Should a Lemmygrad FAQ be put together?

I’ve noticed over the years that new users tend to have overlapping questions, such as what theory they should read, how to find a party, what Marxism-Leninism even is, ect.

So should we put together a FAQ specifically for Lemmygrad users?

If you want to help put a FAQ together, please comment below.


It could also be useful on prolewiki, maybe in the essays section. My main gripe with mediawiki software is it’s actually really hard to find information unless you know exactly what you’re looking for. But definitely we could host it externally (not necessarily on prolewiki if you don’t want to or it’s impractical), since lemmy doesn’t yet have features for permanent, unmoving content

I’d be totally fine with using Prolewiki for it. It would also give us a chance to send technically official traffic over there. and imo, it’s important the open-source ML projects support each other.


Yes, I think its a very good idea. This could also be taken from.


Short answer: Yes



I think if we make a FAQ it should not be too long and expansive. In my experience it dissuades newbies from trawling through a massive document. Thoughts on this?

Tbh I have no idea where to even start on making a FAQ, and I don’t feel like I’m the person to put it together either.

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
