Remmel
Since the update Remmel hasn’t been working. It’s not letting me add the Lemmygrad instance. I have tried writing it out, pasting, reloading the app, redownloading the app, and restarting my phone. Any idea how I might be able to get it to work?

Upgrade Questions - V0.17
I normally upgrade my instance using ansible and it all goes smoothly. There is more to this upgrade and I do not understand some of the instructions. I think I need more specifics. This is what I have done so far: - Went to https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy-ansible - Run Git Pull as instructed - Gone to https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/blob/main/RELEASES.md As I will probably have more then 1 question as I progress through - I will put the questions in different comments.

Lemmy Release v0.17.0
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/741567 > Its been a long time coming 🥳 . > > Excerpt from the link: > > ## Major Changes > > ### Language Tags > > Content can now be tagged to indicate the language it is written in. These tags can be used to filter content, so that you only see posts in languages which you actually understand. Instances and communities can also specify which languages are allowed, and prevent posting in other languages. > > In the future this will also allow for integrated translation tools. > > ### Comment trees > > Lemmy has changed the way it stores comments, in order to be able to properly limit the comments shown to a maximum depth. > > Included are proper comment links (`/comment/id`), where you can see its children, a count of its hidden children, and a _context_ button to view its parents, or the post. > > ### Featured posts > > Admins and mods can now "feature" (this used to be called "sticky" ala reddit) posts to the top of either a community, or the top of the front page. This makes possible announcement and bulletin-type posts. > > Special thanks to @makotech for adding this feature. > > ### Federation > > Lemmy users can now be followed. Just visit a user profile from another platform like Mastodon, and click the follow button, then you will receive new posts and comments in the timeline. > > Votes are now federated as private. This prevents other platforms from showing who voted on a given post, and it also means that Lemmy now counts votes from Mastodon. > > This release also improves compatibility with Pleroma. If you previously had trouble interacting between Pleroma and Lemmy, give it another try. > > We've extracted the main federation logic into its own library, [activitypub-federation-rust](https://github.com/LemmyNet/activitypub-federation-rust). It is open source and can be used by other projects to implement Activitypub federation, without having to reinvent the wheel. The library helps with handling HTTP signatures, sending and receiving activities, fetching remote objects and more. > > ### Other changes > > - Admins can now purge content and pictures from the database. > - Mods can _distinguish_ a comment, "stickying" it to the top of a post. Useful for mod messages and announcements. > - Number of new / unread comments are now shown for each post. > - Lemmy now automatically embeds videos from Peertube, Youtube and other sites which provide an embed link via Opengraph attribute. > - You can give your site "taglines", short markdown messages, which are shown at the top of your front page. Thanks to @makotech for adding this. > - You can now report private messages. > - Most settings have been moved from the config file into the database. This means they can be updated much easier, and apply immediately without a restart. > - When setting up a new Lemmy instance, it doesn't create a default community anymore. Instead this needs to be done manually. > - Admins can choose to receive emails for new registration applications. > - An upgrade of diesel to v2.0, our rust -> postgres layer. >

How do I promote a user to be an admin?
I can’t see anywhere in the UI to be able to promote a user to be an administrator. How do I do this?

Wolfballs successfully cancelled and announces it will be discontinued
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.perthchat.org/post/212652 > (MOB cancelled himself and thereby wolfballs) > > --- > > Thank you everyone for participating in wolfballs 1. > > This has been a wild ride. > > When wolfballs first started there was basically no free speech sites up. > > Ruqqus was shutting down, scored doesn't allow community creation, saidit was always off and there was basically no where you could post people dying of vaccines. > > It was a hard time for me. My job was threatened with a vaccine requirement. A threat I successfully fought off with a religious accommodation request. > > I was scared, I felt powerless, and I wanted a place everyone could come and talk about all the crazy stuff that was going on without being threatened with weird censorship. Like doctors post being deleted. > > Times have changed. > > Twitter is a much better place. As we've seen from Elon there is still abuse. But the fedivserse is better too with new great instances like Nazi.st > > Scotch has a lot of censorship but it is still better than reddit and you can actually get more than 20 upvotes on c/gaming. > > Discord is now a viable competitor to youtube. Publics is ok, catgirl.gay has cemented itself as the king of say anything within American legal boundaries. (But no tities) , Vivaldi social is a thing and when people want to talk about election problems or vaccines killing there are now mainstream places to do that. There was not before. > > There was a lot about moderation I did not understand though. > > For one there are a lot of real nazi's on the internet. I thought most of them were fake trolls just shit posting for lulz. > > When I thought free speech I thought that doctors, lawyers should be able to give their professional opinions without fear of censorship. > > That people should be able to give opinions on trials that are not popular but are supported by evidence. > > Things get much more complicated though. There appear to be government actors and company actors who try to prevent sites from growing by posting purposefully provocative content. > > Also the reddit format is really a relic from the early 2010's and modern bots don't allow it to function the way it was intended. > > Up/down votes are meaningless when I can deploy a thousand bots to make content what ever score I want. > > That is why reddit is full of weird products on the front page and they use so much shadow banning to try to keep that sort of behavior at bay. > > In order for a categorical social media to work it must involve curation which is just another word for selective censorship. So the format isn't really good for freespeech anyways. > > I will explore more decentralized social media but it will look different and I will be under a different name. > > It's time to hang up the mask. Masterofballs unfortunately will die. Due to vaccine induced myocarditis i'm sure. However it is not the end for Mr balls because he will one day be reborn into something else. Maybe something better. > > wolfballs will stay up for a few days for people to clean house, grab any memes you left and I'll try to keep a backup somewhere and leave a way for people to contact me if they forgot something. > > I hope everyone can check out Mike Hawk or other cool instances. > > Thank you everyone > > MOB

Correct Spelling of a Community
I just built Lemmy on a Linode VPS using Yunohost. I started creating communities but I misspelled the name of one of them. I can't see where I can edit that as an Admin. I'm really wondering if my admin console has all the feature, because I can't see how to make a user and admin either. It all seems really bare in terms of what can be done. Anyway, first things first, how do I correct the name of a community?

How can I visit the main page of another instance?
To see a community from another instance I can write ``` https://lemmy.ml/c/community@instance ``` For example ``` https://lemmy.ml/c/linux@heapoverflow.ml ``` How can I visit the main page instead of a community from another instance?

Formatting links to remote communities?
How do I format a link to a remote lemmy community that allows someone to subscribe to it directly from their own instance? An example of such a post is here https://lemmy.blahaj.zone/post/4711. This is a post made for a community on mander.xyz, posted to lemmy.ml and viewed through my instance blahaj.zone. Whichever instance you view it on, the link formats so that you can subscribe to it directly from the instance you are viewing it on. I’ve tried using /c/communityname formatting, but that doesn’t seem to work. @sal@mander.xyz

Can't post pictures from Friendica
When I try to post images/pictures from my Friendica account to a Lemmy community, it just never appears. It works fine with just text or links. Any idea why that is?

how to block instances?
There are some Lemmy instances I'd rather not have on my All feed. I know I can block individual communities but can I block entire instances or do I need to host my own to do this?

For the largest most active group of queers in #ham radio!

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/722758 > Even if it doesn't happen, I really wanna see more of this. The meta culture of fedi should seek to become evermore potent. Especially now that it's popping off.

Comments and posts not shown on Lemmy servers
Hey. I have issues when I comment posts, then sometimes it doesnt show up on the Lemmy server where the post was originally posted. Another issue is that if I try to make a post which contains a picture, then it doesnt work - only if it contains text only. What I do is that I tag the community, I want to post in. This is my Friendica account, but I have the same issues from my Mastodon account as well. Has anyone else had the same issues when interacting with Lemmy instances from other Fediverse platforms?

Urgent Warning: "Suspected Security bug" Edit : false alarm
So by complete luck I found a huge security bug in lemmy as far as I can understand. How can I test it with the team and disclose it with them? Edit: I thought it is weird that anyone can access lemmy.ml/setup but upon further investigation I found that no one can use it in anything other than the admins and that users can only signup a normal account from this page rather than admin account. Which means that this is a feature not a bug. overall I think admins should hide this page to future proof it from bugs.
