🥝 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.
🥝 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.
🥝 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.
🤔✍️ 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.
