Just by checking https://lemmy.ml/communities one can see the most popular communities of lemmy.ml. The plan here is to list all the alternatives for those from other instances. One can also suggest alternatives to be added here and I update this living document.

Beehaw seems to make a fair bit of effort in providing communities for most common topics and providing content in a non-toxic and non-politically polarized environment. Would recommend alternatives in either of the two recommended instances.

NRSK.no

Nice list.

NRSK.no is a rather new Norwegian instance, and it looks like we’re going for mostly Norwegian language posts. One community dedicated to content in English is Norway, where everybody is welcome to both subscribe and post.

Our Meta-community is Main.

There’s also now !socialism@midwest.social and !fediverse@midwest.social

I’d be happy to take on a meme community or news or something like that.

How about I create a meme community here and make you its moderator?

That’s fine

Nah, those separate communities have specific purposes and are just fine.

We’re trying to find/make some on smaller instance than lemmy.ml or lemmygrad

There is of course the venerable metal@lemmy.ml, but I generally post in the generalist communities to help grow them.

Once one of these get big enough, not a bad idea to make those on other instances. In case the instance goes down, admin goes rogue etc.

i wouldn’t recommend anything from mander.xyz, it’s a freezepeach instance

Why would a science / nature instance block? My assumption is it would be open to anyone if posts were on topic, and there were no dodgy posts. Moderation might need to be more on point.

Just by looking at the instance’s posts, it doesn’t look like it. I however remember it becoming a spam haven at one point.

it federates indiscriminately, including with the far-right wolfballs and the Marxist-Leninist lemmygrad

I could speculate about this endlessly. Regardless, Sal@mander.xyz, what is your opinion regarding this?

Should we nominate !fuckcars@lemmy.ml to find an alternative? seems pretty active

https://lemmygrad.ml/c/shitliberalssay, shit fascists say, shit patsocs say, leftist infighting, shit soc dems say, shit white people say, shit anarchists say, shit etc says --> https://lemmy.ca/c/armchairsocialist mostly

communism --> !socialism@midwest.social

late stage capitalism, boring dystopia, futurology, collapse --> https://mander.xyz/c/aboringdystopia

anti usa, pro usa, usa news --> https://lemmy.ca/c/usa

Why can’t I follow @privacy@lemmygrad.ml and @privacy@wolfballs.com from my instance from? The other two worked…

Your instance, Feddit.de, have chosen to block those instances. You will not be able to participate in the mentioned communites with your current account.

If you want to access those communities you’d either have to create an account with both servers (since they block each other as well) for a total of three accounts. Or you could move to an instance that doesn’t block either instance.

From the frontpage of Feddit.de (and every other lemmy instance):

then you see

aaaah… Thank you very much! Now I see.

So it’s not forbidden - or let’s say frowned upon - to make an account on each instance?

Not at all, some people even prefer different accounts to separate what they share with whom.

I personally prefer a single account on an instance that doesn’t pre-emptively block others, since the whole point of federation for me is to be able to access anything from anywhere with just one account.

good point. I see it the same way.

Do you know an instance that is perfectly made for this - not blocking anyone at all?

Only NRSK.no that I know of. 🤷‍♂️

Pretty sure we’re not doing lemmgygrad since it’s the problems of lemmy.ml x10 and wolfballs is far right

They’re both legitimate privacy instances and part of the lemmyverse, is it a proper list if it doesn’t give all the alternatives? Up to the maintainer.
