    Too little too late.

      Considering we're on Snapzu discussing it, I think you may be right. :)

        I just got an Invite yesterday, it seems nice in here. I dont like the condesending tone of snapzu old users. Like everything we ex-redditors do is wrong. There was a thread about not putting comments with less than 5 words. Do you think my top comment needed more words to say our discomfort? I dont.

          You find the old Snapzu users condescending? I find they've been nothing if not welcoming and gentle. Not pushy at all about enforcing the site's values, yet clear in what they like about their own community.

          The great circle continues. Redditors also looked unfavorably upon Diggers during the Digg Exodus. When that long September arrives in a small, tight-knit site, the original community will fight to preserve their ways, but invariably, the old ways will become a part of the larger "modern" era. The meshing of old and new will undoubtedly work to the site's advantage, going forward.

          As more users integrate with Snapzu, the community will balance itself out, and will become a bit more relaxed. Snapzu is a great site, but as you could imagine, a few Snapzites are annoyed that the site is pretty chaotic right now, and are voicing their concerns to try and maintain the old peace. The beautiful thing about this, to me, is that the old peace might not return for some time, and that's wonderful! Snapzu is growing exponentially, and alongside Voat, is poised to become a fantastic community all its own. As history has shown, the Roman Empire didn't fall in a day, and in its throes into irrelevancy, the skies opened up and showed to the world that there is more than enough room for multiple smaller communities.

          The older users are simply adjusting best they can. They do mean well. I personally don't have a problem with brevity (it is the soul of wit, after all), and I'm sure others don't as well, but the line between intelligent brevity and low-effort posting is very fine. It is my hope that the community can tell the difference, and indeed, in this case they are correct!

          In closing, it's pretty crazy right now, but believe me, it's a wonderful place to be. Thank you for being here!

          I dont like the condesending tone of snapzu old users.

          That's because you young whippersnappers have no respect for your elders! In my day we didn't hold with one hundred and forty character limits, we wrote expansive essays on BBS through 300 baud dialup connections that would crash half-way through your post! And we liked it that way, we loved it!

          Maybe when you've been around as long as I have you'll have more appreciation for the attention to detail that goes into this community by its members!

          (do I need a /s here?)
