Questions about Lemmy
Problem with viewing context of a comment
When I view replies in my inbox and click "view context" I receive a 404. Is that normal?

What's with the catbox cookie & heli sounds?
I open the website today and it starts blaring helicopter sounds. refreshed a few times. same result. ended when i unclicked the cookie. what's that about?

Trouble logging in on mobile?
Hopefully this is the right place to put this. I've been browsing Lemmy through the Remmel app, but when I try to log in it doesn't ever accept my credentials. Does anyone have a fix for this? Thanks in advance!

FetchError when browsing lemmygrad
`404: FetchError: invalid json response body at http://lemmy:8536/api/v3/site` As far as I can tell, it happens when I open multiple links in new tabs (eg. when I go to the Communities page and try to open multiple communities in a row). Maybe an overly-aggressive anti-bot mechanism? I've only got this error on this instance, though the only other instance I frequent is The only way I've found to temporarily get rid of it is to restart the browser. Any way I can fix this besides changing my browsing habits? :)

Lemmygrad video compatibility
I was looking to post a video for memes but was given an error. Is lemmygrad video compatible? If not, will it be in the future?

Logging in to other instances?
My understanding is that accounts transfer across instances without having to sign up again. I was trying to check out the main instance but couldn't figure it out, yet I saw some usernames in the format [name] so it seems possible somehow? Can someone explain this to me?

Lemmygrad Extremely slow respond
I barely got this to work, sometimes it would take half an hours to load. I often get error like 504, 502, 404. Can someone help me?

How do I make a sever pic look like a normal circle?
I tried uploading a picture to [!]( however though when i upload a flag it has a weird oval shape. This happened for different files I chose too

Can any of you please give me resources on Pol Pot (his backing by the CIA and US, his murder of communists, his anti-Marxism, etc.)
I'm trying to show someone that Pol Pot was a bad person as soon as possible. He doesn't know much about him. Just don't want him to get swept up in anything that he'll regret.

Economic Manuscripts: Capital Vol. I - Chapter Four (Help me understand this completely)
So, what's the complete difference between C-M-C and M-C-M? I'm just trying to make sure that I understood everything that I read in that chapter. On another note, Marx makes a lot of stunning observations in that chapter.

So... what's the deal with Mastodon? Why is it becoming so popular? And should I make an account?
Title kinda says all, but Mastodon looks interesting to me... except I don't know whether I should get one. I keep hearing that it's "Twitter for saner people." I guess? I'm fine with Twitter, even if it's a bit hectic at times. But all the same: I'm just curious about the hype surrounding Mastodon.

Question: Is there such a thing as a "proletarian novel?" What do you call Soviet fiction in general? What genre were Soviet writers writing about besides just the usual monikers such as "sci-fi"?
I'm deeply curious about this. I heard that fiction with communist messaging is called a "proletarian novel" but I'm honestly not sure. Maybe I can find something on ProlesWiki about this? I'm trying to wrap up the current session of university as it is so I'll pay a visit there some other time. Anyone else interested in this? I knew a writer friend that told me that Soviet fiction was basically its own genre and wouldn't just be, or shouldn't just be, called "magical realism" or "science fiction." Anyone else know more about this?

How Come I Can't Save Posts Anymore?
On posts there used to be a little star button to save posts, when you clicked on it it became yellow/gold. When you saved the posts you could look at them later by going on your profile and looking through saved posts, this was pretty useful when I wanted to look back at a post that linked to a bunch of articles or book so I can remember what articles or books they linked to and I didn't have to look around the whole of Lemmy to find it again. The problem is now the star is gone and I can't save posts anymore and all my saved posts in the saved posts tab are gone. Now it only shows me my own posts.

How to add moderator to a community?
My apologies, I don't understand how to use moderation features whatsoever. I'm trying to add a mod to the one community I created (/c/games). Thanks for your help!

Questions about the Fediverse and Federation?
I am pretty new to lemmy and I have a very basic understanding of the fediverse. My understanding is that when lemmy gets federated the account that I made for this instance will able to used on other instances and other sites that are in the fediverse. So on that note when do you guys think federation is gonna be implemented?

How to remove a moderator of a subcommie?
I was recently made a moderator of [!](/c/xiisfinished) in order to replace the comrade who appointed me. How?

View of subscribed topics
Is there a view where you can navigate to the sub-lemmies (what are those called btw?) that you are subscribed to instead of just finding them in the huge list? Also is there a way to get a feed of all the posts in subs you're subscribed to like the Reddit home page? Also, is there like an r/all? There's far to many subs right now and it's hard to find what's being posted.

Comrades, I noticed today that there was a forum at It seems this was the predecessor to our forum. In the screenshot attached, it seemed as though one user ( u/oriond ) was unaware of our forum as of 3 months ago. So **my question is whether everybody at is aware of our forum here**
