I just want to thank the creators of this community, but more than that, the community itself, for giving me a place to express ideas freely again. A place where nerds can be both humble, curious, wildly autistic, and helpful to each other, without fear of being punished for "saying the wrong thing".
That said, I'd like to make a suggestion to grow the community, in this line of thought (the thought of a redditor). I know there are others like me who would fit in here. One idea of how to incentive them to check it out is this:
Enable cross-posting links from reddit (i.e. just pasting the URL of the reddit link/comment) but make it cost something like 5000 sats. These sats are placed in reserve for the ORIGINAL post author on reddit, and they can claim them by creating an account on this site.
For instance, after posting the reddit link here, an automated message could be sent to the author of the reddit post, saying "Hi! Your post [link to it] was loved enough by our community that someone paid to share it with us on stacker.news. Their payment is not for us, but for you, and you may claim it by creating an account and replying in this chat what your username is. Or don't, you can reply NO to never see messages from this account again. In any case, please know that your content was appreciated by our community. Thanks!"
