The community was started after this post: https://lemmy.ca/comment/5057563

When Reddit was first becoming popular, were it’s communities and content basically just clones of other websites like Digg?

Someone mentioned how Reddit used to sockpuppet to fake engagement, and Lemmy DOES need some new and original communities, so here

You can make posts about sockpuppets reenacting real life events using any format you want!

For example:

  • You can doodle on a napkin
  • You can use MS Paint
  • You can use REAL paints
  • You can use generative AI
  • You can use real sock puppets
  • You can pose an old sock in a weird way

      Historical sounds good too, it might be easier and in better taste too

      The example post was from the early days of Reddit

    I’m interested but I don’t quite understand it yet - like an RP community except doing news?

      It doesn’t have to be current news, I was thinking any events might work

      I’m also trying to keep this open to see if it affects community growth, open to seeing what people want to do

      Sorry the post was unclear, I just clarified. Doodling on a napkin was an example of post format, to show that it doesn’t need to be very detailed :)
