I think it's time for Introductions: Episode 3

I saw that the 2nd thread by @vibe was dying so I decided to post a new one.

Howdy, my name is Odin, or /u/alibyte. I go by alibyte on absolutely everything (except here). I moved here because I was sick of the blatant political bias on Reddit and the massive echo chamber it became. I'm looking forward to the future of this place :)

    Howdy! I am /u/scituselectrum. I found out about Tildes through Reddit. I love STEM and philosophy. I liked the idea of Tildes as it encourages healthy dialogue (or at least that's how I see it). I avoided any kind of participation in Reddit mainly because it tends to end up in some sort of conflict (this obviously depends on the subreddit). In any case, I will do my best to be as active as possible over here!

    Hi there, I'm Reppamon! I'm yet another user here from reddit where I'm for the most part a lurker, aside from some small participation in niche Pokémon related subreddits. I'm not best at introductions or talking about myself/easily carrying conversations, but I felt that I should try to participate in this community since it's just beginning to sprout!

    I felt drawn to Tildes after reading about its aims and the type of environment that will be cultivated here, especially the goal of keeping things civil and polite! I'm all for a friendly feeling to a site like this!

    I hope to enjoy my time here and maybe actually become an active member in spite of my social anxiousness and tendency to lurk. If anyone would for some reason like to talk to me, please feel free, though I don't believe I'm the most interesting person to talk to (but hey, I do at least have some people in my life who would disagree with that statement!)

    Apologies for my rambling on, and thanks to anyone who read this long intro!

    Hey, I'm Andrewski. I'm passionate about liberty (personal freedoms, free markets, small govt) and traveling.

    My interests include FOSS software, linux, gardening, sustainability, board games, pc games, cryptocurrency, camping, sci-fi and fantasy, hiking, guns, and ultimate frisbee.

    I've gotten tired of reddit's dumbing down the interface and content, lack of privacy, manipulation, shadowbans, etc. I thought voat might be a viable alternative, but it's zero moderation principles have lead to a racist takeover so that's clearly not the solution.

    I hope I can help this community in fostering interesting dialogue and respect for all various opinions.

    Hi I'm @crates, pretty interested in the sort of community that tildes will develop around ~comp and hopefully a future gamedev. I'm really keen on software development right now and hoping to find a good place to chat about it. I'm dissatisfied with most forums I've found and come from some of the smaller imageboards in hope that I can find a similar but more active community. I really like some of the ideas behind tildes and I think that it has learned a lot from its predecessor's shortcomings but I guess that is yet to be seen.

    Hey all - I've slowly been migrating all my accounts away from my real name, so I'll introduce myself as what I go by on Twitch and Discord: @cancel. For the above reason, I won't post my reddit username, but I have mostly posted on hobbyist subbreddits (r/mechanicalkeyboards, r/mechmarket, r/fountain_pens, r/watches, etc) along with some gaming subreddits. If you know my name, it's probably from a) the word, but b) Crypt of the Necrodancer, where I founded a competitive speedrunning league that's been running for around three years at this point.

    I'm now an attorney, so I might post some legal-related stuff on here. Not entirely sure how I want to interact with this site yet; my vibe is mostly small, dedicated communities, and right now things feel a bit like a scrum (though way less so than Reddit!). Hoping to get hobbyist communities up and running, too.

    Hello all

    Same name here as on reddit. Over there I mod /r/bestoflegaladvice. I'm not as disillusioned with reddit as I'm sure a lot of you are (hell, I even genuinely like the redesign over there and have been using it since the early alphas). I'm here because I always like seeing new communities as they grow and checking out what they do better or worse than others.

    Hey all, Kenji here, same username as reddit

    I've been on the internet for a while lol (neopets/napster/kazaa/etc). Back in 2006-2007, mainly used stumble upon. Then found digg for a bit. Eventually went to reddit instead, better content, less nonsense, it just felt like an awesome place to find/discuss topics.

    Lately though, i'm looking for a replacement. I see the same memes on reddit all the time. Same stories. Same comments. You can open a thread and guess 75% of the comments already, depending on the topic. It's fun, but after so many times, it gets old. Especially when it's a topic that should be taken more seriously. There's always a time and place.

    I hope this site takes off. I want that discussion again.

    Hey Everyone, I'm Zac.

    I am a 27-year-old college student and certified Tree trimmer. Building computers and reading about computer hardware news is my biggest hobby, but I also like guitar, playing video games, and motorcycles. Unlike a lot of people around these parts currently, I have never been a mod on Reddit, I've never found myself to be dedicated enough to a community to pay attention to it at all times. I'm too eclectic and many interests enter my purview and exit on a regular basis.

    I'm a Reddit user trying to find a better place to migrate to where the users aren't as inclinated to start a heated argument over relatively minor stuff (Reddit promotes that sort of behavior especially with the upvote downvote thing.)

    I've been on Reddit right after digg did their redesign and I've been on digg before that happened. I'm in my early thirties even still I'm mostly interested in games, cooking, and politics.

    I'm Buddy. That's a nickname my parents gave me when I was a toddler, and they haven't called me by my real name since (unless I was in trouble; I knew I screwed up when one of them said my real name). I've never went by this name online before because it has always been taken and I'm of the opinion that if someone else already has the name its theirs and adding numbers or other things on the end is just unoriginal and dumb (no offense to anyone who likes that, I just don't like it personally). Something Buddy0034957 or ||Buddy|| just feels like I'm ripping someone off.

    Anyway, I'm a Reddit transplant, like almost everyone else here. I've used Reddit for ten years, but it has just changed so much. I hate memes and can't stand going into a thread hoping for legitimate discussion but only seeing jokes and puns. On Reddit, every thread is a contest of who can make the best joke and get the most upvotes. I can't stand it. I miss real, genuine discussion, so I have high hopes for this site.

    I'm also extremely tired of politics dominating everything. I have over 35 political-themed subreddits filtered/blocked, yet still see politics everywhere. I'm tired of hearing "Trump bad, liberal good." I'm not a republican or fan of Trump, but holy hell, it's all anyone can talk about anymore. I'm really hoping there is less of that here.

    I'm a hunter and fisherman, have been since before I could even walk (with some help from my dad), and I'm always down to talk about either. I also do a ton of reading and own so many books I don't even have enough space to store them. Every now and then I'll play some Xbox One, as well. Just getting back into PUBG after taking a short break (short being about 4 months) and all my friends have stopped playing, so if anyone wants to play let me know. I have around 20 wins and ain't bad, but I won't lie and tell you I'm amazing. I'm good enough. If anyone wants to play, let me know.

    Hey--I'm bluesage and also follow the lineage of digg to reddit and now tildes. I might be a bit of an anomaly here (69 year old person of the female persuasion) but I'm still curious about all the things. And facebook makes me throw up a little in my mouth every time I am forced to go there. Fingers crossed this site thrives.

    Hey Folks!

    I just your resident programmer/gamer/stoner enjoying a new place to explore on the internet.

    Work: Currently working on some location based AR applications and helping out on the web side of things when needed. At my current role, I feel like I'm being paid to play!

    Games: I play too many. In the past weekend, WoW, Destiny 2, Warframe, Dauntless, Monster Hunter: World, NHL 18, Elder Scrolls Online, Bless Online (for about 45 minutes), and probably some others!

    Weed: Current strains are "Tangerine Kush" and "Moonshine Haze".

    Other: Remodeling, outdoorsing, and most other typical adult stuff!

    I'm from the reddits too. Lawyer, jack of all trades, philosopher, and poly. I lurk more than I post, but I look forward to what this could be.

    Hi everybody,

    I'm Halfdeaf everywhere on the internet except two places. Reddit convert since this morning. I'm really liking this place so far. Nice people with stuff to say, lots of civil discourse. I've mostly been lurking reddit for the past 8 or so years and feel like I need to start involving myself more in things like this wonderful promising place.

    I'm battling a slight impostor syndrome, seeing all the names here, mods and admins and what not. I've been casually looking for a communtity to join for some time now after I decided reddit wasn't the place it once was. ~ just happened to be brought to my attention at the right time while randomly wandering into that reddit vs Facebook thread from r/all.

    Anyway, games of all shapes and sizes, tech, books, sci fi, fantasy, food and interesting things are my thing. Chef, father, dog owner, I guess I am.

      Welcome to ~! Your dog must quite enjoy that his human is a chef, I bet the homemade treats are extra tasty.

    Hello I am cyberpagan. I am interested in cyberpunk-esque DIY electronics, experimental music, practical anti-capitalism, Terry Pratchett and drugs. I enjoy talking about all these things online and have been looking for a good place to do so. Reddit only gets worse and vote makes me sick. Been here since this morning and so far have high hopes.

    Hi, I'm clerical_terrors. I took that username a while ago on Reddit when I started moderating and I grew to like it. Even after I tried to distance myself from it and deleted the Reddit account. I care a lot about video games, anime, programming, cooking and online discussion in general (part of the reason I wanted to moderate on Reddit was because I wanted to see what it was like on the 'other side')

    hey all, i'm tori. i'm 29 and live in texas. i'm a product manager for identity and access management at an enterprise saas company. i dont have many hobbies just because of life: i have three kids, a husband, three dogs, and a fairly high-stress job. during the week, i mostly like to unwind on the couch with a few drinks, watch our shows, and catch up with my husband. we go out to dinner often and go out to brunch with friends every weekend. i love to churn credit cards and then redeem those points to travel. we're going to amsterdam and germany next month on business class flights, all for free. i'm excited to be part of this community! so far i'm already loving it.

    edit: i'm from reddit like everyone else and am /u/toritxtornado over there.

    I'm Donald_Trump. ...Kind of regretting picking this username but 🤷 no going back now.

    I'm interested in serious discussions about music (music theory, music history etc.). None of reddit's music subreddits are really worth while, and /mu/ is, well, /mu/;* I'm hoping it'll be possible to foster some kind of music community on here since there aren't many alternatives. I'm especially interested in talking about jazz and classical music.

    */mu/ has some decent discussions occasionally but it's mostly shitposts

        Haha thank you, but I think I'll stick with it. It'll be a badge of shame, if you will.
