Jotting some quick notes I've observed so far from running /m/scifi for a couple of weeks and getting to 3K subscribers:
- Even though most people will return to Reddit and it'll be 'business as usual' - the seeds of destruction are already in place.
- No one is coming to a place where there's nothing to read / think about / interact with
- The thing that made Reddit great is content - we came there for content. So when it comes to asking 'how can we grow Kbin?' the answer is simple: It's the content, stupid.
- Reddit has tons of free content - in the spirit of being a #chaoticgood, we can grab the best parts of that content and use it to make Kbin an interesting, thoughtful place to be
- Creating spaces with well-thought-out rules to encourage inclusivity, collaborate, and mutual respect. It's working out well for /m/scifi
- Redditors know what's up - they're pissed at Spez but there's not much they can do about it. They'll vote with their feet if we give them a new place to come to.
