You'll get there.

FYI - badges predate gilding by several months.

Hah. Ok. I'm just kidding. I like what I see so far. Over the past couple years I've tried to trim my subreddits because the atmosphere in a lot of them was a little off. Hubski looks like everything I wish Reddit was so I'll be sticking around. Right now I see it's running slowly so I'm hoping the team at hubski are able to improve that.

90% of the people clicking around right now will be gone in two days. Of those that stick around, 50% will be gone in a week.

Is that accurate or approximation?

Zoltar I ain't. Historically, however, our traffic waves generally recede and leave us a handful of new members and a few seashells.

Makes sense.

Nearly badged this, btw. Nothing gets my goat more than people thinking we cribbed badges.... well, maybe those that think syncretic created Hubski.

Actually, everyone only follows badges by default, which was a recent change. You can toggle that to 'off' in your settings.

That, and the welcome post should be stickied when you join.

Welcome aboard.
