Are there many designers here? I'm sure there're some although I haven't found many yet.

Let's use the tag - short and easy - for any user interface concepts of networks?

Since whole interface concepts require a lot of time and energy, I shall post under this tag small features that could be. The ones I'm too shy or too lazy to submit as issues. :)

Please, join

We are happy to announce that #NLnet is funding #Lemmy development! At the same time, we are releasing Lemmy v0.7.0 with new image hosting and many more features.

Hello, Fedi! Haven't been here for days.

I see new servers keep popping up (so far German users remain leaders at creating themed servers).
Nextcloud-Social released v.0.3.0, Mobilizon released 1.0.0-beta.
My timeline is full of posts about Linux.

Everything's fine then. I can safely leave you for some more days.
Here, have a treat

My wife and I are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. We're privileged to be in a better position than a lot of people right now, but we're stuck indefinitely outside our country of residence (China) and surfing from couch to couch. Most of our money is in a Chinese bank account we can't access while outside China (looong story). If anyone can offer me some paid work I can do remotely from #Aotearoa (#NZ), that would really help.

If the only way you can help is a boost, cool :)

Hi everyone, I'm off the grind, and that also means I'm off the dole. I'm running out of money, and I'm looking for a job.

If anyone needs a sysadmin with 6 years of professional and 18 years of hobbyist experience, please send me a DM.

My toolset includes (but is not limited to) the following:

- Nginx
- Caddy
- MySQL / MariaDB
- Proxmox VE
- OpenVPN
- BIND (named)
- PowerDNS
- Postfix
- Exim4
- Dovecot
- 3proxy
- HAproxy
- Quagga/Bird (limited, but still)
- Apache
- ejabberd
- Nagios (nrpe, nsca)
- IPtables
- Logrotate
- systemd
- Nextcloud

I'm open to learning new stuff.

Please repost if nothing else!

Found out about it thanks to @clacke

Nice. 😺 Added to RSS news. The only thing I wish (as always) is to see some Fedi social icon at the bottom.

@morevnaproject Happy (belated) 12th Birthday, Morevna! 🎂

Thank you for the vision: all your processes, how much you show and share. Thanks for your dedication to open source animation tools. Thanks for your - so rare and beautiful - "concept of giving"! 💚

By coincidence, Morevna project is as old as federated networks. Thanks for being on Fediverse 😃

Much luck and new horizons for the project in the years to come!

If you agree that in GitLab is a bad idea, please, add some thumbs up to @winniehell suggestions and the issues mentioned in this thread:

@lightone GitLab is one of the big clients of GitLab and has been suffering from issue spam in their own tracker for quite some time DESPITE reCAPTCHA ( There are already several services that you can pay for solving reCAPTCHAs. So I don't think it is an effective solution anyway.

Much of those spam issues could be prevented by rate limiting (which I suggested here: but I'm not sure if there are any efforts going on in this direction.

@lightone Roughly a year ago, there were attempts to completely remove reCAPTCHA (and NOT replace it with another captcha solution):

However it looks like the follow-up issue is not public:

I remember hearing from a bird that had some progress in replacing recaptcha. Looks like if it's going anywhere, it's going in the direction of hcaptcha:

has been using a horribly simple numbers captcha for years. Are such solutions *that* bad that they're always overlooked?

Hi fedizens, the crew now have an offical #fediverse account for the project!

Thanks to @feneas (Federated Networks Association), who host not only this account, but they are also our new hosts for the website itself. Our repo, issues, and wiki now hosted on their instance of GitLab. If you can afford it, please consider supporting Feneas as a financial member.

The good news in #Mastodon dev these days is that Gargron, the main developer, is "making progress on adding end-to-end encryption for direct messages in Mastodon".

It's probably going to take a while before it gets there. But it's a good step in the right direction. #E2EE #encryption

Apple talks a lot about privacy, but its only marketing. They don't actually care about privacy.
