Lemmy.CA is alive!

It didn’t take too long to get things rounded up the past few days and I’m glad the domain was available.

Brand-spankin’ new instance, looking forward to rolling along with the Lemmy updates & growth!

Welcome to the fediverse.

.ca? Is it a Canadian instance? Just curious as a Canadian.

As per our sidebar:

“Lemmy dot C.A.” is so named due to it running the Lemmy software (see the links in the very bottom right for more info), being part of the Lemmy side of the Fediverse, and it’s (somewhat) geared toward Canucks, hosted in Canuckistan, and run by a Canuck. It is, however, not at all restricted to Canucks, or Canuck culture/topics/etc. All are welcome!

Buoyyy! I just joined lemmy.ml after an entire year of waiting for other servers.

How long are you planning to keep lemmy.ca alive? I signed up for feddit.social and it disappeared out of the blue one day!

As long as things go reasonably smoothly, Lemmy doesn’t fold as a project (with no useful-to-migrate-to forks), etc., I would say that it would be for as long as possible.

I also run a Friendica instance at https://social.isurf.ca and it’s been up for a couple of years now - I mention this simply to suggest that this isn’t my first kick at running federated social software. :slightly smiling face:

Sweet, glad to have you!

The first step is to add this to your lemmy.hjson on your server:

federation: {
    enabled: true
    # Uncomment this below if you want to be explicit about which instances you federate with
    # allowed_instances: ""
}

Then restart your server, and we’ll add you.

Oh, we’re definitely enabled - looking forward to the federation!

Would it be all right to request being an official instance as well?
