I was wondering what the point of lemmy was, if we can’t get a certain number of people, we won’t be able to thrive as a community and I don’t see lots of people joining even though it is an open-source and decentralised forum unlike reddit.

There are many obvious things lemmy could do better, should I make a report about it? I think we are lagging behind and not doing things which are obvious. A better GUI for mobile website would be one of the top suggestions I have. thoughs?

It’ll never replace reddit, but the hope is that it’d have a big enough community that it would be a viable alternative.

The federation helps mitigate the issue of too small community since you can interact with lemmy even when you’re not on lemmy itself. Found this post via friendica for example(though I do directly post on lemmy itself)

Has lemmy fixed their nonstandard activitypub? I heard that lemmy and mastodon couldnt interact because of it. However, i could be wrong. Just joined this morning

Lemmy and Mastodon federate just fine since December (except for some minor problems).

Just tried to load post via fosstodon and it presents itself as a link to the lemmy op rather than having it load as an interactive thread.

But at least friendica <–> lemmy communication works smoothly.
