Lemmy is booming

I have never before received so many reactions and comments on my Lemmy posts before, so it's obvious to see, that there are many new members here.
Welcome to all the new! And I'm looking forward to see more of you here.
Cheers!

Yes, it's great. I'm enjoying this a lot.
Welcome, everybody!
Yeah, I hope the momentum keeps going!
Yep, fediverse observer reports monthly active users count has doubled in four days, no real change in revenue (money donated) it seems which is a shame. The conversion rate needs to improve IMO and it seems that the option to donate is not attracting the attention it deserves. I think lemmy needs more improvements so it will be able to retain a bigger chunk of the users that is exploring the platform, look at what happened to mastodon and the fediverse after the migration after elon musk buyout , According to the statistics almost half the users are gone.

What's the best way to contribute? I used the Patreon link at the bottom of the join lemmy page.

Looking at it now https://www.patreon.com/dessalines is pretty lite on details.

Dessalines is one of the admins for lemmy.ml and I think he's also a Dev so it seems like the right place to contribute.
Well, it got me to try installing an instance of my own. Weโ€™ll see if I manage to keep it running ๐Ÿ˜‚
@lmorchard
Cool! I have my own Friendica instance ๐Ÿ‘ which I'm also using for posting on Lemmy. I prefer to have one account for everything whenever possible ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
The Reddit exodus has begun! My only regret is not learning about lemmy and the fediverse before things blew up over there.
I've been greately enjoying it so far, especially now that I'm making small contributions
Reddit won't work on my phone anymore so I had to find somewhere new, and most other places are alt right cesspits
Excuse my ignorance, but can Lemmy and the others handle a Reddit exodus?
It's kind of awesome :) A question to others here. I mostly see stuff from beehaw and lemmy.ml on All. Are these the most active servers?
@Parsnip8904
I think so. There was also jeremmy.ml but it doesn't seem to be reachable right now.
Thank you :) I remember seeing a solarpunk and another science server in the list but haven't seen anything from those in my all feed either.
@Parsnip8904
It can be because no one on your instance is following communities from over there. There needs to be at least one follower of a topic/community before posts are pulled to the instance you're on.
@Parsnip8904
So if you want to follow a community on another instance which your own instance doesn't know about, take the URL of the community from the remote instance and put it in the search field on your own instance and then you can follow it. After that new posts from there will show up
Thanks a lot! I'm going to try this out now. I wish there was a sidebar or something that explained some gotchas like this.
I still have no idea what I'm doing :)
Hello world! My first ~~Kenny~~ Lemmy comment! I have no idea what I'm doing :D all I know is I'm mad at hell and I'm not going to take it anymore! In regards to Reddit anyway hehe.
I will kinda miss Reddit, but if Lemmy gets a good following I imagine it should be better than Reddit ever was ๐Ÿ˜Ž
it's absolutely awesome here! :โ -โ D
I feel like being part of the internet of my youth again.
I did not even know lemmy was a thing till people on reddit started talking about it
i tried lemmy a few months ago but i didn't find enough content. I'm happy to see popularity is going up, and the new android app is a real game changer
I tried looking at google trends to see if there are recent spikes in searches for lemmy, but it's a bit had because they didn't categorize for the lemmy software.
a few years ago it was literally a handful of ppl posting 90% of links and talking to each other, witnessing firsthand how complicated it is to get over that initial user retention bump, but iโ€™m convinced weโ€™re over it now :)

Cheers! Lemmy has been awesome so far!
I just need Mlem to be developed more, or have some other iOS developer come in.

On Desktop, it seems Lemmy is at its best right now.

Personally I'm excited for my Lord of the meme (lotr memes)s server to eventually get people of the same interest.
happy to be here. Is lemmy named after lemmings?
i cant help but worry its going to go south as everything does once a critical mass is hit
hell yeah hell yeah dudes rock
It is cool to see this platform getting some attention as reddit's biggest mistake draws nigh.
This has happened in R's past: see Voat (I wont link it here). I hope we can keep this an open and engaging community without all that hatred.
Lemmy and the fediverse are such unique and cool concepts. I hope to see Lemmy grow even more in the future!
Thanks for the welcome! I'm still a bit confused by how this all works, but not gonna lie I think it's pretty cool and I wish I knew about this earlier.
@CheshireSnake
You're welcome! Feel free to ask whatever questions you might have :)
This site's like a breath of fresh air, small communities and the excitement of not quite know what you're doing lol, no muscle memory open close and open again
I hope Lemmy does well whether reddit implodes or not. Great concept!
I just joined today and first impression is great. Seems like a lot of nice people ended up under the same ceiling. :)
I am so excited to discover how to navigate around here! looking forward to all of you :)
I'm done with Reddit once July 1st hits...it'll be a change but once Lemmy takes off I can totally see it being a great replacement...already feels like home!
reddit refugee here! So far so good except thereโ€™s not a native app for lemmy on iOS so Iโ€™m using a safari โ€œadd to Home Screenโ€ webapp for lemmy.ml , works pretty good!
I like it here so far.

Let's hope Lemmy becomes a real alternative for reddit. The infrastructure looks good, now we just need the communities.
Opening this post crashed jerboa 3 times ๐Ÿ˜‚
After a day or so yes, fortunately
Okay. Strange that it needed a day for it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Its so nice to see decentralized social media becoming more mainstream hopefully everyone will be off the big platforms soon
Maybe I'll become more active now ๐Ÿค”
Let's keep it going!
