  • What app are you using? If you’re on iOS, I know the Voyager app allows for selection of filtering your search to Communities, Users, Posts, etc. and Lemma has a pretty good smart search that has found the communities I was looking for.

    As far as I am aware, at least one user on your instance needs to be subscribed to a community on a different instance or at least specially searched for it to be searchable. In your case, if no one on lemmy.world is subscribed to or specifically searched for lemmy.radio/c/amateur_radio, you wouldn’t see it on a search from you lemmy.world account. Otherwise you’ll need to use a browser to find the community and seek it out on the web. Not super streamlined yet, I agree.

    The only other more functional browser searches that I know of are:

    https://lemmyverse.net/ and https://browse.feddit.de/

    Alright thanks for that. Sorry I did a ban without warning. Still figuring out the whole modding thing. I think I’ll need to get back to a desktop to see the unban option.

    edit: Alright it shows on my end that you are now unbanned. Remember not to iron any four-leafed clovers (don’t press your luck!). Happy dad-ing out there.

    I’m sorry I didn’t list a reason for the ban. It was your comment that “I had married someone who stayed hot and wasn’t a dominating bitch.” It didn’t seem appropriate for the community that has a pinned message about keeping the jokes appropriate enough for a kid.

    It had nothing to do with any interaction on a different community. Ain’t nobody got time for that.



  • That’s a creative idea. I would read it. But if the goal is to reach and engage more people, then it needs to appeal to them. Like previously said, most people just don’t seem to care about privacy. So what do they care about? Getting likes/approval from others? Networking? Following popular channels? It’s kind of a catch 22, because celebrities won’t go to a platform without potential followers, and followers won’t either without someone to follow.

    I can definitely relate on seeing the potential of the fediverse. I even told some of my friends, “This is the evolution of how the Internet is going to work. Isn’t that exciting??” And I’m usually met with blank stares.

    I think the social media giants will slowly continue to become less relevant and there will be a natural shift toward alternatives. The more polished the alternatives become and the more the communities will prove valuable with actual human connections, the more they will slowly appeal to the masses. I think many people are sucked into the world of consumerism and cannot imagine an alternative.
