    I guess the only problem I have with this article is the use of BMI as a healthy weight.

    Honestly, the "BMI isn't a good metric" crowd seems to be used mostly by people who are unhealthy but want to justify being overweight, not people who actually fall into the rare exceptions.

    I don't think it's really that MMOs are becoming less popular, but I do think their growth has slowed significantly. The genre is growing stagnant. We are lucky if brand new MMOs today are as good as WoW when it was released a decade ago, and almost no one is trying to things in the genre.

    Playing The Flock Will Help Make The Flock Unplayable

    The version I played back in 2013 was fun, but I wondered how much longevity it’d have. Turns out, a limited amount – by design. As people play the game, they will contribute to it being taken permanently offline.

    The key takeaway from this is that Derek Smart is a moron and you should never, ever listen to a word he says. He's been trolling game development discussions for years upon years, while occasionally releasing some miserable excuse of a game so that he gets to pretend to be an "expert" on the subject.

    They see us discussing things that are a little more dare I say higher class..

    People on Reddit used to say the same thing about Digg...

    Honestly, this whole thread has left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Same here. It's a little distressing.

    So, Snapzu needs to grow, and we need to have faith in that the system keeps self-regulating to keep the unavoidable asshat population in check.

    Judging by this entire thread, it doesn't sound like a lot of community agrees that Snapzu needs to grow and that they want it to stay small and insular.

    Trash-talking just provokes more trash talk.

    Pointing out potential flaws in a community isn't "trash talk". Nor is it "mid slinging".

  • 3 years ago
    Comment Goronmon

    But to go and sling mud at them because they don't appeal to your preferences?

    People are allowed to have personal opinions that differ from your own. Outside opinions can reflect on issues that insular groups habitually ignore.

    I'm thinking he means that users tend to have ideas/opinions that don't waver to extremes, in contrast to Reddit.

    Outside of /t/lounge, /t/asksnapzu, and /t/ideasforsnapzu it feels more like people don't bother expressing their ideas/opinions.

  • 3 years ago
    Comment Goronmon

    I actually agree with that assessment.

    The problem I see right now is that the community on Snapzu is based around the site as whole, rather than around the topics being discussed or the tribes themselves. I'm starting to feel like the site is more like a general chatroom than a place to discuss and learn about specific topics.

    I'm mainly interested in gaming/programming/etc, but snaps and tribes on those topics generally get few (or more likely no) comments. The snaps that get the most comments are those about Snapzu (or indirectly about Snapzu, such as Reddit discussions) itself.

    So, effectively, right now Snapzu is a better version of Reddit's /r/all but a poor replacement for anyone looking to replace the separate subcommunities you get on Reddit.

    Edit:

    You people really need to learn what the downvote button is for. So disappointing.

    Hating on someone for not thinking something you like is perfect isn't exactly a great way to start a reasonable discussion. There were plenty of ways to bring up this topic without being antogonistic.

    The Cutting Room Floor - Site dedicated to unearthing and researching unused and cut content from video games

    From debug menus, to unused music, graphics, enemies, or levels, many games have content never meant to be seen by anybody but the developers — or even meant for everybody, but cut due to time/budget constraints.

    You can be banned from one sub for just subscribing to another...

    Honestly, I don't really have a problem with this. Individual subreddits should be able to create pretty much whatever rules they want. Its the site-wide bans on people and content that becomes a problem.

    Comment Goronmon

    Yeah...that was a dumb thing to say and pretty much outlines why so many people are getting frustrated with the company/admins as a whole.

    Personally, I feel like it's become pretty clear that Reddit as a company is pushing to make the site more palatable for advertising so that can drive more revenue on that front. The problem is, they know they can't just tell users that they they are changing their core values to support more advertising, so they have to constantly lie.
