Sticking with the goat theme; Instead of lurkers can we call them "Grazers". submitted by DetectiveSplat to AskVoat

Out of all animals why a goat? submitted by therealsung to AskVoat

osX 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago

G O A T = Greatest of all time. Voat is a community platform where the GOAT content gets Voated to the top.

but really, it's probably because Goat and Voat rhyme.

Steve Huffman, the new CEO of Reddit says he isn't afraid of Voat submitted by cheesypoofs_andpinot to news

Was technology even the reason people left Digg? Wasn't it because of dramatic changes they were making?

It's funny how he points out technology though, because that draws attention away from the real reason people are leaving Reddit, lack of user-base support, and the lack of well-thought out communication between users and administration. I think people care a lot more about being heard and fair decisions being made based on community input than any sort of technological gap.

Decay of downvoat limitation submitted by DoctorT to suggestions

osX 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Fake accounts are tricky and probably can't be handled that well because Voat in principal doesn't want to take any more information about the registrant than it has to and the only way real people are able to be legitimately verified anymore is through a phone as email verification is basically useless in preventing mass creation of accounts because it's so easy to mass-create or just buy emails in bulk.

It's a problem a lot of sites struggle with and something that can really only be solved by collecting and analyzing meta-data to determine what normal user behavior is and if someone is way out of the norm, restrict privileges for that user.

As for Voat, I think the whole idea of the downvote requirement will really discourage lurkers... maybe keep the requirement itself, have it go down with account age and only allow allow a set number of downvotes per x amount of time and maybe have it be proportional to the amount of upvotes a user gives out (i.e: a user can only downvote once for every 3 upvotes). I might be over complicating this though, but like I said before: just search for extreme abnormalities in usage behavior and you can see illegitimate users.

I think the design should take into account users first then worry about spammers/abusers of the system. Because people are going to find a way to take advantage of the system in some facet, taking away one method won't stop them from figuring out a different way to abuse it. Yes we should stop people from fucking things up but if the changes hurt the user who the site is made for then there's no point, we lose either way.

TL;DR: Voat can't verify real people easily because it doesn't want to collect user information (double-edged sword.) Illegitimate users are going to figure out ways to do not-so-great things no matter what. We shouldn't try to hurt them if it hurts real users in the process. Voat should focus on the usability of the site then worry about some of the ways it can stop bs like that from occurring.

Can I make Voat use my whole screen? submitted by VillaLopez to AskVoat

osX 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

So when you say "dead screen" I assume you are talking about the gray area? You can run this little snippet in your console on FireFox or Chrome by right clicking and inspecting element then clicking on console and copy and pasting it in.


Another way you could do it without any JavaScript is by adding this to your header tag (inspect element, edit header tag as html, put it right before "</head>"):

max-width:100% !important; 

You can set it to automatically do this on every page with tampermonkey/greasemonkey if you'd like as well.

I've "learnt" JavaScript, what now? submitted by TheOneAndOnlyCrumpet to learnprogramming

osX 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I would say, do whatever peeks your interest and until then just stick with JavaScript. You can't learn a language in a month. There are far too many things to learn, especially about JS. If you feel that you have a good grasp of it, start learning about design patterns, closures and scope, as well as try to learn a good framework, do you know jQuery or just pure JS? Have you worked with Angular? Have you worked with callbacks and promises? Stepped into Node.JS at all? I mean there's a ton more.

Not trying to patronize you or question whether you learned it or not, it's just I don't necessarily think you should just jump off into trying to learn a new language quite yet. If you are learning how to program to get a job in the future you should look up some front-end dev interview questions and see if you can answer the majority of them. You probably already know this but there is always more to learn. I think if you wanted to take a little break from learning about JS then "the logic of computers and programming in general" would be a good place to go to. Although a lot of that stuff won't really help you much with JS specifically, it does help when it comes time to switch over to something else and will make it way easier to do so.

For HTML/CSS do basically the same thing I suggested for JS (try to expand your knowledge) and then look at responsive and adaptive web page design, design patterns (check out some boilerplates) and page speed optimization specifically, as well as maybe a little bit of SEO. There are so many people out there that know HTML/CSS/JS but don't know them well. So you end up with stuff like blocking scripts and huge files being loaded on mobile, pages not working/looking the same in different browses and OSes (fuck IE 7) and stuff not being responsive or adaptive. Again, not saying you shouldn't try other things, just saying there is a ton more to learn. Good luck!
