Hey.

So this is not an announcement, it is rather a moderation question. We have multiple communities related to climatejustice, environment, green, etc.

So i wonder what we should do with them. So the idea of this post is to find the community which we want to declare as standard related to this topic. I think it makes sense to unify them all, as they contain very similar topics.

Another, related question is how that community should be called. I personally would like “climatejustice” as a name, but i don’t know what you think is describing the topic best. Also the least effort would be to call the community with the most subscribers, which is “green” to be official.

Ideally, i’d like to be able to move posts from one community to another, but i think this has a smaller priority for the devs. Also, another great moderation tool for such situations would be to lock a community. That way, we could direct new users to one specific community.

Ideas?

I’m in favor of leaving it as it is. By merging it it would be a different moderator setting, and different language setting (criseciv is clearly not focused on English speakers only). The posts on /c/ecosystem could be moved to another though, and then that community could be deleted (Turns out I’m mod there).

Yeah, what’s the point of centralizing this? Maybe just encourage to mention other communities in sidebar of each other, creating a community graph (what reddit does basically).

I’ve cross-posted the two posts in /c/ecosystem and then deleted it.

Little fix:

Just to not remove the most active one ^^

Just deleted /c/greens (That’s the 14 subs one, you got them confused)

/c/criseciv seems to be in another language and the purpose of /c/ecosystem seems broad, so I suppose we could stick to /c/green for Ecology and climate change and the environment.

The issue with that is the mod has not been active in a year, and I think this is going to be a recurring issue given that people will join and leave often at the early stages of Lemmy. A solution would be a community acquisition option if the mod has been inactive for too long, but I don’t know about the feasibility of that.

Do you want to be mod of the greens community?

@Chloe

Yes if that’s possible sure

There’s also /c/solarpunk which is the best eco-centric community on here. Fight me.

[meta] How does merging communities work admin-side? Is there any particular interface or are you doing that at a lower level?

Thx for doing this. Always good to get ahead of community cleanup, we have a LOT of inactive ones.
