I hope Voat makes it because diversity and choices in free speech platforms are good for everybody, but if I was a voater I'd be awfully suspicious. Didn't puttitout announce like a year ago he was going to give Voat the tools to run itself so he could step back? Now he's all in and has user's best interests at heart whilst negotiating secret deals. And he did not respond to questions about founder Atko. Hmm...

Thanks Trump. Can we end Yemen too or are we not allowed to talk about that now that the farm bill has passed?

Decentralizing SaidIt by JasonCarswell in SaidIt

[–]d3rr 5 insightful - 1 funny5 insightful - 0 funny6 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Approaches:

  • blockchain and etherium-like approach (and some non-blockchain storage) - people run bits of infrastructure or miners to improve overall saidit network health
  • mastodon/federated approach - people run independent instances which share content
  • it's all hype and will slow down the site - saidit offers an export of all public data so anyone can pop up a copy of the site and that's enough

Unsolved:

  • private messages
  • private subs
  • moderation / rule enforcement

Giving it a go:

Fake news. The CIA runs everything via proxy. Bots and admins and dirty mods and the Atlantic Council, oh my.

Very nice. People always attack these lists' accuracy, but this citizenship info is not public information afaik so these lists must be manually researched and assembled. I'd call this the most important non verified list ever, it should not be dismissed even if Bernie is on it or it's 90% accurate.

Yessir I tried to make decent instructions for doing so and everything. It's kind of beastly to setup but the performance is great.

Tulsi Gabbard announces 2020 run by Orangutan in politics

It sounds like she's putting anti-war front and center rather than something like the green new deal. Sounds like a strong message that could beat Trump and a smart move by the Dems.

I remain skeptical due to her CFR membership which they will shadowban you on YouTube for politely asking about.

Damnit we got flagged... maybe the store listing being flagged is preventing the new version from being released, or maybe it's unrelated.

Real-life, simulated, or fantasy subjects portrayed with:
Clothing that provides excessively tight, or minimal coverage of breasts, buttocks, or genitalia
Sexually suggestive poses
Disproportionately large breasts, buttocks, or genitals
Breasts, buttocks, or genitals that extend past the border of the icon
Inappropriate text in metadata or logos, like profanity or crude and offensive terms
Graphic violence prominently depicted in app icons, promotional images, or videos

I guess I see "shit" in one of our screenshots...

Yes, Reddit has us beaten down so hard with ban happy mods that we don't classify correctly anymore. I'm in the middle of deconditioning myself too.

What's one thing you've done to ride out all the Google algo waves over the years? by onemananswerfactory in SEO

[–]d3rr 4 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 0 funny5 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

We invite Google and whoever to come cache our site, so that's too bad if they don't have the site indexed. There's no way that I know of to tell Google hey come crawl this page.

What we need to do is work on a legit sitemap so that search engines get an idea of our organization/subs and are more encouraged to crawl the whole site.

Yes, search is post tiles only just like on Reddit. People have long complained about this. I'd be willing to put some effort into this, I think comments could be searchable too. Lots of work though.

I have a branding system in there that will handle about 80% of cases for you... at least for rebranding saidit to yoursaidit (search the code for 'brander_site').

I originally intended to maintain an upgraded vanilla reddit in addition to saidit, but there was just no interest. I thought there were other literal reddit clones still out there but I guess it's just us.

I assume their caching is shit or it wouldn't cost that much. If they are still using .NET on Windows rather than mono on Linux that would explain some of it too. And they were originally hosted in Germany. Face palms all around.

Thanks for sharing. So Puttitout removed a janitor/mod lite user for asking if there is a delete script for a future potentiality when the site is no longer free, ouch. Reading a little deeper there's theories that this isn't the real Puttitout and thus no one has access to the twitter account. Not looking good for Voat, and Gab has fallen too.

Thanks man. Yeah RedReader seems to be well written so the porting wasn't all that bad. Supporting our two dimensional voting model was the most involved bit and the most time consuming.
