>>406747 I have an account but I hardly post. I only go on small (kinda) subs like /r/emulation, /r/vaporwave, /r/dota2, /r/jailbreak. Default subs are absolute fucking cancer. Reddit is ok as a link aggregator but the upvote/downvote shit fucks up comments, creating circlejerks and a situation where people are afraid to speak their mind if it goes against the majority or face being hit by a ton of downvotes. It's the reason why reddit is such a piece of shit.
I hate /pol/ but /pol/ is a thousand times better than /r/news and /r/worldnews, people on reddit are such edgelords.
>>406955 I'd also like to add that /r/dota2 is a piece of crap sub, the users such Valve's dick and never fail to praise Icefrog when he puts out a shitty patch. It's full of assholes, I only go there for the patch notes analysis threads. >>>/vg/d2g is much better
Don't have one. The UI of every aggregate site always looks like total shit with Reddit being the king of all aggregate sites. Though I do use it for yugioh and GTAO glitches when the respective generals on 4chan are shit.
>>406747 I have a reddit account. I spend most of my time answering questions and helping people. Occasionally I spew nihilistic "nothing you say matters" to people with political affiliations other than directly in the centre when I'm in a sour mood.
>>406955 I always assumed most people did what I did where if you have a bunch of upvote karma you can afford to make some shit posts, so that just means that more than half of your posts need to be good to help fuel the shitpost engine. Half my posts that receive any votes at all are downvoted and that's the way I like it. I never dip below 0 karma and everything's fine.
Way back when (like in 2000) I used to post regularly on Fark. When Reddit was made they partnered with Fark which was bigger and more popular at the time. Reddit hit some financial problems and was about to shut down but Fark threw a fundraiser that literally saved Reddit from going defunct. At that time I made an account to check out their site. Anyway, Fark soon regretted helping Reddit as they eclipsed Fark and siphoned away a lot of their users. Farkers routinely tell people to go back to reddit. I never particularly cared for reddit because their format is retarded. Why the fuck would anyone want to read replies based on how many votes it got? It's highly disjointed; comments should always be listed in chronological order otherwise the conversation doesn't make sense.
>>408004 Most people who have been on there a while arrange their view of things (submissions and comments) in chronological order instead of by popularity as is the default. That way it all but bypasses the karma system and you see things with 0 karma that you wouldn't otherwise.
I have a Reddit account. Smaller subreddits aren't even bad and could easily be compared to generals with multiple, specific topics. They're very useful as a news source if there exists no other place where a specific topic gets constant news updates. Great for videogame franchises.
Any subreddit with more than 2000 subscribers is an instant plummet to garbage quality on par with /b/, though. I'm currently permbanned from about 9 subreddits. In the end, the only purpose of my Reddit account is the same as this (>>406972) Anon, but I do sometimes post helpful content on those very small subreddits.
>>407545 You can change that in account settings so that everything opens in a new tab.
nope, never made an account or posted due to the nature of the site. upboats = attention whoring and accounts take muh anons away which is something I take very seriously(inb4 leegun, i mean staying anon online in general).
>>408387 Not him but they're literally just points for e-peen that you get if your post is popular. Nothing particularly complex about it. Means about as much as the points in Whose Line is it Anyway but people like seeing a large number on their account because it gives 'em a big dick.
>>408414 It's a site for fucking blogs and image hosting. Calling it "decent" makes you look like that kid leaning against a wall smoking a cigarette except it's actually a twig. You want to look cool and dismissive but nobody cares.
>>408387 When you get upvotes and downvotes it keeps score. That score is called "Karma". These points were originally called "cReddit" but that was quickly abandoned as retarded.
If you and another person have the exact same score on a comment, then the one with the higher user karma score is higher. If your user karma score is negative, then it automatically falls at the bottom of posts. Your post can still be seen by people, especially if their settings list posts in chronological order, rather than by "Best" (with "Best" being the default) but usually you'll only run into people looking to pick fights with downvoted posts.
And if you're downvoted, that's probably because you too were looking to pick fights so the system works.
>>408479 I should note the "with the same score" really only matters for comments with absolutely no upvotes and downvotes. Even a single upvote will make a comment from a user with -9999999999 karma be listed above a person with +999999999 score.
When two users with the same karma score and the same comment score are posted, the one posted first is on top.
I do have a Reddit account, but I've only made like 4 posts. I can't say for sure that the discussion is any more or less full of shitposting on either Reddit or 4chan.
On both sites, the most serious discussions take place in the general life improvement subforums and I typically only read the FAQs and guides. For me that's /fit/ here, and various obscure subrebbits like /r/haircarescience and /r/wicked_edge
>>408489 No one likes faggots on here. And your post just proved your probably underage and defiantly from Reddit. Hence why I said go back to where you belong where you can have your so called "serious discussions". better yet I think r/4chan would be perfect for you
>>408494 You have down syndrome if you don't think someone is capable of browsing 2 different sites at once. Just because you say go back to whatever and throw a tantrum doesn't mean anyone is going to. Unless you can find a way to physically remove me from the site, I'm going to be here forever, so deal with it fuccboi!
Some subreddits are okay based on certain content.
For /r/news and /r/worldnews, breaking news is quickly voted up.
Advice: Never, ever browse /r/funny, /r/atheism, /r/4chan and /r/cringe. They are cancer. Relatively okay major subs are /r/LifeProTips, /r/todayilearned and /r/mildlyinteresting. Stick to subs with low subscriber counts. There is an inverse ratio between the quality of a sub and the amount of subscribers.
>>409241 objectively the only decent place on the site is r/badphilosophy as it's the only r/bad___ sub or meta sub that's not filled with fedoras or legbeards and manages to be an almost complete circlejerk it's like [esfores] but with philosophy rather than postironic niceness
