Dang. I joined only a few days apart so it must've been from that. Hubski wasn't the perfect fit for me so I've been an ultra-lurker here, and instead went back to reddit. It was weird seeing OP's farewell post cause I recognized that name. I've been trying out Tildes but it also seems to still not stick as much as I'd like.
Either way, it's weird seeing something like this sparked by something 6 years ago.
