Working on some games for game jams in my free time

Admin of programming.dev and frontend developer for sublinks

Account has automation for some scheduled posts

Site: ategon.devSocials: ategon.carrd.co

Admin here, there should be nothing censored atm apart from a couple scam links

Not sure why that says removed but its not on our end (and its like that everywhere). Lemmy probably has some handling where it also censors if the posters instance says so

Discoverability of communities across instances

If the spirit of the fediverse is to spread everything across small instances, then i think it would be really important to make communities, especially niche communities, easier to discover across instances. Since it is not planned to crawl federated instances community catalog, i think instance admins, or maybe even the lemmy...

As more people use lemmy-federate.com more niche communities will show up in most large instances by default

Imo its the ideal solution since it populates the posts in the all feed for people who don’t know about the site to still see

Ategon,
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

Yeah, disabled accounts means the instance doesn’t have a bot from the site on their instance so the site can’t federate them. Usually this would be not accepting the user application

Lemmy.world isnt in the site but most other large instances are

Ategon,
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

Even with the disabled instances, communities that get added onto there reach a much larger section of people than external community browsers do as casual users that just check the site once a day or something and don’t pay attention to external sites can still stumble on them without knowing the federate site exists or needing to know explicit community names

Ideally more instances would get added onto there but its still fine like this. Been getting some nice interactions and starting activity on new programming.dev communities

It looks like you were temp banned from the linux community for 3 days

The comment you made was transphobia which goes against the programming.dev code of conduct. I suggest reading the comment of the user who replied to you and learning how to respect people more

This comment

does not qualify as a “respectful conversations where no one is insulting each other, or anyone else”

Yeah lemmy currently doesn’t send notifications about moderation actions

Some mod teams add it in through manually dming (which usually will happen here if someone on the admin team is warning, banning, etc. you (apart from site bans which the user wouldn’t be able to access their messages from) and its not just an obvious spammer or bot) or code their own systems to notify about actions

Everything’s viewable in the modlog though and you can filter by yourself to see all actions made relating to you

It works, those statuses are just a bit misleading

How it works is it subs to a community (from all instances connected to it) until someone from an instance subs and then it unsubs in that instance. In the previous version of the site when it unsubbed it would mark the instance it unsubbed from as completed on that community (although seems to be a bit broken here)

Rather than being limited to posts themselves it probably makes more sense to attach it to certain chunks of something. For example a block of code so that people copying the code to use in their own projects after receiving help actually have the license to do so rather than that just being verbal (could make it default to MIT No Attribution or some other license the community specifies). This same logic can be extended to images (although probably with no default for those since theres way too many possible cases)

I havent looked into FOSS keyboards much but It looks like they’re licensed as GPL on the repo. The CC BY-SA is for the project icon

I’m deleting this for now since I have my own post going up connected to our blog

Edit: thought this was meta, the blog post is going into meta and ill leave this one up as the event post

If youre not part of one of the instances/countries that submitted a song theres an other option when voting

The submission period ended and its currently in voting

Regarding sublinks and feeling concerned about what is going on with it (lemmy.world)

Right now, I’m feeling concerned and wondering what is going on in regards to Sublinks here, since I have created a community for discussion on koalas about a week ago on here and have started and been doing work on it recently. But now I’m hearing about Sublinks and feeling concerned if I created it on the wrong instance or...

Ategon,
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

I dont know what youre concerned about relating to it but

Sublinks is a drop in replacement for lemmy. In version 0.1 nothing should really be different between the two apart from the default UI looking different

Ategon, (edited )
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

I’m working on the frontend for it rather than the backend so I’ll comment more about that

But a new project allows for way easier change of the base aspects. For example im currently working on a theme system thats allows for dynamic themes created at runtime as opposed to it needing to be built in. Also a components library. If this was added onto lemmy ui it would involve massacring the current structure of the UI to essentially make it a new project anyways

Originally was working on the stuff in a new UI on my own but I’ve merged that into what’s happening with sublinks since they’re making a new UI anyways as well and would let more of my UI changes to get connected up to the backend easily and shared across multiple frontends

In terms of technologies it also allows the federation code to be completely separated out from the api. Federation is currently its own project so it can be scaled separately and its made in go

Also allows for more organizational changes since we have more control over how the project is structured and the structure of how we talk to each other and decide on changes is different than how its done with lemmy (having a matrix space we talk to each other and there being weekly meetings as well)

Moderation tools is the first milestone after parity but theres also other milestones as well in terms of changes made that differentiates it from lemmy visible on our task board thats public on the github repo


Normal thats theres going to be multiple of the same type of software as people have different goals of what it should be and how it should be organized. Bevy and godot both exist in the open source gamedev space. Theres 7 misskey forks that all mostly aim to do different things but share the misskey api (and a lot of them also use the mastodon api). One of which (iceshrimp) is currently having a rewrite to change the tech stack and make it easier for them to add features

@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

Nothing would change about the community itself if it goes from lemmy to sublinks. Still accessible on the federation as normal and on version 0.1 the core features should have parity

Reposting my comment I did before:

Sublinks is a drop in replacement for lemmy. In version 0.1 nothing should really be different between the two apart from the default UI looking different

For world Ruud commented about that before and nothings been decided currently on theyre going to handle it (I assume youll see some sort of post in their meta community way before anything happens)

fair, I could repin it on one of the weekdays as well

The mod here is inactive from the site so they arent managing this as much but I think this is less AUAI content and more !lemmy_dev content since its an update post on a lemmy bot as opposed to AI discussion

Ategon,
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

Last one was a release of a new technology involving AI so would say its fine just on the edge, this ones just a small update post though

Im not modding here though. Could cross post it to lemmy dev regardless, doesnt hurt

Ategon, (edited )
@Ategon@programming.dev avatar

Threads can’t see lemmy content either, its two different message types and they don’t have handling for the one lemmy uses

(They also don’t pull posts at all, only outbound federation is implemented in threads rn)
