I’m waiting for it to be taken over by marvel fans. (!fedivangelism@lemmy.ml take note lol)

My work seems to block lemmy.ml but not pornhub
I suspect it's that they block all .ml instances. Fb also blocks lemmy.ml but not midwest.social Potentially a good reason to use other instances?

I’ll try that. Have another favorite keepass linux app?

I thought I was the only one with this opinion!

Target schools with discord/matrix
zuckerberg targeted individual schools to initially get fb rolling. Can we do the same? If you're in school, set up a discord for your school. Print out a few posters and put them around your school, whisper to classmates in zoom, tell your friends etc. Bridge the discord to matrix if the plan works. [Bridging is very easy and free.](https://www.t2host.io/discord/) Any other ideas to advertise a discord server in a school?

How did they end up on these platforms?

Because their friends/celebrities are on them. The network effect.

I guess my conclusion is that they need to be sold on the additional freedoms and benefits they get by using it, it being similar to use isn’t enough.

IMO we don’t have to sell them on benefits - it’s not like IG sold them on the benefits aside from network effect.


As someone who used to use cryptocurrency, almost nobody uses cryptocurrency.

Use = buying bread in a grocery store

I could never manage to make a dread account for some reason. The capcha wasn’t working i think?

Calling people normie is cringe OP, if you can’t use those apps go back to reddit.

Lemmy is not ready for wide spread mobile adoption yet
Lemmur doesn't allow lemmy.ml logins. It is also hard to tell if i'm posting in X sub vs Y, because the way it displays cross posts is difficult. I could not figure out how to mention users. I can't log in at all with jerboa. Mobile browser viewer of lemmy is slow compared to big tech. These will reduce normie adoption. In fact it made me turn more towards mastodon. I heard a statistic saying that people are more likely to use mobile over computer.

The text size was bigger until a recent update :(

overflow is advocating on purpose or accidentally for either libertaranism, or minarchy.

You shouldn’t have to - state expenditure should be covered by nationalising land and resources, and taxing wealth rather than work.

Basically using big business to fund public services?

Search function cannot specify which sublemmy to search
I select c/asklemmy and search my term and it returns results for all of lemmy.

Is your pfp CC0? I might want to use it on another site!

Link to the mastodon/lemmy etc in the description

Can you post the unedited results of the survey here? But remove people’s usernames

How do we (fediverse) get partnerships with IG/discord servers/etc?
A lot of youtubers have their own discord servers. I've seen 1 or 2 IGers with discord servers. We could try to get them to bridge to a matrix room? How do we go about this? For IGers, we could also try to say something like, 'put a link to a specific mastodon/pixelfed account that mirrors your content in your bio and i'll manually crosspost material to that pixelfed'. Other ideas? And how do we get them to reply?

What's your opinion on people who use cryptocurrency?
Pretend you meet a random person and they tell you they use cryptocurrency. What's your opinion on that person based off that statement alone?

Anyone use keepassXC?
My keyboard shortcut button (ctrl + /) isn't working. Is this normal? I'm trying to zoom in to increase text size, but cannot figure it out since i can't open shortcuts. Can someone tell me the shortcut for zoom in and out?

Rule 2 suggestion
Not that this is that important, but it could be clarified to say: "Be respectful. Everyone should feel welcome here. Besides bigots." Given how offended people became over the "Lemmy.ml is an antifa instance post", that may be helpful

Would you be willing to pay more taxes for socialism?
I was told growing up that I won't like socialism once I have to start paying taxes. I pay taxes, but would much rather pay way more taxes to have socialism. Including paying for social programs I wouldn't use like welfare, free tuition etc. Once I qualified for work pharmacare that was great! But I remember how much it sucked not having any health insurance. Yeah I bootstrapped it, but I'd hope we would grow up as a species and not have to have so much bootstrapping, since there are better ways at this point.

Give me reasons why I should NOT use a mastodon to twitter crossposter
https://crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/ : “Any toot bigger than 280 characters will be posted with a link to the original toot.” too bad this only happens for over 280 characters! This will help grow the fediverse, assuming enough of my toots are over 280 characters

Tutanota supports ukraine
Dear Privacy Fan, The Russian invasion in Ukraine is an attack on a free, democratic country. We stand with the people in the Ukraine and are donating 25% of revenue from new subscriptions in February and March to humanitarian aid in Ukraine. Spread the word about our initiative and upgrade your account now! As the war in Ukraine relentlessly gathers pace and has already reached large parts of the country, many civilians are trying to get to safety. More than half a million people have already fled to neighboring Poland, Slovakia and Hungary. Many have been on the road for several days, traveled across the country and then had to stand for hours in front of the clogged border, often without food, in the cold. At the border, families need to separate from husbands, fathers and sons as only women, children and old people are allowed to leave the country. The need for humanitarian aid is multiplying and increasing by the hour, says UNICEF. In these dark times, we are thankful that we can support humanitarian aid in Ukraine with your help! Thank you, your Tutanota Team

What automatic crossposters exist?
https://crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/ cross posts from mastodon to twitter or vice versa (i've never used it). Does this one work well? Especially important is that the crossposted content says 'posted on mastodon link-here.com', which would help drive people to the fediverse. What other crossposters exist? Ex lemmy-reddit. Or anything-facebook. https://crossposter.masto.donte.com.br/ i: "Any toot bigger than 280 characters will be posted with a link to the original toot." too bad this only happens for over 280 characters!

Dating on the fediverse: Alovoa - Meet fellow foss fans!
Hey, you! You, reading this post! Are you a foss enthusiastic gay man? Do you have any foss enthusiastic gay men friends? There is a foss tinder clone where you can meet other foss enthusiastic men! Pros: foss enthusiasts are more likely than average to have a stem degree, so gold digging opportunities lads! Cons: if you're into women This post is a meme, but Alovoa and my enthusiasm is real.

Which fediverse platform is it easiest to get irl friends to follow you on?
Tech normie friends who've either never heard of discord or heard of it once. They don't know who pewdiepie is. They use facebook, instagram, snapchat or tiktok. I think marketing the fediverse to druggie friends might be easier since a lot of those friends use signal. I think if i posted enough banger content, I might be able to get like 1 friend to jump ship.
