This is not a comprehensive list by any means, and is why I’m featuring this post and leaving it open to comments. I may update this as people make suggestions, and I encourage others to make their own variations on this list in the comments or in their respective versions of this community.

Also to clarify some terms here, by active I’m aiming for at least some commenting on recent-ish posts, not merely recent posts, and by the topic names…I’ll let the linked communities serve as examples.

🎨 Creative Communities 🎨

🗿 Humanities 🗿

🏅 Sports 🏅

Hope this helps any newcomers find some different communities to join and participate in!

p.s. although it’s now out of date, as some instances are no longer around (RIP Lemmy.film), this post is still a pretty useful resource for a broader range of communities than those listed here.

    I am very good at being online so I am definitely not just getting around to mentioning that I cross-posted this to our peer community [email protected] where some others have responded with some of the active communities they’ve found: https://lemmy.world/post/14734186

    If you’ve any you’d like to add, comments are open here as well!
