[Mod] What is your vision for asklemmy?
Hey! Back after a large break from lemmy and after returning to the community it seems it is more advice focused: `what is the best way to learn programming` vs story focused `what is a bad mistake when you started programming`. My job as a moderator is to serve the community best I can, so instead of changing the rules to recklessly to bar topics further without consent, I want to extend an invitation for *you*, the members of the community, to share what you want to see content wise from this community. **Examples:** > I like it as is! or > New rules ideas > - Only questions about cats are allowed > - Posts about dogs will result in being banned Thank you! Evan

Do you think anyone ultimately, fundamentally knows, or is everyone just pretending and fundamentally ignorant?
edit: didn't see rule 1, but anyway I expect answers to be open ended. Just give your thoughts

In an increasingly and undetectable AI inhabited Internet for surveillance capitalism, attention economy,control, do you think there’s still value in online social interactions? Authentically? How so?
We are social animals, many or most of us need social interaction for our well being, but also survival purposes taking into account the socioeconomic system and globalization. If we cannot have that interaction in real life, we try to find that in the virtual space. On that, there is increasingly use of AI for social interaction engagement online, most likely without our notice. Does that has any value for you as a social connection? Is it worth it using social media at all for social interaction (actually interaction with AI) at this point? Wouldn't it better to just throw away all these interaction at this point?

Are animals better than plants?
Animals are awesome! They can communicate and form social bonds, while plants are just, well, plants. Animals can move, hunt, and play, making them more dynamic and interesting than plants that just sit there. Sure, plants are cool and provide us with oxygen, but animals are just on another level. If you ask me, animals are definitely better than plants!

Does anyone know why nodeinfo’s localPosts value might go backwards?
Does anyone know why nodeinfo's localPosts value might go backwards? I've noticed it happen with both and but I haven't been tracking it for long so it might happen to others (and not just mastodon). It doesn't appear to be a field rollover. Also I don't know if it happens all at once or if it is incremental. I've just noticed a drop between two queries a number of hours apart.

Are chicken fish?
I am convinced that chickens do indeed qualify as fish. The similarities in their physical characteristics, culinary use, and cultural classifications cannot be ignored. For example, both chickens and fish are animals that lay eggs, have a streamlined body shape, and possess a swim bladder. Additionally, chickens are often prepared and consumed in similar ways to fish and have been historically classified as a type of fish in some cultures.

Old Instagram Alternative
Anyone remember that there used to be an alternative app to instagram that was called something like "I Heart Things" ? what even happened to it, im not able to find any record of it.

Reddit vs Lemmy?
Using Reddit for years , I had come to Lemmy. I would like to know the difference between Reddit vs Lemmy. Like, what features Lemmy has that Reddit don't? Does Lemmy have some features missing that already exist on Reddit? And finally: have you heard of Libreddit yet? It has LOTS of themes, unlike Reddit, including Dracula and others. If you'll please tell me how can I have Dracula theme in Lemmy, I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance, Sincerely, Yours, Expert Plus P.S. BTW, why Lemmy's UI isn't so look professional? I mean, it looks like Reddit's old UI, and as for me, **it's suck**, so can I have a better UI please? If so, how? Lemmy's lite version seems to be deprecated and i didn't find any Lemmy web apps that would be better for me. If you know one, please tell me it! Name it!

I used lemmur nearly every day, but since an upgrade it decided not to find and other lemmy sites anymore. Now I found out at that the project is stopped by the developers. Is there another lemmy app for android? It's a pity, I liked the app, nice interface and very small and fast.

Is a Jebora Update Planned?
I'm curious if anyone knows how things are looking for the app. Since the most recent update to Lemmy there's been no ability to read or send comments/messages. Is anyone else having this issue or is this just on my end? If I was more comfortable coding, I'd offer to help but I'd be a liability than anything. Yet, I'm wondering if utilizing something like or chatGPT (ideally open-assistant in the near future) could make app updates an easier on the team.
