Text Post: [IDEA] Reddit Refugees thread posted by folkrav
  • yobabyugly

    Yep, I like that idea. This site has just enough similarities to make the switch easy, but enough differences that it can grow into something much better!

    • djsparky

      I agree, I was looking at other alternatives, and I think this one is similar and different enough to be something new and exciting.

      I came to reddit during the digg mass exodus, so now is another one.

      • TiengAnh (edited 3 years ago)

        Same here. Voat looks good too, but it just keeps going down; I understand there isn't enough money for proper servers or something.

        Reddit seems to have gone the way of Digg which went the way of Plastic.com, which later resurfaced as infinitetrees.com, in case anyone remembers that. (The latter seems all rather mysterious right now; maybe I'll sign up and see what's there; the former just doesn't do anything or go anywhere as far as I can tell.) This is from the nineties; I'm old.

        I intend to look around here and get active as time allows. Not going to be as passive as I was as on Reddit - there I was usually just hanging back and watching. I like the idea of starting "tribes".

        I do like the interface. Much more elegant and "grown up" than Reddit.

            I hope there might be plans for a "night mode" though, like in RES. Or maybe it does exist and I just haven't looked around enough yet...

            • Erik

              Amen to that, bright white interfaces hurt my eyes.

            • djsparky

              I'm still kinda confused by some things on here, actually most of them. But I'm trying to learn.

              @djsparky -

              Me too, do you know where you go to see your 3 invite codes after you've joined?? I feel so lost!

              @Ghostzebra -

              Click on your own little avatar-icon in the top bar, and in the same row as the PM's there should be an "invite codes" title! Click it :)!

      • Nerdeiro

        I saw the writing on the wall when Reddit's CEO Ellen Pao came up with all that talk about making Reddit "a safer place", but I was too lazy to look for an alternative before. Today was the proverbial straw.

        As another Digg refugee, I'm starting to understand how my Jewish ancestors felt, being forced from one place to another during the Diaspora.

      • Gish

        Only problem I have seen so far is load times. More than likely due to the recent "Reddit Refugees".

    • MePLUR

      This site has just enough similarities to make the switch easy, but enough differences that it can grow into something much better!

      You said it better than I could. There are some really good features here (eg. posting to multiple tribes), and I'm liking it so far.

      • jessdabess

        Me too. The only thing that feels off is that it feels... empty? Just a lot smaller than I'm used to, but it is to be expected I guess.

        • ObiWanShinobi

          It's true, Snapzu has smaller numbers than Reddit, probably by a lot. But I have found it to be an unfailingly polite community, and with all these new people coming in, I'm sure there will be more content.

          • jessdabess

            The only thing I miss is being able to lurk through comment threads with hundreds and hundreds of discussion.

            On the plus side, here I don't feel like my comments will be constantly buried. So there are pros.

            • ObiWanShinobi

              I definitely feel like there is more room to be heard, here. It actually makes me want to post things, because there is a bigger chance I've found new content here.

        • stabthesnitch

          Some of the tribes are small, but seem to be active.

        • DominantMan

          Let's just give this some time. I'm one of those who used reddit for purely NSFW purposes. Ran some medium sized subreddits there but today was the last drop. I've registered here already over a year ago and it used to be completely empty for that purpose back then. I'm sure snapzu will grow on that department as well now and I'm going to abandon the reddit completely. Many much more advanced options here (though they are bit difficult to investigate as site is under heavy load right now)

    • folkrav

      I like it here! Feel free to bring the content you want. That's how this site will become a real alternative. Create tribes, invite people.

      • bogdan

        Glad to see you getting so involved! Really appreciate it. Especially since, from what I see in your profile, you came here with one of my codes, so you're like a little bro to me :D

        • godzilla8nj

          I'm also here thanks to your invite codes. Are you going to keep adding them? I'd like to link to the post in some of my subreddits.

          • bogdan

            Here you go. This is a fresh batch:

        • folkrav

          I did :) Thanks to you, actually. I love this site. The community seems involved, and that new wave of people could make this place fly :)

    • the7egend

      Today was the first day hearing about it, I was transitioning over to Voat.co, but after seeing this place, I might try to make this my new home.

    • Aphrodite

      I checked out both Voat and then Snapzu. I much prefer Snapzu as, someone else pointed out, it is similar but not too similar. There is enough unique differences to keep me interested here.
