Hey folks!

Recent Reddit refugee here. I loved subreddits like r/AskReddit, r/BestOfRedditorUpdates, and r/AmITheAsshole. Are there any communities here that are similar text dumps, and actually populated? It seems like most equivalents just have a handful of posts.

Thanks!

    [email protected] (This is the main one)

    [email protected] (This doesn’t get as much posts)

    [email protected] (This one is dead)

    [email protected] (This seems active, there are a lot of bot reposts from reddit tho. You can view it using archive.is to view the original without giving reddit traffic, or use an adblocker if you are visiting directly.)

    Edit: It seems like the AITA replacement is just mirroring reddit. There are not much discussion in the lemmy comment.

    Edit 2: Someone below pointed out [email protected] is active, yay I love drama 😅 😟

        lemmit.online was an interesting concept when lemmy didn’t have a lot of organic content, but now it just feels like spam. The OPs are not even aware that their content is being reposted to a different website let alone participate in the discussion on lemmy. I especially feel this for communities that depend on discussions like AmItheAsshole, tifu, nostupidquestions, etc. Having the lemmit mirror confuses new lemmy users.

    Lemmyverse.net is a nice way to search for communities. If you press the home icon at the top right you can choose your home instance so you can log in and subscribe to communities in other instances.

    Look for them, a lot of those reddit communities have been set up on lemmy as well.

    If you check out lemmit.online you will find bot reposts of reddit threads. Useful until this place gets more content.

    There’s asklemmy and askkbin. Maybe you’d find that helpful

    I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “text based”.

    You mean with long text posts? Long comments? Just not being memes?

      This community is text based. Communities like c/pics are image based. OP wants communities that are focused on discussion rather than sharing images.

      I’m guessing they are meaning communities which aren’t image or meme based yeah. But the fediverse seems more focused on text based threads in its formatting I would say (I’m using Kbin but image posts don’t really stand out that much more than others, unlike Reddit where images were huge. Can’t speak for Lemmy users)
