We get about 550 posts a day and about 4000 comments a day, and those numbers double about every 5 months. So if it's too dead now, just check back in a few months

Hmm.. I've assumed hostilities to be more knee-jerk than pre-meditated. But it could be an underestimation.

I had this same underestimation when I first came in to being a saidit admin.

However an additional consideration is that even if it is knee-jerk, sometimes making them aware of it still doesn't help, because they're angry in that very moment. This is an instance where I think like a 72 hour ban might be a good thing to have. We don't have the functionality of timer bans, but that is something we could potentially build someday.

If you had clearly expressed what the problem is, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

This is the last time I will state it.

You need to stop attacking other users. You need to stop anything that even remotely resembles trolling. And you need to stop acting as if you're some sort of admin. Stop giving me and others advice about saidit when you clearly don't know what you're talking about. And if in doubt, don't say anything.

This is what I'm asking of you. Not going to state it again. Act right. You have 2 strikes. We are not revisiting this discussion again, I've said what needs to be said, and all that's left is to see you act appropriately and act with respect toward saidit and the users on saidit. I've given you so much leeway but I don't have infinite tolerance for this type of behavior. The way you act sometimes causes far more problems than it solves, and I think you know that.

Now that that's clear, goodbye. No more discussion is needed.

I know, but he "genuinely misunderstands" so frequently and then speaks with authority that it's constantly creating administrative messes and misunderstandings that I have to clean up, and it's exhausting. Months and months of this.

Even if it is unintentional, it has caused me an awful lot of headaches over the last few months. It's the long-term pattern of doing this that makes me frustrated, not just this one instance.

How come you didn't respond to any of my reports?

Not every report deserves a response.


Well, you lied before just then, and are now pretending it didn't happen.

And you know that, and you say that far too often about many people.

I actually very very rarely call anyone a liar, I honestly can't think of the last time I did it. So there again you made up a lie to smear me!

Saying nothing is actually a much better and more helpful option than making up lies.

Now when you paste in a URL for a post, and then click out of the URL field, it will auto-fill in a title if there's nothing there. If there is something already in the title box, then you can hit "suggest title" to make a new title, like usual.

So now it's automatic! I'm going to try and improve the actual fetching functionality now.

1% rule (Internet culture) - "only 1% of the users of a website actively create new content, while the other 99% of the participants only lurk" by magnora7 in Internet

[–]magnora7[S] 7 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Variants include the 1–9–90 rule (sometimes 90–9–1 principle or the 89:10:1 ratio),[1] which states that in a collaborative website such as a wiki, 90% of the participants of a community only view content, 9% of the participants edit content, and 1% of the participants actively create new content.

I find this here on saidit too. 90% only lurk without logging in, maybe 10% login in with their usernames, and maybe 1% actually vote or comment or post. We get 20k unique visitors on an average day, and about 4000 comments per day, and 500 posts per day (made by about 200 users). So that's 1%, the rule holds!

Trump Exposes Pelosi And Son's Ties To Ukraine-Linked Energy Group by useless_aether in corruption

[–]magnora7 8 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I've been calling out this thing with Biden's son being put on the board of energy of the Ukraine for a while, since before it became an issue with Trump. It blows my mind that Trump calling for investigations of obvious collusion, is itself met with accusations of collusion.

What's the bigger collusion, that Trump asked for some quid-pro-quo about investigating corruption, or that Biden has literally made his son nearly the head of the energy sector for the entire country of Ukraine? It's obvious the latter is the bigger corruption.

I'm not a huge Trump fan, but the hypocrisy of these people is astounding. And now we see Pelosi may be involved too. So many palms being greased. Disgustingly corrupt.

Just for fun I found the first post:

You can see every post after it in order at links like this:

etc. This is basically the same indexing system notabug is using to record everything for the mirror. The first one starts at 26 because all the ones before that are bot-generated posts to test out the reddit system. It's a functionality that came with the reddit open source code. If you look at a post before 26 you can see it's garbage snippets of random text, so technically those are the first posts! Fun fact.

[–]magnora7 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

This is something that is frustrating about forums that have a political bias. Right-leaning forums are like "Us normal people vs those insane radical communist libtards" and then left-leaning forums are like "Us normal people vs those murderous racist fascist alt-right". And then they each cherry pick articles about the worst of the other side, to support that narrative.

And then there's all these people in the middle who are just getting completely ignored because everyone is so obsessed with hating the extremists from the other "side", while ignoring the extremists from their own side. Tribalism at its finest. I hope someday humanity as a whole can stop being so easily mentally swept away by this type of thinking. Some people are learning, and that culture is growing, but man it's like 10 steps forward 9 steps back. I guess that's the story of human history, in a lot of ways. Maybe someday we'll figure it out.

Simpsons actor says he will no longer voice Apu by Nemacolin in news

[–]magnora7 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Sad they folded to that pressure. They have many stereotypes on that show, it's kind of the point of the show in a lot of ways. They acknowledged apu was a stereotype several times in the series, same with the italian pizza guy, tony the mobster, the fat german kid that eats candy... half the characters are stereotypes. And it's not like Apu was portrayed as some kind of mean or 1-dimensional character... he was an important part of the family in a lot of ways. Now they're just erasing that, because a couple of people were upset about a voice stereotype that isn't even inaccurate!

Just another sign of the decline of the Simpsons. They're too afraid of controversy to really hit on anything meaningful anymore. Can't really blame them though, they're in Season 31 or something ridiculous. It's clearly just a cash cow at this point, and that's reflected in the humor and writing of the show.

Sweden hit by mounting welfare costs by useless_aether in Europe

[–]magnora7 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I guess this is the endgame of having too many people that they can't support in the long-term, despite best intentions. Now their gov't money is spread too thin, and it's probably eventually going to end up financially imploding like Greece did in 2009.

You can't give out more money than you have, unless you own your own central bank and money creation abilities. And sweden, much like greece, does not own that. The EU does.

They have an aging population combined with over-immigration, it seems. If they'd stem the immigration numbers a bit so they could stabilize, they might have a chance to not have a greece event.

Every year about 1.5% of the entire population of sweden's worth of immigrants arrive. Total population of sweden is 10.1 million.

Sweden is almost 20% immigrants by population now, extrapolating from this 2012 data:

When they bring in so many people who typically need a lot of support, it's no wonder that their welfare financial situation is being significantly strained. Nothing wrong with immigrants, but don't take in more than you can actually support...

But assuming the android app is mostly replacing reddit refs with saidits, would it be possible to use i.e. beam for ios?

Yes! Based on our research, Beam is our preferred iOS app to port. It's open-source. And like you say, it's basically replacing a bunch of 'reddit's with 'saidit's (not all of them though, most stayed 'reddit' in the API calls and stuff, which makes it even simpler). So beyond that it's really a matter of graphics and getting it on the app store so people can download it.

I think someone who knew exactly what they were doing could do it in a few hours. However neither d3rr nor myself have the apple dev environment required to develop it... that's one of the big hurdles too.

Anyway, I'd love to see Beam as our iOS app port. Do you have a apple computer and phone you can use to develop the iOS app?

We tried that at first, building an app using xamarin for all platforms, but fell apart. However d3rr was able to port redreader successfully to saidit, which is an open source android reddit app.

We'd love to have a multi-platform app like that, but we're also not going to give up on our android app because it has over 5000 installs.
