There is a reason Why Lemmy Is Almost Does Not Have Any Activity, Which is:
No One Can Join Lemmy & Interact With it.
If We take a look at “join-lemmy.org/instances” We will come up with the following :
Most English Lemmy Instances Does Not Offer Register Now Service.
Even English Lemmy Instances that offer Register Now Service Does not allow you to create a Community.
If You Calculate the Average Registrations Per The Whole Page of Lemmy Instances (The Average amount of registrations at Lemmy as a Whole) You Will Find it less than 1,300 Not a day, Not a Week, Per MONTH (Less than 50 users per day). With Some instances have zero Average monthly registrations.
If You Dig Deeper You Will Find that a lot of the instances in the page block other instances, meaning even if the user could register at one instance he will not be able to even interact With the whole community.
I think that this issues need to be addressed in order to make this project worth it For the Developers & the users.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.

What type of moderation tools are currently missing in your opinion?
Things that don’t block onboarding (like you can register, setup your profile, subscribe to communities), but slow down spammers (like first post approval or some sort of trust system like in Discourse). Also ways to more easily / quicker deal with spammers… it all feels a bit unintuitive and slow (many clicks to do simple things).
Some sort of super-moderators that fall between community mods and admins would be also nice to delegate more moderation capacity without handing over full site control.
I mentioned onboarding in my other comment: https://lemmy.ml/post/632344/comment/346629
For super-moderators there is an issue, i believe hexbear folks will work on it: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2071
Sounds good. How is the Hexbear upstreaming coming along? I haven’t heard much about it since some time.
They are currently implementing sitewide sticky posts in Lemmy, which is almost finished.
