It is due to this that I have made the decision to join saidit! I imagine I'm not the only one Reddit is driving away

[–]Sup3r 21 insightful - 2 fun21 insightful - 1 fun22 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Same here

[–]PaigeAP 14 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

I did too.

Little by little, one by one everybody will leave Reddit just how everybody left Digg.

I assume most people will leave once Reddit does an IPO(Initial Public Offering).

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

People left Digg because reddit was a direct competitor and it made sense. I'm not aware of a site that is large enough to compete with reddit right now. We'll definitely get people trickle in but I doubt it'd be a mass exodus like Digg was.

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

I just “trickled in”. This site is dope.

Me too, I''m here from reddit.

[–]guineadigs 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Me too! I also joined the official backup forum over at Raddle.

[–]cyberdick 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I too am here from there! :)

Same. I'm trying to sign up everywhere I can think of. Don't want another snahp it-megalinks situation

Hello!

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

I'm from Reddit as well!!✌️

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

Same reasons for me as well! Can't stand reddit bending knee to big corporations.

MeToo -- Am I doing this right?

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

Yep, me too!

Not surprised after they banned WPD it's only a matter of time until they ban other controversial subreddits.

This is going to be the next great Reddit purge, probably still not going to ban r/The Donald.

I'm glad SaidIt exists.

[–]Thraex 15 insightful - 2 fun15 insightful - 1 fun16 insightful - 2 fun -  (6 children)

Reddits gonna end up only allowing the wholesome subs. Funny watching them cut their legs off

[–]Troll 8 insightful - 6 fun8 insightful - 5 fun9 insightful - 6 fun -  (2 children)

I hope all their employees Become homeless

[–]Johnytheanarchist 6 insightful - 5 fun6 insightful - 4 fun7 insightful - 5 fun -  (1 child)

That’s a bit much now, lets just destroy the thing they put countless amount of work into and be happy with that

[–]Troll 3 insightful - 5 fun3 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

I thought I was being easy on them.

[–]Hezkezl 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Reddit's gonna be a great place when every single sub eventually turns into /r/funny... (subs that have nothing to do with their name and get mocked constantly for failing so hard)

[–]FictionalSalad 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

The internet really needs a central advice animal/kitten meme repository, and I think that's it great that Reddit is heading that way.

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

Honestly it'll just be all the same stuff on all the subs. I don't mean like reposts, there just won't be actual diversity. It'll be all the same "wholesome" and "safe space" type content resulting in a single echo chamber across the entire site.

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

I never checked the Donald Trump subreddit enough to gauge its vibe, what were the biggest issues with it that would merit a ban?

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

I've neve went there but from what I've heard it was a hate filled sub and 2 days ago they were gloryfing the terrorist the killed people in the New Zealand Mosque.

[–]GENUINE 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I did hear a little about that, it surprises me that the admins didn't do anything about it.

I really hope this place doesn't end up the same way.

[–]OneEcchiBoi 27 insightful - 1 fun27 insightful - 0 fun28 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

Honestly their censorship is why I joined here. I'm tired of it.

[–]gristle 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Yes! Are there other places that you've joined as an alternative?

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

Tildes.net is pretty good, but it's invite only for now. It was made by ex reddit admin Deimorz.

[–]Framen 21 insightful - 2 fun21 insightful - 1 fun22 insightful - 2 fun -  (6 children)

Just made an account here after hearing the news, hi guys

Give it a few weeks for the word to get out and there be a lot more.

Things on reddit are going downhill very rapidly. Hopefully we can establish a nice piracy home elsewhere.

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

/s/piracy is good.

[–]rockzom 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

Go to TOP ALL-TIME on reddit, and start reposting on saidit.net.

Start archiving side-bar content and FAQs.

We're going to the new world, laddies.

[–]wizzwizz4 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

I don't know if the Reddit TOS allows that.

[–]Greedeater 11 insightful - 6 fun11 insightful - 5 fun12 insightful - 6 fun -  (1 child)

What are they gunna do, delete our accounts? Heh.

[–]wizzwizz4 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Issue a Takedown order. Then the canary will have to remove that.

And potentially sue Saidit out of existence. That too.

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

I've been procrastinating starting a DIYSaidItBots subsaidit here to discuss and teach noobs how to DIY their own bots. In my case I'm interested in sharing all my fave YouTube channels automatically. Most of the ones I follow are not frequent and put out higher quality posts. Obviously there's potential for abuse, and that could be ignored or dealt with.

By dealt with I mean maybe a rule would be made or something, like all bots must have their own sub (which has a limit of one new sub per week).

[–]HanakoIsBestGirl 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

I just quit because of the wpd ban. And now this. What a shithole.

At least they have a backup forum, seems to be on raddle.

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

That backup forum wasn't made by the WPD mod team but it's good to see the users starting up their own version of WPD in some way.

[–]happysmash27 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Raddle has been pretty cruel to me in the past, so I am urging a move to SaidIt instead.

[–]Icalasari 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

First, some background.

Redditors aren't allowed to submit material that infringes someone else's copyrights. We (the Reddit admins) are required by law to process notices from people who say that material on Reddit violates their copyrights. The process is described in the DMCA section of the Reddit User Agreement. The law also requires us to issue bans in cases of repeat infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to just one user and we ban just that person. Other times the problem pervades a whole community and we ban the community.

I find this funny. This sounds like they are going the YouTube route, and yet they keep TD despite it being completely counter to the image they are trying to curate. They can't even censorship right! Very least, if you're going to go the "Big Brother" route, be consistent (I mean, don't go down that route at all, but if you're going down it, don't be stupidly inconsistent. Don't use 1984 as a guide book, people)

Fucks sake, it's a clown circus except the clowns are crashing their cars into each other and infighting because they have no idea what narrative they are even trying to push anymore

EDIT: Actually wait, them being inconsistent chuckleheads IS in line with YouTube's methods. Nevermind

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

... They did it! They have become worse than Facebook!

never knew reddit had a piracy sub

piracy websites always get taken down if in USA, they have to hide em in sweden or some shit

[–]happysmash27 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm urging them to move to SaidIt instead of Raddle. Raddle can be very harsh for those that accidentally go against the narrative…

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

Shame we had to set sail...

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

goodbye

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

Really hoping to see this site take off if Reddit keeps going down the path they seem to be going.

[–]rootcause27 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I just joined here too, because I think it's only a matter of time before the piracy sub is banned. I only discovered Reddit not long before they started going down the Facebook path. I hated the new interface and am praying they don't force everyone on to it, if that happens, I'm out. I will have to find some other Australian political forums to chat in. So what is raddle? I had never heard of it until today.

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

I can't really imagine how far these will go should if the European Parliament approves Article 13.

''you are getting banned, you are getting banned, EVERYONE'S GETTING BANNED''

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

Insightful and fun. I like these choices.

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

I'm going to miss the gaming subreddits I frequented but I'm honestly getting sick of Reddit's bullshit these past few years. Anything remotely offensive, insensitive, or opposing opinions are immediately removed. It's crazy! Glad to see our same community flourishing here.

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

REDDIT FOLKS UPVOTE THIS TO PROMOTE SAIDIT: https://old.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/b28d9q/rpiracy_has_received_a_notice_of_multiple/eir4w5p/

/u/magnora7 Add a link to it if you can and won't be censored.

What the actual fuck..

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

Whelp, links from 2 years ago are still violating the dmca.... https://old.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/b28d9q/rpiracy_has_received_a_notice_of_multiple/eitku9s This is just bullshit

[–]JoJo 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

One of the top moderators stickied a post telling people to move to some crazy-ass leftist site

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

You talking about voat? I went there, that site is a testimony to why anonymity is a dangerous tool that humans are unfit to wield. It's the second most cancerous site on the Internet, only second to 4chan and derivatives.

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

No, Voat isn't leftist, and it isn't any more anonymous than reddit. 4chan is anonymous and it's one of the best sites on the internet.
