  • Welcome!

    I also moved over from Reddit, some time ago now, Lemmy is great if you don’t mind it being quieter and you’re not into super niche things.

    If you are into super niche things, definitely make those communities and begin fostering growth by posting, it’s what I’m doing for my home country of Wales, slow but steady and all that.

    Hope you enjoy Lemmy!

  • I’ll be honest, I’m unsure how these things are related. That being said, I’m all for platform scrutiny, and I’m aware of this controversy.

    Substack have since reversed their decision on this and have taken action against a number of Nazi sources, though I would absolutely agree that more could and should be done.

    For what it’s worth, have you had a look at the deep dark areas of Lemmy lately? Many a Nazi and god knows what else over here too, unfortunately.

  • First let me say, thanks for taking the time to write this out, hugely appreciate you for that.

    Will definitely look to introduce more studies that I can then pick apart, can see how that would help with length and substance. I’ve been trying to walk the line between being too academic and too, well, not. I always had the thought that a vast majority of people would likely turn off if they start seeing academic studies references and the likes. That being said, I don’t actually have the data on if that would be true for my readership, so it’s worth a shot.

    Combining these is a great idea, I’m going to go ahead and do that now, thanks!

    Have huge problems with removing “I” statements from my work, so it’s always great to have another set of eyes on an article, thanks for pointing this out. I think I need to start reading over my articles more as just an interested reader than as the author, once I’ve finished up and decide to publish something, practice makes perfect I suppose.

    Thanks for everything here.
