The website is crawling like a snail under all this Reddit traffic, might need to come back once the boom has settled down.

It may not settle down. The whack-a-mole is quite strong on reddit at the moment. A lot of people are going to leave permanently in search of a new online DIY soapbox for free speech.

Is there a place one can donate to the project? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I am really new here.

It's not a stupid question, it's actually something that the community has been asking for for years. -which is very humbling.

We are working on it. A mechanism will be in place soon. Give us a few weeks.

Hey there! Always nice to see new users trickle in. Trickling is better than explosions.

Let us know if you have any questions getting started.

Who should I follow around here?

Quatrarius  ·  1239 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Whoever you find interesting. Find a cool post and follow, then find another. If they turn out to be boring, unfollow. There honestly isn't a cheatsheet for optimal following.

snarky  ·  1239 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Is there a post that details users who have lots of followers or who make posts with certain tags? I'm just not used to this model at all, and after knowing about the site for months, I finally decided to familiarize myself. I'll do some poking around.

The community page https://hubski.com/community has a couple different lists of users based on how much they post and how popular the posts are. As well, the "most badged" people are mostly the most followed users. The https://hubski.com/tags tags page shows most used tags, too.

Random question but what exactly is #pubski? Just like a casual conversation forum?

Quatrarius  ·  1239 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Just a way to say what's going on in your life, hence "pub". Talking about something new with you and maybe sparking some discussion about it.

snarky  ·  1239 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Ah that's cool. This place seems pretty friendly and unique. Thanks for the help.
