    I like the Beehaw spirit, and I think we should aspire to get their level of moderation.

    I am always a bit skeptical about posting content on one of their communities as they are defederated from LW and SJW, preventing most of the users (especially new joiners) to access it. What do you think?

      LW + SJW accounts for about 24k of a total 60k MAU … so a little under half the lemmy-verse, on top of which there’s also kbin.

      Something to think about though is the difference between user count and actual engagement.

      A lot of the Twitter to mastodon migrants talked about this, finding that you could get more meaningful engagement on mastodon compared to pretty superficial vacuous stuff on twitter.

        I stand corrected, but 40% of a platform is still a lot.

        About the Twitter/Mastodon comparaison, I hope LW and SJW have not reached Twitter’s level of toxicity yet

          Oh for sure … still, the fediverse can surprise you in how distributed it is, even with big mega instances like lemmy.world and mastodon.social.

          Generally, it seems, about half of the users are happy on comparatively small to tiny instances.

      I don’t really mind, I think it’s nice to give people a reason to join smaller instances anyway, ie. telling them they’ll get the quality content and good vibes of Beehaw if they avoid these two monster instances. But for targeting a large audience, yeah that doesn’t work!
