Saidit Rules for Moderators by magnora7 in SaidIt

It doesn't have to be in bad faith. Think a "duplicate" or "repost" rule. Often there are dozens of articles released by different websites covering the same issue. Some reddit subs resorted to removing them in favor of containing them all in one thread.

Does saidit have no mechanism for changing moderators? by UmamiTofu in SaidIt

You must be thinking of another sub. https://old.reddit.com/r/worldpolitics/ turned into a meme sub due to lack of moderation. People complained about it for years then finally gave up and left.

It's very easy for subs like that to become biased echo-chambers with the wrong mod

I agree, which is why moderation is an important topic that needs to be fixed for any reddit alternative to succeed https://old.reddit.com/r/RedditAlternatives/comments/ay0bc3/what_is_one_feature_you_expect_every_reddit/ehy9aka/. So far I think saidit has a way to go before solving all the problems with reddit.

For example, the problem of "random people who got there first" controlling subs isn't a solved problem here.

Tildes is doing some nice things, but the lack of ability to create a community like /r/fecaltransplant or /r/FMTClinics for example, means they're not a valid replacement in my case.

why would we want more active moderators, and replicate their failed system?

Well reddit subs without active moderation typically turn into low quality fluff. Compare /r/worldpolitics to /r/neutralpolitics. 0 moderation vs heavy moderation. But they mostly have the heavy moderation done right. Whereas other subs like /r/science and /r/askscience have heavy moderation done wrong.

As a disclaimer, I'm not highly familiar with those subs. But IMO, leave that stuff on voat. No need to drown another site in racism and hate.

Probably more important to grow the site (more users) than encourage more activity from people already here.

Personally, I can contribute some science/health stuff, but I'm undecided between here and Tildes and don't have the time to post to both. I'm waiting for this before moving from reddit: https://archive.fo/VleIc#selection-799.0-799.1

or you get both numbers on the same row and it's visually confusing

I dunno, you might want to poll the community with that question/suggestion. I think it may be worthwhile to have some temporary confusion.

Also, there are votes on the side for the submission, but not the comments, so I wonder how it might impact the comment section.

I think it can still be disabled via sub CSS but that's up to the mods of that sub

Only for desktop users, and more and more people are using their telephones to browse the internet. It's a problem I'm currently having with reddit. There's no way to do stuff like disable downvotes for mobile users it seems.

And mobile users seem much more likely to vote without commenting, which makes the situation worse.

Will it though? My suggestion would be to move the "fun" vote from below to side-by-side. New people coming from reddit will still likely see and use it as a replacement downvote.

Also, it would be nice if it could be disabled for serious subs. On reddit you can disable downvote with CSS but it doesn't work for mobile users: https://archive.fo/tJBJ2

I'm not sure. I'm not knowledgeable enough on that to comment.

But I am very knowledgeable on antibiotics and the microbiome, and to me antibiotics seem like a much bigger threat/harm.

That's a misleading statement on your part.

You have to look at the rates of vaccine injury vs rates of injury from the diseases the vaccines protect against. You also have to look at the severity of the injuries.

I think the science backing the gut microbiome as the causative factor is the strongest: https://old.reddit.com/r/HumanMicrobiome/wiki/intro#wiki_autism.3A

Though the gut microbiome also impacts vaccine efficacy & immune system: https://old.reddit.com/r/HumanMicrobiome/wiki/immunesystem

You're misinformed about vaccines. You have a tremendous amount of information at your fingertips via a simple web search. Use that instead of making ignorant guesses.

EDC = endocrine disrupting chemical. https://www.who.int/ceh/risks/cehemerging2/en/

Highlights

• Doxycycline may be EDCs through mitochondrial dysfunction mechanism cause endocrine disruption.

• Early-life exposure to doxycycline shows negative outcomes of testis health in later-life.

• Early-life exposure to low-dose of doxycycline associates with increased risk of obesity.

Abstract

Veterinary tetracyclines drugs are emerging organic pollutants detected at high concentrations in the urine of school children and a potential public health risk. However, the implications of early-life exposure to tetracyclines on testosterone production, being new endocrine disruptors, remain unknown. We investigated whether the early-life exposure to low-doxycycline, a widely used tetracycline, on mitochondria dysfunction and testosterone disruption in Leydig cells in vitro and in vivo. Next, we determined the mRNA levels of testis cells markers for early-life exposure to low-doxycycline outcomes of testis health in later-life. Finally, we compared the weight gain performance exposed to low- and therapeutic-doses through 15 weeks and examined the role of the microbiota during development. Our results showed doxycycline disturbed steroidogenesis process by mitochondrial dysfunction in mouse Leydig tumor cell line (MLTC-1) cells in vitro. Leydig cells mitochondrial function was disrupted by early-life exposure to low-doxycycline from birth to 49 days, causing testosterone deficiency and decreased quality of the sperm in mice. Early-life exposure to low-doxycycline significantly altered the mRNA levels of key genes in Leydig cells (Cyp11a1, Cyp17a1 and 17β-HSD) and spermatogenic cells (Grfal, Plzf, and Stra8) in later-life in mice. Subchronic low- and therapeutic-doses doxycycline changed gut microbiota differences in diversity reduction and compositional alteration. Moreover, the weight gain effects of doxycycline were only observed in low-dose in male mice. Overall, these results provide insight into the effects of doxycycline on both testis and gut microbiota health. The results provide insight that environmental antibiotics are needed additional research to classify as ECDs.

Subs dominating topics is part and parcel of the sub system, it's how it works, for better or worse.

We have the random sub button, that can help people discover stuff. Also the /all page. What do you imagine other than that?

I think what I quoted Darto doing seems pretty easy and great.

For example, instead of subscribing people to all subs, have a page of categories, so when they choose "science" they get a page full of science-related subs to choose from. Probably with the name of each sub should be a short description that can be used to differentiate them.

Subs dominating topics is part and parcel of the sub system, it's how it works, for better or worse.

I think this is a pretty major flaw of reddit that can and should be addressed.

RES for saidit - supports Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and Edge by magnora7 in SaidIt

[–]MaximilianKohler 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What do you want to use the most from RES?

I guess mostly the tags and vote tallies on individual users. I use the macros a lot on reddit.

I don't really notice stuff till it's gone, but looking through the settings the formatting links is another. New comment count + highlighting of new comments.

/r/toolbox addon is just as important as RES IMO.

On this page https://saidit.net/subs it would be nice to have a "1-50 of 226". As is, there's only a "next" button with no indication of how many pages or total subs.

Also, any plans on preventing one sub from dominating a topic? Such as /s/science vs /s/sciences? On reddit, the latter one would virtually never be able to compete.

Darto for example is trying to address this via:

through a Discover page where users can find new and trending communities, a global tag system so one community doesn't own a specific topic

Also, I think somewhere else you linked to a page of your "to do" list, but maybe add that link to this OP?

I've been following the microbiome literature very closely, and the wiki here is very extensive as well.

List of source of strains:

EDIT: here's a project with a list of strains that /u/markus_naslund has started: https://old.reddit.com/r/HumanMicrobiome/comments/aceyab/commercially_available_probiotic_strain_database/

You can PM me for additions so I can keep this updated. If google will not tell you the source you'll have to contact the company and ask. The vast majority are food-sourced so it might be easier to just keep a list of human-sourced.

We have to keep in mind that there is a difference between strains sourced from human stool (which may be transient environmental microbes) and strains sourced from the intestinal wall (which are more likely to be host native). Then we have to keep in mind that not every human-sourced probiotic will be beneficial, or significantly so. Which is why I primarily focus on FMT, and wait till there are proven benefits for new/old strains and simply list the main ones here.
