Deleting my Reddit comments was a strange experience. (kbin.social)

It wasn't the fact that there was a limit to see 1000 comments but what they were. The vast majority of my 12 years on Reddit I spent talking about dungeon and dragons 5th edition (DnD 5e) which I started playing early in is lifestyle. It was my first role playing game and I got sucked into the Internet to learn more. Before my...

This person has to hurt others to make themselves feel better, you’re best to just ignore.

My mod team and I are basically not doing any modding. Whatever was in place is still in place, about once a week I clean the mod queue. None of us really login anymore. It’ll eventually become a dumpster fire but so far, it’s not too terrible from what I can see. We used to all be on there checking the top posts and making sure they didn’t violate the rules but, not anymore.

Video games, crafts, reading, gardening

Things I enjoy despite the fact that I’m an introvert: racing, building racecars (it’s a whole ass thing with a bunch of people on our race team)

This is great advice. If you walk in somewhere with no real idea what you want and no research to back it up, you’re subject to the bull shit the sales person might tell you. They could also be 100% totally honest as well but, you have no way of knowing that. Do you research.

It was at a county fair grounds, friend of my significant other so I didn’t really know them. They had the ceremony in the arena where they show animals for judging during the fair. The brides dress and train got covered in dirt and sawdust. We all had to sit on bleachers, it was unfortunate and hot outside. They said some cheesy things to each other. Thought I was going to die of second hand embarrassment.

Reception was inside, no DJ, just a poorly chosen song mix. The meal was like a pot luck from the families. A few people ended up with food poisoning. I hardly ate anything and we left after an hour. I heard there was some trailer trash style drama between friends of the bride and friends if the groom after I left. This was 10 years ago, they’re still together. It does seem happily but again, I don’t know them well.

Just thought of a second one. Former best friend now just regular friend. Cheated on everyone they’ve been with with this dude. Dude has no job, no license, not good looking, leach on society type. Finally their relationships goes south and in comes my friend to rescue him. After a month they announce there engaged, 2 weeks later the wedding.

Wedding is in their apartment living room. Dude proceeds to get trashed and announce to anyone who will listen that he basically is going to use my friend, never planning on getting a license or a job, no goals, just wants to stay home and do nothing for the rest of his life. Keeps calling my friend by their exes name, can’t remember the vows, passes out drunk about an hour after the ceremony. Most cringe thing ever.

Friend tells anyone who will listen how happy they are to finally be with “the one that got away.” All while their life is going down hill fast.

So not just a bad wedding but a bad relationship. The wedding was so ungodly cringe.

How can I help a friend who is falling into "witchcraft"? (kbin.social)

I have this friend, N, that has recently started believing things very out of the ordinary. He said that he's been getting into paganism and studying runes and candles. I told him that was very interesting, it sounded like a fun time and a good hobby to have. N let me know that it wasn't just a hobby, but that it had a function...

I believe in science, I also practice witchcraft. Do I think anything I’m gonna make is going to help me? I mean, yeah due to legit science. But I also know when to go to a real doctor. Do I think runes and tarot cards can tell me the future? Not necessarily but I view it as more of a, it’s already in my head it’s just helping me spell it out type of thing.

I have no idea your age but, a lot of people dabble in witchcraft in their teens and early 20s and never come back to it. If I did my math right I’ve been practicing for 16 years. I’ve never used it as an excuse to not get mental health help, I’ve never used it as an excuse to not go to a doctor, and I’ve never forced my beliefs on others (which is more than some people in some religions can say).

I’m not saying your friend won’t use religion as an excuse to not do normal things but, I think you should take some time to look at things from another perspective. It’s really not much different than those who believe in an all powerful sky daddy. Not only that but, witchcraft can be secular as well.

    As I said before, sprog coming will make it official. It’s official now

    Is there any one else who feels like their life has been disrupted by this whole debacle with Reddit. (kbin.social)

    I really do like KBin and Lemmy and the fediverse on the whole, but development is still young and the userbase still growing. KBin is still basically early access, and Lemmy is buggy. I spent alot of time in reddit and I'm feeling the pain of trying to ween myself from it. Just wanted to here community perspectives and see how...

    I can’t relate but damn that sucks I’m sorry you’re dealing with this.

    Damn, what country are you in? I bought at the tail end of the 2008 crash. Things were still low but, coming back up. I think I’m at 4.5%

    My friends parents bought in 2007 and keep making terrible financial decisions so they can’t refinance. If I understood right their interest rate is 15% or something INSANE.

    Ohhh. Damn. Hope things get better

    What was the subreddit that represented to you the best example of downspiral of quality? To me it was /r/dataisbeautiful (kbin.social)

    At first it was all about presenting data in an original looking way. In the end it was about pushing political ideas in your throat using a plain bar graph. It was not about sharing something interesting you found but about taking advantage of a captive audience.

    @greatwhitebuffalo41@slrpnk.net avatar

    Is that what happened? I knew something had changed but I didn’t realize it I guess. It went from being a really fun sub to being so boring and the same shit every day.

    Ah yes, the first time I noticed this I was so happy. I mistype a lot. And don’t get my started on autocorrect.

    Same as you OP but, it was in my lady bits, not my mouth. Gotta love when glands don’t function properly and decide to get blocked. I screamed so loud, the kid across the hall started crying.

    The anesthesia does hurt quite a bit, probably that bad. But what they neglected to mention, the pain is only about 5 seconds. Sounds like you had more than 5 seconds of pain.

    I’m dying at this comment. I really hope it’s referred back to years from now as the original hate lol

    Does anybody feel like the quality of reddit has already dropped massively? (kbin.social)

    I see a lot of comments from bootlickers on how the protests are dumb and stupid and dont work and engagement metrics are still holding but the quality of posts and comments has noticeably depreciated imo. So much so that whenever I visit the site Im actually shocked at how bad it is.

    greatwhitebuffalo41 ,
    @greatwhitebuffalo41@slrpnk.net avatar

    The occasional time I get on there, yes. It’s a bunch of reposts. There’s no substance what so ever and there seems to be a lot of arguing in the comments.

    I have an automod that links to all the other places my sub is on. It's getting mass reported everyday. I have to manually approve them all.

    greatwhitebuffalo41 ,
    @greatwhitebuffalo41@slrpnk.net avatar

    I’m having all of my sticky automod posts that have links offsite in my mod queue for every single post. I have to manually approve them. They show up within minutes of someone making a new post, the automod hits, several minutes later it’s in the mod queue as reported.

    Reddit comments getting reported

    I run a decent sized sub. I've noticed the last few days that all my sticky posts that say where else you can find us are getting mass reported. I usually have like 6 reports a week. I'm getting a report on every post made that gets the sticky all of a sudden. I just took the word "Lemmy" out and we'll see if that changes....

    greatwhitebuffalo41 OP ,
    @greatwhitebuffalo41@slrpnk.net avatar

    Yeah, I'm wondering if they're using keywords to report shit

    greatwhitebuffalo41 ,
    @greatwhitebuffalo41@slrpnk.net avatar

    Yeah the issue with my sub is we've worked really hard to create the community we have. A lot of our users won't leave. I've decided to use an automod sticky comment on every post letting everyone know where the rest of our official pages are. I have seen very little migration unfortunately.

    We decided as a mod team to keep our sub open. We're all migrating off Reddit but we're keeping our accounts for our one singular sub.
