    I’m sort of hoping for a forum/reddit-y combo. My god I miss forums for niche weird stuff that I’m autistic about, but I also like consuming media at an ADD pace.

    Am I the problem?

    Lemmy does feel a bit cozy, kind of reminds me of the best of those worlds. It’ll be neat to watch it grow… hopefully.

      You are not alone, and I’m starting to feel that treating Lemmy like a federation of web forums instead of Reddit replacement would fit the underlying model better.

        wassadifference - reddit was after all just a bunch of message boards that made it easy to skip from one to another.

        Imagine if zetaboards - or whatever came before that - had come up with the idea to make it easy for users to cross between different boards.

          That’s actually cool and a bit like what I had in mind. But it doesn’t seem to offer an actual hierarchical view of the lemmyverse.

          It would be nice to have a forum style clear treeview of the forums (instances) and their subforums (communities) with activity indicators etc to make browsing and discovering content straight forward. Then if you subscribe to a community it would also show in it’s own treeview that the user could arrange to their liking.

      I like Lemmy for what it is. Feels like a return to an earlier web experience.
