I know there were some oddities about this but I can’t find the previous discussion I had seen on the matter. I am subscribed to a handful of communities from when I joined here on sh.itjust.works, but it’s not consistent. Several communities appear fine in my feed despite my “subscription pending”.
But for new communities, the “subscribe” button is not actually a button, regardless if they’re here on sh.itjust.works or elsewhere. I could theoretically subscribe from the list of communities, but I’m interested in looking for communities on specific topics and I expect I could be scrolling for days before I find them. As soon as I use the search feature, I’m given a list without a column of “subscribe” links and I’m back to square one with needing to navigate directly to that community.
Am I the only one experiencing this? Is the source of this problem known? I’ve been advocating patience with the growing pains the threadiverse is likely to experience, but this is a really critical part of the experience that’s not working. I know I might be in the minority but I’m not here to scroll through the all-page.
