"What's a pirate's favorite letter?"


"Aye, he liked the r/, but it's the c/ that he really loves."

[-] [email protected] 59 points 11 months ago

What did the pirate say when he turned 80??

"Aye matey"

[-] [email protected] 15 points 8 months ago

"Commons, copyleft, chaos... hehehe, i really like this letter."

Thank you for setting up this new ship โœŒ๏ธ

Not sure where to ask this, so I'll ask here. Linking to pirate sites (not content) is okay here as I understand it. However my account is with Lemmy.world, which in its "rules" specifically states "Protect our community from harassment, malicious or illegal content". Would I technically be at the whim of Lemmy.world by linking to pirate sites, or do I have some leeway here?

[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 year ago

This kind of Piracy (not to be confused with the whole ship plundering one) is not a crime in most of the World, rather it's a Civil Law affair, so roughly in the same basket as breach-of-contract.

I suspect the whole "illegal content" stuff is about things like child porn or bomb making instructions, not breach of copyright.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 year ago

Common law legislations also have piracy laws? I would rather say it's more of a western kind of affair, since a lot of countries in the east + africa (especially underdeveloped or that only recently developed) have yet to sign international treaties on enforcing piracy law.

Having the law is one thing, but of course most countries that aren't on western europe or North America barely enforce piracy laws. (For example look at the entirety of south america, where official huge bus companies will just play pirated movies on the screens)

[-] [email protected] 11 points 1 year ago

I think when they say 'illegal content' they mean, like, drugs and terrorism. Piracy probably ranks pretty low on the list.

Now yes the definition of piracy technically fits in the definition of 'illegal content', but just because two definitions intersect doesn't mean you will get the logical consequences. The word of the rules is one thing, the rules in practice is another, so i think you can get away with a lot regardless of instance.

Besides, do the rules apply to the instance where you have your account, or to the instance where you're posting/commenting? I genuinely don't know

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 year ago

do the rules apply to the instance where you have your account, or to the instance where youโ€™re posting/commenting?

That is essentially what I was asking. It kind of seems like it's both, but I'm no fediverse expert.

I guess it really just depends how much of a stickler the lemmy.world mods are, and/or if they have any way of finding out I'm linking to stuff like that.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 year ago

Replying for visibility!

(In case it is useful, at least on the instance I use, vlemmy, the mod said that as long as it is not on local it doesn't matter but that was regarding a porn rule)

[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 year ago

I'm so glad to be able to find this community again. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 year ago* (last edited 1 year ago)

There's links to the restricted Piracy subreddit now which need to be replaced i think ? Like this one in the FAQ : https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/n62da6/how_do_you_guys_know_if_a_virus_warning_is_a/gx4whhz/

Hey, quick question for anyone who can help me.

My Qbittorrent refuses to seed for some reason, I have really good internet speed and wanna help with seeding but it just constantly says 0 upload even though the limiter is set to infinite.

Any solutions?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 year ago

Mine is the same way for most things. I seed everything for at least a month and am generally lucky if I get a .4 ratio on anything. Granted I'm on private trackers with minimum ratios so everyone is generally really good at seeding. When Hogwarts dropped I I got like a 10 ratio, on a 90 gig torrent, before I got a letter from my ISP about and shut it down.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 11 months ago

it could be your ISP blocking the upload, try using a VPN

We need WWE/AEW and UFC streams to watch if we missed it live. Also, what are the live stream sites for these shows? The mega thread doesnโ€™t have reliable or currently active options. Soap2day was the best at this.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 11 months ago

Are we allowed to ask for help with finding specific torrents? I went through the sources in the mega thread but the music I'm looking for didn't pop up on any of the sites.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 year ago
[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 year ago

Has there been a replacement for The Trove? Last time I looked all the links following the take down no longer worked.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 year ago

Avast me hearties โ˜ ๏ธ

[-] [email protected] 3 points 10 months ago

Is there a tracker that gets most switch games? I used to use nsw2u, but lately most games area direct DL and not torrent. IPThads some of the games, but many of the ones I'm looking for are missing.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 year ago

so.. will my italian links be added???

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 year ago

@[email protected] rentry.co seems to be down. Please edit to rentry.org. Endpoint can stay the same

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 year ago

thank you !! glad to have the community back :D

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 year ago

Megathread link not working for anyone else.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 1 year ago* (last edited 1 year ago)

Currently, the .co domain is experiencing a DNS resolver issue (comes and goes). I tested it on Cloudflare, Quad9, and NextDNS, all with Firefox.

Edit: .co domains are all working again, but you can use .org as well.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 year ago

Not sure if there was a change, but the co in the links only works when swapped to org

This could be intentional to avoid something I didn't know about. Hopefully it is just a mistake or unknown change though.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 7 months ago

Iโ€™m a bit confused. I only see the headings of the wiki and their symbols/emoji. I donโ€™t see content. I somewhat lurked this community but now Iโ€™m surprised. It seems my monocle cannot go past the fog!

[-] [email protected] 1 points 7 months ago

Anyone know of any active TTRPG book sharing community? Mine have all gone dark over the years.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 7 months ago

Apologies if you're asking for something different but I recently discovered https://annas-archive.org/ which is great for books.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 year ago

Thanks for this, also we can comment on this megathread.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 10 months ago

i do have a very unknown angry birds game i want to play

[-] [email protected] 1 points 9 months ago

I love the little emojis, it's adorable. ๐Ÿ˜
