    I have no idea how to use it. Or what it is, really. Can you find fun yiffy RPs on it? If not, I'm NOT interested :p

    Kidding, just unsure what it does, in terms of how it creates an active 'furry community'.

    Come to think of it, it's a reboot of Digg.

    Digg. Self explanatory for those that remember.

    On the other hand, it's still better than I remember Digg being, and yet core concepts like the commenting system where better implemented by Slashdot. RIP Slashdot long live Slashdot.

    Reddit is what you make of it. Personally, I use it to stay updated on current events and games I'm interested in. For example, I check /r/worldnews every few days to see the latest of craziness this world has to offer, then I check out places like /r/overwatch and /r/starcraft because I enjoy learning more about them. Also there's always /r/furry_irl If I'm in the mood for dumb furry jokes!

    Honestly, the site is so huge and the userbase/content so varied, that I can't take posts like this seriously.
    It's all a matter of finding the right subreddits for you.

    Defaults suck, most smaller subs are either dead or hostile cliques, The admins won't deal with toxic subs unless it embarrasses them publicly. My page was mostly gaming, furry sub and few others that were garbage.

    Saying how I'm posting on the wrong subs or how big it is doesn't change the site a joke. I've on there under few accounts for 3 years so I'm not those that ran off after getting -8 on there first comment.

    I got a vague feeling that I liked reddit, and now I can't escape. It's been 5 years now...
    I really like it for reviews and recommendations! For some reason I trust people there more than on the general internet.

    I'v dealt with an audiophile teacher IRL, it was a pretty horrible experience. This seems to fit his personality so I bet hed like the place.

    I know a audiophile mod on another furry forum. Got nasty when told 16/44 is all we need while her defending 24bit at either 96 or 192.

    I used to be very active on it. You really have to search for good subreddits if you don't want to waste your time imo.

    Reddit isn't as bad as some are making it out to be. It's more of a digital decentralized newspaper than anything, with each subreddit beimg equivalent to a different specific section in the paper. Want to hear just about technology, go to r/technology, just furry art? r/furry. The subs for games make it easy to stay up to date on progress, etc,

    Sure, the comments can be cancerous at times, some communities are absolutley toxic, some mods are assholes and the random policitcal feuds are annoying as hell, but it's still A LOT better than Facebook imo. Fuck having to associate online accounts with your IRL identity. FB causes way too much drama and fighting online and offline. My friends and family have my email and cell if they need to contact me. Otherwise I prefer the pseudonomity that Reddit provides.

    When I first joined I hung around the major subs and everyone was an asshole. I used to enjoy learning things in r/wtf, but then they banned all the interesting stuff.

    Nowadays I only linger in the small 1-5posts a day subs on occasion. The people in them are much more friendly and chill.

    I alway's love when subs cry nobody takes them seriously or why people never stay long. I've asked questions on the furry and few gaming/tech subs with no replies with my thread at 0 or below that. I saw two threads at /r/Furry of a user calling that out why nobody stay's, everyone who commented were immature piss asses proving his point.

    I'm thinking of joining other tech forums since Reddit's are just poorly run dumps full of know it all teen's/neckbeards.
