    You know those memes about Tumblr removing NSFW content being compared to Infinity War? Well, this is the Endgame counterpart.

    Or implement tag synonyms like Stack Overflow.

    I assumed you would run a script to do this in the database, rather than doing it via the user interface.

    You could keep the main account and use Oauth or similar to connect the broken-up services to Facebook.

    How do you break up facebook while keeping its functionality?

    Hey, I really don't recommend you link that sub; link r/sequence_meta instead. Here's a few reasons why:

    Hey, I really don't recommend you link that sub; link r/sequence_meta instead. Here's a few reasons why:

    Please don't support sequencemeta, the owner is not the best of people. In case it gets removed:

    Owner's shenanigans on Snakeroom, including using a racial slur, threatening a moderator, threatening the staff team/server itself

    Further evidence:

    The staff team is comprised of hypocrites; the original post was removed for linking to an image of the owner's own words

    This is a screenshot from the owner of the sub, showing evidence of vote brigading

    Further documentation, and the initial cause of this drama

    /r/sequence_meta is the "official" sub now, backed by Snakeroom

    From /u/haykam821:

    See also removing comments about the Snakeroom and how the actual source was there and vote brigading.

    /r/sequence_meta is a better alternative, ran by the guys at Snakeroom; Snakeroom is backed by the Reddit admins, is the one that made discoveries on both Circle of Trust and Sequence, and has staff members that don't act toxic and then try to censor any mentions of them being toxic.

    I use iMessage for direct family and friends.

    For general online people I use Discord, Reddit Chat, and Telegram. This is not ranked in any particular order, but I do have the largest presence on Discord out of the 3. I'm not in many open channels on Telegram as it's my 'last resort' as it is the least censored compared to Reddit or Discord.

    I like tiers but there's not enough. 50 GB to 200 GB is a huge jump. Your sum idea might be a bit too overzealous; I'd be good with 1/8 of the storage sum.

    It's a bit annoying to have to pay 5 times the price of what you actually need. It's also annoying the pay the price of a premium phone and not get any storage for it.

    @frickindeal said: This means they pay $12 a year for 50 GB. Since they only use 1/5 of that (10 GB), they should be paying 1/5 of the cost: $2.40 per year.

    Definitely.

    I'm created for a future where we are no longer defined by gender, but rather how we define ourselves.

    You're paying for $12/yr when you should be paying $2.4/yr at most.

    I think it is interesting that they pondered about their streaming service rather than any of their other services. I would happily take free Apple Music for buying AppleCare, even if it expires at the end of warranty. However, I think that all AppleCare purchases (even better, device purchases) should come with a permanent amount of iCloud storage. The default 5 GB is way too little.

    If I have an iPhone, an iPad, a MacBook, and an Apple Watch, I'm invested in the Apple ecosystem enough. I should be able to have at least 20 GB with all these devices' bonuses combined. However, I still have to pay for 200 GB of storage. Even then, I only use half of it because Apple does not offer a middle tier.
