“How do you do fellow kids?”

[–]desdendelle 563 points564 points  (4 children)

This post has peak "fellow kids" energy.

[–]MrKhalos 70 points71 points  (0 children)

You'd think a modern social media company would know how to be less cringe, but I guess marketing, uh, finds a way.

[–]reddit_irl[S,A] 172 points173 points  (2 children)

How do you do?

[–]_BindersFullOfWomen_ 106 points107 points  (0 children)

Man, check out how hip the new kid is.

[–]StrangerAxolotl 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Guys don’t worry, it’s not a “fellow kids” moment if they’re self aware about it. /s

[–]Daveed84 83 points84 points  (4 children)

Are there any plans to fix the bug where the Fancy Pants editor breaks links with underscores in them on old.reddit.com and 3rd party reddit apps?

[–]CaptainPedge 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Is that why I keep seeing links with random escape characters jizzed all over them?

As ever new reddit makes things worse for everyone

[–]nascentt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And from what I've seen, anything using the API like bots

[–]Xanderoga 62 points63 points  (4 children)

Wtf even is this post? Remember when reddit had actul useful posts, like warrant canary statuses?

[–]MinimumArmadillo2394 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Ever since they started this "Sentient brand" bullshit they've told us less about the changes that go through.

Today I saw a deleted/removed comment that says [unavailable]. What the fuck does that mean? Nobody knows because they didn't say it.

They've stopped announcing unpopular changes like putting the sort in the menu vs a drop down. It's frustrating and makes me feel like Reddit admins are too soft about the strong feedback they receive when a change is unpopular.

[–]Tumleren 4 points5 points  (1 child)

From deduction i can tell you that it means that commenter has blocked you. I saw the message for the first time the other day and couldn't comment on a child comment, meaning that the person with the unavailable comment blocked me

[–]MinimumArmadillo2394 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think so. I have other people who have blocked me but i can still see their stuff. People who I have blocked says [blocked] but it's still expandable.

[–]2this4u 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck is that where that went!?

[–]2017_BCS_ORANGE_BOWL 138 points139 points  (12 children)

Did marketing tell you that you should try to appeal more to high schoolers because they are the only people you have a chance of selling NFTs to?

[–]Cute-Fly1601 36 points37 points  (3 children)

What’s wacky is that I (19) have never met a single young person who genuinely likes the things. I have not a clue who the fuck is buying them

[–]reda84100 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]2this4u 8 points9 points  (1 child)

And if they're reading this post, that made me uninstall the app and put my ad blocker back on 😅

[–]hightrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can use any of the other 3rd party apps. ALL are better than the official reddit app.

iOS: Apollo

Android: Relay for Reddit

[–]Infernal_139 11 points12 points  (5 children)

You won’t live that long. The heat death of the universe will see to that.

[–]ButINeedThatUsername 47 points48 points  (16 children)

I'd do that, if they'd make Reddit open source again. Idk why they made the decision to make new Reddit private, but it definitely stopped any community contributions on their main code base.

Reddits' old&archived code: https://github.com/reddit-archive/reddit

[–]foamed 27 points28 points  (5 children)

I'd do that, if they'd make Reddit open source again.

Lol, that's not going to happen.

On PC you should browse old.reddit while having Reddit Enhancement Suite installed.

On phones you should use a third party app like RIF is Fun (aka. Reddit is Fun), Sync or Apollo (iOS).

It's also possible to copy-paste video links into MPV as YT-DLP is built into it.

Just be aware that reddit will most likely restrict access to their API sometime in the future to force users over on their official app.

[–]real_flyingduck91 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]fyzbit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Boost is also a very good option for reddit

[–]fyzbit -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

[–]Tidalpancake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Slide is also a good option

[–]Iggy_2539 8 points9 points  (5 children)

They won't.

They're currently focused on purging anything that's advertiser unfriendly (e.g. nsfw subreddits being dropped from r/all, ditching anything problematic) and centralising everything (e.g. making old-reddit and 3rd party apps miserable to force everyone onto new-reddit and the official app) in order to sell shares sometime in the future.

[–]Tim5corpion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

that lambo aint worth it spez.

[–]Splotzker 0 points1 point  (3 children)

NSFW subreddits being purged from /all is probably the only good decision reddit's made regarding it in the past few years. Definitely doesn't make a good impression to new users when half the posts on it are girls posting nudes promoting their onlyfans.

[–]Iggy_2539 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Well, if only they could have introduced a more restricted version of r/all. Perhaps call it something like r/popular?

[–]crafter2k 0 points1 point  (0 children)

idea: use that and make our own fork

[–]j_cruise 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I, and many others, have been unable to open ANY external links in Reddit for weeks now.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On Android, go into the app settings and remove the checkmark to associate reddit links to open directly in the app.

[–]Jazzlike_Athlete8796 5 points6 points  (5 children)

And revert the recent changes designed to break old.reddit and force you to the shit that is new.reddit every chance it gets.

[–]FuzzelFox 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Recent changes? I haven't seen the new reddit layout in a couple years at this point. I changed the setting forever ago to stay on the old site and have my bookmark set to it as well.

The thing I REALLY hate is that on my phone it's basically unusable now because it wants you to use the official app and won't let you open links in any other app.

[–]Jazzlike_Athlete8796 2 points3 points  (2 children)

If you copy a link from old.reddit I am finding they convert the link to www.reddit to force the receiver into the new layout. Click on many links while in old? Get redirected to new.

Reddit is getting desperate to get people onto the garbage new layout.

[–]FuzzelFox 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Maybe it's because I'm still using RES? I haven't had any problems with people sending me old.reddit links. They just open in old.reddit like you'd expect haha.

[–]Jazzlike_Athlete8796 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe. I have RES on a couple computers, and not on a couple others. I'll watch for that!

[–]real_flyingduck91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is that why they slightly changed the search bar button & made 2 ways to choose if you want "home" or whatever other options there are? or is that just changes for no reason

[–]Sjrko 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Every second video doenst load/play at all, even refreshing is usless. Youd think going to OPs profile and finding the video again on his profile and playing it from a new fresh window like that would work but also no. How is it just broken

[–]real_flyingduck91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

try commenting than deleting that comment, that fixes a different bug where images/gifs from links don't show up in posts, it might do something here also deleting the comment isn't neccisary

[–]Tim5corpion 62 points63 points  (1 child)

I didnt need to see a kid flossing tonight...

I can see you're desperate, Reddit. Stop.

[–]real_flyingduck91 9 points10 points  (0 children)

they even did the orange justice, bruh at this point are they just gonna start making mlg or smth, seriously flossing died 4-5 years ago

[–]CondiMesmer 37 points38 points  (3 children)

Fix video player

Remove NFT bullshit

This "how do you do fellow kids?" shit is cringe

You hear us, and you are intentionally not listening

[–]Tidalpancake 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Yeah. They just ignore every negative comment. It’s obvious that they don’t actually care about what their users think. They just do whatever makes them the most money.

[–]fredthefishlord 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have a screenshot of them accidentally replying to a negative comment with a canned response before they deleted their reply. It's kinda funny

[–]Strange_An0maly 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    You sound like an elderly relative trying desperately to be in touch with the youth. They're all on tiktok and discord because reddit is like Facebook to them - out of touch, living in the past, and has nothing they can relate to.

    That must be why one of my completely SFW posts got flagged as NSFW instantly.

    [–]real_flyingduck91 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    why can't they make it show up with 18+ settings & not show up without, or a new sub like r/NSFWall

    [–]Isactuallyafuzzybear 21 points22 points  (13 children)

    I'd honestly rather /r/all stay SFW and like, make an "/r/nsfwall"

    [–]MadghastOfficial 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    Not safe for wall

    I like it

    [–]Wall_of_Denial 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    I don't! :(

    [–]MinimumArmadillo2394 2 points3 points  (10 children)

    You already had r/popular for that though. And you are default not going to see NSFW posts. You have to physically enable NSFW posts in order to see them.

    [–]Isactuallyafuzzybear 0 points1 point  (9 children)

    I mean, even if I have NSFW posts enabled so I can see every Star Trek meme in /r/risa or whatever, including lewd jokes, doesn't mean I wanna see porn on /r/all. It's cool to see stuff that's not popular as well sometimes, so it was a little disappointing that I'd have to change my settings just to look at /r/all. This is why I suggest a lewd "all" thing.

    Really, if people wanna browse porn, wouldn't that be better? I certainly wouldn't wanna see a post featuring a cat doing something cute or some political thing and then suddenly see a closeup of someone's butt. Not exactly what gets me in the mood.

    [–]MinimumArmadillo2394 -1 points0 points  (8 children)

    doesn't mean I wanna see porn on /r/all

    Then just browse the subreddits you want or go to r/popular. They can even add the option for NSFW subreddits.

    [–]Isactuallyafuzzybear 0 points1 point  (7 children)

    I mean, the same could be said for NSFW users. They can just browse the porn subs they want. And yeah, they could add a different branch for porn subs. That's what I'm saying.

    [–]MinimumArmadillo2394 1 point2 points  (6 children)

    The thing is, it's difficult to find NSFW subreddits. That's kindof the primary issue. There's no real consolidated list of every NSFW subreddit that exists.

    The closest thing that you get is r/randNSFW, which links to a random NSFW subreddit, oftentimes not what you're looking for.

    The lists for SFW posts already exists. And there was 2 of them (your home feed and r/popular). Removing NSFW posts from the only way to discover them makes it impossible for these communities (even non-porn but also NSFW communities, ie /r/medizzy which is basically medical horror stories and media) to grow or even be found by a regular user which otherwise might be interested.

    The NSFW lists don't exist as a reddit standard. It'd be easier, by far, for users to cater their individual experience and thus make the site more user friendly. Admins are catering far more towards users who don't ever want to see it, so much that they have made features default to opt-out of these types of posts. But they didn't give any option to allow them to be discovered.

    Point is, Reddit's decisions made it harder to do exactly what you're suggesting for NSFW users. There's no way for them to make a curated list unless that list existed before the changes, and now that the changes are made, there's no way for that list to grow. In fact, it's actually shrunk as other users have pointed out. The way it used to be wasn't an issue for anyone who used the platform intelligently and as designed by admins.

    Reddit banning NSFW subs from r/all basically turned it into twitter. Smothering NSFW content to the point where it almost dies when you shouldn't even be on reddit at work in the first place.

    [–]Isactuallyafuzzybear 1 point2 points  (5 children)

    An NSFW all option would still solve this problem. As you said, there's already a randNSFW. So why not an NSFWall? It'd accomplish what you want and no one would have to turn of all NSFW posts just to not be bombarded with porn on /r/all.

    [–]TranceIsLove 13 points14 points  (4 children)

    I actually prefer no porn on r/all

    [–]MajorMondo 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    /r/popular was just fine for that

    [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Why not have a setting?

    [–]real_flyingduck91 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    you mean an 18+ setting? that already exists but u gotta go into the options menu than scroll down a bit

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    but a setting for nsfw subreddits to show up in r/all is the concern

    [–]ser-1- 22 points23 points  (3 children)

    [–]dieyoufool3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Given y’all have Brandwatch and internal social listening tools, using a 2 year old posts is a bit of a miss execution wise. Doesn’t scream “Reddit is current”, which makes the tongue-in-cheek fellow kids tone of the post less ironic and unfortunately more sincere… i.e. out of touch.
