No probs!

The reddit redesign is so terrible that its one of the things that made me wanna start working on this. Its gone the typical way of most huge sites, with tons of tracky javascript and a bloated UI. And the ads are pretty gross too.

There’s nothing really super complicated about what reddit does either… its just a forum with sorting and threaded comments. So not having some tracky-site, and being piracy friendly, are some goals for this. Plus I wanted to learn / get better at rust.

I really think a forum should at least display without JavaScript for anonymity and security reasons, and in the spirit of open access to information. We should also try to get Lemmy to work with this configuration.

I might try to tackle making the site isomorphic again in the future, but the websockets and multilingual support make it very difficult.

No probs. Ya stuff like the old vote counts showing ups and downs that Reddit took away.

I think this could add some potentially cooler things, but the overall ideas of posts, subs, and threaded comments are staying.

it’s centralized and partly censored

To say “partly” is a generous understatement. Have a look at c/censorship_reddit to see the kinds of posts being censored. Usually you don’t have to break any rules or make an uncivil comment – you just have to post a fact or opinion that doesn’t align with a mod’s view of the world.

And the method of censorship: “shadow banning” is good reason alone to ditch that corrupt shithole. Robots can easily know when they’re censored because they can check a cookieless session to see if their post appears. Shadow banning is an attack on humans, designed to deceive the public about who the low-integrity moderators are, which in turn stimulates the proliferation of corrupt moderators.

If I ever find that Lemmy is capable of shadow banning, I’m gone.

it’s … partly censored I’m new. What are some things you can’t say on Reddit that you can here.
