How awesome is that!? I cannot wait until we start federating! I’m very happy to see actual engagement here, and seeing a community grow. This is too cool!


Not a tough hill to conquer but it has been done nevertheless! :smiling face:

I feel that libre culture discussion forums are definitely lacking on the web. It’s definitely not as small of a niche as it appears to be.

Here’s to top 5! :beer mug:


Haha I made the community when there were already hundreds around. A lot of them seemed like they’d be very difficult to top. I didn’t really have tremendous faith that we’d get here, but here we are! I can’t wait to see us reach top 5, but my faith is still limited. I hope to be pleasantly surprised!

The fact that I topped /c/science and /c/python honestly amazes me. They both seemed like rocks that would be impossible to top. They were just so much more popular and people would sub to them immediately and stay subbed forever when joining, despite the lack of engagement.



What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
