I was incredibly fortunate to have bumped into Tildes. And I have reached out to this community several times about bringing the niche academic subreddits here eventually. @Deimos has been very kind and receptive and it looks like things will take considerable time on his end.
In the mean time I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to create a website that would take all of these subreddits (slowly of course) to a new home if you will. To explain, create a website that would be the eventual home of these niche subreddits but also integrate them into Tildes somehow.
I realize that many people spend unneeded effort and money to achieve things like this and I don't want to fall into these pitfalls.
So, what would you recommend as a starting point in order to one day get there?
