I'm still really active in the metasphere over on reddit, but I think you're right that it has lost its sense of community as it grew.

Many users on Hubski spend time on reddit still. Hubski scratches a different itch for most of us though. Like Herunar mentioned, it's smaller and less fast paced. I would say that "quaint" is probably a good description. The truth of the matter is, most of you that are here today, will not be here in 5 days, let alone 20. I think it takes about 20 days to really get hubski. By that time, you'll have much of the functionality down, you'll know some of the more prominent community members, you'll have the tags you like followed and you'll be actively participating in discussions beyond "why I left reddit." But most people don't make it to 20. Hubski expects more from it's community than other sites. Hubski is not fast-food.

Welcome! I hope both of you (and anyone else reading this) make it to 20.

Is there an API exposed for apps yet? The site is fine enough on mobile, but it'd be nice to have a native app.

This definitely looks like it's gonna solve that itch I've been having for real conversations online, tho. :)

I like the fast-food analogy. It's fun to dip in and see the meme-of-the-day or trending photos, but for the long haul it's nice to be able to have a more reasoned pace.

Thanks, I'm glad it was well received. Don't get me wrong, I love a good meme from time to time, a funny pic etc. but there are no shortage of places to find that online already. Man can't exist on jalapeƱo poppers alone! -Well, I actually could, but it's nice to have a balance in life.

Happy 4th and welcome to Hubski!
