What happened to blocked instances list?
Question prompted by the fact that I can see a post from exploding-heads dot com, an instance I thought both Lemmygrad and have blocked: ![]( So I check the allowed/blocked instances list to see whether it's still there, and the entire blocked list seems to be gone on both instances: ![]( ![](

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?

Messed up the update to 0.17
Hello, I tried to update my instance but I forgot to read the release notes and used ansible to update. Of course it failed. After the update I decided to check what is new and I realized my mistake. I tried to run the postgress update script but it fails with the message ``` Error response from daemon: Container {container hash} is restarting, wait until the container is running ``` The logs say that the db hasn't been updated. I don't know what else to upload here to help troubleshooting. Thanks in advance!

![]( I wanna be back for develop another UI for Lemmy, which will look like modern Reddit, but better. Earlier i install lemmy with this guide: but now, devs made changes around nginx, so... i cant install Lemmy now. Docker sends me errors)) If you are interested in developing a new UI, please contact me, I need the help of people who understand the installation issue.

Upgrade done, but post previous posts are spotty
We run our own instance, and just upgraded. After the upgrade, a bunch of the communities I have subscribed to on other lemmy instances aren't showing historic content that our instance was aware of before the upgrade. Also, approximately half of my subscribed communities were showing the subscription as pending, despite them not being pending prior to the upgrade Did we do something wrong, or is this a known issue?

Communities Are Boosting Old Deleted Posts
Since the upgrade to 0.17.0, I've been able to join communities from my Pleroma account, so big shout out to the dev team for that! But I've noticed a weird behavior where communities will boost random months old posts. [This post]( was made 9 months ago and has since been deleted but was federated to my server [here](

I can't reach replies to my comments
Every time I'm clicking on a notification to see replies to my comments i'm getting the below message: 404: TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'comment')

How did I block myself? (and also need help to unblock myself lol)
I checked out the blocks page of settings, and I apparently blocked myself at some point. I of course can't fix it myself.

Since the update Remmel hasn’t been working. It’s not letting me add the Lemmygrad instance. I have tried writing it out, pasting, reloading the app, redownloading the app, and restarting my phone. Any idea how I might be able to get it to work?

Upgrade Questions - V0.17
I normally upgrade my instance using ansible and it all goes smoothly. There is more to this upgrade and I do not understand some of the instructions. I think I need more specifics. This is what I have done so far: - Went to - Run Git Pull as instructed - Gone to As I will probably have more then 1 question as I progress through - I will put the questions in different comments.

Formatting links to remote communities?
How do I format a link to a remote lemmy community that allows someone to subscribe to it directly from their own instance? An example of such a post is here This is a post made for a community on, posted to and viewed through my instance Whichever instance you view it on, the link formats so that you can subscribe to it directly from the instance you are viewing it on. I’ve tried using /c/communityname formatting, but that doesn’t seem to work.

Can't post pictures from Friendica
When I try to post images/pictures from my Friendica account to a Lemmy community, it just never appears. It works fine with just text or links. Any idea why that is?

Images not displaying on my instance
I ran out of space on my instance which is hosted on linode. I used their automated system to upgrade the node so it had more hard drive space. Since I did that, images have not displayed on my instance. Either from existing posts or new posts. How do I fix this? I submited a question on GitHub and was asked to provide a "the docker compose logs" and to try restarting "docker compose". I rebooted the virtual server, which I assume would restart the docker compose. If not, how do I restart it? Also can you give me the exact commands to: - do a docker compose restart and where I do it from - generate the docker compose logs and how to limit the size if it is likely to be to big to upload to github and where to run the commands from. Thanks in advance for your help.

Trouble posting and commenting from Friendica
Hello, Over the last one or two weeks, I have had difficulties with commenting from to (I checked that `` appears in the [federated instance list]( More precisely, my posts and comments don't appear spontaneously, but only appear when I search them by hand in the Lemmy searchbar.
