There is a docker installation for linux but it’s kind of clunky, if you or anybody is interested the dev mentioned wanting help packaging it.

Is there a good open source software for running surveys with a free online host?
It should have the option of answering yes/no questions (I am considering running a survey checking if a community knows if a certain feature exists).

There is work on showing the number of unread comments.

hubzilla is more “facebook like”, that is something like a blog where a user posts to a feed he owns, unlike in lemmy where you post to a community.

One nice thing about it is that you can post to specific “subjects”, so if i am interested say in investing and in FOSS, you person can subscribe to read just what i write about FOSS, and another can subscribe to just what i write about investing.

But iirc the UX for this is kinda bad, it’s not surprising it appears like it’s shrinking while other projects like misskey and friendica seem to be growing.

The dating site?

I would try the subreddit or the bug tracker (generally confusing behavior should not happen IMO).

I can click on a comment to mark it as read and then just display read comments (and set this as the default, by default it marks as read just comments you “looked at” which does not seem to work as well).

I can also tag a certain user, so stuff like “lemmy developer” will appear next to his name.

I also shows the sum of upvotes and downvotes i made to a guy, so if he has “-4” that means his judgement is probably not very good and i should avoid engaging in conversation with him, if it’s high it might be especially “useful” to start talking to him.

Another advantage of reddit (at least old reddit) that given the front page has a few default subscriptions i can remove some i am not interested in, on Lemmy “all” stream it looks like basically just communism propaganda/advocacy (So you are not going to start looking for regular stuff there, which makes people post less regular stuff and the circle continues), having the ability on the client side to block a specific instance or community could be useful (not to mention some people know people who lived on communist countries and heard some pretty bad stories, even if you think it was not “true communism” or something like that it can still give a pretty bad impression). There is the “remove” button but it is not clear what it does (It should have a pop up when hovering over him).

I like some parts of it (showing how many upvotes and downvotes you got beside just a sum is good).

But it’s mostly less good version reddit (It does not have it’s ecosystem, Like the excellent RES that makes it possible to incrementally read a post , no multireddits , and of course no big communities with good content like on reddit) .

I feel like improving the platform is the way to make it a more worthwhile use of most people time (As it should among other things will bring more people).

People can believe what they want to believe, but there has to be a line somewhere no?

what next? rape and murder a CEO ? (a lemmy community with tips and tricks)

The report feature does not work for me, If anybody wants to try they can copy paste what i wrote:

To me this crosses a line, breaking the law because your pet economic theory says it’s ok, It might attract a bad crowd and maybe even cause legal problems.

I also had problems with it, but after an upgrade it works pretty well.

You gave this link.

As you can see in the website i linked to, lemmy.ml does not have 16k active users.

User count is not very meaningful, an active user count is better, this website does that.

I am not sure that what perceived improvement in quality of content on lemmy is due to the platform, and not due to it’s “newness” (Smarter people might tend to try new platforms), I like lemmy showing upvotes and downvotes and not just the sum, but otherwise it’s just basically reddit accept you don’t seem to encounter really knowledgeable users (even for open source, i didn’t see any devs here but you see plenty on reddit), and you can’t use RES .

Some services (like friendica) can be used with yunohost which is supposed to make self hosting easier, maybe we can try to encourage the community to add lemmy to it (and link to it on the lemmy homepage).
