Searching only in one community does not work for me
The GUI of the search page indicates that it is possible too search only in one special community. When I select for example this community I get search results from many other communities. Any hints?

Facebook, Google - all of GAFAM is built on Open Source. GAFAM ist clever.

Lemmy auf der FrOSCon
Gestern in meinem Talk habe ich auch kurz Lemmy erwähnt. Ich hoffe, dass es ein wenig hilft.

Keyboard navigation in Lemmy
Is it possible to navigate through Lemmy with keyboard shortcuts? I appreciate the vim-like shortbuts in Mastodon.

A knife in the back of small and medium enterprises that offer hosting services. They cannot comply with this. The EU fosters GAFAM.

Mail was decentralized. Then came Gmail. Code alone ist not the solution. We need cooperative operations.

I think the biggest advantage is also the biggest showstopper as people have to learn, that Briar does not always delivers messages in at once in some milliseconds. As the article says the messages are delivered to the next Briar node and stored until in can be handed forward. Even with internet access delivery can last several minutes. And I don’t know how well Briars works if only few people use it.

We, a hosting cooperative in Germany, mentioned Lemmy in a book about free software that we published two weeks before. It is in German and targets clubs, non-profits, foundations and cooperatives. It’s free to download. https://www.hostsharing.net/publikationen/vereinshandbuch/

I really like your idea of promoting Lemmy by providing a limited free hosting offer. It gives people the chance to find sustainable funding.

In the book mentioned above we recommended Lemmy as a forum solution. Many organisations like clubs are looking for something like discourse or flarum to replace a mailing list for discussions or a community help desk. If an organisation uses Lemmy for inhouse needs giving accounts to all members the instance is funded by the organisation – and thanks to federation the users can join communities elsewhere too.

This is the organisational approach to sustainable Lemmy instances.

If there is no organisation that pays the bills, I have to look for funding elsewhere, as users won’t pay. I have to pass the hat around. But this is not sustainable at all.

Or I could go the usual internet way using ads to fund the instance. Is there a function in Lemmy that could be used as an advertising tool? A broadcast message by the administrator that is published to all accounts. Can instance administrators pin messages in communities? Or can administrators promote messages so that they get higher ranks?

I think of a Lemmy instance for a hobby targeting a community of consumers and producers where the producers are willing to pay for advertised postings.

hostsharing.net is the only hosting coop in Germany. But the website is German only, sorry.

Book a vm in a cooperative where you control the board as a member of the cooperative. In Germany there is Hostsharing, a cooperative founded in 2000 dedicated to green hosting, open source, privacy and security.

Is there a share to lemmy extension for any browser?
Hi all, currently I share links to my self hosted shaarli instance but I guess that I would like to post some links also to lemmy. Is there already a share to lemmy extension for browsers?

I would recommend https://cryptpad.fr/. All files are encrypted locally. You don’t need a database.

Not about cooperatives but maybe about the way to run them: I would recommend the book “We the people” about sociocracy.

The national agency for the digitalisation of the healthcare system in Germany (gematik) has selected Matrix as the open standard on which to base all its interoperable instant messaging standard - the TI-Messenger. gematik has released a [concept paper](https://fachportal.gematik.de/anwendungen/ti-messenger) that explains the initiative in full.
