The new more edgy five-o-clock shadow Reddit.

[-] De_Narm 204 points 4 months ago

...so they got rid of awards in favor of adding arrow shaped awards?

[-] [email protected] 62 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

“Supports the creators” makes me think they have a revenue split and they got rid of the old system to prevent people from not knowing the difference

[-] Holyhandgrenade 38 points 4 months ago

Yeah this also conveniently happens after they made everyone's Reddit Gold invalid. Pretty damn shady if you ask me.

[-] [email protected] 18 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

Need influencers if they are going to IPO

Don’t want to lose money by having to split something people bought a year ago

The "levels" doesn't even make any sense, a splink of different color?

What a lol.

Giving gold supports the creators you love

I'm not going back to Reddit to find the answer but does any of this money actually go to the creators of the post that gets gold?

[-] [email protected] 73 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

If they get at least 10 gold awarded to them within 12 months, and meet the karma/yr threshold, and stay in "good standing" , and aren't nsfw, and any number of the other thresholds Reddit could use to say no, then they might get ~50% of the price paid to award it. Otherwise Reddit just keeps it all.

They don't get money, they get exposure which is more valuable than money anyway /s in case it wasn't obvious

[-] [email protected] 19 points 4 months ago

Exposure is something people can die from.

Remember to always tip your celebrities for promoting whatever dumb projects on on your Internet forums, god knows we could use the money.



[-] Mr_Blott 17 points 4 months ago

Yeah but can we get back to talking about I Don't Even Remember The Name Oh Wait Rampart

[-] MargotRobbie 18 points 4 months ago

You mean Barbie, right?

Because my movies are the only commercial interests permitted on Lemmy. Look at the banner of this community!

I'm not one for circle jerking but reddit is objectively becoming a shittier platform

[-] mlg 27 points 4 months ago

I feel like all of them kinda are

Youtube and Discord conveniently added user tags for no reason literally the moment Twitter went down the already pretty deep hole.

Twitch's favorite pastime is making bank on "unrelated" content

Facebook is just Facebook

Reddit has been constantly losing its appeal every year ever since they moved off the old layout.

Everyone adding/changing things in some meager attempt to drive profits and value without considering effects of user loss because social media is such an oligopoly it doesn't matter.

[-] Crack0n7uesday 10 points 4 months ago

Hiroshima has completely given up on ever making 4chan profitable, so it's still full of porn and casual racism.

Love the desperate grab for revenue prior to IPO.

Too bad the ransomware is getting leaked as soon as they announce the IPO date.

Spez, you done played yourself.

When I used to have gold to gild, I would always give it to the stupidest comment, like the most childish shit ever, if you had a poop joke or something, I'd give you gold, most of the time people would join in and gild the dumb comment.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 4 months ago

Man if I'd have found this out back then I'd have ranted at you for ruining reddit.

[-] HerrBeter 11 points 4 months ago

That was before reddit ruined reddit

[-] [email protected] 44 points 4 months ago

They're paying the user this money or this is just for a fancy little icon next to the post like reddit gold used to be?

[-] Sheeple 32 points 4 months ago

It's literally just reddit currency for their shitty premium

[-] [email protected] 26 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

~~Oh, just more bullshit then. Thanks for clarifying.~~

Edit: they do pay out cash for gold, but they keep most of it.

[-] [email protected] 31 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

Not sure why the others are lying - disliking a platform is not a reason for spreading misinformation.


They are paying eligible users based on karma and gold.

Of course, the program is more of a "see, we have something" than a proper revenue share because of the "get at least 10 gold" criterium and all the other hoops you have to jump through.

[-] [email protected] 32 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

Thank you for the correct answer! I would have gone on believing a lie had you not responded. Here's their payout table:

Contributor Tier Karma (Over 12 mo period) Payout Rate (Dollars per Gold) Minimum Gold for payout
Non-contributor 0-99 Karma No payout; balance rolls over n/a
Contributor 100-4999 Karma $0.90 per 1 Gold 10
Top contributor 5000+ Karma $1.00 per 1 Gold 10

So they charge $2.69-$66.99 for gilding and only give the contributor $0.90-$1, keeping the rest. Wow, sounds like a shit deal for everyone but Reddit.

[-] [email protected] 11 points 4 months ago

So basically this will give a very small handful of gallowboob-scale karma whores maybe a thousand dollars a year.

In all my years in reddit I only got gold once. The prerequisites of needing 10 is just bonkers.

[-] lennybird 19 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

After 10 years, approaching a million comment karma, and many sourced write-ups and copy pastas I got a fair amount. Probably 200 of a mixture of gold and the occasional platinum. This was concentrated in later years as I better understood reddit, and understood specific audiences more. I strove to give genuinely good information, too.

Unfortunately reddit's admins are lazy, suck, and some subs' moderators even worse (looking at r/news) and they screwed me. Their loss. I'll find another platform to publish content, like here of course and elsewhere.

I usually get "gold" by complaining about how admins / employees can give it out for free to drum up interest.

Fuck all that Reddit shit

[-] donio 31 points 4 months ago

Imagine the person (or more likely a whole group) who has spent weeks designing and iterating over those arrows.

Wait are they charging people for upvoteing

[-] [email protected] 23 points 4 months ago

It's what the old gold used to be. They rebranded it and added a tiny incentive for content creators (like a dollar per gold, regardless of the level of gold, once you reach a certain karma level)

Really it's just shittier reddit gold and another way reddit is trying to make money off of colorful arrows

A repost bot’s dream

[-] Nusm 24 points 4 months ago

This is off topic, but why isn't there an animated gif of Bugs Bunny saying the "NO"? I mean, we have animated gifs for almost everything else, but I only see this as a static pic. Can no one find the cartoon that this is from and create a gif from it?

[-] [email protected] 36 points 4 months ago

It is because the cartoon in which the frame is from he doesn't actually say no. The frame is taken just after he chugs a whole bottle of "Hare Tonic" https://youtu.be/uuKiqu3g_sE
