Ice If you could, how would you personally improve the UX of this site?

โšซ Aaron A cutline somewhere on the replies page to better indicate which ones haven't been read yet. I think any small emphasis would be a huge help :)

Thomas Petersen I would open up the design a little. Like this : dropbox.com/s/xkgb... and collapse threads.

Chris Silverman Sounds silly, but I don't understand how the "replies" function works at all. I'll see a thread with something like "8 replies", and when I click it, I expect the replies to drop down under it in a clear hiearchy. They don't seem to do that, and I don't see the number of replies that the link indicates.

๐Ÿงต Evan It looks like the figure of replies comes from a count of all replies to a given post/reply, then all replies to its replies, and so on. So OP -> reply 1 -> reply to reply 1 = 3 replies to OP's post, even though the third reply is actually not to the OP's post itself.

William Barksdale I don't like having to click in to reply, all the back button is a bit strange after i've jumped into a thread to reply to it.

๐Ÿงž Bit the ability to change text size? the site does work well even if i set zoom level to 120% but the default text is too small on my screen

๐Ÿ˜ Yt L. Updating it to be a bit more efficient in terms of use space on desktop. Consolidating "trends" like Twitter when there's enough traffic.

๐Ÿ‘ป Dan 1. allow line breaks in replies with a shortcut (ctrl-return?). 2. add an actual submit button to replies. It's unclear that entering will submit the reply versus add a new line. 3. larger font

๐Ÿ—ฟ Simohamed You can do line breaks in textareas with shift+return. It won't persist here, though. +1, however. I like the font as is. You can ctrl-plus on your browser or use Stylus chrome extension to change the CSS persistently.

๐Ÿฅ Mr collapse threads, center content like twitter so I don't have to slightly turn my head, simplify navigation (notifications don't need to be separated and are very noisy), also what does the green dot do?

โ˜• Christopher I hate to pile on with the same answers others are given but the minimalist approach is definitely the way to go and making all sections of the threads independently collapsable would go a very long way.
2y, 20w 1 reply
โ™จ๏ธ Adeeb Khan Along with this, make the thread comment stuff stretch to the right more. There's no reason to not use the space. I know that's more UI, but it would go a long way.

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Cyrano I honestly like it so far. I don't use social media beyond lurking on Reddit, but so far it's simple enough for me to like using for commenting and posting. Though, replying gets a little confusing for me. Also, I noticed that one post in Trending has a lot of comments. It'd be cool to be able to collapse the big chunk of comments.

๐Ÿ˜ Yt L. One thing I'm worried about is when it gets big enough to attract spam. Spam and abuse always has the potential to ruin nice things.

Ice I feel that, but I think one of the core ideas of this site was the lack of popularity scores (likes, followers, shares etc)

๐Ÿง” Justin I prefer it without it! One of the reasons I used to like 4chan (10 years ago) in spite of the offensive content and anonymity was that people didn't try to gain the approval of others. I think you end up with more genuine interaction that way, though with 4chan you get a lot more than just that, of course.

Mihail So far i'm impressed by the UX. I'd like to be able to see more context (original post + replies) in the search section. The replies on their own don't mean much without the context.

Ice agreed. I love the minimalist approach overall. I personally see an upcoming roadblock where the replies being un-collapsable and the UX you mentioned might be difficult to scale as the user base grows...
