I’ve also cross-posted this post on other third-party apps’ subs:

EDIT: Forgot to write a bit of an introduction of myself, hello to everyone here, long time redditor and someone who also happens to mod a lot of subs on reddit such as r/electricvehicles, r/trulyunpopularopinion and etc!

Though I love to moderate and contribute to this communities meaningfully, I never liked reddit, as a huge FOSS fan, and these recent API changes are freaking stupid as well, there wasn’t a better reason for me to not consider moving to Lemmy. I will be speaking with a lot of other reddit mods in my own mod teams and some other friends, hopefully I can bring some subs/people here.

Speaking of bringing people, please do consider checking out these posts I’ve linked above, and consider upvoting them if you agree, this situation with third-party apps are a great opportunity for Lemmy, hopefully it reaches to the devs, and even if not all apps make a move, even one would be a win.

Thank you!

EDIT 2: Hey guys! I missed some third party apps on the list above, just updated them, and the new added ones are RIF, Joey, Get Narwhal and RedReader. UPDATE: Added ReddPlanet.

Please do consider visiting those that I just added and upvote them, so hopefully they can reach to respective developers!

    Too bad…seems like the kind of community that would rather not be on reddit after the IPO. Ideology wise I mean. But seeing that 161.social is dead now it definitely raises the question if staying was the better move. But I guess that’s the point. If you don’t get everyone to move then the alternative will likely die sooner or later.

      161.social never had any active users, that was the problem I think. They tried mirroring some posts form the dachschaden sub, but that didn’t attract anyone.

        I see. I’m looking forward to how Lemmy does in the future. Even with the disruptive changes to reddit it’s hard to imagine a real mass exodus happening. But a semi sizable community might be enough to at least split my browsing habits between Lemmy and reddit.

          I split my browsing habits between Lemmy and Reddit like a year or two ago. Mostly I browse reddit and when I see funny or interesting content I post it here.

            Seems like a good way to go about. I’ll probably follow suit. I’m not sure if it will be possible to establish some of my favorite subreddits here but we’ll see how it goes.
