Seconded. If there's no existing network of subverses, you should get on creating it right now.

Come up with something better; even just Imagery or Photos would be better. EarthPhotos, SpacePhotos, etc... describes what it is better and doesn't have the unwelcome connotations.

I think 'pics' would sound better. 'Photos' sounds to formal to me.

'Photos' seems to be the right amount of formal. 'Pics' isn't a real word, and some of those subverses might want to maintain a certain level of maturity. But don't go all the way to EarthPhotographs or EarthPhotography, bit too pretentious.

We could cheat the system and make Earthpron that wouldnt get filtered.

But at the same time, we're not 14 years old and we don't need to label photos of nice things porn.

You don't think the IT guys at work aren't on to that?

Yes please. The 'porn' part is just to appease giggling teenagers.

Yes, a million times yes. Maybe we could call it something else, like pics, so EarthPics, CityPics, AdPics, etc.

Pix even? Only one less character but imagine the time that one keystroke times a million would save :D

Assuming that it takes 10 milliseconds to hit that extra letter, 2.77 man-hours will be saved over the course of a million visits.

And that's assuming that people only get to the sub by typing it in. It doesn't save any time for the people who are clicking through to the sub from a bookmark, a mention on another sub, or anywhere else they may find a link.

Edit: I'm not saying that it shouldn't be pix. I think that pix is a great idea for reasons that are not "time savings".

I like the idea of using the word Pix too. But if you start creating subverses does that mean that you would then be the admin of all those?

I would be a Moderator, not an Admin.

There's a limit on how many subverses someone can mod. I believe the limit is ten. Other people would need to help build the new network by creating and modding the subverses. I realized this when I wanted to start a new retrogaming network.

Completely agree with this, I'm sure there are plenty of words that could be used instead. Besides, the "porn" part puts all of these beautiful things to shame, IMO.

Yes please! The whole 'porn' suffix is the reason I didn't visit many of those subreddits while at work.

I agree with /u/skyclown. Use "Pix" as a suffix instead.
