EDIT: Just crossed 26000!


Almost! At the time of this post, lemmy.world has a whopping 25733 users and is growing fast.

Since my last post yesterday, it has added 4000 new users, making it the clear second-largest lemmy instance out there. Also quickly catching up to lemmy.ml’s 36000 (not taking new signups).

beehaw.org (3rd largest) sits at 12500 users, partly because of more restrictive registration requirements.

Exciting to see all this growth!

    We’re here! 10 year reddit user, deleted my account last week. Forcing myself to post and not just lurk. Fellow lurkers please comment a bit. Once traffic is decent you may resume your lurking. Thank you

      15 years for me, ditched reddit a few days ago. platform is toxic, management doesnt care about the userbase at all.

      This is for sure a good thing to note. While bits of potential advertisement can be made by lurking, new users will be more inclined to join and stay if they see people.

      Yeah, I am a long time lurker from Reddit as well. Now I started a community for back country skiing [email protected] . Feel free to come watch me awkwardly post trip pictures trying to get the community going :-)

          Sorry to hear about the concussion! Hopefully you still enjoy the community.

      Hi, fellow lurker! I’ve being doing my part commenting here and there. I’m loving this place!

      Crawling out of lurking to show support. Using Jerboa right now, but I keep getting timeouts and it’s making browsing clunky since all my upvotes/comments are being undone.

      But otherwise I love the concept of the fediverse so I’m here to stay

        I’m getting that problem too. I saw that word - fediverse - a lot recently and it seemed like a concept that would be beyond me so I didn’t even look. Now that I have, my mind is blown and technology continues to amaze me. The networks just get larger and I love it.

      Similar. About seven years? Deleted and moved to lemm.ee and frankly I think it’s good that we’re having to learn about federation etc. An appropriate barrier to participation that is easily overcome if you just give it a little bit of your time. Reddit can go insert itself into the anus of the wicked witch of the west. And Spez can do the same.

      8 years on Reddit and it’s refreshing having something new to learn to use

    I think Lemmy.world is the new meta right now. All Reddit refugees overflow this instance as this is the most generic one and by looking and the number of communities it’s the smarter choice.

    I just hope that the influx of users won’t cause too many server issues. I can already imagine what the devs feel like to have so many active users without mentally and technologically preparing for it

      Hello from kbin.social. Isn’t federation and diversity great?!
