I've been an avid (daily) reddit user for about 5 years now. I find the community to be mostly good conversation and its my main source of information now a days for anything that is relevant to my interests.
I decided to make a clone of it using "Lemmy". Lemmy is a reddit clone written in rust and some newer front-end frameworks.
Upvotocracy is free to use and will give you a free dofollow link (great for SEO). I will be updating it with stuff I find interesting online, you are able to register and create your own forums (or subreddits)...and post to that forum. The community can upvote it.
