kinda sucks

Negative Comment by jamiegray
about Reddit Jul 2016

came looking for an alternative to reddit because reddit's user interface is ugly (online; the apps can be quite nice) ...but unfortunately voat is the exact same thing as reddit the only difference is that there are no moderators.

Where can I find alternatives platforms for community managers and developers?

about Reddit and vBulletin Jun 2014

You can make a subreddit easily enough and become a mod there, or you can take the source and use it on your own website, since the code is free. I'd like to have a way to show Reddit alternatives specific to this usage? For instance one might list vBulletin as an alternative.

about Reddit and Snapzu, Digg Jan 2014

When Digg it was kind of cool and got ruined by investors that removed the top 700 users to be able to push their own stories more effectively.
At that time the kids with absolutely no friends discovered reddit and liked the puristic look.
Reddit grew and even was able to shake of some of the control Condé Nast has and become the number one in aggregating links. Hooray.
But just like every system the ideals and rules fail at some point in time. So Reddit got more and more users, reposts became daily and even though the content got more and more mainstream (by deleting subs such as jailbait etc.) the number of users was still increasing. Everybody can create a sub and discuss anything. And that "anything" led to the most absurd and even illegal subs. So moderators of subs were enabled to ban users. That wasn't part of the original reddit concept and made reddit the next dig: a crappy bloated system with unbearable people in power.
Reddit calls one of the most devlish functions "shadow ban" and allows all mods to ban users from subs they moderate or even from entire reddit. There is even a sub about that: http://www.reddit.com/r/shadowban

But, you can guess, this was a stupid idea because it became a tool for many to silence users with opinions they just didn't like.
Tools to check on bans emerged: http://shadowbancheck.appspot.com and there are hordes of internet bullies trolling the s*#t out of reddit.

New communities like 9Gag or SnapZu are comming up with more creativity and/or focus on certain aspects of digital life.

about Reddit Sep 2011

I like Reddit better than Digg because I can filter what things I see on there. My Reddit homepage consists entirely of pictures of cats, PC building tips, and rage comics. More or less.

What I DON'T like about Reddit is that their website is super-slow. Reloading the homepage takes a million years, and every once in a while, loading the comments section just causes my old Windows computer to freeze for 10 seconds. :(
