found interesting communities mostly when other people recommended it

That’s one way of doing it. The way I found the most interesting and niché subreddits was by hanging out in /all/new.

just got a list of all federated communities, most of them would probably be dead or irrelevant.

That seems to be the current status quo on lemmy. When you browse your homeinstance’s federated communities or visit a different instance and list their local communities, it seems there’s not very much logic to the sorting. There’s no way of sorting them by i.e. activity.

That’s why I go to /all/new on lemmy as well. I see every new post to every federated community. It’s a gauge of activity and I see communities I didn’t know existed because other users subscribed to them and pulled them in.

The ideal /all/new for me would show new posts from all communities.



For example, in a post on r/Overwatch, one user said this phone requirement made them feel bad about having a prepaid phone plan, writing in part, “I’m really upset and oddly ashamed for not meeting this ‘standard’. Never thought I would be disqualified from playing overwatch based on my ability [to] afford a phone contract, but here we are… Blizzard is the first company to make me feel too poor to play a game.”

It’s an odd world where people are too poor to play free games.

Or maybe it means that with “free 2 play” games you pay with something of value other than currency? I highly doubt this whole SMS thing is solely for the benefit of players.


What one consider quality content is very subjective, but one example could be https://exploding-heads.com/c/digitslfreedom with 400+ posts, 6 users per month, 3 per week, 1 per day. 5 posts last 24 hours. 19 subs tbf, but very little activity beyond the occasional upvote.

NRSK’s own communites like https://nrsk.no/c/norway and https://nrsk.no/c/videos are two other communities who posts largely extraordinarily good content (me practically being the only poster could be relevant to this statement) on a regular basis. Yet the only “significant” growth I’ve seen is directly related to advertising the community by crossposting, mentions and in other ways actively pushing it on others.

Of course it could be due to most others consider it low quality, but I believe the lack of visibility is a bigger factor.

I’ve seen a lot of lemmy instances with like 1 user a month. Seriously? What the fuck?

You don’t understand the nature of federation. It’s perfectly valid to create a single-user lemmy instance (just like many mastodon servers are for a single user) and use it to connect to other instances.

I’m on a low-population instance. You’re on an instance with roughly 350 users. My instance blocks no servers, your block around 20.

Even if it was just me here and 1000 users on lemmy.ml, I’d still have access to more of the lemmyverse than you can ever have.


Each to their own, I’d rather have RSS bots than Reddit bots.


politics of the devs but I think it means that lemmy instances generally attract a pretty narrow range of people.

As long as lemmy.ml is considered the main lemmy instance, lemmy will for ever be a far left platform.

Want to see cute pictures of cats? Not much here.

There’s several cute communities, and since I’m subscribed to them instead of the most political communities - I see more cute cats than absurd political takes. By saying that lemmy isn’t for cute cat pic enjoyers, we’ll drive away those who want to post cute cat pics and make lemmy a place not for cat pics but heated and often aggressive political discussion.


some people will come and stick around.

I’ve been browsing around a lot of communities on practically all known lemmy servers. Some communities or instances provide regular content, several times a day, for months or years. Still no upvotes, discussion or visibility.

Why? Well, how do people “come by” before they stick around? They have to actively browse every single instance and hunt down anything that isn’t already “mainstream” enough for other users to already subscribe to the community and pull it to the instance.

The complete lack of organic sharing when it comes to communites is a big hold-back. If lemmy-instances automatically shared all instances edit: communities with eachother instead of just the ones individuals subscribe to it would be much easier to gain visibility by “offering regular quality content” because more posts equals more visibility.

For the majority of communities at this time, regularly posting content is regularly shouting into the void.



Slowly. What I’m waiting for us a new instance to be deemed “the main one”. With Lemmy.ml as the de facto main, the attractiveness of Lemmy is somewhat limited to a certain political ideology. It’s quite excluding.


Luckily most users on Lemmy are quite unsociable, so we’ll be safe.


There’s also “acceptable” loss. Electrocution is the sixth leading cause of death in the US workforce, and that’s clearly acceptable for society due to the benefits of electricity. shrug

I don’t think I like this, so far I’ve always preferred stunted performance over full comparability. Any Debian alternatives that skips these additions?



I tried Insurgency way back but found that Squad was more my thing, highly recommend it for tactical shooter fans.


Cyberpunk 2077 is pretty good now a days, also enjoying some Assassins Creed Syndicate (the London one). Unciv is a pretty decent micro-civilization clone, also available for phones so I’ve been playing it while sitting down for 15 minutes if you know what I mean.

This is simply on a different level, even triple deck cassette boomboxes cannot compare.

Cool video, I never had the original ipod but the Creative copy that played videos way before the ipod video. 😄

You’re welcome to crosspost to nrsk.no/c/videos as well the next time you find something interesting.


Not really, just feedback from a friend who had the v1 and was considering updating to v2.


Integrated LED, 240 lumen output, no bulbs to replace

You can’t.


I’ve heard one should go for the v1, as v2 is reportedly more locked in and have less features.

Please clarify what rules were broken for /c/askawoman to be removed.
I saw that the newly created community "askawoman" was deleted due to being a "troll community", with reason being https://lemmy.ml/post/486254. I never had the chance to visit lemmy.ml/c/askawoman, but see nothing in the provided link that indicates that it's a troll community. Could the administration please clarify what made you decide it had to be removed so I can make sure I don't do the same and get my own communities blocked from federation?
