I finally got around to setting up the e-mails correctly for my instance (mander.xyz) and noticed that the e-mail deliver-ability is awful, as I get heavily penalized by spam filters for having an .xyz domain. I would not be surprised if search engines penalize this too.
It is not a simple task to change a domain name for an instance without breaking federation, so once you have a federating instance you are are stuck with that domain name.
I would not recommend picking an .xyz domain for your instances unless you intend it to be a private instance forever. If possible, try to go for a .com, or some other more standard TLD!
In an effort to move community communication (announcements and discussion) away from Big Tech and protect users from generalized monitoring, I just set up this instance and am already excited about lemmy! It's extremely fast and seems to be very robust.
Is there a tool to import all previous posts ([r/splitlinux](https://www.reddit.com/r/splitlinux))?
Sortition, back in some of the old greek citystates, they would simply draw lots for political offices. Essentially meaning random people get to be mod. This is meant as a way to limit corruption.
By divine graphology. Meaning that candidate mod write something with pen on paper, and a council of divinely inspired priests judge the aptitude, character, skill, and more based on the writing (not the text, the strokes themselves). This would probably lead to a society with incredibly pretty (and probably illegible) handwriting.
Anigarchy. The original founder of the instance rules absolutely, this remains possible long after their death, through shamans who are able to communicate with the souls of the dead.
Reincarnation, like the dalai lama, the same person is continually reincarnated in new bodies to continue their rule.
The method of the least willing. There is an addage about the best leaders being the ones who don't want the job. Why not turn that into the basis of your mod hunting?
Actual anarchy hive mind, no mods content removed once it gets reported enough
Just a new Lemmy instance, still trying to figure out just exactly what it's going to be. Plan on messing around with a custom lemmy-ui instance, as well as possible bridges / integrations with other services like Mastadon, Matrix Server (bridged w/ IRC, Discord, Telegram, etc..), Custom Laravel Backend, and some cool bots to add some useful functionality.
Hi, I tried to make a classic interface for Lemmy.
U can see this in uebishe.com
My work is available for general use, if you want - you can find the necessary folders on my github.
It is necessary to install both of them.
I will try to support Lemmy feature updates for this UI.
A few clarifications:
>- This UI only works when selecting the theme "Litera.css"
> - Other themes don't work as they should
> - I have already started developing a dark theme
It still has a lot of bugs and redneck code (mine), but it's convenient to use it.
I decided to make a new instance to go with my first instance midwest.social. This one is for, but not limited to, leftists in the US state of Ohio (The buckeye state).
I'm also sitting on some domains for Cleveland, Ohio (thecle.social) as well as the state of Michigan (wolverinestate.social) and Detroit, Michigan (motorcity.social).
I'm not quite sure when I'll set up the other instances. I may give the domains away to the right person/people when the time is right. Overall they cost me like $45 a year altogether.
