I browse wiki to read interesting stuff:

News, mainly tech news:

https://slashdot.org/

I try to minimise reddit/youtube as I can get addicted to it.

I've grown weary from a lot of these channels begging for money. It's obnoxious, and I feel a lot of these people don't really put out enough quality, subjective as it is, content to justify having a Patreon or whatever.

Seems like it was actually .org TLD. It does seem to be down though, and unfortunately their robots.txt disallowed crawlers so there's no archives anywhere.

>on another circlejerk board called /tea/
On an unrelated note, I like the concept of ephemerality behind /tea/ but find the implementation with doushio liveboard to be lacking. The issue with liveboards is that you have a few people monopolizing the conversation, and it tends to result in short lower-quality posts. The non-linear conversation flow and more frequent back & forth interactions also make it harder to join an existing thread, making it feel more like it's some sort of pseudo-private dialogue between individuals rather than an open forum.

Opps.. I forgot to donate to wikipedia. Time to set that right.
>> No. 33858 [Edit]
>>33856
I'm convinced Wikipedia donations are a complete sham. There are other foundations (Internet Archive) that require several times more resources, have a tenth of the funds, and manage to do much more. I really don't think that Wikipedia needs any more money to pad their bureaucratic overhead, and your funds would be better donated to places like the Internet Archive.

If I had to guess, and be generous here, It'd say maybe it's the bandwidth. It's such a well known site that I'm sure is the go to for educational institutes around the world.
>> No. 33866 [Edit]
>>33859
I don't think bandwidth would be too significant a problem because pages should be able to compress nicely (mostly plain text), and the traffic patterns would be very amenable to a cache/CDN. Compare this to internet archive where a majority of modern pages are pretty much 3MB of minified javascript, and access patterns will be much less cache friendly. And either way Wikipedia has plenty of money already, at least according to:

Besides rating sites for media (Anidb/mangaupdates/RateYourMusic) and sites to stream/download said media (nyaa, madokami, filehost scrapers, libgen, streaming sites, boorus) I don't really go anywhere on the internet anymore, it has been homogenized into cancerous shit filled with/pandering to/advertising to ford-drivers. Even if you want to find niche content google et al always try to push generic popular shit on you. It sucks.

If it weren't for the fact that there's basically no really functional movie, game, book, or comic rating site I'd probably never go to any other part of the web at all. As it stands I occasionally search around for recommendation blogs or even recs on forums. It would also be nice if there was a booru site for art in general. There's wiki-art and google's art thing, but they both are patchy and have shit search functions.

>>33473
www.comic-rocket.com is a site for indexing and tracking webcomics, I don't know how many webcomics exist so I don't know how complete it is, but it is far better than the old crappy webcomic indexes at least.

From what I've seen, getting an invite is pretty easy. One can get one on HN, too. With regards to lobste.rs' purpose, it's a more focused HN: posts should be strictly related to hacking, programming, software, etc. So it's like a filter for HN; anything related to tech companies' financials, social aspects of technology, politics, and such periphery topics should be verboten. The smaller community helps preserve this environment. However, there is a vocal minority that believes everything is political, and thus such topics should be permitted as refraining from those discussions is, too, a political choice. I believe the admins will eventually either acquiesce or outright capitulate to these people. And as we all know: political discussions ruin everything. Even sites that think they're above such consequences are ignorant of its detrimental effects on their communities.

>refraining from those discussions is, too, a political choice
Even if it is, what difference does it make? You'd think people who decided to use an obscure HN clone which doesn't aggregate that kind of news would agree with that choice. It's not like there aren't other places that already cater to them.
