I see more and more (I assume young) people that are bootlickers on r/piracy that I’m wondering the following.

IF, the real productive people, like the mods on that sub like db0 for example, come here, and there is still people there is it really important to have a sub there?

You see, if there is no productive conversation going on that sub, because the people who are productive came here, that sub will die off, but slowly.

At least we got rid of the bootlickers, right? Also, as always piracy always gets banned, if a site gets too big, too mainstream. r/piracy was mainstream. It’s better if that sub is the frontpage of piracy, but the real important things are happening here.

My request for the mods: Next time, when there is a need for an update of the megathread, don’t update there. No need. Just do it here. It helps lemmy more that way.

    Reddit essentially wants to profit off of user-generated content, and once a critical mass of users decide to leave or just not make content it will stagnate and dwindle in popularity. People are acting as if this hasn’t happened before. It has: 2009-2010 was when an exodus of users from the past dominant social aggregator Digg formed a critical mass and happened upon Reddit.

      The only important thing to these platforms like reddit and now lemmy is the content. If there is valuable info here, people will stay. If there isn’t then it will fade away.
