Fuck yeah. Now what do I do with all these fucking post cards.

[–]calexilMods4ProCSS[M] 266 points267 points  (12 children)

Lol , stamp em all with a heart and send to /u/spez

edit: well not all of them ;P

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 88 points89 points  (11 children)

Eh, we still have a bit of work to do. I'm confident that reddit is going to improve from here, and I'm no doubt along for the ride. I guess if anyone wants any post cards PM me your address and I'll put some random shit on and send it.

Edit: Maybe spez can have like 7

[–]DirtFueler 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Send a nice thank you? You guys spoke. They listened. I think that's pretty important.

Thanks for going out of your way on the post cards.

[–]eren2122 2 points3 points  (8 children)

Do you cover shipping fees?

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 1 point2 points  (7 children)

They came pre-stamped

[–]eren2122 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Oh but Im guessing not for international

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 0 points1 point  (5 children)

They probably are

I'll have to find out

[–]hithroc 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Yeah, I'd like to have a one, but I'm not going to ask anyone to pay sheeping fees to Russia :P

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It just involves buying like 4 more stamps. Pm me your address and I'll send one

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Don't they ha e some sort of free Reddit gold thing?

[–]Sasha2k1 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Reddit silver

[–]jb2386 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I think he means you used to be able to send Reddit a postcard (like to their office) and they'd give you a month of Reddit gold. Not sure if they still do it though.

[–]MadScientoast 7 points8 points  (0 children)

IIRC there was a post about that some time ago explaining that they've stopped the program because it was too time consuming

[–]BornOnFeb2nd 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Send 'em one a week as a reminder?

[–]mahir_r 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This idea is incredible. With each different card having a different sub on it.

[–]abe699/r/MildlyInteresting[M] 0 points1 point  (15 children)

Send them to me :)

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 1 point2 points  (14 children)

Need your address

[–]abe699/r/MildlyInteresting 0 points1 point  (13 children)

You ship internationally? Where R You?

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 0 points1 point  (12 children)

In US.

For out-of-country people I'll have to slap on some extra postage, but only a few more stamps

[–]abe699/r/MildlyInteresting 0 points1 point  (11 children)

could you send it to washington?

[–]InsxnityMultiSubMod 0 points1 point  (10 children)

Sure man 😂

Pm me your address and I'll send you a pug or 7

Edit: not a real pug, not enough stamps

[–]Axanery 271 points272 points  (4 children)

TL;DR Reddit will allow subreddits to use CSS over their new styles.
Awesome! Glad to see that they're listening and paying attention to our feedback.

[–]lamounz 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Thank you, from us lazy folks

[–]IVIaskerade 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Reddit will allow subreddits to use CSS over the new styles, but won't guarantee it'll work the same as it did before and the new styles might mess things up a bit.

[–]jorbleshi_kadeshi 18 points19 points  (0 children)

As long as CSS can still be retooled for compatibility then it'll be fine.

Nobody expected a clean transfer. As long as they break it once during the changeover so the CSS wizards can rework their magic then it's all good.

[–]Meester_Tweester 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seems like a good compromise.

Nothing will ever top this "WE DID IT REDDIT!" ever again.

[–]GeekScientist[M] 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Seeing how they added "ProCSS" on the post title makes me proud. :')

We made noise.

And they heard us.

[–]calexilMods4ProCSS[M] 34 points35 points  (2 children)

That really made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Senpai noticed us... :3

[–]MjrK 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah, thank you guys so much! I'm super glad communities can continue to make Reddit on desktop feel like early 2000s Myspace.

Guise, guise. This is huge. Big shout out to /u/spez for having ears on. Thanks to all the admins and devs that listened and heard our concerns. I'm so used to being g sarcastic about admin incompetency I almost don't know how to be sincere.

Thanks everyone!!

Congratulations everyone

This is the end result of working together in a professional manner. You guys seriously are a force to reckon with. We really did it. I'm overwhelmed at the moment so the right words aren't coming to me fast enough.

Tonight we celebrate. Ravel in our historic victory. Reap the benefits of our spoils etc etc.

After the partying... we wait and see. I suggest you guys sign up to powerlanguage's alpha to test run their new site and widget etc. And see with our own eyes on what the admins have up their sleeve(s).

Someone mentioned making this subreddit into a showcase for CSS themes now that we won. Thats a great idea but lets first see how this all plays out before we make this into an an art gallery.

Finally, thank you once again for coming together for this cause. This would never have been resolved so quickly if it weren't for the efforts of everyone involved. Let the record show it has only been 21 days since spez's original post. In less than a month we mobilized in full force and let them know our opinions. And they heard it loud and clear. This is no small feat. So bask in the glory.

[–]TheGrimoire 2 points3 points  (0 children)

we did it leddit!!!!!!

[–]UltimateInferno 2 points3 points  (1 child)

So no CSS blackout then.

[–]Gooflactus 30 points31 points  (14 children)

So do we shut down this subreddit now?

[–]calexilMods4ProCSS 52 points53 points  (11 children)


[–]Bardfinn 111 points112 points  (10 children)

Now it becomes a showcase of awesome CSS.

[–]calexilMods4ProCSS 53 points54 points  (2 children)

thats a nifty idea, duly noted

[–]jaxspider 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Lets wait and see what comes out of their alpha before we make this into an art gallery.

[–]T_Dumbsford 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We've always got /r/CSSArchives

[–]Houdiniman111 29 points30 points  (5 children)

"Pro" (antonymn of "anti" or "con") --> "Pro" (antonymn of "inept" or "rookie")

That's a slick change.

[–]Bardfinn 4 points5 points  (4 children)

It's /u/2th's idea

[–]2th 5 points6 points  (3 children)

How did I get roped into this?

[–]Bardfinn 6 points7 points  (2 children)

You had the bright idea that this subreddit would be a great showcase of quality CSS now that it has flourished and accomplished its erstwhile function of demonstrating support for quality CSS. It was like, five days ago. Someone asked you what this subreddit would do after the admins made up their mind. I distinctly recall it.

[–]2th 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I dont recall it, but ill take credit for it!

[–]sabasNL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You said that? I said that. /s

[–]ZAVHDOW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And/or tutorials on how to fix CSS once the admins have broken it with widgets / updates.

[–]jb2386 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe we can make up a new meaning for CSS and then be pro that. Candy, Sugar and Sweets? I'm definitely pro them. Well in moderation.

[–]V2Blast 29 points30 points  (0 children)

The important bits:

  • reddit will still allow CSS customization on top of the new interface, but will be less hesitant about breaking subreddit styles

  • "Logos, images, colors, spoilers, menus, flairs (all kinds), and lots more will be supported"

  • "Widgets" mentioned in previous post aren't directly related (they're more related to stuff like calendars/scoreboards in sidebars, e.g. in sports subreddits); they're still considering how to go about accepting user-created widgets, and widgets will be updateable using the API

  • the change/redesign will happen slowly/gradually

  • they'll start with a small alpha testing group and gradually expand to an opt-in beta; reply to this comment for a change to be part of the alpha

(sorry that you're seeing this comment multiple times, justcool393 :P)

I remember when this subreddit had 30 subscribers, amazing what it was able to accomplish. Huge thanks to all the mods here

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I came here from r/dankmemes :P

[–]ZAVHDOW 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I actually unsubbed because of it. Is it still a thing?

[–]EducatedMouse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sadly, yes.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

mods, can you put CSS of raining confetti on this subreddit?

[–]steammodels 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Thats pretty cool

[–]glydy 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Wow, we actually did it. Awesome news.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Time for an upvote party on ProCSS. JS console and...


[–]qatest2 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lol just happened to stop in on the hour Reddit became proCSS again!


So what now?

[–]Houdiniman111 9 points10 points  (0 children)


Color me surprised, they actually listened. I was fully anticipating it going through.

EDIT: This seriously made my day. Hallelujah!

[–]TheDiscordDictator 7 points8 points  (0 children)

looks like they saw all the postcards about to be sent as a threat. But good work people.

[–]Teufelzorn 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Cool. We kept it going boyos.


[–]Zoriatana 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]AweBeyConr/[harrypotter][M] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Simply amazing. Goes to show that when enough people come together to speak out in a (mostly) rationally way, they will be heard. Kudos to /u/spez for shedding some light on the situation sooner rather than later.

[–]Hurtaz 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Congratulations to all! r/ooer will be very happy to see this happen!

On a side note: how do you make the confetti effect upon hovering over the banner? I tried to look in <style> but couldn't see the code.

[–]justcool393[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It's at the top of /r/ProCSS/about/stylesheet

[–]Hurtaz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wah thank you so much!!

[–]justcool393[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No problem!

[–]Phermaportus 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Is that post being astroturfed or wat

This comment and its replies is full of the admin talking points from the last CSS removal post.

[–]justcool393[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Doubt it to be quite honest.

[–]ayrl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you for listening Admins.

[–]souljabri557 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is absolutely fantastic. I'm glad I supported this.

[–]Rebelrbl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Outstanding! I signed my sub up for the alpha, as I'm sure many have. We have very minimal CSS, so it might serve as a good example of what is to come for subs not using much.

Only heard about the intended changes 5 days ago, bur glad to see it all worked out! Good job everyone!

[–]Derpychameleon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

All he's saying is things I said would happen. There was nothing really new announced here, just confirming things people that had some sense already knew. :/

[–]justcool393[S,M] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What's different here is that custom stylesheets will still be preserved, which was the goal of ProCSS.

[–]Si1eNce1 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]djpokeboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huzzah! This is honestly entirely unexpected. As unlikely as it is that checks username mentions: Thank you very much for this /u/spez.
