Hey thank you a lot for the insight, you made me realise something I hadn't even considered. I totally get what you mean about clickbait and whatnot - I'm not fond of it, it's just the same title format I'm used to on that site whose name starts with an R and ends with a T. Will be keeping titles much more straightforward from now on.

Happy to be here and happy to have you showing interest in my posts! I'm really glad the atmosphere is much more positive here than other forums - it's really uplifting and I hope it encourages newcomers to the site to stay :)

Hey I totally know what you mean! I developed some bad habits from reddit too, but thankfully saidit gives us the space to step out of that crazy culture and create a better one. Pretend you're a news reporter trying to be as clear as possible to people who only read headlines, that helps me sometimes. The more specific proper nouns, the better.

I'm glad you find the environment uplifting, that's good to hear. That's one of the things I find so frustrating about reddit, it's just so negative and it's hard to have a reasonable discussion about anything. It's like swimming upstream. Very different from how it was 6-10 years ago. We're lucky to have this opportunity with saidit to bring back the spirit of old reddit, with real conversations between thoughtful people. It's nice to see people take that seriously, because it does matter.

MDE was a shitposting sub though and changing that would basically make it a different sub. It was uniquely a counter culture shitposting sub so I wouldn't really lump it in with the rest of reddit culture. It had a lot of quality content disguised as a shit post. It was a unique place.
