Because Lemmy is new and doesn’t have many users some of it’s communities are dormant. And I have a lot of free time, so if you would like to see more content on a sublemmy but don’t have the time to bring more content yourself tell me on comments down below, maybe I can improve things somewhat.

Personally, more memes. Sometimes I just want to aimlessly scroll and have a few laughs.

More jocularity in general would be nice. I love politics, philosophy and technology but not everything needs to be so serious.

Anything that has to do with Central Asia. It’s not just Lemmy, but it’s simply a neglected part of the world that people might find out that they like if they looked into it.

I guess Asians have their own platforms and don’t really visit sites like reddit or lemmy which are mostly used by Europeans and Americans. I guess their very different writing and China blocking access to many popular platforms play a huge role in this

Hi I’m from Asia ™️ and that’s a misconception. We’re not all from China btw.

Also I’m sure Chinese have some methods for using Reddit, Twitter etc.

Its pretty easy to use a VPN from what I heard. But most people dont care because there are lots of Chinese websites.

In my opinion simply crossposting stuff from reddit is not a solution (I’ve seen you’ve been doing it with pixelart sublemmy). I think that lemmy needs more discussions under posts rather than more posts. If there is a discussion, there is a community. If there is a community, cool new content will come. I myself created !diymusicgear@lemmy.ml, and so far I’m the only one who creates posts there. I get some upvotes here and there, but it does not help to build the community. It’s not hard to find content on the topic, it’s hard to get involved

You can’t expect newcomers to stay on the platform without anything to discuss. This way when new people arrive they will have stuff to be engaged in. We don’t have the numbers to make tons of cool and interesting content, so this is the way to go. Think of it like playing games on Linux with Wine. It gives you access to certain content types you wouldn’t have had access to otherwise. It made switching to Linux possible for some people and over time community became big enough to attract some developers, and playing games without Wine became a possibility. Given enough time same will be the case with Lemmy.

Honestly almost all of them XD I’m subbed to a ton of communities, I decided to go to Reddit and bring as much stuff as possible when I realised out of 21 sublemmies I subscribed to only around 6 had proper activity. Gaming, Linux Gaming, Privacy, Announcements, AskLemmy and Technology. Also sometimes there is stuff on F-Droid and Android. I’m hoping to change that :)

!agile@lemmy.ml - Nobody but me is posting stuff. Only three subscribers.

Same with me on !amphibia@lemmy.ml with 2 subscribers. All though I don’t know much about agile so I’ll mostly bring stuff over from Reddit 🙃

Wtf, was there a subscriber of this???

Is there one of The Owl House?

@someone

Yes there are 2, 2 whole subscribers :D No there isn’t one for The Owl House, I could make one but finding stuff to share on r/theowlhouse is difficult. It’s mostly Lumity junk. I want to make one for Infinity Train at some point tho.

BTW, I will check about Infinity Train. I don’t know that series.

I’m also definitely a commenter more than a poster. That’s exactly what I was on Reddit too.

You all should switch to Void Linux and start posting there.

Dude there is more than enough Linux content. This is to diversify the content.

!laiqbun@sopuli.xyz

It has no subreddit so take that one as a challenge

(half joking lol, that’s the community a friend made for a language i made)

@H4rdStyl3z

I’ve been trying to keep up on recent chapters and episodes of Attack on Titan on !shingekinokyojin@lemmy.ml by basically cross-posting the discussion threads and leaks from Reddit, where the community is very active and well organized. Unfortunately, I don’t exactly produce art/other content myself and I haven’t thought up of other ways to spark discussions as of yet. In hindsight, making a community for an anime series which is almost at the end is probably not the wisest decision I’ve made, but here I go, with some shameless self-promo.

Those types of communities have a place. People often discover or start watching shows late but still wish to discuss their thoughts and feelings and memes. It may be low volume but that’s okay too.

@H4rdStyl3z

That is a good point. Ultimately, it’s there for the people who feel passionate about it and want to express something.

Thank you for your service mate :) I same is the case with !amphibia@lemmy.ml on me since I can’t produce original content either.
