I’m new to lemmy, but honestly I could’nt be more excited being a part of this amazing community, and I hope lemmy stays here longer than reddit!

I think it’s impossible for it to disappear because anyone can back it up from what I understand.

I just saw this on HN and thought: Oh well another community, but clicked on it. WOW, it is by far the fastest community website I ever saw. Can be really a good reddit replacement. I’m impressed! Keep going!

what do you mean?

are you on a quest for libre alternatives, that has finally been completed by finding a replacement for reddit?

FOSS is boss

Lemmy, Mastodon, Self-hosted mail, Codeberg, [matrix], Signal, Invidious, SearX

That’s what happened to me, at least.

Congratulations! I only joined a few days ago, but I already feel at home. Once federation hits, the numbers will go even higher. Onwards and upwards!

Is there a possibility that we can see a graph showing the amount of lemmy users in time?

I don’t have anything set up currently… obvi it is possible bc I have the DB which has a time series of user and join times.

I really wish this place was bigger, I’ll try and vibe until it gets decently sized

@qu4k

Extremely interesting platform, finally a good alternative to reddit. :glowing star: The only real complaint I have is the design of the platform: it’s right in the middle between modern and raw. I would much rather like if it focused on one of the two approaches.

@nutomic

There are many alternative themes that you can pick from.

I had no idea there were themes, awesome!!

hello everyone, I am thinking in migrating our forums from reddit. how active is the development?

@k_o_t

hi, chech the github page out and decide for yourself :)

@rek2
410M

I did, looks very updated. is probably somewhere but is it federated yet?

much work happens at the moment in the federation branches, so you don’t see that much in the main branch, as far as i understand.

@k_o_t

I’m not sure, I don’t really follow the development, but I think there are a couple of instances for testing federtation, and also some component that are already federated, but not fully functional yet, but it seems that federation is the main priority atm.

Hope to see this place grow and for Lemmy instances to pop up everywhere. A federated alternative to Reddit is a great idea. For some reason the pages don’t always like to load for me (occasionally get a never-ending spinning circle, when viewing or trying to post) but that may just be the sheer amount of users now.

Also would love to see more themes than the existing ones (especially ones with smaller text). All the themes I like are just too big for me. Maybe I should try creating one. 🤔

@k_o_t

yeah, lemmy has been having a lot of issues recently (server side i mean), but normally it’s always up (the main instance)…

If you get reddit sized, hopefully the .ml DNS servers can cope!
