Creative burnt out gifted kid just trying to exist On Mastodon @email@example.com
I joined the Beehaw instance a bit ago with a small exodus from Tildes, another Reddit alternative. It’s been nice to see the community grow and grow steadily as time progressed, and seeing the Reddit refugees makes me hopeful for the platform’s strength going into the future regardless of what Reddit does with its API (or other features).
As for the toxic side of Reddit, I’m more concerned for the devs in having to deal with the reports, but as a Reddit mod myself, I don’t think it’ll be too bad. At least on Beehaw we have a supportive community and I’m reminded of a video talking about the userbase of the early UseNet and how they dealt with the first spammer (not necessarily their methods, but the fact that they rose up as a community to enforce a community rule). Hopefully we can see that here (i.e. “the report button exists”).
Edit: a detail
Is Lemmy.ml not the flagship instance? Or is it just one of the larger ones?
I have played a little bit of VR but since I have an Oculus Rift (not a Rift S, a Rift) and I switched from Windows to Linux, I can’t play any of my games. I’d love to sell my Rift to get a Quest, but I don’t think I’ll get much for it anyway, let alone be able to sell it in the first place. That is unless I want to write a Linux-based driver for the thing.
They’re changing how Affiliates and Partners get paid and how they’re allowed to stream on Twitch. And they still have a 50/50 payout split as opposed to the 70/30 split that several partners have been asking for.
