Hey there! I am a science/technology enthusiast and regular contributor to Wikipedia. Elsewhere you may find me with the @JackFromWisconsin@wikis.world handle.
Indeed. However, understand that Lemmy has like 100K people or so, while Mastodon is over 9 Million. Much easier to build a topical instance on a larger platform. Lemmy will have it’s time soon.
@email@example.com is creating a hosting platform that supports Lemmy called “Space Host”. Once his platform releases, and it becomes much easier to run a Lemmy instance, we are going to see a lot of people here in the “Lemmyverse”.
My point was that members should treat admins with basic respect. I wasn’t clear. How I worded it was threatening members to act “in line” otherwise deplatform. What I meant is that admins shouldn’t be accused of being a Nazi, antisemitic, etc. Because they’re just going to shut it down, “deplatforming” everyone.
thanks for the ping. I’m kinda in the same boat as Chris below. I never was a Twitter user and I don’t know the first place to start. I did create a reddit: https://old.reddit.com/r/midwestsocial just to claim the name, really. I also experimented with sharing a /c/ community in reddit subs, and that went about as well as expected (banned from one, attacked by right-wing users in another, and ignored in a third). I don’t want to aggressively promote Lemmy stuff like that, otherwise people will see us as spammers.

Should be fixed up by the next release
The mockup below by @0x1C3B00DA@lemmy.ml looks pretty close to how I was envisioning it. It definitely looks off, and that’s why my preferred implementation is that Mastodon (and the other microblog services) add title support. Since they won’t or aren’t, I would rather that non-local content is preserved how it was, without too significant guesswork to fill in each platforms’ fields. Titleless, but preserving the post and not having a poor title is preferable to me than an awkward title that anyone on mastodon doesn’t see and doesn’t know about.
Allowing for people on lemmy to submit titleless posts can be allowed, since the tech would already be in the front-end to display it. Doesn’t have to be allowed, though.
It looks like you’re just supposed to redirect the draft page. See here, #17
Titles could become optional for short text posts. You could allow up to 500 characters in the body field to be a stand alone post title-less, which automatically adds support for all fedimicroblog services. This would have to be a setting per community to allow title-less posts or not, including a warning that this would break compatibility with mastodon, etc.
Just to note the title is misleading – these were not staff nor paid. They got it right in the article, at least:
Two high-ranking “admins” – volunteer administrators with privileged access to Wikipedia, including the ability to edit fully protected pages – have been imprisoned since they were arrested on the same day in September 2020, the two bodies added.
I am working on creating !firstname.lastname@example.org , which will be for listing and discovering new communities, preferably those on smaller instances (to promote federation). It’s currently unfinished but I’ve been slowly working on adding new communities. Feel free to suggest any!
Don’t how up to date this is, but here are a few communities:
Should be in your three dots on a post.
