Lemmy is a self-hosted link aggregation and discussion platform. It's like Reddit or Hacker News, but better. Content is organized into communities, so it's easy to subscribe to topics that you are interested in, and ignore others. Voting is used to bring the most interesting items to the top.

contributing

Please, keep in mind that you are a participant, not a customer. DONATE

If you'd like to help the Lemmy network grow, you can contribute in different ways.

  1. Donate to development team or the administrator of your server (if you have the means to do that).
  2. Set up your own instance, to make federation stronger and healthier, with many small servers.
  3. Spread the word. Invite your friends. Explain why it's important.
  4. Contribute with code. Send a pull request. Resolve an issue. Take a bounty.
  5. Help translating. Design promo materials. Print and distribute stickers.

Thank you. See you in Lemmy.
