turns out I did my math wrong, so it’s a little less than 30 days

July 12th, 2024 @ midnight EDT


✨ this year’s event also supports the entire fediverse not just Lemmy!

(you have to be able to make/receive text posts, like mastodon, lemmy, pixelfed, etc) (peertube accounts will not work)

you can get update announcements on other fedi platforms with @[email protected] link

chat about Canvas on Matrix or Discord (they’re bridged)

I've been using an app so long I forgot my actual password! But when I go on the sh.itjust.works main site and put my email in the reset page it doesn't really do anything

Edit nvm I remembered my password but still the reset function didn't work for me so for the sake of other users it should be checked out

Not done by me, but @[email protected]. Thought it deserved a crosspost, though.

Happy cake day, sh.itjust.works!

Many of us are having our cake days, or are close to them. What were your highlights over the past year? Did you enjoy or appreciate a particular community, user, trend, or something else? We want to hear about it!

Joyeux anniversaire, sh.itjust.works!

It's stressing me out to leave communities that are relevant to it unblocked. The sheer cynicism is affecting my mood and I'm having to block all communities about real life news of any kind for personal health, so I am wondering if anyone considers "A Boring Dystopia, but instead of being boring, it's edgy or (at best) a cool workaround for corporate internet BS." a deserving project to continue? I plan to remain lead mod but give the first new moderator free reign; I wouldn't be asking this if I had any intention of ever pulling anything stupid like deleting it on a whim, I think I would like to see it continue but in better hands than my own.

Image upload error? (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Error message when trying to post an image:

Slightly different error on mlmym interface:

Funnily enough, I seem to be able to upload these small screenshots embedded in a post just fine. The photo I'm trying to upload is less than 2 MB. Is that too large?

Any relation to these problems?

Any other info which might help diagnose the problem?

A few sublemmys I moderate have accumulated some inactive moderators.

They weren't bad mods, and I'd happily welcome them back if they become active again, but several accounts have had zero activity for several months. This gives the impression that the sub is better staffed than it is, and I wouldn't want users reporting a problem to a dormant account.

Should inactive moderators be removed? If so, is there a standard etiquette of messaging them every x days for y weeks before removing them?

Some moderators have lower seniority than my account, but a few have higher seniority, often the original creator of a sublemmy during the Reddit blackout last June. How should these cases be handled?

Just curious to see because I noticed any recent beehaw post don't appear

It might not just be lemmy.world, but several times recently I've made posts (usually to !helldivers2.lemmy.ca) that I check throughout the day. Then like 8 hours after I've made the post, I'll see comments appear from people on lemmy.world that are several hours old.

It seems like there can be a queue that gets build up and then is suddenly flushed.

I see it happening the other way as well. This morning I made a post from my sh.itjust.works account and then switched over to a lemmy.world account and can't see it. So the delay is going both ways.

I'm not sure if !Main is the correct place, but I couldn't find any support or question community for sh.itjust.works. Something that could be created and linked in the FAQ?

Well back to the issue: I can't upvote or downvote any posts. Not even my own I think, as I tried to downvote a created post on !test. This is both in a web browser and through the Voyager app. In the app I get a message: Problem voting. Please try again.

Anyone who has any ideas what is causing this?

Hi All,

On some francophone communities, ou friend @[email protected] has run a couple of tests to understand how does language tag work in community with a default language. See that thread (En Français) for details.

The interesting part is that the behaviour changes based on which instance you post from (I believe all the tests have been done /c hosted by jlai.lu ) To summarize if the community default language is french a post from Lemmy.ca or Blahaj would be automatically tagged as in french while a post from SJW and lemmy.ml won't get automatically a language tag.

I haven't run all the test by myself and just agreed to be the messenger as someone using SJW. No idea whether it's just about setting a flag user-side, or whether it's a very specific lemmy version which enable this discussion.

A short note on language tags too. Not only, they avoid to deal with that frustrated person downvoting content they don't understand. But I've read a nice Mastodon thread about how they matter for visually impaired user who need their screen-reader to know which language they read. So they're very relevant.

Finally, while I'm complaining to our beloved great admins. I've seen that I tried to write that post in French first, but was blocked due to language setting, c'est dommage pour une instance bilingue

Mlmym instance? (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 3 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Hey folks,

Is it possible to have a mlmym endpoint for sh.itjust.works? Maybe old.sh.itjust.works?

I know the lemmy ui has come a decent ways.. but sometimes I just want to look at it like old reddit.

lemmy.world has one: https://old.lemmy.world/

If not: no big deal. if so: would be cool.

This may be linked to the recent update since I posted something two days ago without problem, and I saw to other users commenting about the same problem on the upgrade post. It is not an app specific problem: Eternity just says "Error: 400" when trying to post something with an image, but if I use a browser (tried with both Mull on Android and Firefox on Debian), I get the following error:

{"data":{"error":"unknown","message":"Request error: error sending request for url (http://pictrs:8080/image): error trying to connect: tcp connect error: Connection refused (os error 111)"},"state":"success"}

I hope this is the correct place to post about it, sorry if not. Have a good day!

I might be wrong but I'm 90% sure the Shadowrun (ttrpg) community was on this instance. Now I can't find it anywhere (cross-instance community search doesn't find it too) and I can see in my profile that my posts sent there disappeared too.
Was the community closed? I couldn't find this info in the modlog

submitted 3 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

With the latest announcement regarding google allegedly paying reddit 60million per year for access to user created content to train their AI, what is stopping companies from using the freely available information on the lemmyverse to do it for free?

How does everyone feel about the likelihood of this already happening and should something be done about it?

Hello sh.itjust.works community,

Many of you have been eager to get an update about when the sh.itjust.works instance will get it's upgrade to the latest version of lemmy. Here's a update along with a tentative timeline.

In December 2023 I purchased a new server for this community. It took me awhile but I eventually made the time to get it racked at the local datacenter. For the sysadmins lingering and those interested here are the specs:

  • Dual Xeon 2.9Ghz CPUs (32 cores total)
  • 256GB ram
  • 4 x 1TB SSD in raid 10 (with room to add 6 more disks)
  • 10gbit networking

While I'm ready to proceed with the upgrade, I've decided to first migrate this instance over to the new hardware. Here are two reasons.

  1. Those of you who have been around long enough may remember that I've been running this instance on "borrowed" unused resources that were available at the time. There are no more resources available for this instance to grow.
  2. There are reports that the latest version of lemmy may use more resources. Given we are among the bigger instances, should I end up in a situation where I need to increase resources to keep things fast I'll be restricted.

Here's the tentative timeline:

Task Date Expected Downtime
Migration to new server Tuesday February 27 2024 @ 8:00PM ET 90 Minutes
Upgrade to V19.3 Thursday February 29 2024 @ 8:00PM ET Up to 120 Minutes
  • If anything major goes wrong on the 27th I will revert back the changes and bring the instance back up on the current server.
  • If anything major goes wrong on the 29th I will revert back using an earlier snapshot. If that fails, I will restore from a backup.

During these two planned events those who want to provide moral support or who want to get periodic updates are more than welcome to join us on our matrix channel

Update February 29 2024
We've successfully completed the upgrade to v1.9.3. I'm happy to announce that we did it in an astonishing 27 minutes, a whole 93 minutes under what was expected. The extra leg work that was done over the last few weeks combined with the better hardware definitely played a part. Looking over the processes, it looks like the service responsible for images is still doing some work so it's possible that you will come across some broken images. I'll be keeping on eye on that over the next bit and make adjustments if needed. Thank you all for the support and to all of you who kept me company on our matrix channel. Have a good evening.

Update February 27 2024
We've successfully completed the migration. I'm happy to announce that this instance is now running on its new hardware dedicated solely to this community! We experienced just under 40 minutes of downtime which is a whole 50 minutes less than expected. Please give this instance a chance to catch up what it missed but we should be good within the next 30 or so minutes. Thank you

Just wondering if we have a revised timeline is for upgrade to 0.19.x.

A couple weeks ago, the target date was "end of the week".

This past weekend, it seems like the target date is "soon".

Is there anything more specific which could be shared at this time, or perhaps a list of outstanding tasks which need to be completed before the upgrade?

As always, big thanks to the admins for keeping this instance running! Thanks for giving me a home on the Fediverse these past few months :)

For those using Private message on Lemmy, there is a major vulnerability. It seems that this instance still runs 18.5

I know that our beloved admins are volunteers and busy, so I don't blame them for not updating, but while waiting for the update be aware that your PM are as public as your comments
