outie.net 2.0 is coming!



I am turning this into a reddit style site soon. It's ready and fully functional.

I will import all the existing members and emails into it. When the new site is up, you must go through the forgot password link to get your new password.

Here's a preview of outie 2.0. Let me know what you think!

reddit is awesome for reading on cellphone when bored to shit
it's easy to scroll down unlike traditional threads. It's a good change regardless, hopefully more members will come back. Although you might want to make sure they don't have any of their format copyrighted...

i really like outie's home page though.
the format is original and it's simple to see popular/new topics while being to enjoy the pictures of popular threads.

plus in reddit's case, because the user base is so big, it's enjoyable to read the comments from most-upvoted to least, but with outie, it's more enjoyable to follow the conversation when reading all the comments in sequential order.

that's just what i think.

I know, I am going to miss this too. As you can see there really hasn't been much activity any more. There are still quite many users visit everyday. I just want to test it out and and see how it goes. It's really dying at its current form.

Chi, it was just mentioned in the past few days. I looked up some info and was able to find something that will work with some customization. It's all ready and after I import the users and emails it's good to go.

I have a question. If outie 2.0 is released, is this current outie going to be deleted?

No, it will probably remain and become read-only. That's only if 2.0 is working out.

I realize you want more userbase and such, but making a reddit clone will just make new users laugh at us.

Im not exactly sure how I feel about this yet. Its true, outie has been on the decline for a long time though. By changing it to that, outie will lose its entire identity. Reddit already has too much content for someone to go through. And with such a thin border between reddit and outie, it seems like there is no point to even visit outie.

The problem with outie was that all the active members left. And that is partly due to the community itself. The outie community acts like any regular online community on a huge site like 4chan. This just doesnt work, people post on smaller community sites because they can get away from that dumb flaming and troll posts and general idiocy. Strong foundations for a small site like this is built on members that respect each others post and like each other.

This new reddit style may encourage more posting and activity and make infrequent members become more frequent. However I dont foresee it bringing back the old active members and it will be difficult to attract new visitors based on the current member base. No offense to the current frequent visitors but we simply do not post good stuff. Our threads are boring and unimaginative and our posts are even worse. I remember when I would browse through the "interesting stuff" section and actually expect to see some interesting stuff. I remember going through the girls or porn section and see constant updates.

I still visit outie regularly even though Im not a frequent poster. Though this site is pretty boring but its in my bookmark section and its a super quick read and browse. I hope this style can change this site's woes. But at same time I hope that the changed format doesnt change outie's own unique identity when it comes to the site, content and community.

Hmm i can see a lot of good coming from making this a reddit style.. Outie can have more catered news towards what outie has always done. However, with this transformation it sounds like a subreddit .../r/outie

But i think you are right in taking the risk, the site is dying and might as well try it and see if things improve. With the voting system, at least now it doesnt look like a deal forum... at least it will be more interactive with the users, and users will feel that they actually have an impact.

Outie is "on a decline" because most of us grew up and got jobs, spent less time on the web.
Hell I went back on Outie cause too many sites I usually went on are now on the Firewalled list

A more mobile friendly version of the site would appeal to a younger audience.
Anyways if you need any help graphic wise I'd be happy to contribute as long as my boss *cough GeneralX *cough doesn't find out

yeah, a mobile friendly version would be good.

I find most of the goodies being posted on FB anyways.. Perhaps it is one of the reason why ppl post less here. Outie used to be the one place to share all the random stuffs we find on the web.

Also, don't forget that about 50% of the outie community is based in Montreal and 40% in Toronto then 10% the rest of the world. At least, this was the approx share a few years back.

can outie become even better than facebook?

Most likely not...nowadays most people get their interesting news on FB and it's faster that way. Also, on FB, the contents that they post are exclusive to their friends so there's no flame wars. And with the "Like" system it allows them to get attention from their friends which encourages them to post things on FB rather than on Outie.

In order to make Outie more active again, the community in Outie needs to feel more connected to each other. Nowadays, it feels like half of the members are weird strangers who lurks around Outie for porn. As a result, people like me dont feel the need to post anything here anymore because I dont care about those people. Also because I dont get any appreciation from doing it either.

What I've noticed, and probably many others is that all the items that were available in the "Market" section are gone now. Will that still be an available feature on the new or current layout or will this be gone due to the Piracy copy act?

Wow looks great. I like going to reddit and just having a good laugh. My only thought is that we'll need to keep the content flowing :D

I don't think it is so much the layout, but it is the content that is lacking.

outie has its own style and that is why i still come to the site. it has a certain level of anonymity that facebook does not offer. members can freely express themselves uninhibited by being identified... this leads to sometimes outrageously funny comments which may take form in reply pictures or other embedded media.

taking a reddit approach to me almost seems like a step backwards. it seems less graphical. less unique. less outie like.

In that case you can PM me your new email and I'll update it. I know there's a flaw in this but this is only way to reserve the usernames.

Your other option is to register for a new account, of course.
