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?

              I was thinking about leaving those spaces for people who actually need that lifetime license, if I ever move I would be happy to support financially:)

                That’s really thoughtful of you, but no need to worry. I’m still managing access to Lemmy manually, and only after I reach the 250 I will start giving the option to “upgrade” or check if the account is being used or if just squatted for the free slot.
