@Puttitout, do you have any plans to prevent blocked users from pinging via anon posts? That seems like an easily exploitable hole for harassment, which renders the block button nearly pointless. by i-am-me in voatdev

[–]PuttItOut 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Explain this to me, are you saying that user1 can Ping user2 in an anon thread when user2 has user1 blocked?

A Voatify (iOS) user claims that his main account is rejected from OAuth login by draegspir in voatdev

[–]PuttItOut 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago

I can't reproduce this bug but... it could be caused by a password with certain symbols in it. I will test if .NET is rejecting the post because it considers it unsafe.

Dinstinguish[M] isn't sticking again by Disappointed in voatdev

Found it. It's a small race condition. This will be fixed in the next update which will hopefully be out in a few days.

For now, the best thing is to only click distinguish 1 time because the cache and database can show different values which will make you go nuts trying to figure out if it works or not.

I've banned this domain.

I don't know if this will prevent it entirely, but docs.google.com can no longer be posted on Voat in a clickable way.

Why do you pretend you don't care about points? by EngelbertHumperdinck in AskVoat

[–]PuttItOut 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago

I don't know why but I love that second sentence. The first one is stupid.

What was the last thing you replaced? by ChillyHellion in AskVoat

[–]PuttItOut 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

Just replaced a printer that I held onto for way too long. Last divers for it were vista era and I had to install some crazy bootleg Danish driver that took me ages to hunt down. Then windows would keep uninstalling it (thanks dad) no matter what I did to to prevent it from doing so.

Last straw was I forgot where I saved the driver file.

I'm going full office space on this thing.

Were is the archived typo? Did I jack up the announcement so everyone thinks I'm illiterate?

I'm leaving that btw.

Let's blame @fuzzywords.

I've gone from 24,100 SCP to 18,870 SCP. 1,040 CCP to 41. What the fuck? by Techius in whatever

[–]PuttItOut 0 points 15 points (+15|-0) ago

Hey WalMart janitor!

There are a few accounts that have had what I consider an abnormal fluctuation. I have all data before and after this change and I will be verifying your account as this does seem a bit excessive.

Give me until tomorrow and I'll let you know what is going on.

[–]PuttItOut [S] 1 points 8 points (+9|-1) ago

No, we did not retroactively remove any points and we will not be. What was earned has been earned, only going forward will these changes come into play.

[–]PuttItOut [S] 1 points 9 points (+10|-1) ago

Correct, this is a majority of the cause of fluctuation.

On Vote Manipulation + Other Updates by PuttItOut in announcements

[–]PuttItOut [S] 1 points 20 points (+21|-1) ago

Yes, currently this will happen. We may have to fine tune these things.

I have always wanted to create a trialing delete like functionality at Voat that will either anonymize or delete your content based on x number of days.

On Vote Manipulation + Other Updates by PuttItOut in announcements

[–]PuttItOut [S] 2 points 75 points (+77|-2) ago

Yes, I will provide more info on this before I initiate any further bans for this reason.

It is not my intention to ban anyone but those that are abusing the system for malicious reasons.

I should, but we have a full rollback strategy in place should something malfunction.

Right now app devs have priority. The API can be easily abused so we are being selective in these beginning stages of release.

Please email hello@voat.co if you need a key right now.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

There are other users involved with testing these updates so it is a we thing.

I should get more people involved though so we can find more issues...

ReadOnly mode is for updates and maintenance and is fully transparent to users. It is also a site setting and can not target individual users.

I see all sides and am remaining neutral. Vote manipulation will be stopped.

It's our site

Expect Downtime by PuttItOut in announcements

[–]PuttItOut [S] 2 points 25 points (+27|-2) ago

Yes, we will post all changes in an announcement.

I feel guilty though because this reminds me of, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it"

We have to push the update so that you can find out what is in it

In future we will have a milestone chart of what we are working on because right now we do not communicate this very well.

I am fully aware of the situation and this update will address some of the major voting issues we have at Voat.
