I don’t like reddit. I would like to migrate over to Lemmy. Lemmy is making it exceedingly difficult to do so. I have this account that I’m working from right now from my computer. I cannot add it to the app on the phone. I simply will not go through. After I put in the credentials it stays at the loading phase. I don’t know if there is an error or not because it will not tell me. It will stay in this phase for hours.

I couldn’t even make an account over the phone because it wouldn’t tell me syntax errors when I was trying to make the account. I would hit create account and it would sit there doing nothing as if the page was broken. For instance, it wouldn’t tell me what characters I was allowed to use in the user name, it wouldn’t tell me how many characters and what kinds of characters I needed to use in the password.

I had to build to the account from the PC in order to be told I needed to adjust my user name and password. It took over a month to bother to figure that out.

Even after creating the account and being able to use it from my PC I am still unable to sign into the account or use it from my phone.

How many people want to migrate over to Lemmy but are being denied access due to these technical problems?

Lemmur is not really in a good working state right now, so if you’re using it I suggest installing Jerboa. Which app are you using?

I’m using Lemmur. I’ll try Jerboa. I didn’t know there were different apps for the site. Thanks

Hey these apps are still new! I have always been the using lemmy through the mobile browser, and it works flawlessly!

so I downloaded Jerboa, hit the profile icon on the bottom right and nothing happened. There is no option to sign into the app. Opening the directory on the top left of the screen and selecting profile from there also does nothing. It glows blue for a second and then does nothing.

PS

I actually have F- Droid downloaded on my phone! I’ll try installing it from that repository and see if it works if I install it from there.

So Jerboa from F-Droid has a Download Failed message.

“The requested file was not found: http://f-droid/repo/com.jerboa_9.apk

so that’s that.

Ok ive just switched to jerboa now myself, by default it let’s you view Lemmy from a guest account. So its a bit unintuitive but you have to go to the menu @ top left and add account first.

I don’t know why it’s not working for me. I’ll try again another day and see if it fixes itself. From that top left menu tried to select profile but at this moment it’s unresponsive for me. Hopefully whatever is going on is going to resolve itself. Thanks for replying.

How are you trying to create an account? Through the website? What browser are you using, it should show you exactly what is wrong with your username.

The account is created. I used my PC on a firefox browser. The problem is from the app, Lemmur, not a browser. I heard there was another app, Jerboa that might work.

I was originally trying to create the account using a phone on both a chrome and firefox browser. No error messages occurred. It should have returned an error I couldn’t tell you why it didn’t.

I just tried creating an account through the browser, it works fine, says regstration application sent.

I can’t help you with lemmur as I didn’t create it, but I did make !jerboa@lemmy.ml, and everything works there, although you can’t create an account through it yet.
