While @nutomic@lemmy.ml and I do have a lot of issues that are going to take us a lot of time this upcoming year, its still useful for us to hear what your most desired features for Lemmy are, and prioritize them.

If they’re smaller, we could get to them fairly quickly, or others wanting to contribute could see whats most wanted.

Outside of just posting them here, make sure github issues exist for them (this is what we work from), and do a thumbs up react for all the ones you’d like. Despite being a popular project, we have very few people voting on these issues . We can then use the link above (issues sorted by most thumbs up ), to keep track.

Thanks all.

    maybe more privacy features, like offering an invidious link when someone posts youtube, nitter for twitter, stuff like that

      We could add helpers in the ui, like the one we have on the create post page for using an archive link. But overall I’d like a link aggregator to remain mostly agnostic about the links being posted ( we also do remove some tracking / utm params tho ).

      The other thing is there are many of these 3rd party viewers, and they go down quite often and leave dead links. We’d use it if someone made a rust or js library for it tho.

      Oh wow, I would love this. I agree, it would be mighty convenient.

    The ability to tag posts (what are called “flairs” on reddit)

    It’s not that big of a deal, but I’d love to see a redesign on the main page’s community related sidebars. Both of them feel really clunky the way they are now, having them come one after the other instead of in a vertical list, and with no way to order the ones you are subscribed into alphabetical order instead of popularity order.

    The way Reddit does the trending communities in its redesign look pretty good, and the way old Reddit orders the subreddits you joined in the top bar is also nice, something at least inspired on that would be really good.

    Also a redesign on the top bar (when the page is taking less than half of the screen) should be at least in the priority list, it’s the one aspect of the site that looks REALLY bad.

    I just would want the option to view pages as lightweight, static html with low or no JavaScript, even if it means pages are not interactable.

    I also think it would be nice if there were additional themes, and that the things fundamentally rethought how much white space was put all over the place. There’s so much potential with the things, but I genuinely just don’t think they are reaching their potential right now.

      Lemmy UI works with javascript disabled, but you can only read things, everything else doesn’t work.

      I see what you mean with theming. Making it easier to change themes easily makes the experience better for those of use who want it just right in a different way. But as to defaults, I don’t dislike Lemmy’s design at all. Though I get the desire for flexibility.

      I’d really love to see an option that’s closer to old reddit or Tildes.net or something, I always feel a little alienated by the design as it is now.

      Do RTL languages even work properly in lemmy, is there an instance using a RTL language?

      There are millions of RTL language users (arabic is very popular), some (almost all?) living in dictatorships and might appreciate having control of the data (They might fear big tech will collaborate with these governments and give them information about pro democracy activities).

          have you tried writing a sentence in a RTL language?

          I tried in mine, the dot at the end of the sentence is at the wrong side of the text ,it’s at the right side, it should be on the left. (atleast that’s what it shows in the preview, I prefer not to give extra information about myself like what kind of language i use).

      Adding onto this, IndieAuth looks like a good solution in that department.

    1. Multi-communities akin to multireddits, and also, cross-instance multi-communities.

    2. If you log into your account on a post, I’d prefer to be taken back to the post, instead of the front page, as it is now.

    3. MoAr federation (for example, the ability to follow mastodon or pixelfed accounts from Lemmy, it could work well with custom multi-communities).

    Human readable URLs! The URL is a very important part of a site’s user interface, and lemmy’s URLs currently just have a post number - there is no title, or even the name of the sub-community. Compare this to reddit: when I paste a friend a reddit URL in chat they get two hints about what it is about: the subreddit name, and the post’s title, both embedded in the URL itself. This lets them decide if they want to click it now, or later, or never, or to recognize if they’ve already seen it. Lemmy links should be like that.

    I would like to see more federation if possible. Would it be possible to add seeing Plemora/Mastadon posts on Lemmy? Also it would be cool to federate with pixelfed if possible.

      User following is still way down the road, we wanna get community following solid first. Pixelfed comments might already work, I’m not sure.

    I’ll make a issue later but front page sort options should be cached in local storage so that if I click comments on a thread and comeback I don’t have to reset my filters.

    1. Community specific flyers for accounts (for now we have only mod)
    2. Community specific flyers for posts determined by mods of community (like question , discussion, news etc)
