what’s stopping 8 different instances from hosting a ‘politics’, ‘funny’, ‘fediverse’, community?
these duplicate communities defeat the goal to replace reddit.
I’d like to see a live replication kind of thing. So if you’re on !email@example.com it can merge with !firstname.lastname@example.org and they super federate and advertise that this group exists, replicated, on four or five lemmy servers and the client tracks that every X hours and knows what the failovers are.
Solves some of the fragmentation issues and the backup/archive issues at the same time. Might even help with load balancing a bit if we have some kind of routing algo on the endpoints.
I know all the contributors have a lot more bigger fish to fry this week, but I’d love to see this eventually implemented - this would be a huge quality of life feature that I think would really sell the platform to new users dipping their toes with Lemmy.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
