Well, looks like we are launching a bit earlier than originally planned. This site is fully functional, just a bit limited on some things as we get all the backend worked out. Our CSS is a work-in-progress due to some major differences from how reddit was set up, so that will be coming, it will just look a bit barebones until then.

For the time being we still consider reddit.com/r/kotakuinaction to be our primary site, but will be building this up as a proper backup over time. We actively encourage anyone who wants to coexist on both sites to do so, and have no issue with folks who have finally had enough of reddit's bullshit that decide to make the move here completely now.

Rules are generally going to be the same here as they were on /r/kotakuinaction, but we are thinning them out a bit as some rules no longer need to apply here due to different sitewide rules/TOS from above lifting some restrictions we had to deal with. We will try to get a more complete listing of the newly modified rules up soon, as well as get them listed/linked on the Sidebar and such. Automod is not completely operational here, but will be in the very near future to make that all a bit easier to deal with.

Please be patient with us as we get things in gear. I'll try to keep everyone updated on the progress of things, though some parts will be mostly self-evident as they happen (like the return of the banner/sidebar).

Welcome, KIAfrens. Glad to see you here. KIA was one of my first steps on the road to redpilling, so I'll be forever grateful for that. Make no mistake, Reddit is coming for you too, as they have came for us today. They're already soft filtering .win links (lol). Enjoy your new space!

New reddit is absolute cancer. It's digg 2.0 all over again. Such a shit redesign.

Same here. I remember it like it was just yesterday joining Reddit for the first time in its first year, an immigrant from 4chan /b/, and the influence of /b/tards was still very strong back then (to the point where most of the humor-related subs were all largely just soft extensions of /b/) and debate and argument were the norm. And it carried a strong atmosphere of 'if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.'

Aside from the dark period of getting swept up in the circlejerk of /r/atheism, it was truly a special time and place for a little while. And yet now look at it. In signing up here I was reminded of all the accounts I lost in recent years simply because they couldn't tolerate differences of opinion. It would be amazing, in a way, if it weren't so disappointing to see how toxic Reddit has become. If anything, Reddit is even worse now than Digg ever was, even at the end.
