      RemovedUser This website doesn't really function like reddit at all. The only thing they have in common is that they both use a karma system.

      Lemmy is Reddit, but better. It's open source, and every instances can be independent OR federated, the moderation is one of the most POWERFUL out of all the federated software (the instance where the content is created can moderate and this will be moderated everywhere, and each instance that federate it can also moderate it for itself. There is just nothing comparable.

      Lemmy is active, full of content and open to new users. It's also Open Source and federated (just like Mastodon, Pixelfed or PeerTube), censorship-free (it depends on the instance) and with an open community that will maintain a reasonable debate (also, good moderation in the main instance dev.lemmy.ml).

      architsastam It's open source, very responsive and has the most comparable active user base to reddit

      headlines Decentralized alternative. Lemmy is faster than Reddit, and just as easy to use.
      Positive comment 10 months ago

      Explicitly made to be very similar to Reddit. It's a link aggragator that is split into communities, just like reddit. The main benefit is that Lemmy is federated across multiple servers, and the main downside is that it's still much less popular.

      jujujoly Should be higher in the list. One of the only REAL alternatives to Reddit. Others are just other social networks or forums. It is open-source and has very similar features.

      reddit tbh i thnk the website is pretty clever likete idea of having a board and also there being no sign up system makes it a mystery if a user is the same person or someone else and tbh its good now the only 2 bad thing is that 1 you can get banned even if you did nothing wrong and 2 theres no sign up system

      all the fun minus the bots and brigading
      Positive comment about 2 years ago

      pro_liberty The level of conversation is much higher, without insults or censorship. The site owners are not partnered with advertisers, so they don't have other allegiances. The site function is very familiar since it's based on the open source Reddit code.
      Positive comment about 2 years ago

      niezniszczalny It has good discussion because of no downvotes, turns out they are unnecessary + they allow brigading. Also, discussion is peaceful without anybody being angry on being downvoted.

      Quora might not have all of Reddit's features and versatility, but many people use Reddit as just a Q&A site. For that purpose, Quora is a good alternative.

      Quora is for asking and answering questions. Reddit is for finding and sharing interesting things on the web.

      Quora is spinach, Reddit is cake, one is just question and answers (like Yahoo answers), the other you go to in order to have fun

      tihedomecu Quora is a pro LTTE terrorist site. they have a large number of pro LTTE individuals who attack sri lanka while openly displaying the flag of a banned terrorist organization (banned By both US, and UK). Also when you visit quora from sri lanka, the you are automatically redirected to the tamil language page instead of the english page. Majority of people in sri lanka don't use tamil, but sinhalese.
