The changes made to community are withdrawn because users opinions . But from now on when making a post your first word on tge title should be [NOT FOSS] or [FOSS] respectively. Also i have no intention in anything expect help new users find foss apps i hope you all understand that.

    On a sidenote, could you please restore the poll post, just for archive purposes?

    Seems better to keep those kind of discussions around if the question comes up again.

      I second this. Despite the reversion of the proposed changes, I am still concerned with the lack of transparency and disappointed at how the recent situation has been generally handled.

    Thanks for hearing us and continuing to allow all types of apps here. FOSS is an amazing model for some projects, but some of us simply want to protect the rights of what we create or we’re looking at other models to help Lemmy become more sustainable

      No prob as i said guys like you are the main reason that is stopping me from making it foss only.

      Seems like an improvement. Curious what other people will say, I guess it might still seem unfair to have such a distinction, as I guess FOSS apps wouldn’t have to be tagged.

      If I were a closed source dev, I might ask if my app is welcome here, and to Lemmy as a whole.

    My goal is to help lemmy newbie’s to foss apps and nothing else.

    So are you okay with 3 of the top 10 posts in this community being about Sync and Boost?

        I read your comment as “I want newbies to only find FOSS apps”, while I guess you meant “I only want to help newbies find FOSS apps”

          I “meant” what i said and what i said is :

          Also i have no intention in anything expect help new users find foss apps i hope you all understand that.

          If you pull things out of context it becomes weird . Until now i have respectfully debated with you please don’t pull cheap tricks in the last minute and lose my respect.

            “My goal is to help lemmy newbie’s to foss apps and nothing else.”

            Your sentence could be interpreted in two ways, depending on what the “nothing else” refers to, as I stated above.

            I’m not pulling any cheap trick, I’m just explaining to you how your sentence could be understood in two different ways

              Before that i said “i have no intention and is doing this to help newbie’s to find foss apps and nothing else” so in context everyone can understand what i meant ( expect maybe you ) so you are pulling things out of context and quoting me to make me look like an asshole and that is not nice.

                i have no intention

                You were literally going to change this community rules against the will of at least half of the members if we didn’t call you out about this, so sorry but it seems that you indeed have intentions

                so in context everyone can understand what i meant ( expect maybe you )

                Well, you edit and remove everything all the time so it’s hard to follow.

                quoting me to make me look like an asshole and that is not nice.

                Could you please restore the poll thread? That would be nice too, a lot of people brought valuable comments in there, and now it can’t be accessed anymore, which isn’t nice either.

                You also just edited this comment and the one above. But I am the one misunderstanding your constantly changing comments, really?

                  I edited typos and put a full stop nothing else . Do you want me to remove that full stop ?

    Unrelated, but could you remove the full stop and capitalise “Tools” in the community display name. I get unreasonably annoyed when looking at it.
