    Today we’re introducing blogs on Redly. Our new blogging system allow you to create your own personal blog, or a group blog with other Redly members, to share your ideas, thoughts and insights. Here are some of the features that comes with your Redly blog: Group Blogs You can easily collaborate with other Redly users by starting group blogs. These blogs are perfect for when more than one member has something to contribute to the subject. Private & Invite-Only Blogs If you want, you can designate your blog as completely private, for your own use (and eyes) only. You can also create invite-only blogs where you specify who may read it. Atom/RSS Imports You have an existing blog elsewhere? No problem! You can easily import your blog entries automatically using Atom or RSS. This way your blog posts will get more exposure within the Redly community – and with no extra work! Club Blogs If you manage a club here on Redly you can now add a blog to your club – and it’s just as easy as adding forums and galleries to your club. Isn’t that great or what? And just so we’re clear. We are still tweaking the new blogging system, so if you find any bugs or if you got some constructive criticism for us, please let us know here in the comments or in our Feedback forums.

    Thank you for being a part of the private beta for Redly.social. You have helped us find annoying bugs and you have given us invaluable and constructive feedback which have helped us make Redly even better. Since the private beta was launched a few months ago we have introduced a bunch of new features and improvements, such as member clubs, blogs, an improved reputation system with likes and reactions, and much more. We also recently unveiled a huge new re-design of Redly that makes it even easier to browse our site – on any device. Now we are making the last preparations for the launch next month. The biggest change is that all content (except your profile page and private blogs, clubs and photo galleries) will be public and available for non-registered members. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, you can request to have your account and data deleted. Please note that once your request has been fulfilled and all your data has been removed it is not possible to restore your data or profile – once its deleted it’ll be gone forever. But you can always register a new account later if you wish to come back again. You can learn more here. We don’t plan to launch any new big features on Redly in the near future, but we are planning a bunch of smaller and bigger improvements over the coming weeks and months. The first big update will come later this spring and will focus heavily on our blogs and clubs. Stay tuned for more news! Again, thank you for being among our first members and helping us improve Redly. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let us know in our feedback forum or by sending us an email (hello@redly.social). Thank you!

That means that you have the right to have all your data (this includes but is not limited to your profile page and all your posts, events, photos, comments and status messages) erased from Redly. When you request to have your member account and information permanently deleted you will be offered two alternatives: To delete all stored information and content provided by you to us on this website deleted This include, but is not limited to, your profile page, posts, events, photos, comments, status messages, attachments, as well as any stored IP addresses. To delete your member account but retain your content If you choose this option, your content will be anonymised but not deleted. Your profile page will be deleted, but your posts, events, photos, comments, status messages, attachments, etc, that you have submitted to this website will not be deleted and will remain online on this website. Your content will be automatically anonymised, i.e. all posted content will be attributed to 'Guest'. Any stored IP addresses will be deleted. Note, this will not delete any identifiable information that you have published on this website in status updates, comments, posts, etc. You can request your data to be removed from Redly here. Once the request has been received, your profile and data will be purged from Redly within 30 days. Please note that once your request has been fulfilled and all your data has been removed it's not possible to restore your data or profile – once it's deleted it will be gone forever. You are of course welcome to register a new account later if you so choose, but your old data will not be recoverable once deleted.

    We have just launched our brand new front page (it's only visible to guests, so you will have to log out from Redly to see it) and a new dashboard page filled with useful information for registered users. Please do let us know what you think about our new front page and dashboard page, and if there is anything that's missing or could be further improved upon. Thank you!

    Great work, team! You got me to create an account because I was so enthused by the front page effectively being an invitation to register that I wanted to see what it would look like once I had. I think you've worked wonders; I really do love these theme.

    Well, I'm not currently reading it because I recently finished it. And I don't think I'll be posting tons of book reviews here, because for that I guess I use Goodreads.com. So... I suspect you guys would enjoy A Foodie's Guide to Capitalism: Understanding the Political Economy of What We Eat by Eric Holt-Gimenez.

    I am reading We're Watching You. It is a UK novel that involves a missing woman. A woman who has a difficult past, and a woman who heard about her plans for the evening. It is a mystery thriller sort of novel. I like it, but it has too many characters in it. More characters than it needs.

    Science classifies us as living things. On the contrary, life without enjoying is only surviving. Living is really stressful when bills and payments are piled up at your shoulders. But we are neither machines nor robots. Humans should also relax and live healthy (physically and emotionally). Loosen up! There are a lot of things you should explore. Don't be too focused on earning money. Give yourself a treat or reward for accomplishments. It's hard to be rich and lose your sanity at the same time.

    I am now working and since elementary, this quote is the only saying that I remember out of all those posted on walls in our classroom. Do not do unto others what you don't like others do unto you is the saying that drives my life. For you to be treated goodly by the people around you, you must be good to them as well, a good karma in short.

    Adele is my favorite singer. I can't explain why. Just listen to her songs and you will know how wonderful singer she is. I never get tired of listening to her songs. She has a wonderful voice, her songs touch heart and soul. Here is one of my favorites.

    Very much so. It's so embarrassing to see him put Kushner in charge of "peace in the middle east." Trumpers are really hung up on the idea of change and "shaking things up" which to be fair, is something most leftists have been begging for for years. They lack common sense, however, in thinking that "shaking things up" means putting an inexperienced 30 something in charge of negotiations and pandering to the right-wing Israeli establishment. Plus the ideologues behind Trump (because I refuse to believe the man has an ideology at all, he's just there, absorbing things like a sponge and letting it drip onto twitter) pushing him to stoke the flames by saying we will move the embassy. With Trumps election, the Israli right wing has basically gotten permission to go crazy for the next four years.

    The rich are killing our democracy and fueling authoritarianism and right-wing extremism. We must stop them before it's too late. While the billionaires flaunt their opulence, ordinary people are losing faith in democracy as they realize that the economic system is rigged against them. We can already see how authoritarianism and rightwing extremism is successfully using this anger to spread their sick and horrific ideology, fueling the flames of ethnic and racial hatred, and targeting the most vulnerable people in our society. But they offer no solutions, just hate and a further cementing of our economic and social inequalities. Only socialism can tear down this rigged economy and bring economic, social and environmental justice to all of us. Let’s wrench power back from the billionaires. "If we stand together against powerful special interests we can eliminate poverty, increase life expectancy and tackle climate change," writes Bernie Sanders.

    "If wealth was the inevitable result of hard work and enterprise, every woman in Africa would be a millionaire." Remember this when some numbnut foolishly tries to claim that rich people work harder than poorer people.

    Another high-profile leftist account has been suspended by Twitter. It seems that the birdsite keeps banning leftists while protecting nazis and right-wingers.This is why its so important to use and support alternative communities (to Google, Facebook and Twitter) as we can't rely on the goodwill of corporate interests. By using alternatives (such as Redly, Diaspora, Raddle, Mastodon, among other sites) instead of Facebook/Twitter/Google+ you are fighting against the centralization of Internet, which hurts freedom of speech and political movements.

    Nuclear plants are a bad idea if you ask me, we have other means and I hope to see them become a thing of the past in the near future. As I've read about in other discussions in this group, it seems as if we're only getting closer to that goal and that's great to hear. It seems as if we hear a new story every year, if not more commonly, about some type of nuclear plant catastrophe, most recently that I've read about anyone located here: hanford-nuclear-waste-site-possible-leak. Radiation is a terrible thing to mess with and has left entire cities vacant and unhabitable.

    We have now launched Clubs! This new feature lets you create a small community within Redly which you have complete control over. There are four types of club are available: Public clubs Clubs that anyone can see and participate in without joining. Open club Clubs that anyone can see and join. Closed club Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas. Private club Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator And each club has three levels of user: Leader A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader. Moderators Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club. Users Anyone else that joins the club. We hope you will enjoy this new feature and we are excited to see what kind of clubs you'll create.

    Hello everyone! We have just finished updating Redly with a bunch of improvements that will make this site faster and easier to use. These improvements are mostly behind-the-scenes but we do have two new features that we are sure you will find useful and fun. Sometimes emojis are just not enough, that's why we have now introduced a GIF-button that will allow you to quickly and easily find and add GIFs to your status updates, forum posts, and blog entries. If you're a Club owner you can now easily re-arrange and move all the different pages and sections in your menu that you have added to your Club. And as always, if you find any bugs or something that doesn't seem to be working properly, please report it in our support forum. You can also give us suggestions on how we can improve Redly in our feedback forum.

    While Donald Trump works to distract the public, his administration is working to dismantle every aspect of government that benefits the people - and ultimately destroying the prospects for human existence. Watch and listen to Noam Chomsky: Trump is a distraction, the Republican party is the most dangerous organization in human history.

    I’m currently rereading The Shack. If you like christian books, you should really read this book. There is also a movie for it but I’d definitely read the book first if you’re interested in it. I really liked the book just because of how well they told the story. I’d love to actually meet God in real life.

    That is one of my all time favourite movies. Really anything that was said in that film is an amazing quote. Red said the following: I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend.

    Democracy is a political concept developed by the Greeks. The perfect description of democracy was given by the 16th American President Abhram Lincon. He said, "Democracy is a government of the people, by the people, for the people." In a democracy, there are political parties that contest in the election and the one who generates the majority of the votes wins.

    I guess this is my favorite quote. It reflects my life and all the thoughts in my head. I am a very passionate person so my head is always dizzy and disturbed. This quote helps me when I am confused.

    It seems we've had the same experience. Games that started out great or somewhat decent quickly devolve into schemes. They secretly force us to pay for better game experience. But we all know that it's not supposed to be this way. I feel for you. Do you know Restaurant City? It's a Facebook game that I miss dearly.

    Family computers bring back old memories. I still remember those cartridges and plug in guns. I used to play duck hunt too like some of you guys here. I like twin bee, adventure island, galaga, and contra among many others. But my most favorite game in our nintendo family computer is the Super Mario Bros. and its 100 lives courtesy of the turtle (step on its shell and you'll get unlimited lives). I'm not sure if everyone knows this trick or if it was a hack back then. And because of this, I was able to finish the game..slayed the dragon and saved the princess, woohoo!😄

    Yeah, and in recent years there have been several big environmental protests in China. Just see the reactions to China's "Silent Spring" documentary. Environmental degradation and the growing public opinion against polluters and pollution is an issue that I think the Chinese government is slowly beginning to realize and act on. Sure, this is a way to undermine the US reputation in the world. But this is also a matter of survival for the Chinese government. About 20 percent of the total land area in China is desert. And the deserts are growing rapidly and negatively affecting the lives of hundreds of millions of people and destroying important arable land. The government's efforts to stop the desertification hasn't made any real difference, and now the growing deserts pose a major political risk for the Chinese leaders. This is true, while China is the world's biggest polluter (since 2007-2008 when they overpassed the US) they still have low per capita levels of pollution compared to the USA. In fact, USA's per capita levels are around five to six times higher than China.

    I am into thriller/suspense movies. I am just loving the twists in these movies and the uncertainty involves. I find it boring when I am watching other genres. Suspense movies will keep you hanging on the edge of your seats. I will definitely appreciate if all genres will be incorporated in one movie alone. That will be a mind-blowing experience in its own.

    Europe just launched a public consultation that considers a total ivory ban! THIS is our chance to formally make our voices heard, and it only take minutes to submit. Click here to join -- let's shut down one of the world’s largest ivory markets. And please do this now - the consultation page is only open for another 48 hours! Why is this important? Thousands of elephants are slaughtered each year and the EU is complicit in this if the union does not ban all trade in ivory. The EU should not lag behind both the US and China in this matter, instead the EU should lead and ban all trade in ivory!

    The summer has just begun with midsummer around the corner, and we hope that you have enjoyed the first few weeks. If you are thinking about how to spend the rest of this summer: why not join Climate Camp Sweden? On August 3-7, Climate Camp Sweden will take place on Hisingen in Gothenburg. The sign up for the camp is open and it would be great to see you there. The camp has been initiated by Fossil Free Sweden, Fossilgasfällan, Nature and Youth Sweden and Friends of the Earth, but it is open for anyone who wants to take action for a sustainable and just society. There will be workshops and seminars around these themes, and how we can organise ourselves to win. The camp will end with an action against the planned fossil gas terminal in Gothenburg harbour. There will be both a demonstration and a boat-action on the river looking forward to, and celebrating, our fossil free future. All in all, it will be a great camp with loads of learning from each other, building of a movement and fantastic, creative actions. Sign up for the camp today, and help us spread it to everyone you know!
