What about folks like me who like to file things topically in dedicated topical subs?

Would you have a maximum sub limit?

What if I can't moderate all the subs?

Whether many or few subs, what if I simply don't want to moderate anything?

Metatags would certainly help with topical labeling.

What's wrong with SaiditIt? Is it stagnating and cannot be contributed to?

he wants to do a free speech clone of here

Sure, but how exactly. Sidebar says:

free speech and subs controlled by mods

How would that be different? What's not free speech on SaidIt?

I know python and could possibly contribute, but I would have many questions.

I'm not sure what all his master plan is, I just volunteered to help him use this code. I think he has some bug fix ideas and some changes/features ideas.

What's not free speech on SaidIt?

Probably the no advocating violence rule.

Hmm, well that is against the law in most places. You can rest assured it will be monitored by gov. agencies. I don't think there is a workaround there.

It is against the rules here to praise God for wiping out Sodom and Gomorrah since that is considered glorifying violence. d3rr has been fairly relaxed, so SaidIt has been okay recently. But magnora7 implemented harsh censorship here (like this) when he was active, and this is his site. If he comes back to being an active admin, SaidIt will become unusable.

I see, well would there be no modding at all? That is probably not going to work. If there will be mods, how would they be checked?

[–]fschmidt[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (12 children)

Unlike SaidIt, mods would have total control over their subs. Why do mods need to be checked?

Why do mods need to be checked?

How would you prevent another mod from abusing powers? Is there going to be no global moderation? There's going to be horrible subs, and probaby taken over by porn or trolls.

Porn won't be allowed. There will be some horrible subs but you can mute them. For me, most subs are horrible anyway. I discussed how to avoid offending normal users here. With this system, I don't care if there are troll subs or other horrible subs.

Well I'm just happy that he's interested in a spin off. The code is stagnating here. It's python 2 deprecation hell.

I'm still working on this OP. Some dependencies got removed from the internet which is terrifying but surmountable.

Thanks, and no rush because it would be better if I found another Python programmer before launch. Also I would appreciate it if you could avoid upgrading any software you use - Python, libs, whatever. Everything only gets worse these days because it is being modified by modern scum.

Update: I overcame some legacy/deprecation issues and feel good about the fixes and the stability. Some SJW ubuntu guy withdrew his popular ubuntu 14 ppa which messed everything up.

I will now jump back into the Docker port and get this turd polished up asap. I'm just updating you because I said 2 weeks, and it has been 3 or so. Anyway I am staying the course.

I agree about more people. Please please come work with us. Code for freedom for once.

Would it be of any help if I found some local (Windsor) help?

Obviously you'd still have to double check all work, from here or anywhere else.

Also, I'm trying to line up a fiber line and a few boxes to dedicate as servers and NAS (and potentially for rendering in the future).
