I got banned from reddit (honestly feel a lot better without it)
But I miss being able to answer stupid questions and relationship questions.
Lemmy is great, but why aren’t there that many people on here? I don’t get it.
An I using my filters wrong or something?

If your post is
it’s welcome here!
Damn, we need an NSFW instance.
How would you make one? What exactly is an instance? I think a dm or chat room and voice chat room sound good to
Instance is a website running Lemmy. Most of such websites connected with each other in such way so users can chat and see posts without reregistering on each separate instance. That’s how I (registered on beehaw.org) can see your posts and chat with you.
I don’t mind a naughty instance, it’s easy to block. Just don’t start mixing regular content with NSFW on the same server, be it sexy or gory. It would be a nightmare to moderate federation for regular instances and it would be so much easier to just block the whole server.
I don’t even think it would be too bad to mix it on a server since users have the possibilities to block whole communities (in contrast to servers which can only be done by admins for all users). Though I find your concern regarding moderation relatable. Maybe a feature for the admin panel would be nice where you can specify comminities/servers that are not shown in the All timeline or where all posts are marked as NSFW by default (if there is not such a feature yet)

porn isn’t illegal though?
There is porn that is legal in one country but illegal in another. And there are people that don’t want to host porn on their servers for other reasons.
Afaik only text is replicated and images are only hosted at the server (more specifically the pictrs instance) where it was uploaded. However, I don’t know about the legal implications of linking to possibly illegal content.
I never thought about that, seems sound to me. Thanks for pointing that out.
but the same reasoning works for a lot of other content (about pirating, privacy, hacking tools etc).
That’s true, and if an instance starts to share walkthroughs on how to i.e. create bombs or guns etc. every admin should question themselves if they should federate with the server.
