We're the most active sub I follow, and many subs I'm in are totally dead due to lack of participation. But these are a handful of my favorites to peek in on outside of here:

s/drama (dead since SaidIt isn't really best for them, go offsite to instead)
s/SaidIt (to stay informed on the state of the site)
s/TumblrInAction (new sub, TiA is in their death throes on Reddit and is abandoning ship!)

Occasionally, I'll also just go browse s/all and sort by New, see what comes up and if there's any new subs or topics I may be interested in.

I mostly just come here, but I joined s/TumblrInAction today since the Reddit version is about to be banned.

Reddit is making this site pretty popular lol.

Only s/Bisexuals. We're accepted here but it's not a place I would expect to find a lot that I would want to participate in, given the right-wing leanings of much of it. That doesn't stop me from visiting regularly, though. It's easy enough to stop by, interact here, and then close the window when done. I don't need it to be a one-stop location for everything I care about, this one thing is plenty.

TIL that I subscribe to 255 subs here. A small sampling of my favorites:

s/Introductions (tbh most of the posts are fake, but they're hilarious anyway)

Besides those, there's a lot of fringe stuff here that's fun to explore.

Bet you have an older account that auto-subscribed to subs upon creation? Mine was that way originally too. They did eventually change that to make it opt-in instead, so at least new user accounts don't deal with that.

If anyone wants to check their own, go here:

That is a good bet, but I'm actually just a glutton for information with a fear of missing out. I subscribe to everything unless it's boring or intolerably offensive.

Haha, I totally understand FOMO. 255 subs though, holy crap!

Anything you would recommend as a side-interest or hobby that users may not even realize a sub exists for it yet?

I'm finding this question surprisingly hard to answer, probably because most of my saidit subscriptions are motivated by curiosity rather than personal passion. Subs I've stumbled across like s/200acres, s/BPF, s/Hail_Mary, s/LeftHandPath, s/Prohibition and s/sacredgeometry, for example, I followed just because they provide a glimpse into rooms that are otherwise closed or invisible to me, not necessarily because their content is particularly resonant. I just like browsing unusual shit and saidit is good for that - even the dead subs often have interesting archives.

I would encourage everyone here to visit the s/DecentralizeAllThings wiki because as we all know from experience, it's vital to have backup plans in an age of top-down censorship. I'd also encourage this group to check out s/ShillWall, or at very least this excellent post because while saidit is the chillest forum I know of and most of the people here are friendly, there are agent provocateurs who are here to disrupt it, and I think it's important to be able to recognize their bag of tricks.

I usually check Saidit maybe once a day, and only this sub. I'll probably join the TiA sub here and check on that, too, once TiA inevitably gets banned from Reddit - I'm surprised it managed to hold out as long as it did.
