TLDR: The main reason was Lemmy hogging server resources.

Last year, during the Reddit 2023 API controversy I finally deleted my account and moved on to Lemmy. Here’s a look at my experiences and why I eventually decided to switch to PieFed.

    I only understood about half of what you wrote but it’s exciting nonetheless! Thanks for putting this information out there. Hands on experience and thorough public feedback benefits all of us!

    If you want lemmy to work well, speak with /u/sunaurus@lemm.ee, he’ll sort you out. Dude is a legend and runs the best instance, IMO, but is always willing to help other instances.

    My instance’s been running at ~0.8 of load average, everything on one box and it also runs Matrix and a few other services. I’ve never felt the need to SSH in and even look at it.

    I know it doesn’t scale great but it’s far from the worst offender I’ve hosted either.

    This is cool to see. I tried my hand at running an instance most of last year but threw in the towel this past January. It was just me and 1-2 other active users and none of this software is wide spread enough to have a good solid support community. I really appreciate the people out there dedicating their time and other resources to making this work. (Truthfully, I didn’t put a ton of thought into how and where I was hosting my instance before inviting others to sign up, which is on me, and I think is what ultimately came back to haunt me down the line - my GoToSocial instance is much healthier, for example)
