I really enjoyed browsing /r/askhistorians. It exists here, but it's not nearly as active. I don't have much to add to it as I'm not incredibly knowledgeable, but I wish more people did...I still check in frequently with upvoats to try and encourage posters, and I'm hopeful that things will start picking up.

Apologies for the double post, but have you tried /v/historyanecdotes ? I just found it a few minutes ago :)

No, but I'm now subscribed. Thanks for the suggestion! Hopefully it will help to fill the nerd shaped hole in my heart.

I always found the concept of that sub on Reddit interesting, but the content a little too dry for me. (half-pun not really intended but I'm gonna run with it)

I'm not very knowledgeable either when it comes to history, but I've just subscribed to /v/askhistorians :)

All of the small subs, unfortunately. Anything that wasn't a major sub over there is effectively/completely nonexistent here.

Agreed, but at least the big subs here are no where near as shitty as over there.

Yeah for the most part I tend to agree, also I've noticed the front page here seems to favour the bigger subverses, and threads seem to hang around a little too long, maybe that's something that could be tweaked. (rank by upvoats divided by subscribers, that kind of thing?)

my tiny troll subs still exist here, oddly enough. though there's practically no activity on em.

I don't really miss any content, just activity. Some of the verses I'm subbed to are nowhere near as active as their subreddit cousins. I know it falls to me to contribute in their stead. I find myself to be more of a commenter or lurker though, so I have trouble picking up the slack.

I'm also a commenter / lurker by nature but I'm trying to break that habit and make an effort to get things moving here a bit :)

For me it's a problem with how the subs are balanced on my front page. Smaller subs never even make it to the top 5 pages. I have to go look at them individually to ever see anything in them.

That's the hardest part about contributing. If a sub is dead the way to fix it is to contribute. Get it to show up on /v/all. But it's hard contributing to a place you know isn't going to respond.

I really miss /r/MyFavoritePornstars. Which is why I made /v/MyFavoritePornstars.

Haha well played :) Although I'm English so I have to take issue with your spelling of favourite :P

Make your own sub, it can be exclusively about British porn stars....

Where is Sasha Grey, Tanner Mayes, and Sunny Lane? I guess I should get posting.

Well it is called /v/MyFavoritePornstars, not /v/YourFavoritePornstars. lol

Mainly I miss the smaller communities that actually had enough people for constant content, specifically game subs like /r/heroesofthestorm etc...

They exist here but they are just getting off the ground.

Yeah I'm with you on that, I think it's just a question of numbers / site traffic at this stage, although I don't miss /r/dayz that place was a cess pit of trolls. Hoping the voat equivalent won't end up the same :)

/r/science /r/askscience and /r/asksciencediscussion

Ours are crickets and tumbleweeds in comparison.

I know what you're saying, but I'm already enjoying /v/science - I agree /v/askscience is a little sparse so far. /v/space is a good one if you haven't already subscribed, could use a few extra crew I'm sure :)

I really want /v/paradoxplaza to become the great place I used to know.
