often the same thing, unless we're talking about darqwolff.

Discoverability is a major problem with that setup then. Half of the fun of reddit has always been learning of new places and new subreddits, and if you're only watching what you follow, you can't do that.

Mostly, I'm just amused by the hubriski (if that's not a word, I'm making it one) of thinking that you've solved Eternal September. If you don't know me from reddit, I was a mod of subredditdrama for a long time. I love to watch chaos, and it always comes. It comes fastest to the places arrogant enough to think they're immune to it.

Even though you've already gone to the trouble of ignoring me, most likely, it does amuse me that you're thin-skinned enough that you can't take critique with a bit of snark.

The ignore function is a good idea, but it suffers from an inherent flaw: volume. If and when this site takes off, the "overrun of low-quality users" will exceed your capacity to ignore them all. The signal will be lost in the noise, and the system will fall. I've been around for a long time, and that's how it always goes. You'll end up jumping around to hashtags that aren't flooded with shit, just as redditors jump around to subreddits that aren't flooded with shit, and eventually the exodus will begin anew.

    that specific problem is easy to analyze, foresee, and prevent.
If this were the case, Eternal September wouldn't be a thing anymore.

Then who was updot?

You're implying that hubski will never become profit oriented and shitty.

You cannot escape Eternal September. It comes to all sites and ruins all things. Also, you seem especially butthurt, but given that you're the original subreddit drama, I can't really blame you.

Edit: I should probably note that I have no confidence in Hubski's features being able to prevent its downfall. It will fall. All fall.

What, are you trying to get me to link you back?

creepig  ·  3085 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A fair warning for all Hubsters

before GoA.

You say that like you don't remember the great Digg migration at all.

    with no "downdot", there's no way for certain content to be quantitatively discouraged, only encouraged.

Which is why I'm not at all upset by people being mad that I started #hubskidrama. They can't downdot me.

creepig  ·  3085 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: So I deleted my reddit account...

Yes.

There's also no way to updot past 8, so karma won't be as big of a thing.

It's like he doesn't think there will ever be drama on hubski.
