First I must say I’m impressed by the post editor.
One problem with Reddit is the ability for bots and people to censor or harass/stalk and manipulate what appears as popular. All they need to is to upvote or downvote based on the name of the poster.
This leads to problems such as original good content posted being downvoted but reposts being upvoted. Because of people who do not like your opinion stalking you.
I think I have a very good idea for how to prevent this.
If a posters name could be hidden for a day or more than it would not be possible for users to simply downvote or upvote a post based on the posters name. That would make post manipulation much more difficult.
It would increase the probability a lot that the votes are not simply based on the name of the poster.
I suggested this to reddit years ago, but they ignored it.
I think lemmy could really gain tracktion if it protected users from vote manipulation more than reddit.
I also do think that it is a serious concern that anyone can see a users post and comment history. Even though this work both ways. It can also help people detect trolls by looking at the users previous posts.
So hiding the post history perhaps ought to be limited somehow.
If possible I’m willing to support the development a little of those features. Especially the first.
