I don’t think they work at all on comments, although I don’t have hard evidence to confirm this. However, I believe there are “block lists” you can add to your websites robots.txt that work decently.

I’ve personally never had this issue (I’ve been a paid user for the last 2 years). Like another commenter said, as annoying as it is, it’s not a super urgent bug. It doesn’t break anything or affect the functionality so it will take longer to get a fix.

I remember seeing something on Reddit a while back (well before the API fiasco) that this was a bug. Hopefully that is the case here as well.

I’ve definitely seen more video content of people trying Linux or moving over completely after that announcement from MS.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 2 days ago

I think Lemmy plays a part in it but also all the stuff with MS recently (and people getting tired of it).

I think most Lemmy users use Linux

I was thinking about this earlier today. I’d love to do a Lemmy wide survey to see how true this is or to what extent.

I’m not sure if this is part of the “frequency illusion”, but I’ve noticed a lot more mainstream media talking about Linux as a viable alternative.

When I moved to Lemmy from Reddit (about a year ago) and wanted to look for the equivalent of r/Ireland here, I was met with about 5 or 6 different communities (spread across various instances). You couldn’t really call any of them active, occasionally someone would post a link to a news article but there was no engagement.

Things have improved since then but I definitely agree with your point.

r/ireland was great (as well as the regional subreddits from Ireland). There is an Irish community ([email protected])on Lemmy that I try to post to but there’s just not that much engagement at the moment, having said that, it has improved.

EDIT: added the community.

Hands down the best response!

Good to know, thank you!

I never thought of that. Thanks for the idea

I’ve been using their services for the last 2 years and have no complaints. I started on the free plan and have moved up to the family plan with custom domains and aliases for everything.

I’m using EndeavourOS with KDE.

The display is correctly oriented when logged in but it doesn’t rotate correctly when I’m logged out.

EDIT: corrected the post. This happens when logged out, locking the screen has it displayed correctly.

Although I mention parents specifically in the title, this isn’t just for parents to respond.

My wife and I are trying to raise our child to be bilingual (English and Portuguese). Currently we’re both speaking a bit of both to our child and when they eventually go to school we’ll speak more Portuguese as they’ll be exposed to English everywhere else.

Is this a good approach or is there something we can do better?

Do people still hand out physical business cards at events or is it all digital now?

i should have asked before ordering 50, lol

EDIT:

Thank you for all the replies, I’ve got the answer I need but I’ll add some more information just in case anyone wants to know.

  • I’m based in Europe and not Japan
  • I’m working as a videographer and trying to build a film company
  • I plan on doing more event coverage so I’ll bring them with to quickly hand out my contact details.
  • The card has the following: Busines name, my name, phone number, email, and website.
  • I had thought about adding my social media but couldn’t find a nice way to do it that matched the rest of the card.

EDIT 2: just now realised I didn’t complete the last sentence of the last bullet point

I know the title sounds a little strange but hear me out. The time tracking software I use for work doesn’t work on Wayland, unless I’m using Gnome as my DE. They have an extension that allows it to work in this case. Personally, I don’t enjoy Gnome on my desktop (I use it on my laptop). Is there a way for me to get the functionality that this extension provides on KDE so that I can use Wayland on my desktop as well?

Time tracking software:

EDIT: I have included more files in the codeberg repo. I hope this helps.

The title is a quote from Mastodon. I’ve always seen dislike towards snap so I was taken back when I saw this stance. The person who wrote this was referring to Tuxedo Laptops.

What are your thoughts on this?

Some clarification for those accusing me of not following the thread or being disingenuous.

Didn't bother to follow the thread?

https://mastodon.social/@popey/112593520847827981

I posted my question here before this particular response from the OP. I asked the question on Lemmy out of interest and wanting to get a wider perspective. I also engaged with the OP on the thread so that I can get their perspective on their stance.

TL;DR: Is there really a performance benefit to a gaming distro over a regular distro? Or is it more of a “this is the least work” to get setup?

——

I run EndeavourOS on my desktop and haven’t had any issues with performance. I just like playing with new things and learning from the experience.

I’ve seen loads of people recommending Bazzite as a gaming distro for various reasons. It’s gotten to the point that I installed it on a second SSD to do my own testing but I’d still like to see others perspective.

From my research, there doesn’t seem to be that much performance to be gained (generally speaking). I’ll be testing this on my own hardware but is this generally true?

I think a big draw (especially for new users) would be that these distros would require very minimal work to get up and running into a game.

I think the TL;DR at the top best describes my question. I’ve just been thinking about this and haven’t been sure how to express it in a clear manner for others to understand. Also, this video got me thinking more.

EDIT:

Glad to see that I’m not alone in my thinking. Biggest benefit of a “gaming distro” is the convenience of having everything setup and there is no real performance difference.

Context, I’ve got some web dev experience but it’s all self taught from enjoying it as a hobby. Personally, the design aspect is probably worse for me.

I’ve been toying with the idea of trying to do something with the Lemmy API (even if it’s never shared publicly) but I’ve seen a handful of people complain about the API, is it really that bad?

I’d probably use React if I did do something.

EDIT: This is a prototype design I came up with, I'll play around with the API and see what I can do. I think that it could be a fun project, thanks for all the help!

I've been going through updating all of my accounts (passwords, 2FA, etc.), and I've noticed that there are a lot of sites that don't offer any form of MFA.

I can understand smaller services that might not have the bandwidth, but surely larger organisations are able to get this setup?

Has anyone outside the EU/UK recieved a response from the right to object form? I've heard that people outside of the EU/UK aren't getting responses with their wishes being honoured.

After everything that has happened with Raivo over the last few days it’s reminded me that I need to go through my accounts with 2FA enabled.

However, how do others keep things organised? My main 2FA app is Proton Pass but I’ll be adding Ente Auth as a backup alongside my Yubikey. In the past I saved a copy of the QR codes when setting up 2FA but I’d occasionally forget to save new ones.

Does anyone have a good system for saving either the QR code or setup code (not actually sure what it’s called) for future use?

EDIT: the code I’m referring to is the initial secret code used to setup the 2FA

Final Edit: I’ve settled on saving the QR codes into a folder that is setup as a git repo.

I’m referring to the advertising/digital display. I thought of using man_made=advertising + advertising=* but not of the examples on the wiki seemed to match very well.

EDIT:

I feel like an idiot for missing this but I found advertising=screen (1) after posting this

EDIT 2: Fixed the examples link
