Closing Registrations. Reflecting on viability of continuation of Yiffit

Hello, Unfortunately I am not able to take care of Yiffit as it deserves. Unfortunately, having been blocked by lemmy.ml, Yiffit is not a good instance to explore the lemmyverse because it is restricted. At the same time, I feel like there’s countles off other sites where Yiff can be found in a better way....

Ah, I did not know this was a problem. The only reason I haven’t upgraded yet is because it could break the current config. In any case, I’ll try doing it as soon as possible.

I’m sorry. Apparently the Lemmy server component went down but because the frontend was still responsive my downtime monitor didn’t detect it as down.

Thank you. I’ll add that to the status monitor. Do you have experience in system administration? I am basically unable to take proper care of yiffit at the moment, often being out of town and I need some help :(

Yes, I’ll upgrade this week at latest. Sorry for keeping us back. Historically that used to be the safest decision for Lemmy, but I do realize it’s been a long time.

I’m working on it. Apologies for the downtime. I added enough resources to keep this from happening for another year, although I’ll try to migrate to 0.19 this week.

Can't upload images: {"data":{"msg":"IO error: Os { code: 28, kind: StorageFull, message: \"No space left on device\" }","files":null},"state":"success"}

I was about to change my profile picture and I got that error, I assumed it was an occasional problem because my PC has a lot of space available so I tried to upload an image and I couldn’t either because of the same error code....

Thank you for letting me know. I’ll have a look into it as soon as possible!

It should now work again! Apologies!

I’m still around, but busy. I’ll try to enable push notifications.

It can be made easily via their API, but depends on what features you’re looking for. What is it that you miss from the web version?

Wander,
@Wander@yiffit.net avatar

Yes, so the bot currently uses a library that I compiled on windows and the whole bot only runs on windows right now, which I need to change because it’s not viable to keep it running from my PC / dev environment.

Yes, but It’s pretty hands off since 99% of security stuff is managed for you by the Lemmy software, including rate limiting. Just make sure you use a secure password and if you want put the instance behind cloudflare which is super easy to do.

Wander,
@Wander@yiffit.net avatar

Good idea! And yes, the idea is to edit it or strike things through as they get done.

Thank you! I just upgraded the lemmy version. I thought it would be difficult but it was more painless than I thought.

I’d say to start with CF tunnels unless you need non-web based applications. Cloudflare tunnels require you to have a domain, though.

It has the added benefit that you have network monitoring, logging and some filtering for security that they do on top and you get to manage everything from their web interface.

be warned that the first time can be a bit confusing, but since it’s done using their web interface it’s easier than if you have a problem making wireguard work.

  1. Create a tunnel with a public hostname that will be the url to access that service. During the creation of the hostname specify you want it protected by L7 application firewall.
  2. Create a new self-hosted application in cloudflare application section and for starters use the default login email and in rules specify the list of emails that are allowed to login

you should now be able to access your application from anywhere.

Alternatively, if you have a DNS server in your home network you can add a private IP range to your tunnel. Let’s say 192.168.0.0/24. Then when you connect with their pseudo-VPN (cloudflare warp or cloudflare ONE) you can directly use your home network’s ip address from that device. If you tell your device to use a local DNS server that resolves your internal services, you’ll be able to connect to them that way.

AI images are not allowed in our communities. Apologies. Please stop or I’ll have to give you a temp ban. I’ll leave this up for a while so that you can see this message.

Thank you!

Sorry! It now posted. Initially it wouldn’t post if it couldn’t verify an image’s artist on e621, but I now have it say a message that it could have linked to the commissioner instead.

If the image has an e6 version, it’ll use that to verify the actual artist.

Wander,
@Wander@yiffit.net avatar

Generally speaking it doesn’t matter if the artist is the uploader or not, because it’ll take the e6 artist tag. But, it’s true that especially recent images are not on e6. I’ve edited the bot so that it will always post results if it finds a furaffinity, Weasly or twitter link but state that it might be the comissioner’s account instead.

I think you might mean Kenket or Blackteagan, but blotch?
