I guess I joined just after the outbreak began

Oh my god I love them. Will set one as a banner soon. Are these AI, out of curiosity?

This is not content that we as a team have bandwidth to moderate, as comments evidenced

Most professional developers aren’t either. Many companies employ people and/or deploy software to detect license violations

they’d still call the cops if you wanna buy stuff for a million.

On what grounds could the cops make an arrest?

It’s not recommended. The tail at the back protruding upwards isn’t great for aerodynamics, you’d need to modify the automobile to have a flipped tail. Additionally, the bright colour makes it hard to blend in once you reach the interstate.

That being said, almost every car can outrun the police. They are very slow.



Sure, I suppose I’m like this too, and hunting down and fixing this stuff brings me the most satisfaction. Highly recommended to learn to program :)))

Have not conversed with the rest of the team, but, personally, I’m not opposed persay to AI, but would certainly put much higher value on hand made banners – I feel like AI lacks creativity, style? If that makes sense, but also If someone can make a decent banner with it I’m not opposed. Size wise, I’d probably shoot for something like 1000x500, though of I can downscale stuff as needed. 2:1-3:2 ish, other communities have banners to see (two ones I’ve quickly found is !green@lemmy.ml and !mechanicalkeyboards@lemmy.ml)

Please report shitheads. We do not allow shitheads.

Instance admins can promote users to be moderators. Such is the case with lemmy.ml, where we have !community_requests@lemmy.ml. Future questions should be at !lemmy_support@lemmy.ml

Could you link your previous account?

and many (like me) don’t donate directly

But you pay for API keys?

Do you want to moderate asklemmy?
Hello! We've reached 15k members (afaik we're still the largest community on lemmy). It's a lot for only a couple people, though there is admin support. I'm looking for a couple people to join and help moderate. Ideally you: 1. Have a history of contributions to this community 2. Have been on lemmy for a reasonable* amount of time and do not plan to leave any time soon *Genuinely not sure what constitutes reasonable, I suppose it will be case-by-case. It's a little frightening to appoint someone who just came via the reddit migration, but I understand that 4/5 of this community are newish so it's fine. The main hope is that you'll stick around. Ideally I'll pick a few people out in the coming days. I'm also going to correspond with the admins before changes. Thanks

I can’t believe I had to add a rule just for this

No support here! [Please report support posts]
There's been an influx of content surrounding lemmy here. Some of it is open ended: - "What kinds of things from reddit would you like to see Lemmy avoid as the user base grows?" - "Lemmy, what do you call users of Lemmy?" And these are a-ok! There's also been a lot of questions like - "How do I block a user?" - "How do I join a community on a different instance" These aren't open ended (at least, relatively). They are objective based, and just need a resolution, rather than discussion. These sort of questions are more relevant to [!lemmy_support@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/lemmy_support). I know there's also questions like "What are you guys doing when there’s multiple communities for the same thing across instances?". I'm inclined to let those stay, there is lots of opportunity for discussion. It's a game of discretion from a moderation perspective, but I assume most can easily guess what is cold hard support. At least from me, moderation of support posts has been sporadic at best, despite the long standing rule. I will begin redirecting these questions to [!lemmy_support@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/lemmy_support), however I'm of course willing to listen to the community here if that's not what is wanted, as well as other feedback. edit: support posts will now be removed, not locked

Consider contributing to lemmy!
Hi everyone, welcome, ect... It might go without saying but lemmy is open source! The platform is written in rust and typescript (which is a big pro for me). I'm sure we all have our little gripes with the platform, and those are fixed with collective teamwork :) [These](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues?q=is:issue+is:open+label:%22good+first+issue%22) are "good first issues", [here](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/contributors/01-overview.html) is a contributing guide), and [here](https://matrix.to/#/#lemmydev:matrix.org) is a chat where developers coordinate. Let's make the best link aggregator!

Welcome everyone! Just as a PSA, here’s a cross instance community explorer: https://browse.feddit.de/

Do you hate raids?!
Hey all, if you notice any comments that clearly don't belong here please hit the report button! In the next few days I will be checking in every few hours to ensure this community is in tip top shape. I have also recruited two new mods.

[Mod] What is your vision for asklemmy?
Hey! Back after a large break from lemmy and after returning to the community it seems it is more advice focused: `what is the best way to learn programming` vs story focused `what is a bad mistake when you started programming`. My job as a moderator is to serve the community best I can, so instead of changing the rules to recklessly to bar topics further without consent, I want to extend an invitation for *you*, the members of the community, to share what you want to see content wise from this community. **Examples:** > I like it as is! or > New rules ideas > - Only questions about cats are allowed > - Posts about dogs will result in being banned Thank you!
