I’m one of the r/futurology mods, and involved in setting up our new Lemmy instance - https://futurology.today
While we don’t want to spam our user base, we’d still like the site to do well and promote it.

Any advice for promoting our site, bearing in mind 95%+ of eyeballs go to these top posts.?
Here’s our onboarding announcement.
