  • Artist banned, told to “find a different style”- AI-made art
    The weirder thing is that redditors make it possible to own categories. The name of the subreddit shouldn't matter much at all. For each category there are several subreddits but people don't actively move to the subreddits with the best moderators. For aggregators as a whole, it's the same. Places like don't have many visitors even though Reddit's flaws should incentivize significant amounts... - Source: Hacker News / 2 months ago
  • The first release candidate of Mastodon 4.0 is now officially available
    There's the reddit-inspired tildes from the ex-admin who created automod. It's exclusive (invite-only still I believe) in the hopes of increasing the signal-to-noise ratio. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Usborne computer and coding books from the 1980s
    As a kid in 1999ish in the US, my elementary school library had a book on computers that got me into programming, and I've been trying to find the book again since then. I think the book was titled Computers. The book had many pictures and diagrams about lots of computer-related things. It talked about computers being used by NASA, and it had classic CPU diagrams and logic gate diagrams that I'd trace out copies... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Amazing depiction of a whale's eye and water crashing over it.
    For a while I thought tildes would fulfill that role as it was created by a webdev who was a vetern of older reddit and even was the founder of /r/Games. This is the guy who saw /r/gaming full of memes and trash talk, so he made a better place for curated discussion. Sadly I don't think it ever got the member count it needed to become huge, so it's a pretty small community last I checked. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • Books to read to understand financial crime

  • Ask HN: Why Facebook desktop website so bad?
    I don't think you were unclear, I guess you just don't feel what I feel. It doesn't matter if I'm using old.reddit or the new UI, Reddit doesn't want me there. The new UI is basically a giant fuck you to anyone not using the phone app, the phone app is a fuck you to anyone who wants some amount of privacy or agency over their free time, the old UI is unmaintained and going the way of the dodo, and third party apps... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • The CCP is always watching
    Is it the same with ? With the pure alt-right circlejerk I mean. When I was there it seemed that one guy was in charge, deimos, the founder. But at least he used his power for good and only for the things that were noted somewhere. Curious about your take here :) because you're right with your comment thread. there's bad everywhere, though. So I don't have ideas for the last part... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • What do you guys think is the most politically neutral reddit alternative? (I prefer answers from people who would consider themselves independent/centrist/neutral/non-partisan/moderate/libertarian/apolitical/etc)
    Tildes is like that. I actually think Tildes is doing the reddit alternative thing in a really good way. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • End of Life Dates
    Everything has a lifetime. Individual bricks just have a pretty long one. Your building overall probably has a much, much shorter lifetime than you think, and likely has received updates and substantial maintenance over the decades, if anything at least to keep it up to code. Maintenance is one way of extending the lifetime of things. Otherwise, your building would regularly be torn down and rebuilt. This is often... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Woob: interact with the web outside of browsers
    Oops, sorry about that. I never had an issue before...but funny after visiting HN, see exactly what you mean. (Clearing the cookies avoids the classic rick roll video). Anyway, yeah I guess the tilde folks are "characters". But, separate of that, the community I've interacted with is quite fun, respectful, and good-natured. I also failed to mention a sort of equivalent to HN, which I frequent (with similar... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • HN: == Happy New Year HN == (What is your “plans” for the new year?)
    Happy new year, HN. I'm a huge believer in CGP Grey's thematic year system ( in place of resolutions. After outstanding successes two years in a row with the system (first year with my physical health, second year with my work and finances), I'm doing a "year of relationships" where my focus will be general social and romantic recoveries. Especially since, in the last... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Open source ideation
    There is lemmy, tildes, and the various fediverse platforms (some more popular then other) I kinda like friendica. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Tildes may be a place for people to minimize their digital interactions
    Tildes is designed and promoted to be an efficient and thoughtful space. I have been a member since March 5, 2019. I have, over time, experienced a natural decline in my feeling/impulse to interact with the site. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Reddit To Go Public: Valuation of $10b in August
    Tildes looks to be a young site, but promising. Reminds me of very early days of Reddit, with a bit of a Hacker News feel. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Reddit files to take the company public
    Your best bet would be It's created by an ex-Reddit admin and creator of AutoModerator and the site is fully open source. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

    Similarly used by (invites available if you email me). - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Watch Reddit Die is moving to BBS! Fuck Reddit!
    In my opinion the most appealing reddit alternatives have been and But both have significant issues/deficits to where I very rarely ever visit them. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
