Communities on the fediverse aren’t beholden to a single instance as well. If .ml admins can’t come to agreement to refederate, y’all should contact the shinobu bot dev to start including links to ani-social discussions on this instance, and petition mods of this community to do something to help that transition (what that is? I dunno).

That said, I’m saying this having read these comments but not the og post. idk what the actual context to the conversation is, nor validity of the defederation, I’m just pro-democracy.

I of course can’t speak on behalf of N3DSdude, but I’m in support of whatever the community wants to happen, happening. Just give us reason to believe it’s actually a significant portion of the community please

This is clearly causing pretty fundamental problems to infrastructure this community’s reliant on. Cross-promotion would be fine, imo. We just need to know what the users want of the community.

Anime Questions, Recommendations, and Discussion Thread [Week 44]

Hello once again my fellow anime enthusiasts. This is the thread in which you can pour out your heart and soul about any anime-related topic you feel like. Want to know what to watch next? Want to espouse the virtues of your favorite 80’s anime? Just want to check in with others about shows you are vibing with this season?...

I got it a bit ago, sorry for the delay; federation apparently doesn’t distribute moderation properly

Looking forward to a movie of this! I loved the tv series.

Circles? Like from Google+?

Just requires whoever picks it up be in a country that doesn’t respect US IP law.

Lemmy was never known as Usenet.

I guess you’re just too smart for people to understand.

Forgive my ramblings, but here’s the main differences I see, from a community perspective:

Bluesky’s for people who loved twitter circa 2015
Mastodon’s for people who loved the format but hated the way the platform made use of it. The community is FOSS-focused and anti-corporate.
Bluesky folks are anti-corporate, but they still want their social media to be on a single platform and tend to dislike federation
Mastodon folks tend to be in smaller circles and more tech enthused

Features-wise, Mastodon kills the algorithm in favour of chronological timelines and lists, while Bluesky embraces algorithms, allowing people to even make their own algorithms for the platform. Bluesky’s AT Proto uses “DIDs” to identify users, which are associated directly with a domain^[or subdomain]. This means that when federation does eventually happen, usernames will just be @my.domain.com instead of ActivityPub’s @actor.

Federation’s still not enabled so I have no clue how things will look and feel on that front, nor am I familiar enough with the protocol to make any claim about how versatile it is. ActivityPub is flexible enough to be a Twitter clone, a reddit clone, a blogging platform, a youtube clone, a twitch clone, a goodreads clone, or several other formats. AT Proto’s currently only proven to work for a Twitter clone.

Totally valid. For me the killer feature is being able to change the weights for various sites, making it so websites with content that’s not useful to me or I don’t like don’t appear^[e.g. apple.com, facebook, nypost, quora], pinning websites that I consider best-of-class for their relevant searches^[e.g. wikipedia, the ffxiv wiki], and prioritizing websites I do like, but aren’t always the best answer^[e.g. opencritic, speedrun.com, cbc, w3schools, github].

They also have a “Lenses” feature that lets you make your own search lens (like I have one for Lemmy-only results), but I’ve not really had much use for those.

ram,

Oh ya I use that as well, to turn Youtube results into Invidious, reddit into web.archive.org/save/, twitter into nitter, tiktok into proxitok, and AMP results into normal articles. It’s nice because, since I use kagi on my phone, it reaches where extensions don’t normally.

There’s literally not. For blocking, sure, but not changing the behaviours of your search algorithm.

ram,

Blocks sites you specify from appearing in Google search results

I wonder if you even read my comment? Also chill, there’s no need to condescend over a search engine lmao.

I appreciate the apology ♥

Can’t say I’ve felt any such issues. Probably comes down to you being on the biggest instance.

So I’m just thinking about how this would work, in a perfectly non-competitive world:

There’d need to be some Browser Standards Association to implement and suggest browsers to add to a list of “certified browsers”, with transparent requirements to be included to ensure low quality or outdated browsers aren’t included. The OS would need to implement that entire list in a randomized format. There’d preferably be some sort of built-in pros/cons list of the browser, I suppose these could be put together by a combination of the BSA and the competing browsers.
But these pros/cons won’t be understandable or significant to 95% of people.

The BSA would also want to ensure there’s diversity not just in browser and companies (like Opera getting 3 fucking entries), but would also want to ensure there’s a variety of browser engines (preferably not just chromium and webkit).

There was clear damage resulting from the admin’s actions.^[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2023_Ohio_train_derailment] Did the rail workers ever have their demands met? /g

You really need a ukelele for your apologies.
