It doesn't have a lot of active users, but it's got a decent amount of activity from those few.

That’s a good way to describe it.

but the only thing that's kind of irritating is the newest post will be like from 2 days ago. is this normal?

Yes, it is. It's why I like sorting by "all" and then "new" so it feels more active. Like HKP said, saidit is the community itself, rather than the userbase being split by different subs. If you keep posting here, you will find that you will recognise the same 10 people here. Whether it's someone whose cars are well, or someone who owns 199 jetpacks, or even that one guy whose name I misreading as "Vulpix" from Pokemon. In some weird ways, it feels like a family.

Maybe saidit is an unpopular website because npcs outnumber player characters in this world. It explains why reddit is so big. Just a bunch of npcs censoring player characters.

Welcome aboard, TMF.

It's matrix for fuck's sake.

Reddit has NPCs exclusively.

Well said, good job.

[–]IndianaJones 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

good job

ahhhhh that makes me feel so good being socially validated ahhhhhh

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

Good job.

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

Ahhhhhhh that feels so good ahhhhhh..

If it doesn't trouble you, could you send me an audio clip of you saying "Good job"? Please?

[–]GeorgeCarlin 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I have to discuss that with the voices inside my head. There are serious paranoid concerns about it.

Maybe this evening.

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

Shit, that's understandable man. If it'll make you feel less paranoid I'll do it first. You don't have to do it though.

There are 3 users here now, so not active at all. I have never seen more than 5 users at a time in a thread.

Saidit needs to take a page from reddit and deploy bots to create the illusion of active users to build their base. It works. As a single user I can only do so much. People come here and see a wasteland and leave.

[–]TimothyMcFuck[S] 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Yea is true. Like saidit DEFINITELY has potential compared to other sites that try to mimic reddit. Stuff like mastodon doesn't feel the same.

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

Not really, the people who run this cite are itching to start censoring. They don’t have enough users yet.

[–]jet199 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

We already have chippy, he's enough.

It has a lot of work to do. But to be fair, even when it comes to reddit, despite the huge amount of users I rarely see conversation in the original conspiracy sub. Sure you may get a few comments here and there but even if my posts get attention and are liked I rarely interact with others there.

It's a funny contrast when you think about how that sub used to be years ago, you did interacted with people way more often. I suppose it is the work of the shills, with active users being targetted. There were active communities with different goals in that sub but I suppose their witch hunt was effective. We can't let the same thing happen here regardless of how hard things get.

It also brings the issue that It's not enough to have a lot of users, but people also have to try to create organic communities and guilds.

I think that pyramid of debate thing early on scared off most normies

[–]NuclearBadger 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

No, most normies need validation, so when they can't go back to work and check for a reply later they freak out that nobody cares.

It's probably spurred on from text message services showing a "read" status.

Honestly if I had 10 people in life to chat to that's too many people but for some reason a site will get shit on for not having millions of users.

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

That's a pretty optimistic way of looking at it man. Yeah saidit might be dead but what kind of normal human talks to 20+ people at once anyway? Any site with at least 5 users on it is fucking NASA to me.

[–]LarrySwinger2 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That's being done for us.

the newest post will be like from 2 days ago.

If you are talking about one particular sub, then yes. Saidit only has maybe 200 active users at most, but there are hundreds of posts everyday between all the subs. This isn't like a reddit where each sub is a community in itself, all of saidit is the community, although there are a few subs that have enough activity to have their own smaller communities also. Most of us are subscribed to all of the subs or a large number of them, and interact with each other across a wide variety of topics. I engage in discussions on topics I otherwise not know existed because of the dynamics of the site

I come on about twice a week (I don't like spending too much time on the web) and find good content each time. Not going to go viral here, but you do get good interaction (though just not large numbers).

the newest post will be like from 2 days ago. is this normal?

You're browsing like it's reddit. Sort by all, not subscribed. There's a little over 100 people on a day, although sometimes it spikes.

https://saidit.net/new/ the front page has posts until 17 hours ago currently.

[–]jet199 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It would be nice if we could get s/all plus our subscribed subs which aren't on there.

[–]David_Allen_Cope1 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

It's not very active but you can say NIGGER NIGGER NIGGER without getting banned. This place has some of the fun that reddit originally had a long long time ago

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

so high brow I can't help but upvote

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

It reminds me of very early reddit. But now we're old.

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

I value quality over quantity.

About tree fiddy.

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

More active than the queen.

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

The problem is that no one goes to new and upvotes the new stuff.

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

There are about 5 users who are extremely active.

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

I think activity is okay.Also I rather have my time spend in a free speech platform rather then a dictatorship like reddit.
