@ruud@lemmy.world

Admin of a lot of fediverse servers, among which the .world ones:

  • lemmy.world
  • mastodon.world
  • calckey.world

You can find me on these servers as @ruud

I receive a lot of messages, direct and mentions. I can’t reply to them all. If you have an issue, please e-mail at info@lemmy.world

Hosting a writefreely.org instance ( k.fe.derate.me )

Looking through the writefreely.org instances on their website, a lot of the links are dead or closed for registration. The one that is open and working is promoting a paid version. Is hosting a writefreely instance heavy on resources, attracting the wrong people or just not "cool" enough?

I did register writefreely.world planning to host that one day, but I need some more selfhosting nerds to help out running all these instances :-) The foundation is now already running a few dozen Fedi instances :-D

I found this community via their website :-) The link is here: https://proton.me/community under forums.

I deleted pasts posts with personal information in them after at least two users admitted to doxing me

After two users admitted to doxxing me, and another admitted to digging through all of my past posts and comments, I decided to deleted my past posts. One user put my name, and my husband’s name into a comment box on one of my posts, and then tried to claim he hadn’t doxxed me for that information....

Hi, I'll assist. Let me look into this.

You're welcome. And thanks for the interview video, that's cool :-)

.world has many instances in the fediverse and existed long before Lemmy.world. Ruud has never, to my knowledge, posed anything like this post about another potential fedi service. The other fediverse services have coexisted without need to position them against each other. This difference in approach implies intentions, if not outright actions with the illusion of user input.

I see my name mentioned here, but I don't understand the remark. Positioning fediverse services against each other?
The team has posted this to get input to assist the Sublinks development team in getting moderation tools in their software.
I think it's good there's many options in software to choose from. Lemmy, Kbin, Main, Piefed, Sublinks. I also run mastodon, but also similar platforms like firefish, sharkey, akkoma etc. Users can choose. Nothing is positioned against each other. They all work together as 1 large Fediverse. And, the more instances, the better. The fediverse ideally should exist of many instances instead of a few large ones. (Yes, I agree that having 1 big Lemmy server isn't ideal. But that's another discussion.)

I really hope there will be an option in Lemmy and Sublinks (and bin,mbin etc) to move communities between instances. But I think that's not very easy.
I agree that having a few large instances isn't how the fediverse is meant to be. Ideally there would be a separate instance for each community.

ruud Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

I don't know yet. I think that's something we need to discuss with the team and get input from the users.
(Yes, I did register sublinks.world :-) )

I like Vivaldi, which is Chromium based. I also like Safari for the speed. Difficult to choose between the two.
The feature that Vivaldi has and Safari hasn't, which I'm missing in Safari, is tab auto-refresh.

I see it OK when logged in, in the default UI.

No, this time it's in the Mastodon bucket

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

This is f**kin annoying me. Because we don't pay for premium support, it takes them hours to respond to an e-mail.
So they ask me to specify a time when they can enable the account, so I can immediately remove the content.
So I specify 12:00 UTC, but they don't respond so I need to propose a new time hoping they will respond before that...

Grrr

I run a pixelfed and misskey on the same server, and used to run a mastodon besides that. No issues. (I use docker)

Hmm. Why does Lemmy mess up the links...

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah almost all links were broken, not sure how. I edited them, saved and they were broken again...
For now it seems it's fixed.

Thanks!!

We keep that at https://blog.mastodon.world
(I know, I'm behind with that...)

Ko-Fi or PayPal directly, or crypto

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Ohh I didn't know there was a minimum setting in Ko-Fi. I changed the minimum there to 1.
Thanks!

I added a Liberapay link: https://liberapay.com/fhf/

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

That won't work. I have 340k users on my servers and it just covers the running cost. So with a 100 user instance you would get peanuts.

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

It's also an option to just ask if it can be unpinned. You're welcome. Have a nice day.

ruud Mod ,

Yeah it's Sunday. Someone hasn't had their coffee yet it seems. :-)

I was able to enable my 2FA now :-)

Someone should build a Lemmy client so we don't see that ugly colour anymore!
And give it a StarTrekkie name!

;-)

ruud Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Thanks. This made us find out that we misconfigured it. I have now changed the configuration, hope it works.

ruud Mod , (edited )
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Mastodon.social has the default 500 character limit. There are a few which have changed that (because it's not a configurable setting). Most large servers on this list aren't blocking too many others and aren't blocked by others https://fedidb.org/software/mastodon
(Maybe don't choose mstdn.jp)

I host https://mastodon.world myself but there are many others like it. For me, choices could be based on:

  • What's the server topic (if any)
  • Is the server run by a single person, or a team? (For continuity reasons, but this info is mostly hard to find)
  • Can I agree with the server rules?

Also, you could consider other platforms which are similar to Mastodon, and can communicate with Mastodon, but might have some features you prefer which Mastodon hasn't't (like quote posts, bigger character limit etc). For my personal account, I use Sharkey (https://sharkey.world is mine too), but you can also consider Pleroma, Friendica and many many others.

Sorry if I made the choice more complicated... and let me know if you have questions.

Yeah somewhere between twitter and facebook clone, more like Mastodon. But open-source and federated, like Lemmy.

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

For moderators surely Mastodon. For admins too..
For users: that's a taste-thing.
I'm not a developer so can't say...

ruud OP Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Ahh yes I meant as opposed to Twitter and Facebook. But I worded it badly 😁

[Done] Pictrs Migration- Between NOW and 1700 UTC Image Upload Disabled

Hi all, We will be attempting to migrate Pict-rs tomorrow starting at 1700 UTC. Between now and 1700, image uploads will be disabled to try and avoid any data loss. You will still be able to like, comment and post until then. During the upgrade window, Pict-rs will be offline, so viewing images might not work. In theory...

ruud Mod ,
@ruud@lemmy.world avatar

Actually 2 reasons why. First and most important, this was needed so we can use tooling to detect and remove CSAM material. Secondly, it’s because this is more cheap and scalable than having it on disk.
