I'm going to miss AITA. Even if someone makes it a community, it will take a long time to populate.

Honestly, I think the more reliable curated information will be what I miss the most. I almost always append a Google search with "Reddit" - because the information and format are so much more reliable than the bot populated garbage sites.

Also, niche porn subs. ๐Ÿซก

[โ€“] rhythm_ 31 points 1 year ago (4 children)

I literally add "reddit" to the end of a search all the time...thought I was the only one

[โ€“] [email protected] 22 points 1 year ago

I think we all learned to do that eventually. It's like losing an encyclopedia

/r/AskHistorians - ruthlessly and efficiently moderated, but every single post a fascinating read. I should msg Zukhov to see if he wants to move ship to /c/AskHistorians.

[โ€“] [email protected] 40 points 1 year ago (2 children)

That would be amazing if the current AskHistorians team moved here. It's legitimately one of the best run subs.

Really going to miss my local subreddit.

We had a weekly rant thread and it was funny just seeing neighbors talk smack or bitch about silly little things.

[โ€“] [email protected] 31 points 1 year ago (2 children)

For sure. My small city sub was hilarious. Always people asking "anyone know why there's a helicopter flying over our city?!"

Ours was "Did you hear that noise??"

Iโ€™m really worried for those who use third party apps and depend on r/stopdrinking. That community single-handedly helped me get sober.

I fear that someone who is on the brink of breaking sobriety and wants to reach out on r/stopdrinking, not being able to access it from the app they normally use would be just enough of a hurdle for them to give in and start drinking again.

Makes me really sad to think about since it can be a dark place and the people there are so genuinely caring.

there was a quote from a reddit exec recently about how awful it was that people were 'sharing things that they wouldn't even say in therapy' which were going un-monetized. sick, sick people

i subbed to lots of mental health subs which were invaluable in the last 10 years. 1.5yrs sober as well. hope lemmy is a good alt; hopefully there won't be any automod bullshit, like towards the end i couldn't even get a post through in /r/depression, i mean my god

I mostly will miss being able to google something and adding "reddit" to my search to search for public opinion on day to day issues and problems.

[โ€“] mrnorrisman 51 points 1 year ago (3 children)

This is probably one of the biggest losses. Reddit was my go-to for finding actual answers to questions I had. Without it, you end up with nothing but sponsored articles that don't really answer the question.

[โ€“] [email protected] 56 points 1 year ago (3 children)

That's an easy problem to solve. When I was 10 and went on a family holiday trip to Advertisistan, I first came into contact with the awesome concept that is Buythiscrap. It is a very sophisticated process, but my parents, who were born in a time where lead was still a perfectly fine additive to gasoline, taught me well during the stay.

Before I remembered the the concept of Buythiscrap, I had the same problems as you, but when looking through the holiday pictures from Scammyphotobooks, which has a really amazing software to work with, the concept came back to me.

There are 3 different solutions to solve your problem, but each of them is easy to shop and has its own shipping costs.

1st solution: Use the first add on Google

If you apply Buythiscrap correctly, you should reward the company that paid Google the most to be on top of the search. Better yet, buy some products you don't even need with the low quality garbage they want to sell you.

2nd solution: Use the second add on Google As an alternative, you can also click on sponsored content nr. 2, as they also paid a great deal to be up there. And we from Buythiscrap really appreciate when companies pay for their products to be shoved down your throat.

3rd solution Scroll down to the Garbagefilledwithpops blog post, where for every three lines, there is an auto play video of unrelated topics and product, and every half a page of scrolling, you are presented with a aesthetically pleasing pop up add that includes a riddle to close it. Remember to sign up for their newsletter, as they will kindly distribute your personal information to companies that take good care of your data and send you relevant product offers.

If you are not convinced of Buythiscrap by now, try to check out these amazing alternatives:

  • Moneyforbillionaires
  • Yourdataisfreeforall
  • Organfarm
  • Prince Bank of Nigeria

Not a subreddit, exactly, but I'm going to miss /u/poem_for_your_sprog and /u/Schnoodle_Doodle_Do. They made browsing so much better - I loved unexpectedly coming across one of their poems.

While there were a billion ones I've used as entertainment before bed or during bathroom breaks... I believe what I'll miss the most is the ability to search "problem I'm having + Reddit" and get very precise results with (usually) great solutions.

I'm going to miss many of them, I'm a real reddit junkie. But I'm leaving tonight and don't expect to be back.

Most missed: Witches vs. Patriarchy. Can't seem to find a lemmy equivalent.

Honestly, a lot of NSFW subs devoted to somewhat niche fetishes. I saw started up as a separate instance for NSFW content, and I'm hoping at least some of these subs make it over there soon.

Comics. I don't think a lot of comic creators will start posting here, so can't interact with the creator.

With that, also not sure about editing like bonehurtingjuice.

Also, potentially somewhat nsfw subs dedicated to specific people. Somehow I doubt the Lemmy community in general has much interest in that. Too mainstream I guess?

Just the specificity of communities you could find.

To name a few I've used frequently the past few months:





r/[my college]

r/[the town where I live]

I love lemmy but so far the userbase just isn't big enough to fill a lot of the niches I'm looking for. I'm excited to see the community grow though and I'm hopeful about the future.

Subs that deal with medical issues. It was nice being able to go to them for advice or to help others.

Such subs were already niche on Reddit, and given their often embarrassing nature, I don't think we'll see them on lemmy in any comparable form for a while.

I definitely miss knowledge stuff like r/eli5 r/nostupidquestion r/space r/science r/todayilearned

I browsed reddit a lot learning new stuff everyday while drinking my morning tea. But the thing I miss the most are the comments. So many posts got debunked or verified or explained even more with sources in the comments. Because of course there is a guy or a girl somewhere learning all about one type of drywall installation for 30+ years telling everyone why this wall installation in the gif can only be in 5 mile radius in Norway.

To be honest, so many posts from r/AITA came off as fake after a while, I was already beginning to lose interest. People would do anything for upvotes. Maybe this time we can have less liars, but I'm not so naive as to actually hope for that.
