r/RedditAlternatives. I like this site more than Reddit, I just wish more users there would start using this one.

I came here after /r/watchpeopledie was banned and they set up the replacement here. So I guess through there, specifically the WPD telegram group.

Same here

the whole new zealand shooting fiasco, where reddit just started to go crazy on censorship. banning wpd, distasteful joke subs, banning any user discussing info on the shooter video or manifesto. quarantining multiple others and scaring other subs (firearms related subs, protectandserve, gunfights, pewdiepie subs) to just shutdown for like 2 days.

my disgust with reddits actions, led me to watchredditdie sub, and two alternatives kept showing up; voat or saidit.

Like many of us, I'm from r/watchpeopledie. Hoping this place will be less toxic because Reddit has gone crazy since 2016.

Hello my fellow wpd brother! Hope more of us move here, I miss the interesting conversations on that sub. Saidit feels less of a hive mind as it currently stands. Not as far left as raddle nor as far right as voat.

A return of balance to the Universe.

As someone who is pretty-left-leaning I agree. I'm less offended by Reddit's general political stances since I agree with them, but the censorship, corruption, and incessant ads are getting out of hand. Plus, the really problematic subreddits aren't being banned, whereas things like r/watchpeopledie were.

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

It's your duty to keep it less toxic. Call people out on their shit. I expect it when I do dumb stuff. No one is immune.

Through an off-chance comment on Reddit.

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

sem, and it was about watchpeopledie getting banned

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

sem as well

New Zealand shooting lead to censoring of news. I asked if there is any platform that does not censor stuff. My options were voat, saidit and one more site (forgot its name; it is the name of some extinct elephant species)

Mastodon?


https://mastodon.social/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_(software)

Mastodon is an online, self-hosted social media, and [DECENTRALIZED/uncensorable] social networking service. It allows anyone to host their own server node in the network, and its various separately operated user bases are federated across many different sites (called "instances"). These instances are connected as a federated social network, allowing users from different instances to interact with each other seamlessly. Mastodon is a part of the wider Fediverse, allowing its users to also interact with users on different open platforms that support the same protocol, such as PeerTube and Friendica.


[–]PikonParadox 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Yes, that's the one. Thank you.

I spent some time on it but the content did not interest me as it was mostly people posting random things like people do on Facebook and I do not want to go through all that for very little content which is actually useful. Also, there seems to be some things happening like users being assigned invisible points to determine who is most influential. The users on there do not seem comfortable with it.

edit: Voat also seems to be having some conflict of user interest. So, here I am on Saidit.

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

I signed up for Mastodon. I even want to host one only because it's decentralized.

But I found it after I found SaidIt. I have yet to actually spend any time there and learn how it works, its culture, and which are the better ones to follow. Like I need another distraction.

In other news I learned about some Reddit-like things being decentralized.

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

This place isn't censorship free ya know. Posts are removed.

[–]PikonParadox 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I see. Thanks for letting me know. I had a feeling that they wouldn't let every single thing to stay because that would eventually lead to bad things. I hope this place stays better than reddit at being unbiased.

Yeah it is all fun and games here - until some commies get thrown out of helicopters, then the shit hits the fan.

Like u/happysmash27, on r/conspiracy. Those Harry razors ads masquerading as TILs were the straw that broke the camels' back.

You heard about it from me?

I heard about SaidIt when its founder, magnora7, was on the /s/TinFoilHat podcast. I was actually almost ready to start looking for a truther-friendly democratic forum and community to get feedback on my projects. I didn't know I'd spend 7 months delving/learning about Reddit culture.

[–]sawboss 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

You heard about it from me?

Yes. Someone on r/piracy linked to one of your articles during the recent purge. I think the post might have been purged since then.

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

That's funny.

That also reminds me I need to share my collected Tigole torrents.

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

Trueoffmychest on Reddit. Whenever a sub is banned people post links to alternatives. Saidit just so happened to one of the links.

[–]happysmash27 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

OGUsers? What is that?

I believe I originally found SaidIt from comments in /r/conspiracy.

Via Alternative.to while I was looking for many kinds of free, alternative, open source software. I was looking for alternative wikis at first then went down the rabbit hole into organizing categories then education and reference. This seems to be a gem.

[–]d3rr 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Cool. Thank you /u/JasonCarswell for suggesting that we make a listing on that site.

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

I can't recall why I was there in the first place, but everywhere I go I plug SaidIt, and while there just made a listing. It got accepted a couple days later and I think magnora7 improved it.

OGUsers. Hello my fellow gays

Are you really gay? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I know what gay is. What is OGUsers like?

Yay!

Want a banner like the WPD banner?

I can make in different colours, or the same.

[–]the_real_farfetchd 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I'd appreciate that, yeah. Same colors is fine

Check back tomorrow evening. It will be in this gallery: https://infogalactic.com/info/SaidIt_banner_gallery

Also you can use the code from here: /s/WatchPeopleDie/about/stylesheet

And plug it in here: /s/WatchPeopleSurvive/about/stylesheet

Swap out WPD with WPS and upload the WPS banner and those two logos:

Saidit-2019-Logo-Day-Text-140x60 https://saidit.net/media/PFlsWxrSV4d4pk2ihsXY0xY06FrSKudKYUCN7cG76jA.png

Saidit-2019-Logo-Night-Text-140x60 https://saidit.net/media/zmzrebe9wU3SAxp8cun-5VcQ38W9G5J0JOEJBjt-5Xo.png

It should work. If not find me in Chat. Or I'll eventually find your response in my messages.

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

Thanks, I just set it up. Works perfectly!

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

Looks good.

Recommend swapping "left: -142px;" for "left: -155px;" to line up the 3rd row.

I like that you crossed out stupidity, elevating the content.

I don't think I can handle watching these but it sound like a perfect fit for SaidIt.

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

Yup, that looks better. Thanks!

Heard about it when going on WatchRedditDie at the time when the banout took place.

I heard about this website from Reddit comments (I think on /r/watchredditdie or /r/subredditcancer). I am getting sick and tired of the growing censorship and SJW nonsense on Reddit, and I am on here now.

/r/Piracy drove me here.

I searched for "reddit alternatives" while using duckduckgo

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

Since most people seem to come here from reddit, some users with an account there should probably seed a little advertisement for this site there to gain the user rates.
