The internet so desperately needs non sjw, non censorship based forums, message boards...I don't think that situation has been this dire as far as free speech is concerned,,,ever... I think there are a number of ways and tricks of attracting users to join a site, but currently none are as powerful as photoshopping memes and putting the website name and url on them. So, when some eventually do end up viral on social sites, readers will follow the ad to check out where it comes from. You however need people that will make the memes and disseminate them, you need the committed backbone, just two guys might not be enough... I always look at Ice_Poseidon model as a recipe for success - four to five mods with below average PS skills, but printing fresh memes daily, aspiring other users to do the same and form a community of people who basically really enjoy satire and keep coming back to it all the time.

In a time of global censorship, satire is the last stand.

I understand your point about Reddit...They are way too popular, the beast has overtaken them long ago

I came here because someone in Rddit suggested it. Rddit is suppressing free speech and seem to have been infiltrated by the Chinese government. Hopefully, my experience will be different here. I am sick of the alt-left doing everything they can to take away my fundamental freedoms.

If you don't believe in Freedom of Speech for those who you despise, you do not believe in it at all.

I'm just number two here so I can't really answer. Some advertising for the site off of the site would be cool. But having a marketing budget sounds like the road to Reddit.

You can certainly get involved too. We need lots of help.

Yeah but, are you treating it as a business or a hobby is the difference, innit... Do you want/need a paycheck in order to invest more time into marketing(at least time, if not actual money)...? If you had a well oiled team of internet dwellers( who'd act as mods on site as well) promoting you all across the internet, holy crap you could attract so many eyes here.... You could pay them in peanuts or shares even better. I envy your involvement in this startup...It's like a hobby meets a potential lucrative job...

Can you guys make voting like reddit why does a downvote have to be a happy face and count as a 'fun' vote, thats retarded by shadow_wolf7 in SaidIt

[–]C3P0 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Downvotes sink your post to the bottom on Reddit. In the Reddit system, initial votes are more important than later votes because that is what determines if your post will rise to the top or sink to the bottom. It is a huge problem; and as we can see many platforms are doing away with downvotes all-together (e.g. Youtube, Facebook).

Initially known as "Anti-Extremes" using the "AntiExtremes.com" domain, SaidIt began as an open source fork on GitHub under Reddit-AE, since changed to SaidIt.[21]

The first SaidIt post, "These people with watermelons ar" was on Sunday, 2017-09-10 at 00:23:51 UTC[22], but it looks like a test post with randomly generated comment snippets that make no sense from a lot of users not seen before.

The first official SaidIt post, "Welcome to AntiExtremes.com" was on Wednesday 2017-10-11, at 09:43:20 UTC.[23] As the title indicates, "SaidIt.net" began under a different name, as "AntiExtremes.com", because...

How is vending of illegal items decided? For instance kratom is perfectly legal to buy or use in most parts of the USA, but is a criminal substance in a small number of states/cities. So what happens if I try to advertise the sale of kratom? For some small subset of users it would be an illegal substance, but not for most. (Purely theoretical question, I have no plans to buy or sell anything on here).

The fact that we aren't able to moderate the sub is an extreme problem though, due to the amount of spam we'd be receiving. In fact, we've had multiple subs with members in the 100,000s try to shut us down, again and again. They have a surprisingly long attention span.

And there's definitely going to be more than a lot of posts if we make this official, we have thousands of members posting daily on other platforms, and regarding saidit, it's all on the down low right now. We wish there's another way, but looking to our past results, we need someone who can handle the 1000s of posts, and the current mod, well, ain't exactly doing it.

Yeah, there's a problem with that. People create an account, create subsaidits, and then forget about the site. There are so many abandoned ones. And anything that's not a default subsaidit (subscribed on account creation) will never get any audience or pull. You can work for six months posting relevant content faithfully and end up with 44 subscribers.

Welcome. Having an inactive mod doesn't restrict anyone from posting though... the community isn't inactive because of the mod, it's inactive because no one posts there. If there are a lot of posts, and a mod is actually needed, then I will consider appointing one. Until then, just post as you want to! Build the community you want to see, an inactive mod isn't going to hurt anything.

I'm no authority, but in addition to the rules are a FAQ and unwritten rules. I like my edgy stuff but there is no universal definition of what edgy is or isn't nor what's acceptable or not. Edge bleeding over into the general vibe has caused issues in the past. I doubt this needs to be said but I welcome you as a SaidItizen and I implore you, as community leader, to convey to your folks that their edgy culture is welcome to be contained within the sub (and those like-minded). It's seemed to have worked here for the most part, IMO, so far as I know.

Just to clarify, we're not officially making the move yet, and probably won't if we can't get the rights to the name.

But anyways, we're, well, an edgy satire sub. I'm sure you know our most popular jokes, but on reddit we were actually one of the most diverse, good-willed (We seemed to be the only ones NOT brigading at times), welcoming subs I've seen. Our sub isn't at all mainly consisting of the alt-right (Hell, I'm not even close to right-winged myself), and we're against all the unironic racism/homophobia and such, we ban it when we see it. It's a community full of unexpectedly amazing people, and one I'm proud to be a part of, let alone running it :)

TL;DR We're just some edgy fucks who want to be left alone at this point, and have some fun with each-other in this shithole of a life we all have before it's too late.

Honestly I didn't go there frequently either, but here goes. It was supposed to be for making fun of gamers who are racist. What they did was make memes out of it and 13/50 happened a lot, to which people spammed "NIGGER" in comment chains in the replies. That's all it was. Then people theorized that all the racist shitposting attracted actual racists and tried to get it banned, which was eventually successful after allegedly posting illegal images on the sub.

I'm torn. I would like for saidit to thrive but honestly the best thing about this place is the lack of redditors.

One of our original missions, before we got sidetracked with trying to keep the site up, etc, was to port RES features onto the site proper. This would be a great one to port. I think we got asked for it years ago too.

And who knows what path that will lead them down mentally in the future?

To play devil's advocate for a moment: If you're already an outcast without guidance a few horrifying videos aren't the problem. Video games, movies, and snuff films will not be the tipping point. Even if you could shelter such an individual from all of those things in the world, doing so would be an act of guidance. Something this theoretical person is without.

Edit: I'd also like to add that video games don't cause violence. :)

Agree. I was mostly joking with you. ;) Enza's new link above is better anyway as it shows how far back they've been doing it. I'm actually surprised I hadn't noticed this myself because I've been subbed there forever.

My stupid argument: I agree with everything you said. Both about overcoming discomfort/the fear of death, as well as humanity's inherit morbid curiosity that's socially acceptable to indulge in via MMA, Boxing, gore that emulates real life violence so well it may as well be real, but not the real thing, etc. Society is obsessed with violence and death.

However, I also see /u/x0x7's side of the argument; notice he used the words "a form of entertainment". It doesn't sound like it's too entertaining to you. The reasons you may potentially watch things like this sound understandable - you're exploring part of life, death. But I am sure there are some sick and edgy teenagers out there laughing at it who find it entertaining. Possibly even make it their identity if they're currently an outcast in time and don't have peers to look up to/guide them. And who knows what path that will lead them down mentally in the future?

So you assume that because we do it, it must not make us uncomfortable. And then, we obviously must be some sick people if it doesn't make us uncomfortable. Except that no, just because you never do anything that would make you uncomfortable doesn't mean other people wouldn't. There's huge benefits to learning how to overcome discomfort.

As for where the curiosity comes from, think about how popular the "action" genre is in movies/TV. Isn't that entertainment revolved around people dying? Except that 1 is fake and 1 is real. It still shows how normal morbid curiosity actually is.

Let's see what other incredibly stupid arguments do i hear about this... People have the right to stop other people from watching them die. As if it's like we're watching you go to the bathroom or take a shower. Pretty sure there is no right like that and there definitely shouldn't be, as getting killed has nothing to do with privacy.

I agree, but check Tom's post lol.

I could never stomach the real, WatchPeopleDie. That genre has been around 4ever, I remember when we were edgy teenagers, my friends would try to get me to watch shit like that and Bum Fights (oh, Limewire). I couldn't stomach it (funny coming from an ip2 user).

I much prefer the "WatchPeopleDieInside" theme all sites picked up lmao (4 context, this was after this streamer, onlyusemeblade, leaked his nudes while piss-drunk (he's an alcoholic) and everyone saw 'em cuz he sent them out to multiple people. He was trying to insult an overweight girl as most girls don't bite back with him, but..)

It's not really a form of entertainment it's more so the morbid curiosity, a lot of people also seem to watch that stuff to talk them out of suicide. It's easy to contemplate it but to actually be able to visualize someone splatting on the ground is something else. So when they see it happen on these videos it makes them reconsider it twice.

It's lazy not to include a link when you're talking about a topic like this. Not everyone is up on the sites that you use.

Absolutely disgusting. Other people dying should never be a form of entertainment. You completely throw away your humanity when you do that.
