Curious to know why you picked lemmy.ml for those subdomains instead of the “project official” joinlemmy.org :)
Kinda late to this, but yeah I use one very simple and undistracting background I found on simpledesktops.com:
It is a way to make some income out of an open-source project. If you want the convenience of their managed server, then you have to pay to access limitless orgs (the way to share secrets), otherwise you’re limited to just a 2-person org. The family pack is quite accessible imo, at $40/y for a 6-person org.
Your other solution is, like I mentioned before, host your own server. vaultwarden supports orgs, like you can see in their feature list: https://github.com/dani-garcia/vaultwarden/wiki
BitWarden is really great and a good example of a successful FLOSS project. I get the overall “companies just want to screw you up”, but one must not get completely blinded by it ;)
BitWarden,¹ it just works really really well everywhere. The app is pretty much the same on every platform (which is a good thing imo) and you also have a CLI in case you prefer (may also be useful in some sort of backup script, I suppose). I personally use the cloud service they provide, but you could very easily and cheaply get a vaultwarden² server up and running and be the total master of your passwords, using a $2.5/m VPS or something like that.
Edit: also, the premium Bitwarden plan doesn’t mean that at all, imo. The plan can be very useful if you really need those features (sidenote: I advise ever using the TOTP thing, that’s just putting all your eggs into one basket and defeating the purpose of 2FA), it’s very cheap ($10/y iirc) and you can always export all your data with the CLI, setup a server and import that data.
Yeah, onboarding is definitely a big problem with PeerTube and many other fediverse software.
You have PeerTube, which is the server and client software that allows you to upload, manage and view vídeos, à la YouTube, but whereas “traditional” platforms have just one big instance, the Fediverse platforms have multiple smaller instances that interconnect. You have your generic instances, but you also have more focused ones (specific topics like art, tech, or even for generic content related to a specific country/language). Unfortunately, the PeerTube network isn’t very rich and diverse yet, so restricting your search to very specific things may lead you no instances at all.
Hope this info helps! :3
PeerTube is recommended a lot in open-source circles. It is a video streaming platform that supports peer-to-peer distribution of content and is part of the (APub) Fediverse. The experience is very hit-or-miss though, and highly depends on which instance you pick. Running it yourself is not as trivial as running, say, Lemmy, so it’s not for everybody.
It is as complicated to register on another instance as it is to register on lemmy.ml. Furthermore, as another commenter pointed out, there’s no official instance for Lemmy, as the devs believe that hurts the whole points of federation (and I agree). They do, however, run an instance tuned to their preference, and since it was the first one, it attracted the most users.
I’m running my own instance and it is very easy and nice to use :)
Ireland is a western country, just not very anglophone (though it is more so than most other Europen countries, for example).
Like others have pointed out, if you read and write in English on the Internet, you’re most likely visiting anglophone platforms, thus it is natural to never get to know, let’s say, the Portuguese Internet “culture”, with all its popular websites and quirks. I’d say every country/language has something like this, with varying degrees of richness and popularity of course.
It is true, however, that the USA’s influence on the western Internet “space” is way more significant than any other country’s, which can be attributed to a myriad of reasons, like how they had a big role in its inception and how their economy has evolved to flourish the tech industry.
"Tabacaria"1 by Álvaro de Campos (a Fernando Pessoa heteronym). Here’s an English translation.
It’s regarded by many as one of the best poems by him, and it is also a favourite of mine. The original version conveys so much in a brilliant flow of words, which, unfortunately, gets a somewhat lost with translations.

That isn’t true. BitWarden is a very good password manager. Great apps on all platforms (even terminal) with perfect sync.
I’d you don’t trust the main BitWarden.com server, then you can run the official server, or the lighter and community recommended vaultwarden server. It’s tiny, easy to deploy and effective.
Dunno, but you can take a look at instances.joinpeertube.org and sort by the metric you find most relevant
Yeah, same. I even run lemmy.pt, but I mostly read. I’ve been trying to correct that, though.
I don’t remember exactly. But i like to search for “alternatives to x” in my search for free software because it leads to that website “alternativeto.net” which has a filter for “opensource” which usually means free software for them, so my guess is one day i decided to search for alternatives to reddit that way and i was so excited about it that i made a lemmy account soon after
This was pretty much my experience, though I also don’t recall it exactly.
I remember making my account, checking a couple of things and then forgetting about it for some months, then I searched for alternatives again (I do this from time to time to see how the “ecosystem” is evolving) and it rekindled my activity. Soon enough I started contributing to the project with translations, suggestions and even a bit of code :)
Wonderful to see good movements forward in the spec!
