Additionally, the admins should determine a policy for commandeering abandoned communities. I know some websites have a policy where if no staff log in in [x] weeks, any user is allowed to request moderation. Maybe I should make another post about that.
This in particular is an excellent example. The only staff member, [@Eli@lemmygrad.ml](https://lemmygrad.ml/u/Eli), made this community, made (and deleted) two posts, and apparently hasn't done anything else for 3 years. This is an important community to the site and deserves attention.
As it stands, the sidebar is useless. It could explain the difference between Lemmygrad and the Lemmy software, link to better communities for contacting the devs for feature requests, give advice for people asking questions, link to relevant chatrooms if any, that kind of stuff. This preventative assistance helps prevent the place getting filled with useless, redundant or off-topic questions.

Automatically filtering out the post from my home page that I've already voted/seen. I mean it's annoying to browse through the same post again and again to see the new post in home page. So there should be an fix/Option where the post I've voted automatically gets hidden/removed from my home page. And I see new content each time I refresh the home.
Can the logo size please be changed from 96px to 128px (scaling factor of @4x) so that it will be significantly less blurry on most devices?
Not sure how this affects displays with a scaling factor of @3x. Ideally, separate images should be served depending on the device.

I saw [this post](https://lemmy.ml/post/169093) and learned about [gentrification](https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentrification); now I wonder if there are any plans to deal with potential gentrification of Lemmygrad.
Hi, I think lemmygrad.ml should use variations of the default light/dark themes with red accents instead of green.
- Keeping the layout similar yet colors distinct from other instances (especially lemmy.ml) makes it clear that you are on the same kind of site but a different instance, and that this one is very much red
- This is an easy fix to make (changing a few color codes in the .css files)
If you've put in a membership application, please hang tight. it can take anywhere between a few seconds and a few hours for the admins to get to your application, y'all are flooding in so fast.
Your applications are read by real humans, thank you for your patience.
There's enough news/propaganda about it lately, that i feel like Lemmygrad would benefit from having a community specifically for it. But I already moderate a lot of communities, so I don't feel like I should open that one.
As per the sidebar:
> 3. Be respectful. This is a safe space where all comrades should feel welcome, this includes a warning against uncritical sectarianism.
I think that we can both tell that this is outdated nonsense.
I've noticed this happening more and more lately, that joke/meme posts have gotten posted in communities meant for more serious posts. Since there are a number of communities meant for meme posts and other less serious content, it would be better for these posts to be made in those communities. Is there anything that moderators can do about this? Given how I've seen these things go in the past, I'm a bit concerned that the communities for serious discussion could end up as just another place for memes, which would be a detriment to Lemmygrad as a whole.
