    Why 80% of New Zealand is Empty [23:10] RealLifeLore
  • Sure! Sorry, only saw your comment now

  • What is the maximum number of active users on an instance before the financial burden gets too high for the admins?
  • That's another point. I guess over time some instances would aggregate in clusters. There is probably low interest for a niche software development English speaking instance to federate with a local Japan speaking city instance

  • What is the maximum number of active users on an instance before the financial burden gets too high for the admins?
  • You are basically asking people to work for free for you

    No, the point I'm making is that it's easier to have a 3k instance requiring 80€ donations from its member, who would feel closer to the rest of the members and their administration team, than a 21k instance requiring 560€ per month.

    To be honest, I also think that we should move away from the donations model to an open subscription model. 80€ per month for 3k users is 0,32€ per user, you can implement a system where users pay 0,5€ for their cost, and can even pay more and offer to cover the subscriptions costs for other users. That way you give a real sense of community among members, and allow the instance admins to have more financial stability.

  • What is the maximum number of active users on an instance before the financial burden gets too high for the admins?

    Pretty straight question.

    I see Lemm.ee is now the second most populated instance based on https://lemmy.fediverse.observer/list, with 3634 monthly active users.

    I also know that Lemmy devs said that > lemmy.ml is bigger than beehaw, and only costs 80 euros per month for a dedicated server.

    https://lemmy.ml/comment/2372503

    As lemmy.ml has 3561 monthly active users, should we consider that around 3,5k-4k users is the sweet spot for an instance population, and stop recommending the ones that reached that threshold?

    What are your criteria for choosing an instance other than Lemmy.world?

    Hello everyone,

    Based on the recent instability of Lemmy.world, a lot of people have been wondering whether they should move to another instance.

    I used to look at https://lemmy.fediverse.observer/list and recommend people to pick a generalist instance with as much users as possible (using the 1m column), usually

    • lemm.ee
    • sh.itjust.works
    • sopuli.xyz
    • lemmy.one
    • reddthat.com
    • etc.

    Of course, there are also the regional options

    • feddit.de
    • lemmy.ca
    • aussie.zone
    • feddit.nl
    • feddit.uk
    • midwest.social
    • etc.

    And of course, the thematic instances

    • programming.dev
    • lemmy.blahaj.zone
    • discuss.tchncs.de
    • lemmy.dbzer0.com
    • etc.

    I used to recommend the most populated instances, as we know that All depends on users subscribed from the instance.

    However, now with the introduction of the Lemmy Community Seeder (https://github.com/Fmstrat/lcs), which > tells your instance to pull the top communities and the communities with the top posts from your favorite instances

    do you think this should still apply? I have seen promising instances (high uptime, already on 18.4 that was released today)

    • discuss.online
    • lemmy.ninja
    • unilem.org
    • etc.

    Would you recommend users to join those as well, assuming that the admins use the LCS to populate the All feed? Most of us remember the Vlemmy.net disappearance, and it's difficult to tell users to join small instances based on good faith, but at the same time, every instance needs to start somewhere, and they should be given a chance.

    What do you think?

    When you notice Lemmy is quieter than usual, then have a look at the Lemmy.world status

    Seems like they are under attack again, will those people never stop? I feel sorry for the admin team.
