2015.07.08 Daily Dose: Meet and Greet! Plus, Continued Growth and Guidelines

The Daily Dose is a user-created discussion series where Snapzu members can check in with each other in a relaxed environment.
We are experimenting with different formats and ideas, so feedback is very welcome!

Continued Growth

What a difference a week has made! Before the most recent incoming class, we were a small, tight-knit community of maybe 6,000 users. Indeed, most were inactive, so those of us who frequented the site were all recognizable to each other. It was noticeable when a new snap was posted, and everyone seemed to be on the same wavelength in regard to site policy. It was truly a comfortable existence, but it was also lacking something. Apparently, that something was all of you!

Over the span of a few days, we have welcomed close to 5,000 new members. That's not even the most impressive statistic: there are perhaps 10,000 pending invites, meaning our community will have nearly quadrupled by the end of this massive wave. The site has been energized and, thanks to this growth spurt, we can look forward to great things.


There has been a lot of discussion on how to behave here at Snapzu. It's no secret that most of the new members have come from reddit, and so there is some expectation that this community will cater to the needs of redditors. What's been made clear is that Snapzu is not reddit, nor does it seek to become reddit. This is Snapzu — we have our own culture, our own rules, our own unique features and qualities. We would all do well to remember that, and adopt a new paradigm if necessary. Many of the new users have graciously pointed this out, so thank you.

While it's important to respect what was, it'd be stupid to resist good or necessary change. This site will grow and shift along with its user base. What's vital is that, through this period and beyond, we decide to embody the community we want to be. By fostering a culture of positivity, we can fight the decline into oblivion that has turned other communities into cesspits. This is an opportunity to create something new — something better!

How can you join the community effort? Here's some advice:

  • Check the FAQ, privacy policy, and terms of use if you haven't already.
  • Take part in discussions regarding site policy.
  • Ask questions! Snapzu veterans are all around, and they're glad to help. You can PM users by following them.
  • Read the rules! Whatever tribe you're posting in, remember to check the rules first. This is especially pertinent when you post to multiple tribes.
  • Don't downvote something if it's not breaking any rules. You may disagree, but someone is bound to disagree with you, and wouldn't you like your voice to be heard and respected? Spite people, if you must, by not upvoting them. Better yet, talk it out.
  • Encourage good behavior and call out or report bad behavior when you see it.
  • Leveling and reputation make Snapzu a lot more fun than reddit, but focus on making contributions to the community and you'll have an even better time. You'll find that we really appreciate the effort that goes into a quality post.

Creating Tribes

By now, many of you have experienced the excitement of starting or claiming a tribe. We know — it's loads of fun! It's also a huge responsibility, so make sure you're up for the task.

Here are a few points for your consideration:

  • Any new user can create or claim a tribe. Before you do, it's a good idea to understand how Snapzu works. Spend some time exploring, contributing, and getting used to the community. Only then can you truly know how to best run your tribe in this context.
  • Look around. Are you creating a tribe that already exists? If so, is it worth creating redundancies and splitting up users who could be hanging out in one place? As much as you want to be chief, consider that being a moderator or even just an invaluable user may be better for everyone.
  • Is your tribe a copy of a subreddit? That's not necessarily a bad thing — there are good ideas that can thrive in this community. However, if the tribe is clearly emulating reddit culture, which doesn't even exist here, then it's only a shallow attempt at turning Snapzu into reddit. So, keep your motivations in check.
  • When choosing a name for your tribe, be thoughtful. Let's leave tribe names to their best, most common uses. Wouldn't it be a little awkward if someone created /t/chocolate to discuss the 2008 film and not the delicious treat that more people are familiar with? Or /t/windows in our walls and not on our computers? /t/eagles (bird) instead of /t/theeagles (band) or /t/philadelphiaeagles (team)? Help everyone out and be specific.
  • There's a FAQ and here are some tips.

Meet and Greet

This is something we did a little while back, but it makes sense to do it again with all the new members. It was originally a way to get to know the familiar faces we were seeing, but now it's a way to connect amidst all the unfamiliar faces! Share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. You can use the following as a guideline (add or take away categories):

  • location: New York
  • interests/hobbies: philosophy, psychology, guitar, tennis
  • 5 music artists: Radiohead, Pixies, Crystal Castles, Pulp, Queen
  • 5 films: Oldboy, Gattaca, American Psycho, Fight Club, Spaghetti Westerns
  • 5 shows: Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Archer, Firefly, Twin Peaks
  • 5 games: StarCraft, Diablo, Left 4 Dead, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, The Sims 3 (I like to build houses)
  • 5 books/authors: Haruki Murakami, Kurt Vonnegut, Ernest Hemingway, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Harry Potter!
  • favorite tribes: my own, /t/lounge, /t/books, /t/newyorkcity
  • a dream/goal of mine: to go into outer space
  • two truths and a lie: (1) I can run 100 meters in 10 seconds, (2) I read a book per week, (3) I don't know how to drive

Note: At the moment, bulleted lists don't work in comments, so you're better off using a hard return to format.

Call people out on their lies :) If you like, you can wait until several people have guessed before revealing the truth.

Follow people who intrigue you or have the same interests. Maybe you can get together and create a tribe!

      Do you play the Wheel of Time mud? Those books are fantastic if anyone here is in the mood for a cool high fantasy that does things different.

      • caelreth

        I have tried it a couple of times, but not gotten very far for one reason or another. Do you play it? I might be more interested in it if I had friends in game more frequently.

    • Moderator

      Sweet, thanks for sharing. I think we met in the IRC channel the other day. What kind of books? And I had no idea about /t/42!

      P.S. You may want to use a hard return to organize your post for easier viewing.

      • CuppaMatt

        Just edited the post for easy reading, thanks!

        /t/42 is only a few days old so any new content there is VERY welcome!

        I am indeed on irc most of the time (same username) so anyone should feel free to come over to /t/irc get the details and come to say hi!

        Books wise, I'm an indie comic artist here in the UK. www.matthasawebsite.com is me. I sell a good deal of books, prints, t-shirts, etc at comic cons here in the UK (anyone going to Manchester Comic con at the end of the month should come say hi).

        • stitches

          Hello fellow UKer- I'm from o'wer t'ills (Mancland). Just had a mooch on your website and seen you're at Thought Bubble this year, I performed/modelled there a few years back at Dr Sketchy. I was Poison Ivy :)

          • CuppaMatt (edited 4 years ago)

            Awesome! I almost certainly have some sketches of you somewhere then!

            After a quick look the only pic I can find is I think of the year before that. (edit: that particular picture was drawn in the "Draw using only a pen in your mouth" round btw)

            Are you going to Manchester MCM at the end of the month?

            • stitches

              Ah the silk spectre is Daisy, she's one of my really good friends. Nope, I wont be there but I'm sure our paths will cross at some point in the future! :)

    • redalastor

      We're trying to grow /t/Quebec, would you like to join?

      • UpAndRunning

        Of course! Although.. hum.. can you explain the tribe's logo?

        • redalastor (edited 4 years ago)

          We can't. The tribe was born of a create 'n' run a year ago. The original chief is long gone.

          I asked for chiefdom and will replace the logo by a snowy owl (harfang des neiges) as soon as I get it.

    • kabamman

      Welcome! I help run /t/todayilearned welcome to our tribe don't be a stranger!

    • Moderator

      I fucking love your taste, man. Music, films, shows, books. I think we'd get along well — hope to see you around more.

      Hm... I think you probably do run five times a week (or maybe that's too much), but I'll guess number 3 is the lie.

      • UpAndRunning

        Thanks! With a community so welcoming, it'd be hard not to hang around here more.

        Heh.. to be fair I run everyday I have time. So some weeks it could be less and some weeks it could be more. Nah, the lie was the first one. Though I never sky jumped yet, I'd like to make it a hobby eventually.

      You were forced into enjoying Frozen?!

      What kind of books would you write?

      I'd say number 3 is the lie :)

      • Teska

        I have two girls ... yes I was forced. And now I sing Let It Go with the best of them sigh.

        Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Mystery - those are the one's I've dabbled in.

        Yes, it's a lie.

    two truths and a lie: 1) I'm afraid of spiders, 2) I'm gonna be a BS CS student but I'm not knowledgeable that much in programming, and 3) I exercise daily.

    • rigel

      Inside Out was so good! I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Did you see this nytimes article about it?

    • UpAndRunning

      Um.. taking in consideration your interests and studies, I'm going to go with the third is the lie.. It's just a wild guess..

    • Teska

      There's no way you won a hot dog eating contest! That is HARD. ;p

      • sushmonster

        Is it? I'd love to find out. I'd totally cheat though, and go in with munchies probably lol.

    • Moderator

      Yeah New York!

      I don't understand your music answer. It doesn't make sense.

      I love BSG — the newer one, that is. I haven't seen the original.

      Numbers 1 and 2 sound like they could be lies but they make a little sense in context. I'd have to go with number 3!

      • sushmonster

        Haha I was just trying to say I'm pretty apathetic about music. Like I don't mind what's on the radio and rarely seek out music besides when I'm running or taking a walk.

        But yes, #3 was the lie, though I'd so much like it to be true!

    • uncornrage

      Hi there, nice to meet you. :) Edinburgh, eh? It seems like a very nice place, I've always wanted to visit it! Have you made any plans concerning your dream? Or are you waiting for better time? I hope you get to go there, it would surely be pretty amazing experience!

      • NstealthL

        I've looked into plane tickets and kind of looked into itineraries but certainly waiting for a better time before I make concrete-ish plans. Flying to Japan is quite expensive and Japan is pretty pricey itself as well. The cities are especially expensive, and while I don't want to spend all my time there, I would like to still see some of them. I'd have to save a lot on my poor student budget or I could wait until I've earned some money post-degree :) I've also considered teaching english there or finding something related to my studies/work there...

    • rigel

      That book on invented languages looks really interesting, just added it to my to-read list! :)

      Linguistics is so interesting, I'd love to immerse myself in it. Are you studying it for a career or as a side interest?

      • Zorgon

        That book os phenomenal. It's what got me to spend most of my undergrad time researching constructed languages.

        Well I got my bachelors in linguistics, and I'm still working towards working in the field. I'm just going at it from a different field now due to funding. I mostly research how we learn languages and what mechanisms can be utilized to be the most effective.

        If you want any good intro reads into the subject, I'm more than happy to recommend!
