Hi! I'm British, I like music (grime, garage, hip-hop, R&B, and more!). I like art, culture, history, politics, & doomscrolling memes.

Also a touch of programming :)

A list of casual communities on Lemmy (that aren't just tech news or politics)
  • Thought I'd repost this over here too, seems relevant.

    Searching Lemmyverse is good for finding communities. [email protected] is also a nice tool for finding new places.

    I posted this on the other site but I thought I'd copy over here too, lots of good communities around to subscribe to if you want a more casual/fun frontpage that isn't just tech news, elon musk, or politics.

    note: all of these communities have posts. If they appear empty, it simply means nobody on the instance you use has visited them before (or you might have blocked them and forgot, I've done it before, lol)! I will try to keep this thread updated over time.

    Note: if you wish to auto-subscribe to all of the communities below, I have a post in the comments that describes how to do so.

    --- My rough criterion was:

    • Of interest to me or a wide audience
    • Has a decent amount of activity
    • Casual / fun / interesting / cool / funny / chatty communities.
    • 0 negativity/negative vibes, news, politics, overload of tech or niche tech news/info, etc.

    Note that music communities generally have low comment counts, from my experience.

    There's also:

    What happened to the main Piracy community
  • hexbear (a leftist instance) was defederated recently. lemmygrad.ml is "under discussion".

    lemmy.ml has too many general users thesedays imo, it would be very major to block it.

  • What happened to the main Piracy community
  • Nah lemmy.ml is still federated. You can see it listed here https://lemmy.world/instances

  • Trending Communities for Friday 11th August 2023
  • Just out of curiosity, what post sorting are you using? This can happen if you're using a tight sort, e.g "Top (6hr)"

  • What happened to the main Piracy community
  • Go to https://lemmy.world/settings and at the bottom, there's a Delete Account button.

  • What happened to the main Piracy community
  • [email protected]

    It's blocked from lemmy.world. I'd recommend using LASIM and migrating to another instance like https://lemm.ee/ (note: you will need to manually resubscribe to [email protected] on your new account, since LASIM won't be able to see it).

  • What happened to the main Piracy community
  • That's not a copy of the main piracy community, that's another piracy community that's hosted on lemmy.world

    The community people are talking about is [email protected], which is no longer accessible via lemmy.world

    It appears [email protected] is also blocked.
