On Gab now

As I can no longer access my Twitter account - for, as far as I can tell, non-nefarious reasons, I hasten to add - you may wish to consider following me at Gab.

Big Fork is on schedule for an October 3rd launch. We have managed to significantly increase the speed, so things are now running at acceptable speeds. We'll continue to improve that with an infrastructure rebuild if we meet with sufficient post-launch support.

Sweet smell of victory in the mornin'!

I like Gab for what it is. It just doesn't have enough Progs and Atheists to argue with, and I love to argue.

Blogger Shimshon September 21, 2016 6:01 AM  

From what I've read about botched rollouts like Voat, suffering from extreme latency under load, responsiveness is all-important. I have no idea what Big Fork is (something to do with Wikipedia?), but I am looking forward to the launch.

Waiting... gab is taking its time to let all the ilk in. Put email on the list for the second time today.

Blogger Shimshon September 21, 2016 6:03 AM  

By the way, I added my email to the line and have not received anything about an account. Is there some secret incantation to get a login that I don't know about?

Blogger Lovekraft September 21, 2016 6:10 AM  

Signed up for Gab a couple of weeks ago. Was 45 000 on the waiting list. Guess I'll expect an email when I am accepted.

Blogger Salt September 21, 2016 6:22 AM  

Put my email in GAB and it says it already exists. Try to reset password and it says can't find user with that email. Signed up back when, got on the list.

Blogger Jeff Weimer September 21, 2016 6:23 AM  

It takes a while to get an invite to create your account. I had forgotten I signed up by the time the email came.

Blogger Shimshon September 21, 2016 6:26 AM  

Is there a way to see your feed without having a login?

Hmmm. Might have gone into the spam folder. Probably (((deleted))) now.

Blogger Salt September 21, 2016 6:37 AM  

There it was. Came in long after I'd gotten on the list.

Not being able to view any pages without logging in is going to hamper growth significantly. Even Twitter and Facebook let you view pages without being logged in. Why is a brand new service hamstringing themselves this way? Doesn't make sense.

It takes a minute to get on gab. I got on the waiting list a couple of weeks ago and finally was let in the door a few days ago.

Blogger Shimshon September 21, 2016 8:00 AM  

@13 What # were you on the list?

Blogger TarjaJu September 21, 2016 8:11 AM  

If anyone needs a time estimate for Gab, I was in the 22k range and it took a little over a week to get the email invite earlier this month.

Anonymous vales3 September 21, 2016 8:27 AM  

Well I''m at 62,000 so I might have a bit of a wait. I am looking forward to Big Fork.

Anonymous dhawke September 21, 2016 8:33 AM  

October 3rd of which year? Still waiting for First Sword... I understand it was the next big thing.

Blogger Rodger Smith September 21, 2016 8:38 AM  

Can you say what Big Fork is?

Anonymous Rhys O'Reilly September 21, 2016 8:56 AM  

Is First Sword still going ahead? I submitted two stories and never heard back.

Blogger Worlds Edge September 21, 2016 8:57 AM  

I'm 37,000-something on gab.ai's waiting list.

Anyone else using Minds.com? I joined the #GamerGate group yesterday, but, TBH, I'm finding it very hard to navigate.

@13 I was in the 37,000s. That was about two weeks ago. On Monday, if found the notification in my email titled "It's your turn to #SpeakFreely" from Eleanor.

Blogger The Other Robot September 21, 2016 9:38 AM  

Seems you cannot access Vox's gab.ai feed or whatever without being logged in.

Blogger The Other Robot September 21, 2016 9:40 AM  

It is so scary at PutinTrump.org that I am literally shaking.

Anonymous The Next Big Thing September 21, 2016 10:29 AM  

I AM

Blogger Doom September 21, 2016 10:55 AM  

Yeah, they'll get to you. Wait your turn! I got in pretty early and it still took two weeks.

What is your handle on Gab, Vox? I can't follow if I don't know. I know nothing about Gab or twitter, or else of these sorts. Not sure I want to, but... I'll give it a shot. Still, as I said, I can't follow unless I know what you go by.

Blogger Were-Puppy September 21, 2016 1:20 PM

Same here. I wonder if it means still on waiting list.

Anonymous Tom B September 21, 2016 9:53 PM  

I still cannot figure out how to sign up.

Anonymous Lord T September 22, 2016 7:01 AM  

Tom, The link here asks you to sign in with no other options. Simply edit the URL to remove the trailing components and that will give you another sign on page with the option for a new account. I did it yesterday and was 62,xxx something. A big queue.

Blogger CarpeOro September 22, 2016 9:25 AM  

64,114 in line for a Gab account

Blogger otwelmr September 22, 2016 10:54 AM  

Im 64459 or something.
