If you don’t mind, I delete this post again. This is not a community for such tests, there may be a Lemmy-related one that’s better suited.

Adding reference to HN submission of this article. Discussion thus far has 233 comments.

One thing I don’t get. Among the gazilion “Oh, it is sooo easy to do this better” complainers are countless developers and designers. This whole Mastodon thing is Free Software, where countless people spent some of their free time and energy to give you what there is today. Complainer devs and UX folks, are your PR’s getting rejected?

There’s no responsibility at all. There’s also full freedom to complain however you wish. If you do that on someone’s free work with which they try to help others, it just doesn’t look very good on you. That’s all.

Oh, that kind is good. Constructive feedback is very valuable. But the fediverse is full of people dropping derogatory sarcastic comments or even reacting in rage, that aren’t helpful in the slightest. I should’ve made that clearer in my first comment.

That second comment by goplayoutside says it well: "Maybe the modest technical hurdles are a feature, not a bug."

I think it is a feature, and the same is true for Mastodon and the Fediverse as a whole, imho.

The reason for the comment count being off has been found. In Settings you need to have 'Undetermined' in your language selection, or any comment where language wasn't specified becomes invisible (incl. old comments before language was a property on posts).

From Splinterverse to resilient GrassrootsFedi dev community: The time is now! (socialhub.activitypub.rocks)

Fediverse is going mainstream fast. And it is going to be a corporate hellhole if the grassroots initiatives that drove it to its current success are losing their grip on evolution in proper direction: Humane tech that is to the benefit of the people andd society, free culture thriving....

Oh for sure it would benefit a lot. A migration to Lemmy has come up in the past.. though it would mean losing a ton of community/forum management features. But there's movement towards federation of SocialHub, with The Pavilion who wrote an ActivityPub plugin. It is enabled on the SocialHub and 2 categories are currently federating. The plugin will be developed further, and feedback is being collected. See:

Two more forum softwares are adding federation support: Flarum and nodeBB

Current functionality of the plugin is still rather limited. The following 2 categories federate:

But right now that only creates a toot on a new topic creation, and replies from the fediverse aren't becoming replies in the forum. Hellekin has experimented with it, and SocialHub is open to beta-test.

Fully agree. Those doing Groups need to be continuously reminded about this compatibility. Tendency to "wheel reinvention" is high and co-creation is also not front and center in thinking with implementers, unfortunately. There's a Groups FEP created by Lemmy dev. I nudged Flarum, nodeBB and Discourse folks to come together. On SocialHub @trwnh gave some great insights. I hope more FEP's will be proposed, so that interop guarantees can be higher.

Dating-like apps come up in fedi discussions quite often. They have interesting aspects, for instance where obviously privacy is a big concern and where current generation of federated apps aren’t adequate for dating. And how do communities / instances establish their trustworthiness? There are kinds of ‘dating’ were the requirements can be less severe. Like “Meet new Friends” kind of services where e.g. you seek folks for collaborative gameplay in some MMORPG or something.
