I'm truly apalled at the amount of people in here who are taking the approach of "it's just music, man, don't think so hard about it." Seriously, try thinking critically and learning a bit about the genres you listen to - almost every genre on the planet has an interesting history!

On the meaning of vaporwave:

No, it's not "anti-capitalist", it's a satire of the globalized consumerism of the 80s and 90s. Which would make OP correct, since all good satire attempts to deconstructs and criticize. Or at least, it definitely started out that way. I think the community has drifted away from that as genres like outrun start to overlap with vaporwave, as outrun sets out to imitate rather than satirize. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing! Music doesn't have to have metacritical roots or deep messages. And it's fine if you just like to listen to vaporwave because it sounds cool. But you shouldn't act like there isn't any meaning behind the genre.

Vaporwave is often identified with particular sounds and stylings—slowed arown hits and muzak from the ’80s and ’90s—yet what’s also essential to it is the highly self-conscious, critical stance it takes to its source material. It remodels and repackages it, adding implicit layers of social commentary.

Tildes. It's a non-profit forum started by /u/Deimorz, he was a Reddit Admin since 2013 and the guy that created /u/AutoModerator back when it was just a user bot and not a fundamental core of subreddits like it is now. He quit and started working on Tildes 2 years ago.

https://blog.tildes.net/announcing-tildes

There's no investors to please, no advertisements, no goal to profit like what Reddit is doing with its redesign.

It's invite-only right now, alpha testing with 1,000 users. They're still giving invites if you ask nice at /r/tildes.

Few things to add:

It's focused on high-quality content and discussion, so if you're looking for memes this isn't the site.

Hate speech and the like isn't tolerated. It's "free speech" with the "but don't be an asshole" clause.

It is in Alpha, not beta. Right now it's basically a link aggregator, but there's a lot of future functionality planned that will differentiate from Reddit, such as a trust system and subgroups. Read the docs on future mechanics for more.

It will be open sourced within the next week or so.

Expect the invites to open up more as functionality is added to help the site survive the new user influx.

but don't be an asshole

That' such a vague term anyone can twist it to further their bias.

sometimes you have to be general rather than list out all the specific ways in which racists, jerks, and racist jerks aren't welcome

bachman said that his new album is going to be more similar to his teenage work under the name Sacred Harp, more noise and experimental.

if you've never heard that you can download one of his earlier works here.

Now the next question to ask is if this is at all representative... 434 people is not a lot in a community this size. Also, was the post/question phrased in a way that attracts people who feels there is a problem with the level 1 feat and feel they "suffer under it". The questions also lack context.

From your conclusion:

This demonstrates beyond reproach that the existence of the Variant Human Level 1 Feat is impacting the majority of players’ choices in character creation.

I think your survey is not at all statistically significant with ~400 people to conclude that the majority of players are being impacted. Just using this sub as an example, about 0.5% replied and not everyone who plays D&D is in here.

To shrug this off with the notion that it “never happens at my table” is embracing blissful ignorance.

To say that 400 people is representative of the entire D&D community is intellectually dishonest.

Looking at the stats the D&D Beyond put out about characters created and their Race/class mixing, we find that yes, Human is the most popular race, this being a mix of normal and variant, but it is slightly less than 25% of the characters made were human. ~25k out of ~109k.

Asking people if they want to take a survey about how Variant Human affects their race choices in D&D will mostly attract people who feel that it does, and a few people there to put a stake in the ground and say it does not at all.

Sorry to sound so negative but... Yeah

434 people is absolutely a good sample size. With a subreddit population of about 76K that gives about a 5% margin of error.

I don't think a subreddit about a topic is ever a representative sample of that group. They are generally the most heavily involved and informed people.

Probably pulling a very skewed sample as compared to DND players as a whole.

Statistically speaking, it's a good sample size. Flaws elsewhere in the methodology don't affect that aspect of it (that's not to say they don't affect the results overall).

Do you have any evidence that subreddits aren't a representative sample of a larger community, or is that just conjecture? It's certainly a point to consider when interpreting the results (and I do think the author could have done a better job discussing potential errors / bias), but a gut feeling doesn't mean the entire survey should be discounted. It's still meaningful.
