Moving between reddit and BGG.

Reddit is RSP on steroids. Beware those who filter by "all".

All posts on reddit are automatically upvoted. If you see a thread or comment with zero upvotes, it means someone took the time and effort to downvote.

On the Geek, there is lots and lots of content with no thumbs.

On reddit, upvoting (and downvoting) is anonymous.

On the Geek you can see who thumbed you, you can see their entire thumbing history, and you can see the order in which users thumbed the content.

Getting reddit gold is much rarer than getting geekgold.

Geekgold is far more versatile.

I don't recommend it. As you might imagine, it's clogged with nearly unreadable garbage, as the forum is populated only by freaks, deviants, and miscreants; I would estimate that at least half of them are in fact Scots.

I think I know what you mean, and I think you misrepresent.


BGG is moderated to keep offensive and controversial topics off the front of the site, those topics are moved to either RSP or complaints.

Reddit has almost no filters.

And while RSP claims to be unmoderated, my guess is the kind of material one can find on reddit would not last on RSP.

This is not, however, true.

It stands for Religion, Sex and Politics.

Yup - there have been permanent bannings from the forum, for blatant bigotry. The first was, well, if not a Nazi then someone with a disturbing fixation with Nazism, holocaust denial, and Jews. All of which is perfectly cool on Reddit.

Any answer that you get from Kuhrusty has a 215% chance of not being what you wanted to hear.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

Hard to find fault with the freaks, deviants, and miscreants characterization, though.

That was just the entry test for RSP... if you were offended then you probably don't have the stuff to survive what you'll find inside there.
