Looking for GenZedong?
pin
This post is for those coming over from /r/GenZedong who signed up on lemmy.ml instead of lemmygrad.ml, which is where the GenZedong community is located. First of all, that's perfectly fine and we're happy to have you here! You still have full access to Lemmygrad's communist communities, just like how Lemmygrad users have access to this instance's communities, but for new users, finding a community on another instance might not immediately be intuitive, so I thought I'd direct link the community for convenience. https://lemmy.ml/c/genzedong@lemmygrad.ml -- Use this link to access GenZedong from your Lemmy.ml account!

Regarding blogspam
pin
In the recent months, we've been getting more blogspam accounts, and the administrators have been discussing behind the scenes on how to deal with it. Blogspam is against the rules of this Lemmy instance and is treated the same as any other spam. That is, offending posts will be removed and blogspammer banned. I thought I’d share my thought process of moderating stuff like this. Blogspam is kind of a controversial topic and has a lot of grey areas. It basically involves accounts seemingly made specifically to post links to a specific website, usually with the intent of generating ad revenue. Herein lies the grey area, because simply posting links to your own website or a website you like isn’t spam, nor is it against the rules to post websites that have ads, nor is it against the rules for an organization to have an official account on Lemmy, so it becomes a problem of where to draw the line. You can also run into problems where it’s hard to tell if someone is intentionally spamming or if they’re just enthusiastic about the content of a site. That said, here are my general criteria on what is considered blogspam, with some wiggle room on a case by case basis: * Does the user only post links to one or a few sites? Do they have any other activity, such as commenting or moderating communities? * How often does the user post? For example, it might not be reasonable to consider an account to be blogspamming if they only post a few articles a month, even if they only post one site. * Does the user post the same link repeatedly? Do they post to communities where it would be off topic? Do they post the same link multiple times to a single community? * Is the user trying to manipulate the search feature in Lemmy? For example, by including a large number of keywords in their title or post body? * Is the site content "clickbait" or otherwise designed to mislead the reader? * Is the site trying to extract data or payment from readers? Examples include invasive tracking, forcing users to sign up or pay for a membership before letting them read the article. * Is the site itself well-known and reputable or obscure and suspicious? * Does the site have an "inordinate" number of ads? Are the ads intrusive? (Autoplaying video ads versus simple sponsor mentions for example) * Is there evidence that the user is somehow affiliated with the site? Examples include sponsored links or having the username be the same as the site name. * Is there evidence that the user is a bot? Not all of these have to be satisfied for it to be blogspam, and it's usually up to the administrators to make a rational decision on whether to intervene. Note that these criteria apply to sites that are generally benign, but is being posted in a way that might count as spam. If the site contains malware, engages in phishing, is blatantly "fake news", is a scam, is generally malicious, etc, those alone are reason enough for it to be removed and the poster potentially banned, and would constitute as a much more serious violation of our rules. I'm open to feedback on this, feel free to discuss in the comments!

Post anything that has caveman / cave person vibes. Check sub for examples


Largely a meme sublemmy about all the times communists and fascists agree on things. I wasn’t going to make this, but somebody will eventually and at least i intend this to be light hearted ribbing as oppose to some bone crunching

We can easily make this into a ShitElonSays sub. Or/and ShitElonDoes. You can post anything related to elon or muskrats here.

An edgy meta sublemmy. We’re like c/socialism, but while lemmy is largely closeted armchair socialists, we’re overt armchair socialists. Downvote anything that will actually help achieve socialism like direct action, meet ups, protests etc. Upvote content that will do bugger all.

[!novelties@lemmy.perthchat.org](https://lemmy.perthchat.org/c/novelties) I had no link in my previous post and only just noticed A novelty account is one made for a specific purpose/type of comment. For instance, badwatercolor makes bad watercolor. Their usernames are exactly what they are. A novelty subreddit is easier to define as what it's not. It's not for 'useful/objective topics' like [!worldnews@lemmy.perthchat.org](https://lemmy.perthchat.org/c/worldnews) or science. A great example would be this sub or like [Ask ouija](https://lemmy.perthchat.org/c/ouija). Less good examples are ask lemmy. Can also feature novelty instances, but none exist at the moment nor are forecasted to existed. When you find a novelty account/sub that is not specifically troll/spam related, share it here. The sub should be newish or have some sign of life. [!novelties@lemmy.perthchat.org](https://lemmy.perthchat.org/c/novelties)

Hi, I created a community for the game Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. It's an open-source game, so would've also fit onto [!opensourcegames@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/opensourcegames), but I wanted a place where I can post things which will only make sense, if you've actually played DCSS. So, this is quite a niche interest. I might be shouting into the void here, but that's okay. Of course, anyone else is welcome to shout with me. :)
