    Hey @jsegal,

    Hope you're having a nice weekend :slight_smile:

    why does communities plugin require multisite?

    Communities is currently designed to work only with multisite but we have in consideration making it single site compatible. I'm going to move this thread to Features & Feedback section so other users can vote on this option.

    Is it a good alternative to buddypress?

    Main difference is that is that Communities will operate from within dashboard and BuddyPress ismore of a social network that allows users to post status updates, and interact with other users while keeping them on the front end of your site.
    Basically is more like simplified version of BuddyPress if you don't need all features BuddyPress comes with so it depends on the way you intend to use it.

    Best regards,
    Predrag
