Is lemmy an empires fandom space?
99.999% of the posts and comments (i counted) either hate or unconditionally love USA/Russia/China. so boring

With lemmy it is possible to upload any image to the lemmy server (including archive websites), while writing a post without even posting. This could be used to upload pornographic, right winged or other illegal content and use it or share it on other platforms, even if the content is on your lemmy instance. In Germany advocates even use as an evidence that you had illegal content on your website, including the exact date. This could be very expensive for everyone who is managing a lemmy instance. Another problem with the upload is, that a lot of images can be uploaded, without even using them in a post, just filling up the server with garbage data. Attackers could use this to automatically fill up the web space and provoke a crash. Who is the owner of uploaded and shared images and posts? If a lemmy post gets shared, a copy of the image will be created. If the image doesn't have a share-alike licence, the owner of the instance could get in trouble. I am not an advocate! Those are just things I thought about, which could cause trouble if I would have a lemmy instance.

What would be a good name for a lemmyBB flagship instance?
I dont think sounds good, so im looking for other suggestions.

Hubzilla problem ??
I have just become a member of Hubzilla on the hub as PopZilla - My issue seems pretty basic, I have set up my profile etc but I only seem to ba able to see my own posts in a stream. I can't find a local stream, a network stream, indeed any stream / network or timeline view where I can see other folks posts. I might be missing something obvious, I am no doubt an idiot, but any help would be great... Thanks in advance for any help received 😁🙏🏼

How do you handle mental health?
Been dealing with some mental health issues that make me barely functional persons. That affects me. I just wondering how it effects you?

How much computing power and storage space is your instance using?
I'm really curious as to what kind of power it takes to run Lemmy. I know it's pretty light, but how light? Especially curious about tge larger instances like and Lemmygrad. What kind of CPU are you using and how much of that CPU is occupied? How much ram? How much internet bandwidth? How much storage for the database and the images?

Is it really even possible to create a 'successful ' lemmy instance?
Ok , here we go. I like lemmy a lot. Mastodon and all the others are too complicated with too many dam options for threads. Not to mention I hate the Twitter layout. Like look, I want lemmy to have more users. The lack of engagement here is just beyond sad. I've seen a lot of lemmy instances with like 1 user a month. Seriously? What the fuck? I'm entertaining a thought to create a lemmy instance, but is there even a point? Should i even bother? I feel like the issue with these reddit alternatives, is the LACK of content and users. What do you think?

How, or CAN you, connect your mastodon instances to lemmy?
So I'm on a few but I can't add ? Why? Can you help me please ?
