Non-tech communities: art, music, books, TV series, hobbies, all kinds of niche communities. These are important for attracting a diverse user base.
Like everyone said, non-tech communities and other niche things. Also, “country communities” should be more prominent, like you can find on reddit. More activities in news and meta communities (like asklemmy) would be nice :P
For countries I think it would be better to have separate instances. That would work better to handle the different languages and cultures.
Definetely more niche communities, for things like tv series, books, universes, etc.
I’d like more activities on non-tech communities such as !firstname.lastname@example.org or !email@example.com or !firstname.lastname@example.org
Memes. I would love to see different types of meme genres having their own lemmy communities.
More directly useful subs about “life” in general, where the (hopefully) higher average user quality can really shine so you would have higher quality of content when reading for the same amount of time as you would on reddit ( stuff like the subreddits: advice,LPT, you should know and maybe even stuff like getmotivated or selfimprovement).
I’m gonna go ahead and (bravely, of course) agree with the crowd and say more non-tech content. That’s the bane of FOSS/Federated social media. It’s great but 90% of the users just discuss tech on it.
Something like c/genshin_impact being big, reddit’s video game communities are big and we might be able to eat into that.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
