    If two of the same topic is posted, the one in the instance with more people will be higher on the active list than the other, so if you’re subbed to both, you’ll see that one first and interact with it. I’ve seen duplicate topics across several of my subs on Reddit regularly.

      Yeah but I’d see one, scroll a little further and see another. Then scroll a little further and see another. Sure you might see some repeated posts on Reddit, but the problem is exacerbated if there are multiple instances of the same topic.

      For example, if I saw the same post on /r/Google and /r/Android. The problem could be four times or more worse due to there being multiple instances of Google and Android federated.

      I’m enjoying Lemmy, but it’ll be interesting to see how this might be dealt with for those that want a single feed per topic.

      Are there any Lemmy clients that support viewing multi-communities? For example, I’d prefer viewing all posts for all instances of Android over the combined subscribed list.

        I thought that was built in to all Lemmy clients. All non-home instances I’m subscribed to are presented as @instance because the instance location is just as important as the sub’s name.

          Just to clarify, I don’t want to view all of the content from my subscribed communities in a single view. I want to be able to tap on something like Android and then only view the content from all instances with the same community name that I’m subscribed to.

            I wouldn’t even want it restricted to the same community name, make it customizable. I’d love to be able to set up Android and FossDroid on the same feed for example. Or all the different selfhosted/homelab/datahoarders/etc. communities.

            Not right now. I imagine this would be added in an app sooner than the official distribution due to priorities.
