article: /r/vandwellers hit 500k subscribers yesterday

/r/vandwellers is a subreddit (like a subforum on a forum). I had no idea it had that many folks reading it.  The majority are likely van-curious,  but there is a rocky core of ‘dwellers.  :-)

I prefer reddit to forums because it is more poster friendly:

  • easier to up/downvote posts

  • ability to edit posts

  • ability to use tools like Reddit Enhancement Suite to extend functionality

  • and, to misquote de Laclos, “even the worst subreddit is less trouble than a forum owner”
