Have there been any reports concerning troublesome bot accounts on Lemmy instances?
This is a fairly concerning problem with Reddit, for example. Are there similar concerns here?

I looked more closely at the lemmy-ansible code and now our docker-compose.yml is functioning properly. Thanks for the heads up!

Here’s the part that I’ve added to the docker-compose.yml:

Here’s the error:

I tried changing the docker-compose.yml file and it didn’t work. It just threw some vague error.

I’ve already done this by running the following command:

truncate -s 0 /var/lib/docker/containers//-json.log

Would you mind sharing your code and where, precisely, to place it?

Found the largest file on our server and have no clue what it is and why it is so fucking huge!

It’s $6 per month for the 25GB and it would increase to $12 per month if we expanded to 50GB. We just don’t understand why our disk usage would increase so dramatically over only 14 days.

[RESOLVED] Our Beehaw instance is experiencing a problem that we can't identify
Over just 14 days our physical disk usage has increased from 52% to 59%. That's approximately 1.75 GB of disk space being gobbled up for unknown reasons. At that rate, we'd be out of physical server space in 2 -3 months. Of course, one solution would be to double our server disk size which would double our monthly operating cost. The 'pictrs' folder named '001' is 132MB and the one named '002' is 2.2GB. At first glance this doesn't look like it's an image problem. So, we are stumped and don't know what to do.

Godot is great for game development AFAIK. However, my son wants to use the software for more than just gaming. It’s something that we’d consider and thank you for responding.

EDIT: My son just told me that he would use said software primarily for gaming. So, you may have just given us the solution with the Godot recommendation. Thanks again!

Questions regarding Unity, Windows and gaming
My two sons will be getting a Windows gaming PC for their upcoming Christmas gift. However, one of my sons has expressed their desire to use [Unity](https://unity.com/). I've been looking at this [MSI Cubi](https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16883152977) for their gaming desires. However, when I looked at the [free/personal download specs for Unity](https://unity.com/download), I noticed that Windows 11 is not supported. Maybe I'm going about all of this the wrong way? I just want a Windows machine that would handle most of the popular games out there that would support the use of Unity. Please, help us solve this problem.

You can set firefox to automatically open all links in a new tab if it’s that important.

I believe you are referring to the following setting in Firefox preferences:

Open links in tabs instead of new windows

I have this checked and it doesn’t work (i.e. doesn’t open links in new tabs).

That’s correct. These apps need work.

And that number keeps going up.

Any server security suggestions for a noob?
I, recently, started running a Lemmy [instance](https://beehaw.org/). I am, also, new to Linux servers. At the advisement of some tech acquaintances, I've installed [UnnattendedUpgrades](https://wiki.debian.org/UnattendedUpgrades) and [Fail2ban](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fail2ban). What would you recommend?

What is happening with the Lemmy mobile apps?
It's my, general, understanding that **most** people connect to the Internet through mobile apps. If this is the case, then why have apps such as [Remmel](https://github.com/uuttff8/Remmel), [Lemmur](https://github.com/LemmurOrg/lemmur) and [jerboa](https://github.com/dessalines/jerboa) taken a back seat? IMHO, it would be a mistake to market Lemmy without these mobile apps functioning properly. I have forked the three aforementioned mobile apps [here](https://github.com/beehaw-org) and will try to 'drum up' support from developers wherever I can find them. Please, if you don't feel comfortable talking to me about this here, then send me a private message. Thank you.

Please, help me understand the setting of enabling/disabling down votes
![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/a7c4d7dd-fa5d-4d8f-9954-f9ef681fa3eb.jpeg) Our instance has unchecked 'Enable Downvotes' which we believed would prevent downvoting. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/3fa4d30a-353a-4e46-994f-2b223e7366f0.jpeg) As you can see, this is not the case. Is this setting federated? If not, why?

[RESOLVED] beehaw.org and lemmy.ml seem to be mirroring 504 errors over the past week
When I say 'seem to be' I mean 95% of the time when I check beehaw.org for the 504, I then check lemmy.ml and it is 504 as well. Other users of beehaw.org are reporting the same behavior as well. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/37aa08e1-979a-4f3c-9a27-fe8cb5ce6337.jpeg) ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/baad7592-5036-42d7-be5b-7afba8d1b192.jpeg)

Besides finances how can people support Lemmy?
We just launched our instance at https://beehaw.org not too long ago. However, a good number of people have been asking questions like this for the past several days on our Discord server. P.S. - I will have a big surprise (hopefully...if all goes well) for the Lemmy community in March.

I have a, fairly, new instance up with several people examining the moderation tools. Someone noticed that the 'remove' option at both the post level and the comment level could be improved upon and I agree with them. Our conclusion is that these would be more user-friendly/intuitive if they were 'remove post' and 'remove comment' respectively.

How do I upgrade to latest Lemmy UI?
Using Docker, I've upgraded Lemmy from 0.13.0 to 0.14.1. How do I upgrade to the latest Lemmy UI?

Bad certificate warning
My site certificate **only** supports non-www addresses. So, when we try to access an image uploaded to the site we are getting a bad certificate warning because there is a 'www' in the address. Is there a solution for this?
