    I totally agree. I sent you my concept for something more twitter like and in there I basically said the same. My only fear would be false security if it's possible to deanonymize someone. I wrote:

    I wrote:

    A small thing that can be offered is partial anonymity towards each other: An option to publish a post to all ones subscribers, but anonymously. Subscribers would see an anonymous post from a curator they subscribed to like any other, but without a name or a picture to identify who posted it. Subscribers could still nudge the curator up or down for a post, but without knowing who posted it. This way the context of the curator is stripped, without scarifying trust or accountability. The curator is not immediately stigmatized by potentially controversial content they posts and the subscriber is free from the biasing context of the curator. As this context is valuable to the subscriber (for quick parsing of posts) posting anonymously should not be the default.

    Good to hear. And knowing no other aggregator doing this natively I think this is more than a "basic" and a great feature :)

    I just can't bear aggregators without it any more. (for reddit you can do it with RES, for HN there is also a browser extension ("Hacker News: Mark All Read") )

    The only problem: you miss out on some later discussions. For this the HN extension I use has a "follow comments" toggle inside the posts, which excludes those posts from being hidden.

    It also totally fixes the problematic of balancing the "freshness" on the frontpage.

    There should be ~fluff or at least ~entertainment.fluff.

    I feel like tildes should be a universal tool. Opinionated in its design, but open in its use. I would not make ~fluff part of default subscriptions, but any content that's not against the "don't be an asshole"-rule should find its place. With ~entertainment.fluff this place might be in the long-tail.

    Also: Youtube: Ethan Zuckerman: "Internet Censorship: How Cute Cats Can Help" (2008)

    But in general I didn't quite get the policy on "top level" tildes on this site yet. Why is not any tilde allowed and what sticks stays? One could still refactor with redirects to e.g. move ~lit to ~literature.

    You want tildes to work, not to find work where you do predictive analytics and behavioral science.

    ┬╣ e.g. this one. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/magazine/how-one-stupid-tweet-ruined-justine-saccos-life.html (I think it's even ironic and therefore against racism)

    Tags

    I can totally see nsfw.nude work, but do you think tagging will be done much further? It's relatively much work to tag a thing well, maybe some sort of cross-posting is more rewarding to the user. Essentially it might be the same thing, but the act of sharing to another tilde feels more rewarding than adding yet another tag.

    Hierarchies in Tags and Tildes

    Yes! I love hierarchies for how they scale.
    Do you think the one-dimensional nature of such a "taxonomy" will get problematic, or is it merely a corner case? I might have "food > recipes" and "food > restaurants" or I might have "recipes > food" and "recipes > chemistry". Again I feel like cross-posting is essential to solve this duplication issue. Maybe this as another chance to improve on reddit: if cross-posts just reference a single post there would be just one big discussion.
    Cfabbro is part of the team? "We were actually considering allowing multiple ways to access the same groups. E.g. ~literature and ~lit going to the same top level group" sounds good.

    Comments

    I think "most votes" has a strong bias towards early comments. Ideally you'd give a new comment the reason of doubt, and make it more visible until a good rating about is has been established. For this you'd have to track up-votes per "seen".
    Sadly it's really hard to track these implicit down-votes ("read but not up-voted") and generally it obfuscates how the site works. I still think it's worth thinking about, especially if you might derive trust/reputation from the up-votes at some point.
    Otherwise commenting on rising stories is the an easy way to farm karma (I tried it on HN to see how the down-vote mechanism works, which is unlocked at 200 karma). Here I also agree with you, that this process should not be 100% automatic.

    Group-specific trust

    If tildes are nested, will reputation (eventually) be inherited up the hierarchy?

    Filter-Bubble (found your opinion in some discussion about it):
    I agree again, good communities are bubbles. I think the "no-downvotes" will help a bit so controversial stuff can rise.

    Links

    I also like your decision to not allow text on links. I really like how HN moderators improve link-titles sometimes to get rid of clickbait or inaccuracies.

    I will give some UX feedback later, when I got used to tildes a bit.
