@OptimusPrime single identity across several fedi services

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).

THIS! The thing that is the most immediate and frustrating thing about getting into Fedi. I started out making whole new accounts (with the same user name) every time I clicked a link to a Mastodon instance. Both because I wanted to make sure I had the name I wanted, and because I didn’t understand that I needed to more manually add users to my follow lists (and in some cases it seems some instances need you to be part of their instance). I also had made accounts for some of the other Fedi social media sites here and there at some point. Just to go back and see that the site/instance isn’t there anymore. So at the very least it would be nice to see both easier ways (at least more obvious ones) to transfer accounts with all the stuff posted/favorited/etc to new instances. And maybe a way to kind of do cold storage backups of accounts that can be saved by the user. Kind of similar (but not the same) to how you can make a local wallet of crypto that all you need to do to use it is to load the recovery words into a warm wallet. That way I can basically see that a site went down, and not have lost as much.

That and figuring out some kind of search standards that can be enabled for finding other Fedi things and just seeing stuff. Something that makes it easier to at least search for media content like getting results for all PeerTube instances in one place. But can be left off or set levels by the instances that don’t want to participate. With so many people getting frustrated at YouTube and the ever increasing ad counts. Making at least the finding of stuff easier for normies (and getting apps on devices like Roku) would help get more creators to at least duplicate their channels this way. The time for getting serious alts out there is now IMO. People put up with YouTube due to ease of use and because they don’t see real options that aren’t outright grifts or otherwise feels super sus.

  1. discourse. they tried to get funding for developing federation to no avail. i already have 10 discourse accounts… if there was federation one account would be enough.
  2. pinterest alternative
  3. pocket alternative

Use OAuth for Discourse, it’s like baby federation

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.

Something new. Why just rebuild the big players.

Okay enough joking, it is a Tik-Tok alternative. -.-

At least you have Alovoa!

Classified advertising aka ebay / craigslist

The problem with that would be probably spam. Low effort advertisement is already bad enough on such platforms and it would be even worse on a federated network with volunteer staff only.

idk. maybe there is a technical solution for spam? i’ve been annoyed about the amount of spam comments on peertube. maybe there is a solution that’d work for several federated platforms.

so much this

epicyon has something like that for small scale skills and items sale and rental.

thanks. will have a look at this.

Dating one.

There is Alovoa but federation is not implemented yet.

There was another one called Amore or similar but I am unsure if it is continued or was abandoned. Alovoa has more probabilities to get there.

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

I am one of the people who reacted a while after the issue was opened.

Stack Overflow. It is such an obvious one that we are missing, different communities need q&a forum type of thing adding federation to it would be pretty nice.

I think https://heapoverflow.ml/ was trying to do this!

I think heapoverflow.ml already fits that nicely. It would need it’s own repo to make the tags and it would be perfect.

@OptimusPrime I wish there was software to assign tasks in a staff. Kind of like a Trello, but maybe I’m asking too much.

@russandro @OptimusPrime To tell the truth, there is already a very interesting project, called Bonfire ( => @bonfire <=). It is a platform that:
- it can be a social network such as mastodon or friendica
- can handle posts with a title (and therefore can also publish threads on lemmy)
- can manage purchase and exchange functions in a marketplace
- can manage tasks within user circles

(I talked about it here: poliverso.org/objects/0477a01e… )

For information, you can ask @bernini

bonfirenetworks.org/

@notizie @bonfire @bernini @OptimusPrime I have seen, but there is only one playground instance

@russandro The platform has not yet been released in a fully stable version, but it is very promising

Ciao @russandro
L istanza playground é fatta a posta per testare il software, dare feedback e contribuire a “costruirlo assieme”, finché nn lo riterremo sufficientemente stabile da promuoverne l utilizzo 🙃
@notizie @bonfire @OptimusPrime

Discussion groups for meaningful conversations, like Usenet/NNTP was.

Isn’t Lemmy filling that void?

I think they’re thinking of more of a forum style interface, as Usenet was the forerunner for bulletin board styles.

@federico3@lemmy.ml could check out https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmyBB and https://lemmybb.lemmy.ml/?

Urgh. No, I was thinking of UIs that are information-dense and allow quickly scanning across long threads and thousands of messages, e.g. https://usenet-abc.de/wiki/uploads/Team/Sylpheed2.7.1_big.jpg

You could write your own Lemmy frontend with that design.

A Thunderbird-plugin…

Oh, that would be cool!!n

For that you need different people and communities, not different tools

No, the tools are crucial in presenting content in the right way to create the community.

@OptimusPrime I’m thinking of a non-profit, federated, self-hosted dating site.

I’m imagining each change to a user profile is an AP post. Like adding a picture, editing your profile text. Other users can boost your profile. It would be very much like Mastodon with one major difference being that you could create a swipable tinder-like frontend for it to swipe through all the profiles.

@stemid @OptimusPrime

  1. There are way too many dating sites now
  2. Doing it on Fedi will remove any sort of anonymity
  3. It will be hard to get users
  4. Fedi people are not good quality for dating

Libre and non invasive is really needed. Anonymity can be preserved using matrix E2EE for match communications on antother federated network out of the control of the dating node.

but https://alovoa.com/ already exists

I’m not sure that’s decentralized or federated

it looks like it isn’t, which makes sense because it seems like the federated model is rather at odds with the sort of privacy properties people expect dating sites to (at least pretend to) offer

We need something like a fediverse version of LinkedIn

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

@satur You are right too! 🤣

swayne@fosstodon.org is the project youre looking for!

I’d really like an alternative to AniList / MAL

I think BookWyrm can be used as AniList analog. Just upload anime instead of books.

@timurka @Fisch I believe bookwyrm has enormous potential: it could be used to restaurant reviews like with Trip Advisor or to share fossil collections. Unfortunately it is not free software and its license is nothing short of delusional (to say, a soldier could not even use it …)

raw.githubusercontent.com/book…

@notizie @Fisch @timurka it’s a nice idea to share photos of your fossil collections on the fediverse. Why not also that of the mineral collections? 😀

What’s the advantage of federating a site like that? Without federation there is kitsu.io.

Now that I think about it, if I can backup my data, I wouldn’t lose much by switching instances (unlike with social media). What could be an issue tho, is global ratings but maybe that would actually be fine. What would definitely be an issue is if you follow people on there, since not all of them might switch to the instance you’re on and you’d have the same issue you have if you want to switch away from the big social media sites.

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
