I'm a little frustrated here at the moment as there seem to be some glaring design errors regarding searching, reposting, managing your feed, algorithms of what you get shown yadda yadda, I don't think the place needs more activity as much as it needs a better way of digesting the existing content, so that those who want to participate can always be alerted to stuff they're interested in and tribes that want to specialise in something aren't crippled by the bizarrely harsh attitude to reposting.
Snapzu has a lot of potential, but finding these flaws over my couple of weeks here, plus what looks like a positive direction for reddit, has me at least back to a 33% reddit 66% here split.
Edit: and the most frustrating this is that /t/ideasforsnapzu exists, but is crippled by the very issues that are brought up there. "I can't search for posts by tribe" gets posted frequently, instead of one post getting lots of votes BECAUSE the feature doesn't exist. It drives me mad!
I agree that the design of the site definitely has it's flaws. Hopefully they will be able to change it up soon.
Yea,, I hope so too.. The only reason I care is because so much is right. It just kind of feels like fundementals have been missed.. I wish I could do more about it than just dump my thoughts and ideas in to the ideasforsnapzu.. Anyway -- admins, please don't take this as me being arsey! I love you all and I love your site :)
