I am still new to Lemmy and don’t understand some things.

One is: Why do I have to subscribe to a whole channel if I want to only write about one specific thing?

It just doesn’t make sense to me, because it will just pollute my timeline with stuff I really want to see. If I have an opinion on one thing, but will see everything about this topic in my timeline, the timeline will be useless after a few days.

Thanks for your help.


But why subscribing to it at all? Sounds like 2 unnecessary steps.

That’s exactly what OC said too mate, they agree with you but suggested a temporary work-around
