Begging for some mercy here. Unsubscribed to meanwhileonreddit to clear the front page of the excessive posts concerned about what's going on over there. Please let's build new here, and move on. Reddit is not that fascinating compared with all the other quality posts that could be contributed to this site. Certainly, it's news-worthiness is very limited, imo. Bless the coders for this new spot to share. Thanks for reading.

Agreed. Once I hit that 100-comment-score mark, I plan on giving reddit news in non-reddit subs a subtle nudge downward.

I'll help you with that goal. I've reserved my downvotes. Hard to earn ----> careful to use, in my mind anyway. Trying to engage with conversation about quality content rather than downvote because I don't agree that it's so news-worthy it needs to appear in every possible subverse. Maybe it is news-worthy but folks are so caught up in the reddit-universe-gossip. Tiresome, imo.

He's not complaining about the content, he's complaining about the location.

We have a sub specifically for news about Reddit called /v/Meanwhileonreddit . It makes no sense to post news about Reddit outside of that area and doing so leads to a saturation of mediocre content across multiple verses. People who want to hear news about Reddit will subscribe to that verse and people who don't will not. But that system falls apart if we start posting Reddit news in other verses. It's one of the main problems with Reddit. People aren't concerned with posting in the most relevant sub, they post where the people are, and that's not how it's supposed to work.
