Thanks for all the effort.

In the long run please consider running a federated Lemmy instance ( https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy ) instead of your regular forum :)

Over 6 articles, every day for 31 days. Probably more, since I know you try to post less over the weekends, so more like 7 or 8+ articles a day. Just incredible. I'm not sure where you find time to pitch into the Discord and Forums too, all the while running the Reddit site, updating Twitter and keeping the 7 Days to Die server up to date. And probably a heap of stuff I don't use/see (like Telegram).

How do you do it?? Although, I'm very glad you do.

This looks interesting, but . . . from that page I went to their webpage, and I can't figure out how to contact them to tell them there's a grammatical error in their top paragraph of their front page. They do have a "contact us" thingie, but when I went there it turns out I'm not cool enough to contact them if I don't already use Mastodon or whatever. Doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth, and doesn't make me think they're likely to be good at building a social network.

It's not the use of the Oxford comma? The front page is built from this template, so you could probably make an issue or a pull request to have it fixed:

No. The github page has a link to
https://join.lemmy.ml/
where they say
QuoteLemmy isn't just a reddit alternative; its a network of interconnected communities ran by different people and organizations
They mean "run" not "ran". Now that I look at it again, they're missing an apostrophe on "it's" as well. Two grammar mistakes in one sentence at the top of your front page does not make you look pro. And no, I'm not going to learn how to fiddle with github just to help some people fix something who I've already started to dislike precisely because they've made it impossible for me to just email them.
