I am Loriborn, and I'm the caretaker of The Tabletop Place, a Lemmy instance dedicated to the support of communities and discussion surrounding boardgames, tabletop games, roleplaying games, and all related interests. We have a number of rules you can find on our home page, but more than anything else, we encourage civil discourse and want to maintain a healthy and welcoming environment for our members. I currently also moderate r/frostgrave, and run the Frostgrave.net wiki.
This is going to serve as an introductory post to our community here at The Tabletop Place. Some of you may be joining from some of the subreddits where moderators have graciously allowed us to share the site with. Many of these subreddits should already have communities here on this instance, but if you don't see your community here, don't hesitate to ask, and one can be created, with moderators assigned either from its respective original subreddit, or of existing moderation team, if they so desire.
If you are unfamiliar with Lemmy, Federation, or the concept of instancing posts and communities, there are resources available on the official Lemmy website and Github pages that can be found at the bottom of the site.
The best app, at the moment at least, for browsing and posting on Lemmy instances is Jerboa. You may also notice that federation on other communities is currently limited, as those communities, especially larger ones, need to accept The Tabletop Place first, before you'll be able to accurately see posts and comments. These should come in time as the community's user count grows.
Additionally, custom avatars and profiles are highly encouraged!
If you are a new user who has joined as a moderator of another community, please mention so in your application, and post here so I can apply moderator status for your applicable communities!
Thanks again, and welcome to The Tabletop Place!
