I waddled onto the beach and stole found a computer to use.

    Great to hear!

    Some of the communities are quiet, but you’ll find that people engage with your posts when you make them. Especially if there are a good number of subscribers for them

    You can also post on !communitypromo@lemmy.ca or !newcommunities@lemmy.world if you’re reviving one, so that others can see

    Finally, if you’re in contact with the mods on Reddit for a particular team, see if they’d be interested in having the Lemmy community be the official off-site space for the subreddit. People that want to talk about the team without ads/tracking/annoying UI can come here for it

  • At some point I think I’m going to write a post about nice behaviour here. I have to think about it some more… And this is a diverse place anyways, other people might like different things.

    I’d read something like that :)

    Sometimes we also don’t think about how we could be doing something better. Another thing that comes to mind, which I sometimes forget, is upvoting the post that you are commenting on. Usually if I’m commenting, I want more people to see and join the discussion, but I forget to upvote before leaving the tab

  • The article is nice, but I’m not sure if I’d send it to friends that aren’t familiar with the fediverse. It seems to gloss over some problems and focus less relevant ones

    It doesn’t touch on the issues with Blueskys protocol and makes it sound like an equivalent choice (or worse, a better choice). In the downsides section it touches on racism in badly moderated instances, and the difficulty of setting up an instance. Those issues aren’t relevant to the vast majority of users who will join a large instance that has defederated from the bad stuff.

    It’s a nice article for those who are already somewhat familiar, but a bad first impression
