What is Matrix?

Preemptive TL;DR: Matrix ≈ Discord - tracking + end-to-end encryption by default

Matrix is a protocol for real-time communication (text, audio, and video) followed by various applications (“clients”) – the official one is Element for Linux, macOS, Windows, Android, and iOS), but there are many others (e.g. those listed here). It’s also federated, like Lemmy. To use a Matrix client, you need to make a Matrix account at one of the Matrix homeservers (similar to how you can make an account on lemmygrad.ml or lemmy.ml but still access both of them). We have our own Matrix homeserver at https://genzedong.org, and you don’t need an email address to register an account there.

How do I use it?

  1. Download a Matrix client (e.g. Element) on whatever device you prefer.
  2. Create an account in the client. You can select genzedong.org as your homeserver here; if you choose the default matrix.org, you’ll need to enter an email address.
  3. Log in. Search for the room #welcome:genzedong.org.
  4. If you already have a Lemmygrad account with a posting history, just mention it in the “Welcome” room and you’ll be invited to the GenZedong space (basically just a collection of rooms – the main one is #general:genzedong.org). Otherwise, you’ll have to answer some vetting questions similar to the ones needed to register on Lemmygrad.

How active is it?

Not very active at the moment, but you – yes, you (!!!) – can help change this! Wow! Amazing!

Important info

  • Encryption is currently disabled in the GenZedong Matrix rooms.

Question :

How to delete a matrix room account ?

if you don’t have the password, you’d have to contact @Based_grandma69@lemmygrad.ml

Can we bridge it to the discord too?

no clue, I’ll ask

instructions for how to do: https://t2bot.io/discord/

Takes 10 minutes literally to do


Is General encrypted?

No, it being encrypted was causing issues

From what I’m told, it temperately disabled. (Thank you comrade Heisenbug!)

Sorry, I didn’t even know that it had been disabled. It really should be made blatantly obvious in the UI if a room isn’t encrypted

No problem!

Fantastic, here’s to making the Matrix instance a more active space!

I was in there but at some point i got logged out of my account and I don’t rember my password pic:crying cat icon

I guess I’ll make a new one

I see that you have taken an alternate approach to Hexbear’s stickers


I like it, it’s working on jerboa too.

This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.

If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.

We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
