As opposed to a “subreddit” ?
Do people just say community? It seems a little vague to me, and I’m new here.

I just call it “community”. Simple.

Either community or sublemmy. But I agree that community is generally better.

i propose: lemmunity

community is too common of a word and sublemmy doesn’t sound right

Or “le mutiny” for added zest, in line with lemmy’s revolutionary tendencies, mirite?

Jokes aside, I like community.

Edit: If cross-instance same-named multireddits are ever to become a thing, I’d be okay with those being called sublemmies (y’know, like lemmy.ml/c/cheese+cheese@beehaw.org+cheese@sopuli.xyz, kind of thing, all under /f/cheese).

Lemutiny is a good inside joke

I guess you could just call it a sub. Reddit hasnt patented that word.

I’m using that, but it has other meanings too, like community.

I say community and get mildly frustrated every time I see “sublemmy”.

The official word is “community”. One thing I don’t like about it is that it is too generic to be reserved for that usage. Like it is hard not to confuse “a Lemmy community” (a sub) and “the Lemmy community” (the set of people exchanging over Lemmy). “Lemmunity” was proposed in another comment, I like that !

A lot of people use “sublemmy” or “sub”, but I don’t think it is a good idea to copy the Reddit terminology. Also, let us recall that “subreddit” means “subdirectory of reddit”, so maybe “subinstance” makes more sense.

In the ActivityPub language, it is a Group, maybe it would make sense to just call it a “group”. It would make things less confusing when posting a issue on another fedi software asking for more compatibility with Lemmy.

Note that Friendica calls a Group a “forum”, which also makes sense. I think Mastodon plans to call it a “group”.
