Is HackThisSite! Socialist?

Im new to the site and was just wondering if the site is socialist in nature. I know that in a broad sense, socialism means that there is social ownership of some kind so how does that connect back to the site? Do we, the users, collectively own the site? Also how is there no hierarchy if there is a wall of fame that shows who the best hackers are?

Thanks for the help/clarification

Hi, we do have a hierarchic structure.
Here is a link to the staff of the site: https://www.hackthissite.org/pages/info/staff

User's opinions and thoughts matter significantly to staff and how we run things. We take user insight importantly here, but we also have to put our feet down and lay down the law when things get bad. In my opinion, you can't run a system well in an anarchic environment.
