I just found the most amazing #puzzle game on @fdroidorg, its called #FlowIt and is very fun to play! 😃

The #game looks and feels very simple at first, but as you go through the levels you'll see the #puzzles getting more complex and interesting.

F-droid: https://f-droid.org/packages/com.bytehamster.flowitgame/

Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bytehamster.flowitgame

Source code: https://github.com/Flowit-Game/Flowit

They also seem to have a desktop version of the game but I haven't tried it out - https://github.com/Flowit-Game/flowit-vita

Screenshot of the game. There are lots of little boxes colored Yellow, Grey, Red, and Green. Most of the boxes are empty and only has color on its border, except a few special ones which has an arrow or circle on it.
A screenshot of the game where they explain how it works. The title at the top reads "How to play Flow it" and there is a simple diagram explaining the basic concept of the game. Below the diagram it reads "Fill all boxes with the color of their border".
Screenshot of a finished game, in front of you is a text that reads "Level complete".
Screenshot of the game showing a more complex level. This time it has many special boxes containing an arrow, circle, bomb or an arrow combined with a little rotate symbol on it.

How petrol pumps know when to turn themselves off

Some of these everyday things in our life are #designed in extremely clever ways that simply #learning how it works can blow your mind. This #video is an example of that, and it #explains all of the #mechanisms involved in such a simple and intuitive way that anyone could understand it. Definitely one of the best #explainer #videos I've seen.

Stable Linux Distros Aren't Inherently Stable

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3RexmfUEr

I agree with the comments below this video, there is no need to use the word stable and cause confusion among each other. Arch is a rolling release distro while Debian is a static release distro, and both are pretty reliable enough for daily usage. Alpha software is usually rolling and unreliable.

The social impacts of moderation & censorship


This entry was edited (4 months ago)

Dr. Percy reshared this.

Nitter, Invidous and the like, cannot be blamed for fetching remote content from twittter or Youtube. So if someone posts child porn, or god forbid GUNS on twitter or youtube, and others access it via our nitter/invidious instances, it is not even legal in our stupid world of stupid laws, to accuse me. It is simply proxying and the content from youtube/twitter is not even on my server. Perhaps federated networks should do that if possible. It is already doing something similar in the sense that I, as admin, can choose to remove remote cached content daily or immediately. You can still connect to others, but the content needs to be fetched every time you "poke" at them or something like that...

This is the saner way of doing it. Not the butcher way please! Cut and slice! But the librarian way. Sit down and come up with a solution that is future-proof and does not impede people's ability to connect with others.
(mind if I don't reply all at once? it may become quite long otherwise, and some subtopics make sense to be split)
different people want to block different types of stuff than others.
What I meant with unfair moderation is when the same content is treated differently according to who wrote it. For example, see this comment on a Lemmy drama. The first user seemed to benefit from a laxist treatment because they shared the admins' political opinion, hence the accusations of unfair moderation. (for the record, that first person ended up getting a 5-days ban) Please, anyone reading this, let us not turn this about a discussion of whether or not there was a double standard, I only meant to say that this kind of double standards may exist, and not every dispute on moderation concerns the two types mentioned in the OP
@Liwott
What I meant with unfair moderation is when the same content is treated differently according to who wrote it.
Okay I understand what you mean now. So your point was that moderators could treat people differently based on their political believes, religion, race, etc. This might happen sometimes, as moderators are humans too, and well, humans can be biased. For example, an admin might be more reluctant to block an instance if they have close friends on it compared to other instances where they don't know anyone (so they block it without much thought). I think this could be seen as one more reason why users choosing for themselves is better than letting admins handle everything.
Some rules are really rules, others are what the ignorant call upon when they've reached the end of their short lived character.


How to fix moderation on the fediverse

@Émilie Fecteau
And you also made some good points earlier, and that's what initially gave me the idea to write that post.
@Émilie Fecteau
If my friend is on a poorly moderated instance, I want to get them off of that instance, not make an exception to my block just for them.
If you want to pressure your friends into leaving (what you define as) bad instances, you still can decide to not unblock them, except you have to take responsibility for that.
there is no pressure on admins to actually moderate their instances
There is still actually the pressure related to discoverability. There is also the question of what happens to boosts.

I just ran this command:

Its so satisfying to block out all the bad stuff 😇

@tblock, do I have to manually run this command to update my filter rules? Or does it do that automatically in the background?

Thank you for that info 🙂

I noticed that after I ran that command the redirection changed from 127.0.1.1 to 0.0.0.0 which is much better.

Rokosun reshared this.

you're welcome 😀 yes 0.0.0.0 is now the default blocking address, because it is way faster and it doesn't interfere with a local web server

So last night I posted a bunch of links to https://jnktn.tv, and for those who's wondering, no its not a scam or anything! lol 😅

So it was a livestream from @jnktn_tv, and they use the free and open source platform @owncast for all of their streaming 😉

And this time it was @gabek doing the show, the music was so cool, and the set and everything was lit, a freaking live party!

Content warning: My day

@frankie I've read some short stories by O.Henry, they're nice! 😀

*The Gift of the Magi*, by O.Henry is comfy!
Question:
If a Mastodon post has a content warning, will replying to that from a Friendica account remove the CW? 🤔

I've seen this happen multiple times! :friendica:

#Friendica
@frankie When I was replying to you it had the content warning, I manually removed it because we were not talking about your day anymore, lol 😄
I forgot what the default setting in Friendica was, but they allow the user to set if they want to apply CWs for replies or not, and I've enabled it on my account 😀

Dr. Percy reshared this.

chit!
Okie! 😅
@Émilie Mastodon Edition @frankie Yes Em, content warnings in Friendica are called abstracts and they're part of the BBCode markup language that Friendica use.

Is it annoying for you when I boost my old posts? Also how about when I boost other posts from fedi?

  • Its annoying when you boost your own posts (17%, 3 votes)
  • Its annoying 'cause you boost a lot of other posts (0%, 0 votes)
  • Keep boosting, I like it (23%, 4 votes)
  • I don't really care (58%, 10 votes)
17 voters. Poll end: 4 months ago

Rokosun reshared this.

Related to the above poll, I would also like to know how many of you have hidden by boosts from your timeline.

For those who don't know, yes its a feature on mastodon, you can hide someone's boosts if you want, more info here - https://mstdn.social/@feditips/105283831945143961

  • I have hidden your boots for some time now (0%, 0 votes)
  • Didn't know I could do that, I'll hide your boosts (40%, 4 votes)
  • No, I don't wanna hide your boosts (60%, 6 votes)
10 voters. Poll end: 4 months ago

Oh, these poll results are quite interesting..... 😁

So I actually expected more people will say its annoying when I boost other posts, because that's what I do most often. But apparantly not a single person voted for that, lol 😄

And 17% votes said its annoying when I boost my own posts. I don't think I boost a lot my old posts, but I do boost my replies sometimes, so I wonder if this is what they meant 🤔

1/3
So because of the way mastodon works, it'll only show you a reply on your timeline if you're following both the person who replied and the one they replied to, unless they boosted it, then you'll see that reply as a boost. This is different for platforms like Friendica where by default they'll show you all of the replies of people you follow, this behavior can be changed in settings though.

2/3
And looking at the 2nd poll it shows that not many people were aware of this feature in mastodon that allows you to hide someone's boosts. Its great that mastodon gives people this option, because it means if someone don't like my boosts they can just hide it themselves 😁

One thing to note here is that if you hide someone's boosts then it'll hide all of their boosts, including when they boost their own posts or other's, so be aware of that.

3/3
I have all boosts turned off. I'm more interested in what people have to say directly in their timeline.
