      Is there a way we can keep the negative aspects of Reddit culture from leaking in? I'm new, and if there's anything I can do, then I'd love to do that.

      I guess worrying about it is probably something that I picked up from Reddit, now that I think about it. It might be best to just watch ourselves and not bring it in.

        Not allowing people in without an invite is already a way to keep the negative aspects of Reddit culture out.

        For instance, the reason Reddit got so racist over time is because it was continuously brigaded by Stormfront, and then over time the Stormfronters decided to stay. Snapzu cannot get brigaded in the same way by people from the rest of the internet because the barrier to entry is so high. We just have to make sure to only invite people in who are nice and interesting!

          You're definitely right, I hadn't thought about that. I think that could be an effective way to keep users like that out, but I'm not sure it is right now. There's a lot of codes that are being released publicly on /r/redditalternatives. While it helps get some good users in, It's also a dangerous thing to do, since the people giving out codes don't necessarily know the users they are inviting.

          I'm just going to be careful with who I invite, and hopefully others will do the same. If I remember, I'll post a discussion here on /t/lounge about it, and hopefully that will help remind others to be careful of who they invite.

          What if shitty people are invited?

          You can't do anything about that. Those same people could just request an invite anyways. Shitty people will get through, just many shitty people will be filtered out. After that, its a matter of dealing with things as users and moderators of this site.

          I feel like Snapzu's invite system isn't supposed to keep all shitty people out, but it would do wonders against bridgading. It would be quite easy for one person to get invited to Snapzu, (heck, there's even a thread over on Reddit of invites) but it would be much harder for a whole community to hop over here.

        Well, that post I just linked was downvoted to the point it got hidden. Downvotes allow the users here to moderate on their own, in a way.
