Please reduce the amount of posts you are making here, this community is spamming the entire frontpage. If I want to browse /r/sino, I will go to reddit, and not to this mirror which doesnt even have the interesting part (comments).

I’d prefer this refreshing mirror on the front page over climate change doomerism and ‘here’s the latest scummy action the US government took today.’

I have no problem if there’s a max of posts of this forum that end up on the frontpage per time period. Filling up Lemmy’s frontpage is not my goal here.

Perhaps the site needs ranking algorithm changed to either limit proportion of front page for one community or raise rank for those with comments

there will be more similar instances of one community having much more posts in the future

What’s the goal of Lemmygrad?
And which posts do you want me to cut, oh overlords?

For me the goal is to be a platform where people can talk with each other. So I would go as far as banning bots completely. But it depends what other users and admins think.

Is that directed at me?
Which bots do I need to remove?
I’m the only one posting at the forum, are you targeting me as a bot and do I need to be banned?

For me the goal is to be a platform where people can talk with each other.

So like Telegram or Element messenger?
This place looks a lot like reddit in which such platform is used for slightly different reasons.

The options here are ‘[link to website/video or image] and/or text’.
So those are the categories one can choose from on this site.

If this place is there for discussions, I would like to make the suggestion that one should discuss what kind of discussions are to take place, who and how one would imagine it would benefit. What makes a good/bad discussion and how such a website should be designed to promote this?

If I may make suggestions:

  • The ability for someone to create a full comprehensive “thread” that catches an entire narrative instead of having to create new threads when new information arrives.
  • I’m probably the only one ever asking this, but the ability to create an entire first language supported by a second language in order for the narrator to free it’s audience from a bound set of capitalist or other ideologies’ duckspeak.

The goals of this forum:

  • Have /r/Sino have a place to flee to in case of the banhammer coming to their place. There’s a reason why their subreddit is called /r/Sino and not /r/China. Same goes for /r/Hong_Kong and /r/HongKong
  • Clear out false narratives related to China.
  • Show things happening in China that I consider are of importance, because there seems to be a ‘dark wall’ between positive/neutral and sometimes even negative things happening in China and the outside world.

Sorry, I assumed all your posts here were made by a bot script, simply because there were so many. I think if there are so many posts without comments, it can easily distract from actual discussions, and make it look like the site has low activity. I really like /r/sino, so the posts themselves are not a problem for me.

China is a country of over a billion people and it’s economy is growing at the fastest rate in human history. It’s growing and advancing mindboggingly fast. It’s rapidly approaching and surpassing the level of the US in terms of everything. Military, culture, education, you name it, they are surpassing it. The amount of progress going on these is so immense, it’s hard to keep up. And it’s a communist country. We are living in a time where communism has never been so successful in history and the rest of the world’s media are either turning a blind eye to it or make up outrageous American high school comedy/drama hyper-transparent you’ve got to be kidding me how can anyone be so stupidly gullible and yet the majority of people fall for it like toddlers to Santa Clause stories, glurge rumor bully quality lies in order to cover up anything positive happening in China.

That’s our current situation right now and it motivates me to put out there all the things happening in China. A LOT!!!

Sounds like https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/440

No no, that post is about limiting other languages. That will only steer away people from learning new languages. I especially want people who don’t know the language to LEARN the language, by providing the uninitiated a crutch, to help people how to learn to walk, instead of a motorized wheelchair.
The way to do it best in my view is to have people learn a language while simultaneously informing and entertaining people is to have:

  • First Language spoken
  • First Language large characters first place
  • Second Language small characters second place

A website in my view should be designed to make this easy to do.

P.S. I’m not going to post anything until the frontpage problem is resolved. I do not want any conflict. Please let me know so I can post again to my hearts content.

If you are using a bot, have you considered uploading the source code somewhere? Might be helpful for other people.

China’s rise has reached levels where it’s surpassing the US. Bilibili has the quality of youtube. And /r/Sino has 70k+ users.

I only posted half of the stuff that’s being done over there, mostly because the other half has too little to do with China and too much with the US and are all US articles.
They don’t even post them archived while it’s behind a paywall.

    这个论坛目前由一个不会说中文的人主持,他不是共产党员,而是一个反帝国主义、反附庸国的欧盟联邦主义者,他似乎在任何地方都找不到立足点,因为他国家的所有政党都是亲美附庸国的,所以暂时居住在这里。

    This forum is currently moderated by someone that does not speak Chinese and is not a communist, but an anti-imperialist, multi-polarist EU federalist that can’t seem to find a foothold anywhere, as all political parties in his country are pro-US vassal state, so resides here for the time being.
