Welcome to Hubski walkingbush, I'm glad you are excited about the place. I would recommend checking out our Primer Page which explains the ways we are different from other aggregators and some of our functionality etc.
It is important to note that we have been a community for several years and while Hubski will be new to many, it's home for us. That said, kick the tires, check out the place and recognize that we are not a "reddit replacement," we are Hubski. -I'm glad you found us and I'm glad you will be spreading the word. If you have ANY questions about the site at all, feel free to PM me or "shout-out" to me.
