I've been learning server stuff at work and now I've got a decent handle on it. I'm also tired of the site being slow all the time. It'll probably take me a while to get to it but It's something I'd really like to do.
Basically my plan is to fire up a new instance of reddit on my own hosting (or maybe raddit since it's more lightweight). There are a couple of pieces of input I would like, and some general notes for this project though:
Fast fempire will return.
Importing the old posts + comments won't be the easiest thing to do. I might have to make a /r/archive or something that just has all the old posts in there done by an "archive" user, with some sort of note in the title denoting who the actual author and forum for the post were. This will be almost totally likely if I choose to use raddit.
I'm gonna see if I can figure out how to get SSL (https) working.
I feel like Brd is kind of a weird mascot for us since even if we kind of started as a splinter from SRS we're not really SRS anymore? Anyone have any thoughts on this? A new site would be a good opportunity for a mascot change imo if it feels warranted.
UPDATE: Looks like raddit has been renamed to postmill... guess reddit sent a c&d to them or something.
