"With the addition of federation with Mastodon/Pleroma to the Lemmy codebase there is a danger to Lemmy with the former clear delineation of the two spaces now possibly degenerating into an amorphous blob"

Do you think this is correct?


what is the point is building a federated alternative to plebbit then?
fuck that

@selea judging from the results so far 90% of the votes disagree with the sentiment.... so 🤷‍♂️

I'm surprised Lemmy hasn't attracted more users.

@dublinux @selea I was just looking into lemmy, and there's only 16 instances by the looks of it. Not really worth using yet unfortunately.

@selea @dublinux "let's adopt a common protocol to connect with other projects! oh no, now everything's connected, just like we wanted!"


@dublinux admin here. Yes, that will happen, but I don't see it as a problem. Lemmy is a platform focused heavily on discussion (same as Reddit), and instead of trying to separate different platforms and chasing a sense of "uniqueness" or "identity", IMO integrating Lemmy into the broader fediverse will benefit everyone by making the discussions that originated on Lemmy more accessible to other platforms, and vice versa.

@AgreeableLandscape @dublinux It's almost as if the Fediverse is about breaking down walled gardens or something...
