    A place to share alternatives to popular online services that can be self-hosted without giving up privacy or locking you into a service you don't control.

    Rules:

    1. Be civil: we're here to support and learn from one another. Insults won't be tolerated. Flame wars are frowned upon.

    2. No spam posting.

    3. Posts have to be centered around self-hosting. There are other communities for discussing hardware or home computing. If it's not obvious why your post topic revolves around selfhosting, please include details to make it clear.

    4. Don't duplicate the full text of your blog or github here. Just post the link for folks to click.

    5. Submission headline should match the article title (don’t cherry-pick information from the title to fit your agenda).

    6. No trolling.

    A community for discussing events around the World

    Rules:

    • Rule 1: posts have the following requirements:

      • Post news articles only
      • Video links are NOT articles and will be removed.
      • Title must match the article headline
      • Not United States Internal News
      • Recent (Past 30 Days)
      • Screenshots/links to other social media sites (Twitter/X/Facebook/Youtube/reddit, etc.) are explicitly forbidden, as are link shorteners.
    • Rule 2: Do not copy the entire article into your post. The key points in 1-2 paragraphs is allowed (even encouraged!), but large segments of articles posted in the body will result in the post being removed. If you have to stop and think "Is this fair use?", it probably isn't. Archive links, especially the ones created on link submission, are absolutely allowed but those that avoid paywalls are not.

    • Rule 3: Opinions articles, or Articles based on misinformation/propaganda may be removed. Sources that have a Low or Very Low factual reporting rating or MBFC Credibility Rating may be removed.

    • Rule 4: Posts or comments that are homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, anti-religious, or ableist will be removed. “Ironic” prejudice is just prejudiced.

    • Posts and comments must abide by the lemmy.world terms of service UPDATED AS OF 10/19

    • Rule 5: Keep it civil. It's OK to say the subject of an article is behaving like a (pejorative, pejorative). It's NOT OK to say another USER is (pejorative). Strong language is fine, just not directed at other members. Engage in good-faith and with respect!

    • Rule 6: Memes, spam, other low effort posting, reposts, misinformation, advocating violence, off-topic, trolling, offensive, regarding the moderators or meta in content may be removed at any time.

    • Rule 7: We didn't USED to need a rule about how many posts one could make in a day, then someone posted NINETEEN articles in a single day. Not comments, FULL ARTICLES. If you're posting more than say, 10 or so, consider going outside and touching grass. We reserve the right to limit over-posting so a single user does not dominate the front page.

    We ask that the users report any comment or post that violate the rules, to use critical thinking when reading, posting or commenting. Users that post off-topic spam, advocate violence, have multiple comments or posts removed, weaponize reports or violate the code of conduct will be banned.

    All posts and comments will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. This means that some content that violates the rules may be allowed, while other content that does not violate the rules may be removed. The moderators retain the right to remove any content and ban users.

    People conforming to the letter, but not the spirit, of a request. For now, this includes text posts, images, videos and links. Please ensure that the “malicious compliance” aspect is apparent - if you’re making a text post, be sure to explain this part; if it’s an image/video/link, use the “Body” field to elaborate.

    A place to post new communities all over Lemmy for discovery and promotion.

    Rules

    The rules may be more established as time goes on, but it's important to have a foundation to work on.

    1. Follow the rules of Lemmy.world - These rules are the same as Mastodon.world's rules, which can be found here.

    2. Include a community title and description in your post title. - A following example of this would be New Communities - A place to post new communities all over Lemmy for discovery and promotion.

    3. Follow the formatting. - The formatting as included below is important for people getting universal links across Lemmy as easily as possible.

    Formatting

    Please include this following format in your post:

    [link text](/c/[email protected])

    This provides a link that should work across instances, but in some cases it won't

    You should also include either:

    [email protected]

    or instance.com/c/community

    FAQ:

    Q: Why do I get a 404?

    A: At least one user in an instance needs to search for a community before it gets fetched. Searching for the community will bring it into the instance and it will fetch a few of the most recent posts without comments. If a user is subscribed to a community, then all of the future posts and interactions are now in-sync.

    Q: When I try to create a post, the circle just spins forever. Why is that?

    A: This is a current known issue with large communities. Sometimes it does get posted, but just continues spinning, but sometimes it doesn't get posted and continues spinning. If it doesn't actually get posted, the best thing to do is try later. However, only some people seem to be having this problem at the moment.

    This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

    This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

    Just post some stuff and don't spam.
