☀️ Robert Its existence yes, but not the interface design. One-color Subreply looked better, but I'm all for experimentation!
🏒 Lucian Marin I like keeping the design simple. But experimenting I found about grid-column-gap which makes the layout perfectly centered. Also, I set a ratio of 1:3.5 between sidebar and content area.
Jesper Bylund Can't believe this place is still around. Love the retro style!
🏒 Lucian Marin Let's double down on retro style! Does anyone remember the pager? 📟
😁 James Hall Hey subreply! I've been looking for a simple alternative to twitter, and I think this just might be it. This community feels slow, but thoughtful and personal. Better than the hecticness that is most of the internet
🏒 Lucian Marin You're not the only one. Paul for example on 0xff.nu/social-net... wants something simpler than Subreply. I don't know how that can be possible while remaining usable.
🧔🏻‍♂️ Nitin Pai Completely agree. It took me years to figure out the right size. Also what to put (and what not to put) on it.
🏒 Lucian Marin My previous desk was 155x75 cm and felt way too big. The new one is 120x70 cm and it's perfect for two laptops. I don't need an external monitor, keyboard or mouse.
🦇 Arr Idea: Poll based social media. No texting between users in the public section. Just the possibility to doodle into events, find common interests in a "which do you prefer" style, (dating via yes/no?!), sharing links with up/downvote button, commenting on memes with funny🦘/not funny stickers. But without comments that could go toxic. Perhaps with "ask poll creator to add option" reply free text, though.
🏒 Lucian Marin Idea: Coloring based social media. Oh, wait... that's Penup by Samsung.
☀️ Robert It seems like apostrophes drop in these long stories.
🏒 Lucian Marin I coded non-stop this week to get news and private messages up and running. I will take care of 🐛🐞.
🦆 Vivek Integrating unfeeder with subreply was a superb idea.
🏒 Lucian Marin You can zap through today news in 5 minutes. Also, it gives you an idea of how long stories would look on Subreply.
🏒 Lucian Marin I discovered caity.info/work in the News section. Amazing! It's getting closer to a minimal Newsvine, the only social newspaper.
☀️ Robert Diversity of opinion is beautiful.
🏒 Lucian Marin It's beautiful to have an opinion of your own.
😀 Tom This is the second story I'm reading where everybody instantly has access to everyone's complete digital life, secrets and all. In both stories, the world goes crazy and seems to break down. I wonder if it would actually happen that way. Probably.
🏒 Lucian Marin You already have access to anyone work history on LinkedIn and exactly what they worked on. Most important life moments are on Instagram. Code that all computers run on is public on GitHub. World's richest man spent his money on tweets and memes. We live in a Black Mirror episode or simply the 21st century.
🏒 Lucian Marin What makes me productive is my solid desk. I got an Ikea Idasen almost 3 years ago. They say it's built to outlast years of coffee and hard work.

👨‍💻 Matthieu V. News tab and new icons on the sidebar ? I see is trying things !
🏒 Lucian Marin I was designing UIs for Isocubes in Figma and I noticed heroicons.dev fit perfectly. I hope won't be upset for replacing his icons. I can't believe how hard is to start a new platform from scratch. Now I try to maximize the value each user gets from Subreply by adding features.

Zero Edge The field of "Psychology" should be reset every 100 years and started fresh. If you started from a blank slate I highly doubt the same conclusions would be reached. Most shaky field of "science" by far.
🏒 Lucian Marin I read "Prophecy". It made sense to have a new one every 100 years. :/
🤓 Simon Hamp I think this could be cool
🏒 Lucian Marin It has been cool for a long period of time. On Sunday happens to be 8th birthday.
🙂 Mfalmewamatiti This site gives me the vibes of Micro.blog but text-focused
🏒 Lucian Marin I see that Micro.blog has turned into a cleaner Tumblr from a Twitter clone. 🍿

😀 Tom Just started reading a novel. The description about getting on the computer and deciding whether to dial into AOL... the feels. It's crazy to think about, the Internet not being any always-on service.
🏒 Lucian Marin Gemini protocol reminds me of dial-up days in a good way. Any internet connection is better than no internet at all.
