/r/ZeroWaste has passed 25,000 subscribers! What can we do to continue improving? by ImLivingAmongYou in ZeroWaste

[–]ImLivingAmongYou[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That's true!

However, a larger community here has resulted in a better, more comprehensive wiki, more people just looking for somewhere to start and finding it, and more newbies from /r/all who have never heard of it and potentially wanting to improve as well.

As we continue to grow, in order to maintain quality, it's important that we have active users that report violations of the rules, call out trolling/spam, and uphold constructive behavior.

I don't want people to think the mod team doesn't think about the quality of the community which is why I've had these posts in the first place.

Thanks for your comment!

Feel free to take a look at the related subreddits in the sidebar as they are based heavily on recommendations from the community.

I just turned 28 and I've started to realize that I don't care anymore if humanity 'makes it' or not. The universe doesn't owe us anything, we've been given as good an opportunity to survive and thrive as possible. by mad_bad_dangerous in collapse

because censorship is not what i support. i support moderation solely using words. and maybe that idea won't work and i'll switch back to moderating, but i haven't give up on it yet.

For /r/UniversalConsensus, you switching back to moderating wouldn't make a difference since there aren't any mods on it. The one who seemed to be the last mod on it was suspended.

I think my quote:

And "deserve" is a strange word, especially when assigned to all of humanity. I don't feel I can make the claim that all of us deserve anything, good or bad. Would most of us prefer certain things to happen instead of others? Sure. But do we deserve bad things to happen to us? I don't think so. How about good things happening? I don't think so either.

was a bit misunderstood since I could have explained it better. In the full paragraph, I was solely referring to humanity for us deserving good or bad things to happen. Although, I could be more easily convinced that individuals deserve certain things over humanity at large deserving something.

Deserving is weird to me since most of the time it means "I would really, really like something to happen to me/this other person because that would be good" instead of "they are worthy of this". Who gets to be the arbiter of bestowing something as large as salvation to humanity? I'm not sure.

a lot of luck has been involved with us getting to this point. a lot of luck will be involved in future progress. such is the nature of not being omniscient

Luck runs out when we least want it to, a lot of the time. I don't see our luck continuing indefinitely. Would it be nice? Definitely. But I don't intentionally try to trick myself into believing something will happen by really hoping and wanting it to. I'm not saying that you are but I'm not hedging my bets on luck saving the day.

I think that a lot of luck will need to be involved. Or something like aliens.

I understand this is unrelated, but why is your flair a subreddit with fewer than both 20 subscribers and posts with no moderators keeping out pornographic spam?

Best thing to start prepping when you have nothing by eezzgg in preppers

If you take requests, I'd definitely be interested in a coherent, well-presented guide to solar setups. All your other stuff has been great and your input on prepping smaller-scale (non-roof) solar would be interesting.

Ibuprofen alters human testicular physiology to produce a state of compensated hypogonadism by eleitl in collapse

Yeah, it's great for lulz' sake. You gotta pay for the physical proof (ID card, paperwork) but the ordination itself is free and is done in 30 seconds.

An attempt to graph and group episodes by their deviation from the world today. by PonyToast in blackmirror

[–]ImLivingAmongYou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Barring all other technological aspects of Black Museum, being able to recharge an electric car sufficiently for any meaningful distance with those piddly solar panels would likely take days/weeks - not a few hours. That's some pretty crazy tech that I haven't seen mentioned here yet.

Climate change deniers: how do we convince them? by Dinobryon in environment

[–]ImLivingAmongYou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pay them more than fossil fuel companies are doing. Then the uninformed masses who listen to them and promote denial for free will likely change over time.

Reposting this with a more descriptive title would be appreciated.
