Clearly the site that this reminds people the most of is Tumblr (I also see shades of imgur and 9gag in this), and Tumblr has some distinct advantages in that it allows you to create a site around the stuff you curate, and also has a few other options. But — and here's something key — you can customize the experience as much or as little as you want.
Does this design focus too much on the centralized angle of the site as a whole and too little on the end user? It seems like the design of this site doesn't offer much in the way of customization and doesn't seem focused on letting end users make the content "theirs" as much as the collective whole. This is reinforced by the fact that you discourage repeat posts — a key difference between this and Tumblr, where they have a reblog button essentially designed to allow repeat posts. While that kind of approach makes sense for an individual blog, if you're looking to build this out as a wider content-curation tool, you should focus on the end user pages.
Now, this approach doesn't need to look like Tumblr. Look at what RebelMouse does. While it's somewhat Pinterest-y, it has a few key differences, such as the ability to customize HTML and embed on user websites.
I guess that, if you sold this as an alternative to imgur that can do a couple of extra things for Reddit users that imgur can't, that would be an angle. But I think the reason why people use curation tools is that they're trying to curate for themselves and not the site itself.
Let me know what you think.
I think this is a mistake and you may find it hard to find users willing to submit content because you're not giving them much encouragement to post.
EDIT: Upon reflection, this statement was a bit harsh and I tempered it a bit, but I do hope you consider ways to focus on the user as much as the creator.
To address your second point, we're now thinking up ways of how to engage users more into posting content on our site.
What, exactly, is there to support?
Is your site Flash or java based? If so, that's a decision that should be reconsidered.
Assuming its html and js like most other sites, it turns out my phone has a perfectly capable and modern browser on it. Indeed, I'm using it right now to leave this very critique.
Don't tell the user they can't do something because their browser "isn't supported". Of course their browser is supported if its anything made in the last 4 years.
I'm hypothesizing you think you need some dumbed down "optimized" mobile experience. That might be a nice thing to have down the road, but is absolutely no reason to put up a wall when you're trying to launch.
There's some zooming issues, but those are minor.
Ready liking the content. I do bread baking as a hobby and the first thing I saw was a time lapse dough rising. Very cool.
I realize this is more about the platform than the content, but the content kinda sucks...
We're also currently working on bringing out a responsive/mobile interface.
2. When I hover on the item to see what it is linked to, I get a "fake" amuzuor/../outbound_link - I like to see where I'd end up, before I click. I couldnt find a place for that.
edit: Deployed a patch that will change the filters to permalinks.
edit: Also one very very minor pet peeve of mine is when you have an activation code in email with punctuation around it, e.g.
> Your activation code is 123456.
Chrome actually does a good job of disregarding the period when I double click to highlight. Sorry for the bikeshedding!
edit: Ahh good point, I'll be sure to remove the dot.
EDIT: might it also be the effect of one of the extensions you might have installed?
I'm on Mountain Lion, Chrome Version 23.0.1271.101
Edited to add: This happens on page load, before there is any interaction with the page.
I was gently confused by the "We put a feedback link on everypage" comment.
Is that only for people signed in?
