Some people have been asking which communities they should join first, so I posted some remote communities you can subscribe to on the sidebar on the homepage :)

Tech → !technology@beehaw.org
News → !news@beehaw.org
Gaming → !gaming@beehaw.org
Memes → !memes@sopuli.xyz
Privacy → !privacy@lemmy.ca
FOSS → !foss@beehaw.org
Monero → !monero@monero.town
Music → !music@beehaw.org
Books → !literature@beehaw.org
LGBT → !lgbtq_plus@beehaw.org
Nature → !greenspace@beehaw.org
Sports → !sports@beehaw.org
Programming → !programming@beehaw.org

Find another cool community? Leave a comment :)

There’s also this universal community search tool you can try using. If you find a community, just copy its URL and paste it in /search to subscribe to it here. This just goes to show that while there might not be many local communities here on lemmy.one yet, the beauty of the fediverse means that doesn’t matter!

    I’m here from reddit, and thank you for these recommendations. Time for my neuroplasticity to kick in so I can learn how all this works.

      Also here from Reddit. Lemmy actually feels like how Reddit *used *to feel in its early years, i.e. fresh community with fresh ideas. Love it!

    Just wanted to say, thanks for hosting this instance! I’m a reddit refuge and this Lemmy instance has been really straightforward on how to get started.

    I appreciate you taking the time to share! I’ve only messed with Mastodon briefly and the fediverse is a little challenging to navigate at first (in my opinion).

    I’ve been a lurker on the subreddit for ages and when I saw your post I decided it was time to check Lemmy out. Thanks for taking the time to set up an instance to keeps the community alive as Reddit implodes. Hopefully this works out or at least can act as a temporary home until we can figure out what is next.

    I think the reddit hug of love is affecting things today on the 12th.

    Just a general question, on a mobile device is using your browser or an app the better experience? And if using an app is Jaebra the one most people use?

      Was just wondering about that. Jerboa pushed a major update today so I thought it was that, but on desktop I am getting 403’s and timeout galore today. Just try to be patient - growing the platform is a GOOD thing, but real people host these instances in most cases, and fixes take resources!

      I’m actually impressed it seems to be holding up rather well from what I’m seeing. Is there anywhere to view the uptick in traffic?

      I prefer the browser to apps personally, this is actually one of the main reasons I like Lemmy over Reddit and it’s unusable mobile view. You’ll find plenty of mobile app users here too and it sounds like it works fine, I’ll just caution that some (all?) of them sound like they’re feature-incomplete, so if you ever think something is missing from Lemmy, double-check on the website first, because it might just not be added to the app yet.

        Yeah, most of them are still in Alpha. It’s fun to see them grow and change with each update, but you are correct that many features are either broken/incomplete or just missing from them at this point. They’re doing a terrific job with Jerboa, for anyone looking for an android client. It’s very usable!

      What does 30+M, 20+M, etc mean, subscribers?

      • @xffxe4

        I think thats the number of subs that the subreddit had.

      • @Prox

        Yes. “30+M” means “over 30 million subscribers”.

    I was going down the universal search tool list, subscribing to the communities that I was interested in, and I ran into an issue trying to sub to some of the communities. Thankfully I was able to quickly find the answer - anything that is on the block list under https://lemmy.one/instances you are not able to subscribe to from this instance.

      Glad to see that Lemmygrad is on the blocklist.

    I am using the Jerboa app for Lemmy, and I am able to subscribe to communities via the search tab. How do I then view posts from my subscribed communities within the Jerboa app? Anyone know?

    Not sure if I am using the app right…

    Edit: looks like updating the app fixed it. Subscriptions now showing up in the left menu.

    Thanks for the great list and comments! Has anyone found communities for any of these?:

    • onebag
    • barefoot(running)shoes
    • bodyweightfitness/calisthenics
    • degoogle
    • minimalism
    • lifehacks
    • gtd(Getting things done)
  • Join us for all your sports talk over at https://fanaticus.social! We’ve got communities for all the major sports and their teams.

    I also spent the past week forking the popular game day bot, redball, in order to bring game bots to lemmy! There are still a couple of kinks I’m working out but I’ve begun rolling them out to the teams’ communities, starting with the baseball communities.

    Check out:

    And all the teams-specific communities!

      Is there a community for language learners? More specifically I am interested in learning Swedish.

          Apparently. I am quite new to Lemmy and still learning the ropes. Probably clicked the wrong reply button :)
