which is a simple link to the .org. But I don't see why the comments were removed unless they were auto flagged as bot-spam perhaps. Yet other comments pimping and linking to other options remain. ![Links to other](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/556fb9fa-56b9-4693-9b4e-800df5132c75.jpeg) Makes me a bit grumpy, with all the work Dansup has been putting in.

At least the Ferrari didn’t blow up or break down… Would be said if that was the last event held there, the track is a good mix of sweeping corners and fast straights.

If there was a race to watch as a first timer this might have been it. Pretty much covered the range of tactics and what could happen in an F1 race.

Happy for the guy to be able get a great result after all the flak.

Edit title - I didnt really think verstappen braved anything more that the other drivers. In form best car hes ahead by a mile. ALONSO! and Haas woo! I havent watched a canadian GP before but looking forward to the midfield scrap. Hopefully Norris/Russell can charge up the field as they seem to be good for the overtakes. Vettel Sadface.

From the initial performance Looking like business as usual - Leclerc taking pole but Verstappen blasting past on the straights. Perez must like his chances but who knows how may redflags / escape road exits will be taken in the race...

Danny Ric and Nicholas Latifi are just making up the numbers at the moment -

After last years disappointment I hope he can take the race this year. Blistering pace by the looks. If there is one race I can skip in the season it’s this one. I don’t know why F1 is still here given the car size / track limitations.

Barcelona Quali - Haas and Mercedes with two in Q3!
Great day for them, not so good for the green red bull :/

Data permanence
Excluding existing archiving sites, do you have an expectation or think that data stored on lemmy should be permanent? E.g last 20+ years. Would it matter if old inactive content was culled? If you had the ability to export data if a sever was due to go down, what would you actually do with it.

One year later Checo gets pole
Pity he lucked out with the VSC.
