    If people would use the lemmy cross posting functionality it would only show up once.

        I think ljdawson is working on it for Sync. I assume that’s why he held off on implementing posting.

        I didn’t even realize this was a thing already. The apps need to add this ASAP, seems like a pretty vital part of making the experience smooth.

      if people do cross posts, will i see the post only once?

      will lemmy detect that i can see the original + 3 crossposts and show me only the original?

      this is more like a feature request, i don’t think we are there yet.

      we could also aggregate and sync comments across cross postings, so that the post is really just one, but posted in more than one community.

        Yes, this is how it works in lemmy-ui. In this following example someone posted to !technology@beehaw.org and I pressed the cross-post button and cross-posted it to !firefox@lemmy.ml:

        And if you cross post it to more then one there will be just a list of them.

          Problem is on mobile apps. If it works on website, that’s good but doesn’t solve the problem of majority of users that are on mobile.

            I’m using the website on mobile and it does do it there too:

                Interestingly the title is “my biggest gripe with Lemmy” not “my biggest gripe with my app of choice”.

                  OP, like me, probably doesn’t/didn’t know that the website interface for Lemmy has a solution for this and it’s actually an app problem. So to OP it is a “Lemmy” gripe until we’re given more info. :)

                  The comment you were replying to was talking about mobile apps and not the mobile website.

                  Edit: took some rudeness out of the comment
