I was looking for a Reddit alternative and Hubski makes me feel that my search was done and finished fairly quickly. Although I'm not here because of censorship, advertisements, lack of news or any political issue precisely. It just feels like an over-saturated place in topics that interest me tangentially and almost barren in the areas of my main interest. If anyone is curious or would be so kind to recommend me interesting people/tags to follow about:

- Mathematics,

- Physics,

- Vaguely defined 'new cool stuff' akin to TED Talks,

- Warhammer 40k (and other RPGs!)

I would be at the very least grateful for your guidance :D.

I must confess that there is a bit of a paradigm shift with tags and followings for me, but it seems like something worth to give it a try. It could turn out as ingenious since on Reddit I had a lot of people marked as friends precisely to 'use' their feed of similar interests for my enjoyment.

Have you heard of the Perimeter Institutes Public Lecture Series ? If not it might be worth looking into if you like physics and people talking to an audience ( TED talks ).

Yes I did, just like their regular lectures on more formal matters they are deserving of praise. But thank you for mentioning it :D.

In case someone would be interested:

- Public Lectures

- Formal Lectures

Welcome, Devac.

If you visit a tag feed like #math, you can see which users use that tag most. Click the 'more' link at the top of a tag feed to get more stats.

As Hubski is much smaller, another approach is to just follow #math, and then over time, filter any users that use the tag that you don't want included.

Thanks :D. I have already joined #mathematics but to my surprise (and joy), there is barely any overlap at the first glance.

I must say that this site is very elegantly designed, normally I have a bit of a struggle with interfaces. Partly due to colour-impaired vision, partly due to not getting the logic behind placements. In relation to the first problem, most sites don't even take it into consideration and it was refreshing to not having to write my own Stylish .css to make it usable. Kudos and big thank you for it, even if it was unintentional ;).

Thanks. FYI, in your if you click your username, then 'settings', you can adjust a number of preferences, including a few 'styles'.

Already did so, but Clean look fits me best at the moment. Thanks again for help.
