You are automatically subscribed to all subs here when making an account. You can unsubscribe from everything in preferences and choose your subs individually if you wish.

May I ask why that's a thing? Seems like a hassle for a new user to unsubscribe from hundreds of subs they're not interested in. I liked the reddit approach of a small set of default subs better.

I've just made an account and had to remove like 300 subs I didn't care about, and right now Saidit is still new and has few users, so 300 is a very small number. When it grows up, new users will have to remove thousands of subs, if not more, making it nearly impossible to follow the ones they care about.
