  • until 0.19.4 is released, clients are supposed to suppress comment contents when the comment is either marked as removed (moderator) or deleted (creator).

    they might decide to show contents to site admins or community moderators anyway, but some clients did not implement this properly and show the original content to all users.

    this is of course not something that should have been available to everyone in the first place, which is why this is being fixed in 0.19.4.

    depending on the client, you should still see some kind of indicator above the comment text that shows it was removed or deleted, in this case removed.



  • Are those downvotes maybe coming from non-Lemmy instances?

    As an admin you should be able to see the downvotes of the post that made it to your instance.

    I’m wondering if some software might be broadcasting votes to all linked instances, while I believe Lemmy only sends them to the community instance and it’s the community instance’s responsibility to relay them.

    I have a large library of games I’ve never played on stream. a couple months back I wanted to play a game I had installed a while ago and guess what, forced always online. not from steam, but from the shitty team behind doom (don’t remember which version it was), which just happened to be at the time I had a multi hour internet outage.
    afterwards I figured out I had to explicitly block some network traffic to stop it from trying to force me to sign up for an account with the developer.

    while steam certainly has DRM options, they are configurable by developers and afaik can’t enforce an always online requirement with just steam, only though custom logic in the game or third party DRM. developers are also free to not use steam DRM.

    DRM, as usual, harms the legitimate buyers.

    that being said, steam still does bring a lot of value, such as their hardware developments, their work on better Linux gaming support, the update distribution through a trusted source, and various others.

    you’re not getting banned from steam, you’re generally getting banned from participating in anti cheat secured lobbies of a single game or a group of games.

    single player experience is generally not affected.

    having a 3 strike system before getting banned from multiplayer just means it’s 66% cheaper for a cheater to get a new copy of the game.

    this is also not new and has been the case for the current family sharing system as well.

    The report did indeed show up, so that is something we can work with.

    Since Lemmy 0.19.3 0.19.2, reports are also sent to the user’s instance admins in addition to the reporter’s instance admins (and community instance mods/admins where applicable).
    Keep in mind that you can’t report the same item multiple times and the same text will be sent to all involved instances and their admins/community mods.
