@firstname.lastname@example.org sorry for the slow reply, yes that sounds great! I will link the chat room in the community description
Well done to everyone involved!
How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml
Reddit is really good for hobby/niche content. Reddit communities have become the largest online communities for quiet a few different interests where previously the largest communities would be independent forums.
It would be great if some forums decided to use Lemmy. I guess there are barriers to this, e.g. user interface changes might not be wanted and it might be difficult to export/import the forum history.
I like to use Lemmy though a browser on mobile, the interface is good (especially compared to reddit) but I think the buttons could be changed a bit to make it better.
I think it might improve the mobile UI to have all buttons at the bottom (sort of like in lemmur):
Buttons that I think would be useful at the bottom:
Rather than acknowledging that climate change is caused by emissions which are largely done through energy production, transport in supply chains and industrial activities, i.e. systemic elements, he goes on to complain about how individuals, who have nothing to do with energy production or transport, are hypocrites.
Almost everyone in the countries surveyd use energy and transport. Infact the countries surveyd are the largest GHG emitters (historically and per capita). Why do you think industrial emissions happen? It’s because individuals buy what companies sell.
If people (particularly in the countries surveyd):
then GHG emissions (and environmental damage in general) will continue to remain high.
The solution to global warming is to wind down the fossil fuel industry to zero, which should be easy enough to understand. This is an act that will have a significant impact everywhere and we should focus on managing that change.
Ok, how are you going to do that without reducing consumption? We have been investing in green energy for decades and fossil fuel consumption continues to increase every single year:
I don’t like the framing that it is ‘industry’ that is causing GHG emissions because it lets the actual individuals who are taking advantage of the system of the hook. These individuals are the shareholders who profit, but they are also the consumers who get ultra cheap goods because they don’t give a fuck where it came from.
Here are the projects that NLnet supports. A lot of really cool ones, including Lemmy.

The present mods responsibility is to serve the interests of the present subscribers.
I disagree, mods in general are dooing free labour for the benefit of the community.
The mod of r/piracy (one of the best resources for pirated content I have found) thinks having a backup on Lemmy would help the community. So maybe we should support this instead of saying it’s not their responsibility lol
Not using a seatbelt will still increase the chance that you are injured. This will put a burden on society.
Asking your estate to pay is useless if you have no money, insurance claims can reach the millions which most people can not afford. Pedestrians and cyclists aren’t and should not need to be insured.
Hardware problems/poor drivers: Linux runs well on some devices and not so well.on others. It is largely up to the manufacturer to make drivers so this will improve if manufacturers want to support Linux.
Software availability: Projects like nix, app image and flathub try to fix this by providing a way developers can package their app so that it can be used on all distros. As far as I can tell:
As far as I can tell nix is the best option long term but it doesn’t have a simple gui yet/at the moment. Although there is one being worked on.
There are quiet clear foreign policy differences between Obama and Trump.
Obama approached Iran diplomatically, Trump bombed a general, probably trying to start a war.
Under Obama US military was in Kurdistan, which prevented Turkey from attacking. Trump removed the troops just as Turkey was gearing up to attack.
Edit: Also Obama removed the blockade on Cuba. Trump resumed the blockade on Cuba.
Have a look at my comment here that shows what the redreader app looks like. It is a compact Reddit app: https://lemmy.ml/post/83539/comment/83464
Totally disagree that cars play a role, at least as they are now.
As they are now they:
Hydrogen/Electric self driving cars can fix 2. and maybe 5. But they still have lots of problems. So even then I would prefer they are taxed and restricted to areas’s with low population density.

A lot of these forums seem to use discourse which orders comments by time instead of votescore and comment tree.
Is it possible to translate a lemmy thread to something that orders by time like discourse? I guess you could add in an ‘@person1’ or something to show who a comment is replying to. You could translate the other way by just changing ‘@person1’ into a reply to person1 too.
I wonder if this would work well in practise though. Maybe lemmy threads are shaped differently, with more replies than discourse threads.
I think I remember either you or Nutomic talking about this actually and saying it was possible.
I think it would be really cool if forums (e.g. linux distro forums, video game forums ect) migrated to use their own lemmy instances. This would have advantages:
I guess it is sort of like same advantages as if they used a subreddit, but with the extra advantage of them ultimately having control.
This community exists as a sort of sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.
I think both communities exist for the following reasons:
yeah the sidebar could be a bit more clear. I will update it later today.
