      My title sucks, couldn't word it better.

      So, I hate having to use the tilde char. Doing tildes.net~tildes is much harder for me than tildes.net/t/tildes. It would be cool if tildes also supported using "/t/". I am not suggesting to remove the "~", but make one redirect to the other.

      Looking at the development setup page, the suggested setup is to use vagrant to create and provision a VM. Out of curiosity, is there a reason for this preference over setting up a Tildes Docker image inside the repo? Tildes seems like a pretty simple and straightforward web app, it shouldn't be difficult to create. Is it just a developer preference of Deimos/Tildes devs? Or is there a logistical reason?

    3. Tildes mobile app

      I wasn’t able to find a discussion on this, though I’m sure there has been, and for that, I apologize.

      Is there any kind of timeframe on the release of a mobile app for tildes?

      I would guess that on Reddit most of their traffic comes from people accessing the site on their phones at this point, but I could be wrong. In any case, it certainly is a large portion of the users that access the site in this way.

      With that in mind, it would be nice to be able to access tildes from a mobile app to do away with the clunkiness that comes with using the site through a mobile browser. I don’t mean to sound like it’s terrible. The site functions well enough through a mobile browser, but it would certainly have me using tildes a lot more if the convenience of a mobile app was available.

      I’m sure the developers are very busy, and I don’t want to sound demanding, I’m just curious.

      And once again, I apologize if this has been discussed recently.

      I was playing WoW last night and realized that the Guild Charter system is the perfect way to get around this issue. For those unfamiliar, a guild is a group of players that can complete activities that are impossible solo. To create a guild, you need to have 5 signatures - that is, other players agreeing to join the guild and help it grow. The issue with Reddit is that you have new communities pop up, flourish for a few weeks, and die. The number of "signatures" required can be changed to whatever fits, as 5 is too low for an online community, but it accomplishes several things, such as making sure it is relevant, making sure it stays active, and giving users a stake in growth. You could even tie this into the trust system as well, with higher trust users being able to use less "signatures" to create a group. I'm sure @Deimos can refine it.
