I am one of the admins of Beehaw and I’m trying to get some feedback on our potential move....
If it seems like I'm currently talking a lot about "the Media Activist Manifesto," it's because I worked on it all year, and researched the subject for twenty years. I've arrived at the conclusion that, in the spirit of #ReseauMutu, or Mutu Network, the #Fediverse can hold a key to societal change through radical news, based on a framework similar to #Lemmy, #Kbin, and in particular #Beehaw. Imagine an online space to visit for anticapitalist and antifascist information and info relevant to whichever locality you're in. Those interested in helping develop this, please let me know! https://www.mediaactivist.com/manifesto/
It would be nice to find a gaming group that’s not infected with assholes, but I feel like that’s asking too much, because Gamers are the worst.
Altho it’s not just the gaming groups. There’s a level of nastiness I wasn’t expecting going in after being on Mastodon. Mastodon has the HOA and Well Actually mansplainers, but some folks are just dicks on the #threadiverse.
Beehaw is considering other alternatives to Lemmy due to its immaturity as software and their attempts at improvements being blocked/ignored by Lemmy developers. That feels ominous to me.
It seems like Lemmy is not close to being a practical Reddit alternative. To be fair, Reddit's enshittification forced a lot on Lemmy all at once. It didn't have a chance to grow organically.
Just today, when I start Voyager the interface appears and then disappears leaving a black screen....
Returning “operation timed out” right away. Thought you would want to know. Take care.
I just came across Beehaw... is that a Lemmy instance? Looks interesting and appears to have a good philosophy. #Beehaw
Uh oh. My more recent experiences with #Lemmy and by proxy #Kbin are becoming increasingly like they were with Reddit (not good). What's the deal with that? Why is the discourse I find on #Mastodon so much more positive and productive than there? Is it an influx of ex-Reddit users bringing bad habits and negative energy with them? Is it the actual software; the format; the layout? What is it? #Fediverse
In my continuing quest to Name The #Fediverse and answer the most asked question on #AskKbin and #AskLemmy, I submit the following chart for the approval of general Fediverse users, #Mastodon users, #Pixefed users, #Threadiverse users of #Lemmy, #Kbin, and #Beehaw:
*Threadites is pronounced like Deadites
Looking back on all that social media kerfuffle lately, I think the whole "let's have everyone in the world here on the same platform" was perhaps a mistake. I'm not sure I want to have Jim Bob the Trumper reading what I post. Honestly, a curated community seems more my speed. In that vein, I'm kinda glad that my #Lemmy instance, #Beehaw, decided to defederate from a couple of instances with open signups. I don't care about big numbers or clout. I just want to be with my people.
Looks like I didn't get into #beehaw , so I'll try #kbin instead since I didn't want to associate with lemmy after the kerfuffle with Beehaw. Which is fair as I answered truthfully about what I could contribute to their community. My value and what I bring to the table, is something I don't know. The nebulous nature of my inner world can give one nothing in regards to granting an accurate answer on my value.
I’m always ready to bounce. When a resource/instance starts to go sour, I’m gone. I can’t get my head around these mainstream masses who are migration-resistant. It really takes an extreme fuckup for the masses to get enough energy to leave places like Twitter & Reddit. And where do they go? → mastdon.social, lemmy.ml… the worst of the #fedi. WTF. They will be rooted in there.
#Beehaw's aggressive defederation move is rather eyebrow raising in the wider context of how #Fediverse works; I cannot help but feel it will either rejoin soon-ish, or start declining as a community.
Not my circus, not my monkeys; but watching the last week of #Reddit migration has been fascinating. I fully assume it is very similar to the #Twitter exodus of last autumn...
I saw a post talking about whether or not to defederate with Beehaw, and then I saw a comment talking about a decision that Beehaw made and something about them being liberal, but I'm ootl. Could someone explain the situation?
