Pretty sure most of the users left well before (myself included) the site actually closed. So any bump from users migrating here should have happened weeks ago.

when life gives you lemons, you say "fuck yeah" because lemons are awesome

True, I found these lemons to be pretty useful for squeezing into my eyes after reading the controversial opinions thread

Haha maybe I will! Try not to exterminate any ethnic groups while I’m gone, donkeys!

No need to leave, home-cheese. Popper is grumpy.

We’re just being silly. Well, I for sure am so I interpreted the comment as humorous.

My predictions is that there is going to be a mass exodus from ruqqus to here in the coming weeks. I already seeing some signs of that.

[–]Popper 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

already here and it only increased slightly

[–]The_Mad_Pirate[S] 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

I think it will increase a lot in the coming weeks. BTW, I love your user name.

maybe but it died like 2 weeks ago, I'd think within the first couple days users there would notice their site is down, then think about some alternative which doesn't take too long to search out, saidit is one but there are others. They're either here or at some other site by now. It was already pretty dead so there's not a huge influx of users coming to any of these sites.

[–]The_Mad_Pirate[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Fair enough. That's quite a pretty good argument.

[–]gt- 8 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

They started nuking guilds like 7 months ago and thats when the mass exodus started.

I suspect any of these users(myself could be considered a lite enjoyer of authright type things) already have been on saidit and using the platform considering its been around longer than Ruqqus. I will give it to Ruqqus though, I loved their UI

Ruqqus has been gone for a week, I feel like if there were going to be an influx it would have been here by now. As for distasteful ideologies, there have been quite a few subs banned from reddit and elsewhere that I'm not interested in so I just mute them, easy.

[–]The_Mad_Pirate[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

That's the most rational approach indeed, I wish everyone just took that approach instead of complaining.

[–]jr_ 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

I'm from Ruqqus, but the only reason i'm here because recently i've had a interest of clones of old version of a website so i searched up "Old reddit clone" and found this in a reddit thread. And funnily i had a comment on there. But i found a link to this site, signed up through the frustrating captchas and bam. Nostalgia intensifies. Didn't even know Ruqqus was dead until i saw a post about it a day ago on this site.

Welcome to saidit!

[–]jr_ 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

thank you

[–]yetanotherone_sigh 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

Wait, what happened to Ruqqus? And did anyone notice?

[–]jr_ 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Nope! Just heard about it a day ago when i got on this site. Welp, that Ruqqus app is useless now. delete

[–]The_Mad_Pirate[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The admins took it down after an year or so of infighting and drama.

[–]magnora7 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah, we're completely ready. Just waiting for people to tell others about it by word-of-mouth

[–]Chipit 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Oh look, a 2 day old account.

All that's gonna happen is the paid social media influencers will have one fewer target. There will be even more of them here.

[–]package 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Ruqqus had been hemorrhaging users for months due to the admins constantly meddling with the front page, refusal to remove the unending bot spam, and their increasingly open disdain for the site’s members. By the time they mentioned shutting down the site there were only 20 or so active users

[–]The_Mad_Pirate[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I wonder why is so hard for many of those reddit alternatives to just let the site be defined organically by the nature of their user base. Sure, you might disagree politically with the nature or alignment of the user base, but why attempt at socially engineering them ?. If they wanted to do something like that they could just make the site private, require KYC and vet the user ( like say Ovarit does ), not be open to anyone and then complaining that the front page is dominated by subs you don't personally agree with. That makes no logical sense at all.

If by socially engineering them you mean calling them kikes and faggots, accusing everyone on the site of shilling for jews, then yes, they were doing some engineering there. AOE attacked users to the point where they left. Nuff said.
