/u/d3rr and myself are excited to announce several new updates for SaidIt.
SaidIt now has a 'home' page, which is the new front page. If you want the old saidit.net front page, go to https://saidit.net/s/all (or click 'ALL' in the top left) and you'll see exactly what used to be at https://saidit.net
The new 'home' page is /s/all minus any vendor-based subs, including /s/greymarket and /s/ads. We did this to help condense posts about interesting news and events, as is the intent of the site, rather than the front page be primarily a vendor advertising board. You can see now there is a new 'HOME' navigation button in the top left, next to 'ALL'. It also has a corresponding #home IRC channel, and this is also the default IRC channel now shown in user profiles.
We are also releasing a new feature called "allminus". This lets you exclude any subs you want from /s/all. So, for example, if you wish to see /s/all but exclude /s/worldnews and /s/pics, you can make a custom link like this: https://saidit.net/s/all-worldnews-pics. You can use this to exclude any subs you like. Reddit's open source code had this available to gold members only, but we're opening it to everyone.
We also enabled the sub rules functionality. Available at each sub at its respective URL like this: https://saidit.net/s/saidit/about/rules/
Finally, we added the ability to sticky comments within posts. If you are the moderator of a sub, you can sticky a comment to the top of any thread in that sub. This is useful for announcement comments and automoderator comments. To enable this, you click 'distinguish' on the comment, then click 'yes & sticky'.
Just hours ago SaidIt had its 1,000th user account created. To everyone who is new, welcome to SaidIt and we hope you enjoy the site!
