Thanks for keeping it alive here, will be using this as my go-to for now until something happens to the main sub.

Yup, champion for doing this.

As a note, if saidit is ever compromised, dread on the deepweb also has a strong piracy sub and considering the various drug subs there and the fact that they have even already moved once due to the slightest whiff of a potential compromise, means they are pretty on the ball

That said, holy shit I hope saidit never goes the way of Reddit

Saidit will eventually become compromised. It may very well be the next Reddit, of course I thought the same thing about Voat and look what that turned into. It seems to be the natural life cycle of social media sites: they start off small with a very close community, slowly it grows and grows and becomes more diverse with more content being created, eventually it goes mainstream where its owners sell it to the highest bidder and attempt to monetize it which inevitably means they have to scrub it. The same thing happened to Digg that is happening to Reddit, right down to the awful redesign. I have only been here a little bit and I like the feel so far. I really do want Saidit to succeed but we as the users, no matter how vigilant, have almost no power over the site and the course it takes. The best we can do is pull up stakes and find a new site to call home for a while.

Unless decentralization can save us.

any decentralized alternatives you know of?

Not specifically yet.

NotABug is working on it and they are a fork of the same original old open-Reddit code as SaidIt.

Completely agree

Seems to be all backed up on the Raddle forum.

Thanks for all the hard work in migrating helpful resources guys.

If possible, create a backup site on I2P or TOR. Clearnet sites will get DMCA'd sooner or later. The MAFIAA has the money to bully smaller sites.

I know I'm a month late, but there are wikis available on SaidIt to post stuff. Failing that I can post things on InfoGalactic for us.

[–]betacollector64[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Yea there is. I just haven't made it public yet

[–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Why is that and when will it be made public?
