Kampioenennnnn!!!!!!!! 😜

Canvas in 30 days 👀 (

cross-posted from:

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)


Woo-hoo today's my cake-day on actually I'm the first here but many will follow the next days. Happy cake day to you all!

I do host some stuff myself 😉 but there's one thing to keep in mind.

Don't self host stuff that your family still needs after you're gone. Unless they are self host nerds like you. I stopped self hosting our mail and docs for example.

Would you agree?

I did register planning to host that one day, but I need some more selfhosting nerds to help out running all these instances :-) The foundation is now already running a few dozen Fedi instances :-D

I found this community via their website :-) The link is here: under forums.

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

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 months 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 :-) )

[–] [email protected] 23 points 3 months ago (2 children)

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.

[–] [email protected] 14 points 3 months ago (3 children)

.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.

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.

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:

  • Cardano address: addr1v9qv6xvfwcx9ny56uag4umu6238sw2e7ff2kcxl3qe7p9esayjxgu

Thank you!

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.


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?


I've written a short blog about what happened in August, and the finances.

180 (

I did it again.... started another Fediverse service, this time a Bookwyrm instance.

I used Goodreads, but if there's a Federated alternative, why not use that.. So I setup a server and opened registrations.

Enjoy, and please let me know if you find anything that can be improved or changed.

There was another attack going on (as you might have noticed). We're working on a fix. In the meantime, we've blocked the listing of comments, so we at least aren't down, but it did break comments.

Hope to have a fix in the next hour. Stay tuned!

Update OK we've implemented a fix, again many thanks to @[email protected] for his assistance. This will prevent the outages we've seen last couple of days. Let's see what they will come up with next...


A few days ago I saw some cool JoinLemmy stickers created by @[email protected] . I asked her if she could also create stickers, and she did!

You can see and order them here, also check the other cool stickers in her shop.

Thanks for creating them! has been down between 02:00 UTC and 05:45 UTC. This was caused by the database spiking to 100% cpu (all 32 cores/64 threads!) due to inefficient queries been fired to the db very often.

I’ve collected the logs and we’ll be checking how to prevent this. (And what caused this)


Update The upgrade was done, DB migrations took around 5 minutes. We'll keep an eye out for (new) issues but for now it seems to be OK.

Original message We will upgrade to 0.18.3 today at 20:00 UTC+2 (Check what this isn in your timezone). Expect the site to be down for a few minutes. ""Edit"" I was warned it could be more than a few minutes. The database update might even take 30 minutes or longer.

Release notes for 0.18.3 can be found here:

(This is unrelated to the downtimes we experienced lately, those are caused by attacks that we're still looking into mitigating. Sorry for those)
