Hello World,

This week’s Community Spotlights are:

LW Community: Traditional Art ([email protected]) - From dabblers to masters, obscure to popular and ancient to futuristic, this is an inclusive community dedicated to showcasing all types of art by all kinds of artists, as long as they’re made in a traditional medium

Fediverse Community: Stick ([email protected]) - A place for enthusiasts of sticks of all shapes and sizes. We all love a good stick! Is it a walking stick?


How to submit a community you would like to see spotlighted

Comment on any Weekly Spotlight post or suggest a community on our Discord server in the community-spotlight channel. You can also send a message to the Community Team with your suggestions.

    First time I’ve seen /c/communityspotlight

    This kind of highlighting of interesting communities across the Threadiverse is a good idea. Thanks!

    Is it kosher to submit a community you’ve started/mod for the spotlight? I started one last week that we’ve gotten to just over 300 members so far.

    Both of them are great communities. Kudos to the mods and posters there.

    I like the idea of featuring one LW community and one fedi community.

    What about a community called something like “Keep it Running” within which we can compare items we’ve kept running for as long as possible. My laptop is about to make its tenth birthday without any hardware updates (thanks Linux Lite).

      The Community Spotlight is for highlighting existing communities to help them grow. But yes, of course, you’re free to make any community you want. We just want our communities to be taken care of with good moderation and content. If you do make this community of find one like it, please suggest it on a future Community Spotlight post.

    I’m using Memmy, how do I click through to these communities? If I tap the link it takes me to the main page again.

    Ps thanks for the highlights
