None. saidit.com is for sale for around $7k but saidit.net was available.

[–]Orangutan 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (20 children)

So the advantage is that it was less expensive? Makes sense. If you could raise the $7k or get it from a donor would you buy saidit.com or prefer that?

[–]d3rr 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (19 children)

Yeah we prefer the .com and would get it if possible.

Do you all have any plans for a "gold" type system or other forms of donation/income? I'd love to donate to a "startup" like this that doesn't rely on massive corporate adverts and buyouts like whats been happening over at reddit.

Edit: I just found the patreon and subscribed.

Thanks man!

We don't have plans for a gold type system, but we may offer browser crypto mining as another way to contribute directly to the site.

Thanks for becoming a patreon for saidit! Much appreciated! It means a lot to us to have support to help pay for the costs of keeping this site alive. Thank you so much!

Why? It indicates a site being a company which, for me at least, indicates an alterior motive of extracting revenue from users to an inordinate extent.

[–]d3rr 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (12 children)

I guess for no good reason, just for .com seeming more legit. Great point. I guess we stumbled into the right domain name for us. Unless it should be saidit.org.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_top-level_domains

.org

Originally intended for use by non-profit organizations, and still primarily used by some.

.net

Originally intended for use by domains pointing to a distributed network of computers, *or "umbrella" sites that act as the portal to a set of smaller websites.

[–]magnora7[S] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (8 children)

Saidit.org is already taken. But saidit.co (similar to voat.co) is available for cheap. Maybe we should think about getting that one too

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

Sit on it quick! Then make a redirect.

And all the others you can.

If it helps, I can send you the BitCoin James Corbett gave me a year ago or more. I think it was 0.1 or 0.01 BTC and at the time he said it was worth $10 USD. Last month I checked and it's worth about $50 (USD or CAD I don't recall). I drafted him an email to ask if I should keep sitting on it, give it back to him, buy some drugs or truther books or gear or something, or give it to SaidIt - but I haven't sent it as I was waiting for a good video to post it to or to send it privately and risk it being lost forever (he's not so good with emails).

I also have that Namecoin if you want it to trade for BTC or to use for a ZeroNet domain.

Also, did Ryan reach you? He asked for your email. He's easy to get on his Discord chat at : https://discordapp.com/channels/428399448993824768/428399448993824770

[–]magnora7[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

Yeah we might do that! A donation would definitely be appreciated!

Are you talking about Ryan formerly from The Tin Foil Hat show? I haven't been in touch, but I'd sure like to. He can email me, but I never ever really check that email. It's magnora7@mail.com. He can message me on reddit or saidit as well, with the account magnora7. I'd be much more likely to see that. I might set up a discord

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

I can expedite the transfer if A) you need it ASAP or B) you will get those domains. Otherwise I was just going to sit on it until TCR does another episode on crypto, solutions, etc or anything remotely related to SaidIt's perview. Unless I can bribe Corbett with his own bitcoin to interview you.

I can do the Namecoin immediately if you set it up. The guy who donated it to me hoped I'd start a ZeroNet site, whatever that entails. I'd rather you did that than change it for bitcoin but that's up to you. I'd like to email him about whatever you do with it.

Yes, Ryan Dawson, the ANCReport (Anti-NeoCon). (He has terrible weak branding.) He's been everywhere from old RT, Corbett, TFH, Know More News, etc etc etc. (Not to be confused with Ryan Cristian, also on Discord, the Last American Vagabond (TLAV) that I'm still occasionally poking to interview you too.)

Vimeo shut Ryan Dawson down, stole $5k and that income from his pay-per-view service. So he's hurting a bit from that. You both could benefit from cross-promotion.

He has some STRONG (impatient) views on 9/11 with extensive research into it. It's not hard to say holograms and space beams are silly, but one of the things he defends is the saggy beam pancake thing created by a furnace environment burning hotter than just an oil lamp with kerosene (close to jet fuel) or a Coleman stove with white gas (hotter). (I spin fire poi and do fire breathing.) He thinks that was enough to bring the buildings down. I'm not convinced of that, yet.

Dawson's Discord chat is like a cross between SaidIt, 4Chan, and Alt-Right Anti-Semites. It's a little too hostile for my tastes but they post good and/or funny stuff on occasion when I feel motivated to browse and repost here.

OMG & WTF? It's crazy busy on Discord today. Too many posts. I'll repost them here tomorrow. Then I'm basically quitting that distraction for a while. I just gave your email to both Ryans.

Cool thanks for the info and contacting the Ryans lol.

We probably won't set up namecoin soon, I don't have a good way to set a wallet up quickly for it right at the moment, but we have a lot of other options beyond bitcoin on our cryptocurrency donation page at the footer.

Also, FYI, I don't recall which Ryan Discord chat prompted me to respond to how to deal with discord, but to both Ryans' chats I posted the Debate Pyramid and the programmer dude it's named after, and of course a plug for SaidIt. I think this may have grabbed Dawson's attention. Maybe not. I think it's worth promoting in general anyway.

And, when he asks about your odd name, don't forget to mention the 6 other times you were censored. We live in an open prison state/planet. (AJ stole the good names.)

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

Exactly what I was thinking. .org

I'll dig up and share my lists with you from November or December that I shared with m7.

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

I was never a company and I had a .com from 2001-2011 ish. It's the default.

I'd like to see SaidIt get a .org for real freeshpeaches.

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

Months ago I privately messaged magnora7 a list of clever and semi-clever domains that were available for cheap, on the off chance that he needed multiple domains to mirror on should "they" try to shut one or more down. Feel free to ask him for them. Maybe you'll want to sit on them if he hasn't.

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

Have you tried talking them down? Assuming you have a significant chunck to throw at it?

[–]d3rr 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Haven't tried and there's no budget, but yeah they could probably be talked down.

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

After the iPhone app and whatever other things you're working on, and you're ready to take the next giant leap or need more server backups or whatever you could do a fundraising survey, before a real fundraising, to determine top priorities and goals, including getting the .com before they hike the price or whatevs.

Also, my projects are a loooong way from pulling anyone in, but hopefully with a modicum of success they will, as well as hopefully raise funds.
