    looks like digg and buzzfeed had a baby.

    edit: not a bad thing.

    I really like how illustration heavy it is (for now), that's becoming a rare thing these days.

    Very interesting that this runs on Wordpress. I wonder why that over a custom solution?

      With all the original content projects we've been doing this year (newsletter, blog), we've made sure to keep Reddit dev resources focused on community + mod tools + infrastructure. We didn't need to reinvent the CMS, wordpress has been great.

    Nice!

    Anyone else thinks it looks better with a white body background?

      I think it looks awesome. Sort of reminds me of what FB did with Paper, re-invent the experience by making a new product instead of incrementally changing the beast.

      I think I like the beige, it's a bit closer to their brand and gives it a more relaxed feel. This is pretty nicely done, good for them.

    Clean and it works. Other than that... feels like the other 12553252 Wordpress sites out there. Lol

    Looks pretty sweet to me.

    They have an endless pit of quality, pre-validated content and this will only help reach. Everyone else uses reddit as some sort of content generator anyway, it was only a matter of time they put it to use themselves.

    Also, have something more digestible to link when people ask what reddit is...

    This is an interesting move by Reddit

    Definitely an interesting and a fresh direction by Reddit, taking the front-page of the internet and giving it a fresh coat of paint.

    Very cool. Definitely a smart way to target Reddit content at a broader audience.

    Apparently there's a lot of mixed reviews. But I like the premise that Alexis Ohanian brought forward behind the reason for Upvoted. What happens leading to and after a post reach the front page of Reddit? Basically, it's the story of Reddit's community.

    Let's see how well they carry this out.

    Total Buzzfeed knock-off. But probably a smart way to get content more viral outside of Reddit on sites like Facebook, etc. Similar to how you would get to a Buzzfeed post.

    I find myself having to deliberately ignore a lot of the colour and imagery to focus on the headlines. For what is a very simple layout, it's pretty noisy.

    I'll stick with Digg for now – it's just so easily scannable. A lot of that's down to its consistent grid, simple typography and relatively inoffensive choice of imagery.
