How would an instance admin ‘sticky’ or ‘pin’ a post to the top of an instance’s feed?
I believe that I remember this being an added option with the Lemmy 0.17.2 release. However, I'm unable to find this option.

Well, that’s a bug isn’t it? Now that I’ve set it back to undetermined everything works normally again.

Entire communities are empty and some post comments can’t be seen when I’m logged in as an admin.
When I'm logged out I can see everything as it's supposed to be. However, when I'm logged in as one of the admins of our instance, then there are entire communities that are empty and some post comments are not visible.

This doesn’t appear to be resolved. Many instances, including Beehaw, are still missing from the join a server page.

I just tested this and not only does it remove all content from the community but it removes the community itself.

Lemmy’s Join a server page is missing lots of instances
It's not just [Beehaw](https://beehaw.org) but several other instances are missing from the [Join a server page](https://join-lemmy.org/instances). Was this caused by the bot/crawler not being updated to handle the new Lemmy version?

How does the ‘purge community’ link function?
I'm assuming that this link is only available to instance admins? What, precisely, happens when this link is clicked?

I just found the typo in that file and fixed it. Site is back up and running! Thank you for your help!

I’ll see about getting you the docker-compose.yml file.

I’ve followed all of those instructions, making the necessary changes, and now I’m getting this error:

404: FetchError: request to http://lemmy:8536/api/v3/site? failed, reason: getaddrinfo EAI_AGAIN lemmy

Thanks for this. I had no idea these existed. I’ll have to read through and make changes.

[RESOLVED] Getting a 404 Fetch Error When Attempting to Upgrade to 0.17.0
I made the two version number changes to my docker-compose.yml file. Ran Docker Compose Down then Docker Compose Up -D. Visit https://beehaw.org and you'll see the error in your browser: > 404: FetchError: request to

Is there an app that includes most of the popular corners of the ‘Fediverse’?
I'm assuming, out of all the Activity-Pub connected 'Fediverse', there are a handful of instances that get the most activity. That being assumed, is there an app (mobile and otherwise) that, functionally, includes most of these instances? For example, is there an app that can seamlessly handle Mastodon, Lemmy, Friendica, Hubzilla, Peertube, etc?

I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life. That would be a waste of time and effort. I am, simply, providing suggestions.

Based on what I’m reading here I would suggest seeing either a psychologist or a psychiatrist. It’s quite possible that you could discover a way to deal with your problems without using prescription drugs.

I’m not sure where the general distrust is coming from in the medical field. My wife is a registered nurse and she cares about people. I studied health at the university level because I care about people. So many people dedicate their entire lives in order to help others and, yet some will turn to unfounded and ridiculous claims from snake oil con men and the general ignorant public?

Speaking with a doctor (or several in order to get several opinions) is the safest route. Please, do NOT take the advice of the users in this thread about health/wellness. My wife is a registered nurse and I have studied health at a university.

You mentioned:

…burnout and bad thoughts.

This is an indicator that there is an underlying problem going on here that would be better addressed by professional counselors and/or doctors.

Many people have dedicated their entire lives in order to help people like you. Please, reach out to them.

I’m eagerly anticipating this feature. Fantastic work!

Fediverse and ActivityPub. What are all the platforms that interconnect with each other?
My understanding is that Mastodon, Pleroma and Lemmy can connect with each other using ActivityPub. Are there other platforms that share this same interconnection?

Godot is great for game development AFAIK. However, my son wants to use the software for more than just gaming. It’s something that we’d consider and thank you for responding.

EDIT: My son just told me that he would use said software primarily for gaming. So, you may have just given us the solution with the Godot recommendation. Thanks again!

Questions regarding Unity, Windows and gaming
My two sons will be getting a Windows gaming PC for their upcoming Christmas gift. However, one of my sons has expressed their desire to use [Unity](https://unity.com/). I've been looking at this [MSI Cubi](https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16883152977) for their gaming desires. However, when I looked at the [free/personal download specs for Unity](https://unity.com/download), I noticed that Windows 11 is not supported. Maybe I'm going about all of this the wrong way? I just want a Windows machine that would handle most of the popular games out there that would support the use of Unity. Please, help us solve this problem.

You can set firefox to automatically open all links in a new tab if it’s that important.

I believe you are referring to the following setting in Firefox preferences:

Open links in tabs instead of new windows

I have this checked and it doesn’t work (i.e. doesn’t open links in new tabs).

What is happening with the Lemmy mobile apps?
It's my, general, understanding that **most** people connect to the Internet through mobile apps. If this is the case, then why have apps such as [Remmel](https://github.com/uuttff8/Remmel), [Lemmur](https://github.com/LemmurOrg/lemmur) and [jerboa](https://github.com/dessalines/jerboa) taken a back seat? IMHO, it would be a mistake to market Lemmy without these mobile apps functioning properly. I have forked the three aforementioned mobile apps [here](https://github.com/beehaw-org) and will try to 'drum up' support from developers wherever I can find them. Please, if you don't feel comfortable talking to me about this here, then send me a private message. Thank you.

Besides finances how can people support Lemmy?
We just launched our instance at https://beehaw.org not too long ago. However, a good number of people have been asking questions like this for the past several days on our Discord server. P.S. - I will have a big surprise (hopefully...if all goes well) for the Lemmy community in March.
