Reddit Migration


is this place pretty much dead already, or am i not doing something right? 95% of what i see is xanax pill spambot posts. got tired of blocking them after about the 10th one


Recent NPR article on Reddit's IPO -- I strongly suggest you give it a listen. I won't say anything other than I found myself angry enough to provide a bit of feedback and links to evidence refuting some of the worst misrepresentations.


Why wouldn’t you go into specifics? This comes off as clickbait: “Mastodon user FURIOUS about this one thing; click for details!”


I could care less about Reddit honestly. Also NPR isn’t exactly bias free when it comes to reporting.


It is still early enough in the that or can easily be replaced if something superior comes along. So if or can develop their consumer facing products better and faster then they will inevitably get the community support. And since sublinks uses the existing Lemmy API it might have the best chance to do so.

You never know, the current Lemmy devs might be pushed aside tomorrow, anything could happen.

@ecksearoh the even better prospect is that with all these platforms with group threads with voting systems, there will be even better standard tooling, transferability, apps, and discovery ecosystems that work across all the federating platforms.

OK so #Reddit search has always sucked.
It has sucked especially in the New Reddit era.
Now, they have deployed the Even Newer Reddit user interface.

One of my biggest use cases of Reddit was "what are people in various communities talking about this particular video"?

In Old.Reddit, you could at least see crossposts in the unlikely case that the YouTube URL was somehow equivalent to the actual URL posted to Reddit. You know, because YouTube videos could be called upon by many requests, and Reddit fucking gave no shit about any URL normalisation.

But they at least let you see if anyone had crossposted shit.

Apparently, the New New User Interface fucking doesn't even let you do that. I tried searching for a particular video that was already posted in particular communities. Nothing.
Tried Google Search to find this particular thing. OK, found it.
Slapped "old." to it. "6 discussions."
That's it. Reddit was already shit at finding discussions about particular YouTube videos if you didn't use old.reddit. The new Reddit interface at least pretended the crossposts were there. Crossposts no longer are there. Why the fuck do people even follow the site any more.


My issue is on Mobile is the past is long as hell breaking down the mechanics of something I can’t even view the full thing and I refuse to use the app. I’ve tried tapping scrolling and other things too.

Unfortunately, that's where all the content is. Things like this don't bother a lot of people — for example, discussion about YT videos wasn't something I ever used Reddit for — and as long as Reddit is the only platform providing what they're interested in, they're going to stay.

Step 3 of my evil plan regarding #fediverser and the #redditmigration has been executed. Anyone with a reddit account can go to to claim their account at the #lemmy instance, and when they do so it gives you a list of your current reddit subscriptions and recommends the corresponding lemmy community.

Now, on to build and extend the lemmy communities so that we have more recommendations to make.

This is awesome.
I wonder if some of the r/antkeeping people might come over...

raphael, avatar


Yes, absolutely! In fact, it seems that this subreddit is a good candidate to try implementing the strategy that I described on


The Unofficial Kbin Guide is now available!
Let me know of any feedback, update requests, or corrections.


@niktemadur See

Basically, there is no native way to do this. You have to use an extension like uBlock Origin's Element Zapper.


Ah! Thank you for the reply! That way I’m not on a wild goose Settings chase.


How do you mod in Kbin?
I can't find any tools for modding?

@OvergrownSkeleton more > moderate

The magazine also has its own panel, available if you are the owner.

TheArstaInventor avatar

@ernest Should be available for all moderators, owners should atleast have an optional option to enable that.

And what happened to the requesting subs function? When is that coming out?



a few thousand people coming together to make the entirety of r/place say "FUCK SPEZ" at the end is insane but we all know they're just gonna go back to using reddit in like 20 minutes

It's like that ex partner that they're never over. Always talking of them. Always thinking of them. Always finding a reason to wind up back to them.

I made a Magazine called Photobiomodulation ( for the discussion of this topic on the Fediverse. I've left Reddit behind, and am recreating this community here.


post it in !newcommunities

spaduf, avatar

Throw it over on !newcommunities if you haven’t already


So I finally deleted all my posts and my account and ditched Reddit. Now I need a new place.

Any suggestions?

You can follow from your fedi account but it doesn't differentiate between posts and replies so they all appear in your feed. They should fix that, it'd be nice.

Reddit removes years of chat and message archives from users' accounts

You might be able to get a copy of older messages from the data retrieval request.

This is probably cost reduction. I know they have a significant amount of redis. That’s all in-memory database storage.


Way to keep the screw ups going Reddit. Loose all DM for everyone and blame it on a new infrastructure. Wow.


is anyone else exploring the wider fediverse?

I know of a few users who were originally from kbin/mastodon, I've heard some mentions of peertube, and I'm currently posting this from calckey.

@zn Vulcan did, years ago during first

Those platforms are and


Stumbled exploring fediverse (\ account interacting \ alternate universe).

Anyway, how to make everything visible to my this \ account? (From here, sleep walking into more alternate universe)


@RedditMigration Are you guys friends with your wife's boyfriends? Is there a forum for that here?

@RedditMigration @errante

Just regular 4chan/incel bullshit.


Just wanted to say that I love how people are using the upvote and downvote feature here as they don't seem to be used as agreement/disagreement but rather valuable or hindering to the conversation.

I really feel like I can express any opinion on here and start controversial discussions as long as I'm not malicious to anyone.
Disagreements are mostly stated in replies which promotes conversation and growth. There is currently no reason to be scared about being wrong.
I hope that this is not just a product of the smaller userbase compared to reddit but rather how upvotes/downvotes/boosts are laid out to the user.

Reddit account.....deleted. Kbin seems to have a better "signal to noise" ratio IYKWIM


@Reddog @jkmooney He used to hang out at one of my favorite bars. Never had the opportunity to see him there though.


@selzero @jkmooney I had many an entertaining evening in the company Lemmy.
