I have seen several mentions and articles about using this app to sync game saves for non-steam games. But I have yet to see anyone mention using it instead of Steam's own cloud based save game solution.
The reason I ask is I've been having so many sync errors between the deck and my Linux gaming PC and it's driving me crazy. For example, I just started Cyberpunk2077 for the first time now that 2.0 and Phantom Liberty are out. Put a few hours in from the desktop, then later wanted to play on the couch so I grabbed the SD and fired it up. Only one save had synchronized and it was very early in the prologue. So i went back to the desktop and tried the resync and same thing, will not sync. I read about how too many saves can cause a problem, but I literally just installed and started this game. Maybe 3 or 4 at the time? Up to 6 I think now. So this should be well within any arbitrary sync limits I would think. It's not just this game either. Starfield and Dave the Diver are two others having repeated issues with cloud saving.
Does anyone else use this instead of or in conjunction with steam cloud saves?
As I noted within my post #[email protected] (alternate link), thumbnail generation in Element is an enormous privacy, and security vulnerability. Thumbnails are generated server-side, regardless of E2EE settings. What this means is that the URLs that one sends would be leaked out of your encrypted chats to the server. Here is a notable excerpt from the settings within Element:
In encrypted rooms, like this one, URL previews are disabled by default to ensure that your homeserver (where the previews are generated) cannot gather information about links you see in this room.

It’s here: our 1.1 release candidate! This is the last set of features for our App Store update next week, and we’ve got some exciting ones for you:
Features and Improvements
- Brand new search interface, allowing you to search for users or communities (posts coming soon) and featuring a beautiful new result preview
- Image uploading. You can now upload an image when creating a post!
- New icon: “Stargazer", designed by Sjmarf
- Edited posts and comments now display the updated time
- Fixed images all appearing as squares (and, I hope, finally put our scrolling issues to bed)
- Fixed settings icons not rendering properly on iOS 17
- Fixed a bug where connecting to instances on
- Smoothed out editor sheet animations
- Fixed logging in before email verification crashing the app
- Fixed opening posts from URL links crashing the app
- Fixed swipey action animation and context menu animation trying to run at the same time (ONLY on iOS 17—Apple fixed this behavior generally in iOS 17, there’s unfortunately nothing we can do about it in iOS 16)
- Clarified error message when trying to log into a private instance
- Tapping a “recent searches" suggestion for a community or user not federated with the current account will fail to load
- "Official Community" link on some instances federated with lemmy.ml still opens in-browser
- Items to the right of the spacer in the widget customizer do not initially register taps if the widgets have not been customized since the last build. This is due to inconsistencies in the saved widget config data, and can be fixed by simply moving some widgets around.
- Info stack does not properly adjust its alignment when it is the leftmost or rightmost element

I just want some abs at least once in my life.
Right now, unless someone is linked to an instance directly, the first point of entry is usually join-lemmy.org, and let's face it, it's completely uninviting.
The first few screenshots give off a Rust nerd vibe, and you have a "join a server" button shown to you before you even get to see some short explanation of how the Fediverse works.
In contrast, https://matrix.org/ and https://joinmastodon.org/ (which btw also has this "join a server" shown too early problem, but they kind of go around it by linking a default instance) feel much more welcoming.
Maybe we could have a contest to make join-lemmy.org better? Not just the layout, the wording is also way too technical for the most part and deserves to be reviewed by people with more of a marketing mindset.
We could also have a similar one to make a short introductory video, like what was done by Framasoft (a French non-profit) in this video: https://peertube.fr/w/9dRFC6Ya11NCVeYKn8ZhiD (or probably just reuse that video if there's not enough interest in making a similar Lemmy-focused one?)
Would be really cool to have creative people contribute that way to Lemmy without necessarily coding!

The fediseer now allows instance admins to self-tag their instance as they want. Those tags can then be consumed via the API.
For example, one could use these tags to discover all instances focusing one or more topics at the same time. Places like pangora.social can use them to find more instances to suggest in their lists.
On the flip side, instance admins can also use them to help improve their blocklists in a "positive" manner. For example, let's say that you want your instance to be SFW, you could explicitly block any instance self reporting as "porn" or "gore" etc. Along with the endorsements and hesitations, this would provide a lot of tools to ensure you associate only with the people you fit well.
You can add or delete tags in the GUI or directly via the API as an instance admin
tags_csvarg on the
/whitelistendpoint, will also return all instances which match any of the tags in your csv.
I use LibreTube and it looks like half of the instances keep getting shut down and then get back up, and the speeds for all are atrociously slow that it is just better to watch it on YouTube on Firefox. I heard a while ago YouTube was blocking certain Piped instances but do not know if that is the same case right now.
