I think it's absolutely terrific there are younger folks interested in more than just fashion and entertainment, etc. Those are fine, but there's so much more to life too - which I expect is why you're on SaidIt.

The result of this survey seem no different with how I predicted on this website, cismale more than cisfemale 2 times (I won't wonder if it's more than 3 times).

And many 4X years old people on here, it looks too mature for me.

SaidIt Survey : Would you like important SaidIt info in a prominent position? (Like the light grey field in this /s/SaidItSurvey sidebox, perhaps smaller.) magnora7 and d3rr curated, it would link to the latest SaidIt news, warnings, must-see recommendations, code bounties, the wiki-FAQ, and donate. by JasonCarswell in SaidItSurveys

[–]JasonCarswell[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Subjective importance, yes.

If M7D3 say it's important I believe them.

Objective existential importance is another thing. If the only 2 SaidIt founders and admins, M7D3, say the site is going down for 12 hours starting at 4:20 CST fer muh reazonz, then you might say all subjectivity will also be shut down for 12 hours. I'm not expecting another DDoS attack but they are planning to move servers to Switzerland soon, among other admin things I'm clueless about.

Another example: Let's say they come up with a new rule for bots. Or streaming. Meanwhile all the cricket/MMA/crokinole livestream pirates flood in here unknowingly breaking all the new rule and get this site put in some kind of ICANN limbo. Oops, wish we'd known.

Censorship is getting worse, and a early warning system might be good.

They could even put other statistics there. Site health: red-yellow-green. Number of registered users: "more than yesterday" 12,4821. Alexa rating: global rank #73,008 today (#501,249 90 days ago)2 , [It seems, largely due to MMA streams.]

You could do a lot of distracting things.

Good point. Maybe you could create a scrolling banner consisting of letters, which were barely perceptible to most readers (think 0.005 ∆ on the color wheel)

Those with a keen enough awareness could haplessly ponder the shifting pixilation.

I just wanted to present important information in an accessible way.

I'd also considered in the header too, on the right side there's room for another menu.

I noticed. I asked M7 to add the FAQ. I don't know if anyone notices the footer. While I obviously like wikis, I don't mind being the main one working on them, but it feels a little weird. I'm not hogging the stage if there's no one in the theatre. I'd be happier to share the stage or get off it and watch sometimes. I've been frustrated with the wiki limits and my projects but I'm making it work and am happy it's here. I don't need my wikis to be prominent and noticed. My main concern is to bring forward the FAQ for folks, as well as remind them of a fantastic underutilized feature. The same goes for the "donate" link. I really really think you should add that (then make code bounties).

My light-grey box may be too tall (I intentionally made it big to grab your attention). If you look at the SaidIt Surveys sidebox with 6 bullet points - I was thinking like that height or less, and that size font. With a table you could have even more links if you want.

Post of the week is good. Maybe you guys want to draw our attention to your fave conversations, etc. I'd thought of that myself but didn't want to impose more work for you guys.

Music and other stuff is good. I hadn't thought of making a "Best Of SaidIt" list or directory thing but that'd be neat - and might be better to whip it up on a full page wiki, rather than just a little box. (It's almost starting to sound like compiling articles for a newspaper or, dare I say, /s/SaidItWeekly or /s/SaidItMonthly and it's animated series!)

I still haven't finished categorizing all the subs in /s/SaidIt/wiki/multisubs . It will still be a while. I'm chipping away at it a bit at a time. Sometimes it's painfully tedious manual shit, sometimes it's good mindless work while listening to other newsy stuff, working out my OCD tendencies.

Maybe I'm delusional but I believe the multisubs/categorization thing will eventually be a tremendous asset to SaidIt, one way or another. Whether they do or not, I can only hope others might actually utilize it somehow. I'm hoping it might also be a step up over Reddit. Unless they already do that or have metatags.

But I forget to look there. Also, there's a bunch of non-important stuff in /s/SaidIt too.

Besides the chat thing, it'd be nice to see when the SaidIt-important news drops, rather than reacting weeks late sometimes. Maybe that's just me. Maybe it's just my fear of missing out.

All great news. Glad to hear it.

These things would be nice, but there's no hurry from my end. I was just checking for new subs, and it occurred to me that I should add it to my list of surveys to draft. Then I figured, why list it, just post it.

I check about once a week on average, sometimes more, sometimes less.

It's fun to see what people find "important" enough to make a sub. It's also annoying to see repeats, bad name choices, and lazy lower-cased titles. I get particularly happy when I see a sub that I can actually post to, especially if it's one I've wanted for a while.

I never check for new subs, I just go to /s/all and read the new posts, personally.

We would like saidit to have an "auto-subscribe to new subs" option, it's on saidit's official to-do list. The /s/subscribed page is the subs whitelist page. I do wish we had a user option to blacklist subs from view, but that's also on the to-do list :)

I've played with this idea before.. I think it comes down to whether or not there's enough meaningful content to put in it. I'll try to dig up my screenshot.

Anyway for the content:

  • The all music multisub link
  • SaidIt post of the week
  • ?

"show karma breakdown by sub / saiditter for 5 months"

November 15 to next week will finish 6 months, starting 7.

I never looked at karma breakdown before. If anything it validates my lack of interest in the numbers. I don't post to AskSaidIt, quotes, or memes much compared to all my other content yet they are at the top.

FYI: The Saidit Chat was rebooted - so if you're wondering what the jokes were that I'd made up and posted while everyone was asleep - copy-pasta...


21:49:56 Q: What do you learn at University that prepares you for life?

21:50:04 A: How to make "safe spaces" under a bridge.

21:51:47 Q: How many government workers serve the corporatocracy?

21:51:55 A: All of "them".

21:54:20 I just had a nap and for some reason I woke up with 2 jokes in my head. Since my Trutherism 101 animated series is supposed to have comedy I thought I'd try them out but all I hear is... http://www.raandrade.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/IMG_1155.jpg [image of crickets]

21:55:31 Not even a misspelled lol or half a ha-ha?

21:56:20 Marriage... am I right? ...

22:00:02 I'm going to pretend there's no one here and this never happened. I'm going back to sleep.

22:09:36 Couldn't sleep. I'm here if anyone wants to talk about my failures as a comedian.

22:16:23 So Hitler a Jew and a Palestinian walk into a bar...

22:16:47 You'd think one of them would have ducked.

22:19:30 A: Fish

22:19:55 Q: How many surrealists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

22:20:10 This shit just got surreal.


I was on a rampage.

What do you think about the policies? About this issue, ie. longer wait between registrations, or other issues?

Exactly. That counts for a handful. It was almost addictive. But manic compulsion is like that. Thankfully for me usually in short bursts. This was over the course of an hour and some.

But it makes one wonder about all the registrations. There are a lot of users here, and definitely heavy contributors and many other names that pop up but its never seemed like 5k being active.

I'm not proposing any worse censorship than is already here. If you buy/sell weapons or drugs on SaidIt you will be censored. If you debase the discussion with name calling you will be censored.

I don't care about the bad words and have no intention of censoring them. I care about the future of free speech platforms, and in particular, I care about the elevated discourse on SaidIt. If there is a threat to the future of free speech platforms then I am concerned. Maybe this can simply be resolved in part by using more accurate descriptions about "The Jews", the most powerful and threatening collective on the planet. That's why I brought it up.

I'm not suggesting anyone stop talking about that collective, on political, religious, financial, media or whatever grounds. Just use better words with accuracy, without room for confusion, misinterpretation, or potential for censorship from outside forces. NOT silence.

I've asked if I'm overreacting. d3rr said not. Is d3rr not pushing censorship in bad form too?

I'm just discussing free speech and it's defensive strategies. And maybe folks can just say "the Zionists" instead of "the Jews". If they don't know the difference then they should learn because they know enough to be dangerous but not enough to be smart.

What tactics do you propose to resolve this dilemma, if it even is a dilemma worth worrying about? Maybe all we can do is brace and be vigilant and be prepared to act when acting is actually necessary.

Don't push your "agendas" and "forms" on me.

This is a hypocritical joke of a statement. This entire sub is your agenda, on the form that you painstakingly designed.

You are proposing censorship and that's a one way slippery slope. This is a plan to fail.

What are the specific actions that can be imposed by some outside agency? How have others been censored? Does that risk exist here?
Identify the risks and fix those vulnerabilities.

Free speech is a strength. Unless it is manipulated into a weakness.

I recognize that you are trying to help. However, I think that you are making the mistake by convoluding tactics and principles.

Tactic are actions to promote an outcome: Silencing voices (tactic) that are risky may increase the relative safety of this site (desired outcome but not guaranteed).

Supporting free speech is a principle. Any actions or tactics that sacrifice principled values are inherently contradictory, and should be avoided at all costs.

You may want to re-examine the proposed tactics.
Are you bolstering free speech, or are you undermining it? Are you proposing sacrificing free speech, because some agency is ambiguously threatening it's existence.

But the threat is demonstrably real in this case.

I still don't see this, but maybe we can mitigate this in other ways, like by having 'download/export my data' functionality.

They are censoring everyone everywhere. Death by a thousand cuts. I think they're ramping up for something much much much worse and testing us as they go. And passing ridiculous laws with force and the brainwashed masses behind them.

I don't know what downloading/exporting would do.

I catch up on hot every 3 days or so with a binge but now that I've lost where I was with this crash I guess I don't have to keep up anymore as it's broken my ties and record of where I was.

The quality is good. But there are those posts. They're not problem presently and maybe never will be. I honestly wouldn't give a shit if there wasn't the great looming threat. Fools gonna fool. And the boots gonna stomp the face of humanity forever.

I think the first one is just okay, made a little better with my modification

Yeah your version is better. I've been trying to get to the heart of this thing, and I think this is how it looks. I also think this would fail to pass in a vote of saidditers. And I assume that if someone were to harass/debate you with "dirty Jew" or "another Jew", that that would be prohibited by our existing rules.

But the threat is demonstrably real in this case.

I still don't see this, but maybe we can mitigate this in other ways, like by having 'download/export my data' functionality.

Cutting down the chaos keeps the quality up.

Agreed, but hows the quality on /s/hot ?? It's alright I think. Maybe you are reading every single post still so you have a bias?

Read the conversations.

d3rr proposed to clarify saidit policy with: "racial/ethic stereotyping or generalizations is low pyramid and forbidden"

I said it's not on target, "I'm only concerned about the future of SaidIt, and taking precautions now about things that may haunt us."

Maybe there's nothing to be done but be aware and be vigilant and ready should we actually need change.

Don't push your "agendas" and "forms" on me.

Exactly.

I know almost nothing about Jewish culture and the Talmud. But I've been brainwashed enough to know that anti-Semitism is bad and I never questioned that until a few years ago. (Not counting that I already knew most or many Arabs are Semites too, as I dated a Palestinian-Syrian girl in 2003-2004.) And most common folks and Jewish folks have this brainwashing too. That's why I want to avoid folks using "the Jews" generally.

I felt dirty using the worst thing I could think of for comparison. I've never said "the niggers" until I tried to make the substitute comparative point.

I completely understand the hypocrisy of this situation. Preemptively starting the Iraq War was stupid. Preemptively censoring folks on SaidIt is stupid. But the threat is demonstrably real in this case. While I still think preparation is a good thing, we can't prepare for every known and unknown potential threat.

So I'm happy you clarified that "unless there's a clear and present legal risk" there's no need to change. At least that's a clear foundation worth codifying.

While the second two points are funny, I think the first one is just okay, made a little better with my modification:

  • Clarify SaidIt policy: Racial/ethic stereotyping or generalizations, even if not used for name calling, is low pyramid and forbidden (3 warnings then a ban).

There remain problems with this. Who decides what's a stereotype and how, and which are acceptable and which offensive and why? And if a bunch of SJWs land on SaidIt will they then be able to "vote" us out for being offensive?

Again this diverts us.

I don't even care about being offended. There are no laws against offending or being offended. Yet I also like that SaidIt is a classy joint. Cutting down the chaos keeps the quality up.

On this matter I'm only concerned about the future of SaidIt, and taking precautions now about things that may haunt us.

I guess on this count I shall remain haunted by the potential of being haunted.

Meanwhile, I haven't bothered to figure out how to unblock MartinTimothy so all you suckers can deal with him while I go about SaidIt carefree (except for this haunting haunting).

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

there is religious foundation for them and hence are semi-defensible.

Ahh, I see where you are coming from. Imo it's still a stretch to claim that the Talmud is Jewish scripture... I think it's a secondary book that's referenced in synagogue like once a year. No doubt some minority sects/groups are heavily into it. And it's also not completely fair to assume that secular Jews give two shits or know two shits about the religious aspects.

So I'm opposed to any changes unless there's a clear and present legal risk. But having said that here's some ideas for enforcing content policies like this if you have to:

  • clarify saidit policy- racial/ethic stereotyping or generalizations is low pyramid and forbidden (3 warnings then a ban)
  • saidit alters text, "jews" is ninja edited to "(some) jews"
  • someone hands out a scarlet letter to racists so you see them less or never

Ugh I feel dirty even typing it.
