What have been your favourite threads on Tildes so far?
They don't have to be significant in any way; just threads you personally enjoyed.
The ones that immediately come to mind for me are:
Chasing the American dream has got me jaded - started by @dodger.
grab some tea baby, it's midnight. this is today's slam thread. - led by the fantastic @earlgreytea.
Neither of them had hundreds of comments, and neither of them were particularly active; I just find myself particularly fond of them for whatever reason.
Quite recent, but the thread about people sharing the disabilities that affect them is the sort of thing I'm happy to see on Tildes.
I agree! It was really fascinating to me, and I really hope that Tildes can be a positive force for them; it seems like the ethos of it and everything would lend itself to being a fantastic resource for people with disabilities given a bit of userbase expansion and luck.
Ooh, I hadn't see that one!
@deimos would it be considered "obnoxious" generally by the weird people who put tracking bits on links like that if Tildes' method of canonisation was replacing everything after the "?" with "ref=tildes.net"?
I'm an avid Redditor and now Tilder, and I never felt bothered by reposts, not even once. I'm generally quite chill about these things, it takes less than half a second to scroll through anyway. Even though it doesn't really bother me, I find the endless complaining actually more annoying than the thing itself.
I personally enjoyed How do you pronounce "NES"? Nintendo throws a wrench in the debate started by Deimos.
That one was really fun!
One content-based thread: Patrick Stewart will reprise the role of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in a brand new "Star Trek" series. Because the fanboy in me just can't stop squealing at the idea that Patrick Stewart / Jean-Luc Picard is coming back to Star Trek!
One discussion thread: Rewriting History: what one decision would you go back and have someone change? Because I like alternative history.
One chat thread: Why did you choose this username for your Tildes account? Because it was a different take on a "getting to know everyone" thread, and explained some of these usernames we see every day.
It's interesting to read through that thread a few months later. So many of those users haven't been active on Tildes for a long time. For some of them, explaining their username was their one and only contribution here. It's especially ironic to see the people who say they wanted to nab special usernames like three-letter combinations or novelty labels, to prove they were here in the early days before all the supposedly "good" usernames got taken - but they haven't posted since then to demonstrate their longevity. Those "good" usernames are now lost forever.
Yeah, I think it's behavior that was predicted and hard to stop.
It's okay though, Kenny's here.
Of course it's predictable. I just found it interesting.
Umm. Why are you talking to yourself, Algernon?
I added a post-script. But it's not on-topic for my previous comment, so rather than edit it in, I added it on. I've seen other people do the same thing here.
Maybe I should try that sometime.
I still think about @Qis' HELP trapped in one day time loop regularly. So, that.
I also really love @Kat's Demographics Survey if only for this response to the occupation question:
Your friend is both hilarious and correct, then.
aw, cool. do one yourself sometime I bet it'd be good :-)
What tea are yall drinking today?
Was my favorite because I could talk about tea for hours and it was really fun to give some suggestions to people and to learn more about coffee from u/earlgreytea
