When I was on Reddit I felt like my opinion didn’t matter. But here it just feels more open and free.

    Here people actually react to what I post and write. And they react to the best possible interpretation of what I wrote, not the worst. And even if we disagree, we can still have a nice conversation.

    Does anyone have a good theory about why the threadiverse is so much friendlier? Is it only because it’s smaller? Is it because of the kind of people a new platform like this attracts? Because there is no karma? Maybe something else?

      My theory is that it’s a combination of a few factors:

      1. Smaller communities mean you’re likely to interact with the same people. Even if people don’t consciously think about it, they don’t want to be known as “that guy”

      2. The first wave leaving Reddit were those most dissatisfied with how it worked, and are more committed to making this place work

      3. Honeymoon phase. People are being far nicer and more considerate as it’s a new platform

      If we can keep maybe 1/4 of that as the platform grows and changes, I’d take that as a win.
