There is a reason Why Lemmy Is Almost Does Not Have Any Activity, Which is:

No One Can Join Lemmy & Interact With it.

If We take a look at “” We will come up with the following :

  • Most English Lemmy Instances Does Not Offer Register Now Service.

  • Even English Lemmy Instances that offer Register Now Service Does not allow you to create a Community.

  • If You Calculate the Average Registrations Per The Whole Page of Lemmy Instances (The Average amount of registrations at Lemmy as a Whole) You Will Find it less than 1,300 Not a day, Not a Week, Per MONTH (Less than 50 users per day). With Some instances have zero Average monthly registrations.

  • If You Dig Deeper You Will Find that a lot of the instances in the page block other instances, meaning even if the user could register at one instance he will not be able to even interact With the whole community.

I think that this issues need to be addressed in order to make this project worth it For the Developers & the users.

    Lemmy has a huge problem with trolls using other instances to impersonate users and post Nazi/gore/scat spam all over the place.

    Sadly moderation tools are still quite lacking in Lemmy and the best option currently available is making accounts subject to admin approval.

    I agree that this isn’t great from an on-boarding perspective and would prefer posts from new users to be hidden and non-federated by default or something like that, but that probably requires quite a bit of development on the backend first.

        Things that don’t block onboarding (like you can register, setup your profile, subscribe to communities), but slow down spammers (like first post approval or some sort of trust system like in Discourse). Also ways to more easily / quicker deal with spammers… it all feels a bit unintuitive and slow (many clicks to do simple things).

        Some sort of super-moderators that fall between community mods and admins would be also nice to delegate more moderation capacity without handing over full site control.
