I don’t think so but maybe you should get confirmation from the Devs. I don’t know if you’re in the same case than me but I made a script to workaround this federation issue. Maybe it could be useful to you. I explained it in a little blog post

You need to at least search for remote communities from your instance to see their content appear. Keep in mind it’s not retroactive though (I think), you’ll see content from the moment you made the search.

I can see how accessing reddit content from lemmy, thus supporting reddit might be a problem for some people who don’t like big corporation/closed source software.

I think lemmy and libreddit are fundamentally two different projects because they have different goals and should stay as such.

Take a look at rofimoji. You get an emoji selector popup and inputs it in your current app.

I tried my server on a new android profile and the field was captioned “username or email” so I entered my username and I could proceed. Did you try the web version of element on those servers?

Well I guess illegal copies will still work?

Never had to use anything else than element mostly the android and desktop version. From what I know the few users on my server (~15) use element as well, android, ios and desktop.

I can’t imagine someone doing that on purpose, at least not without some comment to make sure we know it.

It looks like you’re on android, the applications lemmur and jerboa have that feature by default, although having it in the web app would be nice indeed.

Well that’s the same for other big centralized platforms, people need to start to use alternatives if the easiest/default one does not suit their needs.

I don’t see how Google play is a monopoly, you can use many other application stores, that’s simply not the definition of a monopoly. It would be a problem if it was the only available store, as it is the case with apple (correct me if I’m wrong, I’m not sure about that), but you can use for example F-droid and install your call-recording app from it.

The real issue would be if the API to record calls becomes unavailable to any app, regardless of the store (or any other origin since you can install apk from any source) it was installed from but from what I understand that’s not the case. In fact this should encourage people to use other application stores.

Other thing, when I say that we can’t expect them to follow any other rule than theirs, of course I would like them to do the good thing here but I’ve given up a long time ago on google doing the right thing for the customer and thus I think we can’t imagine a world where Google would go back to the old “Don’t be evil” era.

I’m pretty sure that would just make the girls find some other way to do it without direct contact but maybe I’m just too cynical 😃

That’s a really cool thing to do with your grandkids

Well it’s their store, we can’t expect them to follow any other rule than theirs. No one is forced to use it.

That seems like a good idea but maybe make it opt-in to avoid having to choose a default one and be forced to monitor its availability, or at least let the instance admin choose the defaults if they want to do so.

Really cool, thank you.

I have a small issue with some dark themes, but anyway I stuck with vapowave-dark even so :)

I love darkspace.

That’s very insteresting stuff, I like this kind of hack

Well, I don’t know if that’s really sad, I think people should have a minimum of knowledge to host online services. Doing it while learning system administration from scratch and hoping it will be easy is kind of naive.

I did not read the docs but if it’s not the case maybe some basic knowledge should be listed as requirement along with some links to tutorials?

I do exactly the same that way I always get new content as I check in a few times a day. I have trouble understanding the trending and active sorting methods.

Do you know and use manyverse? Care to invite me?

Hey, I just discovered manyverse. It looks interesting but I kind of understand why I had not heard of it even though it seems to have been around for a while now…It looks like it’s a little bit complicated to discover and follow people, I know it’s a common issue for decentr…


Have some of you configured your lemmy server to send e-mails using starttls?

So I have an issue with my smtp settings, I can’t get my Lemmy instance to send e-mails using my SMTP server using starttls and wondered if some of you have managed to do so? …


I installed Lemmy

I added Lemmy to the list of my self-hosted fediverse services, here’s what I think about it and how I made it more useful in a single-user instance configuration…


What did you replace youtube with

Hi everyone, I’ve been following the de-google-ify internet campaign of framasoft for several years now and have replace a lot of GAFAM services doing so but the only service I’m truly struggling with replacing is youtube…


Test pour voir si mon autre instance récupère le contenu de celle-ci

Pour vérifier si les instances distantes récupèrent le contenu de celle-ci…

Ok so I managed to make federation working, mind your versions!

I had tried version 0.11.3 and 0.13.0, those were not working, finally tried 0.13.3 as suggested by and now everything is working as expected…
