SaidIt's main sub
How does saidit look, feel and act exactly like Reddit?

Was reddit's site source code released or did you build this from scratch? I'm just curious, thanks.

Reddit's source code was public until 2015, Saidit has been forked from this.

That's actually pretty cool of Reddit to do.

Stopped sharing their code back in 2015?

That they actually released their source code at one point. IIRC, 2015 is when the redesign beta took place so I don't see a reason for them to release the source code for something they aren't updating

Well they could have made the new site public too but decided against it, citing it reduced their competitive advantage in the market, that others could snoop on their video platform or something.
It rubs people wrong because they pitched themselves as a free speech and open source site, even using the motto "open source is awesome".
Also whatever code they were releasing was not complete so they were never truly open source in the first place. They admitted to two different repos.
