Great idea:

"Reddit threads automatically lock after 6 months and can no longer be voted or commented on. Saidit threads never automatically lock, regardless of how old they are."

Thanks!

and... Always a good reminder: How Reddit Was Destroyed

Great post, I hadn't seen the newest version. This is exactly how I remember it going down.

When reddit changed the voting system and people were on their last nerve with this site, a place called Whoaverse (now https://voat.co/) became popular overnight. It is basically a reddit clone and at the time was run by one guy. He was happy about the surge but mentioned it was going to be hard to keep up with, but was committed to making it happen. Guess what happened next?

Did you guess: “Thousands of targeted spam attacks to overload and destroy the website”? Then congrats, you now understand how far these fucks are willing to go to keep the herd in their pen. Hijacking a cool brand and using it’s facade to conduct propaganda games is extremely profitable, just ask VICE. Super secret link. And once you have the customer, it costs much less to keep them than to acquire new ones. So we are seeing online guerrilla tactics designed to destroy the competition by any means.

Luckily we have cloudfare r..right?

Yup we are protected by cloudflare. We also can ban people by IP address.

Nice one. Also don't hesitate to vote things as funny if they're funny. "Downvote" is removed entirely, voting things as funny increases their score and helps them to rise in sorts like hot and top.

Good point, and if something violates the pyramid of debate, you can 'report' it and the mods of that sub will have a look at it.

Some creative artist should cleverly incorporate a subtle and humorous "Aye!" to the text at the top of the pyramid of debate.

Just kidding.

That's great! Do you know the character's name?

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Nope

This is great info. I appreciate the day/night mode button. This feature should be present on every forum based website. Unfortunately, this would let people unwind and sleep; which may affect the corporate bottom line. So it's unlikely to catch on.

Awards all around!

Instead of gray, total black for the ones who have amoled screens. Internet savy sites usually have this feature.

Yo! I'm on the amoed screen too. However, I won't let perfection be the enemy of the good (cred: to Voltaire).
This is an upgrade from the status quo; and I'm loving it!

Can I make a shoplifting sub?

[–]Tom_Bombadil 2 insightful - 4 funny2 insightful - 3 funny3 insightful - 4 funny -  (0 children)

You should make a liftshopping sub that is dedicated to the various aspects of purchasing and repairing elevators.

Thanks for this post. It's interesting to see how big of a difference small changes make. I'm looking forward to this place growing.

By the way, in the third bullet point the "saidit.net/new" link takes you to a broken page ("saidit.net/net).

Ah thanks, fixed it.
