Good move on removing greymarket from the home. It was getting to the point where every other post was from there

Glad you like it. Yeah exactly, it was too much. It felt like I was wading through a bazaar to find my news.

I was having a hard time wanting to direct people from other sites here because of the whole grey market vending and beef going on in that sub I always looked at that sub on front page as very off putting for people who are looking for a more personal experience. I am not trying to diminish the value of grey market I think it is very important for people to procure the goods they need when otherwise unavailable, I just don’t think it should be front page material , new people come and say I was looking for aww cute not clam and clam powder

Yeah I understand completely, I have also been a bit embarrassed by the front page for a couple weeks now. I'm glad we made the change, now we can have the community we want to have!

We need youtube links and imgur links to have drop down options to view so we can stay on the page and not have to redirect to linked page.

Yeah I agree. It's called expando, and it's a feature of RES we hope to port to saidit soon. It's high on the to-do list, but I'll bump it up a little more because I agree it's a bit annoying not to have it.

I've been looking around and haven't been able to find the answer for myself: is there any way to make the home page default to only the subs that we've subscribed to?

ninja edit: I love seeing all the weekly progress going on here, keep up the great work!

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (5 children)

nope, there's currently no way to do that but /s/subscribed has only your subs. you could adjust things in RES if you really wanted to.

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

Maybe we could eventually add a user profile option to set /s/subscribed as their home page if the user wants

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

That would be great, because that's one feature about reddit that I can appreciate is having reddit.com directly go to my subscribed subs. Having that here, and still having the home IRC channel there would be great, because that's what's currently missing by doing a little workaround.

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

yeah that would be challenging but I think doable. maybe offer the option for all to be your home too.

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

yeah, makes sense to me. We could even just leave the URL functionality alone and have a quick redirect to /s/all or /s/subscribed if they have the box checked. So you go to saidit.net and it loads up saidit.net/s/all if you have that selected as your home page, and the URL displays saidit.net/s/all. I don't think it's necessary to mask that as saidit.net, which would be more complicated. Just thinking out loud, I'll add it to the to-do wiki

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

yeah, that could work for sure. it would be a little slower, but that might be the best we can do. as long as we dont redirect everyone or mess up seo.

Well chat is pretty active which is cool to see. The server load seems to be doing alright still.

Also if you guys don't know, you can make a multisub with just a link/url, the opposite of AllMinus: https://saidit.net/s/gardening+11MRadio+C_S_T

We need to eventually get listed on this site sharing service as an add to option:

That's probably a good idea. Do you think those drive a significant amount of traffic?

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

Not really. I'm just saying it out of convenience because that is how I personally share links. One less copy and paste procedure. I can't imagine it would hurt though. When I left Digg it was in large part because Reddit was set up with all the group social media buttons that Digg had. Something to work on down the line. I contacted them a few months ago and I don't think I heard back. It's just a plug in or add on for Firefox browser.

Oh gotcha. Good to know, we'll look in to it
