[Serious] What did reddit do wrong to make VOAT become a thing? submitted by defaultplayername to AskVoat

EatDik 1 points 226 points (+227|-1) ago

In my opinion there's a lot of reasons:

  1. Admins selectively enforce rules - /r/coontown got banned, but /r/killwhitey is still there? Tons of subreddits get banned for "brigading", and yet /r/shitredditsays is still here?

  2. Admins take sides - /r/KotakuInAction had e-mail campaigns directed towards advertisers where they voiced their opinion about gaming sites going against their core userbase. Admins threatened the mods to ban the sub if this doesn't stop... except this behavior doesn't break any rules... and a really similar campaign was all over reddit back in 2012 during SOPA. /r/shitredditsays was recently visited by admin (Drunken_Economist) which praised them for their work (one could assume she forgot to relog into her SRS account). It suggests that admins themselves are engaged with the SRS and mod the community.

  3. Something is too controversial to ban under current rules? Change the rules.

  4. Admins ignore the most important questions and do whatever they want - In any AMA admins happily respond to questions that soothe their ego, but ignore most questions that ask about controversial stuff like their decisions or policies. Naturally, this pisses off the users and they downvote the useless posts, so what do the admins do? They artifically upvote the posts and give themselves reddit gold.

  5. Big subreddits are full of overzealous mods - Mods in big subreddits purge the entire threads if comments in such threads contain something they personally find unlikeable. Everything is, of course, without any explanation. Almost all major subreddits on the site suffer from this. Mods also refuse to believe that the community can guide and behave itself while it has the necessary tools to do so (votes).

  6. Big subreddits have a political agenda - /r/worldnews deletes any threads portraying miniorites or women in a bad light, /r/europe deletes any content that is critical of immigration (and it's moderated by people who aren't even european!), /r/programming has recently deleted a thread where users questioned the new "safe space" policy that github started to incorporate. There are many other subreddits that insert agenda where it doesn't belong or doesn't make sense, such as /r/truegaming or even /r/chess!

  7. If you're a mod or a poster in a "quarantined" subreddit you can't create your own subreddit - Fairly new, but this was the tipping point for me.

  8. Nothing prevents people from collecting subreddits like pokemon -There are a few people (most notably agentlame and davidreiss666) who moderate a FEW HUNDRED subreddits. There's simply no way for one person to effectively moderate this much. Why is this even allowed?

  9. The old userbase is told to "go away" - 2007: reddit markets itself as place of free speech, 2015: "lol we didn't do that, hate speech bla bla bla".

  10. There are bots that go through the user history and, if these will find anything unlikeable, ban you from the subreddits you've never posted to - You made one post in /r/coontown? You're now excluded for shitload of communities simply because of that fact. It doesn't matter what did you wrote - you're the evil racist now and your opinions doesn't matter anymore.

  11. There's no point in building communities or creating content - With admins and mods doing whatever they want and not respecting their userbase there's simply no point in building a community or creating content simply because how easy it is to lose it. You can be stripped of your subreddit simply because you made a "wrong" comment somewhere on the site. Same with content - you write a long-ass comment like this one and it can disappear in the matter of minutes simply because mods didn't like the rest of the thread.

What do we do if the SRS crowd arrives here and starts taking subs? submitted by Alpacalypse to MeanwhileOnReddit

Their presence here won't be as severe since they aren't in bed with the admins. 8chan hadn't changed for the very same reason, the only SJW invested place is /leftypol/ (and maybe /intl/, depends on how you look at it) and everyone on the site hates them, so they keep on existing in their circlejerk and rarely go outside it.

You are up against three consecutive fighters, wielding a 30-in. hardwood bat, a 16-in. steel baton, and a 1.5-in. dagger respectively. You may use one of those weapons as well, which do you choose? submitted by cafe to askgoat

Even knocking them unconscious is enough, you can just discard the weapon and choke the guy afterwards (with or without the bat). You can even try to crush the windpipe (it's possible to do so with bare hands by striking the spot) and leave them to die of suffocation while you rest before the next fight.
