There's a topic discussion system on the Fedivsere called Guppe, which functions a bit like old-fashioned email discussion lists.

The way it works is this:

1. You can find discussion topics listed at

2. Follow a topic's account address to follow the discussion. The account address format is @ TopicName @ (but without the spaces).

3. Mention the topic's account address in your own post to add it to the discussion

For example, the "Plants" discussion is happening at @ plants @ (but without the spaces), and if you follow this account you'll see the discussion's posts in your timeline. If you @ this account in a post, your post will be added to the "Plants" discussion.

If you want to leave the discussion, just unfollow the topic's account.

If you want to create a new topic, search for "AT (new topic) AT".


p.s. For those who don't know, you can follow an account's address by pasting the address into the search box and searching for it. This will bring up the account's profile which you can click "follow" on.

p.p.s. Sorry for the spelling mistake in the first line :blobblush:

Is it possible to add a meaningful description to a Guppe group, to explain what the purpose or topic is? Many groups are really quite cryptic and the profiles are always the same auto-generated texts.
