    I love Snapzu's concept: it has a great design and awesome functionalities. My only complaint is about invites, as they're the things that scare people off the most. I wonder when they're going to be removed, so that the largest part of the Reddit community joins in...

      Honestly, I think the invite process probably greatly helps to slow the inevitable flood of Reddit users and spam accounts.

      That being said, I must have still trickled through. Hi!

        This is what I think, too! I know voat has had issues with the mass insurgence of new users, so maybe the flood being trickled to a river (because it's still going to flow!) will help keep the website up? I guess we'll see!

          ya voat has been almost consistently down for the last month. I've been checking in every few days and even when it is up it's ridiculously slow. it seems like snapzu is handling the crowds much better

      Most of us don't want a voat-level surge of reddit users. We have our own community and culture here at Snapzu and are willing to trade a huge amount of growth to retain the quality of our content.

      I actually love the invites and hope they are retained. It makes Snapzu impossible to brigade from off-site. You could say that we're /pol/-proof.

      I am really enjoying this "leveling up" feature. Way to inspire my RPG gamer brain, Snapzu!
