Discourse without company

I think Discourse has an excellent format for Q and A; are there any examples of people using it for a topic rather than just for a specific company?

Like a Discourse for asking and answering literature questions or something.

Thanks very much

Loads of examples, how about the Interactive Fiction community, for example: https://intfiction.org/

We use it for the general concept of photography and processing with Free/Open Source Software over at https://discuss.pixls.us.

Thanks.
Is there any way different discourses could be combined into one app / site, so you can browse, discover and save communities on various topics?

Basically, like Reddit but without the toxicity, or like Stack Overflow but more freedom.

Thanks
