what is your end point goal of using dread? Poll

by /u/quantumpoohbear · 3 votes · 1 month ago

title says it all, take the poll to learn more about dread and what it's about.

I also recommend checking out the recent very thorough study done by /u/lydiaRQ on how many accounts used are brand new vs old and what the active user base really is made of...

and I'd add- you cannot unsubscribe from the dread forum, even though there is a button to make it seem like you can. try it and it will act like it's a joke that you can't leave. so many of the numbers shown as subscribers are obviously not really active members.


Question: why are you using Dread? What brought you here?

Excellent goals!

Well, I'm thinking best I could do is "other", mate. Haven't voted yet, though. I don't really have an "end point goal". I'm here to help people, learn, grow, and keep an eye on DN markets and vendors. Along with that I get to chat with like-minded peeps and see some posters grow and blossom from the uncertain newb, like I once was, into a confident poster regarding a variety of DN issues.

Not certain we can limit the categories in a poll like this, and still get a good overview of what the "average" Dreadizen is like. Esp when we throw in the lurkers and glowies and so on. As I understand, the majority of Dreadizens are lurkers, who use Dread for market links and info on vendors without posting at all. Many of those don't even have accounts, and simply lurk without logging in.

Right, you did get me thinking today, which considering yesterady was 4/20, is rather difficult atm. Thoughts coming and going, and sometimes gone for good. Typical cannabis hangover, really. Hope you get good results on this poll. I'll consider whether I vote or not for a while yet. Cheers!

This is my first time on Dread. I have been on TMG since 2018 and was on the Hub since they went off line some months ago. My main goal is to socialize with like minded individuals, help when I can, learn more about psychedelics and meet vendors who can supply first rate products.

/u/partytime P · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

Hey mate! Good to see someone from the Garden. Be sure to check into /d/LSD and /d/TheMajesticGarden. A few of us are watching the TMG sub here for any word. Prashanti posted a few days ago, but with nothing new to say. TMG is still down and no one knows when it will be back again. :(

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 2 votes · 1 month ago · Link

man I should've at least like copied their best vendors lists. I never thought TMG would be down without warning for so long since it was more forum and info based than sales based. great community vibes there too. and I learned a lot about the science of psychadelics chemicals and such.

I just like having a centralized place where I can be amused by the alphabet windbreaker/adult hall monitors trying to assimilate.

/u/crystal998 · 1 votes · 1 week ago · Link

What's an alphabet windbreaker?

/u/m00nkey P · 3 votes · 1 month ago · Link

Interesting the amount of 'Other'... I've voted 'Other' as well. I think it's a bit difficult to truly categorize the people on Dread by their use-case.

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

I agree, this was extremely over simplified, and I think even the way I worded the question could've been better to get clearer results. still interesting to me though :)

/u/newbieforever2018 ☆Cares About Noobs☆ · 3 votes · 1 month ago · Link

I believe that more than one category should be able to be chosen imho because my main purpose is good connections to drug vendors the social aspect is also important

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

you've helped me many times on here! I appreciate your time and care you put into this!

/u/newbieforever2018 ☆Cares About Noobs☆ · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

Thanks for the kind words!

/u/Exalted · 2 votes · 1 month ago · Link

speak with like minded people and learn.

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 2 votes · 1 month ago · Link

/u/Exalted · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

this is how the youngins refer to federal agents. i'm learning as time goes on

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

haha for sure, thanks for the heads up exalted. I got called a glowie by a baby bottle account :D my first time being accused of cop!

/u/newbieforever2018 ☆Cares About Noobs☆ · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link


I had no idea, thought that glowies were a specific type of furry.

i'm in that transition period where i've sorta understood this newage slag n shit but am just a bit too old to get on it early. it's in reference apparently to the crazy man who made temple os

/u/newbieforever2018 ☆Cares About Noobs☆ · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

OMG. This is the first that I heard about this, definitely need to post a topic about it, like right now!

/u/egzod · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

Discover new ways to make money and build up a team of rich and experienced carders/fraudsters. Make around 2m and then quit to continue on something legitimate while still helping people who wanna make it through the game the exact same way.

/u/sd245876 · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

I really want to learn carding. Do you have any resources for noobs?

/u/egzod · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

Carding really ain't that profitable in 2023 unless 5-30$ is something considerable to you. You can still make a ton from banks, wires, checks and loans with banks being the best of the gang.

/u/Zackvla · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

how we can learn banking

/u/newbieforever2018 ☆Cares About Noobs☆ · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

You mean that 250491 subscribers in an inflated number. I am filing a law suit against Dominion fresh after their 875 million dollar booty

Not old enough to vote yet lol but, what category would security research fall under?

/u/quantumpoohbear OP · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

hacking or fraud probably, depending on what exactly you're looking for. security, hacking, and fraud are all very general and broad terms. prob the biggest flaw in my questioning. I realized this when I tried to answer it myself and was like hmmmmm. yeah I've used dread for everything, maybe if I had worded it like "what brought you here" that would've been easier to answer. for me it would be drugs, but I got super curious about everything else, and also making sure the community is safe is really big part of why I get on as often as I do. BTW welcome to dread!!!

/u/mudd · 1 votes · 1 month ago · Link

thanks :) nd Idk i guess i just want to actually feel free to ask questions.

/u/Xanadu88 · 1 votes · 4 weeks ago · Link

I believe in free speech and want to spread my website (prepping guide) on new alternative forms of decentralized anonymous internet that protect free speech.

I believe former democratic western governments around the world are increasingly becoming totalitarian and we have long passed a threshold where it can even be called a real democracy.
