i dont know how it could be technical possible. But would be nice for projects who have a reddit communitie. that everypost on reddit gets mirrorred to their lemmy communitie and that the bot posts every commentar from lemmy to reddit and vice versa.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
For discussion about the lemmy.ml instance, go to !email@example.com.
The client API can be used to make it possible. There is a mirror bot on lotide, btw
i will check it out. ty
There is one for lotide, so it’s definitely possible
FYI if you want to run a bot on lemmy.ml, you should definitely ask the admins about it first. In my opinion it could easily be considered spam.
yeah of course. was more as a idea that could be offered to admins who have communities on reddit and lemmy
You guys seriously want more visual clutter no one replies to on here? Most posts on Lemmy barely have any comments or upvotes. Where is the post quality? Where is the site culture? Whenever I post anywhere else I try to tailor things to my audience so they might actually participate, not flood them with so much content they’ll never be able to read it all. That’s not how you build a community.
I agree that it’s a bad idea. Post quality is an issue if you have the feeling that nobody is going to see the post anyways.
But cross-posting doesn’t work, it doesn’t on the fediverse and won’t here.
okay i am not sure if you got me right. for example postmarketOS has a community on reddit and a community on lemmy. my idea is that if someone writes a post in this (on lemmy or reddit) the bot also posts this at the other plattform. if a person writes a comment (on lemmy or reddit) the bot mirrors this comment on the other platform. so people who are interested in a specific topic(post) can discuss together no matter if thy are on reddit or lemmy.
I’m not sure about that all. It’s the same with this Twitter bridge crap for Mastodon/Pleroma. It works for some days, maybe some weeks. But on one day, they will just ignore the platform, which has less “interaction”. Even if one would mirror the comments from Lemmy to Reddit, the problem remains. And who knows how Reddit will react? I would bet, that they will soon deny such actions and ban those accounts after the first “bridges” appear. 🤷
yeah maybe. i dont know so much about the company behind reddit. but was also my biggest concern that this get blocked at one point from reddit
Maybe not every post & maybe not the comments. One could try with one community and only the Top 5 posts of any given day or somesuch
why not the comments? i mean reddit/lemmy is for discussions? i dont know if some of you tried this matrix-telegram bridge. there is a telegram group with people in and a matrix group with different people in and they are bridged so if i write something in the telegram group the people in the matrix group see it if i would be in the matrix group and vice versa
Because the comments should reflect the user base plus chaos would soon ensue with the flood of comments from reddit. That’s why I suggested to somehow cap the posts, like 5 per day, so we see more content here while still maintaining a sense of a unique community.
And bridging simply works better with messengers than with board-like systems like lemmy or reddit.
I also like that idea.
This would be a really nice idea
