articles aren't really what I hoped for (Score: 2, Interesting) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-03-29 08:01 (#VV) Despite all the crap that's happened over at The Other Site, it stayed my homepage for 15 years. I like the breadth of stories. Even if they're dupes and "old" news (a few days to a few weeks) I didn't really care because I wasn't going to scour those sources and find those articles on my own. I left when the boycott started and have been back maybe 3-4 times out of morbid curiosity to see if the number of comments have decreased. I don't even read the headlines there, let alone dive in to read comments. Instead, I jumped on the SN and |. bandwagon. I certainly appreciate what each is trying to do and wish them success, but they're both a little disappointing TO ME because the style of stories is just different. It seems it's more News For Nerds, but it was the Stuff That Matters that I cared about.I know, get off my ass and start submitting the kinds of stories I want to see. No. I have enough on my plate that some days I barely have time to read the newspaper (which is what these sites are for me). So that's my grouse and I won't mention it again, since I'm not really willing to do anything about it. Sorry.

Things may improve or may get worse.One of the problems I see is that people try to avoid cross-posting stories. Two times I decided not to post a story as I was not sure if people will found it interesting and also because it has appeared on /.I personally think that we need more stories covering a wider range of topics as everybody can pick and chose what to read.I liked your comment as, if people listen, it may have a positive effect on the stories. I also would like to see more "Stuff that matters".However, if you look at the bottom of the page:Pipedot: News for nerds, without the corporate slant.:-) Re: articles aren't really what I hoped for (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2014-03-30 03:12 (#VY) Yeah, but the |. tagline is a not-so-thinly-veiled reference to the other one. I take both Pipe and Soy to be competing with Them and providing the same sort of news coverage. Just without the asshatery. That's just my take on it. YMMVI think things will get better and I would hope that people would post and not worry about cross-posting stories.
