It will be just a fight between our cultures ability to hold its ground vs immigrants that are actively against assimilation/ believe their old website had better culture. terminal users of big social media hate multiculturalism of internet subconsciously soo it is a actual fight. on the other hand agora userbase know better than feeding the troll. We also have a good admin that isn't mentally ill as far as we know soo thats a big plus.
Fr Agreed.

I've been thinking about this too. Alternative platforms that aren't entirely overrun by schizo posts have this really serene personal/human feel to them reminiscent of the older web.
But, honestly I think that means they won't ever get as big as sites like reddit.
Sites like Agora aren't nearly as polarizing or "engaging" (infinite scroll dopamine) enough for the average person nowadays. Not to mention, being solely website, not an app, is somehow enough of a barrier of entry to deter most people.

Those who don't fit the vibe will weed themselves out. I'm not worried about this.
We aren't talking about one user, we are talking about more newbies than active users.

That would be worst case. 600 new users within 2 days or so. Core userbase isnt that much here. Those who regularly post or engage here.
we have about 20 active users at max. Some discord server could literally raid us and ruin the website for a few days. The worst attacks aren't DDOS or bot spams, they are organic low quality users posting more than high quality posters.
I will stfu before people ask questions like "aren't you a low quality poster?".

This. But I think this website isn't worth for anyone raiding it. Its not 4chan or some annoying twitch streamers discord. Also there are no extreme opinions or politics here that would startle an opposing side.

Fucking quora. The academic rejects of >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk and linkedin. Quora repliers are what redditors think they are (smug all knowing gayass pick mes)

Did you know as quora commenter you can hide your insightful answers behind actual fucking paywalls? They are even worse than youtubers

I just want this site away from anything mainstream, i feel the same about vaporwave. the worst thing that could happen is if a youtuber with millions of subs made a video on it. I would hate to see agora torn apart. I love it as it is now, very comfy and chill. I dont want any bots or the kids from tik tok to touch this road. :NikoSip:

Because people got bored of vaporwave unironically. I know this site for a long time lol. The vaporwave subs are also seeing less and less engagement. Theres simply no reason for me to post vaporwave content either anymore. No one cares
We just need to wait another 20 years until there's vaporwave nostalgia and rise from the ashes

Agora road culture isn't really set in stone, but its the product our of collective intellect. Our hopes, dreams, and desires that we dare to post publicly. It has already shifted away from exclusive vaporwave, as Ruby mentioned, to a sort of generic catch call thats forum-theme. I don't know if its a good change because I am part of the change. Sorry to leave you at a loss without a proper solution or even words of hope.

Agora road will filter out all the infinite-scroll addicted zombies via a forum interface. I've actually seen a couple instances where some knob-head was complaining about how the site looks "atrocious" and the buttons are improperly sized. Hint: its supposed to work that way to push you out. I think if Agora road becomes just a tad more user unfriendly, we can filter out the large population and get them to self select for those who should be here.

What do you think I am using? I remember there was a chrome /firefox function where you could add websites as an app icon . I am using agora on my phone , it was an add shortcut thingy.

I've used agora on my phone before too. What I mean is that it isn't an app you can download from the appstore on either iOS or android. I hate when I write stuff like this because I feel I'm being elitist af but its true, the tiktok bros especially the people who think the internet is just YouTube, TikTok, IG, Facebook, and >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk are not going through the very miniscule effort of adding a website shortcut to their homescreen let alone using the unoptimal mobile browser experience to access social media

I think the website is already filtered enough, most normies will run away at the sight of the site's interface. It's really not something most Twitter and Facebook infinite-scroll-dopamine accustomed people are willing to put up with. It certainly took me a while to learn how the interface worked, and I'm still probably missing some things lol.

Also, surely there are more than 20 active users? But it got me thinking, that would definitely be an interesting stat to have. And when reflecting on it, the active user base is probably around 20-50. It feels crazy that we could all fit on a bus lol.
