Improve #federation on #Diaspora with relay servers
It is not easy to enter federation with a small pod (with only few users), because your pod only receives posts from followed users and your post are sent only on pods where someone follows your pod users.
To improve exchange between your pod and others and I recommend to activate relay server in your config/diaspora.yml. It permits to receive posts from other pods even if you are not following any user on these pods (based on tags). It also publishes all your posts to the relay. To avoid to receive all posts, a good choice is to grab posts with pod user followed tags (see scope parameter).
Bigger pods are encouraged to publish their posts on relays to help small pods (outbound: send: true)
Just share this post with your #podmin to be sure #relay server is enabled on your #pod.
Here is a configuration sample extract from config/diaspora.yml :
<br> ## Settings related to relays<br> relay: ## Section<br> <br> ## Relays are applications that exist to push public posts around to<br> ## pods which want to subscribe to them but would not otherwise<br> ## receive them due to not having direct contact with the remote pods.<br> ##<br> ## See more regarding relays: https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/Relay_servers_for_public_posts<br> <br> outbound: ## Section<br> ## Enable this setting to send out public posts from this pod to a relay<br> send: true<br> ## Change default remote relay url used for sending out here<br> url: 'https://relay.iliketoast.net/receive/public'<br> <br> inbound: ## Section<br> ## Enable this to receive public posts from relays<br> subscribe: true<br> <br> ## Scope is either 'all' or 'tags' (default).<br> ## - 'all', means this pod wants to receive all public posts from a relay<br> ## - 'tags', means this pod wants only posts tagged with certain tags<br> scope: tags<br> <br> ## If scope is 'tags', should we include tags that users on this pod follow?<br> ## These are added in addition to 'pod_tags', if set.<br> include_user_tags: true<br> <br> ## If scope is 'tags', a comma separated list of tags here can be set.<br> ## For example "linux,diaspora", to receive posts related to these tags<br> pod_tags: "diaspora, podmin"<br> <br>

Was kostet es, einen Diaspora-Pod einzurichten und zu betreiben?
Ich bin an einem unverbindlichen Angebot für diesen Auftrag interessiert: * Diaspora-Knoten (DPod) einrichten * * inkl. die Einrichtung der benötigten #Laufzeitumgebung
* DPod warten, inkl.
* * ad-hoc-Support bei auftretenden Störungen, die die Grundfunktionalität des Pods beeiträchtigen bspw.
* * Anpassungen bei Aktualisierungen des Betriebssystems
Falls ich versäumt habe irgendwas wichtiges für die Einrichtung und einen störungsarmen Betrieb des Pods zu erwähnen, bitte die Auftragsbeschreibung entsprechend ergänzen. Es geht nur um eine grobe unverbindliche Schätzung der Kosten.
DPod ist für einen gemeinnützigen Verein Freie Kommunikation und Nachhaltiger Lebensstil e.V. "frekonale" http://frekonale.de/ benötigt. Bitte per Privatnachricht antworten.

Making a Good Start on Diaspora
This post is especially for people who are #newhere. I'm writing it because it seems like a lot of people create accounts, send out a nice Hi I'm new post (hopefully “Public” and not “All Aspects”), and then quietly disappear because it seems like there's nobody home because there's very little in their Stream (like a “news feed”) that interests them. #Diaspora gets off to a slow start, and it's probably easy to mistake the leanness of your Stream for “nobody's home.”
I hope to explain why it seems so quiet in here at first, why that is actually a good thing, and then suggest some ways to get off to a good start and bring you lots of great stuff to read, share, and talk about with new friends.
Hello? Is Anybody Hommmmmme?
You're new and ready to explore, but your Stream is almost empty and some of the posts on the subjects you #tagged in your #profile are months or years old! Your first thought: “Oh my, there's nobody else around that shares my interests!”
If you came here from #Facebook or some other social network that is #centralized it's probably easy to think so, because the information from every account on those other networks is stored on one big giant central hub, so everyone has access to everyone else, instantly. While that probably makes connecting with friends and people with shared interests really fast, it also offers no privacy and publishes whatever you say to everyone in the whole universe. I'm not going to repeat all the reasons why Diaspora is better than Facebook. You already know that, and that's why you're here! But if you were accustomed to a centralized network, this #federated network might feel disappointing at first. Diaspora is not centralized, so we don't have instant access to every other person and group on Diaspora. Whatever shows up at first in our Stream is only what is stored on your #pod. Newer pods have to “become aware” of content on other pods, and #tags are not federated except in your profile.
How Your Profile Matters
By adding #tags to your profile, other pods “become aware” of your interest in them, and then include that stuff in what it shares with your pod. Right now you can only use five tags in your profile. But after some of that content arrives you can follow those tags and then put new tags in your profile to bring in even more stuff. The only problem with that, is that changing your profile just to bring more content to your pod changes what people see when they look at your profile. I like my profile the way it is, and I don't necessarily want to make every subject that interests me made public. When you look me up, I may not want everyone to know that I'm interested in #ballet. Maybe that's not something I want directly in my profile. So how do I bring flying elephant stuff to my Stream since putting #ballet in the Search field brings up nothing? I've discovered that it's better to add Aspects than to just follow tags. Follow people instead of subjects. You can even create a “group” of sorts just for people who share one particular interest, by making a new Aspect category. For example if there's something I want to share only with other #teenagers, I have a category called “teenz” and have put my teenaged aspects in that category, and I can direct a post only to “teenz.”
Connect to People, not Tags
Some podmins have created “dummy accounts” on their pods that exist only to bring content to their pods. And users who write a lot about “general topics” have offered their Diaspora addresses publicly on the diaspora forum so people can “follow” them and find their stuff in their Stream. There are folks who you can add if you want more content about #privacy, and I offer mine to help us #teens and #tweens find one another. For example, before I added Aspects, a search of #comics in the Search field turned up nothing. But a week or so after following some people my age, that same search brought in a whole page full of posts about comics! That's the secret!
A Slow Start is Better
Because we don't get “targeted advertising” from people who pay Mister Zuckerburg for the right to intrude upon our news feed, we Diaspora users have to search for content that interests us instead of having some money-motivated jerk buy his way into our news feed, or “suggest” stuff that we might be interested in. It's actually better that way, even though it takes a bit longer. Think of it this way: You choose everything you see, on your own instead of having it handed to you by people who are either in it for advertising money or people who “collect friends” like trophies instead of friends. We're all about #freedom here. Freedom carries responsibility with it. When I take responsibility for my own content, I am truly free. And like anything really worth having, it takes a little time and effort on my part. But it's better than giving up my freedom by handing over my content choices to a bunch of strangers. Enjoy the freedom! Welcome to Diaspora!
