    Yeah, I don't think that chat is inherently bad, I've met a lot of great people over Discord. Discord is simply a lot better than Reddit, with a lot more features than the current chat. The huge amount of bots also help in moderating chat. If you ban a guy, all his messages in the server are gone. You can "prune" messages (so you can easily delete ~50 spam messages, for example). And some people just love their fishing games on chat lol

    I'm talking just about myself. As you know, a few of us are moderators on Reddit too, and moderating communities takes a lot of time (and energy). I still love r/brasil and the small community we built there. The World Cup increased traffic there and it has been a lot of fun, but also a lot of time.

    I feel like there isn't a real ~ for articles that are good for discussion. I don't feel like posting the links that I'm going to post below in ~misc to be honest. I'm not sure about the name, but here it goes:

    1. ~longreads or ~articles. Purpose: to share, read and comment about insightful articles, investigative journalism, etc. Note: I would like to have something here that says that we shouldn't accept everything related to US politics, but I'm not sure how to write it, since it's not a black and white thing. The idea is that it shouldn't be flooded by opinion pieces about current US politics, since this one could go to ~news or a possible ~politics in the future.

    I posted two of these links on Reddit, second link and third link, both of them on r/TrueReddit.

    1. Go back to ~misc and, when appropriate, post on ~news.

    Because of my background, I decided, even if begrudgingly, to pursue a degre in System Analysis (it's like Comp Sci-lite in Brazil). A degree in History just wouldn't help me to get a stable job. I'm not even saying it's easier, just saying there is a bigger market.

    Anyway, I always loved History classes during school. One topic that I always like to read is about immigration of Europe and Asian countries to Brazil. It's quite fascinating. For instance, we have more people of Lebanese descent than Lebanon itself! I also recently learned that we have a huge population of Roma people too, much I can't find lot of information about them.

    I mean, there is the argument that a lot of people still voted for Trump. But yeah, it's terrible that US relations with other countries have deteriorated so fast in just 2 years of Trump's presidency. I imagine we still don't know the full impact of these measures (feel free to correct me, I haven't been checking indexes and stuff). There's also the incoming tariffs on China 6 of July, which will impact China's economy.

    I'm from Brazil, so I don't really understand taxes from the US. I'm also young, so I don't understand taxes from my own country, heh. That said, do you take a lot of time in your job to take care of one single business? Accounting in Brazil is very bureaucratic, and it can often take hundreds of hours just to keep up with the taxes. From what I know, hiring someone to provide accounting is also mandatory. Is this the same in the US?

    We can only agree to disagree then; I thought it was pretty funny, and I don't like the /r/iamverysmart attitude in here. You can see in some other comments I made here. This is something that I feel pretty strongly about.

    So a serious answer to you can't be in a "bullet point" way? I can quote anything from your comments. Markdown is here for that. It's the way I discuss things here. What's wrong with that? Is there a unwritten way to comment in here too?

    didn't take some time to read and learn how the community have some unwritten rules

    We do have some unwritten rules, but they change. One thing that our community definitely wants is a different community, right? A community that accepts different views and opinions, while not being a jerk/using slurs?

    check my content you (sic) history to get as much info you can about me

    I quoted you again, and here's why: I can check your comment history. It's completely fine. It's not rude, and I did so to pinpoint what I believe is your hypocrisy on Tildes.

    Yes, I did attack our bias, because you attacked our new user on Tildes. It is not on your hands to tell what Tildes is, and what Tildes is not.

    I added the users labels on the extension

    This is starting to get funny. Since you gave up on any sincere discussion here, do you see what you just did? I don't know what extension you're talking about, but if it is anything like Reddit Enhancement Suite ability to tag users, what makes you different from your average redditor, who keeps fighting in r/politics, mess in r/AgainstHateSubreddits, etc?

    You try to keep a serious face, gate-keep new users from our community, but when someone confront you, you shut them down. You don't try to argue, to discuss, the very things you, me, the community, wants.

    Would you shut down someone if they answered you in the comments just like I did? I definitely wasn't the most polite in my comment, but I didn't attack you with slurs of something like that. I'm not trolling. I just got a very strong opinion here. But here we are, you shut me down! How can Tildes deal with something "more serious" outside of technology, like news, opinion articles or politics, if we are going to start using extensions to check if someone's worthy or unworthy of a opinion? But sure, avoid answering to me in the future because you "tagged" someone!

    I repeat myself in this thread, but I can't help it. But I'll have a deep, high-level discussion with you, since this is the kind of content you really wish in this community.

    It's not the purpose of the topic you created but the way you presented it. Part of what made reddit insufferably shallow for me and lots of other users are the meme, inside-jokes and whatnot.

    Unsubscribe from ~talk if you want. It's that easy. You know how to program, you surely know how to navigate tildes. The same can be said about Reddit actually - just subscribe to the subreddits that you enjoy and have good discussions. r/TrueReddit, r/longreads, r/games, etc. Are all communities with a good level of discussion. I'm even going to mention r/polandball, since comments there can get very interesting. I definitely learned a lot in my years following that subreddit. There's some light shitposting, but there's also some very in-depth information about the history of the countries portrayed in the comics.

    Also, your post and this one post as well, denote only that you came here not to partecipate but to please your ego in a "fresh" community because post like yours, in which people ask others how their day/week was, has already been done and appreciated.

    Your ego is even bigger. You want to please yourself with high-level discussions on Tildes, but where is your contributions to Tildes? Are you dedicated to invite users that aren't as butthurt as you, surely? Users that contribute, vote, and comment here? I'm trying my best here too, because I believe Tildes has potential to be a good place for discussions. I was even going to submit some interesting articles today, but sent a PM to Deimos just to be sure where I should post them.

    You joined, created a topic the day after, without even taking some time to first get to know the community first

    Why are you attacking this user? What's wrong with users making a light-hearted post on ~talk? You keep saying, "read the docs", let me ask you, do you read the sidebar? I'm sure he did, he posted on ~talk. Let me share you the description of ~talk on the sidebar:

    Open-ended discussions with fellow Tildes users, casual or serious

    So here, we have this very simple and blunt description of what ~talk is, a board for serious discussions, but also casual if people wish to do so. It's fine to tell a user, if not in ~talk or ~misc, to explain what we wish for Tildes. But understand that you're not a moderator or community manager here, you're just another member of this forum. So you're expected to behave and respect other users above all else. If things are truly bad, Deimos or that other guy would have done something about it.

    I hope you understand my message. I really blasted on you just like you blasted on this new user because people here need to be reminded that there's more to it that seriousness. Seriously.

    A small editorialization here ("Draghi Warns Risks From Trade War May Be Understated"). I'm still catching up from all the news about Trump tariffs. Today's the 1st of July. The EU is already affected by the tariffs, Canada retaliated with news tariffs, and China will do the same with the US really go through the tariffs on them.

    I believe this is much different from the time George Bush tried to increase the tariffs on the EU, where he gave up after the EU threatened to increase tariffs from products from key Republican states. This time, with Trump, it seems the US will go through. And it's quite scary.

    As someone who's first language is not English, I would highly appreciate it! Most of my vocabulary is picked up from the Internet, I barely spoke English in the last couple of years. My last "serious" attempt to talk in English was on a voice chat. We read the entirety of Denko's creepypasta that night.

    It's ~talk . If people want serious discussions, they should:

    1. Post and submit more serious stuff;

    2. Don't be boring.

    Seriously, I probably do more than the people whining about this, and I don't even post that much around here.

    I'm not standing for this stupid gate-keeping. I'm just going to keep inviting people that I know enjoy longreads/truereddit/are serious on Reddit. But if those same people decide to have some fun talk, let them. This site allows this, and if any of you feel very entitled to serious discussions, you can simply unsubscribe from ~talk. It's meant for more casual conversation anyway.

    People already describe Tildes as a sort of r/IAmVerySmart-ish place, and that's not a good thing. You need a balance of seriousness and fluffy. Let's not be r/IAmVerySmart, let's be just a good place for discussions.
