The chapo community is fragmented now so I don't think you'll see something similar.

Raddle is not tankie friendly and a number of the old chapo mods were die hard MLs and so they did not want the community to move here. They instead formed chapo chat which is more active, although not very, and pretty gross if you don't want to be bombarded by Stalin and Mao apologia.

Most of the old chapo users don't seen to have migrated there or here anyways. If I were to guess most of them are still on reddit using other lefty subs.

Yeah thats the problem for me here too. Im not really a tanki but certainly not anarchistic enough for this site. It seems I just have to get over it.

You all libs anyway ( just for old times sake )

I'm not an anarchist either but I stay because I kinda like anarchists. :P

Also the number of active users here is small enough to actually seem like a community and doesn't generate endlessly distracting content. As such I've kinda stopped interacting with left reddit.

Although I do miss being called a lib :(

if you're of the opinion that Xi's boots are minty fresh, your friends all went to communism.lemmy.ml or something where they could praise daddy without creeping everyone out. if you're not a bootlicker, stick around, there are plenty of forums here that are far superior politically to anything chapo wrought

Chapo was so deer to me because it was political but in a very silly way. The content here just is a downer for me. Its like r/completanarchy. Its always so "Look that everything is shit" but in a meme. Chapo was actually funny.

I'm a lurker and an old fart. I don't post much because I don't get the impression that it's okay to be funny, but that's pretty much the entire internet anymore. The internet is becoming as isolated as the real world. Everyone's joining repressive cults. Authoritarianism is on the rise. It's hard to find people who want to do the simplest thing (such as mutual aid) to help their fellow humans anymore. So I don't think it's just that this place is a downer. The whole world is and there's just not enough of us who want to do anything about it.

I'll take raddle mocking salty tankies over chapo's "China good lol anarkiddies" any day of the week. The things someone finds funny says a lot about their personality.

There's a lot of lurkers, for what it's worth.

I just try to focus on creating content and having conversations, rather than quantifying anything at this point. I tried to have people feel welcome here during the ban waves but jesus christ is it annoying to deal with all the people and their behavior if i'm honest.
