đŸĨ Mr I check in subreply everyday. There is little activity, no? I thought to myself, why I am not contributing? The lack of channels / subs / groups makes it difficult to invest energy. Conversation, like anything, requires direction or moderation to keep focused. Otherwise, we are yelling into the void. That's nice too. sometimes.
đŸĨ Mr Also, you can't reply to yourself on subreply. I suppose it forces you to be thoughtful about your response, but in other ways it's just another limitation to the potential of content.
đŸĨ Mr This website makes me realize that I've been trained to "reward" others for posting online. I feel an uncontrollable urge to "upvote" or "like" comments but quickly realize the button isn't available.
🤔✍ī¸ David It's an odd feeling, isn't it? Perhaps the real reward stems from participation and free-flowing discussions that are motivated by our interest in the topic and conversations rather than attention-seeking behavior :)
😏😎 Yt L. I feel that urge too. There are a lot of posts I'd like here, but what I find off is that I only rarely like or upvote other on other social media. There's a positive energy here that's infectious, I feel.
👂 Sly I think it's a nice missing feature, it forces you to share your opinion instead of lurking and reacting with buttons.
🌊 Zero Two same. I also use the like/upvote button to show I seen your reply/message.
❄☕ Geoff Definitely a feature that it's missing
💩 Niklas I feel the same, but that limitation actually got me to reply to one of your comments and while typing "I really like your perspective", I noticed I could also throw in my own and a follow-up question as well. So I think I prefer replies over simple binary likes.
đŸĨ Mr Anyone know how the Trending tab is populated?
☕✍ī¸ David Antoine I think it displays 15 of the last 30 more replied main posts.
đŸĨ Mr What are you doing since COVID hit?
🕹ī¸ Andrew Studying and consuming media!
đŸĨ Mr In b4 mods take over and delete random posts
