Over the past few days, with worries of r/genzedong being banned, we have seen a major uptick in new accounts created. The admin team at Lemmygrad and, I’m sure, the whole community as well would like to welcome you here! Lemmygrad is built by communists and for communists, there is no censorship here and no worries about being banned for being Marxist-Leninists.
Lemmygrad is not too different from what you’re used to on Reddit. We have our own c/genzedong community, as well as unique communities such as c/palestine, c/prolewiki, c/feminism and even c/me_IRA, which is very much alive and well on Lemmygrad.
Some other advantages of Lemmygrad over Reddit is our federated aspect (anyone can make their instance and federate with us), our ML community, and of course our hands-off approach. There are no investors to please here, there are no CIA agents moderating content. You can talk about piracy, you can say what you want to do to fascists, without being reported by a lib and suspended for it.
We have had to enable account applications for a while now as we were under a fascist raid not too long ago, but please be assured that we get around to approving accounts very, very quickly.
Finally, if there is anything that you need help with regarding lemmygrad, please feel free to ask in this thread! We hope that the switch will not be too confusing for you, and that you will adopt lemmygrad as your new communication and memeing platform!
To give an idea of how many applications we’ve had, I counted 130 new users in the past 3 days, all (or at least 99%) from Genzedong.
There are dozens more to come…dozens! :dancingsicko:
Also wanna say that lemmy has smartphone apps for android and iOS.
I took my sweet time despite being a long term Lemmy member, because I wanted to have a certain level of education as someone still between socialism and communism. HK riots opened my eyes and Bayarea’s (where are you T_T) content really helped reverse years of brainrot since childhood.
Yeah, I getcha
I’ve made an account here a bit ago, but now with all the NATO propaganda plaguing Reddit, I’ve finally decided to abandon it completely. It was just not worth it anymore.
Anyway, I’m interested in the “federative” and instancing part of Lemmygrad. Where can I learn more? I’d be interested in contributing this way 😊
To check out federation in action, just click on “All” on the homepage next to “Subscribed” and “local”!
Anyone can create a Lemmy instance. Being federated means that instances can talk to each other. So you can subscribe to communities hosted in other instances and post/comment on other instances with your Lemmygrad account without having to create an account in that specific instance.
Best way to describe it is like email. People can sign up on gmail or yahoo, but still email each other.
On lemmy you can subscribe to communities on other instances, and see them in your feed / front page here. You do this by pasting https://lemmy.ml/c/lemmy_support or whatever community into the search bar here, then going to that community and subscribing to it.
We stan commie shitposting over here!
I cross-posted from /r/InformedTankie to about 13 or so subreddits with the Lemmygrad link.
I think more people should be incoming today.
Thanks for getting the word out!
Yeah, I’m going to try it again soon, but “soon” will probably mean in another day or two as I don’t want to overdo it.
The Gen Zedonged me here. i m done with reddit suspension, i wanna go to a proper leftist gulag properly managed by stalinist tankies with self-crit and then everybody clapping and the whole 9 yards the next time and not some measly red stripe, by fascist-copypasta-circlejerk
Good to be here!
Super happy to have an alternative to reddit. Thanks to everyone who has built and is building this!
Having some trouble with using remmel as it won’t recognise my log in. Tried changing passwords but figured my account is new so it might be best to try again tomorrow.
It’s great to be here
We have a world to win!
There is a major disadvantage it being “built by communists and for communists”. Communist ideas must be spread.
True, but at the same time one thing does not exclude the other. Us having discussions inside our community increase the flow of ideas that we share elsewhere. If we begin discussing ways to organize propaganda from here to other social media, it would be even better
Test Comment, Communism will win
Hi. Anyone else using lemmur 0.8.0 (from the Play Store on Android) having trouble signing in? “LemmyApiException: could’t_find_that_username_or_email”
I have that same problem. It’s weird because posts from lemmygrad show up just fine.
