Some topic communities have very low member and post count and exist across various servers under various names. Can i add single post to lets say 4 on-topic communities or is it considered a bad idea. I am aware that I may be searching across different servers and communities so the duplicity is not ideal, but in terms of exposure in small communities, I would really like to do said duplicity.

    Cross-posting is one of Lemmy’s greatest features. Though I would suggest you limit it to three posts. One of the greatest things about cross-posting is it enables people to find new relevant communities, so I would suggest posting from smallest to largest.

      Thanks, I see that the cross-posting works like this: “In order to cross post, I need to first create the post in one community, then after I create the post, I can click the two nested squares icon under the title of the post (with the pop-up text “cross post”) that shows up on mouse-over.” https://lemmy.world/post/354611

    Use the crosspost feature. Some frontends can even filter out those someone has already seen.

    I can’t speak for the policies here, but just from a etiquette perspective as long as their cross posts so each of the communities can see where else you’ve posted it I think that’s fine. Then if people are really interested in the discussion we can follow it

    Sure, but try not to appear as a spammer.

    When an episode of Taskmaster comes out I usually post it to taskmaster@feddit.uk and Britishtelly but no further.
    Unlike some people who are currently trying to spam the ‘reprogram your brain’ video in 6-8 communities
