It feels refreshing like the old days of Reddit minus the bad stuff. People discussing hobbies, music, technology and stuff.
The one thing this place needs now is gaming discussions.
A loosely moderated place to ask open ended questions
If your post is
it’s welcome here!
I’d say the lack of retro and pre-2010 gaming discussions is partly because of the novelty and the relatively small size of Lemmy. Since it’s small and a sort of direct competition to the already-massive Reddit, Lemmy users sort of self select. In other words, it’s generally people who care about FLOSS or federation, anarchism, privacy —just to name a few of the things that I’ve seen a lot of here.
But that does not mean at all that those are the only kinds of topics that you’ll find, nor that new kinds of discussions are possible! As other users have suggested, go ahead! Create your own community! Or join an already-existing one and talk about your interests! You might be pleasantly surprised!
