Really liking this update a lot, the community jump feature is great! Been using it so much I’ve noticed myself tapping the screen at the top now as a muscle memory haha! Two quick notes on it, it might make sense to have a small UI element (like a pulldown arrow) to show future users that it’s there and would it be possible to enable it when reading posts as well as browsing communities?

Also, I think it’s awesome that you’re trying to avoid subscriptions. Might be worth a small blurb about that along with a “donate if you can but don’t worry if you can’t” type of thing somewhere in the app and we’ll help you keep the server going :) Even just on the “About” page in the settings, it was the first place I looked for it.

Some offer very low prices, HostHatch is one example. I’ve been using RamNode for years and while they’re a little more average for pricing, I’ve had no issues. Never used HostHatch, so maybe someone who has used it can comment on the quality of service.

Would love to see some mod tools added to the app. Happy to help test and provide feedback on them if needed.

No, it won’t work if it’s deployed wrong. Is this a shared host or a VPS service? If it’s a shared host and you’re just clicking a button to deploy a software package, it that host’s job to make that button work right.

That sounds like it’s a commercial service. They should have a support option you can ask. It sounds like their deployment scripts are broken. Ansible and Docker are the easiest ways to run Lemmy, I’m guessing these guy’s scripts are just grabbing the docker images and launching them for you.

You probably forgot this line: sudo chown -R 991:991 volumes/pictrs

No problem! There’s lots of great apps out there right now, really happy to see such an active community of developers!

Ah, didn’t realize that was a paid feature (already paid so I can’t see what is or isn’t paid).

I’m not a fan of web apps, they’re much slower than native. Arctic is completely free for all features, so that could be a better choice for someone wanting filters and a native experience. It’s still in TestFlight at the moment, link in sidebar for its community.

Arctic has separate filters for the post body and post title, which is really nice.

Avelon has keyword filtering and also supports instance blocking.

Both have been great!

Agreed, even the web UI is sorely lacking. A few ideas as places to get started:

  • Community Modlog available in client
  • Remove post / comment
  • Ban user (with checkbox to remove all posts)
  • Community search box (used to check duplicates and certain bad words) (also mod action should be able to be taken from search results)

More advanced options that would be awesome to have and would give features even the web UI is missing:

  • Thread nuking (recursive delete) as some threads devolve into totally toxic chat wars and I just want to remove a comment and all under it (the starting point could sometimes be a few replies in and not necessarily a top comment)
  • Search lists with regular expressions where I can one button run an advanced search list on a community I moderate with the matches highlighted within the comments or posts returned
  • Push notifications for reports
 

Would love to see some mod tools added to the app. Happy to help test and provide feedback on them if needed.

No worries, always get excited when I see someone mention Arch. Been running it so long, it’s always fun to run into others using it outside the Arch community

Love Arch Linux! Been running it for over a decade now.
