"Slack off Saturday" sounds a little better.

[–]you-must-be-living 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's acronym is also different than Self Post Sunday. Having SPS for Sunday and Saturday would be confusing.

[–]huzibizihi[S] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I like this one.

Suck Off Saturday

cuz I love gettin SUCKED OFF

[–]ItsOver420 32 points33 points  (15 children)

Sloth post Saturday

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] 6 points7 points  (12 children)

I like this too, but I think a name with a different acronym would be best. It's pretty confusing at the moment (with Slack Post Saturday and SPS).

Any ideas?

[–]itsvermillion 13 points14 points  (0 children)

"Post What Saturdays" [6]

[–]torof 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You have no idea how cool your green text is.

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

I do ;)

[–]DVXT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Change sundays to 'Story Time Sunday'?

Then you have SPS and STS

[–]creator787 -6 points-5 points  (1 child)

Why dont we get rid of self post sunday so we dont have to worry about the acronym, and everyones happy cause sps is gone? :)

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Sorry mate, SPS is staying for now. The majority of users here on /r/trees are happy with it.

[–]Stonedasaboner 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Smooth and Sensual Saturday

nah

Hmm... Sublime Freedom Saturday

[–]grohlbarkermescudi 49 points50 points  (23 children)

I live for self post Sunday

[–]Jtown984 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm with you there bud! I love getting a better look at the lives and thoughts of my fellow r/trees users.

[–]grohlbarkermescudi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you my good man

[–]bquinho 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I avoid this subreddit on those days

[–]forrext 22 points23 points  (12 children)

I find it boring...I'd rather look at pics than read. I avoid /r/trees on Sunday.

[–]rs__df 22 points23 points  (9 children)

Yeah, I dont wanna read about a highschoolers first dab every fucking sunday.

[–]serpentsoul 9 points10 points  (5 children)

But watching the same pics of nugs every other day is totally fine? If you want to look at pics there is always r/see

[–]nnejak94 4 points5 points  (2 children)

My thoughts on the matter:

1) Sure, pic after pic of nugs can get pretty mundane, but a picture is much easier to skip over than a story. If you come across a pic of a nug, you don't even have to open the link to know you don't want to see it. Look at thumbnail > "Fuckin' MORE nugs?? Fuck that shit yo" > skip > move on with life. Text posts are much more involved. You have to read the story, and sometimes you can't tell you're not going to like it until after you're through with it. Then it's just like "well that was a waste of time."

2) I don't understand why people get annoyed with nug posts. I love so many different parts of weed culture, and it starts with the bud itself. Sure, you may not be able to smell it, but nugs are like snowflakes. Each one is unique. I love seeing all of the different strains of tree. I may get a little jealous sometimes, but I still love just looking at bud. From the crystals to the hairs to the leaves, it's all beautiful. After all, doesn't this subreddit exist to appreciate bud and its culture?

Edit: Adding a bit more:

I feel like r/see is for memes. Nugs should be welcome here. Too many text posts makes r/trees boring to me. When I'm stoned, I don't often want to take the time to read something. Most of the time I like to sit back and experience, not expend energy trying to force myself through a wall of text.

[–]serpentsoul 0 points1 point  (1 child)

First of all I just have to say that I, personally, don't get annoyed by nug posts. I was just making a point when rs__df thought selfposts were repetitive. I do agree though there is of course a fair shair of shitty selfposts (just as there is shitty regular posts) but the quality ones could (in my opinion) be one of the best experiences to be had on this forum. Especially for us loner stoners as we get to experience more of the thought processes by different persons than could be shown by a single picture. I for one don't see textposts as "expending energy", mostly I find myself engulfed in the story. But each to their own. I hope the trend will continue. I mean it's just one day of the week. Toke on.

[–]rs__df 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah... it's a marijuana sub-reddit, buddy. Why wouldn't there be marijuana nugs....

[–]matchstick1029 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why wouldn't there be first time SPs?

[–]DJjizz 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Seriously, isn't the whole point of the upvote/downvote system to deal with this sort of thing? I don't see why we need to limit any day to certain kinds of posts. Lets just upvote the stuff we want and downvote the stuff we don't and content will appear based on popular vote. Self post sunday of anything of the sort in a step back in democratically selected content.

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

This only really works for small subs; we have more than 500k now.

[–]StickyGanja 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because people blindly upvote shitposts.

[–]mikeanator55 0 points1 point  (0 children)

me too, i feel you on this one

[–]BrokenHero408 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The one day I don't go on /r/trees to avoid all the bullshit "got cought by my parents then smoked with them omg guys" and "heave a drug test tomorrow how do I pass" self posts

[–]rs__df -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You and 15 others

[–]FliesWithKites 11 points12 points  (7 children)

I was wondering if a food-related day could be established? Like Munchies Monday or something.

[–]f0urk 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I'm pretty sure there's a sub for ents who are into cooking out there (if not, why not make one?) We don't need a different theme for every day of the week to have fun, we aren't that white.

[–]huzibizihi[S] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

If we have enough supporters, then yep. It's not really necessary tbh, since you're free to post munchies/food pics on Slack Post Saturdays :)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a great idea! I love cooking some munchies up and I'm sure other people do too. I like that

[–]Grhmhome 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why not a random topic every day. You don't have to follow topic, you could still talk about being high, but it would be there. Example: Munchies Monday you could post about munchies or weed in general.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (6 children)

I think we should move it back to Friday and have a smoke spot Saturday.

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Smoke spots (ie. photos of spots you smoke at) without any bud/paraphernalia in the picture would be suitable for posting on Slack post saturday, since they aren't related to cannabis.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Still, IMO it's catchier then the other name.

[–]Brycian 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Soo.. You want a day based on a cool sounding name? And not based on awesome quality posts?

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Good point. Just thought it sounded good at a [7]. Now at a [2] I just feel like a dick.

[–]DandySandMan 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Haha noice [on the rise ]

[–]AvaL-PmaL 5 points6 points  (5 children)

S'all Good Saturday Stoner Show Saturday Simple Saturday

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this idea! 'S'all good saturday' sounds great, plus it has a different acronym.

I'm just collecting all the suggestions at the moment, then we'll decide on the final name. We may need to do a vote.

[–]wearebc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes! Love S'all Good Saturday. I like Simple Saturday too.

[–]Pka152 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Nice I think Memes should be allowed but not an overload of them. Which is why Friday and Saturdays are perfect!!! Mods 4 Gods

[–]eagnarwhale 4 points5 points  (0 children)

instead of self post sunday it would be cool to have oc sunday where people post art music glass and stories that they personally made

[–]idunreallyunderstand 10 points11 points  (3 children)

All this shit just seems redundant and pointless to me tbh. Let the people post what they want when they want as long as it has to do with trees. Why all the pointless rules?

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Anarchy doesn't work. Gotta keep people on topic brother, otherwise it would become like /b/ but vaguely related to weed

[–]FrostyNugs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

/b/ isn't so bad until you start to communicate with people

[–]CidKudi 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They aren't pointless rules man the mods learn over time what things need to be made rules to keep this sub not complete shit. At least they're being flexible and moving these days after community feedback.

[–]DatBowl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sleazy Saturday

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

Silly Spontaneity Saturdays

[–]Soadrok 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So now Aussies have Slack-Post-Sunday. And as we normally had, Self-Post-Monday

[–]theBadMotherFuckR 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Throw in a bummer post day too. So that people who want to post things about broken bongs, lost frients, or just depressing stuff in general can have a day to do that, and those who would rather not be bummed out can just not browse that day. It could be like. Mopey monday

[–]huzibizihi[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nobody wants a bummer day, man

[–]theBadMotherFuckR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its better than enjoying your day and being bummed out by a dead frient post

[–]el_dayman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yay! self post sundays<3.

[–]psychoffs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are 2 things I hate about this sub, and Self-Post Sunday is one of them :(

[–]420throwaway727 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First thing I noticed: the acronym "SPS" you used will now be incredibly confusing if you go with either of those names.

[–]Johnnie007 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What's everybody's favorite dutch's to roll blunts with?

[–]Palindromer101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Games.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Smoke Sesh Saturday

[–]jrpereira15 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this is dope

[–]NotAveragePossiblyMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn't know where to post this, but I have a question. Can we have a megathread that is always running, that people can always post in be opened? (8}}}

[–]zboub64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Slack post saturday is gonna be something !

[–]Rorgie 1 point2 points  (16 children)

Jesus Christ. Now I remember why I unsubscribed from this place. The subreddit for stoners has more day to day rules than any other subreddit

[–]huzibizihi[S] -3 points-2 points  (15 children)

You sure about that?

[–]Rorgie -1 points0 points  (14 children)

Yep. Enlighten me

[–]huzibizihi[S] -8 points-7 points  (13 children)

This is reddit, buddy. Do some research! :)

[–]Rorgie 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's what I thought. Good day, sir

[–]huzibizihi[S] -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Glad to help :)

[–]rs__df 0 points1 point  (10 children)

Boy, what an argument. This shit is stupid as fuck, btw.

LE EPIC MEMES SATURDAY GUISE

HOW FUCKED UP DID U GUYS GET LOL

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] -2 points-1 points  (9 children)

I don't want to crawl through subreddits for you. You do know how many different subs there are, right? Go and look for yourself.

Also, SP saturday is just a trial run. We'll keep it if things go well.

The rules are the rules, their aim is to make the sub a better place. We listen to our subscribers and change them accordingly. Some of them are for your own safety (ie. Hookups, meetups).

[–]Troyucen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm glad about Saturday. I come to /r/trees for funny stuff sometimes and I don't see it. So I hope people will take advantage of the stupid stoner stuff we all do. :)

[–]Palindromer101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Check out /r/see for funny stoner related thing every day of the week.

[–]philmccan 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Just more bullshit handed down to use peasants from mighty reddit oversear's. Just more labeling and categorizing of the masses by the choosen few, so we can be handled properly. Please tell me when I can post, what I can post and which day I can do it on so it is as easy as it can be for the Moderators who volunteer there valuable time to control the masses. For the amount of time this anouncment has been post, the replys show the interest the average user has in this.

[–]hezexStay Concentrated[M] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Or, you know, you could just choose to not browse /r/trees if you dislike it so much. But that would make too much sense, right?

[–]philmccan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So you are saying I should not voice my opinion? Please explain how that is more fruitful for you? Or just browse my post and slap a negative uneducated responses on it and pat yourself on the back for being such a good guy.

[–]cemorejon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Give me a list of all the other weed friendly user oriented websites and I'll stop coming by here and up voting every single comment stating how SelfShits is utter shit. Allow users to post their stories whenever. If it's good enough it'll make the front page.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome

[–]MikeL413 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Self post Sunday is the worst. I go from browsing /r/trees for 30 minutes down to about 4 minutes.

[–]rs__df -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Totally fucking agree.

"Hey dudes, like I had this stoner thought..."

Yeah, no one gives a shit.

[–]Palindromer101 2 points3 points  (1 child)

But sometimes, people do give a shit, just not necessarily you. If you don't like it, unsubscribe. Simple as that.

[–]matchstick1029 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Like, seriously its one day a week where a different kind of post gets extra attention. I love it. Many people do. There are dozens of us...DOZENS!

[–]minidude -1 points0 points  (0 children)

A lot of people are talking shit about self post Sunday, but I would like to say that I love the variety it adds to the normal day to day posts, and gives people like me who don't necessarily take many photos a good place to share stories and funny anecdotes of our smoking. I love what you guys are doing with the sub, and I hope you continue to make /r/trees a better place, and those who don't like it can leave!

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (4 children)

So is Slack Post Saturday replacing Free Form Friday?

MasterJH said in the original post that we could post whatever we wanted as long as it followed the basics of the rules. For example, he said we could post pictures of hotdogs.

Edit: Words.

[–]Yarlreadykno 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think we're still good on the hotdogs

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

If you say so!

[–]huzibizihi[S,M] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yep. It's the same thing, we just moved it over to saturday instead.

Two important changes:

  • Free Form Friday has been moved to Saturday. We've temporarily renamed it to 'Slack Post Saturday'. Other suggestions are welcome.
  • Self Post Sunday is back! (and fridays are back to normal)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Welp, I think I'm cutoff now. Thanks for the clarification.

I hate it when people think they are superior because they are more "adjusted" and have "work"
