Is it worth it? I think there are many solutions for federated blogging.

I thinks it’s better to focus on lemmy itself as a reddit alternative as it’s the only one (or almost) in the scene.

How on Earth? Is their business model sustainable?

Okay, Mozilla financially depends on Google. Yes, that’s pretty sad. But I think it’s too soon to quit on them. They’re trying to make privacy ecosystem and that might help them become independent.

As for now, even though Mozilla is financed by Google, did the dependence really influenced Mozilla’s decisions?

YSK: there is a setting to hide votes in Lemmy
I recently discovered that I can hide votes for all posts and comments (there is a setting). And this makes life a bit easier, I think. My judgement comes more from content itself, not from votes.

I fucking hate this project. I know that this project gives no new data. But this project makes it a lot easier for most folks to harm Elon. That’s how the scale works. If we increase cigarette prices of course many people will still smoke, but the number will decrease.

It’s a privacy-hate project. You may hate Elon all you want but he has the right to private life as all of us do.

But is it sustainable… I mean can’t google just break it easily?

Do you receive donations? If no, consider it. It will be simpler to buy what’s needed (vps, for example) yourselves.

This would be cool but I don’t think it’s a priority. There are much more needed features not implemented yet.

people don’t want to have to make hundreds of accounts on hundreds of different servers, which is why most people don’t self-host or collaborate that way

Yeah, totally understandable.

Maybe they mistreated you by deleting your project, idk. If that’s the case, it’s not good, but Codeberg is still better than Github freedom-wise.

Why did they remove it? Just because it’s torrent?

Btw what is this project? Can you share a link?

Maybe self-hosted Gitlab then? I don’t know if it has all features you need though.

There is no mastodon hegemony and won’t be in near future. The hegemony is Twitter, Facebook etc. While they are dominant other fediverse projects don’t compete with each other, they compete with centralized social sites.

Let’s hope the growth continues.

Chinese state media? Wikipedia articles on China?

I agree. There is Codeberg which looks like a good option for migrating. It’s not so feature-rich yet but basic functions are there.

I think doing something more decentralized than twitter is better than doing nothing at all.

I often hear this argument: you should’ve done “this” instead of “that”. I think it’s misleading. Doing “this” is already good. Doing “that” may be good too. Why not do “this” and “that”, not only one of them. Resources are not limited: there can be a lot more developers making new products.

You may set up a random redirect :) For example reddit.com redirects to lemmy.ml every time with probability 1/3. Or redirect with a switch. The last option is easy to set up, there are extensions for this.

I let myself be sad. I think about things which made me sad, listen to sad music, read sad stories etc. Sometimes it makes me cry. Sadness goes away pretty fast. I believe that’s because I don’t push myself.

It’s crucial to understand that sadness is a normal feeling and one should accept it. Unless you are said every day no matter what.

I miss such functionality from reddit too. We should implement it in Lemmy.

I think simplification in this case is okay. Such simplifications help Mastodon gain new users. You don’t expect people to take time to understand all this stuff. And let’s not pretend that this is easy-peasy for non-technical person.

Man… You wrote this here, for lemmy comment? That’s a lot of work…

Those highly specialised communities

You shouldn’t tell people they’re dumb in any community, personal attacks are rarely welcome

There are some partial solutions to this. For example this extension blocks specified sites from appearing in google search: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublacklist/

Did somebody manage to run this in Librewolf? I mean extension.

Doing it manually is definitely burdensome, better use some software. Idk which software to use really, but speech recognition is a common problem, I’m sure you will find something. You need software to run locally in order to transcribe a long video for free, there are such solutions as well.

I doubt that online transcribers will transcribe long videos without pay. AFAIK speech recognition is computationally heavy.
