Magnora told me he began working on Saidit after leaving Reddit and Ruqqus

I thought that he began working on SaidIt way before Ruqqus was a thing though. Wasn't SaidIt started in 2017 while Ruqqus was started much later (not sure when, but the first post was made in 2019)?

He said he wanted a site that wasn't left-biased like Reddit, or right-biased like Ruqqus

I think that the right-biased site you're thinking about is Voat (RIP).

Hi, the name came from the fact of avoiding the two extremes of reddit and voat

- magnora7, on "antiextremes"

My major problem with the site is that there's no political content

I think you meant "non-political".

By the way, when did you become an admin?

Yeah, it was Voat. I can never tell the difference.

A few months back, Magnora asked me to help him remove spam (like the aforementioned Chinese vacuum pump ad). I don't deal with anything else. I'm less of an actual admin, and more of a janitor, really.

I wanna nuke those stupid ads too.

FYI: Covers some of the basics.

I haven't finished it nor updated it in a while. I lost enthusiasm.

Thank you for sharing, didn't know about this page. Started reading and wow, it's quite detailed, that must have took a lot of time to put together.

I need to clean it up, finish it, shorten some things, and get rid of the graphs. And maybe update a few things. Not much changes much anymore (that I'm aware of) except the flavours of drama once in a while, most of which is not interesting history worth noting.

Instead of working on that, I'm going to do some other things and eventually migrate/mirror over to WikiSpooks.

Here's more old stuff:

Oh, yeah, the infogalactic page is a great resource.
