Yes although not fussed on misskey inspired customisations. Active development and performance improvements sound good but perhaps just a short dev cycle to push their prioritised improvements.


Self run pleroma. Looking to test friendica but the host didn’t have the right setup. Mastodon social account for testing. Account on bookwyrn, account on pixelfed.social.


Aah ok. That’s the interesting thing about blocks, I can’t see yogthos post from sopuli (hence the double up) and it’s not something set on my account.

It would be good to get some indication of what convos you could be missing out on.



Happy with full timeline, I’ve followed people for a reason. Not interested in others making decisions for me cough fb. What I would like is a way to rank prioritise people and increase decrease feed volume based on priority that I choose. Also set / mute by topic.

The idea of a trending digest, posted elsewhere is also a good one. Opt in approaches.


Awesome - thanks for all the feedback. Looks like I have a bit of testing ahead of me.


Best Activitypub software to hang out with friends?
Mastodon/Pleroma looks to be for broadcast, what would be the best options for sharing content with friends/groups - I'm assuming without knowing better Diaspora or Frendica?

Excellent will have to test it out at some point when implemented (personally wasnt a fan of the old k9 ui)


Bluesky surely has to be the front runner for the better twitter even if it is only an underlying protocol. I don’t think Mastodon will ever be the front runner in that the devs don’t seem to want to imitate the hooks that allowed twitter to become so big in the first place (not a bad thing)


Mastodon feels like an interim step to something else. That you feel like something newer could develop, but you could still connect with current activitypubapps - is refreshing.

Up until google builds something to suck the life out of it but they might be busy with ai-infested search indexing.


I always get awaiting approval from pleroma ( Mastodon works like a charm on evrything other than sopuli) not sure if I’ve missed something.


The Akkoma dev gave an indication hopefully it works out.

As many of you will be aware, back in 01/2022, there was something of a schism in the smallish group of Pleroma developers with no single cause in my eyes - it was the culmination of years of mounting tensions between two competing interest groups.


Great to see some detailed how-tos for something other than mastodon. Though in this case theyre using Rebased as the backend which is a fork of Pleroma.


My assumption is people won’t engage with a large dump of data. So when I posted about a site with good content I posted one link to the site and then posted one article as a taster and I thought that was a good approach.


Aah you’re going to make me test out a frendica account now :D I’ve only seen how it works from mastodon, which is limited but usable…

Have never got it working from my pleroma instance, but that just may be my lack of sysadmin skills.


Something like that could be useful for organisation with a large amount of data. Sidebar would be useful. Any way to group communities to drive discovery.

A cars specific instance would be my go to option in this scenario though.


IMO There are enough english-generalist instances There could probably be some more country specific/language specific ones.

I posted on mastodon that anyone thinking about making a mastodon server for a niche community should instead look at lemmy e.g. drumming, etsy, music etc. It’s screamingly obvious to me that it would be a better approach to host a community, but requires more advocates promoting things over there.

Sidenote instance admins need to manage their instances and look to curate communities that give it an identity of its own.


Highly possible given the larger userbase.

I wouldn’t know how many entrenched tumblr users would want to go outside the local loop. Activitypub connects could entice mastodon users the other way though if they preferred the UI…



I can imagine Automattic making tumblr <> fedi integration a paid service. Similar to how wordpress.com provides free hosting with optional paid services.


The Verge removed (some) pro pixelfed comments and I don't know why
As a fan of pixelfed I occasionally checkout to see if it is causing any buzz on comments, generally around instagram-is-doing-something-bad posts. The verge posted [this article](https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/26/23279815/instagram-feed-kardashians-criticism-fuck-it-im-out) and there were some pro pixelfed comments that have been removed. ![comment1 - the post under supermassive no longer exists ](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/bd5fbc2e-d61e-4a70-9bd5-3c3213c83b64.jpeg) ![comment2](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/13d4fb83-1a99-45e6-b76f-822f55b10ba9.jpeg) There is still one comment, which is a simple link to the .org. But I don't see why the comments were removed unless they were auto flagged as bot-spam perhaps. Yet other comments pimping and linking to other options remain. ![Links to other](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/556fb9fa-56b9-4693-9b4e-800df5132c75.jpeg) Makes me a bit grumpy, with all the work Dansup has been putting in.

Data permanence
Excluding existing archiving sites, do you have an expectation or think that data stored on lemmy should be permanent? E.g last 20+ years. Would it matter if old inactive content was culled? If you had the ability to export data if a sever was due to go down, what would you actually do with it.
