What other services would people be interested to have available via slrpnk.net?
Keeping in mind that it should not be too resource heavy on the server I was thinking of maybe a Bookstack Wiki for collaborative writing of fiction and non-fiction?
A XMPP chat service would also be easy to add.
Sadly Lemmy currently AFAIK offers no account integration options, so that will make things a bit annoying.
bookstack wiki is a good idea, and i’d imagine we could use the wiki for a few different things
there are a few federated type blog platforms i think write.as and plume. Of course there’s demand for another fedi instance, akkoma is nice
some kind of real time chat would be helpful in building community also, Matrix has a lot of server overhead, i like IRC but a lot of people just never use it. Xmpp is easy, but there are already a LOT of free well managed xmpp services, mov.im is pretty cool
but just having a nice lemmy instance is enough for now

Bookstack isn’t really a classic wiki, more something to write and catalogue books with.
maybe sunbeam.city and slrpnk.net can shout each other out, so interested people can figure out if they like the other better.
I vote for XMPP. I would join the chat room(s) if available. The domain is awesome.
Regarding integration, I know from experience that Lemmy supports xmpp: URI’s. I would also suggest making changes to the source to allow users to add their JID to their profile if they can’t already. (Maybe you can by using markdown in your profile?) You can probably replace the Matrix field with an XMPP one with a simple edit.
I run a xmpp server anyways so once I take over the domain it will be super easy to add (right now it would be a bit more tricky with delegating the SSL certificate authority and such).
I was mainly talking about user account integration, i.e. that you can register on Lemmy and use the same account to log into Bookstack or a XMPP account.
I think the best would be if someone would add LDAP support to Lemmy, but I am neither versed in Rust nor do I have time for that sadly.
We could just run it as a pure muc service without user accounts, meaning that you would need a xmpp account elsewhere but we could have chatrooms on the domain.
Maybe there is even a way to automatically create a chatroom for each community. Need to investigate that. I think there is some prosody plugin that might be adaptable for the lemmy API to do that?
Edit: yeah seems like something that might be doable with this: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_muc_http_defaults.html
Given that it’s all open source, there will always be a way to get all of this working, but maybe one potential or temporary low-tech solution is to offer accounts on the XMPP server for Lemmy users individually per request, meaning not everyone gets one automatically, but anyone can ask for one. It would however, be nice to have it all linked together and be automatic.
Maye one day Lemmy could even have a chat feature in the browser which just uses the XMPP backend. Anyway, I think it would be great to have an XMPP account on slrpnk.net. Maybe e-mail too?
I think I like the idea better to just offer chat rooms on here. Most people (should) have already their XMPP or Matrix account which which they can join such federated XMPP rooms. But we could also provide a simple web-client that can be used without an account.
Email is out of the questions, nearly impossible to host these days due to the excessive spam filtering.

I plan to run this on a solar powered ARM SBC where the Lemmy pict-rs image uploads will be already somewhat of a challenge, so Peertube is sadly not in the cards due to traffic and storage requirements.
