This reddit clone, was just not active enough …

We are sorry to say that after nearly two years of building Imzy, it is time for us to shut down the site.
Some of you have been here since our launch into beta and some are brand new. We’ve loved getting to know all of you and seeing you build communities and make new friends. Unfortunately, we were not able to find our place in the market. We still feel that the internet deserves better and hope that we see more teams take on this challenge in the future.
Our final day of operation will be June 23rd. We want to give you time to gather any content you’ve made and exchange contact information with friends. If you have a new home for your community, I recommend creating a pinned post directing members there.
You might be wondering what’s going to happen to your data now. Well, nothing. We have always valued your privacy and we will continue to do so. You can request your data here.
The /Imzy community will open to allow everyone to post. This seems like a good place for us to gather, share memories, and say our goodbyes.
Thanks for spending your time with us. We’re really going to miss this place.
Important dates to remember:
Data export requests must be received by June 16th. We will do our best to accommodate last minute and late requests but it is not guaranteed.
The site will go read only on the 16th.
You will have access to your data until June 21st.
The site will go dark on June 23rd.
This has also been posted on the site, if you wish to comment.
