      The actual quality of discussions leave something to be desired, as of writing. But on paper it has everything to attract more users. The mobile experience is good, whether in a browser or one of the community-developed apps. Running an instance is relatively inexpensive and light on resources. NLnet recently awarded a grant to the developers for some big improvements. And now, cross-platform federation.

      There’s a sense that Lemmy is growing and I really hope it attracts more good folks.

        There is also data showing it's growing, both by the number of instances and the number of active users (although for now it seems like modest growth).

      I use and am hopefully going to start contributing to Lemmy soon. I like it. It’s going to take a while for me to get use to decentralized social media, but overall I like it. The downside is that most instances I’m in are quieter than Tildes. But the are plenty of positives for me personally that I’ll probably stick to using it.

      I've only used it for a week or so. I won't be implementing federation until way further down the road. So far, it's easy to set up with Docker and user-friendly imo.

      I use it and i like, the design is more traditional and similar to reddit, my impression is that tildes tends to be more general purpose in the themes of discussions, while lemmy like reddit has specific communities so if you want to discuss some specific topic and get a lot of content about it and there is a decent community there lemmy is the better choice i think , e.g. if you want to read about open source it's a better place to be in.

      but as mentioned there isn't really mechanism that encourages more high quality discussions (like the exemplary tag), notifications about new comments isn't that good so going in depth on a certain topic can be very hard.
