lmao this name is brilliant

Isn't it?! I am continually inspired by the wit and creativity of GC women. I can't wait for merch lol.

[–]Happy_face_caller 53 insightful - 5 fun53 insightful - 4 fun54 insightful - 5 fun -  (6 children)

Well done! That was fast

Am I the only one enjoying the saidit? It’s been great I think lol

[–]MenAreFragileBabies 72 insightful - 25 fun72 insightful - 24 fun73 insightful - 25 fun -  (1 child)

I like the no downvotes feature, but I cannot stand having to deal with these psycho men on here.

Although apparently my username has gotten under their skin, which makes me smile lol

[–]Happy_face_caller 21 insightful - 3 fun21 insightful - 2 fun22 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah they are really immature and aggressive, even more than Reddit surprisingly. There are just less of them so far

[–]flapyourwings[S] 41 insightful - 1 fun41 insightful - 0 fun42 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

We love Saidit and a ton of work went into and continues to go into the creation and maintenance of this space! The mods here are awesome.

[–]Happy_face_caller 14 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 0 fun15 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

You can tell much work was and is being done here. I’m really enjoying it

[–]MadLass 39 insightful - 3 fun39 insightful - 2 fun40 insightful - 3 fun -  (12 children)

I feel like this is a good move but Im also worried about it splintering us even more. After reddit it sorta diverged to spinster, twitter, or here on saidit. I also like a place I can still access lbgdropthet and any of the dude voices who wouldnt be welcome on ovarit. Anyway didnt mean to be a downer Im still sad about the loss of our numbers on reddit and the other communities that didnt seem to make it.

[–]flapyourwings[S] 40 insightful - 2 fun40 insightful - 1 fun41 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

We have Spinster for folks who like the more Twitter format, and Saidit was kind of a place for those of us who like link aggregator sites to land. Ovarit works in much the same way as Saidit and Reddit, BUT there are no ads, no porn, and it is created and run by radical feminists. We will be adding more communities in the future but right now we're just working on getting everyone on board the ship!

[–]MadLass 21 insightful - 2 fun21 insightful - 1 fun22 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Thank you for your quick work on it! Eventually id love to make a femalefashion sub on there or here for anyone else so inclined. I miss talking about that stuff. 😫

[–]AugustiJade 22 insightful - 2 fun22 insightful - 1 fun23 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I was hoping for the same when I migrated to SaidIt, but it seems like the majority of this platform is incelly racist men. A new feminist platform will be nice.

[–]AngryRadish 10 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 0 fun11 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

That's amazing! I can't believe how quickly this is happening.

[–][deleted] 28 insightful - 2 fun28 insightful - 1 fun29 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

Splintering makes is harder to obliterate us. I think having a central Reddit location was wrong. It made it easy for them to take us down. If we are everywhere they can’t shut us up as easily.

[–]Marsupial 17 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 0 fun18 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I'm worried about lack of growth when it's invite-only. The good thing about GC on Reddit was that it was easy to find for anybody who'd peaked and just googled something related. Invite only is more work, more waiting and at least I would be a bit hesitant about it if I was new to the scene.

[–][deleted] 10 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 0 fun11 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah true. But as easy it was to find the community, it was that easy to destroy it. Kind of like killing the mother ship if everything else is a drone. In computers, robust systems use clones or nodes that have copies in different locations. Should something happen to one location, the others have a copy and it is easy to restore the other node. We need to be similar. Spread across different platforms. I mean if they want to get rid of us, we should make them work for it. We were just sitting ducks last time.

[–]Realwoman 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Is the invited only stage temporary? I thought so, I might be wrong

[–]flapyourwings[S] 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

We will likely open registration without invite codes in the near future. Just trying to keep track of who is coming from where right now since we JUST launched.

[–]suzyquattrosshoes 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The fact that an email is required might be a barrier for some who are privacy-minded. I created a new email to join but some might worry about even that, I’m thinking

[–]Mr_Dork 35 insightful - 2 fun35 insightful - 1 fun36 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

I'm really glad y'all found a new home where you won't be censored or banned.

I miss the debate sub. I just wanted to say congrats and good luck and thanks for your hard work on the sub I spent so much time on. (If this isn't the place for this, plz delete)

[–]flapyourwings[S] 20 insightful - 3 fun20 insightful - 2 fun21 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

You're totally welcome if you want to join, Dork! I know Saidit Debate is pretty sleepy by comparison.

[–]womenopausal 33 insightful - 2 fun33 insightful - 1 fun34 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

We should have a link somewhere

Come and see how lovely it looks!

[–]flapyourwings[S] 16 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thank you! I got too excited and forgot this very important piece - a link!

[–]Bogos 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Wow, best platform yet!!

[–]RevengeOfTheCis 30 insightful - 2 fun30 insightful - 1 fun31 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

AHHHH YES!!! Thank you! We love you!!! I'm already "ovar" saidit, too, so this is great timing!

ETA: I fucking LOVE the name and logo so much, you gynes are so amazing and creative.

[–]Moirawr 23 insightful - 2 fun23 insightful - 1 fun24 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I’m so happy!!!!!! Thank you!

Quick question: will we eventually have off topic circles not related to feminism, like a place where people can post their pets and talk about video games, like a replacement reddit or nah?

[–]flapyourwings[S] 21 insightful - 1 fun21 insightful - 0 fun22 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yes, that is definitely on the horizon! Right now the focus is bringing over subs that got destroyed in the Reddit bans with the help of those moderators, then we can expand.

[–]FuriousPenguin 20 insightful - 2 fun20 insightful - 1 fun21 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

Are we no longer using saidit?

[–]flapyourwings[S] 56 insightful - 1 fun56 insightful - 0 fun57 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

You guys can absolutely still use Saidit. Ovarit is also a link aggregator like this site and Reddit, but it's created and run by former GC mods, no ads, no porn, no edgelord dudes.

[–]FuriousPenguin 19 insightful - 1 fun19 insightful - 0 fun20 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Brilliant. Thank you.

[–]yishengqingwa666 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Stoked about this. Dudes are a waste of time.

[–]weirdthorn 32 insightful - 1 fun32 insightful - 0 fun33 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

We can always double-submit in both places. Also, for this place to persist long-time against reddit it needs a variety of opinions, which also leads to a wider exposure of gc-material.

[–]MenAreFragileBabies 18 insightful - 4 fun18 insightful - 3 fun19 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

OMG I was just about to give up on saidit!!! Too many loons here. Hooray 🎉!

[–]Bogos 17 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Yeah it’s not exactly pleasant to be exposed to the front page. Though I appreciate the sites lack of censorship, I rather not be in the company of Nazis.

[–][deleted] 15 insightful - 3 fun15 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I unsubscribed from all the other subs, that you get subscribed to automatically, and now I don't have to see any of that stuff.

[–]weirdthorn 10 insightful - 2 fun10 insightful - 1 fun11 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

If you use "all" there is a button to "mute sub" under each link.

[–][deleted] 14 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

Terrific name! Thanks for all the work to create a space for us, both here and the website.

[–]jkfinn 13 insightful - 3 fun13 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

It’s too bad that the intro to something so political, democratic, and communal has to half-speak in computereze. I have no clue as to what’s being said in this regard and thus have zero input. So, I guess it’s just put the plate on the table and I’ll talk. (I do Latin and Greek tho but promise to speak in english)

Just sent a Pm (I hope). Looking forward to Ovarit. I love GC but I’m not entirely sure on other parts of Said it.

Please, I would like the code, but how do I PM you? For some reason, this site is not as intuitive as some. Thanks! I did pick a different name here, but I'm front the reddit site.

[–]Anon123 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Just a heads up, I would change that banner if I was you. I thought the site was www.weareovarit.com at first. For clarity, I would make the "we are" really small print and underline the ovarit.com part to distinguish it from the other text.

[–]Hard_headed_woman 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I would really appreciate an invite code.

This is literally my first time commenting on saidit because after looking around for the little bit of time I've been here, I'm horrified by the amount of racists and generally just awful people who have migrated here and I'm not interested in staying.

[–]sleepyzero 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

May I get an invite code? I'm not sure how to dm here. Sorry, I feel sort of silly, it might be that I'm using this on mobile.

[–]feministunderyrbed 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I’m on mobile too, and it took me a minute to figure it out. Copy the username of the person you want to pm, just the username not the link, and go to your mailbox (the envelope next to your name). You’ll see a tab for “send private message”. Click that and you’re off.

[–]worried19 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

Was Ovarit attacked? I've been trying to visit the site and all I get is "internal server error."

[–]PenguinAuntie 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm getting the error, too.

Edit: it seems to be working again!

[–]k_rivvers 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Looks like it's back up, may just be a blip

Not that I'm aware of. I know we're throwing a lot of 404s today; our tech team is on it.

I'm so happy it's finally here! I can't wait to get back into things, it's been way too long since I've had decent discussions. I'm so proud of how far everyone has come and what an impact we're making. The name is also quite fitting, haha.

Once I figure out how this stuff works I'll definitely PM! Seriously, I can't wait!

[–]Salemsister 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Can I have an invite please? Just deleted reddit, since not only the gendercritical subs are gone but it's overall going to shit. And I'm feeling so effing lonely because I can't even mention anything about feminism irl or with my "friends" without being called a Terf. Fuck that.
