    I'm u/nate and u/nallen on reddit, mod of r/science and a few others. I'd like to eventually start hosting AMAs here without having to pull a bunch of tricks to make them viable and accessible, reddit didn't work out for that as I'm sure you know!

      💖

      p.s. /u/spez's reply to you all was absolutely infuriating to read. It basically boiled down to "you don't deserve 'special' treatment and should have to compete with all the low-effort garbage on equal footing" and "you should just put more effort into promotion" when you tried that already and do this amazing, hard work for free while having real jobs on top of it too. Him trying to turn it around by accusing you of "gaming the system" was the really rage inducing part though... 😠

      Sorry for the rant, it just genuinely upset me to see such a flippant and accusatory comment from him. Just know that you all at /r/science are welcome here and we even had a discussion today about potentially using stickies on the front page for special "group events" to ensure that huge effort, time sensitive, high quality events don't go unnoticed, like /r/books & /r/science AMAs do on reddit.

      Oh, damn are we glad to see you here.

      First - we've got your back, though it'll take a while to get this place truly ready for prime time. We've been pondering weighed voting for some time now, and tags that multiply vote weight are a natural extension of that concept which would almost effortlessly solve the AMA visibility problems... and that's assuming the exemplary upvote wasn't enough on it's own.

      What you've got to offer us, though, is perspective. We've got some semi-formed and rather radical ideas on building the moderation system for this place, and the organic goal/result of that system will be teams of thousands of moderators for every large community. Considering you run the largest modding community on reddit you've got the experience and insight to poke holes in our ideas and make them better.

      That link is rather old writing, but it will get you the general idea. We're putting a new more concrete proposal together soon for everyone to read... once we trim the fat from the last three days of brainstorming and make it presentable. I would love love love to get your feedback on that when it's ready, and also hear from you what kind of systems and improvements the /r/science team has been missing and dreaming about having. Getting all the mod perspectives we can is critical to getting the design of the modding systems here right.

      Also, fuck Spez, full stop. We've had similar dealings with him in listentothis on occasion.

        I'm glad to offer insight on our mod team, it was my original idea so I've seen it start to current. The concept is really social-engineering based and selecting people based on behavior they don't know they are demonstrating. It's been effective for r/science.

          As users here gain trust, we need to have an automated system watching for those behaviors and deciding who to bring into the mod pool - so your criteria for good behavior is very relevant. We're also thinking about allowing the large mod teams to tag and police and vote on each-other's actions somehow... some sort of feedback system where the mods gain and lose reputation as mods based on the group's collective judgement. I'm not even sure that's a strictly necessary system. I have to imagine you've had a few flights of fancy along the lines of 'wouldn't this be easier if' that might point the way to the right kinds of tools for that job.

            A feature I have been asking reddit to make for a long time is finer grain permissions, like being able to set some mods to only remove comments, but not approve them, for example. Some mods to remove posts, but not touch comments. Some with the power to approve, but not remove. Everyone has the ability to request that an action be taken by someone else.

            Also, finer grain permissions for what mods can allow users to do, maybe a karma minimum for voting? That would stop brigades.

            I really think control of behavioral actions is a great solution, one that is under utilized by reddit.

              The idea has been that this wouldn't be one hardcoded sitewide system, it's be a menu of options to turn on and off, and a bunch of fields, dials, and sliders on those options to tailor how they work on a per-group basis. The settings that work in young groups won't work in old ones, and based on topic matter alone there will be vastly different configurations - so we want it to be flexible.

              What you're describing here should be no problem - along with allowing you to pick precise thresholds for access to all of these features for the younger mod team members, as they earn their way into the system.

              You might also have some sway over the thresholds that communities under ~science (like say ~science.physics, ~science.biology etc) have to meet for a post to bubble-up into ~science.

              The tricky part is getting you good reporting data on the effects these systems are having - without violating anyone's privacy in the process. ;)

      Ayyy! Long time no talk! I remember it must have been years ago now when we were talking in the clouds about an alternative metamod community to the default subs that might actually be able to work for subs that were large and had to deal with the pressures of a less-than-sophisticated userbase but weren't necessarily defaults.

    Hello! I'm @ScarWhom (actually @Whom now, ain't I cool?). If someone really wanted to stalk me it wouldn't be difficult to find my Reddit name, but I'm going to consider this a second restart, for various reasons.

    I'm probably mostly going to camp ~music and ~games, being a frequenter of RateYourMusic and Glitchwave. I also like to get involved in trans communities and stuff, if anything like that ever pops up here.

    Mostly I like a lot of the principles that governed the internet of old (or honestly any time before forum culture up and died) and I stupidly fantasize about being around for BBSes and the like. This site gets me SO excited, as everything mentioned in the docs and blog has me nodding my head vigorously, and I've been looking for something with this kind of attitude that is actively against hate speech but also isn't tied too heavily with politics.

    Basically I already love it here and I love all of you!

I've never had a FB account, never tweeted and only joined reddit a few weeks ago when I decided it was the least offensive of all the other choices out there.

    Hi, I was /u/cfabbro on reddit until I deleted that account a little over 2 years ago in protest during the blackout. I created /r/reddithax (with chromakode, before he was an admin), was a mod of /r/suicidewatch, /r/ideasfortheadmins (with the lovely @krispykrackers before she was an admin), /r/help and a bunch of other subreddits including many of the defaults back in the day... and was responsible for some rather infamous defacing of the site on April 1, 2009.

    E.g. turning most of reddit into reddigg, /r/WTF into WTFark, /r/science into Sciencedot, /r/politics & /r/worldnews into President Sarah Palin's version of Whitehouse,gov (no archive of that, sadly) and a few others.

    After April Fools I kinda disappeared into alt accounts and kept a low profile, though I did use one (no-shit-sherlock) to create and run /r/coversongs. Besides that, not much else to tell other than I have been waiting for a really long time for a viable reddit alternative that isn't a bastion of memes and/or hatespeech. When @deimos said he was going to work on one I was on board immediately.

    I'm /u/Flashynuff on Reddit, and most other platforms.

    I "mod" at /r/listentothis, /r/music, /r/me_irl, and a few other places. Lately I've been really burnt out on reddit, so I feel like a fresh start on a new and interesting site could be fun! I've always wanted to see reddit be a place where I can go for text-heavy discussion and interesting articles, but it's just gone so far away from that and I don't think it's possible to bring it back.

    I also like the idea of being actively against hate speech and the like. Reddit's gone too far off the deep end in that regard and the administration isn't willing to take the steps necessary to make it a decent community to be associated with. I'm really excited to participate in this site from the start and be a guiding force in how the tone here develops!

    @Parliament here. I'm another long-time L2T and music mod on reddit. I got into it when I started a subreddit for a niche genre 6 years ago, won a few monthly elections in /r/listentous, then was invited to mod L2U and L2T soon after. I don't really remember what it was like to browse reddit without being a moderator. I would love to get back to my roots and what truly hooked me into reddit - posting, curating, and discussing music. Other interests/passions as well, but especially music since it has become associated with laborious mod duties. Too much of my reddit time has evolved into janitorial/administrative work (despite all the incredible automation I've utilized), and it's led to serious burnout on all my teams.

    My goal is to help ~ become everything that let's me down about reddit and other platforms. Thank you to @Amarok for keeping me in the loop about the site and sending me an invite. Been a joy getting to know you through L2T.

    Salut! Like a lot of people here, I'm a moderator that has loved Reddit in the past but grew disenfranchised as its corporate interests grew transparent. I currently proudly moderate /r/CasualConversation (thanks for the invite @tiz! ^_^) and /r/WriteWorld, and in the past a different, more musical server, all of which I love greatly more than their host website at this stage. Seeing this hopeful little place that aims not only to emulate the wholesome community-focused atmosphere of Reddit but to improve on long-standing flaws in its foundation is truly a breath of fresh air among a sea of voats and snapzus, and to see it thrive is truly a warming feeling for me.

    Where will I be here? I'm quite the film and music enthusiast in everything from Lynch to LCD Soundsystem, so I'll definitely be perched, legs dangling, on the edges of ~movies and ~music! I love my writing, so ~creative will be a nice little neighbourhood for me too, I'm sure. :-)

              You'll get no argument from me. We still love reddit here at ~ (we're just disappointed with the direction it's been heading) and most of us still use it daily (less so in the last few days for obvious reasons). And there is also absolutely no denying that is the primordial soup from which most of us spawned. It saddens us that they are making it increasingly hard to have meaningful, long lasting discussions there and that they clearly don't value the high effort, long-form content communities' efforts as much as they do the traffic that the wildly popular, low-effort ones bring. So we're just hoping to fill that niche and allow that longer form content a place to thrive again.

    Greetings and salutations! I happen to be yet another from the /r/CasualConversation mod team (@tiz appears to be slowly taking this website over! Bwahahaha!). I'm mostly poking around for reddit alternatives due to some disagreement I have with the half-hearted implementation of new features and lack of transparency about what's currently transpiring. I've heard good words from the other mods and am hoping to contribute to this lovely site however I can!

    Being the longtime bard that I am, I'll very likely be hanging out around ~music and ~creative, and some extra special care at ~games since I'm going to start DMing soon! Here's to a wonderful little community and all of our contributions to it! <3

    Howdy folks, I'm Crius.

    Long story short some time ago I got very interested in the Greek mythology and created my account on a rpg board and the name fitted my character :)

    It's not hard to find me on Reddit (and everywhere else honestly) but I don't want to be identified with other communities profile as the persona we become is usually highly influenced by the social environment we find ourselves in. Also I miss a lot the more tight knitted communities of the time bbForums where widespread (Tapatalk is still a thing?)

    You probably guessed, one of my interest is social behaviour. I'm not a professional in that field anyway, on the "contrary" I'm a software engineer specialized in web applications for small/medium companies. The bigger company I've worked for it's the one I'm in right now and it's a no profit regulatory body. That should clarify my vision on the current directions of most websites and companies :P

    On top of that I'm am old time hardcore gamer turned father of two with a stressed wife so, there is that. Be patient if sometimes I'm having a bad day.
    About this, one of my self-appointed role here would be to try and make people view the other side in an heated discussion. It's nearly an impossible thing to do on Reddit with its downvote-leaded and one-liner replies approach. I believe strongly that even in the worst viewpoint there is something to reflect and learn upon. If not else, by just trying to understand the reason behind a negative viewpoint.

    I'll probably hang on a lot on ~games, ~comp and ~talk and try and contribute to the source code as soon as it's possible :)

    Also, as soon as there are APIs, I'll try my hand to a mobile client, mostly because I keep postponing experimenting with mobile development due to lack of motivation.
    I understand the tech goal and the fact that with responsive design, an app is not really required, but I also see that to get traction a platform need to reach a critical mass of adopters and having a native app imho will help. Of course it will be open source development so everyone is welcome :)

    See you around!

      My brother is about to have his second kid poach my birthday in a couple weeks, so I feel like I can pretend to understand a little of what the family life is like because it's happening one sibling over (and he complains a fair amount about his life).

        Ah, be nice to your brother. Parents need someone they can vent about their stress with kids/partner.
        I've got lucky and have coworkers and we've sort of "Coffee Monday Club" in which we vent and sarcastically talk about our family's weekends but in the end we love our families, it's just not all honey and sugar with kids, lots of stress comes from slowly realising that you're not really in control :)
        The half hours of pure demonstration of love make up for all the dirty diapers, temper tantrums and teenage rebellion in the end.

        At least I hope. We're still going through the fucking teenage phase on one side and temper tantrum on the other side, here. I going to take some deep breath now, excuse me :P

    Hey, i'm @fringly, aka /u/fringly on reddit and y'know, a bunch of other places.

    On reddit I mod WritingPrompts and I spend most of my time either there trying to help new writers or trying to get control of my keyboard away from my cat, who feels it distracts me from important ear scratching duties.

    Gotta say that I was impressed by being able to read the terms of use, code of conduct and privacy policy in about 5 minutes. I am currently batting with GDPR issues in the UK and this site seems to be exactly what the EU wants, an open forum where people can control what they share in an open environment.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this site grow!

    Hi gang. I'm also /u/boredop on reddit - a former mod of /r/listentothis and a bunch of smaller music subs. I eventually got burned out on moderating and on most music on reddit in general. I'm still out there listening though ... These days my reddit posting mostly consists of baseball comments, but it seems like even that is running its course as the signal to noise ratio in my team's subreddit slowly gets worse and worse.

    Anyway, I saw a mention of tildes in theoryofreddit, saw that evilnight (sorry, I mean @Amarok) and @arghdos are on board, so here I am. Hope you all like jazz.

    Hello.

    I am an amateur artist interested in the art of Katsuhiro Otomo, Jamie Hewlett, Boneface, and John Dyer Baizley. I enjoy art that is heavy on intricate line work, and countered by bright colors.

    I am also an amateur programmer interested in malware analysis and execution. I enjoy C, Python, and Perl.

    I was introduced to online forums early on and frequented SomethingAwful and G4's Off-Topic forums. When 4chan stopped being just a dumping ground for m00t's hentai collection, I started frequenting there sometime around early 2004. Kevin Rose was my first introduction to computer exploits with his Dark Tips segment on The Screen Savers. His thebroken podcast also struck a chord with my edgy teen self. When I found out he was creating a social news website and a weekly podcast to talk about the week's most popular stories I jumped aboard. I moved to Reddit during the Digg exodus. At first I could not stand Reddit's layout. When the podcasts ended and Digg updated their site it became virtually unusable. I saw that Reddit had undergone a facelift so I went there.

    I made two accounts over the years and stopped signing in all together. I would lurk more than I would interact. Lately just lurking is a pain. If you aren't signed in you are harassed to use an app right from the start. I just want to use the site for some interesting stories and discussion. That led me here. Pretty comfy I must say.

    I came from reddit like many of the people here. On reddit I'm (redacted for privacy) and most of my comments tend to be programming-related. I've been getting a bit frustrated with the reddit community lately and especially with the direction that reddit itself is moving toward, and I noticed a comment about /r/RedditAlternatives on a discussion about the redesign and decided to try out Tildes as a result. I've never been a mod of anything, reddit or otherwise.

    Ultimately I chose to come here because of the blog post. Everything in there resonated a lot with me with regards to what I believe an online community of complete strangers should be like, and I'm excited about the prospect of being able to contribute to the site's development in the future.

    I'm four days late but this was near the top in 'activity' sort so...

    I'm Mumberthrax. I go by Mumberthrax pretty much everywhere, reddit, discord, etc. I stumbled upon the mechanism to make /u/publicmodlogs work, and with @go1dfish's advice and help it's been used by a lot of people to publish their moderation logs on reddit for transparency/trust/accountability improvement, which i think is cool.

    For a while I was an admin of the survival minecraft server at nerd.nu, originally the official /r/minecraft server. It was fun, I was the wrong person for the job, and I learned a lot about moderation, cronyism, bureaucracy (the good and the bad), etc. etc.

    Those two are my main claims to fame.

    I like the idea of places for civil conversation - especially when it comes to contentious subjects. I'm frustrated with groupthink and echo chambers (and the outgroup bigotry this engenders), astroturf and censorship, and disgusted by social media companies allowing ideology and dollar signs drive them to make decisions which obliterate the public forum that the internet could be through them.

    That's probably enough. I have a tendency to write too much.

A couple of them were "power users" and we were all, for some reason, stressed by how every single post we were making was going to do. All of that went away as soon as we made a new account. Some of them eventually connected their old accounts to the new one.

        But it was weird how much stress we chose to put on ourselves for a bunch of parasocial relationships. They felt way more important than they should.

I see Reddit's changes as selling out, pure and simple. I can sympathize with needing/wanting to get paid, like most of us do, but it also means I'm going to look for an alternative that I'd rather use.

      Hi, welcome to ~ @Kronk. Yeah the smaller subs were always my wheelhouse as well. Once subreddits get to a certain size, unless they have a mountain of moderators to keep all the new/unfamiliar with the culture users in line, they tend to go to shit. But even then, the small subreddits are the only place where the real community feel still exists on reddit IMO. We're hoping, through the trust system (amongst others) to help even large communities keep that same feel here. Wish us luck! :P

That was a wild ride using a singleboardcomputer as a desktop for like 7 months, but that's all over now that I've got this relatively zippy laptop. So you might see me posting in ~games trying to catch up on all that lost time.

    I'm from the UK and a lover of puns so just mentally block me out if they make you groan. I grew up watching Bottom and The Young Ones (perks of having a tv with a tape player in your room), and then grew even further up into loving Tim Minchin, Bo Burnham, Carlin and some of those guys that can have you laughing at something before you've got time to realize how depressing it is. I also probably enjoy documentaries more than I should, so if you've got any faves then hmu. One for you is "hypernormalisation".

    I'm carrying Atari_5200 over. I've done the Reddit gig for I think five years or a bit longer maybe? Plenty of time to get fed up at least. I've modded or helped mod a few subs, but nothing that'd really impress this crowd.

    I found Tildes in a reply to a comment DubTeeDub (big fan btw) made calling out admins about hate subs.

    If it's on message for this place I'd like to help make an RC hobbyist community, but if not I'm sure I'll still find something useful to do around here.

    Hi everyone.

    I'm boywonder. I've had a few names over the years, /u/lnterlinked on Reddit amongst others.

    I am not a mod or anything like that (surprised to see so many Reddit mods here, it's like going for a job interview and seeing all of the managers from your company there), I spend most of my time on the pc building, hardware news and csgo subs. I play a lot of games and like to tinker with PCs most of the time.

    You all seem like an interesting and friendly bunch, I look forward to hanging out with you.

I have been using forums (mostly gaming) all the way back to Gamewinners (which recently shut down).
