Could you explain what you mean by this? Obviously Asians are allowed on this instance, so there must be some misunderstanding?

[-] ruud 4 points 1 week ago

You're welcome. And thanks for the interview video, that's cool :-)

[-] ruud 5 points 1 week ago

Hi, I'll assist. Let me look into this.

[-] ruud 4 points 1 month ago

Well thanks! ;-)

I don't know yet. I think that's something we need to discuss with the team and get input from the users. (Yes, I did register :-) )

[-] ruud 21 points 1 month ago

I really hope there will be an option in Lemmy and Sublinks (and bin,mbin etc) to move communities between instances. But I think that's not very easy. I agree that having a few large instances isn't how the fediverse is meant to be. Ideally there would be a separate instance for each community.

[-] ruud 13 points 1 month ago

.world has many instances in the fediverse and existed long before Ruud has never, to my knowledge, posed anything like this post about another potential fedi service. The other fediverse services have coexisted without need to position them against each other. This difference in approach implies intentions, if not outright actions with the illusion of user input.

I see my name mentioned here, but I don't understand the remark. Positioning fediverse services against each other? The team has posted this to get input to assist the Sublinks development team in getting moderation tools in their software. I think it's good there's many options in software to choose from. Lemmy, Kbin, Main, Piefed, Sublinks. I also run mastodon, but also similar platforms like firefish, sharkey, akkoma etc. Users can choose. Nothing is positioned against each other. They all work together as 1 large Fediverse. And, the more instances, the better. The fediverse ideally should exist of many instances instead of a few large ones. (Yes, I agree that having 1 big Lemmy server isn't ideal. But that's another discussion.)

It's also an option to just ask if it can be unpinned. You're welcome. Have a nice day.

I like Vivaldi, which is Chromium based. I also like Safari for the speed. Difficult to choose between the two. The feature that Vivaldi has and Safari hasn't, which I'm missing in Safari, is tab auto-refresh.

[-] ruud 6 points 2 months ago

That won't work. I have 340k users on my servers and it just covers the running cost. So with a 100 user instance you would get peanuts.

Currently we have an images issue. Our Wasabi (S3) account was disabled because of some illegal content that was found, we're working with them to get the account re-enabled and the content removed.

[Update 20240308 14:47 UTC] The issue has been fixed.

Have a good weekend!

Normally not a fan of Eurovision music, with some exceptions. But this year's entry for The Netherlands is a very nice 90's happy harcore tune. Pays-bas douze points

There's some unrest because the Open Collective Foundation is stopping.

Don't worry, we use Open Collective Europe as a donations platform, they're going nowhere.

We've added some donation platforms, so if you would like to support us running our .world servers, you can do so here:

And for those wanting to donate crypto:

Next to and I am also running This was running Calckey, a Misskey fork. That was re-branded to FireFish (that's the danger of running sites with the software name in the URL... :-) ).

Unfortunately due to circumstances the FireFish software will no longer be maintained. Therefore I was looking for another Misskey fork that could replace it, and I found Sharkey. This looks really nice.

So being who I am, I registered and installed it. It still needs some configuring and branding, but it works and you can use it! (As you will see it currently uses the branding)

I will write a brief how-to on migrating from Calckey to Sharkey and hope the users will migrate.

PSV - PEC Zwolle 4-0 (

PSV won its 12th match in Eredivisie in a row. They're now 7 points ahead of number 2 Feyenoord.

I run a server , which used to be CalcKey, but the software was re-branded to Firefish. Unfortunately, is taken. What domain should I use for my new Firefish instance? Preferably a .world domain.

I have remembered these options suggested to me so far:

  • (a sort of fish similar to the firefish)

Any other suggestions? Or do you like one of the above?
