        Never underestimate herd-mentality. I put off the switch until today in hopes of a dialogue between mods and admins. Reddit doubled down on their stupidity so here i am switching with the early members of r/startrek

      Idts, I mean it’s pretty rough on some edges but it will be fine eventually (until the hype goes down and people just go back to reddit)

    Idk, I feel like all the reddit users who are going to transition (of which I am one) have already done so

      The majority, yeah. Users didn’t go to third party apps out of spite toward reddit; I doubt too many will have hung around this long in the spirit of some symbolic D-day to stick it to spez.

        I think a lot of people are waiting till their preferred app stops working so there’s still a chance.

        I feel like I’m in the minority, but I’d be happy going back to reddit if

        • spez started be honest and transparent about his interactions with third party app devs
        • reddit provides incredible moderation APIs immediately
        • reddit stops (allegedly) “undeleting” posts

        If that all happens, I’d stop being upset with reddit and instead be understanding of their situation… untill spez did something else stupid and then I’d be upset again

          That’s kind of the problem though, isn’t it? They’ve shown that they’re willing to do whatever they need to make reddit look good to shareholders, the community be damned. That’s never going to change regardless of whether Spez or another parasite is the CEO.

            That’s a good point, though my take is somewhat pointless since there’s about a 0% chance spez actually makes it up to the third party devs anyway

      I am principally opposed to what is going on with Reddit. But to be honest, I am much more practically opposed to using it without a third party app. Hence I have only just gotten around to join Lemmy now. If I wasn’t on vacation and had a bunch of time right now, I probably wouldn’t have joined until after the apps stopped working.

      I expect that the practical reality of not being able to use your preferred Reddit app (which is still hours away) is going to be a big motivator compared to everything else leading up to this.

        Which shows you how little reddit invested in their own development for mobile. It’s a huge factor to have a good app that’s intuitive and fun to use

          As long as a few of the niche communities that I care about can hit a critical mass on a lemmy instance somewhere, then I’m happy. Like, photography or endurance sports. I haven’t seen much of those yet, but hopefully we get there soon! Even just a thousand actually-active members is enough!

          Unfortunately I’ll probably still use Reddit for their historical data for a while, but not logged in or posting anymore on principal.

          We’ll see!

    Honestly feels like it’s already started. I’ve been having trouble commenting or making posts on specific instances

      reddit is done without it’s mods and content creators.

      Yep, I’ve already noticed a new bug where it will say “language not allowed” unless I manually specify English from the dropdown.

        Yeah, but somewhat unconventional method of stress test. Anyway happy that reddit is getting ditched by some people atleast.

    I’m not TRYING to hurt Lemmy 😭 I will only try to do a normal amount of user behavior - and I’ll try to be patient and gentle while I’m at it, I swear!

    Probably through until Wednesday would be my guess.

    Monday at (or getting ready for) work and can’t Reddit without their crap.

    Tuesday is a US holiday.

    Wednesday as Monday for people who took or got the third off as well
