I really feel like I'm either completely out of touch with Irish people these days or they're just a bunch of absolute retards on that sub.
Plus you can't post your view that doesn't go with everyone else's or it just gets downvoted into oblivion.

I agree that boards threads often degenerate after a few pages but I'd rather have that than reddit's up voting and down voting. There are far too many subreddits as well. The layout of the place isn't for me.

Anything that makes you automatically like on your own posts is up itself anyways. I got fed up with having to remove them and then realised it probably then looks like I got a dislike which didn’t make any sense?!.... questioned the logic, of even being on there in the first place even if it was just for tech help and then shut that shiįt down.

whatever about people downvoting stuff they disagree with there, the massive benefit to boards is you can see who thanked stuff.

500 upvotes from random yanks who are easily swayed by the gist of an argument...

Do you mean the leaked onlyfans images are on Reddit? If so that's just wrong ffs

I prefer forums like this because I can remember the posters better because I have an avatar and a name to picture them with, unlike Reddit where it's just a brief username over a comment

That and it sucks almighty donkey c**k when you're downvoted for no reason other then not kowtowing to the party (subreddit) line. Spending your time without considering other worldviews isn't healthy, I'm sure most of the divisiveness today comes from people spending too much on Reddit/Twitter/whatever the big internet site is in their comfort.

Niche subs, sure but why someone would moderate a big one like like r/politics for free is unfathomable IMO.
Strangely enough, Reddit has never turned a profit. I'm not sure if Boards does.

It hasn't. Saw the accounts once in the secret mods forum and the amount spent paying the mods for their services is scandalous.

You get paid by the yellow card, red card with extra wages for forum bans.

If you manage to give someone a site ban you get employee of the month with your picture in the super secret mods bunker forum.

Agreed, I find it completely bewildering, could never understand how it works. And like CapallDorcha I can't fathom how anyone would be willing to mod on reddit for free.

The option to nest replies on Boards as threads go along would be nice, along the lines of having the our current set up for threads as the default view, but being able to click on a button which would nest the replies of posters who are going back and forth with one another so that they branch off from the main thread - but the site would have to be completely overhauled obvs so it's not going to happen.

As a civil servant, this is news to me: (from reddit)
Quote:
If you know where to look, you can find a fair amount of information on Boards about the inner workings of government departments. It's actually pretty cool the way civil servants use it as a way of leaking information that is far too niche for any newspaper to care about.
Sorry, what???

I went on it on mobile to find out. You can't view it on mobile without downloading the app. One of my biggest issues with it in general is it's insistence to download the app and use it.

Couple that with the 1990's style of forum and I just can't. Boards, with the issues it has, is far superior imo.
