Users of right-to-left scripts wanted

Are you using a right-to-left script (RTL) like Arabic, Hebrew, Persian or some other? We would like to improve your experience using diaspora* but unfortunately there is currently no active contributor who is able to help. Therefore we are looking for users and developers who can help us. Here are some things you could do:

Are you a user who has some suggestions how we could improve diaspora* for RTL scripts?

  • Please check the list of existing issues and check if these are still valid. If it hasn't been mentioned in the discussion yet, please tell us how we could improve the user interface or the behavior of the software.
  • For specific suggestions please open a new issue on GitHub: https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora/issues/new It would be great if you could include a screenshot and describe how the website should look like or behave instead. Maybe even include some drawing with your suggestion. Before opening an issue please check the list of existing issues first, if someone else already reported the issue.
  • If you don't want to create a new GitHub account or if you have some more general things to discuss you can participate in the RTL thread on our Discourse.

Are you a webdeveloper with some knowledge about how to handle RTL scripts?

You know what would be interesting? A menu in #dandelion where you can choose a profile to log into that has the server and user settings already set so you can just tap the user profile and you're logged in. Since I use multiple accounts on different pods (e.g. Metal/Rock on diaspora* which is on #diasporg), this would be handy to have.

i have three problems with my pod.

  • postgre error, very similar to this one: https://lxadm.com/PostgreSQL:_ERROR:_invalid_page_header_in_block_13760_of_relation_base/16995/67484 but unable to solve that way. VACUUM FULL is unable to complete
server closed the connection unexpectedly
        This probably means the server terminated abnormally
        before or while processing the request.
The connection to the server was lost. Attempting reset: Failed.

it's a same host.

  • i am unable to make web chat to work. everything seems to be configured according to manuals. need to chat about it.

  • if I use prosody modules from https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Integration/XMPP/Prosody - roster from diaspora friends is not being built. however if i use old custom modules sent to me by @jhass then the roster is built.

Ben, L'idée de D* c'est d'être une solution SIMPLE pour offrir un "twitter" décentralisé je pense. Je dis Twitter et pas Facebook parce que Diaspra c'est surtout un "feed", des tag et une messagerie. La base nécessaire pour communiqué facilement.

Via le système d'aspect et de "chat" (via xmpp), c'est maintenant un peu plus.

Hubzilla... c'est un peu un gros tas de module et de fonctionnalité qui le rend difficile à comprendre. Il a une marche vraiment plus haute que Diaspora pour les nouveaux utilisateurs.

Avec Hubzilla, j'ai pu, pour le moment:

  • Héberger mon site web professionnel
  • Héberger mon wiki personnel et professionnel
  • Organiser des événement
  • Créer un forum et participer sur d'autre
  • Quitter nextcloud (ownlcloud) et utiliser hubzilla pour mon Cal/Card/web dav.
  • Partager mes fichiers publiquement plus facilement que owncloud (via /cloud par exemple)
  • Jouer au echec en ligne avec pas mal de monde :P
  • Créer un profil affiché différemment selon le contacte qui le regarde
  • Créer des adresse différentes pour professionnel / personnel
  • Remplacer LinkedIn par Hubzilla (Je demande au gens d'aller voir sur mon profil hubzilla depuis LinkedIn et les gens sont assez intéressé par le concept)
  • Etc...etc.. etc... Je met tout mes oeufs dans le même panier :D j'espère que ça ne me lâchera pas à une update ! hahaha

Here's something a little uplifting yoi folks in #diaspora might like! #Reddit tries to make a millionaire each month by asking fellow redditors to donate one dollar. https://www.reddit.com/r/millionairemakers/about

From the sidebar : What is MillionaireMakers? If 1 million people gave a dollar to someone, they could be a millionaire.

We are an embodiment of this #showerthought.

And to exact terms an Unincorporated Nonprofit Association.

This is not a lottery or a charity. See the FAQ for more info.

ELI5: How do I enter? We'll post a drawing thread on February 17th at 6:30 PM ET that's open for 24 hours. During that time, you can leave a top level comment (a direct reply) to be entered. A winner is then randomly picked (see method here), and everyone is encouraged to #donate a dollar using Paypal, Google Wallet, or #bitcoin to the winner.

After several hard years of development, a new platform with Zot and Diaspora compatibility is nearing launch. This platform is focused on providing valuable services at commodity cost. Much of the difficulty in getting to the finish line, is in providing the highest quality end-user experience to a general audience.

It takes much less time to get a highly customized experience right for just one 'user'. This is why I am writing today. I am looking for a company to be the first customer. For a modest web design fee, a site will be designed specific to the business/organization's needs. Features will include of course Zot and Diaspora as already mentioned, but also easy ecommerce, and most importantly, whatever is at the top of the business' wish list. We are not trying to sell anyone on a newfangled thing that does more of the same. We are customizing the software to the needs of the business/org. Don't limit your imagination.

We can accommodate many different applications including (but not limited to): customer engagement, customer support, ecommerce, corporate transparency, corporate responsibility, forums, chat, wiki, or marketplace. There are also many additional features that we can only discuss with potential companies under NDA.

We can't accept just any company for this special case. It would have to be a business or organization that is a good fit. They should be someone who already has an idea of the benefits of decentralized social networking, and is looking to launch a new site. We aim to complete the customer's site within 5 weeks (this is negotiable if what is desired is more complicated and would require more time).

Since we understand this is a lot to ask, there will be a referral fee of 15% to whomever brings us the right customer. (business owners can get the referral fee too)

To summarize: What we're looking for-

  • a business/organization that is looking to leverage decentralized social networking to communicate with their customers/constituents on a deeper level OR a business/organization that has a technological need that would be enhanced with Zot/Diaspora OR a business/organization that specifically does not want a cookie-cutter or centralized web presense

What we will provide-

  • First crack at our new software
  • customizations for business needs
  • 2 years of hosting
  • dedicated support

If anyone out there knows of a company that would be a good fit, and has a budget for a site design, please let me know ASAP by private message on Disapora or Hubzilla, or send email.

Keep in mind, you are expected to earn your referral fee. Don't just send blind leads, send someone you've discussed this with.

I should also mention that for legal as well as practical reasons they must be a US-based business or non-profit. In fact, a non-profit might be a great fit so don't overlook them, I just used business as shorthand for business/organization for much of the post.

Please share this post and respond with any questions.

Hello, I am #newhere. I am a writer, gardener, and activist friend of the indigenous communities of Mexico. I am following the CNI and #Zapatista nomination of an #indigenous woman for the presidency of #Mexico. Actually I have used Diaspora before. I have tried to act as a journalist to report some really nasty genocidal activities, but have always been hacked. Finally, with so much help from the #Diaspora community, I have learned a little about #anonymity, #encryption, and #privacy. thank you. I chose this pod with Fb cross-posting to blast posts to my contacts in Facebook to lure them over into Diaspora. I hope to start my own pod in Iceland the Tor data center in the near future. I have tried and tried to use my real identity but that never worked and I had to use pseudonyms. Due to the nature of my work I really need to have a public profile on social media and I can finally do this on Diaspora. I am afraid that my continual attempts at mainaining an account and then opening another and re-connecting with the same people again may have created confusion, even suspicion. therefore, I will just keep publishing under the #tantramaya tag as always and just come across people again in my stream. sorry for the disruptions.

Just to point a few things out to any new Diaspora users. (Note: your "pod" may be different) Who here has a Google+ account? Well if you do, you surely have noticed by now that the new version of it is in place. As you continue to use Diaspora, you will see some very similar things. For example: Your "Contacts" or "Aspects" here, works like the "Circles" of G+. Your "Followed Tags" here, work like the Collections" of G+. Also the way you post is similar. You write a post add a pic etc. But you can manually select who sees the post by using "public" or "My contacts" or even a certain set of contacts. One difference that you'll be happy to see is the lack of the automated, over-sensitive anti-spam system. While all unwanted spam is bad, and shame on those who do it.. Enthusiastic activity is not thwarted here. You can post more than three or four times an hour in Diaspora and not have to fear being mistaken as a spammer, and get suspended. Now with that said, You can still be reported! Every post has the option to be reported if indeed it is spammy or otherwise unwanted or violent. So don't let that be a free-for-all to begin posting hate-speech or spamming your YouTube channel and stuff like that. because the users are the anti-spam system here. If you do truly spam, we'll get you! But if you are a user who innocently posts a lot of content, Go for it. Just don't go crazy. That would cause others to begin to unfollow you. This is not Fecebook. There are no stupid "Johnny lost his mind in Psychoville. Help him find his marbles!"" or "Bill has invited you to play "Spam my account with spyware"" B.S. posts here. Thankfully. It just profiles and a stream. The only thing I can see that diaspora is needing badly is public and private Groups or communities. Hopefully that will come soon.
