This isn’t like a small feature suggestion. This would be a pretty big change. But, hear me out.
It’s not possible to post something without posting it to a community. This makes sense considering the ‘megaforum’ nature of Lemmy. But what if each user had their own page to post what they wanted? Kinda like a blog.
We have /u/ for users, /c/ for communities. What about a /b/ for a ‘blog’?
The idea is that every user that registers for a Lemmy account would along with their /u/ page also get their own /b/ page, identical to their username. This /b/ place would be much like a community, but it is reserved for posts by the associated user only. Possibly with options to allow people to leave replies and cast votes.
I think this would be great! I don’t think there’s any other forum/link aggregator that does the same, or at least no ones that I’m aware of (there might be some ancient websites that do this that no one really uses anymore and that I’ve never heard of, you never know). Thoughts?
