Now, what surprisingly worked well is the resulting syrup that came out of this! It's a nice shade of yellow, smells and tastes sweet, and has the flavor of Buddha's Hand without the bitterness or the taste of rind.

I gave the bottle of it to my mother, and she has already used half of it, pouring it on strawberries and mixing it in with rice and milk. It apparently blends very well with other fruits. I had a bit myself with strawberries and it was like a fruity heaven. Very sweet and very fragrant.

Will do! I candied the fruit within a day of buying it, does it really go bad that quickly?

It's really hard to describe. Do you know Lemonhead candies? Or like any "lemon-flavored" candy, how it's not exactly lemon-tasting but it's close.

Raw, it tastes like typical citrus rind, with its own off-lemon flavor. After candying, it gets a lot sweeter and fleshed out and the texture changes to being a bit gummy-like.

are bots compatible with this site? Someone could design a snapshotbot just like in the other place

I like the former more, unless one could screenshot the primary drama somehow? This site does not look like it was designed for internal stuff that well

Perhaps so, perhaps not. Time will tell. The pattern on Reddit was that there was often shenanigans going on that made power users... well, power users. Scopolamina used alt accounts to vote up his stuff and make it more visible, Trapped in Reddit used a comment-recycler bot to gain immense amounts of karma, and a rat-pack of popular users had a "rising threads" private subreddit where bots tracked where the most likely spot to post a comment would gain upvotes.

I wouldn't say they're not capable, but considering the case of Karmanaut ( a rather long tale where no one really won or did anything but people are still pissed for whatever reason to this day) and other similar users, it seems like a lot of them wouldn't fit in over here.

Just as I've posted my little rant here and gotten responses that are not calling me a shill, I can see the why it's liked.

Though the rampant circlejerking seems to have taken effect already

Syncretic has been pushing hubski for a couple months now, as have other of Reddit's powerusers. When a well-known community member jumps ship, his followers will, well, follow in his stead. I'm fairly sure that Syncretic wanted his legion of followers from reddit to come here with him, though.

It's mainstream now, is all. Put on your black framed glasses and get some records with artificial reverb, we're going full Brooklyn Heights now!

Oh hi! Does most of broke have an account?

huggableplum  ·  3078 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Circle Circle, Dot (You know what to do)

>everybody else posting in there is posting inside reddit modmail jokes in the standard childish circle-jerky language. I imagine this will be rather frowned upon by the existing Hubski community

Kyle pls

Lelz. The "exodus" of reddit's powerusers, ever in search of ego-petting, have landed ship here, and brought with them the hordes of their followers. They never had thoughtful discussions to begin with, amassing 'karma' with quick snipes and silly images, and their minions will only dampen this website even further.

Your downfall has begun.

Mwahahaha
