Reddit users?

Hey guys! Smiley Happy 

 

Just wondering how many of you are part of Reddit, seeing as I've seen quite a few gamers on there, making new friends won't hurt Smiley Tongue

 

Here's mine if anyone's interested:

http://www.reddit.com/user/unix_kid/

 

Also, what are your favorite subreddits?

 

Mine: 

 

- /r/linux

- /r/askscience

- /r/technology

- /r/atheism

I would like to be part of Reddit. But that site design is atrociously bad.

I agree. I personally suggest the Reddit Enhancement Suite to improve upon the functionality of the site, and I use a beautiful application on Android called Reddit News (link to the free version).

 

The site's design was at first a barrier for me when I first signed up, but the great user-generated content made up for it.

I agree.  I have been looking at Fark for about 10 years and I heard about reddit at some point during that time, but it's much harder to follow.  It seems that there's more content on Reddit but there's more than enough for me on Fark anyway.

OP, I'm also a GNU/Linux aficionado. Here's my profile: http://www.reddit.com/user/Babkock/

If you guys are interested, I wrote a userstyle for Reddit that I think looks pretty good. http://userstyles.org/styles/61439/glass-reddit

I also wrote a "hide sidebar" script that hides the sidebar. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/128945

My favorite subreddits are r/linux, r/circlejerk, r/Minecraft, and r/**bleep**.

I have no idea what 2 of those are, but I think you're scaring off potential reddit visitors by mentioning them.

r/**bleep** = r/4.c.h.a.n

 

And r/circlejerk is essentially the subreddit that makes fun of Reddit as a whole. It's very satirical and tongue-in-cheek.

 

And I don't care that i'm scaring people off. Reddit has enough visitors as it is. It's not like it's some un-heard of indie site that needs donations.

I probably should've used a Smiley Tongue simley or something, I just thought the names were funny, I didn't mean it as if it actually matters in any way.  It's a lot like the other threads I saw recently where someone was asking how to buy "big **bleep** and booty."
