Is there an app that includes most of the popular corners of the 'Fediverse'?
I'm assuming, out of all the Activity-Pub connected 'Fediverse', there are a handful of instances that get the most activity. That being assumed, is there an app (mobile and otherwise) that, functionally, includes most of these instances? For example, is there an app that can seamlessly handle Mastodon, Lemmy, Friendica, Hubzilla, Peertube, etc?

I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life. That would be a waste of time and effort. I am, simply, providing suggestions.

Based on what I’m reading here I would suggest seeing either a psychologist or a psychiatrist. It’s quite possible that you could discover a way to deal with your problems without using prescription drugs.

I’m not sure where the general distrust is coming from in the medical field. My wife is a registered nurse and she cares about people. I studied health at the university level because I care about people. So many people dedicate their entire lives in order to help others and, yet some will turn to unfounded and ridiculous claims from snake oil con men and the general ignorant public?

Speaking with a doctor (or several in order to get several opinions) is the safest route. Please, do NOT take the advice of the users in this thread about health/wellness. My wife is a registered nurse and I have studied health at a university.

You mentioned:

…burnout and bad thoughts.

This is an indicator that there is an underlying problem going on here that would be better addressed by professional counselors and/or doctors.

Many people have dedicated their entire lives in order to help people like you. Please, reach out to them.

Hello there! I am one of the administrators at Beehaw. If I’m reading and understanding your comment correctly, then this could solve our most pressing problem of running out of server disk space.

Is there a time-frame when you expect to have pict-rs 0.4 available?

I’m eagerly anticipating this feature. Fantastic work!

Fediverse and ActivityPub. What are all the platforms that interconnect with each other?
My understanding is that Mastodon, Pleroma and Lemmy can connect with each other using ActivityPub. Are there other platforms that share this same interconnection?

I can imagine how this would be useful in several scenarios. I’d like to see this happen as well.

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!

[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.

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.

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?
