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.

    It doesn’t have to be a privacy focused instance, I just don’t want to create general communities myself which are not actively moderated (because I don’t want to moderate them myself, mainly).

    If there’s a topic that interests you and you’d want to moderate a category about it, let me know. Otherwise there are general categories you are more than welcome post in already, they are just hosted on different servers:
