Well... The information for SPM brought me to r/Malaysia in the first place, and I saw some concerns over loss of info regarding that, so maybe? Asides from that, I just want to say I've browsed through most of the communities and it feels like I'll continue to use this instead of reddit Malaysia, feels comfy here even if there's not much people. (I think it's mostly because politics has its own thread and it isn't jumbled up together with other wholesome or fun stuff, quite a nice break from all the news honestly)

Glad you're enjoying it here ^^ I think we can migrate pin of those information over here too... what do you think? @a_HerculePoirot_fan@monyet.cc

[-] a_HerculePoirot_fan 2 points 8 months ago

Sure thing! Lemmy doesn't have a wiki yet, but looking at the vast interest in Lemmy and relatively rapid development, we're confident that there will be a wiki feature soon so I can migrate the sub's core resources to Lemmy too.

Food communities: I think three different people have suggested this now. I think this is really great. But which works best?

  • Today I ate
  • Today I cooked / Suami masak apa hari ini
  • Restaurant hunting / recommendations

My suspicion is the first one hmm. Also, any better name ideas than !makan?

[-] Annoyed_Crabby 4 points 8 months ago

Hmm, maybe have people just use tag like [Today i ate], [today i cooked/baked], and [reco] in front of their title? And make it all under Makan or Food. (i think english would be better in case visitor from other instances wanna find malaysian food recommendation)

Hmm just to share an idea while briefly visiting. What do you think of having one thread per day for sharing "today I ate's"?

  • That way it won't take up a ton of posts on the frontpage if everyone starts doing it
  • Plus it's more cosy, I saw feedback elsewhere that it felt weird making a whole post for random lunches. I kinda agree, it might be fun for people to share their everyday casual meals (not the fancy cooking / restaurant stuff), but it feels a bit intense to post that to the frontpage
  • And there's this minigame aspect of like, whose lunch/dinner "won" the most votes today which is quite fun
  • Plus it's much easier to build a little habit of scrolling through everyone else's food shares and commenting socially, if it's all within a single post. Like "lunch gang", keeping track of diets, etc
  • Hmm also might build a nice separation between casual low-stakes food posts, and all the other kinds of food posts

Just sharing the idea btw, super welcome to not do this. Annnd I'm out, still in crunch. (More time this weekend)

Edit: Oh and thanks so much for setting up the sub!!

Aight imma steal this idea ๐Ÿ™ˆ

[-] hyattpotter 1 points 7 months ago

I feel like [today I made] would be a good catch all phrase! today i cooked bread would sound funny xD but just a minor thing tbh

[-] Annoyed_Crabby 1 points 7 months ago

Yalor, but i do feels like it's just guideline lah, [i cooked] for culinary and [i baked] for pastries. But [i made] also can haha, i'll add it to the guideline later

[-] Naomikho 1 points 8 months ago

agree with this ^

[-] dcx 1 points 8 months ago

I really like this btw! If we have a single !food for everything, we can gradually figure out what people enjoy doing and branch out.

There needs to be more of a push to move r/Malaysia to monyet.cc

Currently the content and interaction suck on both because mods crippled r/Malaysia and monyet.cc hasn't caught up yet

Edit: OK I take that back. The content on monyet.cc doesn't suck so much because I used to use it for news. And since stormy is doing his thing I guess it's alright. But interaction is lacking severely. It's like no one got the memo to move or can't be bothered. Seems weird seeing we have like 300K+ members on r/malaysia

[-] dcx 1 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

Interesting take! Hmmm I'm not confident that we're ready to try moving everyone over in bulk yet. I am hearing a lot of noise from less technical users. And I'm finding Lemmy really is still quite rough around the edges. Especially around end user polish, federation to main subs, etc. My concern is that if we force things, we could lose 80% of the userbase in the transition. But love to hear other thoughts.

Have assembled a post specifically for us to think through our future direction โ€“ currently pinned!

Possible issue:

One of the communities in my subscriptions are not getting "synced", i.e. clicking on the community doesn't show any feed. The community is !cybersecurity@sh.itjust.works . The other communities on sh.itjust.works work fine.

Is the pictrs backend down? I can't seem to upload any images.

[-] ruk_n_rul -1 points 7 months ago* (last edited 7 months ago)

What's the way to load a foreign community again? I've been trying to load /c/fediverse@lemmy.world but I keep getting a 404: couldnt_find_community error message. Is it because of version mismatch or something?

I'm trying to follow advice of moving my subscriptions from my lemmy.world account to one on a smaller instance (i.e. this one) but I can't do that if I can't load those communities here.
