Good to hear. Save this somewhere being the Bossman: you have my word (for what that's worth from a random user) that my intentions are exactly as I stated; get the traffic up, get the niche subject subs going, and when/if the subjects are not aligned to my interests I'll pass the torch to a user that is active in said community and passionate about the subject itself.

Sound good?

LOL I don't even remember where I got those but I've been adding to those lists by recommendations about what's missing, so ShowerThoughts, WritingPrompts and NoSleep are not even mine, though I'll be sure to check them out.

All are good to keep the creative juices flowing so yes definitely have a squizz at em over on Eddit.

I'm actually writing several projects, but that's another long thing for another day if you actually care. Yes there's /s/Writing and recently /s/Microfiction.

Subbed, thank you. Ooh if you are, what else should I keep an eye out for writers?

While I understand there may be nuances between the general and specific categories I'm frustrated by redundancies when there's a lot that haven't been covered. For example recent additions /s/SyrianCivilWar and /s/vzla mirror the extant /s/Syrian and /s/Venezuela but there's none for Asia, Brazil, EU, Mexico, NewZealand, Russia, SaudiArabia, UK, Vietnam, etc.

That'll come with Population/user growth I reckon. It could be that Squatters (mods snapping up URLs so no one else can use em) grabbed the originals before the others could? Folks coming from Eddit see subs as prime real estate I reckon. Myself included for WPD, won't lie.

Those are regional, and as you saw I have lots more. But a lot of the broader ones nullify any sort of need for specifics, at least for the foreseeable future. Like "DeepState", "MindControl" and "NGOs" would cover all the specific examples in their more specific lists and more, just as "Crime" covered a lot.

Diversification is definitely a welcome addition once numbers are up on Saidit, so these niches are filled.

Asking magnora7 sounds good. What's a powermod? I'm pretty sure I'm not that, unless my graffiti/banners counts. Don't feel pressured or obligated to do anything you don't want to. Or rushed. Take time to see how it goes. My history is wide open here. And in that history you'll see me constantly intending to soon to pull back to focus on my projects and animation. I really mean it but I may be getting addicted to SaidIt.

Magnora7 isnt a fan of Powermods either, so that's cleared that up as far as I'm concerned. Powermods are the reason folks are coming here (as well as the censorship) from Eddit; essentially it boils down to a few hundred controlling most of the content in subs with hundreds or thousands of Moderator spots that abuse their "power" from one sub to the next.

And animation eh? What kind of things you have under the belt? I'm appreciative for the offer to create the sub for me regardless and keen for it :)

I don't know if I'm "for the subjects" so much as come across content that fits there best. Sex, Race, WorldHistory, Solutions, VideoEssays - are very broad topics with content that would belong there over other defaults like "news". And if I'm looking for information on vaccines I'd rather go to a vaccines sub than "health" in general covering all manner of issues.

Agreed wholeheartedly.

Log them, sure. Be aware of them. But watch them? That sub has plenty of people getting hit by cars and trains.

What is a sub you're hoping to see over here on Saidit? by Starlight_Fire in SaidIt

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

The Eddsworld subreddit.

Would love to see a subsaidit. (Yeah, I'll refer to them as subsaidits. Force of habit from Reddit, Carried over to here.)

Awesome! I'm glad to see all the growth that is happening on saidit, and all the people that care about free speech and civil discourse. Means a lot to see this community coming together for real

Yeah, IPFS is another thing. It integrates more easily into existing browsers without having to download extra software, and there are already websites implementing it (e.g. d.tube). Clearnet is just a term we use to refer to the normal internet.

Not sure what they're planning, but isn't keeping it a secret basically just security by obscurity? Sooner or later someone's going to find out anyways. Redundancy should be better in that case.

I saw the ZeroNet helper extension but it still requires ZeroNet to be installed in your computer, which is probably one of the main barriers that prevents people from adopting the technology. Downloading another piece of software just to access one website is too much of a hassle.

And thanks for introducing me to Holochain, I just checked it out and it seems interesting. I'll have to look into it.

Just landed here recently and though I've just glanced at what the site has to offer, I am optimistic its user base will gain traction and the site will be a free speech platform for everyone where healthy debates and questioning the state of things will be encouraged. Tried /voat and kinda got the heebie geebies from reading some of the posts and comments there. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out...But for me, corporate sponsorships, thread-locking, vote manipulation, comment removals, downvote brigades, front-page spamming...You get the idea...Well they suck. BTW, Hi to everyone here! This kind of feels like when I left Digg for Reddit ... I'm old...

I got my reddit ban in 2017 How 'bout you? by EndlessSunflowers in SaidIt

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

Nah, I'm not baned from all of Reddit, just OffMyChest.

Commented in TumblrInAction because two people were saying how they sarcastically loved each other and I went "Well I love everyone!" trying to bring some wholesomeness into it.

Got banned by the automod, thought briefly about going to Voat, remembered all of Voat is an absolute shithole, stayed,

Now they're banning Piracy and Crackwatch so I came here.

Keeping my reddit for the Eddsworld sub though. Until there's an Eddsworld subsaidit I'm keeping my Reddit account.

Wouldn't ever delete though, I've got some karma there I wanna keep. (3451 last I checked.)

Good lead. Worth posting. I'll do it if you don't want to.

Never heard of imzy before. I REALLY like their mascot. I'm almost tempted to use it and turn the spike 90 degrees like a Mohawk - but SaidIt may have a punk desire for freedom and free speech, this is a classy place - but we're not elites so top hat's don't belong either. It's a conundrum.

Yeah I gave purism way too much money but I really want them to succeed. Hopefully I'll be good to go until the third or fourth Librem is released.

I just picked up a couple of shitty Nexus5 for $40 off "some guy". I've been happy enough with it to use as a daily driver, but it still has some quirks.

I'd like to go the Purism route but I don't really like spending a lot of money on a phone that's going to end up in a lake of cowshit like my Nexus did yesterday.

Dude I had no idea that Ubuntu Touch was supported on so many phones. I'm super jealous, I have a preorder in for a Purism linux phone but it's a ways out still. Damn I had a working Nexus 5 until a few months ago, I could have been using this.

Anyway thanks again for making a SaidIt app.
