Ah, I see you’re a man of naked as well.


On lemmy I could not resist posting something since my brain thinks It’s thoughts are very important for others to hear.


Good communities
(I'm having a headache currently so, I hope you don't mind some garbly sentences.) As of writing, I've looked into the communities available on lemmy, most are pretty much dead but for a few reasons. I will not focus on that now, the objective I have for this is to explain how we could change that. --- As much as you want to do community work, I advice against making yourself in a position where you have to be active all the time/regularly. It's very, very easy to get burnt out this way. In a very much online community forcing yourself to do something is counter-productive. Plus you have better things to do. --- You can do this once in a while, improving things bit by bit, and let people enjoy, they will come and go. Every community has to have a wiki. An "About", "FAQ", "Examples of what to do in this community"/"What to write about" can help people give them a choice. Not to mention a "Rules" section would be great once the community is bustling with activities. Optionally you can add something like a matrix server, so within your community people can bond together and become friends. (Especially important for video game communities, to enable them to play games together) And then you can further upgrade the community with adding something specific to them. For an example if the community is about writing, perhaps you can setup an own plume/writefreely instance. If the community is a multiplayer mmo game like minetest or veloren, adding a game server would boost the activity up a notch. --- Lastly, not all communities are created equal, some are based around a conversation, asking for advice or help; Nothing much can be done for those stuff. However, for everything else it has potential. Before any social platform was popular it tried to attract as many users as possible in some way. I'm not an expert so I feel like we need to discuss about this more, since our lemmy is still pretty much an infant.

Hey Lemmy, what's your way of organizing life?
I'm still using an old fashioned paper and pencil.

Is fediverse safe, or should I use tor with it?
I can understand using tor on random websites, since you can't tell which is tracking you. With the fediverse you don't need any PII, only email which you can get by pretty easily. you probably give up your ip, which doesn't mean much when it comes down to it. However I'm no web expert, so tell me what I should know.

[Queston][Discussion] Is youtube accepetable for privacy?
It's 2021 and the virus situation hasn't ended when even some people speculated that thing is gonna end at x month. though it doesn't (f-word)ing matter much since I don't go outside my room much let alone actually walking around outside and touching grass like a real human being. other than that I've been staring at random objects like my blank blue wall, so; maybe It's fate or not. but It's about time I make some videos. become a ゆーつーばー ::: spoiler translation youtuber (A little microaggression, I absolutely love this word. it makes my mouth bubbly and my stomach feel like it has insects) ::: Yeah.. but, I have a ~little~ problem. youtube needs my phone number and in some cases- my id. I don't know their security nor privacy-policy but I never seen anyone get doxxed (tell me if I'm wrong) has dogshit rules and policies clouded in so much vagueness, they seem to strike users randomly in which, doesn't help the fact that they don't communicate to their creators. Positive thing about youtube is all the cool people live there, and everyone else. Peertube is an anomaly and is the shit. I love the yellow theme and also pretty effing customizable, though instance owners don't even theme 100% of the time, according to the bible that's probably sin. the features are pretty good, I love the fact that I can have multiple channels connected to one account, although... one thing about youtube that is good is you can *edit videos after you uploud it*, would probably save alot of problems like removing copyright stuff. Should I make a youtube account or like should I avoid it? tell me why/why not. for obvious and personal reasons, I don't want creepy people around stalking me, even a possibility of it happening.
