Lemmy.ml now uses open federation.

You no longer have to ask us to add you manually, you can subscribe and interact without the approval process.

We can always add any malicious instance to our blocklist.

This is great! It comes just in the right time for me, since I’m gonna publish an open instance soon :D

Sweet!

There aren’t that many lemmy instances yet, so expect that this will work just fine for now.

Lemmy has 3 types of federation.

Type Defn
Open Allow anyone on any instance to subscribe and interact with your communities.
Blocklist Allow any instance, except those on the blocklist.
Allowlist Allow only those instances on the allowlist.

You already can, click the All button.

Is there some way to see a list of instances that are currently being federated with?

It’s in the site footer.
