The protest has never ended. We have been trying to communicate with Reddit admins, who seemed at first to be willing to talk to us, but we are only getting the silent treatment and threats to reopen the subreddit.

Just a heads up to everyone, there is now a megathread regarding Reddit and Reddit related apps shutdown over here: https://beehaw.org/post/872997

I’m going to lock this thread to help redirect the conversation over there. Sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Also I am happy that they chose fedia.io to open their instance and not kbin.social. kbin really need to spread out more.

btw, if anyone wants a shitty pic of a firefox then I declare this one now in the public domain.

Edit: I should add that I don’t have a Reddit account to post this myself.

Full malicious compliance, I adore it and good for them.

All legacy technical posts will remain available so that searching for help related to the browser is still available, but henceforth and until the reddit admins appropriately reply to our concerns, the only new submissions allowed will be ones that contain the cuddly fuzzy little animals from which the subreddit indirectly received its name:‌

The red panda! Also known as fire foxes. ‌

If you are looking for technical posts, we now have an official community on Kbin. Keep in mind that Lemmy also federates with Kbin. We continue to be around on Matrix as well.

Yay for Firefox!!

we now have an official community on Kbin.

To be clear, they don’t mean kbin.social, but another server that runs the Kbin software. Lemmy users wanting to join should search for this: https://fedia.io/m/firefox

See, they did it very right - after they reopened to only fox pictures, they created a kbin and linked to it. That’s a good way to encourage folks to move.

Move to lemmy. r/nerf just moved to my instance discuss.online/c/nerf. Change all your content to be about foxes getting fired from their jobs.

Um, that’s basically what they did? They changed it to only be fox and red panda pics, and linked to their kbin. They say so in the bottom of the post.

I see now. I didn’t realize that’s what that was.

I would not say that moving to kbin is giving in…

Did you see the whole thing? They changed it to only allow pics of foxes and red pandas, and said for actually technical stuff, to go to their kbin. They’re doing it right - making it unusable while sending people here for their new community/magazine.
