Reddit: we're assholes that don't understand web design and we will shiat on other sites.


This. I'd like to read reddit more often, but it's hard as hell to navigate and follow.

Cletus C.: Really? If you're so in love with Reddit why do you keep jerking Fark around? End it, you coward.


You know what? I have.

I've been coming here since 2001. I remember the old Fark, when it was fun and freewheeling, and before Drew decided he wanted to make the site corporate-safe. Back when epic threads really were epic.

And I, too, was annoyed by people saying the same things I'm saying about Reddit until a year or so ago. But then I actually checked Reddit out. And nearly all the content on Fark really was just re-posted from Reddit a day or so later. And users have a real impact on the community without having to pay $5 a month. And discussions aren't 90% troll bait/troll bash because that stuff gets downvoted. Where there is a specialized discussion area for whatever your interest (though the less said about some, the better). Anyone saying they can't follow Reddit or hate the design are either not actually using the site, stupid, or missing the point, though someone can obviously prefer one over the other.

I've left and I've not been back, and felt I missed little. This story (a content steal of a repost) struck a cord enough for me to log in an post again. Consider this a brief call to an ex after seeing her hit rock bottom in public.

This just in, Tarentino reuses the same names and dialogue over and over again... A LOT.

This isn't "Easter eggs", or some "interconnected universe", its laziness...
Unless anyone believes the reference to "Alabama" in Reservoir Dogs is really a hidden direct reference to "Alabama Whorely" from True Romance.

He's reused everything from didel eyed joe, to damned if I know.

Carth: superoogie: Is this really what Fark has been reduced to? Posting a link to a site that stole an image from a front-page Reddit post from a day or so ago?

And if the author of the steal had bothered to read the comments, there were a bunch more interesting speculations in the thread to include.

It's not News.. It's day old reposted Reddit!


If Fark only posted things on the day they happened, there wouldn't be much content here. Also, it's not a repost unless it was posted on Fark already. Not everyone cares about reddit.

That said, this was hardly worth posting. Meh, it's Monday morning.

superoogie: A fair enough point, but with the trolls gone, at least some relevant, interesting discussion happens. I took a stroll over to Politics, and the same threadcrapping trolls are there from years ago preventing any interesting discussion from happening. God forbid something does happen worth reading, it is buried in all the troll/counter-troll bullshiat. On Reddit, the interesting discussion is threaded and easily readable. Yes, the price for that is a bit more groupthink, but frankly, I find it head and shoulders above what has happened here, or, to the point, what hasn't happened here.


The threads don't make it more readable. They make it harder for minority opinions and newer posts to be seen, same as voting. People reply to the top comment (highest voted) regardless of whether their post is related.

I'm convinced reddit's discussion popularity is due to push notifications and votes. The little orange reply envelope makes you happy. It doesn't really matter what's in it.

You tie your "score" to your personal value and freak out if anything happens to it. That's why people are obsessed with credit and vengeful of "stealing links." You posted MY link from r/Movies in r/Film - how DARE you. Meanwhile you're not producing anything. You're earning a higher score, which means fark all, except in your head. Fark can't "steal" reddit's links. Reddit never makes anything as a community and it deserves no credit for anything linked to from its pages. It's the same as the rest of the internet. It's called sharing.

Get a Total Fark account so you can understand how links are green lit.
I could explain it, but best you just see it yourself.

YodaBlues: /Reddit wouldn't be so bad if the WALLOTEXT layout didn't make me want to jab a fork into my dickhole.


Seeing as how imgur.com URLs more or less follow the subreddits they're posted to, there's absolutely no reason to visit the shiatwall-o-text.
imgur.com/r/ass
imgur.com/r/gonewild
imgur.com/r/funny
imgur.com/r/aww
imgur.com/r/wtf
imgur.com/r/onoff

etc.

Since the only redeeming feature of reddit was the willingness of its readership to remove their clothes and post pictures, having a direct link to the place where almost all of them get posted is obviously a tremendous improvement in user experience.

/Not linkified because of NSFW
You're welcome.
