Looks like this is an alpha version for now - I see no way to upvote/downvote, no user profile/settings, no /r/all/new equivalent etc.

Apparently the same (or pretty similar) website was called 20-things.com before, it was listed in /r/RedditAlternatives/ list.

Good post, thanks.

All sites with .win are censored on Facebook/Messenger, last time I used it 8+ months ago.

Alexa is no more:

I'd like to say that it was because we called out the bullshit, but I really doubt it.

They are much bigger than these alternatives, patriots.win alone is 6.4M visits. But

1) they use a lot of domains and SimilarWeb is domain-based, so I would have to manually add them like voat.xyz+talk.lol

2) this is a personal list of old reddit-like alternatives, which I theoretically could join, and I wouldn't like to be governed by Trump cultists, so I didn't include them when started this

It's easy to manually look them up like this if you are curious:

https://www.similarweb.com/website/patriots.win/#traffic

https://www.similarweb.com/website/communities.win/#traffic

Do they actually use scored.co btw?

Good to know!

If you don't mind, I have a few questions.

Is Wolfballs federated with other Lemmy instances?

Do you develop custom code, on Lemmy, and/or other platforms?

I have no code skills, limited geek skills, good general knowledge, and a lot of ideas about how decentralized social media might and needs to better evolve. Interested?

It's probably hard to compare directly, Similarweb's "visits" are not "views", it's user sessions defined in some specific way:

Similarweb calculates a visit (session) for a website when a visitor accesses one or more pages. Subsequent page views are included in the same visit until the user is inactive for more than 30 minutes. If a user becomes active again after 30 minutes, that counts as a new visit. A new session will also start at midnight.

https://support.similarweb.com/hc/en-us/articles/212999769-Total-Visits

These are estimations from their limited data anyway (browser extensions which sell browsing history, DNS data from internet providers and so on), could be wrong 2x-3x in both directions (underestimated/overestimated). Just it's fun to compare these stats over months :)

Agreed. It would be nice to muster a team to develop and share a "Best Of SaidIt" Weekly and/or Monthly for folks who don't have the time nor interest in deep dives or dredging through all the repetitive news to find the best one on an issue. IMO this idea has the potential to generate income for SaidIt so that we may expand resources and set code-bounties to add functionality to SaidIt and beyond.

Federating on Lemmy with other instances, different communities could submit their top 3 (or whatever) articles/issues into a regular federated news summary source.

Plus the built-in censorship can be removed. These two other instances give us hope for federating the "deplorables" and maybe a Libré-Lemmy fork, aka Tard-Spork.

The problem with the template is that certain 'bad' words have been hard coded out. Removed that.

From the comments:

Hardcoded slur blocklists are embarrasing and show that those who implemented it understand very little about how languages and open source work.

If you're just lurking, the reddit frontend https://teddit.net works great. It's quick and lightweight, and you can subscribe to subreddits using multis or cookies. Doesn't support accounts or posting though.

You and me both. I think we should take back reddit tho. Not as an end be all, but I'm not sure whats going on here. A moderated subreddit could handle all of the users here easily, it'd just be a small sub at this point.

I'm perusing Saidit in the hopes a better site gets recommended. I have yet to see a better site get recommended.

I don't trust Alexa at all. Last year I discovered they were fudging the numbers. The graph in blue looks like it's straightened out for some reason but I think it's just controlled. I stopped doing the charts when I wasn't getting admin help on InfoGalactic, plus I forgot, and it's tedious.

On the other hand I found that SimilarWeb continued to be fair and apparently accurate.

So either Saidit is getting dumber, or Ruqqus is getting smarter, or the distribution spread changed while they stayed put.

Alexa still claims it counts only "Alexa users," whatever that counts as nowadays. It doesn't count me, anyway.

Seems like we're down to roughly 40 contributors now, down over half, by my estimate. That's just me eyeballing.

As far as I know, nobody has yet heard from M7, it's been 18 days now.

And at this point I feel I kinda have to be on reddit for stonks and crypto. It's nice the app doesn't suck any more. And you can earn crypto there now from posting.

Still, got all those extreme left wingers and shitty mods, but with the influx of investors, who tend to have conservative values, it's bringing some balance back.

All in all, this seems terrible for Saidit.

Poal was literally worse than Reddit on censorship, so I consider them worthless. I don't care about Nazis unless they are in control and exercise censorship like on Poal.

Good posts and lots of commenters, but the admins are worse than saidit. If they disagree with something you say, or if you upvote someone they dislike, they will 'nuke' your account by putting your point score at -100. This disables your ability to vote, click on user names, or send private messages. You also get a 'suspicious behavior' tag on your user name.

Poal is a Nazi totalitarian cesspool with no free speech.

I can confirm from my own experience there.

Lol look at that graph: https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hive.blog

They went from 800k place to 35k place in 90 days. I guess the migration was a success...

They finally dealt with the steem creators unethically premining like half of the steem currency. Steem got sold and the new owner tried to cash it in or power play it or something.

Oh is that right? The fact it's hard to keep track of what's going on probably isn't good for steemit

I think there's a new preferred steemit site, after a forking, hive or something, I kinda lost track of what was going on.

Just noticed this. I haven't been there a while, I know they've been having problems with shills because of how the site rewards money for the top posts, but apparently korean language-speakers have taken over the website as that makes up the overwhelming majority of the posts on the site now.

I didn't see that one coming!

Also important are the federated sites for greater decentralization. They are separate now, but perhaps they will all eventually form a federated hive mind of sorts.

Great list!

That would also be great in a wiki.

Are information sites comparable? ie. WikiSpooks, Wikipedia, Quora, etc. I guess the whole internet is a research tool.

I like everything in Katcafe :

  • The fact that you don't even an account to post or comment while still receiving notifications
  • The top-left box which permit to quicly change country/languages. You get the exact same website/subs but ina different language. Could be nice to get this in SaidIt too.
  • The way a post is displayed. By posting a new link, you create a new topic. The link stay small at the bottom of the thumbail.

There are some really good ideas here I think. The problem is that the website is empty.
