I love that I’m seeing more and more posts to Lemmy from Mastodon.
This one feature finally ties Lemmy in with the rest of the fediverse by providing the lacking feature: making top level posts. Lemmy (along with friendica!) will lead the way in making “groups” and forums in the fediverse, accessible from any platform you choose.

Lemmy has to make workarounds, because mastodon does not support subjects…


Well good point 😂 the problem is that it’s very few platforms which are supporting subjects , not only Mastodon who doesn’t. You will also have problems from Misskey and Pleroma for example.

Would be great to see subject lines supported in Mastodon. Anything that helps intercompatibiity is a win-win

@JackFromWisconsin @jakob I think, on the contrary, that’s right: Mastodon is a microblogging software and there’s no need for Mastodon to support a complete display of “subject + text” messages.

There are few projects that support these messages (Friendica, Hubzilla and bloggers like writefreely and plume) but they are more than enough 😅

It uses it as attachment…

And yes… i would prefer, if mastodon could handle subjects…


It would help to write up a guideline how to handle unknown objects. I would say something like “type: name” as a title followed by the summary + url or id, would be a good default.

If somebody wants to workout the details, this would make an excellent FEP. I would write it myself, if I didn’t have FEP-2e40 to finish and then a Client2Server one to write.
