Yes, I know, I said I was getting off social media and had quit Reddit as one step in that direction. Then I realized that I had been using Reddit to find new music and that it was just as easy to eliminate the subReddits that were driving me nuts, so I rejoined. I know, go stand in the corner…
One of the things I remember being able to do was to save articles for later, specifically the ones that I find while browsing on my phone (you lie around for a couple of hours every day, you get bored) that I want to get to when I get onto my desktop or laptop, because it’s easier to work on the desktop. So I’ve been going around saving articles.
So, I get to the desktop and bring up Reddit. And I can’t find where to access my saved articles. So, I look at Help, and it tells me this:
And I say "oh! That should be easy!" So I look at my home screen and I see this:
And I say "Where’s line with ‘overview’ etc. on it?" So I visit "old" Reddit, and here’s what I see:
And I say "Where’s the ‘saved’ tab? And where’s the left sidebar?"
Thinking that it’s maybe uBlock Origin (my ad blocker) preventing me from seeing it, I uninstall that, and try again. Nope!
I try Chrome and Safari, thinking it’s the browser. Nope!
I even installed Microsoft Edge (which now runs on Mac). Nope!
I have Linux Mint installed on the Mac using VirtualBox. I try that. Nope!
I can get at my saved articles on my phone, of course, but the whole point was that I could save them on my phone and deal with them on the desktop or my laptop.
I was able to work around it by having IFTTT add a note with the URL to Evernote. But still, if they say there should be a tab somewhere, there should be a tab there.
So, go stand in the corner, Reddit, and fix your UI.
