What would be a good name for a lemmyBB flagship instance?
I dont think lemmybb.ml sounds good, so im looking for other suggestions.

LemmyBB Development Update 1
Here are the new features in lemmyBB which I added since the [original announcement](https://lemmy.ml/post/363093). In case you dont know what it is, LemmyBB is an alternative frontend for Lemmy, based on [phpBB](https://www.phpbb.com/). Sooner or later it will be able to replace lemmy-ui for those who prefer a different user interface. ## Support for site setup Admins can easily initialize their new instance ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/6d1f847b-9f33-46de-a25e-690ae2a95f75.png) ## Much improved post editor - Working smileys - Working previews - Working buttons to insert bold, italic, quote etc - Javascript enabled on entire site - Dont need to enter community name manually anymore ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/3c4b5024-7c7e-43b6-a06e-cc42c6beabe7.png) ## Support for notifications You will now receive notifications about new replies, mentions and private messages. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/ca0ad6c3-21be-4398-8621-e0cb3672a2cb.png) ## Next tasks There is still a lot of functionality missing, most importantly: - Private messages - Search - Everything related to moderation - Localization - User profiles Contributions are very much welcome!

New domains for Weblate, Gitea, Drone (updated)
I have just finished migrating the services mentioned above to new domains, and also to hosting on the lemmy.ml server, instead of my personal server. This makes sense because all of them are used almost exclusively for Lemmy development. It will also allow [@dessalines@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/dessalines) to administrate the services in case of problems. The new domains are: Gitea: git.join-lemmy.org Weblate: weblate.join-lemmy.org Drone: drone.join-lemmy.org There are redirects in place, so you will automatically be forwarded from old domains to new ones.

I have finished writing instructions for deploying lemmyBB on a production server, which you can follow at the link above. Right now the project is still in a very early stage, nevertheless main funcionality is already working. This includes browsing communities, posts and comments, writing posts/comments and registration/login. Before developing the project further, I would like to get some feedback from users and admins. If you are interested, you can follow the instructions to install lemmyBB on your own server. This setup also installs lemmy-ui, in order to access functionality which is not yet available in lemmyBB (particularly moderation). You can also try out lemmyBB on a test server with this setup, namely [lemmybb.lemmy.ml](https://lemmybb.lemmy.ml/). It runs lemmy-ui at [lemmyui.lemmy.ml](https://lemmyui.lemmy.ml/), which shows the same data in another format, and the same account login works on both domains. Registrations are currently open, but keep in mind that this instance is only meant for testing, until other instances are created. If you notice any bugs or want to request new features, please open an [issue](https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmyBB/issues) or comment here.
