Communities can only be created on by an administrator. While we figure out the direction we want this instance to go in, in terms of moderation, we are curating the communities hosted here on this instance, to avoid duplicating the efforts of other communities on Lemmy and ensure we’re only offering unique, high-quality content.

If you moderate a Subreddit with 50K+ subscribers and would like to create your community here on, please message u/JonahAragon on Reddit.

If you have another idea for a community, you can reply to this thread with your proposal for consideration. and the Lemmy federation as a whole is still quite small, so communities can’t realistically get as granular as they are on Reddit yet, try to think broadly and we’ll go from there. Include whether you’d be interested in moderating your proposed community too :)

You can of course always create a community on any other Lemmy instance if you are not able to create one here, and users here can follow communities from any other Lemmy instance as well.

    This is exactly why I came to Lemmy one. After browsing around and seeing the bigger instances getting absolutely wrecked by refugees, I found Lemmy one, saw it had next to no communities but a reasonable user count, not tiny but not huge. Realized that would probably be the sweet spot for myself, and would support the idea of load balancing the Lemmy instances, instead of everyone flocking to Lemmy ml and beehaw.

    Glad to be here, seems like a reasonable instance with an admin who has their head on straight
