I came here from that thread too.

blackwind  ·  1897 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hi I reached my 30 book goal for the summer

Damn. This makes me feel bad about my 17 books for the year. Good job.

I'm currently reading The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge. It's about how even into adulthood the human brain isn't in a permanent state and can constantly change.

I looked through #australia and found it, and I'm glad you remembered me.

I don't spend much time on here unfortunately.

Don't worry, I'm nowhere near the fires so I'm safe. You know, I'm surprised you remembered me. I haven't been here in weeks. Thanks for checking up on us though.

Uhhh... can we get collapsing comments too?

Is theholywombat like /u/awildsketchappeared?

blackwind  ·  2237 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is your favorite freeware game?

Definitely that.

blackwind  ·  2237 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are the advantages and disadvantages of Hubski over reddit?

That's what I've heard.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: 707 followers WTF

Well I'm liking this place so far. Maybe I'll be staying around. 😃

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are the advantages and disadvantages of Hubski over reddit?

Slower, as in posted content. There is a big difference between 8000 and 70million users.

I just don't think it's for me. It's why I love Minecraft so much, sure there can be a lot of action where I could be working in a team but other times I could just be standing there talking in chat. I haven't been on there in ages, but there was this server I went to practice my German and most of my time was spent just talking in chat or me listening to them speak in Teamspeak. I just don't see that happening in Dota 2...

Hey, I have 2 games running right now, I must be twice as dirty.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are the advantages and disadvantages of Hubski over reddit?

And it's so much calmer here.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is your favorite freeware game?

You can never stop. You have to get more cookies, the Grandmas must be appeased!

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is your favorite freeware game?

There's no shame in enjoying a fun simple game.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: When do you get a new dot added to your hubwheel?

Now I'm still a new member, but I see nothing wrong with a way to donate some money if someone likes the site. As long as it's not obnoxious it should be fine.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: When do you get a new dot added to your hubwheel?

What kind of features?

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are the advantages and disadvantages of Hubski over reddit?

I think a lot of people joined Hubski today because of that thread. I know I did.

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: P3

So I have to ask, what was it like living in Germany? Can you speak German?

blackwind  ·  2238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is your favorite freeware game?

I actually have two games open right now, one where I didn't reset and one where I did reset that also had the new beta. The non reset one has 1 chip and would get about 72 more chips if I reset now, and the reset one has 24 chips and would get another 12 I think. 6.6 billion CPS on the non reset one... I probably should stop playing the game but it's too fun for some reason.

Adding onto what Zizz said, from what I've read (5 minutes ago) Zen focuses your experience more on browsing and makes it much more relaxed. It does this by removing all the extra details like numbers of followers.

Althoug I'm really entrenched in reddit (subscribed to 118 subreddits), Hubski is nicer. It's definitely slower, and it feels a lot fresher, I'll just have to wait and see how my experience here turns out.
