Full gif support is on our list. Maybe we'll support svg too but that's harder because they can have embedded javascript that needs to be stripped/sanitized. Svg isn't supported in a lot of systems because of this.

Thanks man. Yeah the regex UUID matching kinda rubbed me wrong, but luckily a friendly user here encouraged me to push on through https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/bkw/could_we_have_peertube_oneboxing_like_youtube/mdr

Go PeerTube!

That /r/conspiracy post where I volunteered to help magnora was the start of SaidIt. He had a bunch of ideas all cooked up, but there was no tech or anything written down or anything. So since the beginning.

SaidIt's API is how that bot can post here and how the RedReader android app can log you in here and let you make posts, etc. We basically have all of this setup and working: https://www.reddit.com/dev/api/

I know, but why were you considering it?

I can't remember if it was because the site was so dead, or if magnora wanted a particular sub mirrored over here because he liked it, or if it was gonna be general news content to balance out all of the conspiracy/politics content. we didn't consider it much at all.

that's just us though, we've had the API up and going the whole time and there's no site policy about it, so bot away as far as i'm concerned.

I'd like a bot to auto-share a select group of YouTube channels

Doable, especially if it's posting to your sub or a sub you won't get marked as spam in.

It exists, here's one: https://github.com/jariz/ChannelBot

What do you mean "automated content posting"?

Software/bots making saidit posts/links and comments on some kind of schedule, or like posting everything on a list of links they are given.

And was that just for starting out, before the numbers?

We never did it

Would it be possible to make a bot to copypaste everything in chat to a sub feed?

SaidIt could do it if people wanted it. Right now there's no external IRC access or chat related stuff in the SaidIt/Reddit API.

Sharing: Is there such a thing for SaidIt?

Not really, Said it isn't big enough to be included in the sharing widgets. The site does support easy incoming share links tho, using the same url format as reddit.

I added SaidIt to a browser social sharing extension once though that supported adding custom urls, forget the name but it worked fine. I'll try to dig up the name it sounds like you might like it.

Suspected bot*

Previously known as:

I think it's a well intentioned bot, but some of the stories are so old that the titles become misleading.

Don't feel guilty about 10,000 edits. I think everyone is trying to help you boost your CSS skills, but no pressure. The mod logs have filtering in place to not show all ya CSS edits.

I don't know a ton about Reddit bots, but yeah I think you can do whatever with them. We have at least one bot that's a frequent contributor here.

Yeah we considered automated content posting when we first started, but we made /s/all the home page instead and that seems to have worked out well. Thanks for checking out the site.

It's doable but the content would have to be posted slowly to avoid Saidit's rate limiting restrictions.

I donno, it opens the door to mod retaliation for an "invalid" report, but it is more transparency. If mods started banning for invalid reports that'd be a problem.

RES for saidit - supports Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and Edge by magnora7 in SaidIt

[–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I'll give it a test. It might act weird if it's installed in developer mode and not as an official extension.

Edit: yep, since the extension isn't officially released, you can only load it temporarily until you shut down. If you are into RES and want to use it, we can prioritize getting RES for SaidIt released properly.

There hasn't been much interest in RES so it's been on the backburner. The long term goal is to build RES features into the site directly, like how we have image expandos in comments now. What do you want to use the most from RES?

Here's a modlog of 40 subs at once, I wonder how many it could do, yeah maybe all of them.

Anyway if we need a proper whole site modlog I'm sure we could figure it out.

Crimes of Britain - a platform that was set up in 2015 dedicated to monitoring British imperialism of the present day and revisiting it of the past.

Here's a video about anti-Zionist Jews which shows that 'Jews' are in no ways a cohesive singular group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKplabTRuak

Here's some cool Jew activists protesting at AIPAC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpt2R8tkPCg

If you just use 'Zionists' instead you will be more accurate and your messages will be better received. It is some PC bullshit maybe but this is 2019 and that is the only way you will reach people, if that's what you're even trying to do. Even Henry Ford used a qualifier 'international' Jew.

The reporting is intentionally anonymous, probably to remove moderator bias when making the spam or not decision. But yeah if reporting is being abused then there would be value in being able to know who is abusing it. Maybe mods just need a 'report reporting abuse to admins' link.
