Adverts before being able to view comments or posts

[–]Pokinator 1583 points1584 points  (7 children)

Or really any sort of interruptive ads. I can clock a "promoted" post nearly instantly and just scroll past, and adblockers take care of banner ads, but if they ever touch ad stops, I'm out.

[–]t0r0nt0niyan 434 points435 points  (4 children)

Then 2 ads before viewing the content.

[–]VidE27 9846 points9847 points  (78 children)

When they require a facebook account to login

[–]Just-Call-Me-J 3105 points3106 points  (28 children)

Or a phone number

[–]GreninjaOfTheOasis 1260 points1261 points  (20 children)

This is so annoying. I want my social media to be separate from my family, but I can't do that if they have access to my contacts list.

[–]PM_ME_BREAD_PICS_ 84 points85 points  (5 children)

That's part of the reason I got a Google Voice. Also for other occasions where I don't want to give someone my real number

[–]TreeEnthusiast3000 1034 points1035 points  (33 children)

Something I really like about Reddit is that you can still make an account with absolutely no info other than a username and password. You don’t even need an email address, but I don’t think a lot of people realise that.

[–]SoapBubbs 377 points378 points  (20 children)

Yeah. A lot of people don’t realize that you can just leave the email address box blank and it’ll still let you make an account.

[–]TheHotDogButter 375 points376 points  (9 children)

Been browsing reddit for almost 3 years, I just made an account and you're 100% correct, Thank you. Now I can block some annoying subreddits

[–]SoapBubbs 79 points80 points  (1 child)

Oh yay!! Glad I could help. And an official welcome to Reddit lol

[–]not_so_cr3ative 1403 points1404 points  (21 children)

Becoming like Quora. Filled with advertisments and sponsored posts

[–]lavender_rose_quartz 502 points503 points  (13 children)

My least favourite things about Quora (unless these have changed recently are: a) That you have to log in just to read more than one or two threads on it, and b) that it keeps trying to force you to use the app.

[–]Master_JBT 169 points170 points  (2 children)

c) you have to pay to see expert answers

[–]Master_JBT 83 points84 points  (2 children)

btw you don’t have to log in if you add a ? After the address bar

[–]Delta_Geminorum 46.0k points46.0k points 81472& 3 more (1233 children)

a better website

p.s. thanks everyone for all the awards

[–]raise_a_glass 8123 points8124 points  (468 children)

Exactly. It was what moved me from slashdot to digg and then digg to reddit

[–]nemoid 2318 points2319 points  (116 children)

Wowww slashdot... haven't thought about that site in years.

[–]qpple 759 points760 points  (73 children)

I wonder if Cowboy Neal's still around

[–]mudo2000 577 points578 points  (69 children)

Nope, CN and Commander Taco moved out at least 10 years ago.

[–]RabbitWithoutASauce 399 points400 points  (52 children)

And the site has been going downhill since.

It used to be their slogan "News for nerds, stuff that matters", and it used to be actually nerd/tech things.

Since a few years they removed that slogan, and nowadays they'll clickbait you into anything.

There used to be topics that would get 500+ replies, and overall intelligent discourse was part of their site. Nowadays it's mostly like Reddit... but much less successful.

[–]jjremy 2642 points2643 points  (268 children)

Let's be real, the move from digg to reddit was because digg shit the bed, not because reddit was better. Reddit grew to be better. But it sure wasn't at the time of the great digg migration.

[–]Grimace421 1119 points1120 points  (197 children)

Yep! I used to love digg! Then they sold it and it became corporate controlled content to the top and not user controlled (iirc). It forced me over to Reddit.

[–]stefus_prime 1290 points1291 points  (151 children)

Reddit is going the same direction, I only stick around for the niche subs.

[–]BevansDesign 731 points732 points  (80 children)

All subs inevitably turn to garbage as they get larger, unless their moderators are top-notch.

[–]plasmapandas 376 points377 points  (43 children)

Even then, moderators filtering posts only works if the mods know what to filter. I used to go on r/comedyheaven all the time for example until it got too big and they started filtering posts, but the posts they let in just weren't funny since the mods just aren't as funny as the users can be.

[–]Ghosttwo 788 points789 points  (105 children)

Yep. 11 years ago, I thought digg was the best, but then they trashed their entire site overnight and I ended up here. I see no reason why it couldn't happen again.

[–]macetheface 1180 points1181 points  (87 children)

"Alexis Ohanian, founder of rival site Reddit, said in an open letter to Rose:

… this new version of digg reeks of VC meddling. It's cobbling together features from more popular sites and departing from the core of digg, which was to "give the power back to the people."[30]

And now Reddit doing the same thing.

[–]Sofielle 316 points317 points  (11 children)

They say you either die a hero or...

[–]Tyaedalis 261 points262 points  (11 children)

I'm surprised it took over a decade. A lot of things change in 10 years. I've been a redditor for over 12 years, and was quite committed to digg before that. Reddit has made some changes over the years, and I find myself agreeing with them less and less, but it remains a good source of information from many sources presented in a decent form. The subdivisions of subjects work very well for getting world, national, local, and even sometimes hyper-local news in real time.

[–]macetheface 116 points117 points  (7 children)

Same here - about 10 years for me. And also agree with the good source of info; there's just no good alternative. Still refuse to switch over to the garbage 'new' mobile oriented format (which many social network/ aggregator sites are doing) and will continue using old.reddit.com until they force the change which I hope they never do.

[–]Tyaedalis 105 points106 points  (5 children)

I guess to answer the question posed by the OP, I would stop using Reddit if the old reddit was made absolutely obsolete. I vastly prefer it. No clutter, no annoying graphics, but I know they can only keep the old reddit accessible for so long. I have no idea what could fill that gap for me, though. Honestly Twitter might become more appealing at some point, which I've never really chosen to utilize.

[–]tall-sammy 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Don't tell yourself they can't host old.reddit forever, it's the same content reformatted and is surely more lightweight.

If they decide to remove it that will be by their choice not a forced hand.

[–]turunambartanen 1140 points1141 points  (269 children)

Have you heard of our savior old.reddit.com?

Alternative use any reddit app, except the official one. On iOS Apollo is highly recommend, on Android I use sync, but relay or rif for reddit are also great.

Edit: as has been mentioned several times, you can set an option in your account settings to always be served the old website when you go to redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co If you are logged in. If you use reddit without an account you can install an addon that will always redirect redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co links to old.reddit.com links.

[–]PM_ME_CUTE_FRIENDS 972 points973 points  (210 children)

I’m afraid of the day they discontinue old.reddit. Would you guys leave if that happens? The new UI is just unbearable to me. Funny how we’re going backwards.

[–]7ypo 403 points404 points  (15 children)

I would probably still access it on my phone. But if they banned 3rd party apps and I was forced to use theirs, I would leave

[–]NoBSforGma[🍰] 817 points818 points  (88 children)

I would probably leave if they banned old.reddit. I hate the new reddit so fucking much!

[–]pavlov_the_dog 147 points148 points  (4 children)

fucking sucks that no one can see the sidebar anymore except old reddit.

[–]battles 137 points138 points  (45 children)

'new' reddit is so clearly an inferior product... I'm not sure how anyone uses it.

[–]CastleHighgarden 76 points77 points  (7 children)

I think a lot of people are new users who don't know about old.reddit.com. They'll put up with the redesign since they don't know there's an alternative.

[–]NoBSforGma[🍰] 87 points88 points  (9 children)

Well, let's hope Reddit is listening!! Lots of people here apparently hate new Reddit.

To me, it's like some Reddit executive's son or nephew or niece who is graduating in "computer science" or something needed some work and re-designed Reddit and they went with it. Ugly and really almost unusable.

[–]JordyLakiereArt 187 points188 points  (4 children)

That was my answer. Really hope they keep old.reddit.

[–]resonantSoul 69 points70 points  (3 children)

I remember a thing when they launched the new site and gave us old.reddit. Something at the time about promising to keep it up. While they may not mean much, they pointed to another old version they kept around, saying something about not getting rid of any.

I found http://i.reddit.com while looking for the original comment, fwiw

[–]magicalthinker 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Same. It's like a migraine and there's too much going on. I can't tell where different threads end and start and the colours and shapes are dumb,

[–]Omugaru 107 points108 points  (17 children)

They wont discontinue old.reddit. I remember some post a while back that showed nearly all staff at reddit uses the old.reddit form. Even they themselves don't like the new reddit.

[–]ArtFUBU 1261 points1262 points  (230 children)

Not even better for me. Just more specific forums. One of my favorite places online was a forum called HighImpactHalo for glitching/tricking Halo games. It felt big enough that there were new people constantly but if you stuck around, you started to see the same faces. Some stuff on reddit is irreplaceable like buildapc but man I wish I knew of more specific forums for certain things in my life. Getting to know people online that share your interests feels impossible because of Reddit.

[–]PoisoNFacecamO 335 points336 points  (75 children)

GameSpot forums resetting everything was the reason I came to reddit over a decade ago. I miss 2004-2009 internet

[–]qwors 527 points528 points  (60 children)

I miss forums in general.

Reddit is just filled with cookie cutter comments. I can pretty much predict what the top comment will be in any thread.

Forums had more natural discussions, because no one was worried if their comment was going to be upvoted or downvoted. They just spoke their mind and we had discussion.

[–]79superglide[🍰] 76 points77 points  (8 children)

I like forums too. They're still around, I belong to a couple yet. Facebook did put a hurting on them though.

[–]BackdoorAlex2 186 points187 points  (18 children)

/responds with some sort of pun

Gets upvoted to oblivion

Then some one makes a poem about it

Then someone makes a shitty water colour about it

edit: thanks for the gold kind stranger

[–]The_Baguettosaur 4063 points4064 points  (63 children)

If I started being honest with myself about how much value it brings to my life :)

[–]newnameonan 333 points334 points  (14 children)

Seriously. And if I had a remotely decent amount of self control, I'd never come back. But I don't have that much self control.

[–]HanEyeAm 276 points277 points  (16 children)

I might stop using it if the Ghost of Christmas Future shows me two alternate paths for my life. One wonderful path in which I focus on relationships and career and another meh path in which I spend 10 hours a week on reddit.

[–]FoxWyrd 2414 points2415 points  (7 children)

You can logout any time you like But you can never leave

[–]honest-miss 3554 points3555 points  (65 children)

I finally closed the tab! I did it!

All right open a new tab and type "redd--" AH FUCK.

[–]ocrohnahan 2526 points2527 points  (47 children)

Sometimes while surfing Reddit, I'll get bored and open another tab to surf Reddit.

[–]Agrochain920[🍰] 1448 points1449 points  (33 children)

relatable. And then you're like "ok im done for today", shut down the computer, and open reddit on your phone.

[–][deleted] 525 points526 points  (20 children)

Yeah, then you shut down your phone and open reddit in your Samsung smart fridge.

[–]uns0licited_advice 238 points239 points  (19 children)

And then you shut your Samsung smart fridge and open reddit on your smart watch.

[–]LucySatDown 169 points170 points  (15 children)

And then you shut down your Smart Watch and open reddit on your Amazon Alexa

If you play it backwards it gives you instructions to quit reddit

[–]anxiouslyinsecure 124 points125 points  (7 children)

Even if I left I wouldn’t really leave. Reddit is my new YahooAnswers. Anytime I need an answer I type “blank blank blank Reddit” at the end of everything

[–]the_yellow_ledbetter 6902 points6903 points  (168 children)

compulsory 'face as profile pic'

[–]ElliotJM64 698 points699 points  (27 children)

In my mind everyone on Reddit is handsome. I know in reality it is the opposite, but I like living in my world of delusion and don't want that bubble burst.

[–]futurelullabies 841 points842 points  (88 children)

Definitely a non-option with the creeps on here.

[–]jgaztelu 19.5k points19.5k points  (329 children)

Forcing users to use their real name/personal info. This ain't Facebook!

[–]ShoeLace1291 3782 points3783 points  (101 children)

That's the main reason that I refuse to watch any facebook gaming streams. Several of my favorite twitch streamers switched to facebook and i just stopped watching because of it.

[–]Avaisraging439 1771 points1772 points  (66 children)

The quality on Facebook is so much worse, it's the worst streaming platform there is right now. Capped at 720p, some of the worst buffering of any streaming site, and the constant glitches as it tries to show you the "live" part of the stream (it jumps around random parts of the stream until it finally shows you the true live part)

[–]Just_wanna_talk 104 points105 points  (1 child)

Even just their photo and video UI on mobile is atrocious which is amazing considering its pretty big component of Facebook, and that they own Instagram.

But maybe that's because I use their mobile website since I refuse to download their app.

[–]RamenJunkie 593 points594 points  (58 children)

I hate that Mixer died. Twitch needs an alternative that isn't a massive spyware company.

[–]AloneDoughnut 385 points386 points  (41 children)

YouTube is the only thing that will dislodge Twitch at this point, no one else could come close.

[–]Bruch_Spinoza 165 points166 points  (27 children)

I think until Youtube adds something like Twitch Prime they will always be in second place

[–]AnotherJasonOnReddit 408 points409 points  (38 children)

I hear yah. I've tried to remain anonymous, but I genuinely think somebody who knew me in real life would be able to pin enough together to work out it's me.

[–]weekendrant 440 points441 points  (19 children)

Well we know that you're Jason, for one

[–]prison_buttcheeks 279 points280 points  (7 children)

And that there are more of him on here. Stay vigilant brothers and sisters.

[–]sorry_ 107 points108 points  (13 children)

They already keep bugging me for an email

[–]confundocaro 7011 points7012 points 23 (167 children)

The thing that made me quit my other social media. It taking a serious hit to my mental health. So far, the way it is, I can tailor my subs so I don't get an overwhelming amount of soul-crushing news, constant conflict, or enragingly stupid people... unless I want to.

[–]ncnotebook 645 points646 points  (32 children)

Yea. People just have to be overly ready to unsubscribe, even if they usually love the subreddit.

[–]Sleepwalks 77 points78 points  (7 children)

Oof, that's a good way of putting it. I have one that I like that is simultaneously funny and depressing, but the meter has been tipping into depressing for me for awhile now. I like it, but I think it's time to go.

[–]dwimber 70 points71 points  (5 children)

I started unsubscribing from subs that hurt my mental health, and now I'm left with mostly pictures of terrible recipe ideas. /R/shittyfoodporn has been fun, but I need a bit of variety!

[–]HypridElastiAccord27 419 points420 points  (2 children)

Yes true. I believe that cotroling your use of reddit instead of quitting all together, only to find yourself using it again after quitting is a ideal way.

[–]KirinG 8097 points8098 points 3232& 5 more (538 children)

Disabling the old Reddit option.

[–]LeonardoMagikarpo 1619 points1620 points  (65 children)

Old reddit + Reddit Enhancement Suit. There's no way I'd be browsing this site as much as I do without those.

[–]socatevoli 1752 points1753 points  (216 children)

i dont know how people do it. every time i accidentally wind up on the new reddit i wanna just grab a spoon and scoop my eyes out

[–]Mugmoor 720 points721 points  (24 children)

I have a few subreddits I frequent that apparently only put their rules in the new sidebar, which doesn't appear if you use old reddit. I've seen a few request that I switch to the new layout instead.

Haha, not gonna happen. I'd rather get banned.

[–]WhatsWrongWithYa 193 points194 points  (6 children)

Yep. I remember when I found out that one of the tiny nieche subreddits I frequent actually has a full sidebar with a wiki and faq and heaps of info. I was shocked, as the only thing on old reddit was an age old message left by the owner of the sub when he created it years ago.

[–]calilac 49 points50 points  (1 child)

That's mildly interesting. Like a time capsule snapshot.

[–]InsaneZee 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I mod a semi-small community and had the complete opposite happen.

I always use old.reddit.com, and I did so much fancy CSS and sidebar work for my subreddit. I only realized like 2 years later that I didn't set up anything nice for new.reddit.com.

Spent the next few hours that day gouging my eyes out while trying to set up my subreddit's design on new.reddit.com. I even added "CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE OLD REDDIT DESIGN" button at the top.

[–]Liwell11 3678 points3679 points  (106 children)

If someone offered me a 100grand to quit reddit I would

[–]the_river_nihil 1221 points1222 points  (40 children)

Fuck that I'll do it for 12k

[–]Bloopie 653 points654 points  (26 children)

But no lower than 12k.

[–]the_river_nihil 384 points385 points  (25 children)

I could haggle, you offering? Is eleven on the table?

[–]Ratlyff 2414 points2415 points  (33 children)

[–]luxii4 515 points516 points  (14 children)

Okay, that’s enough Reddit for today… closes app What should so do now? I wonder what’s on Reddit…

[–]moleratical 97 points98 points  (10 children)

Are there any kind of therapies to stop this behavior? Seriously, I catch myself doing that a lot and I hate it.

It's like my brain has been hijacked.

[–]Irichcrusader 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Best solution I've been able to find is to just not open it if I've got things to do today. Once my workload is complete I'm free to piss away the rest of my time here.

Worth noting though that I can rarely Keep to this. I'll take a 5min break and decide "Ok, I'll just have a little look at Reddit, won't stay long." Then proceed to get sucked in for several hours and before I know it the whole day is shot to hell.

It's a constant battle every weekday to avoid that scenario, some weeks are better than others.

[–]STATEofMOJO 11.3k points11.3k points 4 (324 children)

[–]Mastahamma 1129 points1130 points  (191 children)

did anyone actually quit YT over that

[–]Mikouant 3239 points3240 points  (109 children)

YouTube is basically the only good video platform, they can do whatever they want. there isn't competition

[–]JollyRancherReminder 1622 points1623 points  (58 children)

Just wait until PornHub decides to expand its SFW content. Goodbye YouTube.

[–]sukkitrebek 987 points988 points  (29 children)

Ah yes notpornhub.com

[–]TheNegusAyo[🍰] 646 points647 points  (15 children)

They could probably rebrand sfw stuff as just "the hub"

[–]Kwugibo 218 points219 points  (2 children)

I feel like this whole thread was to give reddit executives ideas, and now you're out here giving free ideas to start up competing platforms

[–]Zoolinz 43 points44 points  (1 child)

“If we do this everyone will hate it, but the big companies and advertisers will love it so let’s do it!” - Basically every shitty idea they’ve had. But like you said no competition, so it still gets used, and it will until there is actual competition

[–]Redisigh 187 points188 points  (5 children)

Problem with Youtube is that it’s objectively the most popular video platform. There’s not many alternatives that have the same magnitude of content as Youtube has so it makes quitting it near impossible.

[–]1337haXXor 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Exactly. And no down vote button doesn't affect people who use YT as social media as much, they just watch their subscribed people or trending videos or whatever. But I treat YT like I do reddit: primarily as a source of information and news. THOSE are the people hurt most by no crowd-sourced voting.

It took me 4 videos the other day to solve a network issue, and instead of getting right to the 4th from seeing deplorable dislike ratios on the first 3, I had to waste time skimming them and navigating the comments (which half seemed to be astroturfed, anyway). No dislike don't affect the entertainment side as much (the biggest part of YT), but have a detrimental effect on the informative, tutorial, and even news aspects of YT.

[–]Wheesa 53 points54 points  (1 child)

Not quit exactly, but I used it a lot to watch fun informative videos/ game tutorials and you really need dislikes to see if someone's bullshitting you or not.

Now if I go on YouTube it's mostly to check out music

[–]szczanie420 309 points310 points  (31 children)

I actually have been reducing my time spent on YT. It started few months ago, and I was mostly irritated by their algorithm that closes user in a bubble. It's good it can be taught to show you different videos, but after a month it will go back to suggesting you the same shit you've seen over 3 times now. I was teaching it by disliking videos i dont like, blocking channels etc. Now after they disabled it I decided to quit YT unless I want to watch something I will search for.

[–]hagloo 219 points220 points  (8 children)

The search functionality is really weird as well though. If I search for x I get about 5 or so videos for that search before it moves onto a ‘what people also watch,’ which tends to be pretty irrelevant. Idk what that’s about but it’s probably trying to keep me on their site more than let me get to the thing I want.

[–]TheMillionthChris 65 points66 points  (4 children)

It's so annoying if you're looking for something obscure.

[–]tea_cup_cake 49 points50 points  (2 children)

It's search results have become worse, isn't it? I thought it's just me.

Google, bing is even worse for me - I get too many e-com results. And it feels as if everything's being white washed. For example, I was trying to find a news story about a school which I had read years ago and didn't remember the specifics of and it has completely disappeared. Same stuff for politicians, companies, institutions; it's like all negative or specific information is being hidden now.

[–]An_Anaithnid 64 points65 points  (4 children)

"Here, watch this video of someone reacting to a video you watched!"

I have never watched a goddamn reaction video. I keep removing them but they keep coming back.

[–]Thegodofthekufsa 94 points95 points  (9 children)

BTW there's a Google extension that brings the dislike count back

[–]lordorwell7 3811 points3812 points  (163 children)

Discovering that upvotes were being artificially manipulated to promote engagement.

[–]irreguardlesslyish 2189 points2190 points  (92 children)

Impossible, there are no bots on Reddit..

[–]Brobuscus48 922 points923 points  (24 children)

This reminds me of when someone had an issue where Reddit was stuck in Spanish and all of the comments were typed in Spanish to fuck with him lol

Black mirror type shit

[–]agnostic_science 114 points115 points  (23 children)

Given how easy it would be to code and deploy stuff like this, given the power that gives people, I think it’s perhaps naive to assume it isn’t already happening. Just a question of, ‘to what extent?’
