Communities can only be created on Lemmy.one 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 Lemmy.one, 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. Lemmy.one 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.

    I’m liking the idea of lemmy.one currently being an instance with just the 3 comms and it’s really a starting point to view the rest of the lemmyverse. with the current hug of death plagueing lemmy(dot)ml this will hopefully be a good way to add stability

      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

    Some general categories could be useful for local posting. While I’m aware this is a privacy related instance; I wouldn’t mind seeing a general post category or two; and we could leave out the polarizing things like politics.

      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: https://lemmy.one/communities/listing_type/All/page/1

      I made a chat category for low-key local talk, and updated the sidebar on the homepage with additional generalized communities you can post to :)

    I’d like to see a VPN-focused board on here. While yes, VPNs would fall into the privacy category, I feel like having a dedicated community for them would be ideal and help filter it out a bit better. One for Tor would be nice, as well.

    If you wouldn’t mind; I would like to create a community for genderqueer folks like myself; titled genderqueer

    additionally if any additional moderator help is needed; I’d be glad to pitch in…many redditors are looking mighty pissed off now and may join us on the lemmyverse.

          Just curious why the PM via reddit? Are PMs via lemmy not a thing yet?

            PMs via Lemmy are a thing, but if you’re an existing Subreddit mod I want to verify that on Reddit :)

    A community for Monero. There was some instance set up a few months but there was some federation issue.

    I’m super new to this, found the literature, gaming, movies/tv, and music groups.

    There doesn’t appear to be one for comic books/graphic novels. :( Not quite “Literature”. LOL.

    Would love to create a free talk community. Just text posts and links all day back and forth. Create post for each day, comments back and forth within the post. I’d moderate

    I’d love to recommend a c/MMA community. It covers a wide range of combat sports (striking, grappling, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, sambo) and has a thriving community base. I’d be happy to mod.

    Do you have to register a username on another instance before creating a community there, or is it possible to do that with just a lemmy.one handle?

    I want to see a Blankies community here, to emulate the great little movie discussion and meme subreddit for Blank Check podcast fans. Haven’t seen one pop up yet, so thought I’d make it. Maybe I’ll just wait for someone more industrious and knowledgeable to do it.

    I’ve looked around and can’t find anything here or on other instances relating to audio engineering and post production. If there were some I’d be happy to make some tutorials and other posts to get it started
