if you people hate reddit so much, why use their code and site layout? (self.ask)

because reddit is famous enough that one direction probably knows about it so maybe they might stumble across this site and think "oh is this that one rly popular site???" and join us and become passionate feminists and also fall in love with me it's a foolproof plan, you see.

it all suddenly makes sense
[–]trimalchio 12 points13 points14 points 2 years ago
yep, can confirm that's the entire reason this site was started.
[–]nat 10 points11 points12 points 2 years ago
In fact I've secretly been niall this whole time
[–]FWM 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago
not surprised tbh. niall is awesome. you're awesome. really the similarities are too clear.

Because it's the user base and admins which make it shitty, not the cute cat picture delivery system.

Okay, I see, thanks.

why do you say it's bad for an actual discussion? I think it's actually pretty good at that as long as the people voting on stuff aren't total shitbags like on that othersite.

The only issue with reddit is that comments don't bump a thread up - like, if something's still getting comments 24 hours later I still want it on the front page.
Bu' tha's all my beef and this is a gentle, slow place.
[–]trimalchio 7 points8 points9 points 2 years ago
yeah; having the fempire enhancement suite definitely helped with overcoming that sort of problem with the small community aspect of the reddit code.
we could probably do something like that though; and stickying threads allows mods to put one thing at the top... idk all i know is that this is better than vbulliten by miles.

I think the only reason it works here is the same reason it works on small subreddits: low volume
[–]trimalchio 3 points4 points5 points 2 years ago
i mean, the idea that we can recognize well thought out content vs shitty opinion statements is not that hard to believe, i guess the problem is that people don't translate well thought out but challenging content into upvotes... idk, like i feel like i would do that but its hard to tell around here. but i do think that silencing an opinion without constructive criticism is really kinda a slippery slope to combativeness. so idk, i mean i think it has merits definitely but you're right that it doesn't do anything groundbreaking to disturb our biases.

The format of the site is fine and appealed to us enough to form a community there, but we had enough of putting up with reddit's particular brand of Fucker.
[–]madbro_mcstarcraft 11 points12 points13 points 2 years ago
what is 'reddit'? just wondering
[–]trimalchio 8 points9 points10 points 2 years ago

Tjk (now lvs) was like, hey, why don't we make pur own? So I launched brdsrv. Then we make TF. Simple as that.
FYI I still think the name brdsrv was better

We were on reddit because we enjoyed the format layout, just not the people or some of the policies.

Idk. If you people tell us to go away, and then we go away, why bother us here?
