    Are there any sites similar to reddit, that have big traffic?
    Of course, not as big as reddit's, but traffic big enough it's worth to try and capitalize on it?

    Yeah, people are jumping ship from reddit since the Ellen Pao f-up. Damn witch is ordering mods to shadowban people left and right.

    wouldn't say they're exactly the same but you can also try inbound.org, ycombinator, growthhackers

    voat is new to me as well, looks interesting though will check it out

    First time hearing about voat and I immediately checked the web and it seemed like voat looks promising. Thanks for the share.

    i believe reddit is exactly the same as reddit though :p

    i've never heard of this voat.co either, it looks like 1:1 reddit clone, but it seems to be promising, 90% of the traffic is from tier 1 countries, it's not much yet, but it's a start

    Voat is literally reddit's source code with an even less sustainable business model.

    I'm not that familiar with the Ellen Pao f-up, but I've noticed that there a lot of shadow banned account around reddit. It happened to one of my accounts.

    Digg, HackerNews, Bibsonomy StumbleUpon are some viable choices of Reddit. These social bookmarking destinations are famous and commonsense in the meantime.

    I generally discovered StumbleUpon to complex to utilize, Bibsonomy is different to me - I'll look at it, and HackerNews is great, however they're confined to genuine articles, they don't have subreddits (or subcategories whatever).

    I agree with you on stumbleupon. Bibsonomy looks interesting.

    I knew reddit code was open source, but someone cloning it - that's so surreal :D

    Stumbleupon, YCombinator's Hacker News. Quora if you're looking for something more similar to reddit's discussion side rather than another social bookmarking platform.

    VOAT is not Reddit code, it is written in C# ASP.NET MVC 5.
    Reddit is written in Python
