Same here, something hollow about the experience though. I mean it's been a decade now since I saw anyone on here IRL, but I can't think of a single user name I even would recognize on reddit despite being on there consistently for 4+ years.I basically left here for Reddit. Far bigger pool of topics / users / information. A big factor in my choice was terrible moderation here, like many others.
I use the Reddit app so No dog in the fight, but hopefully it'll be back to business as usual. Looks like most subs I use are coming back online.
It's a little strange, it could all be chat gpt interactions and wouldn't really know.
They serve two different purposes. Reddit for me, is to get information and sometimes humor. Not community. Community is here.
That's not to say that a community couldn't form on reddit. We could move this whole thing over to Reddit and I'm sure it would work fine after the usual grumbles and growing pains of a new interface.
