    Following Gamescom 2018 my attention was caught by the new Anno game coming out in February. Set in the industrial revolution it promises to be very exiting, I wasn't a very big fan of the futuristic Anno parts (played 2070 a good bit but skipped 2205 completely) and recently diving into Anno 1404 again my excitement is high. It was damped a bit by the news that the new part would include optical microtransactions (German source). What are your thoughts? Are you excited for Anno 1800?

    I would argue that a vanilla server makes the barrier of entry lower.

    Tildes will definitely face issues scaling up, I'm curious how it will be tackled and how much room moderators of "autonomous" Tildes will have for "developing" their communites. If the reddit side-wide rules were enforced by the admins it would be a great model, if the theory could be carried over into practice on Tildes it would be the best way to go imo.

    The core two things I moderate against is off-topic discussion and insults. I don't remove comments as long as they're voiced in a civil way. Since people from both sides of the isle sometimes go beyond the line I frequently get called Nazi and Commie on the same day. As for specific types of content or narrow content definitions I usually let the community decide (either via up- and downvotes or if that doesn't work via polls).

    Being that I moderate a political subreddit the hate I see is quite more extreme there than in other places but I feel like our strict rules against this at least help to tackle the issue a little bit.

    About time! So much energy to be gained from that, glad to see it gaining traction. We were travelling through texas a while back and were surprised by the lack of solar in total wastelands / deserts

    Not surprising. Young people are fleeing that platform at an alarming rate. Same thing will happen to Twitter and eventually Reddit. Only a matter of time with these platforms.

    An r/all equivalent will surely come when the option to create own groups is added or when more default ones are added.
