Recent NPR article on Reddit's IPO -- I strongly suggest you give it a listen. I won't say anything other than I found myself angry enough to provide a bit of feedback and links to evidence refuting some of the worst misrepresentations.

Where am I?
Is this the ? What is the ? How do I ? Am I ? Do I ? Deja-vu with the ?

Hi there👋
This is a good place to be!
My thread here condenses the key learning I've made so far about Fediverse, in case it helps others.

I should write an introduction post! Pin it to my profile maybe!

Include lots of hashtags, especially + for things I talk about or am I interested in, so people can find me too.

OK so search has always sucked.
It has sucked especially in the New Reddit era.
Now, they have deployed the Even Newer Reddit user interface.

One of my biggest use cases of Reddit was "what are people in various communities talking about this particular video"?

In Old.Reddit, you could at least see crossposts in the unlikely case that the YouTube URL was somehow equivalent to the actual URL posted to Reddit. You know, because YouTube videos could be called upon by many requests, and Reddit fucking gave no shit about any URL normalisation.

But they at least let you see if anyone had crossposted shit.

Apparently, the New New User Interface fucking doesn't even let you do that. I tried searching for a particular video that was already posted in particular communities. Nothing.
Tried Google Search to find this particular thing. OK, found it.
Slapped "old." to it. "6 discussions."
That's it. Reddit was already shit at finding discussions about particular YouTube videos if you didn't use old.reddit. The new Reddit interface at least pretended the crossposts were there. Crossposts no longer are there. Why the fuck do people even follow the site any more.

Wow , thanks for the help! I am genuinely surprised at how close the results were. It looks like the recommendation is to try out the ( and / or ) first - but only by 1.8% over ! Y'all must know that I've been getting frustrated with lately. I also appreciate the recommendations for other things to explore.

Now the question is Kbin or Lemmy? Or both? (any thoughts?)

How do you mod in Kbin?
I can't find any tools for modding?

I made a Magazine called Photobiomodulation (https://kbin.social/m/photobiomodulation/) for the discussion of this topic on the Fediverse. I've left Reddit behind, and am recreating this community here.

Definitely fits under "alternative" lol. Where (if anywhere) does A.I. belong in music? Song drafts? Adding depth to your own work? Banned?

So I finally deleted all my posts and my account and ditched Reddit. Now I need a new place.

Any suggestions?

    Reddit removes years of chat and message archives from users' accounts

    You might be able to get a copy of older messages from the data retrieval request.

    is anyone else exploring the wider fediverse?

    I know of a few users who were originally from kbin/mastodon, I've heard some mentions of peertube, and I'm currently posting this from calckey.
