We added an extra UI for our users. Photon by Xylight is an interface with a sleek, modern look and has all the bells and whistles you would need. Moderator tools included! You can access the UI from https://photon.lemmy.world.
Visit Photon's project page on [github](https://github.com/Xyphyn/photon) or get in touch with the developer in the [!firstname.lastname@example.org](https://lemmy.xylight.dev/c/photon) community. If you want to use photon on other instances you can do so from https://phtn.app.
Update: [@Xylight](https://lemmy.xylight.dev/u/Xylight) has set up a donation link so if you like photon as much as I do, show him some love! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/xylight
We've launced a public discord server at https://discord.gg/lemmyworld
The reason for why we choose discord is because it was easier to moderate and manage than other options. Besides we also had a discord-bot guru by the name of Rooki who created a neat bot that allowed us to connect/verify discord users to their Lemmy World account.
So if you are a moderator and you are looking for some extra hands to moderate your community, or if you need to contact anyone from the LW team, this is the most efficient way to do it!
Come have a look!
We just added Alexandrite to the server, it's an alternative desktop UI for Lemmy created by Sheodox who worked tirelessly to make the necessary changes to we could host it ourselves here. So go to **https://a.lemmy.world** and have a look!
He continues to update it constantly, you can follow the development on his [github](https://github.com/sheodox/alexandrite) page or in his [community](https://lemmy.world/c/alexandrite). If you like what you see and want to support him, why not [buy him a coffee](https://www.buymeacoffee.com/sheodox)? :)
For those who don't have Lemmy World as their home instance and want to use Alexandrite, either ask your instance admins to add it or go to https://alexandrite.app!
Edit: I should probably have mentioned that Alexandrite is meant for desktop!
The lemmy.world instance was just updated to version 0.18.2. The login issues that were being reported (for example, [here](https://lemmy.world/post/1364490)) are now resolved.
