I have once made an alternative frontend for tiktok to bypass the indian tiktok ban. but I abandoned it because it was too much work to keep it working when they frequently make changes to the api and website. I don’t think anyone will be willing to maintain such a mess so there won’t be any alt-frontends

I like it. The content has no substance, but that’s a feature. go there only if you enjoy goofy dances or lipsyncing. If you expect political commentary or educational content you’ll be disappointed.

And your experience will be much better if you follow your IRL friends.

But we must find exactly where that limit is and consider not going over the top.

Just browse through those ‘right wing’ servers. I’d say we’re showing incredible restraint by still federating with one of them.


The paradox of tolerance states that if a society is tolerant without limit, its ability to be tolerant is eventually seized or destroyed by the intolerant

Also, wouldn’t this concept be better implemented as an alternative interface for Lemmur instead of a whole new app?

I think that’s what she is saying essentially taking the data from Lemmy api and displaying it like a chat app


  • communities -> group chat
  • Posts and comments -> threads within group chats

It already exists. but it won’t help with spam since they are all new accounts

It’s in the api, any custom frontend should be able to display it.

They want normal clicks to open in new tabs, it’s a popular feature request.https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ui/issues/282

This also means I can inflate the number of comments by marking deleted as false repeatedly

OK I got some time to properly test this, this happens because you can mark a comment as deleted even if it’s already marked as such. and the db trigger happens every time value of deleted is updated regardless of previous state

features added since the last time i posted * Authentication * Theming and other configs * Navigate Nested comments * Polished UI

I'm developing a tui for lemmy :). It's in a very early stage of development, i'm looking forward to improve my Rust skills by working on this project (this is my first rust project)

Fediverse and parasocial relationships
Fediverse and parasocial relationships - Shouldn't the fediverse discourage patterns that create parasocial relationships? - Wouldn't it be better if the standard was a symmetrical relationship between users instead of the asymmetrical follow model? - Most big social medias thrive on parasocial-relations, is it necessary to emulate that model for success? - Shouldn't we focus on community building and mutual friendship instead of forcing everyone to be a mini-celebrity? - Aren't communities/groups better for discoverability than the public feeds of mastodon, pleroma,etc
