a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Chrome won't let me add DuckDuckGo to search engines. 1 year and 10 months ago
what i can not understand is why you want to get away from google so much but insist on using chrome which is their browser. chrome sends so much personal data back to google it makes your head spin. there are privacy browsers that are based on chrome but have all of the google phone homes removed and you might want to use duckduckgo to search for some of those to use instead of chrome.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling how to hide "the search engine that doesn't track you. Learn more" message 1 year and 11 months ago
html version is https://duckduckgo.com/html - no settings

what i do not understand is why this is a concern at all - the ddg main page is very clean and it is reasonable for it to include this very minimalistic help

but beyond that...who spends any time on this page anyway...just type in your search and hit enter

the learn more line does not grab focus...it is just there so people can learn more about ddg which makes perfect sense.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Intrusive Google when I try to use only DDG 1 year and 11 months ago

Wow, What a helpful bunch!
maybe just maybe if you had indicated a bit about your environment like the OS and browser that you are using then people could have offered suggestions and help

or maybe when you say that you asked for help before but

I never had time to experiment or even respond.
people figured that the same thing might happen again

in any case it seems that the problem that you were having would have been better addressed in a support forum for your browser

glad you figured it out
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Use all the ads generated money to donate to the poor people to increase Duckduckgo's popularity 2 years and 1 month ago
x.15 was probably confused because your topic says

Use all the ads generated money
and your text says

Duckduckgo should promote its search engine as a search engine that gives all the money to the poor people
. Now you're saying only a small percentage, so it's pretty confusing.

I think that if ddg were to do this then use it as a marketing tool it would seem more like self promotion than an attempt to help those in need.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling "Get to Google faster. Switch your default search engine to Google." (The last straw) 2 years and 2 months ago
why in the world would someone post a open letter in the form of a rambling run-on paragraph to google on a duckduckgo forum - is it me or is there a disconnect here?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Please don't ask about a DuckDuckGo e-mail service 2 years and 2 months ago
who wouldn't but how would you expect them to afford it without a revenue source

your best option is to host your own email server

First:

Okey, first of all, I don't care if I get personalized results.

Then:
Quote from OpalYeah7800:
Second of all, the way it will be is just enter in topics for personalized results...

Later:
Quote from OpalYeah7800:
I hope you all understand what I mean now.

impossible to understand what you mean when you claim not to care about personalized results but keep pushing for them

your suggestion still requires an account just for searching to which most of us would reject

the greatest thing about ddg is that users do not have accounts and the kind of information that you are wanting to have store is not collected

if ddg were to offer accounts and start saving information then government entities could then required ddg to turn over - and I would be out

no thanks - I do not care what others are searching for - I don't want a G interface - the colors are already configurable and the calculator is just fine (and it is open source so you can submit modifications).
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Improvement for DuckDuckGo.com - Please Vote 2 years and 4 months ago
not sure how you want people to vote on this or why

Main page: I rarely use it as I use a search bar but it is fine as is - uncluttered and functional - my vote on your comment -1

Date range search: A Last Year search would be nice and it has already been requested. +1

Region search: Already exists, has for years. -1

Tabs: Not sure what you are trying to suggest but tabs already exist and work great - Images are presented using the IA interface which is very efficient. -1
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Servers are constantly down. 2 years and 4 months ago
see ya - probably not worth responding since you are already gone
have fun with bubble searches and having your personal information shared to anyone with enough money
by the way - i've used duckduckgo for over 4 years and do not recall down servers - you should look at your isp and dns provider
