I tend to like the various programming language and framework subreddits on Reddit. I find them more approachable than StackOverflow for asking questions, and I enjoy discussing the programming things I use. They do exist on Lemmy, but almost all of them are too small to really be helpful for discussions or answering questions.

I’m (not) sorry, your comment was marked as a duplicate. Here’s a totally irrelevant comment that I unilaterally decided you plagiarized from.

I find it easy to code in, with a good balance between object oriented and functional paradigms. It also has a large open source library since it works on the JVM.

The Fediverse e.g. Mastodon, specifically people from fosstodon.org and social.linux.pizza

A few subreddits. For some a corresponding community exists but is practically inactive. For example !pkb@lemmy.ml and r/Zettelkasten.

I realized that I mostly subscribe to subreddits which are full of discussions not link sharing. Those are harder to replicate because you cannot just post reddit submissions here. At least, it would be weird to post other peoples questions/opinions. For example, r/bodyweightfitness.

Lemmy just lacks that mass of people to establish the niche communities of reddit here. Especially the OSS and programming related ones.

mostly because being a moderator to many communities may eventually become alot of work.
i think it’s noteworthy that communities should ideally be kept alive and active. maintained on an ocassional basis. and perhaps some outside advocacy/publicity on the net.
more will be created in time. it’s also about what might be popular with the existing community.
it’s hard to think of good possible replicas off the top of my head. if anyone does… go ahead and make it. totally unique communities could be interesting too because they don’t suffer from brain drain to one or two giant forums.
i’d like to see a community dedicated to shoutouts for discovering new, interesting, or obscure communities. pretty much c/announcements.

yeah, you can browse all the lemmy communities… but it’s time consuming and tedious to go through all of them.

Fosstodon, a Mastodon instance and a couple of chat groups on Movim/XMPP. All the interest I can think of are already covered here on Lemmy :D.

I like to see things from HackerNews, it’s hard to see all the discussion there without a funcionality like Chat, but it worthy itself.

The instance I run called CounterFed (counter.fedi.live), Instagram, and gameliberty.club

I also enjoy using Telegram, Tox, and Session
