+1 keep tooting like crazy… we already post enough :)


Indeed, I was less interested in the historical event and, so I generalized the concept.

Right now, not only is there somewhat of a culture clash, but a vanguard of CEO’s, CTO’s and high profile Silicon Value (laid-off?) workers streaming in.

Birdsite has a couple’a hundred million users. But the influx is potentially much, much bigger and continues going, as - due to all media attention worldwide - Mastodon and by extension the Fediverse becomes a household name.

I am not only fretting about an Eternal September to take place, but increasingly more expecting it to happen. And with the inevitable corporate takeover following in its strides.

[Eternal September](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_September) is when influx from some other (often shittier and collapsing) platform overwhelms the unique culture that existed before, and in time fully replaces it. Destroying what existed before. 🧠 💭 **Figure out strategies & actions in comments below .. participate!** For example, I introduced 2 hashtags for awareness: - **#AvoidEternalSeptember** Raise attention to the culture clash. - **#DonateToFediInstances** Help admins and moderators withstand the influx and give them your support. We want to be gentle, welcoming to newcomers. Show them around. But also keep having the nice chattering and culture we had before, and maybe give those some extra boosts to exemplify and spread the vibes. Here's [a poll](https://social.coop/@smallcircles/109306786291084911) to make newcomers aware that taking Twitter culture with you on the Fediverse is just weird. ### Fedizens...

Nice, like that. This is something to be eventually addressed by The Forgers Guild. You might post in the Ideas category of Discuss Social Coding (part of the Guild).


The image shows a 'onebox' or OpenGraph link preview generated when dropping this link https://lemmy.ml/post/569631 into a Discourse forum post. It would be very nice if the preview included the name of the Community to which this was posted, i.e. [!fediversefutures@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/fediversefutures)

Ha, yes. Comes quite close to Software Guilds idea for Social Coding Movement, and - related - Ecosystem Alliances. They could be skills-oriented. The first guild we are eyeing is called The Forgers Guild focussing on “forging free software” on the Fediverse, i.e. a Forge Federation ecosystem alliance. Maybe you knew about it already, right? 😉

It is like retweeting… unlike on Twitter you can’t add your own comments to the boost.

On twitter if you Like a tweet, then the algorithms pick it up and it may go ‘viral’. This doesn’t exist on the Fediverse. A Favorite / Like is just a heads-up to the author, who sees it as a notification. So boosting is what’s needed to spread posts to other people’s timelines.


I feel your worries are justified. ActivityPub ecosystem isn’t really maturing, it is languishing. There are still a whole bunch of good developments, but in our grassroots chaotic movement it is very hard for them to find broader adoption. Meanwhile complexity in our ecosystem grows and there’s Protocol Decay as developers extend on-the-fly, in their codebase, and these are not shared or standardized.

Competing alternative technologies have analysed our weaknesses. They do not align with our values and principles for the most part, but they have ability to act. There’s money behind them and huge rolodexes of people / companies with clout. On the Fediverse I witness a casual underestimation of what these initiatives may lead to, and an attitude of “we have already arrived”. There’s a good article that mentions the threat we face which I quoted in Are we ready for the threats to the Fediverse and decentralization movement? long ago.



That is not possible. It is more that Lemmy allows you to expose your community and posts in it to the entirety of the (microblogging) Fediverse. While e.g. from Mastodon you can comment on posts created in Lemmy, you can create posts in a community. For that a Lemmy account is required. But the post and the comments are seen on timelines for interactions and you can also boost them, for instance.


Collaborative Writing on the Fediverse, with an app that has Manuskript-like plot authoring features.


Flockingbird has been working on Hunter2, a bot that scours the fediverse for job postings. They then become available on Flockingbird Search portal.


Collaborative writing

I’d like to see a federated app that allows people to collectively design and author intricate plots, with features like in Manuskript or similar plot authoring tools.




Yes agreed. This is by far the most direly needed across the fediverse. The Nomad protocol implemented in Streams offers nomadic identity. There’s various discussions on SocialHub on it like this one but until now no real further implementation efforts, AFAIK. There’s movement on the W3C DID Recommendation (where there are many methods, a lot of those blockchain-based but others not blockchain dependent such as did:ORB).



You can react or like on the open issue for fedi support… https://github.com/Alovoa/alovoa/issues/13


The Create post hung too. And no errors were logged to the browser console window.


[Solved] All 'Save' actions remain hanging
Since a little while all 'Save' actions hang on the spinner that keeps running. This while the save already happened. To see that I need to refresh the page. I had this with Create comment, Create cross-post, and soon I'll know if it happens with Create post too. Note that the refresh caused the cross-post not to be marked as such, and it looks like I duplicated a topic independently now.. [this post](https://lemmy.ml/post/539000) should be a cross-post of [this one](https://lemmy.ml/post/538538). Am using Firefox 105.0.3 on Ubuntu 22.04

SocialHub discourse forum is looking into SemApps to bridge to the Fediverse. This is currently stalling again, and I think can use any helping hands.


Nice. I posted about Dating on the Fediverse: Alovoa - Meet new, exciting people! on Lemmy, and also in a toot. There is an interest. Also see the cross-post to !fediverse@lemmy.ml where they talk about it (which somehow isn’t marked as cross-post… I have weird issues in the UI right now).

Federated, free, and/or open source software will not be chosen over proprietary software unless they overcome this hurdle.

They will only innovate when there is enough effort put towards them.
