And they call us just another Reddit clone... won't be valid for much longer with SaidIt exclusive features like this.

Amen to that!

Are we still using the Reddit license? If not, can we license the new stuff under AGPL? (That's a clever little license that's like GPL, but hosting a website using it counts as distributing the software and will require the improved code to be provided to the site's users. It means Reddit can't nick the stuff without open-sourcing the new version of the site (like Aaron intended), among other things.)

Also, can we set New as the front page instead?

We're bound by CPAL I think. Changing licenses is way beyond me, but I'm leaning towards it can't be changed. https://github.com/reddit-archive/reddit/blob/master/LICENSE

New is a sort, not a sub. But yes, we could add a default sort preference, that'd be really cool. So if you set new, every sub you went to, you'd be on the new tab.

No, looks like that would be very tricky. Oh well.

Maybe we can develop an option to make /new the front page too.

I'm not sure on your licensing issues, can you expand on what you mean please?

Never mind; re-read the license, and there's a clause about "External Deployment".

I mean, the duel upvote system is already significantly unique on its own!

Great! (but now people who unsubscribed for this sub will never see it!)

Don't worry, /all is still the front page for visitors and everyone who hasn't changed the option in their user accounts :) The default is still /all
