This post is aimed at folks viewing posts on this community and that would like to participate
Having communities spread across different instances of Lemmy makes it pretty unintuitive (IMO) to participate in DDA discussions from outside this instance. And since signups are disabled for this instance, you’ll have to sign up with another instance (check out https://join-lemmy.org/instances). So with that, I figured I’d write this out for folks who are lost in the fediverse :P
Choose an instance and create an account. Some instances require answering an application question, while others just require solving a captcha. Choose an instance that appeals to you and create your account. I’d say the most popular instance would be lemmy.ml, for example.
Log in to your instance and search for the DDA community. Once you’re logged into your instance, you can copy this url
https://cdda.social/c/dda_discussionand paste it into the generic search field of your instance. Press search and wait a bit. Even if it shows “No results”, it’ll turn up the community eventually, which you can click on and subscribe.
View and post stuff in DDA discussions. Once you’re subscribed, you can view your subscribed communities in the “communities” tab in your instance. Just click on DDA discussions and participate to your heart’s content :)
