Devrant isn't like twitter where every fucking tweet is either a recycled tweet or fucking irrelevant to your life. This is a good app for a change. I mean you can ask industry questions here and get great answers and insights unlike twitter where everybody wants to be savage. Maybe I shouldn't even compare the two in the first place but fr twitter is bullshit

    ... except the meme section.

    @theKarlisK we don't discuss that here, although I'm guilty of a few myself.

    Generally, if you have a place that isn't about social acceptance or based around how many likes / followers you can get, then a community will find other means to work, plus having a niche for devs by devs with devs is kinda like the old days when you hit forums for assistance where these mechanisms didn't exist.

    Now in saying that we do have ++ (updoots), but a lot of people don't care for them a great deal.

    @C0D4 yeah yeah I know - the first rule of meme club...

    Tho I know what you mean and it deffinetly is a great appeal of Dev Rant. Personally, I love the aspect that @soapmactervish pointed out - you can ask any questions you might have about the field and you'll get actual up-to-date answers instead of glorified brief sheets with "screaming" marketing mumbo-jumbo or outdated info. Heck, it's worse when you ask a question and get referred to a page of google search results or just the same results... or as in the case of SO - get shot down and your question closed as 'duplicate' or 'too broad' (f**k you SO - I'll keep stabbing as long as one of us is alive!).

    Anyhow, I still think it still applies to the "jokes/memes" section of Dev Rant too, but since you can easily fikter out unwanted topics it's not a big deal. And whenever a rant/post strays into the wrong section - the community promptly voices their mistake to the author. :)
