    To the contrary, popular networks like reddit feel a bit daunting. You are locked inside browsing same memes and low effort content every day. I checked Tildes to see if I can find some serious discussion, and while it is here, I expected more variety in topics.

    At the very least it seems like user engagement is very high on the front page

    We can have every company in the world screaming same all the time but that would not change the inevitable, any sophisticated government already working or has this system in place so it is a matter of time until the technology is perfected and our movement is tracked 100% of the time with the highest accuracy

    At the very least those statements are good to bring discussion to general public

    Yeah, I remember good old days of Dota 2 in like 2012 where you would get a drop or a set after each level

    I think their planned leveling system rework involves more consistent and clear drops? Either way I was never really interested in those, since I just trade what I want for keys

    Yes, Switch is more casual than any other alternative. I would also argue that Nintendo 3DS or even PSP are more casual since those are very portable and generally don't offer AAA games

    Why Switch would be the best casual is because of its portability and a great number of ways you play games. Using Joy Cons as motion controllers is a very fun way to play practically any Switch game. Games for switch in general are "fun driven", as I think Nintendo is one of the remaining game devs that actually focus on "fun" in games, instead of monetisation and attention maximisation.

    PS4 and XBOX1 are great for those who are more competitive and tryhard more. I am not saying you can't have fun on those consoles but it is just there are either not that many fun games or the playerbase (if you play online) will call your mom names, which is not fun for some

    I am waiting for the next gen pokemon RPG to get switch. Mainline Pokemon games are the perfect blend of fun and competitive for me

    just give an option to not display OP's name in the post body. Don't differentiate their comments in the post with (OP) tag too

    Anonymous posting should be enabled by mods in a specific ~ and set a quota on how many anonymous posts could be made per user per month, for example. I don't think there are cases where you would want to use this function very frequently

    Oh man, I am in similar situation, I am finishing my very generic business management education but want to get into programming. I don't know if that relates to your specialization at all, but it would be interesting to hear from you how would one get into CS or maybe what language to learn first

    From my limited knowledge, AI sounds like the most demanded career path at the moment

    Since ads is a slippery slope, there should be a great subscription system, I think. Something like reddit gold that can be gilded to others but with more pronounced and better benefits. I honestly don't have any obvious cool benefits that could be added but subscription is probably one of the best option for monitisation.
