Very interesting about Ustinov - but not enough to compel me to rewatch. I was too young then to appreciate that factoid.

FYI: I also added Vision On.

WTF!?! Seems like they're censoring alternatives and solutions too!

Thanks for sharing! I vaguely remember Once Upon a Time, and maybe I saw a Doctor Snuggles once. Apparently Peter Ustinov did the voice... Cool.

Looking for some help to see if we can import the archives and posts from r/obscuremedia over to here by AAjax in ObscureMedia

I haven't looked into this too much, but this place has a fully functional API that is reddit compatible. Existing reddit content import bots could easily be adjusted to post to saidit instead.

I've been on ruqqus for a bit, but I don't see the same potential you guys have. The reddit model is fundamentally sound, and ridiculously efficient at aggregating content/pulling people together. Reddit's many problems have been self-inflicted; I think as long as you guys continue to sanely administrate this place it could be big in no time at all. Ruqqus's changes don't feel like innovations so much as change for the sake of change. That being said my hope is ruqqus becomes the fun/meme haven, and saidit becomes the ideas hub, that both sites together fill the void spez seems determined to vacate

Glad to hear it! Oh I also recommend checking out saidit's peers at www.notabug.io and www.ruqqus.com, which are probably among the best on that redditalternatives list

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but I recommend this list of reddit alternative sites (that d3rr made and maintains): https://www.reddit.com/r/RedditAlternatives/comments/fas4on/list_of_active_reddit_alternatives_50/

That has some links to some great obscure sites that sometimes have interesting content you wouldn't see elsewhere.

Also I recommend news.ycombinator.com for tech news, but I'm not sure if that qualifies as obscure or not.

www.digg.com actually has interesting articles these days, but not many of them. But I do sometimes see stuff there I never see elsewhere.
