I still like reddit and hope that it doesn't die. Though I am embracing sites like voat and hubski. Just like you I came here because voat was down and I am really enjoying it. I don't think sites like reddit should have an internet monopoly and it was bound to eventually find real competition on the internet. So, I think sites like Hubski are great because they are fresh and new. I personally will continue to go to reddit for /r/hfy and other smaller subreddits I have grown accustomed to.

I'm the same way here, except I am avoiding Voat. That place seems rather toxic at first glance; I'm trying to get away from such negative communities. At least reddit's smaller communities are still decent places, but from what I am reading so far, Hubski seems quite free from those who try to out-salt each other.

I've been avoiding Voat as well. It just seems like it's just a place for people to whine about Reddit on a place where literally everyone hates it, even though they get back on it and go on about how they're "so done with Reddit and totally going to Voat and never coming back". On top of that, it's largely made up of /r/conspiracy nuts and /r/fatpeoplehate supporters, which are two groups I've been trying to distance myself from.

This place seems really nice, though. Sure, there's a lot of discussion about Reddit, but I think it's because everything's still fresh. It's like a normal break-up: you talk about it a lot at first, but then you move on.
