Since the influx of new users coming to !genzedong@lemmygrad.ml (after /r/genzedong was quarantined), that community seems to be overwhelming the “Active” algorithm.

Currently, 14 of the 20 posts on my frontpage view of lemmy.ml are from that one community. Perhaps lemmy’s “active” algorithm could be adjusted to prevent a single community from dominating the front page to this extent?

(I realize I could just unsubscribe from it, and also that I can use the “local” tab to ignore everything from other instances, but I don’t want to do either of those things.)

Fully agree - It’s really cool to see Lemmygrad blow up, but it also shows the algorithm could do with a tweak

You can switch to local posts only as well.

The thing is, I’d still want to see lemmygrad posts (including c/genzedong), just not see only genzedong@lemmygrad.

Fair enough. I get where you’re coming from then, the sorting algorithm could do a better job at balancing content from different communities.

I don’t care what I can do. I’ve got Lemmy set up the way I like it. I care what other people see, since that makes them decide whether or not Lemmy is for them.

Good defaults matter.

Came to this community to write a post about this, but found yours.

Switch to Local instead of All on your Lemmy frontpage.

Or let the current explosion of activity subside in a week or two.

You could go to settings and click blocks and block the community?

Also maybe try out the “Hot” sort type?

It is the case that the “Hot” view does show posts from more communities at the moment.

But I’m talking about the “Active” view of the “Subscribed” tab, and as I said I don’t actually want to unsubscribe from it (much less block it) - i just would like to be able to see other stuff in that view too.

Maybe this post recently is helpful? - particularly the admins’ link to ranking documentation.
