New Admin here

Hi everyone here on slrpnk.net

You probably know me from moderating https://lemmy.ml/c/solarpunk

I was asked to join the admin team here and was thinking of moving my main account to a different instance anyways.

We will probably also move this Lemmy instance to my server when the one year free offer from the Lemmy devs runs out early next year.

I hope to run it on a very efficient ARM server powered by solar PV, but that might come a bit later :)

What is your plan concerning new communities? I am trying to bring people here from a Solarpunk Telegram channel. We would like to have our community here. Also, the list of topic-oriented communities looks a bit random and certainly incomplete.

Yes I noticed that community creation is currently restricted. I think that is an anti spam measure, but we could probably enable open community creation again.

There’s a lot of communities outside of slrpnk.net that’s federated with the server, which means that you’re able to participate in them from your home account on slrpnk.

If there’s no existing alternative, you can either create your own community or if that’s disallowed on slrpnk, petition the mods to set one up. You can also select different servers with different rules, like open community creation, and still interact with everyone.

We enabled community creation. But to keep things a bit clean we will probably prune dead ones from time to time… community gardening ;)

you just needed to ask tbh :P

Would be cool to have a promotional post at r/solarpunk (100k members) as well

Yes please do. I don’t have a Reddit account.

I was planning to submit an article to solarpunks.net after migrating the community to a solar powered server but that will be only early 2023 or so.

If you can make pictures (screenshots, blueprints, block-schemas etc) of your solar setup, please share! It helps creating more engaging promo posts

I don’t want to spent more time documenting than actually creating it though :) But yes some nice pictures would be good.

I hope to run it on a very efficient ARM server powered by solar PV, but that might come a bit later :)

cooooool

Omg what a great news! Looking forward to seeing more solar punk content from this awesome instance

Congratulations!

Yeah, but I think there is potential in the idea of a Solarpunk community. Its specific enough but the same time welcoming to new users.

yeah, let’s hope it takes off!

ye reddit is still one of the ‘‘good’’ socials in the mainstream, so it’s harder to make it fly right now like mastodon that replaces twitter and, in some cases, facebook and instagram
