Reddit corporate's API antics have pushed me to the point where I'm greatly reducing my interaction with the platform. I'm speaking only for myself here, not the moderation team.
I WILL continue to actively engage with r/ada, as it's one of the handful of Ada information and development resources on the internet. So r/ada isn't going anywhere any time soon.
Personally, I've unjoined all subreddits other than this one, a few other highly niche subreddits (which have pretty much zero traffic) I created, and a couple regional ones. Outside of r/ada I will not be posting to Reddit, nor commenting on posts. I've also removed the rarely used Reddit app from my phone, and RIF as well--since it's being shut down anyway as a result of Reddit greed.
These few remaining subreddits I follow I've plugged into my RSS reader (yes, in case you didn't know, you can subscribe to a subreddit via RSS) which will display the text, image, or link, allowing me to bypass much of Reddit, including all the ads.
First Twitter, now Reddit (and I've heard Discord too, though I'm not on that platform, so don't know what's going on there). Social media is going through some upheavals and I hope what rises from the ashes is better and stronger.
In the meantime, keep writing Ada.
