I don’t really think Lemmy.ml will have very good retention of new users. Because:
So it is not surprising that new users will get turned off by this and leave (or move to beehaw).
They using a forked version of an earlier version of Lemmy (from before there was federation functionality). They have built up some additional features that Lemmy doesn’t have, which is why they don’t just migrate to the latest version of Lemmy.
They are working on migrating. Here is a post from (I think) an Admin that explains more (originallinkk might be broken but you can see some of the post in my beehaw link): https://beehaw.org/post/299431

They also funded a lot of low quality and questionable science to promote drinking a lot of milk.
Open source LLM’s are catching up fast and are good enough to be very dangerous on their own.

Yeah I agree, I would really like to see more discussion on Lemmy and beehaw in particular. I think this is because:
One thing to bear in mind is that reddit started off by creating fake accounts that would post links and discuss things. It is definitely an option to do that on Lemmy and it might already be happening a bit with tools like gpt-4.
It is very hard to learn on your own. You will have problems that are completely new to you. Luckily most of these problems have ready been saved by someone, google and chatGPT is your friend.

These are my two favourite films with magicians:
I think the reason they are good is that both the audience on the films and the viewer watching the films are both surprised by what happens
It looks like another plug-in will let code be run in-chat: https://nitter.net/gdb/status/1638971232443076609?s=46&t=1iZbfAwzeelxQJ_-htSPzA
These are good points. In general I think it is good to increase bus frequency everywhere.
However I do still think that we should prioritise adding bus services to try and maximize usage (and stop as many car journeys as possible). Population density is definitely a factor here but (as you pointed out) so are other things like car usage in the area.
Two objective things that I can think of where cargo bikes might be better:
I guess one of the main problems is that in some cases suburbia doesn’t have the population density for bus services to be cost affective (buses should be subsidised but cost is still a factor). Even if everyone in suburbia stopped driving this would still be a problem.
One solution is to have some sort of local transport hub where there are more frequent bus services as well as facilities to store bikes/scooters. This would probably only work well if you have cycle path infrastructure linking suburbia to these transport hubs. There will probably still need to be buses going to suburbia for people who can’t bike/scooter to the transport hubs.
I think it just has the same themes as Lemmy.ml
One thing that might work is if you have an android phone with Dracula theme and use the jerboa app.
Jerboa should pick up the colour scheme from your phone (at least it does for me)
Would you like to tell me how can I have Dracula theme specifically?
I’m not really sure, the people who run your instance would need to add it. You could run your own instance and add it yourself (this repo has some examples of custom ui themes: https://github.com/2xx04/lemmy-ui-themes).
P.S. BTW, I saw your response on Mastodon and it seems to be don’t support embed images via Markdown from Lemmy’s
Yes federation with mastodon/pleroma isn’t perfect right now. I believe the devs are working on it.
The biggest difference is (and will likely always be) that LemmyNet instances are federated using activity pub. This means that posts, content and comments are shared across different activity pub instances.
For example I have seen your post and am commenting from the beehaw instance even though you are using the Lemmy.ml instance.
Lemmy is able to federate with mastodon and pleroma so you will see comments from there occasionally too.
The main benefit of this (IMO) is that users don’t get locked in to a website (e.g. facebook, Instagram, reddit) where they will lose content if they leave.
You can change your theme in settings, but there is not a huge amount of variety, mainly it is colour changes.
The lemmy front end is seperate to the back end so it would be possible to create a more reddit like front end if you wanted to. For example nutomic has creates a bulletin board - like front end for Lemmy that looks like this:
There is an android app for Lemmy called jerboa that has a more reddit like UI that you might want to check out (you can find it on f-droid or the play store).
Text posts and comments on Lemmy are just markdown so you can do things like embed images (as you can see above).
Other differences worth mentioning is the difference in content. Lemmy has less content than reddit although I think there is a sustainable number of users currently. More users will join soon when hexbear (a site that uses fork of an older version of Lemmy) migrates to join Lemmy net. It is also likely that some people will migrate from reddit when reddit ipo’s.
Zlib is the best. The main site has been taken down though so you will need to use the darkweb site.

Thank you! They should be fixed now.
