TIL you can post on lemmy while on mastodon.

@til #TIL

Some tips for this, as someone who does it all the time:

  • Tag a Lemmy community like you would a Mastodon user to get this to work, for example @til@lemmy.world, BUT…
  • The first line of your toot becomes the post title, so don’t put any links or tag the community in that first line. Newer versions of Lemmy can strip out links but it still ends up looking weird. Looks best if you do something like the example below.
  • You can only post to one community, trying to tag multiple will post to the first one and ignore the rest
  • The first image attached to your toot becomes the Lemmy post image, but subsequent images get left behind
  • If your Mastodon instance has AUTHORIZED_FETCH turned on and the Lemmy community you’re trying to post to isn’t on 0.19 yet, it won’t work at all. In theory this should be fixed when more servers upgrade but we’ll see.

Example toot format

This is my title, with nothing weird in it.

Rest of the toot goes here and will become the post body. This format will look nice on both Mastodon and Lemmy therefore not making anyone unreasonably mad at you.

@community and #Hashtags

bionicjoey,

Thank you! Honestly, Mastodon users should be banned from posting to Lemmy until after they’ve read this comment!

Not sure I’d go quite that far myself, but I do take any opportunity to emphasise the “no links in titles” thing for my own sanity 😄

Mr_Blott,

Aye but your titles and comments look like ten keyboards had a car crash fucksake

@Mr_Blott some of it seems is due to lemmy.world's config because things look different on feddit.de

0.19 tidied things up a bit but .world hasn’t upgraded yet, that’s why.

@dichotomiker

Correct me if im wrong but this isnt a top level post but rather a comment on an existing post?

@freemo @til I'll probably prefer lemmy over mastodon groups.

I havent played enough with lemmy to have an opinion. Very disapointed in their leadership though for reasons related to peripheral projects I wont get into.

@freemo @til Lemmy can sort posts by relevance and is moderated while in mastodon groups you see very irrelevant posts from time to time.

@dichotomiker

QWhen you say matodon groups do you mean the group server I wrote several years ago that integrates well with the standard, or did Eugene after years finally implement that feature lately?

@til

@freemo @til it's on the official roadmap.

Can yours be sorted?

freemo,
@freemo@qoto.org avatar

@dichotomiker

So our group server has two components, the group server itself, which is not usually where you will be viewing things or logged in. So no special sorting directly on the group server.

However on our normal server where the users live there is a "group directory" which is how they peruse the groups (as is the case for most fediverse activity). For the group support ont he client side there kinda of storting and filtering yes, but the sorting could be extended a bit to make it more powerful for sure.

@freemo You can sort by a lot on lemmy. https://dresden.network/@dichotomiker/111764862662961703

plus: there are downvotes, too.

@dichotomiker

Im sure some people lost their minds over that one :)

bionicjoey,

Ugh. All those @'s and #tags in your comment look so gross. If you’re going to post to Lemmy forums, at least have the decency to not talk like a microblogger

hightrix,

Not only that, my client shows expando links for each @ and # so it really clutters up the comment section.
