Hi. As I am new on Lemmy I wonder, how I can block communities where I am not are interested in. At the moment, I switch to my user menue, switch to Preferences and to Blockings. There I enter the name of the respective community. But I assume there could be a shorter way for blocking a community directly from my timeline, if I do not want to have its posts in my timeline. Is there such a button vice versa to the Follow/Subscribe button or is it not?

That is how you block communities yes. The next update also has a button to block them from the community page itself.

Its easier to block communities on the lemmur app for android, click on post, click on the three dots and block.

A loosely moderated place to ask open ended questions

If your post is

  1. Open ended
  2. Not offensive
  3. Not regarding lemmy support (c/lemmy_support)
  4. not ad nauseam inducing (please make sure its a question that would be new to most members)
