response to the linked github ticket:

instead of limiting the posts, i think the easiest way would be to just adapt the lemmy ranking algorithm https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/about/ranking.html to include the amount of posts per user and per community. So that it is also logratithmic.

this is what i mean with the above post, that the more a user posts, slowly the ranking decreases for each post. Also for the community.

this is a better solution

i think it makes also sense for the ones you subscribe to. for instance, i have usually like 5 posts from lemmygrad in my feed because they have both many posts and many upvotes - which means high liklihood that their post lands in a high position in the feed.

compare that to instances which are for instance very new and get not many posts and not many upvotes, or only not many upvotes. --> i don’t see them much on my timeline

–> so i think applying that on all communities increases diversity overall, in the lemmyverse

disagree. i found this issue many times in instances which whose activity was perfectly fine otherwise, and for instance even when the default filter would be active, this STILL would be an issue since every post is shown as equally active

Proposal to change lemmy algorithm to decrease likelihood of 1 user or 1 community filling out the timeline

Sometimes with new users (especially on instances with not so many users), it happens that 1 user creates many posts in a short time. …


And i’d suggest to ask in IRC for support, there are more people to help.

sounds like not all dependencies for pmbootstrap are installed.

also, notice:

  1. the above reddit link is 1 year old. which is a lot in pinephone development.
  2. you might run outdated firmware which could also increase battery live if updated
  3. the above reddit link says that with postmarketos they got 12 hrs battery life, so it might be that some other programs on your device decrease the battery life massively?

it seems to be that postmarketos does not use deep sleep for the pinephone. See this reddit post:

I switched from PM to Mobian. That increased my battery life from 12 hrs to 24+hrs.

and the answer to that:

The reason for this - which OP might also care about - is, that postmarketOS currently does not make use of the Crust firmware, which would put the phone into deep sleep. So the phone runs on full performance until the battery dies eventually. Like if you would connect your PC to a battery this won’t hold up long.

What Crust does is to shut down all unnecessary devices when the phone is unattended, even the CPU. The downside of it is that it has to be fine-tuned properly to make sure that calls and messages still can be received reliable, which is likely what the postmarketOS devs are still working on. For details I recommend to look at https://github.com/crust-firmware/crust.


So that means, you could figure out how deep sleep works on mobian and port that to postmarketos

this is exactly the one i recommend :) yours is just another way of accessing the community.

as far as i know, yes lemmygrad and lemmy.ml are operated by the same people. And i think this was a deliberate decision to create a seperate instance: the admins knew that such discussions would arise and they knew people would block/criticize tankie-content. So having a generalist instance like lemmy.ml makes it easier for people to like lemmy.

i don’t trust the developers or tankies in general.

it is installed into /usr/share/doc/anarchism where HTML and markdown files are visible.

but a manpage might indeed be useful

and also many people in the tech scene like to explain things if you show motivation and the desire to listen, read manuals and such things.

so good internet-search skills will get you very far in my experience

well, you can learn. many people in the tech scene have never formally learned to program and just tinkered around. trial and error basically.

so this is not a question of your programming skills and instead rather one of motivation and curiosity.

postmarketos is better longterm because they work heavily on upstreaming patches to for instance the linux kernel or other projects. ubuntu touch instead uses many local patches but doesn’t invest that much time into upstreaming.

if you have time i’d suggest to choose postmarketos and try to fix your problems you find. you can learn a lot by it and improve the long term support. because others have done exactly that before you, the support is already very good usually. so you don’t need to learn everything yourself, just need to look what other people had done on other devices to fix similar problems.

it may require a few hours/weekends until you understand things, but it feels good to have that much knowledge to be able to fix your problems.

EDIT: ah, sorry. i thought your device would be in community, not in testing: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/OnePlus_Two_(oneplus-oneplus2) - so i thought you had this device: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/OnePlus_6_(oneplus-enchilada)

so in that case: you probably would need to invest more time but it is still possible to get good support. usually you can also look at the ubuntu touch patches and see if you can work with them, altough for instance ubuntu touch uses usually a very old kernel whereas postmarketos uses a new kernel.

also notice:

let’s assume this article would get viral with many upvotes and many people showing solidarity and such things. male people in india would also see that and because of the attention this topic gets it would create a big discussion in the foss scene in india (it is simplified, stuff usually doesn’t work that simple, but still it forces people to think about it).

so that means: the high number of downvotes decrease the likelyhood the patriarchy in india crumbles. And yes it wouldnt’ be destroyed either way, because it is a slow process to destroy patriarchy - but still the discussion is important.

when you actually want to destroy patriarchy, showing solidarity when people complain about patriarchy is the most basic thing you can do to help.

thanks. :)

Please note that my comments were mostly reactions to @Brattea@lemmy.ml, not to the woman in the blog post.

ah thanks.

They (Brattea, not the blogger) were complaining about downvotes, and that stuff is so non-constructive and childish I had to react. I know now, I fell for it again. I responded to online bait.

Yes. and i reacted to you to show that @Brattea@lemmy.ml, is not alone, to show solidarity. Non-constructive answers (for instance trolling, shitposting, making puns of things, saying people like things.) are also very common comments and my impression is that you don’t care about regular non-constructive comments but only about Brattea’s complaint of the lack of solidarity.

Oh for Jack’s sake! That is absolutely not what anybody you (and Brattea) are arguing with were actually writing! Fallacies are fun I guess. :(

well true, but it is a very common reaction.

As said before, in many places in the world this is all woven into far more complex problems, whereof the solution is probably also far more complex.

that is also true.

They are marginalising folk and are no actual solution to anything.

the actual solution would be to read many books how patriarchy works in modern societies. which i do regularly - altough i am not experiencing sexual harassment/sexism and read about patriarchy because i want to show solidarity and avoid common pitfalls in dealing with sexual harassment and sexism.

if we had a constructive and thoughtful conversation in FOSS about sexism and structrucal patriarchy, i woulnd’t complain, but we don’t have that.

well i agree that india has a reputation being quite patriarchical, but reputation is misleading: also germany has patriarchical structures but has no wide pubilc reputation for that. it is surely different in intensity, but still in germany 1/3 of women experience sexual violence in their live. as structural problems are always different in every country, it doesn’t make much sense to highlight those of india.

i mean, i probably wouldn’t complain if you used a different wording and showed solidirarity with the author, while linking to for instance an queerfeminst blog entry describing how the patriarchical strucutres in india makes the live of queerfeminist (and also men who do are not considered to be manly) worse.

i wouldn’t say much when you would show interest in fixing those issues, for instance also by explaining that you are part of awareness teams of conferences where people can show up when they experience any sort of harassment. i wouldn’t say much when i could trust you having a deep understanding of awareness related work.

what i don’t understand: FOSS has big conferences where people around the world join together. it could happen that a women from US visists a debconf or something in india, and also a women from anywhere visists a conference where male, patriarchic people from india attend. For both people this post would be very interesting and it leaves a bad impression that you downvoted (probably).
