By control, I mean I can back up my data and ensure my comments, subscribed communities, messages, etc are all available to me no matter what, I don’t have to rely on some external third-party managing it for me.
Yep that worked, thanks!
I wanna self-host my own instance so I have more control over my data.
Sounds like you need to sub to more communities!
Ooh, that’s a really good idea, I need a federation helper bot/account when I start self-hosting a Lemmy instance!
Weird, it doesn’t seem to have a subscribe button when I go to it: https://i.imgur.com/vws3HXX.png
I run into all kinds of oddities with Lemmy.
Also I got a JSON parse error when trying to write this comment here too lol
I already linked it elsewhere, but it’s starting to look more and more true: https://www.gnu.org/proprietary/malware-microsoft.en.html

It is? TIL, that’s pretty interesting.
Awesome, that was just as straightforward as I was hoping it was, thanks! I am more familiar with MySQL as I haven’t used Postgres a ton but SQL is SQL after all lol
Could you share the cron/script you use to do this? I’m interested in hosting my own Lemmy at some point, and having a script for that cleanup would be hugely helpful for me.
If you want to run a seedbox behind a VPN (like I do) then you’d want to be connectable, so a VPN with portforwarding would be crucial. I run my own OpenVPN server on a public VPS (so a dedicated IP instead of shared IP) but I only use private trackers so a dedicated IP is fine and also technically required, so my local seedbox whitebox server connects to my OpenVPN server as an OpenVPN client, and tunnels all traffic over the VPN with an iptables prerouting rule on my public VPS for the traffic on my qbtorrent-nox inbound port to reach my local server.
This way I can run whatever hardware I want in my seedbox and have full control over the hardware while also masking my home IP.
The sad part is reddit actually used to be open-source. They’ve become what they wanted to destroy. Sad times.
Somehow I feel like they won’t care, those reports probably go directly into the bin.
They are trying to squeeze as much money out of their platforms as possible, regardless of the fact that it’s at the expense of users and will downgrade users experiences.
I’m not sure, I really think it might be a bug.
Signed up to that right away, hell yeah!
I think it’s important to care about the fact that Reddit and especially it’s users are being squeezed dry by a profit-hungry CEO with a net worth of already more than 10 million. Reddit is becoming bastardized and that’s not a good thing, we should be talking about that and protesting that, and realistically just moving away from that.
Yep, I end up having to specify the language as English in the dropdown otherwise I sometimes get language not allowed.
They don’t even try hiding it, they are blatant and egregious about it. They are gonna just eng up chasing all their users away.
Yep, I’ve already noticed a new bug where it will say “language not allowed” unless I manually specify English from the dropdown.
Yep. I think more people will be realize when they actually see the damage and start switching.
To me, finding out about new releases is the most interesting part since I already know basically as much as I’d need to about this sort of stuff.
Also (in theory) you can stick a VPN in front of it to hide your home IP to prevent DDoS attacks etc.
To some extent, yeah. It feels like a more tight-nit community here.
That’s why it kind of surprises me that https://lemmy.dbzer0.com/c/piracy is packed but https://lemmy.dbzer0.com/c/crackwatch is basically a ghost town.
I like Lemmy. Version 0.18.0 fixed some annoying bugs I had so I’m quite happy about that, and newer versions will fix even more bugs.
I still want to be able to click on a message to mark it as read without having to click specifically the checkmark.
It’s pretty shitty how those loud people have ruined something that used to be awesome.
Looking forward to it! Let us know when you do.
It’s not going to get addressed because it can’t be, other than running your own Lemmy instance and just federating with everyone, until the main instances turn off blocklists and instead use allowlists.
How do you even dowvnote on Lemmy? I don’t see an option for it, only on kbin.
I’m not sure. I think I want to stay here.
I have a cottage, so I rsync to my computer there, and I also have a computer and Synology NAS there for further backups. If I end up selling the cottage though… I’m not sure lol. I don’t really have anything too too irreplaceable honestly outside of stuff I already backup to multiple cloud backups too.
Interesting, that’s exactly what I did. I am renting a VPS and am running my own OpenVPN server on that, and then my OpenVPN client connects to that VPN, and the OpenVPN server forwards traffic for specific ports to my OpenVPN client using iptables prerouting DNAT rules.
Yes, but you have to keep in mind part of the point of the VPN is so that it’s not running on your home network and exposing your home IP. Having an RPI or laptop running OpenVPN server from your home isn’t going to help you in terms of privacy when you’re just exposing your home IP. Also, running your own VPN means you will have a dedicated IP which will be tied to you versus running a commercial VPN which would have shared IPs (but likely wouldn’t offer port-forwarding so it would be worthless for seedboxes).
What I do on mine is rent a cheap VPS with unlimited bandwidth, I run OpenVPN server on that VPS using Nyr’s openvpn-install script and then on my local seedbox server I connect to my OpenVPN server. I have qbittorrent-nox listening on the tun0 interface on my local seedbox, and then on my OpenVPN server VPS I have an iptables prerouting rule to route traffic from the inbound torrent port to my local seedbox server.
It works very well for me, even though I only use private trackers so it’s overkill in my case.
For a private tracker no, for public trackers it depends on your country. Some countries the worst you might get is an email or letter in the mail, other countries you will be sued. I even use a VPN for private trackers, let alone public trackers.
I would recommend using a VPN.

I also only seed on private trackers, since I don’t use public trackers.
It’s a very nice setup, I’d recommend it. I might do a full write-up some time about it.
It’s not like Spez is only some miniscule middle manager for reddit. He absolutely has a say in how things will go. He has shown who he really is.
True, no point having one yacht, better to have three yachts.
Depending on the person, it’s not acceptable at any age. However, why would you want to be with someone so judgmental? It’s easy to be accepting of hobbies other than your own if you’re a decent person. After all, it’s not like you would have all of your hobbies in common with your significant other, right?
