New DiS Review (new users and lurkers please contribute)


#41

Have graduated from lurking to posts-occasionally-while-lurking since the change over.

In general seems more friendly. think the layout means i worry less about posting something moronic because i won’t have to scroll past it now.

Agree about the male skew being a bit of a problem. Also there are certain forms of really blokey trolling that tend to dissuade newbies from posting.


#42

Definitely stand (I don’t actually know how you’re supposed to reach your arse and wipe while sitting on the bowl, with your legs in the way… maybe I was never sufficiently potty trained).

Ultimately I’d rather use a bidet if available.


#43

and about 48 of the top 50

hmm

problematic


#44

FREAK


#45

wtf


#46

Love this.


#47

This is now the cycling thread


#48

Also I miss being able to hover over the thread title and read the first few lines of the thread.


#49

I still do this anyway… a mixture of habit and wishful thing I guess


#50

Yeah, I think I agree with you here.

Also still super cliquey with a ridiculous number of in-jokes and purposeful irking.


#51


#52

some of them are great, right, but then I think “christ, think of a new person reading all this absolute nonsense” and then I shudder at us all just basically eating ourselves


#53

I have definitely enjoyed the reshuffle of dominant posters here, with concessions still made for the veteran grandpa’s


#54

where the hell is @sean


#55

Think we’re largely a nice bunch of people who are mostly nice to each other and nice to new folks tbh, the new boards are nice with a lot of nice new functionality


#56

You should ban the shit out of that niknak.


#57

Get fucked nobstick.


#58

I occasionally look at a board which also uses Discourse and the way they go about moderating stuff is hilarious – any slight veer off-topic and a new topic is created, people told to pipe down, etc etc. It’s quite funny.


#59

Inevitable when a small group of people interact as often as we do


#60

Are there any decent discourse boards about? Does my login work on them and will they know who I am?
