🐇 Robert Blinov Smart people are being silenced so stupid people won't be offended.
🏒 Lucian Marin Tom said something similar on !co9: idiots want to punish the non-idiots for the problems idiots create.
☝ Jean-David Moisan Why should it get renamed?
🏒 Lucian Marin Firefox brand is weak, it's associated with IE era and it's dropping market share like crazy. Mozilla brand got a nice refresh, it's trusted, it's associated with privacy and they got new good products that need to carry Mozilla brand. It should be Mozilla Suite for a new internet age: Mozilla Browser, Mozilla VPN, Mozilla Monitor and so on. This way the browser will be their main product, it will have internal focus and probably gain back the market share.
🏒 Lucian Marin Mozilla should rename Firefox back to Mozilla while it's not to late.

🏒 Lucian Marin I'm a bit excited for the new Matrix movie. But yes, follow all the active people... agents.
🏒 Lucian Marin Follow the white rabbit.
🐓 Mega Tried to edit my profile; I don't think I can set "Washington, DC" as my city, how would I do it? (I guess I could just put "Washington" but it's not really the same since it's in the District of Columbia.
🏒 Lucian Marin Try Washington, United States. It works. I will try to match location by city name alone.
☕✍️ David Antoine It's good as it is. Notifications would be nice to follow replies of others on a thread you interacted... And as I mentioned some time ago, I'd like to have the character limit go back to 640. So to not have older posts truncated. I found myself reading my 4 years old posts... Don't know why. :smirking_face:
🏒 Lucian Marin Check to see if problem is solved for older posts. I think you might be right. 480 limit was without emoji support, 640 could let you add a link and a few emojis.
☕✍️ David Antoine Do you have new features in mind for Subreply in the near future or are you pretty happy with it as it is for now?
🏒 Lucian Marin I'm happy if you are happy with it... :clown_face: but I think we need email notifications as noticed.
🏒 Lucian Marin In other news, tookapic.com is shutting down. It launched in 2014, same as Sub. Their comments section was an inspiration for how replies look here. I will never shut down Sub now that is has this nice .com domain. I optimized the backend performance for the cost of a Netflix/Spotify subscription.

🌲 Tho long live sub!!
🏒 Lucian Marin Subreply is now an inspiration for open source projects like github.com/loriup/... it seems. I built a logparser to get unique referring sites and it proves to be useful.
☝ Jean-David Moisan It's definitely hard to believe. I guess it's possible if most people lurk without any account. We have around ~50 active people otherwise. Might be bots browsing the site?
🏒 Lucian Marin When /trending was the default public page, the numbers were lower. It seems that index rate has increased because /discover changes more often. Spam bots are looking for xmlrpc.php but those numbers are low.
🏒 Lucian Marin Should I believe GoAccess when it says that Subreply gets ~1500 daily unique visitors?
☕✍️ David Antoine How many total accounts ? 3000 ? That would be half of the users visiting daily, pretty good I guess...

🌲 Tho macports vs homebrew?
🏒 Lucian Marin I only used homebrew. It has everything I need.
😝 Tom I think it's finally time for me to make a smartphone app.
🏒 Lucian Marin I want to build a background restriction manager for Android. I found how to do it, but procrastination is really strong with this one.
🌲 Tho i've ordered MacBook m1 air :O
🏒 Lucian Marin You liked macOS so much you ordered a MacBook Air?
Zero Edge Man buys Fake Banksy NFT sold through artist's website for 244k - "Be your own Banksy" <- Such a good burn lol : reddit.com/r/Buttc...
🏒 Lucian Marin Why would anyone pay so much in the first place? A tweet sold for $2.9m.
