Nearly everything that new reddit does. Tracking, huge ads, going closed source, removing dowvotes, vote fuzzing, tons of paid flairs, trying to integrate cryptos …

Yeah new reddit is so awful it really seems necessary to re-implement the simplicity that was old reddit

Do not forget being a tool of USA MIC ;)

That is just horrible.

karma. one reason we have so much high-quality content here is because there’s no incentive to gain upvotes. upvotes aren’t displayed on your profile and no communities are locked to people below a certain upvote count. if karma were added to Lemmy, we’d get a lot of pandering to the lowest common denominator and the entire community would become stratified

Lemmy originally did have karma (i think we called it something else), but it was removed because it’s parasitic, so you don’t need to be afraid of that one coming back.

This, so much of what’s wrong with reddit is the obsession with making internet number go up.

the two big things that would make me less as enthused about Lemmy, would be the removal of downvotes and making votes transparent (i.e. showing people who voted, and what they voted).

Both interesting ideas, though

Excellent question. I think a Hexbear-like abandonment of federating functionality Because Reasons. Federating is at the heart and soul of everything as far as I’m concerned, so that is make or break for me.

And maybe, if it just became a really shallow low effort community. I decided I had enough of Tildes when a commenter there confidently explained and debated at length that MLK jr. would have been a “moderate” in the modern politics sense.

That development gets inflexible to support OpenRC and Apache HTTPD by making it dependent of specific features of systemd and Nginx.

Honestly I’m getting quite sick of the number buttons all over the screen already. If Lemmy keeps cluttering the UI under the fallacy where it’s still comprehensive to the devs who have been here for months I’m gonna jump ship.

I don’t really know what you mean?

And yes, it’s a bit cluttered.

I’m confused. Hexbear got rid of downvotes. Which happens to be my anti-suggestion. Don’t get rid of downvotes.

My search on ddGo yields nothing meaningful about the : “… anti-suggestions thread”
which is in the head of this post …
What is it ? Would you know … since you refer to : “anti-suggestion” in your comment ?

An anti-suggestion is the opposite of a suggestion. It’s something you don’t want the devs to add.

Supposing that banning should even be a thing, why would voting be the one action you can take that you shouldn’t get banned for? If you comment in certain ways, you can be banned. If you post certain stories, you can be banned. You can be banned for trying to poke around in non-page urls (hacking), you can be banned for all sorts of stuff.

But if you go around downvoting stories that are relevant to that community, that should be protected? If you go around downvoting comments that are in line with that community, that should be protected?

Given that the only things anyone should probably downvote (spam, blatant abuse) are the very things mods exist to take care of, it’s not even clear that voting should be a thing at all.

I think we should find ways to protect valid votes. I’ve been fighting downvote bots.

Giving communities a choice to disable votes or requiring a yswr be a subscriber and or have a minimum account age is one way to help insure only votes count. Reddit seems to sell votes and I don’t like that. You can pay a 3rd party to make your post appear on the front page.

Cheers for fighting downvote bots … … but, but, but : typos !
a yswr ==>> a user
You van pay ==>> You can pay
only votes ==>> only (?true?) votes

What prevents someone from subscribing to a community whose topic/purpose they despise, merely so they can downvote everything in it? That is not a constructive use of voting, and many do that without resorting to bots (so successful anti-bot initiatives won’t do anything about it).

Voting doesn’t actually do anything that any sensible community should want.

Reddit seems to seel votes

They sell votes, explicitly now. You can pay to have ads appear on the front page, and those look like most any other post.

Furthermore, for select clients, they sell these same but not marked as ads.

Not disagreeing. Just pointing out.

I don’t know enough about the relevant law to understand whether there are any reporting requirements or not, but if there are they’re just skirting those.

I have no proof I can offer, but I am convinced that this is so.

“Valid votes” which only confirm your opinion? How do you know they are bots?

Age mostly.
