When I search for communities about animation on the web interface, I see one called [email protected]

There has been no activity in the /c for 6 months.

It's not my native instance, but I can read posts and comments in the /c, and I can even create a post in the /c.

But when I try to visit http://lemmy.film in a browser, I get a "Web Server Is Down" page.

Is the content in [email protected] a ghost of cached content on my native instance?

A new post with 1 deleted comment shows as "comment symbol 0 (-1 New)"

... which looks goofy.

But not in this /c, maybe there's some kind of /c setting that shows quantities of new comments?

Maybe I made and deleted the comment too soon after I created this post?

There have been a number of comment spam attacks in various posts in a couple of /c's that I follow by a user/individual who uses account names like Thulean*

For example: [email protected] in [email protected]

and [email protected] in [email protected]

edit: Also [email protected] in [email protected]

The posts have been removed or deleted by the respective /c's mods, and the offending accounts banned, but you can see the traces of them in those /c's modlogs.

The comments consist of an all-caps string of words with profanities, and Simpsons memes.

An attack on a post may consist of several repeated or similar looking comments.

This looks like a bored teenager prank, but it may also be an organization testing Lemmy's systemic and collective defenses and ability to respond against spam and bot posts.

After I've saved a post to a /c hosted by another instance than the one that I'm logged into, I can open that post for editing, but I'm unable to save my edits to that post.

For example: I made a post to [email protected], while logged in elsewhere. Something or other in the webpage link is forcing a download, so I tried to edit the URL in the post, but I can't save it.

This also happened to a post I made to [email protected] where I was trying to edit the text in the post's Body after saving the post.

I can save edits to my posts to /c's on my native instance just fine.

Before I begin, I have to say that this post includes links to an instance, ani.social, that has been defederated from this instance, lemmy.ml, because that's where I discovered this problem.

But in this case, I hope the admins understand that this is worth reporting and investigating, and don't insta-delete this post, because this problem appears to happen with more than that one instance, including sopuli.xyz, which is not defederated from here at lemmy.ml

Let us begin:

With Lemmy account setting “Auto Expand Media” turned on, when I’m viewing community https://ani.social/c/[email protected] on my desktop browser, Firefox on Windows, one particular post, https://ani.social/post/1923262 , causes the /c view to ask me to download an .mp4 video from streamable.com:

After declining the download, the space where the thumbnail for the expanded media goes is just blank.

This doesn’t happen when viewing the same /c on .ml https://lemmy.ml/c/[email protected]

On .ml, I just get a clickable thumbnail of the video.

It’s just that one post.

On other earlier and later posts of links to streamable.com videos in the same /c, I just get the expected clickable thumbnail.

Maybe some kind of corrupted data as that particular post was transferring over?

When I asked about this on ani.social's meta /c, another user reported the auto-download request on ani.social, sopuli.xyz (the /c's home!) but not on lemmy.ml and lemmy.world

CGDCT with mahjong.

Just a generic start.

There's nothing really standing out for me except the art: Those eyes look like they take ages to draw.

The comedy bits where they're imagining things while seated around the table aren't as funny as those in say "Sabagebu!"

Web interface, on Windows Firefox

I was trying to create a post with the title:

"Sokushi Cheat ga Saikyou Sugite, Isekai no Yatsura ga Marude Aite ni Naranaindesu ga. • My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me! - Episode 1 discussion"

It let me paste this much into the title box:

"Sokushi Cheat ga Saikyou Sugite, Isekai no Yatsura ga Marude Aite ni Naranaindesu ga. • My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, No One in This Other World Stands a Chance Against Me! - Episode 1 d"

Then, when I created the post, a red dialog saying "Error: invalid_post_title" popped up in the lower left of my browser.

I suspected that the pasted title was too long, so I removed some of the text, and sure enough, I was able to create the post.

  1. If it's going to automatically truncate the pasted text, it should truncate the text to an acceptable length.

  2. The error message should be more specific.

Probably obvious to anyone encountering this, and an easy workaround.

Thanks for your attention devs!

Here's a link to the actual clip: https://twitter.com/kucukmoskovali/status/1706622934234607737

The part showing Sokolov is very brief, a couple of seconds at the end of the twitter video.

He doesn't move, his eyes are closed behind his glasses, and he's propped up against a pillow.

It could be a video of a photo.

Not very convincing that he's healthy, if not dead.

Bulgaria’s Defence Ministry held a procurement procedure from September 2020 to July 2022 for a company to repair and maintain the S-300 systems.

Only one candidate was admitted, Almaz-Antey Aerospace Defense Concern, which is owned by the Russian state. However, it turned out that it did not have the ability to keep the missile systems in working order.

"Unserviceable" in this case doesn't mean the missile systems aren't working, but that future maintenance is going to be a problem because Bulgaria doesn't have the technicians and supplies to keep them in working order up to military standards.

So yes, Ukraine would be getting functional S-300 systems.

It's been that way for a loooong time.

Movies became so expensive to produce that studios can't finance them themselves.

So they turned to the banks.

Banks are by nature risk averse.

So a production company has to submit an application to their bank's movie financing department like you would when applying for a home loan.

The bank decides whether to finance the movie based on the information submitted: Script, subject matter, director, which stars have committed to the project, etc.

Now if you imagine, people from the banking industry are not artists and creatives and visionaries. They just look at raw investment potential, i.e. Is this proposed production going to pay off the loan with interest?

If there's any risk, e.g. this has never been done before, or there's no recognizable franchise branding, or if something could be controversial in a meaningful way, the bank won't approve the production loan.

So sequels, brand name franchises, with writing committees, are easier to get approvals from the banks, therefore are more likely to make it into production.

That's why Hollywood doesn't make daring, experimental, and controversial movies much anymore.

They should have worked from home. In Russia.

All of the Russians should just go home.

How indebted are the Russians to the Chinese now.

They're completely at the mercy of the Chinese government which tightly controls the Yuan

They're getting deeper into debt with Chinese banks, borrowing the equivalent of USD$10 billion as of last March, although the article doesn't say what currency the loans are in. Likely USD$.

To put that amount into perspective, Russia's USD$ currency reserves were about $599 billion as of May 2023.

The Chinese economy isn't doing so hot either

And tossing billions into the black hole that is Russia probably won't help those banks stay financially stable.

Eek! Those guys look like they know what they're doing, but they still gotta have balls of Ukrainium to be playing with those things.

The moment those Chinese EV startups enter the US market, Tesla will be in real trouble if they don't have their product quality image problem fixed by then.

It'll be like Detroit's Big 3 automakers tanking when small fuel efficient Japanese cars landed in the 70s oil crisis.

Assuming those Chinese EV companies don't have their own quality problems...

You only need to squeeze out an amount the size of a pea on to the bristles of your toothbrush.

The image of squeezing along the entire length of the brush bristles was concocted by an ad agency, a la Mad Men, to make consumers use their toothpaste faster, hence buy more product.

Where do you find instances that have more extreme media than lemmynsfw?

Asking for a friend.

LibreOffice is equal to any office software out there, and has been much more stable than OpenOffice, and works without an internet connection unlike Google Docs.
