    I like this idea. We should make a topic like this every month or so, maybe in the fediverse community, too. Discoverability is so hard on the fediverse.

        Mystery Science Theatre 3000, like the original reaction videos. A cast of silly people/robot puppets watch a movie and comment on it.

          Wow I forgot this existed. I somehow found myself watching one of these as a kid and was SO confused. Haven’t seen one since. I hated it at the time because I just wanted to see the movie. Recommend one to try as an adult?

            Some suggestions from a MiST who grew up watching them via friends recording them on VHS…

            • Mitchell (Season 5, Episode 12)
            • The Final Sacrifice (Season 9, Episode 10)
            • Pod People (Season 3, Episode 3)
            • Werewolf (Season 9, Episode 4)
            • Time Chasers (Season 8, Episode 21)
            • Overdrawn at The Memory Bank (Season 8, Episode 22)
            • Hobgoblins (Season 9, Episode 7)
            • Soultaker (Season 10, Episode 1)
            • Catalina Caper (Season 2, Episode 4)

            Some of these are available for free, some you need to get off Netflix or other places. There is a mst3k channel that plays episodes 24/7 on Pluto TV, and you can stream much of the original series (there was a revival via Kickstarter that’s on Netflix and now online) via Gizmoolex.com

                There once was a website (a long time ago might still exist) that had links to YT copies people uploaded from their VHS. It had some in-browser IRC client and you could chat with others in sort of a watch party. Was where I saw a lot of seasons not played by Comedy Central / SciFi or Mystery Science Theater Hour.

                This was a long time ago. Like back when browsers had plugins for Shockwave. I doubt it still exists.

            The idea that somebody watched a MST3k and was just pissed that these guys were in front of and talking over the movie is hilarious to me.

            They just riff over movies, look through what they’ve done and pick a movie you either like, dislike, or have heard is famously bad and you’ll either like their comedy style or not, I don’t personally like them

              The first episode I saw was on The Comedy Channel/Comedy Central while staying at a hotel. I was way too young to understand the majority of the jokes but the made a couple specifically calling out places where I’m from (live in Wisconsin) that it blew my mind.

    I usually try to populate the main ones, even popular ones such as [email protected] or [email protected] don’t have that much content.

    I’m taking those two as examples because comicstrips usually makes it to Top of All when content is posted, and Europe is potentially appealing to a large audience (326 users a week)

      I would love to see more comics on Lemmy. I’ve been using an RSS feed for them

          Yea it might work pretty well, with an option for creators to request that the bot stop pulling their content. The feed reader already pulls the image, title and link, so it shouldn’t be hard for someone to set it up to automatically post

    I created [email protected], a community for quad & inline skating. So far there was only a single post from someone other than me. 🥲

    I’d also like to go much more niche with a community specifically for wizard skating. But considering the limited popularity of skating communities, there is no need to hurry creating that one.

      I’ll contribute! I ride urban skates myself and have been on ice and inline skates since childhood.

      Can’t go the community. “Page not found” for me

      Edit: Sorry. It was a Summit error. Works fine on Sync

      Never heard of wizard skating, watching the video now! Pretty interesting.

      I went the BMX route, but my flatmate has always wanted to get back into rolling the blades.

    Here are some

    • [email protected] - this community was quiet on Reddit as well, which was nice in it’s own way. It could use some more content though

    • the various animal communities, like [email protected]

    Honestly? I’m just wondering why there is noone on league of legends related Communities like [email protected] considering how active r/leagueoflegends was/is

      Sadly most gaming communities transferred to Discord. Even lol subreddit is losing users.

        When did Discord become a social network? I’ve only ever used it to talk with friends while playing.

          As people got the hang of using Discord to make large, complex, moderated and bot assisted servers people communicate more heavily on there.

          Discord moves too fast for me to want to use it that way, all conversations disappear rapidly on busy servers, but other people certainly do

            I think the communities that moved there weren’t posting the same types of content. When someone wants to ask a question you just get an answer, no back and forth or debates needed. That doesn’t work when you’re posting a news articles looking for lively debate.

    I created @insect_photography during the migration and it started off nicely. Activity has gone down though so be welcome to just check in if you’re interested or have something to share!
