      For those of you who, like me, can't read that article, here's a different article from newshub.co.nz that talks about it: Christchurch terror attack: 8chan founder expresses regret

      An undoubtedly horrific subreddit that always seemed to comply with reddit TOS and the admins has been banned, probably related to the NZ shooting video that was in the subreddit yesterday until it was taken down by admins. Looks like they're getting ahead of MSM discovering that this shit exists on the site?

      Will add any updates here.

      r/gore is gone as well.

      From @nacho:

      It's not ahead of controversy, it's in response to the Reuters article calling out /r/watchpeopledie.

      Members of a group called “watchpeopledie” on internet discussion board Reddit, for example, discussed how to share the footage even as the website took steps to limit its spread.

      Reddit - which has over 20 investors, including Conde Nast owner Advance Publications - said it was actively monitoring the situation in New Zealand.

      “Any content containing links to the video stream are being removed in accordance with our site-wide policy,” it said.

    4. What are your thoughts on the Fediverse style model of social media/websites in general? If you are unfamiliar with it, https://peertube.social/videos/watch/9c9de5e8-0a1e-484a-b099-e80766180a6d...

      My friend was rambling about making his own Stackoverflow/quora clone, but with some random specific features.

      Note that this project would probably compete directly with Quora, but have multiple subcomminties like Stackoverflow/Reddit. We think taking programming FAQs from SO is too uphill of a battle to focus on.

      What are some great ideas?

      My friend and I are considering finishing a prototype of a Reddit app. We've already agreed to the following features on first release (if we keep going).

      • Similar urls to current Reddit website (so you can change the URL to reddit.com and see the same page)
      • voting, commenting, posting selftexts and links
      • Directly uploading image posts may come later if it looks complicated
      • Masstagger integrated.
      • Dark theme (other options in later releases)
      • Primary use case: desktop and mobile web.
      • Performance first. Reddit's 1 minute load time on default mobile, missing/broken features on i.reddit.com/.compact, and a few tiny complaints on the desktop site are the primary reasons we are considering writing this app. Native is not in our collective skillsets or radar, so we're going to go the extra mile to make sure the app respects both your time and your battery where possible. We did do some research and found that Reddit has actually been negligent in this regard on mobile web, meanwhile we have years of experience in the subject.
      • Mailbox (send/receive messages, orange icon on new message/comment reply/thread reply).
      • No infinite scroll
      • View source JSON of comments/posts.

      What are some features/ideas that members of this community would really like in a Reddit app?
