    What flavours do you like? What is your favourite?

    This is just in general. You can combine flavours if you'd like. I'm quite interesting in hearing the unique flavours that people like.

    It's a tough choice, and I almost said strawberry or strawberry-banana, but if I had to choose a favourite then it would be bubble gum flavour.

    [Promotional] Snapzu Wikipedia Article

    It would be neat to have a summary of Snapzu's history and stuff. Plus, it might help others get into Snapzu if they are looking up the place.

    [Features] Private Blog Mode/Diary

    I know that this may sound strange, but I would love to have a sort of diary on Snapzu. I have always wanted to keep an online diary of sorts but I hated the idea of using too many websites to do too many different things.

    A diary mode would perhaps only allow for invited users to read it, and perhaps there would be further restrictions on who could post. Or, alternatively, it would (more of a private blog) simply be an unlisted tribe that only those with the unlisted link could view and only those with permissions could post.

    It probably shouldn't be a priority feature to implement for Snapzu at the moment, but I would personally appreciate something like this.

    The price of powered foods

    I saw the post in /t/newtribes and I had a simple question.

    Is it more affordable than the normal price an average person spends on food? How about a thrifty person? If it isn't, then are they planning on making this sort of stuff cheaper in the future?

    /t/socialdemocracy - A tribe to discuss Social Democracy

    As the title says, /t/socialdemocracy is a place to discuss social democracy. You may ask questions, debate, and all of that.

    The primary purpose of it is to be a place for social democrats to discuss the news, policies, ideology, and whatever they have on their mind.

    Why I created this tribe

    Edit: I have renounced the tribe as my work schedule no longer allows me any time for things such as this.

    Why did I create this? Isn't Reddit's /r/socialdemocracy good enough?

    For some reason, social democracy is seen as being on the decline (not everywhere) when it should be on an upswing. You would think that with the looming threat of automation hanging as a threat to so many jobs that social democrats would be ready to adapt automation into their evolutionary goal of transforming capitalism into a pragmatic democratic socialist economy...

    Instead, as I view it, some social democrats are still caught up in a third way trend that should have ended in the early 2000s. Many social democrats don't care for evolutionary socialism and instead see that a strong welfare state is their ideology. But what is the point of social democracy once that strong welfare state is established? Do we simply pat each other on the back, tell ourselves that our mission is accomplished, and head off into the sunset? I believe (and I may be wrong) that having an ideology that is merely one that reverses/prevents other political forces from damaging the existing welfare state is not very visionary.

    I am guilty of the very thing I am critical of above. I believe that electing a social democratic government in my country (Canada) will modernize the state and its laws which was outdated by the result of other political forces.

    It is because of this that I created a tribe on Snapzu. A place where supposedly dialogue between users is not as barbed or vitriol. Although this may not be it, I envision a place where social democrats can talk with one another about policies and values. A place where social democrats from different regions such as Africa or Europe can find what they have in common and what they differ on. A place where social democratic elites can discuss things (without being attacked with vitrolic comments) with normal social democrats. An ideal example of this would be a social democratic politician who after a discussion here would be curious about some of the differing viewpoints on policy that were presented and would then decide to investigate them. I would like to see a united social democratic vision. Neoliberalism swept on a tide of globalization and I see no reason why social democracy cannot use globalization to its advantage as well.

    And we social democrats need a place to discuss these things and maybe envision a united path forward for all of us. At the very least, we should all be dismayed that when I type "social democracy forums" on google the first thing that pops up is a fascist forum...
