Besides the fact you can (in theory) spam fake accounts (there is no email check to see if your email is real) and the fact that a good vpn could be used to abuse this site... My feelings are mixed.

A Canadian man was subjected to a Cyberbullying report. The U.S. Congress and FBI in 2012 tried to shut the site down and failed.

Despite the good intentions they only remove a person from their list if proof is provided they're not infected. (Might've read that wrong, but I think that's what it sounds like.)

The dangers of using this site to mess with someone is a real possibility. If someone doesn't like you, and they have decent computer skills, they could serious mess your life up by using this site to slander you. With virtually no way to sue this website in retaliation...

They have good intentions, yet without a way of verifying what's true or not on the site I can't trust it.

Well, whoa... Firstly I did not write "citizen" in this thread. Second, you are like all Americans on the Internet, you believe everyone you speak to is in your country. ALMOST as if you believed there is no world outside your country. Sigh.

I don't live in your particular shithole of a country. I live in another shithole. And truly, you might know the law. You might know there is no law allowing the IRS to take income tax from you. But that won't save you if they come to your home and do as they please to you.

But yeah, IT SHOULD BE LIKE THAT. Because that's how things work well. But fine, talk about lofty ideals and absolutes all you want while you try to argue from your cellphone because you can't afford an actual computer.

I agree with the barbaric practices anology. Murderihg someone based on ethnicity, race, gender, should be barred and yet many Sunni countries practice barbaric tradition, at least the state does which is akin to murder. I liked what Jackson and Jefferson preached. That is the country the US should have but has all but lost it to looters.

Nah, it shoudn't be like that because a CITIZEN, is a slave to a government which is incorporated. You have zero rights, only privileges that the government and an incorporated cogress (star chamber) can take away at a whims notice.

To call youself a cotizen is a disgrace to the constitution and what tr founders envisioned. Why? Because before 1863, we were soverigns. We owned properry and had allodial title. None of that is true today. The citizenship Act and 14 amendment were only meant to enslave thr common oerson who was in co tract with a corporation ie. US GOVERNMENT or UNITED STATES incorporated &c. It's the system which is the problem. And the treasonous GOP and Democrates use it for their our benefit, after all, they don't have to abide by the constitution is their administration is incorporated.

Woe to those who do not know law. They have taken away the key of knowledge.

Yeah, exactly the way it should be. One nation, one people, one country. At least, that's how it should be if you want things to work well.

I live in a country of 3-4 nations. It does not work well. And now with mass immigration, well... It's worse than ever.

Living in a society is simple: so long as the people play the same "game" by the same "rules" things can work out. The more people understand each other's game and rules, the better.

When you have christians of various denominations, jews, muslims sunni and shiite, people of multiple ethnic backgrounds, some with millenia-old traditions that seem utterly barbaric to the others... How on Earth are you supposed to have a society? It simply CANNOT work. Not unless one does away with tradition, language and religion. And that's much easier said than done.

Nazism is not totalitarian, though. It was DEPICTED as such, but Germans had a lot of freedom under its regime.

A sense of right and wrong is not the same as dictatorship, unless you are positioned extremely and hopelessly far left, where any and all sense of morality is implicitly to be rejected.

Well here's one example:

Published rumour has it that Apple is seeking to acquire Sony. If Sony sells, then the Spiderman rights automatically revert back to Marvel, for reasons. Sony is in the dilemma of having to make 7 more Spiderman films to earn $5 billion, or just sell Spiderman back to Disney/Marvel for $5 billion (more than Disney paid for Marvel and Star Wars). Disney can get Spiderman now for $10 billion now, or for nothing if they wait.

If you could change one thing about saidit's code, what would it be? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks for the search tip. Would be good for the FAQ.

Maybe I was doing it wrong before. A year or more ago it seemed like DDG didn't know SaidIt existed. Then I could search it wonderfully for a while (maybe I was doing it differently). Then I couldn't again, like they dropped it. That "site:" might be the trick I forgot that I forgot. Might be neat to embed a second and/or third search with a G and DDG icon that automatically prefixes the search - or add it to the drop down advanced options.

Yeah the search tools are okay, but the package they're built in is outdated. Honestly, for intense or specific searching, I recommend using google or duckduckgo with "site:saidit.net" added as a search term to limit the search just to saidit. This has always been the recommended method with reddit, so even though our search is mildly improved, it's still not as good as actual search engines and probably never will be.

I just hope for better search tools. Whether it's user or code driven, via subs or search, or whatever. Even if SaidIt had the best organization in the world, it would still be worth striving to make it better.

Crossposting gives me tingles every time you say it. Same with decentralizing.

Search results, organizing, context.

Those are already solved by search and subs. I don't think we need redundant parallel systems for those things.

A multi-sub crossposting system is in the works. It sounds like that's what you actually want.

Search results, organizing, context. Why bother with having subs at all? Some people clearly don't sort their posts, always in the same few. But if you look at some you see they are all on that topic. Many posts can fit under many topics simultaneously. Though less orderly than Wikipedia, lots of people use Reddit and SaidIt for research, as well as other sites, and keywords and tags help a lot.

How about a time limit duration in between account creations from similar IP's in order to clamp down on suspicious behavior.

Not a bad idea. I think you might underestimate the percentage of people who would use VPNs while doing this.

Also we did add a captcha to the registration process a few months ago, that cut down on extraneous accounts quite a bit. I'll think about the per-IP registration limiting, maybe we can figure out an easy way to do it.

How about a time limit duration in between account creations from similar IP's in order to clamp down on suspicious behavior. Like 5 or 6 hours? or 24 hours? Whatever works best.

Accounts can still be deleted and IP's can be shifted via VPN, but back to back account creations should be discouraged at least a little, if you think it best.

Good news! I just finished implementing this feature for you guys.

Now when you paste in a URL for a post, and then click out of the URL field, it will auto-fill in a title if there's nothing there. If there is something already in the title box, then you can hit "suggest title" to make a new title, like usual.

So now it's automatic! I'm going to try and improve the actual fetching functionality now.

A setting or option to play any video link via a preferred site like vimeo, invdio, etc. if the user happens to post a youtube link?

It's possible, but difficult. It can be hard for software to tell if 2 videos are "the same video" unless they're completely identical, and even then it might be hard because the different sites might have different ways of compressing the video so even with the same video you'll get slightly different outputs.

It's a cool idea! Just not sure if it's actually doable because of how hard it is to find "the same video" with software, but it might be doable nowadays. They're certainly able to detect replications of videos on youtube for takedowns... so I guess you could probably use the same video comparison software...

By federizing (sp?) several things could happen. The sooner it happens, the sooner their potential of happening.
* Broader user base and broader code support.
* Greater chance for asstrolls to fork off.
* Less DDoS attacks aimed at asstrolls.
* More decentralization = greater resilience to the powers that be.

Would need to be troll proofed. Maybe limited to friends? Maybe a auto-hash-comparison + time length comparison?

Good point! I'm just brainstorming but you could have a filter that replaces vulgar or negative words with harmless variations of it. In this way, ideas don't have to get filtered.

Edit: Of-course, there are ways around everything. But in so far as developing features, something like that could be tested and perfected over time. May even help with keeping this place more civilized?

Don't you already live in enough of an information bubble? On one hand you're talking about filtering vulgar speech, on the other you're talking about filtering ideas. Many fact based discussions can end in shit talking at some point anyway, so separating that would be hard.

To be honest, I love the site as it is. The highlighted bar when reading the comment threads makes it so easy to collapse the one I finished reading, making it easier to follow the rest. The insightful / fun choice of buttons is positive and makes me feel better at the end of a saidit-session rather than down like the other place. The tabs, the ability to see replies and to chat. I love it here!

Hmmmm. Youtube has screwed some people. So I pass up clicking on a link to them. If it looks really interesting, I'll bypass the link using invidio. Will it be possible to integrate that into the saidit platform? A setting or option to play any video link via a preferred site like vimeo, invdio, etc. if the user happens to post a youtube link? Apologies to all you savy code people, I don't speak the language.

The search functionality could be improved.

Also, possibly a search function for searching within one's own submission history, or comment history.

A vanity page or blurb that shows up on your user profile is not a bad idea. I like user avatars too.

You can already do something kinda like that now, if you really want, but it's out of the way.

At the bottom of this wiki page: https://saidit.net/wiki/index you can see "User's Wiki Pages" where I have one: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/wiki/jasoncarswell that I haven't touched in about 6 months, for reasons.

Anyone on SaidIt could make their own if they wanted.

I couldn't chose just one, so I'm promoting the concept of ranked choice voting (if not the first then the second, etc):

1) decentralizing with go1dfish

2) crossposting to multisubs and/or applying metatags
- allow modifications after posting
- allow your friends to tag your stuff

3) site-wide notifications
- in a little section above or below the submit buttons
- curated by admins
- maybe with a dedicated sub to discuss suggestions

4) flag/mark and/or read/unread
- to help better sort out where you've been and where you want to come back to
- could be similar to metatags

5) improved search and/or improved navigation
- more options than going back through history of pages one page at a time looking for something months ago is impossible

This is three changes, but I think it covers the main blockers to making direct federation with the saidit codebase possible:

  • Collision proof content identifiers (Content based hashes or maybe just UUIDs) and/or allow api to specify I’d at content creation
  • Lightweight topic/sub initialization (possibly in parallel to existing subs)
  • Global changelog feed indexed by date recording votes, deletions etc... ideally using Server-Sent-Events with date based identifiers and Last-Event-ID support

That last one alone would be useful for keeping vote counts up to date with the existing mirroring to nab.

Hmm... perhaps a parental control feature to ban certain words pertaining to racism or vulgar comments? This isn't to ban freedoms, but there can be two dimensions of saidit. A logical fact-based discussion side and a nasty, insulting side filled with expletives. Of-course calls for violence should still be forbidden site-wide. And users can be in control of what type of content can be blocked or not.

Might be something cutting edge, if it could be worked out.

How about a quick profile or personal bio section for users in their accounts, where people can write stuff about themselves to let the community know.

Like a quick description box in the user profile section. Its a small feature and doesn't need to be on top of the list.

I can see this on reddit from my userpage.

I wish we had an iOS app, that'd be my 1 thing as far as frontend stuff.

Maybe someday we'll find someone to help us port an open source iOS reddit app like "Beam" to saidit.
