Just found this site today and it’s fuckin cool. Stoked to be here.
Welcome comrade, leave your coat by the door. Great to have you here.
I appreciate it, comrade. Do you happen to know where I could read about this site and it’s origin? Maybe there is an ‘about’ section I’m not seeing. Also, do you know if there is data harvesting?
A developer could give you a better answer, but from what I understand, it was developed by comrades who are active in our community and continuing to improve it. They did an AMA on Reddit a while back, https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/guklhr/we_are_the_devs_behind_lemmy_an_open_source/?ref_source=embed&ref=share
Ah, thanks for sharing this resource. I’ll give it a read!
This site was built by @firstname.lastname@example.org and some other comrades, with the intention of replacing Reddit.
Lemmy doesn’t collect your data, and it’s hosted outside of the US so even if we did collect it, your data would be safe.
Thanks for this info. That’s good to know. I also did some digging and yeah it doesn’t seem like a CIA honeypot, but you never can be too careful.
Well thank you comrade. Happy to be here. Wish some more ppl from the reddit communism subs would abandon ship as well.
Henlo :waving hand:
Hello :) I have a question to ask. This may sound dumb but before the ban I got hooked on the cth daily discussion threads. Is there a ‘community’ or some kind of place where everyone can just shoot the shit here? If not no worries. I’m just making small talk and getting acquainted with the site.
Good call… just made one !email@example.com . I’ll announce it from the main sub.
Word. I don’t know if it’s something that’s needed here or not, but I guess we will see. Thanks!
there is also a matrix room which is pretty much a discord like chanel where people just talk about stuff https://riot.im/app/#/room/#internationale:matrix.org
Interesting, thank you. I’ve not used discord or matrix before. I will have to check this out.
have a good idea for our website? post here to suggest
