👀🎣 do you happen to know what kind of protection software your employer is using?

lemmy.ca is updated to 0.17.1, and still listed on that page? I dunno.

i highlighted the three dot button you need to press:

Choose an user of your instance

that’s the key, they have to be a member of your instance.

there should be a “NSFW” checkbox when creating a post? is that what you’re looking for? it might be different depending if you’re using an app or the regular web interface.

i believe that “26” refers to 26 ounces, so 26 ounces = 738.7396 ml, so it could be both, since it’s kind of in the middle?

  1. Hack drones
  2. Show porn
  3. ???
  4. Profit!

i believe HiddenServicePort 9998 means that, in order to access it, you will need to browse to <hostname>:9998 in the Tor Browser.

if you just want the default http port, you can try HiddenServicePort 80 i believe?

edit: i’ve never actually setup an onion service, i’m just going off what the docs are saying.

this is the correct link: https://beehaw.org/c/linuxhumor@lemmy.ml

and it shows that it has 0 subscribers from beehaw, so that’s why you won’t see any posts in your feed. it needs at least 1 subscriber from your instance, then it should federate properly.

i had no idea. (i think) they’re pretty common here in Canada, at least a lot of people i know have one.

also, sometimes it takes a bit for the community to “sync” as well. but again, it might be a different issue too, i don’t know for sure.

I have noticed this too on our instance as well. I had one user fix the issue by unsubscribing and re-subscribing to the community, then it started federating properly.

yes, exactly this. same issue with whatsapp, even though it has E2EE.

it looks like from the error message that you maybe don’t have the correct amount of whitespace. here’s a snippet of mine:

    image: dessalines/lemmy:0.16.6
      - ""
      - ""
    restart: always
      - RUST_LOG="warn,lemmy_server=info,lemmy_api=info,lemmy_api_common=info,lemmy_api_crud=info,lemmy_apub=info,lemmy_db_schema=info,lemmy_db_views=info,lemmy_db_views_actor=info,lemmy_db_views_moderator=info,lemmy_routes=info,lemmy_utils=info,lemmy_websocket=info"
      - ./lemmy.hjson:/config/config.hjson
      - postgres
      - pictrs
        max-size: "20m"
        max-file: "5"

i also added the 4 logging lines for each service listed in my docker-compose.yml file. hope this helps!

it’s just a change to the docker-compose.yml file. so depending on how your instance is setup (using ansible or docker-compose), you could just make the change yourself.

i believe that’s just a regular docker log file. i don’t think by default that docker shrinks their log files, so it’s probably everything since you started your instance.

i’m just guessing though.

there’s still 2 or 3 of us lemmy.ca users who are occasionally active, haha. I just lurk most of the time.

@asonix@lemmy.ml see comments above.

also, just to be clear, that link with ?format=webp is the link that lemmy tries to load when the pic is clicked on.

that option just disables the built-in firefox controls to turn on PiP mode, where you can drag the video outside of the browser window, and browse other tabs, etc.

i believe websites are still free to do their own thing with their videos.

so it sounds like an extension (like you already mentioned) is your only option to disable them.

i get a 500 internal server error when attempting to fetch this url:


with the response: {"msg":"Unsupported image format"}

seems like maybe a pictrs issue?

i’m able to view the image if the ?format=webp isn’t in the link.

there’s just a regular setting for it, from the link above:

I would guess it’s a federation issue maybe? maybe if a down vote doesn’t federate for whatever reason but the user decided to un-down vote and that does federate? I dunno, just a guess.

100% agreed. I use it every day. I do understand his frustration though.

i believe they typically run as a service on a computer, monitoring the subreddit via the reddit api, the when it finds new stuff, it posts it onto lemmy.

I think their doc’s are decent? and I could be wrong, and maybe it depends on the Linux distribution, but I’m just not 100% sure if it actually does anything without some basic configuration.

disable root login over ssh, and use public keys auth if possible.

fail2ban is good, but needs to be configured properly.

there’s probably lots more, but that’s a start.

i’m pretty sure searching for it does force it to be “fetched”. you can do the same with comments. but i don’t know why they’re not being federated automatically.

i’m seeing this on my instance as well. as of right now, for this post:

https://lemmy.ml/post/179265 - 5 comments
https://lemmy.ca/post/81014 - 2 comments

not sure if it’s related or not, but just going through my logs, i’m seeing a few warnings similar to this:

a few days ago i was having issues where no comments seemed to be coming over from other instances, but i realized that i forgot to setup time syncing on my server, so i’m guessing my server time was off by more than 10 seconds which was causes federation to not work, according to the docs. but since i got the time sync working, most comments seem to be working, but not all?

I pay for hosting lemmy.ca myself. i just took it over from the previous admin, since they were unable to.

hello all, i've taken over [lemmy.ca](https://lemmy.ca), as originally discussed here: https://lemmy.ca/post/49203 with [kinetix's](https://lemmy.ca/u/kinetix) help, it looks like everything has been migrated over. let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues. thanks!
