Reddit | Result: Kept[edit]

Reddit (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. Not the article as a whole. The subreddits section is pretty shit. Any relevant content would be better served on related articles, like MRA for /r/TRP, etc. oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 00:51, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

  1. let's keep it so the true colors of liberals can be on display with such unhinged bigotry! --Elvis is King (talk) 00:54, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
    So, I think this counts as a vote for delete. Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 00:55, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
    No, he's for real. (Probably also believes Elvis isn't dead.) I'm going to say the kindest possible thing about Elvis as I can; that is, to simply not say anything at all about him and take advantage of his decaying body as weight on this side of the scale. ~ 07:08, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
    Elvis calling anything else "unhinged bigotry" is quite possibly the most ironic thing I've seen on this site. RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:43, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
  2. I read this page years ago when it was genuinely a weak (mostly by size) but definitely improvable article, and I'm pleasantly surprised to find it quite as much bigger as it is. I'm still giving it a thorough reading to attempt to determine whether or not it is better as opposed to merely bigger, but so far I'm really not seeing the kind of quality drop that would justify violently gutting the biggest part of the article. Also: when you make an edit like this, could you try to have the edit summary link (as best one can, at least, given the way wikis work) to where the agreement was formally agreed upon between agreers to have an article assassinated, so that you don't forevermore have the occasional annoyance of people going through the fossil records and asking you about it haunting yoooooooooooou? ~ 07:08, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

  • I have moved on the talk page many a time to just trash the list of subreddits. It's for annoying idiots to whine about fights they lost, and Plutoniumboss to write tedious bloggy rambles. Let's kill it - David Gerard (talk) 10:57, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
I find this page (and all the "tedious bloggy rambles") useful because, as someone who realized very early on (even before 4chan imploded, I think) that it was basically the new and improved 4chan, I never really visit unless linked to it, so it's really neato to be able to read about Reddit without slogging through Reddit itself. I sampled the last dozen or so edits by Plutonium boss, and the only one I found questionable was "It's swiftly becoming a site entirely made of YouTube comments." ...but seeing as I don't visit Youtube (or at least the comments section thereof) very much either, I can't entirely affirm nor deny the accuracy of it. (Could someone else help provide input on that, please?)
In any case, the last three months saw only eight edits to the page, and half of those were [name unpronounceable] adding (in his usual parkinsons-afflicted manner) a single sentence (which was reverted anyway), ...so I think we can safely say we can simply leave it under semi-protection, as that seems to be doing its job. ~ 18:39, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
  • Also, wouldn't this qualify as internet drama? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 17:52, 10 July 2017 (UTC)


The vote currently stands at two to delete, six to keep, and it's been up for twenty days. I think it's fair to say the "keeps" have it. Any objections? RoninMacbeth (talk) 23:02, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

That's what we call consensus. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 23:04, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
