Is the intent for sub mods to eventually control and host their own subs like Mastodon instances?
Could be an interesting tactic to do stuff like block out users of the inevitable T_D clone from stuff like queer discourse, and it should solve most of the issues people have with Reddit admins and powermods.
I'm paying close attention to this one myself. I have high hopes for Lemmy and can't wait to put up a server. But my understanding is that AP support is a bit of a ways off.
It's looking good so far though. I've been tempted to put up a server to play with it, but without AP it'll just kinda sit there as my solo play thing.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
