For the record, I fully support what the remaining mod team is doing, they are a wonderful group and I trust them completely. I don’t regret the choices I made, only that my actions got a few other mods shit canned in the process.

    This is my first post on here thanks to the shit Admins pulled on you. How best do you recommend continuing the protest? Simply stop using reddit altogether, or is there a malicious compliance you recommend? My usage has gone down significantly since the API changes but I haven’t been able to kick it altogether.

      Unfortunately, that’s probably the only route, IMO

      My usage has gone down significantly since the API changes but I haven’t been able to kick it altogether.

      While it’s not exactly a perfect replacement for reddit yet, lemmy can help with that, i’ve found. If you click to the “all” feed you can basically get a slows/less populated version of reddit r/all. Really all it lacks at the moment is user participation, which has been climbing a lot over just the past few weeks.

        Just to add, sorting All by Top Hour/6H keeps the content fresh. The default Active sorts by comments and favors 1-2 day old threads while Hot regularly resurfaces weeks old threads for some reason.

          After I subscribed to a Canada sublemmy, there was a full two days where I was just constantly being bombarded with threads from literal years ago I’d see a shockingly frightening news thing, click on the thread, start reading, realize this all sounded familiar, and then realize this was like covid news

        First post on here, I have as well followed after the dndmemes mod fiasco by Reddit. Question: does Lemmy allow NSFW content? Asking… For a friend.

          Each community is allowed to set their own standards for the rules they have, there’s no server wide ban necessarily against NSFW, so you should check with the mods of a given community

              One such instance is lemmynsfw.com

              You can subscribe to that instance’s communities from your current account, or make an account there for just NSFW (I personally like to keep my NSFW and regular browsing separate and I find that’s the easiest way 🙂)

                I tried subscribing to Lemmynsfw (found it yesterday) with my account but I couldn’t manage. So I registered another account and will swap between this and that on occasion, which is something I never did on Reddit because I was too lazy to swap so I kept everything on the same profile.

                Cheers :)

      Stopping using Reddit is probably the only effective form of protest. If you don’t want to do that, reducing your usage at all will help. However, the best thing you can probably do is help the Fediverse grow. Your part of that means active participation, be it posts or comments. So that’s what I would encourage you to do: Post things!

          Ttrpg.network, which you joined, is one of many websites that can all communicate together with a common web protocol. This process is called federation and all of those sites together are called the fediverse. So for example, I’m logged into slrpnk.net right now but because both of our sites (called instances) are federated, I can view and comment here, and you’d be able to do the same on any communities hosted on slrpnk.net. You may have heard of mastodon which is more of a twitter alternative but it’s also part of the fediverse, so you should be able to use your account here to view and interact with mastodon content as well if you wish.

          It’s a pretty clever system and while there are hiccups here and there, for me it has been a good replacement for Reddit. We just need more users and content to really get things going.

          This is the fediverse. It’s a bunch of different instances federating with each other, sharing content but remaining individual. That way, no one instance can pull a reddit and go mad with power.

          Imagine hundreds of Reddit sites with hundreds of communities (subreddits) each, that’s the fediverse (federated servers).

          They are called federated servers/instances because they are connected, their uses can interact (vote and comment) between each other.

          For example, you are @djgucci@ttrpg.network commenting on the RPGMemes community on the ttrpg.network, but I’m from the lemmy.world instance commenting on this community. This also means I can have a RPGMemes community back on my instance.

          One explanation that really helped my grasp this I saw a while back was that this is very similar to how email works: Lots of different domains/providers/websites, but ultimately they are all connected and interact with each other.

    Thank you for your service. Fuck the admins.

    Would you be interested in starting a shortstack-and-snitty friendly community, either on this instance or elsewhere on Lemmy? I know it started as a protest, but a genuine (albeit horny) community sprung up really quickly. A lot of users, myself included, legitimately enjoyed what it was shaping into these past couple of days, where normal memes were getting posted alongside horny ones. It made the sub a really enjoyable sex-positive space that wasn’t solely dedicated to sex, and there are not many of those.

    Hello! Here’s Question.

    … how did you do it? How did you transcend fear,pain death and become immortal?

    Asking for a friend.

    But more seriously thank you so much for what you did. You set an example.

    And it wasn’t just about goblin tits ( and throbbing bugbear wang).

    It was about resisting illegitimate execution of authority and the sub became a really cool sex positive space. ( possibly not the mods intent, but it happened.)

    Anyway, I do have one final question.

    For people who support you and the original mods and also the remaining mods…

    What do you suggest we do?

    Abandon that sub completely and just come here and try to make it really active or… what?

    🙏❤️

    They really should lock that sub down, migrate to a full NSFW sub, and leave all new posts pending mod approval with a message from automod directing them to here or the new sub.

    I am livid as the erasure of the snitties and all the amazing goblin mode posting. While this network might not want to go NSFW like that, I was personally all on board with the eventual 10% NSFW memes that seemed to be settling in before the interference.

    I just joined this website and I am very glad to join along for the ride. I hope more subreddits follow this kind of alternative and delete their subs so Reddit can be left in the dust from barely having anything left to see. Would be a justified end for their greed.

    What was your initial reaction when they suddenly created a rule to fire you and blacklist you from being mod again out of nowhere? Must have been quite the surprise, albeit not unexpected.

      No the great one, but I’m going to be completely honest with you. In the course of making memes where I discovered H games like cloud Meadows when I was searching for art.

      I might be attracted to Giants. But not gross looking ones you know I’m talking like hot 10 feet tall guys.

      Other than that bugbears, but I think that’s also a size difference fetish.

      … have I just wanted to date basketball players all this time?

          This actually on while I was searching for an attractive half Giant, I actually found this Manga about a 6 foot one boy who goes to a fantasy world, but he is considered a dwarf, and he is immediately declared the bride of the prince of the Giants.

          ( bright as a gender neutral term for a non-royal spouse of a royal in this world)

          Is this dude from MMO make an ogre or something?

              This is exactly the kind of positive talk that I want to encounter here and I really appreciate you.

              Normally, I say I’m a librarian, but I’m in so much pain today. I really wouldn’t be much reference help but if you need help, please reach out to your local library or even email when I tell people from other countries we don’t care.

    Fuck Spez , I have bailed out of Reddit , it is beyond saving because structurally it is built on a flawed concept of assuming benevolent admins who work for the good of the community , and that is no longer the case , they are too far gone to be able to salvage value from that place and we are better off rebuilding better here.

      I’m truly hoping almost every subreddits come to using an alternative like this and shut down their original subreddits. Less things to see on reddit means less traffic, less things to see, less ad revenue, less odds for the website to survive. The proper way to have a good ol’ fashioned mutiny.

    Dunno where else to drop it, so I’ll put it here: props to you for using this opportunity to finally “fix” the name from dndmemes to general rpgmemes. Lord knows that debate went on for years longer than it should’ve
