I learned about this place through Reddit. They spoke very favorably of this site, so I thought I'd give it a try :)

Yeah I found it through Reddit too. Hubski is a LOT smaller. When I joined I didn't quite realise how much smaller it was, but I get the feeling that although there are thousands of users here, the majority of comments and commented-on posts are from the 20 most active users. It wont be long at all until you start recognising names. I think that makes communication on hubski much more like real life. People are nicer and speak to you like a human being. Endless pun threads are basically unheard of. It feels almost like you're part of a real life private conversation, especially when regular users get chatting. The submissions are not nearly as attention-grabbing or juicy as what's on Reddit, but the comments are always a pleasure.
