Question in the title. Since it seems like reddit is comitting sudoku, and multiple subs have gotten banned, are there any other oasis' like the two I mentioned? I'm curious as to what forums I can browse.

Looks like there's a GavinMcinnes, ConsumeProduct (one of today's ban victims) and OmegaCanada (which is the /r/MetaCanada community). I am not aware of who else has made the leap, though I was told there are quite a few more in the process of getting themselves set up.

BE WARNED

Wait for an official release from the mod teams before you join these .win's. Because the username and passwords are the same across all .win's, there's the worry that some sites are fake and will try to steal your accounts.

On communities.win they specifically state to only trust the extensions listed there.

PremiumPatriotPepe 15 points ago +15 / -0

That is the correct place to check for official .wins, confirm that the sidebar there contains the .win in question.

there is also a FatPeopleHate.win registered!!! but not up yet.

Jefferson 9 points ago +9 / -0

It should be allowed according to the new reddit rules. Hate is OK if it is directed at majorities.

Real shit??

Bro, we're going oldschool with that one. I thoroughly miss that subreddit.

PS: don't sign up for anything that the admins haven't approved. I'm sure triggered jannies are out there trying to steal your password.

You can see which ones are real by using the list in the sidebar here: https://communities.win/

I used it a lot and as far as I can tell, nothing. They were a quickly growing sub who made fun of consumer society and big brands pandering to people.

Remember that the bans were spurred by multi-million dollar advertisers threatening to pull ads if sites like Reddit, Facebook, etc don't ban who they want. These companies definitely don't want people encouraging you to be critical of big brands.

darthskids 5 points ago +5 / -0

Shitting on their pandering must be the ultimate corporate sin. To be fair, it must be surprising to see how many people eat that shit up. I wouldn't want anyone with a brain wandering in and fucking with my herd of unthinking consoomers either.

Probably posted the “dear [insert minority here], on this [day/month] that is special to you, we want you to know that we care about you. That is why we are adding your [flag/symbol] to our social media accounts and websites. Sincerely, [major brand]” meme and that was considered hateful.

It's along the right sidebar. There are just a few.

Edit: It's on desktop - the mobile site doesnt have sidebar

LittleRedRidingPills 7 points ago +7 / -0

Ah, thanks. Turns out, the sidebar only shows up if my browser is expanded wide enough.

I really hope this opens up to be a full Reddit replacement. Even the technology and science subreddits are fucking packed with orange man bad bullshit over there. I dont need or want a right wing safespace, Im not even politically on the right. I just dont want far left communist bullshit, political correctness, and woke bullshit thrown at my face everywhere.

edit: man, I really need a thesaurus. I wrote "bullshit" 3 times in that short rant.

Benjamin 16 points ago +16 / -0

Can't even visit any of the hobby subs anymore without seeing radical political posts.

Shit, one of my favorite vidya subs made a long ranting post about "No Politics" then but "TL;DR BLM" at the end.

I just wanted to play vidya in peace. I really didn't want to have to deal with politics on those subs.

Same as a Discord server for a puzzle game I had joined today. It was a long rant about being anti-hate and then ended with "Black Lives Matter." Thanks, but I'll play CPUs if it means I get to have less leftism pushed into my face.

dead_over_red 6 points ago +6 / -0

I heard someone at communities.win recommend WE.WIN for an aggregate site. Though that's already taken it could probably be bought, and it would be powerful symbolism. The mod team seems to have so much potential in their hands at this moment. Previously the only real Reddit competitor was Voat but thedonald.win has already soared past them in traffic (since /r/the_donald was so big). If this kotakuinaction.win manages to truly replace the subreddit and they poach more popular subreddits (/r/WatchRedditDie, /r/Conspiracy, the dark humor subs etc.), it could be the biggest competition Reddit ever had.

Completely understandable; you were talking about Reddit.

3
Kraotic 3 points ago +3 / -0

Well, I think you could have used bullshit a bit more. I mean you typed Reddit, safespace, and political correctness instead of bullshit so I admire your restraint.

i certainly hope so. I dont hate fat people at all, but I do hate being censored from making jokes

MAGAlikethis 17 points ago +17 / -0

I hate them. Not so much physically fat people, but fat people personality types who will fight at all cost in order to remain as lazy as possible.

KIA is the first one outside of T_D but who knows how many are in private discussions.

This is the second one... first one was metacanada making omegacanada.win

AuEllai 18 points ago +18 / -0

Most of the Kia2 folks are planning on coming over sooner than later. I'm not sure if they're going to keep their own blackjack and hookers with a kia2.win or rejoin the fold now that (hopefully) there's less excuse for the iron-fisted (and understandable) moderation and removals. I tend to hang out over there more since they're more active and a bit more general, but I'd love to see the band get back together again.

8
Cole_Dedhand 8 points ago +8 / -0

What exactly is the difference between the two? I ended up joining kia2 after the_donald quarantine and I didn't know about kia until recently.

12
AuEllai 12 points ago +12 / -0

Mostly just usual internet drama. Kia wanted to be way more restrictive about posts, made a poll to see how restrictive they should be, and then went against what the users voted for and got all restrictive anyways. Lots of users were unhappy and formed Kia2.

They're a lot less restrictive (and more active) so it's way more general culture-war stuff compared to Kia-prime which sticks largely to video games and things tangential to video games. The mods for the most part disagree on moderation and what Kia should be, so I expect we'll have two different .win sites as well.

5
Cole_Dedhand 5 points ago +5 / -0

I think both subs should work harmoniously as long as the mods allow freedom of speech.

2
XCorneliusX 2 points ago +2 / -0

There are no spez restrictions here. Rules are simple and are pretty much, no doxx and no US law breaking.

2
MakeAmericaLegendary 2 points ago +2 / -0

The mods said in td.win that they won't be choosing sides and implied that both subs get siphoned into kia.win.

17
XCorneliusX 17 points ago +17 / -0

https://consumeproduct.win/ was added today as well.

16
Aurondarklord 16 points ago +16 / -0

I know at least metacanada did so far.

15
WassermanSchultz 15 points ago +15 / -0

metacanada is in here. http://omegacanada.win

That's it so far, but expect more incoming.

psst: fatpeoplehate has been registered under a .win domain...

I'm hoping the gals at Gender Critical will. I've been over there explaining in the guy version how all censorship is bad. You can find common ground in one thing...freedom of speech.

They also taught me the meaning of the phrase "peak trans," which was great.

The one I miss is r/itsafetish . It used their own words and comments and painted a picture that was... well, less than pretty. And not sanitized thoroughly.

https://communities.win/ is the update list and to the right is the win list of wins.

you literally just have to link them together and you have a reddit and 4chan competitor.

Is there any plan to bring the children of the diaspora under one site as subwins? Because that would eliminated the password problem. Win.win? All.win? Free.win? You.win? We.win? Everybody.win?

2
krzyzowiec 2 points ago +2 / -0

I've read that they're working on having you auto-login to other wins if you are logged in to one of them. That should fix the issue when they get it done.

2
DennJW 2 points ago +2 / -0

That would be super fucking cool. I really care about issues like this. The access to platforms that normal people have, is really poor right now.

I even have a post out about trouble with Parler. I wish these issues had never come to us. I wish reddit hadn't died. I wish twitter hadn't been cancer.

Looks like maybe I'm adding Parler to that list of "I wish they hadn't".

I'm considering trying to do a skateboarding domain with more of the cool skate clips and less of the trying to get white skaters sacked by their sponsors. I would've never thought the culture wars would hit skating but luckily it hasn't affected my real life skate crew.

PepisMaximus 3 points ago +3 / -0

They appear to be gathering them into an "all" type site called Communities.win So far we have:

  • TheDonald.win
  • OmegaCanada.win
  • GavinMcInnes.win
  • ConsumeProduct.win
  • KotakuInAction.win
