    Regarding

    Note that you now only have to specify parameters you want instead of all of them.

    That doesn’t seem to apply to the search page. For example, putting https://lemmy.ml/search?q=test&sort=New will lead to The server returned this error: couldnt_find_object. This may be useful for admins and developers to diagnose and fix the error

    Copying the URL of a search (without stripping parameters) and opening it in a new tab so that it doesn’t contains any referers also returns the same error.

    Also great work and congrats on the release 🙂

    Most decentralized protocol requires something to start from, and those servers are known as a bootstrapping node.

    BitTorrent for example, will use router.bittorrent.com:8991 to get the DHT populated, and once you have some nodes you can keep going (without the bootstrap server) from these trusted nodes as long as they keep responding.

    If the bootstrap server goes down, then only new nodes will be able to use the DHT, while the current network will remain operational.
