Watch people die Reddit archive backup? by yetmorenames in WPDTalk

  • It's not really feasible to add RES to this. I did start rewriting this so that it wasn't just pregenerated pages, had search functionality, etc. but I haven't finished it so far.
  • The comments and other meta do exist, yes. This page doesn't display them, but the rewrite I mentioned does, at least the comment count, not the actual comments yet. But I do have the data.
  • I pulled most of the data from pushshift.io, and some comes from my reddit bot I had running for a couple months.

Yup, that was me. If you want all the files directly, I can probably put up a torrent or something. It's ~250 GB though, that's why I haven't uploaded it anywhere yet.

I was writing a webpage for browsing the archive, with search/other features, that's not done yet though since I haven't touched it in a while. There's a static page with all the links and stuff here though: https://2x.ax/wpdarchive

Can we not use streamable to post stuff? by hemoptysis in WatchPeopleDie

[–]the_real_farfetchd 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

True, but for bitchute you can automate most of it. I use youtube-dl to download videos from sites, and ffmpeg (ffmpeg -i source-video.mp4 -vf "select=eq(n\,0)" -q:v 3 thumbnail.jpg) to get the thumbnail for the video (that command just extracts the first frame).

I could probably script that so that I can just give it an URL and it downloads the video and gives me a thumbnail with one command, but I don't upload that frequently that it's necessary

Right now, these get removed for deleting NSFL content:

catbox.moe, streamable.com

and there's another list of sites that get removed because of excessive porn ads:

theync.com, www.xrares.com, crazyshit.com, livegore.com, nowleaks.com, kaotic.com

(putting these in backticks so that it won't create links out of them)

This should probably be public so that people know which sites not to post before actually posting.. Also a post on how to pull videos from sites like these and upload somewhere else if necessary would be nice. Maybe I'll write something up about that at some point.

Yeah, but if you shrink it to 25x25 (which is I assume the resolution of the current icons) it's going to be blurry aswell. Compare them here to the text next to the icons, for example. Would be great if they could just stay in svg format.

That's too detailed/has too many colors for my taste. Actually, that got me an idea, for some reason I didn't check for emojis at all, but only svg icon sites. In that case, I'd go for this one and maybe this one. These are svg too so they'll scale nicely everywhere.

Not sure if we should actually change the icon so that it looks like it stands for something that it actually doesn't, that just feels misleading. I'd certainly not be opposed to something less "in your face," though.

I mean we could technically change the icons. I've been wanting to for a while mostly because the default icons are low res and ugly, but I also can't design icons so that hasn't gone anywhere lol (and that's also the reason why the icons in Slide are still upvote and downvote)

People who tried to create new WPD-style subs on reddit, what is their reason for banning a new sub? by pm_me_steam_keys in WPDTalk

[–]the_real_farfetchd 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Exactly this. The ban reason even says so:

This subreddit was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s content policy against creating or repurposing a sub to reconstitute or serve the same objective as a previously banned or quarantined subreddit.

[–]the_real_farfetchd 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree, people should at least take the effort to download the video from those sites and post a direct link, imo. That way there'd also be an alt link in case the video gets deleted (wouldn't be the first time on LiveLeak). Nothing wrong with posting the source in the comments because sometimes there might be an article on the source page or something.

They need to group people by sex instead of gender in sports, since obviously there's a difference in strength/whatever that's determined by people's sex, and not the gender you identify as. If you want to implement seperating sex and gender, do it properly and not only where it gives trans people a huge advantage over everyone else (well not only that, trans males will have a disadvantage in this case too, since they need to compete against "actual" males...)

I'd kind of be interested in what it would look like if you'd have a few people take a test like this every year from let's say 10 years old for 50 years and then plot the data on a graph.

I don't have the resources nor the patience to do that myself though, so I guess it'll stay in the idea stage.

A number followed by . at the start of a line is the start of an ordered list in Markdown. That's why it automatically "fixes" the numbers to start from 1. You'd have to escape it: \50. would work, I think. Or if that doesn't, 50\. should.

Harvard Study Shows YouTube Promotes Pedophilia to People Who Watch Erotic Videos by d3rr in Internet

[–]the_real_farfetchd 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Disagree, people have been complaining to YT for years about this issue. If the issue is so bad that advertisers have to proactively boycott the platform, there's something seriously wrong at YT.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying though. They can't fix it because they don't know how to. Their algorithm is essentially a black box like most machine learning systems are (that's what they're using, right?). And they're not about to ditch it because it makes them money, and the backlash isn't big enough yet. Might be soon, with all those advertisers pulling out, who knows.

Disagree, lots of these videos of kids have millions of views and I believe ads running.

They do? Alright, fair enough, didn't know that.

The most common type of evil:"extensions" by [deleted] in whatever

[–]the_real_farfetchd 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

When a nation entering the state of war, most people would view another person is the extension of themselves in the same nation, view the successful killing as the winning of themselves. If someone says: "It's all about the military industrial complex, they are the true winners!"People would just attack this person.

I think that's the same thing with people becoming super possessive and even violent over sports teams. I never understood it for the longest time - how can you become so wound up over them winning or losing if you had nothing to do with it? I would understand if you bet money on that team or something. But like this? I think it's the same thing as you said above, associating themselves with some team to be able to feel good about the achievements of others? Something like that, at least.

Is this supposed to be said evidence? I'm not buying it. This is only YouTube, not all of "the media", and even then, they don't know what the hell their algorithm is doing (this is not the first time of that being the case), or they would have already fixed it. They're not doing it on purpose. What do they have to gain from pushing pedophilia to normal people? Nothing, it will just cause backlash against them (like here!). And the people who want to watch this stuff of course won't complain, but there's so few of them that it doesn't get YT any significant ad revenue or anything. You can't turn someone into a pedophile (especially not by recommending them content on YouTube), if that's what you were going for, just like you can't cure pedophilia. You're either born with it, or not.

Yeah, you can definitely play a lot of PC games on Linux now, especially with SteamPlay/Proton (or Wine and DXVK). Even games like GTA V or Overwatch.

Of course, that doesn't mean all games run on Linux, but most of those that I want to play do. Sometimes you have to fiddle around with it to get it to work, though.

I feel so worry for playing a new PC game. by [deleted] in Games

Most old games you can definitely play in 4K (often even better than modern games since they're not as graphically intensive; for example I play Thief 2 at 4k but have to turn the settings down to like 2k, sometimes even 1080p, for for example Black Mesa). Problem is the models and textures, if that bothers you.

Searching for subs like r/nomorals, r/enoughinternet by EvilCat in WPDTalk

EnoughInternet is /s/EIFT. There's like nothing on it though, probably because of the non obvious acronym. Maybe I should make /s/EnoughInternet that just redirects there for now, idk.

WPD archive of 2000+ posts from the old sub by ElonMuskOfficial in Death

I started this (well, not the huge archive, but videoarchivebot, whose files I turned into the smaller archive after WPD got banned) right after the Morocco beheading video was deleted by the reddit admins, to make sure that stuff could still be accessed after the original links went down, or a post was removed again in the future. So in a way, I kinda was? Didn't expect WPD to get banned though.

Thanks! You can actually already use it, if you download the latest debug build from the CI server. That's actually what I'm doing to browse saidit on my phone.

Last time I've seen this it was said to be a failed shotgun suicide, iirc. Where did you get the info about this from?

Yup, that looks better. Thanks!

Does anyone use the "share" button under every link? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

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

Nope, I just copy the URL and then send it to whoever. But, I'd either remove it entirely or keep it, since it's not like the list of links under comments/posts is overflowing (even less so if you're not a moderator), and adding a "…" menu just adds to the amount of clicks that you have to do if you do want to use the option.

I'd appreciate that, yeah. Same colors is fine

Yeah, I will post a link. Haven't gotten around to it yet, though.

No subscribe / unsubscribe button on my subs page or sub sidebar by Drewski in AskSaidIt

This is something I wouldn't fix on the server side, since as you said it would potentially break other stuff way worse for everyone, for something which essentially only happens for OP (or does it?). That seems like overkill. Probably better to figure out what the problem is on his side, like starting with disabling the adblocker (although I kinda doubt that's it, since why would it be configured to block the unsub button on this site by default. Doesn't hurt to try though), or trying a different browser to make sure it's not some addon that's breaking the site
