Let's All Vent About What Li.st Has Put Us Through

AKA Why everyone is leaving. AKA Why we don't use Li.st as much.
  1. Reaction to every update:
  2. I dunno. I'm getting over it and still loving li.st. Sorry.

  3. I loved list. I was excited and empowered by the community. And the featured posts and trending posts fostered that community. Re-listing. Ugh. Was lovely. And drafts! I worked on them all the time. I rarely have enough time to sit and write a whole thing. So I just publish parts? Why???

  4. List drove away The Cadys. Ruined March Madness. And relisting was one of my very favorite things. I like it here because the people are different, but I don't want the platform to turn into more of the same thing everyone else has.

  5. Apparently "all good things must come to an end"! At least I was fortunate to be a part of it in the beginning of the public launch. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  6. I feel like I'm not connecting with as many new people with all the changes. I discovered so many people through realists and while I have some regulars that I adore, I don't find myself losing track of time on the app like I used to. I miss the discovery.

  7. I'm struggling without drafts. I don't feel my lists are as thoughtful and the timing of when I post is off.
    Even just being able to safe one or two drafts would help.

  8. They just don't want us here. That's the take away

  9. This has got to be some evil social experiment right? "What if we make a social network, a great one, and make all these great features, and then! This is the good part. Then we take them all away one by one and see how long it takes for everyone to leave!"

  10. I'm going to be honest—albeit the odd one out—the removal of drafts is making me post more. It's removing the nervousness I get from asking "is this list good enough?" and it allows me to make lists that run on for weeks that I edit constantly. Instead of a bunch of one-offs, I'm posting real-time brain vomit, which is good for me creatively.

  11. I agree with @pili_ervin, @sky, and quite a few other li.sters maneuvering their way through. I'm getting by, with an assist from some of you from time to time, of course. Instead if discouraging me they're testing me. Bring it on.

  12. I don't write nearly as many lists without drafts. I tend to write lists at like 4:00 am and used to save them to post at a time when people are actually around. Now I just delete them.
    And I don't interact with other people's lists as much without the usually mentioned trending/relists being gone. That's how I found all of my people. And I hate the algorithm/aesthetic changes. I used to scroll through my entire timeline. Now I just go to people's profiles and read lists from time-to-time. 😔
