[META] Creating a new community is easy, but to get people on board, you need to create some content.
If you create a community, please try and populate it with content. I see a lot of new communities with 0-1 posts from the mod. That's not nearly enough to get people engaged - users are going to see that it's a ghost town and leave. If you have enough interest to create a community, you probably know *something* about the subject matter, so PLEASE add some posts (5-10 would be a good start). Maybe some questions to get people talking, even popular reposts from other sites. It sucks shouting into a void, but if you don't do it, everyone else will also be shouting into a void. Also please consider whether you *need* to create a community! When there are 100 million users of the site, there may be 1000 people who are interested in the same exact niche tabletop RPG as you, but there are <500,000 users here for now, so you'll be lucky to find 10. Consider creating a thread in a broader community (like boardgames) until you have enough people talking in the thread that it gets messy - *then* it's time to create a separate community. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

[META] [Crosspost] Announcing a new Search Engine for Lemmy
cross-posted from: > I shared bits and pieces of this before, but it's officially up and running now: > > This is an enhanced search engine for Lemmy. With a few primary goals: > * You can choose a preferred instance. After choosing what your primary instance is, and performing a search ALL links will open in that instance. > * This aims to be a replacement for using `` in Google, but just for the fediverse. > * You can filter the search results by: > * Instance -- This will filter the results to only show communities that belong to a particular instance. Just type something like `instance:lemmy.wrold` or `instance:`. This is separate from your preferred instance, such that you can search for posts on while still opening them on > * Community -- You can refine the search by a specific community. You use the same syntax that you'd use here `community:!`. > * Author -- Similar to the above you can also filter by a specific author such as: ``. > * The entire thing is open-source. You can view the code and even host your own instance... See more details here: > > NOTE: This only supports Lemmy instances for now. Other fediverse type instances may be in the future depending on how this works out. > > I've been working on this over just the last few weeks, so it hasn't had a chance to crawl much of the fediverse yet. For now it only supports `` and `` but other preferred-instances will come online as time goes by. > > If anyone finds any bugs, and I'm sure you will, or if anyone has any suggestions PLEASE raise an issue on GitHub for me to track. Lastly, if anyone wants to help contribute please feel free to reach out. > > **NOTE TO SERVER ADMINS: You can prevent your site from being crawled by adding `lemmy-search` to your robots.txt for the user-agent.**

[META] New is looking for moderators
As we have pass our thousandth post and continue to grow, I'd felt like it would be a good idea to have more than one moderator for this community. You do not have to be on to apply. It shouldn't take all day to moderate, but it's not trivial either. Please only apply if you think you'd be able to moderate. Please message me with the following information if you would like to apply: - Your timezone. - Any moderation experience? (Not required, but if so, give basic details. Not just on Lemmy, any platform.) - Any other details you want to give. **Expectations** You are expected to moderate for spam and uncivil content in general and handle any other situations that may occur but also uphold the rules of on this community, which are here: Also, help other users when needed. This isn't exactly the most formal process, but this is a casual community and most of us are new, so I'm trying to make it as simple as possible.

Tails: A Place on Lemmy for Mastodon Posts
Given the shared underlying protocol, I didn't like that if I saw something interesting on Mastodon, and wanted to post it on Lemmy, I'd have to screenshot it and/or re-attribute it to me rather than the original author. Tails is an experimental community. Instead of announcing just what a Lemmy user has posted, it announces what a Fediverse actor has posted. This means that, so far, it's featured posts from Mastodon accounts like Mr Lovenstein, warsandpeas, George Takei, Low Quality Facts, and other interesting people. Lemmy users have been able to reply to the author, and have also replied to those other Mastodon accounts that responded. You can see for yourself at ! (the usual rules apply: if you're the first person on your instance to do this, you'll likely get a blank screen or an error. Wait 10 secs or so, press refresh, and you should have it).

    Q: Why do I get a 404?

    A: At least one user in an instance needs to search for a community before it gets fetched. Searching for the community will bring it into the instance and it will fetch a few of the most recent posts without comments. If a user is subscribed to a community, then all of the future posts and interactions are now in-sync.

    Q: When I try to create a post, the circle just spins forever. Why is that?

    A: This is a current known issue with large communities. Sometimes it does get posted, but just continues spinning, but sometimes it doesn’t get posted and continues spinning. If it doesn’t actually get posted, the best thing to do is try later. However, only some people seem to be having this problem at the moment.
