Welcome to our new home in the Fed~~eration~~iverse. First of all- WOW we did not expect to surpass 300 users on this instance (and over 1K fediverse subscribers) within our first 48 hours and with little promotional effort. We are all excited to see where this long road goes.
Coming from Reddit and confused about Lemmy?
I had some stuff typed out, but honestly, this thread sums it up better. Check it out! It has infographics.
If you're still stressed out, remember that Lemmy is still new. Yes, it's ugly, but people said Reddit was ugly too (both are correct). As Lemmy grows, and #Rexxit continues, more tools will get made. Decentralization opens up a lot of possibilities we didn't have before. The future is bright.
Will other communities be setting up shop besides StarTrek, DaystromInstitute and Risa?
Yes! Eventually. Right now our focus is staying online, fast, and reliable which means keeping things focused while we find our footing. Daystrom, StarTrek and Risa were chosen to start off with because the three of them cover the "srs bsns ↔ shitposting" spread quite well.
If you are part of a community interested in being hosted on startrek.website, send me a DM and we can try to work something out.
Qapla'! How can I support?
We've started a Patreon here: Patreon.com/treksite. There's only one plan and it's just $4. If our growth continues like it has, we're going to need to upgrade our hosting very soon.
Will supporters have perks?
~~Yes! Eventually. We're still working that out. Which means we owe an extra big thank Thank you to those of you who are contributing now.~~
Probably not (unless you're Ferengi). See comment
If you have any questions for the team, please don't hesitate to ask in this thread (and yes the discussion thread for the Strange New Worlds season premiere will be up on /c/StarTrek later today, stay tuned!)🖖Takahe has limited support for this type: See Original Page
