Admin here. Thanks for the support! We're hosting with a smaller well known web host, are not dependent on any cloud services, and can easily relocate/rehost the site if need be.

Seconded. /u/magnora7 I think all we need for a canary is a "Warrant Canary" post on /s/SaidIt where we specify a last edited date, and a "Canary" link to it in the footer. Of course there's the hassle of updating it weekly or monthly or quarterly.

Here's some sample canaries:

For starters, there's no downvote here so content can't be buried. And brigading/vote manipulation will not be allowed. Past that, we're open to ideas. Maybe we'll get strict about ips and rate limiting to prevent upvote bots. But this is an anonymous platform so I don't think there's a silver bullet.

Unrelated to vote manipulation, we have thought about a system where sub users can vote to kick out corrupted mods.

Way cool. For anyone else out of the loop:

As we speculated previously, Valve have now officially announced their new version of 'Steam Play' for Linux gaming using a modified distribution of Wine called Proton, which is available on GitHub. What does it do? In short: it allows you to play Windows games on Linux, directly through the Steam client as if they were a Linux game.

Nice I was just about to post this one. So Reddit basically has the same censorship partnerships as Google and Facebook. This is the nail in their coffin, we'll see how long it takes to play out over at Digg2.

Fahrenheit 2018: Amazon Begins Banning Controversial Books by useless_aether in censorship

They've been banning controversial WWII books for years, even non holocaust denier ones. There's a list of about 100 banned books floating around.

These sound pretty good. So it's about giving every sub a fair shake and not letting popular subs overwhelm hot and new and top, on /s/home * and /s/all and /s/subscribed ? For the time range, it could use the "links from" filtering, and you could pick "past 24 hours".

Nice! It looks like you didn't get much of a response about the backup part. I know I've seen a few github projects that were about "archiving reddit", so let me see what I can find.

It looks like pushshift has all reddit data and even an API to get at it. I guess it's aimed at academic researchers (or Fed bot writers) and sounds kind of stable/has been around for a while edit: but they are also having funding problems. I don't know how this project exists, it seems like reddit copyright infringement. It could go away someday but I imagine there are some backups floating around or there would be if they folded.

https://files.pushshift.io/reddit/submissions/

https://www.reddit.com/r/pushshift/

So the data isn't really usable or browseable right now. I could see writing a little script that gets API data and spits out html pages for each post, and then it could make an index page with titles and links off to the posts. Then it could be hosted and accessed on github like a normal website. So it would be like an offline friendly reddit mirror. But it all kind of falls apart at wanting to search for posts in this archive viewer. If you get into needing a server to use the damn thing it's a huge burden.

Maybe another idea would be to just download all of the pushshift data for /r/conspiracy only, maybe a couple of others, and make a torrents out of them. It would be less work, especially if no one really cares- yet.

There's no policy. Automated submissions are frowned upon.

Cool. I have no idea how to do it either but I wanted to see if it's worthwhile before spending time on it. I'll dig around for a workable approach.

Hey man this banout stuff has me worried that /r/conspiracy might get the axe sooner rather than later. Do you think it would be worthwhile to try to back it up? I know there's some great posts on there from the last decade that eveyone can learn from.

We could at least get the top 1000 posts from all time, and maybe more with keywords using reddit search. Maybe getting self posts only would help thin it out a bit.

Maybe there's something already out there. I don't know how much historical data ceddit and the like store.
