Hello all, and welcome!
We’re launching our reddit-like Lemmy-based site today! And, by launch, I guess it means we’re just opening the doors, as everything appears to be in place and functional, as far as my testing-so-far has gone.
While the platform we’re running on, Lemmy, is pretty beta software and has many items to refine, it’s been in a very usable state for some time. Recently they were able to add in working federation, so sites can be linked together and not in small, individual silos (unless that’s what one wants).
So you’ll see some communities here that appear to be from elsewhere, and they have a more involved community name, and you’ll see a variety of communities that originate here as well. It won’t really matter to your experience, you’ll be able to make use of either type without any real difference.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me or post in the lemmy support forum (which I’ll link up here as soon as we have it federated here).
Thanks, and enjoy the service!
