"Outstanding Content on Tildes" Competition
I want to try something new.
The post quality on Tildes is way above average. I myself only post articles/videos on Tildes if they meet my internal quality threshold, of which Tildes is the highest of any social media I post to.
I want to try to surface some of the quality. So, to that end, I'm trying a game. If it's successful, it'll happen recurringly.
Respond here with a post containing 1, 2, or 3 Tildes links. You are encouraged to give a short description of them and why you think they're of exceptional quality
- The links must ALL be Tildes links.
- The links can be of any type: Article, video, self-post, or even a truly outstanding Tildes comment. They can be very old or posted minutes ago.
- At least one of your links must originate from someone who isn't you.
How to win
Every game must have a winner. For this iteration, whichever post is top-rated by "most votes" as of 2 weeks after this submission will win (excluding myself and any meta posts). And because every game needs a prize, I'll give them a selection of my many unused steam keys.
You are yourself encouraged to vote for replies that contain submissions you especially find of the highest quality!
A submission of my own:
If you're looking for superb, utterly reasonable comments, you will find that a lot of them comes from @kfwyre. You could say I'm a fan ;)
Dear Tildes Awards Committee,
I am writing to nominate the post "Where are you from?" for consideration in the Outstanding Content category at the upcoming Tildes Awards.
This post is a shining example of the kind of thought-provoking and engaging content that makes Tildes such a vibrant and valuable community. The author's exploration of the complex and nuanced topic of identity and belonging is both deeply personal and universally relevant, making it a must-read for anyone interested in issues of culture and diversity.
The post is written with a clear and engaging style that draws the reader in and keeps them engaged throughout. The author's willingness to share their own experiences and perspectives is both brave and inspiring, and demonstrates the kind of openness and vulnerability that is essential for building understanding and empathy in our communities.
Perhaps most importantly, this post sparked a lively and respectful discussion in the comments section, with users sharing their own stories and perspectives in a way that was thoughtful, respectful, and constructive. This kind of positive and productive conversation is exactly what Tildes is all about, and is a testament to the power of this community to foster meaningful dialogue and understanding.
In short, "Where are you from?" is a truly outstanding piece of content that embodies the very best of what Tildes has to offer. It is my pleasure to nominate it for the Outstanding Content award.
Thank you for your consideration.
A Tilder user
I do find it funny seeing USA at 130ish. That puts the average at less than 3 Tilderinos per state, which is often a better method when comparing to Europe.
Our hivemind is still a problem, but such is the bubble of being English-first.
I hope that other portuguese guy who disappeared at the very beginning of the pandemic is doing OK...
