2/20/2013 22:18:58Split /r/minimalism into separate subredditsIts a good idea to free up some clutter. Some posts are art, some are text posts and it can seem a little cluttered together some days.
21
2/20/2013 22:20:43Split /r/minimalism into separate subredditsI think this is really the only way forward.

The logical divisions would seem to be:

i) 'Pure' minimalism: the philosophical / lifestyle aspect of it. Ie what minimalism has to give as a lifestyle; advice to newbies embarking on the journey, that kind of thing. Perhaps this is my bias, but I'd regard this as the natural core of the topic.

ii) Technological minimalism: the endless (and repetitive) minimalism wallpaper posts. I'm not sure whether these are of interest to anybody, actually, but they should certainly be segregated (and subsumed into a broader rubric, such as technology).

iii) Design minimalism: interior design. Again, the repetitive look at my apartment posts, which seem to have their own captive audience.

I absolutely love this subreddit (it's my homepage!) but I do think that this would help.

2/20/2013 22:25:30Split /r/minimalism into separate subredditsI am into the lifestyle choice part, and would be okay having to click through a few things to get to the design subreddit if needed. Thanks.

2/20/2013 22:41:59Keep /r/minimalism as it isMinimalism is all about inspiration, inspiring people to take a change and live the lifestyle that they actually want to. Pictures and stories and shit all have the capacity to inspire, that's why I say keep it as one.
34
2/20/2013 22:47:21Keep /r/minimalism as it isI think the only moderation needed is to remove posts that continue to attack people's views of minimalism or question the appropriateness of submissions that are perfectly acceptable based on the subreddit's criteria as stated on the sidebar.

There's nothing stopping people from creating their own subreddits to cover more specific aspects of minimalism content. But many have, and they ultimately fail (or at least fail to see the kind of traffic and activity that /r/minimalism attracts). There's a reason /r/minimalism is as successful as it is, and I think it's because people generally enjoy the subreddit exactly as it is today.

Don't let a few bad apples spoil the bunch. It may feel like a growing number of people are "complaining", but I think it's a definite minority. Nobody has the right to never have to see things they don't want to see, and everyone should be accepting of different perspectives on minimalism or find another place to browse/share.

2/20/2013 23:07:45Keep /r/minimalism as it isI like both design and philosophical minimalism. I'm not a huge fan of the "this is my desktop/iPad/phone" posts though.
51
2/20/2013 23:08:27Keep /r/minimalism as it isPicture posts: No changes. I like seeing what other people consider minimalism. Stuff is a very personal choice, and I love to see what makes other people happy! I get great ideas from big white spaces, and small wooden ones.

Text posts: No changes. Again, minimizing is different for everyone, and I enjoy seeing all different kinds, as well as putting in my two cents.

I would agree that some moderation would be good, as far as naysayers that think their way is the only way.

2/20/2013 23:18:49Frankly, good sir, I couldn't care lessThe weekly reflective post by the douchebag who thinks he is more enlightened than everyone else, regurgitating bullshit about the meaning of minimalism. This is that same guy who opens with: "The problems with r/minimalism..." I would like to list all of the users that have done this, but the cuntys don't deserve to know that they are complete and utter fucks, I want them to go on with their lives believing that they are the smartest and most thought-provoking shit spitters, never truly being enlightened.

And of course, I am most definitely suggesting that I am the true Buddha of this subreddit. Everyone else can go fuck themselves. <===3

Posts that art-centered get downovet by people who pursue minimalist lifestyle, as it clashes with their psychology.
Posts that are minimalist-lifestyle centered get downvoted by people who seek minimalism in art, as it clashes with the theory of minimalism

I think it's a good idea, if it's well publicised and we can get enough users over on the 2nd sub from the beginning.
