Pretty straight question.

I see Lemm.ee is now the second most populated instance based on https://lemmy.fediverse.observer/list, with 3634 monthly active users.

I also know that Lemmy devs said that

lemmy.ml is bigger than beehaw, and only costs 80 euros per month for a dedicated server.

As lemmy.ml has 3561 monthly active users, should we consider that around 3,5k-4k users is the sweet spot for an instance population, and stop recommending the ones that reached that threshold?

    how about you leave that to people running the instances? i am sure they can make inform decisions without your advice ;)

      Well, people ask openly other people when gu instance to move to due to LW instability, if there’s a better scenario than another, we can discuss it together
