We just launched our instance at https://beehaw.org not too long ago.
However, a good number of people have been asking questions like this for the past several days on our Discord server.
P.S. - I will have a big surprise (hopefully…if all goes well) for the Lemmy community in March.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
For discussion about the lemmy.ml instance, go to !firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nice to see another instance pop up on the network :D
Just a note though: you seem to have a little oopsie in the federation config :P
Yeah, thanks. That ‘oopsie’ doesn’t seem to be a pressing issue right now. However, I could be wrong.
Also, I’ve added your instance to lemmy.pt’s allowlist ;)
Will there be a big announcement? I don’t want to miss it.
I promise to make the announcement here, yes.
You leave me very curious :D
i think the main support is to parcipate, Lemmy is still quite small and there is no enough content
Also, spreading the word around to other online spaces, that would either want to host their own lemmy server, or join here. @email@example.com and I just want to code, and would really appreciate ppl helping with that.
In my opinion, the most useful thing you can do is contribute your own time and skill. Whether by coding, reporting issues, translating, running/moderating an instance or something else. All of these things can be done effectively by volunteers, and in fact its much easier than trying to hire an additional person with donation money (we tried that and it didnt really work out).
For sure. Reporting issues and translating are the easiest to do, and even running an instance is pretty easy, though it comes with a monthly cost ($5/month is enough for a moderately sized instance by Lemmy’s standards). Contributing with code requires more specialization but it’s also very useful.
There are a lot of options, so people can pick whatever they are the most comfortable with :)
