    Good idea. And board games doesn’t really include card games so they can be ~games.physical as well. Maybe even a third category for role-playing?

    Well, I'm sure that doesn't help with anything.

    One of those incidents is how the "fuck spez" thing happened, where he edited a bunch of users' posts directly in the database. The thread he did it in was T_D being mad that spez was singling the subreddit out for unfair treatment in some way.

    Well, I'm sure that doesn't help with anything.

    Not really. However, it will be hard due to smaller dev teams and undocumented APIs. :(

    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.
