It needs a complete rewrite if it's going to scale. Current technology is shite and won't scale to anything approaching decent numbers without costing an insane amount of money. It's already too slow for certain operations (like deleting a post if you're a mod) while the back end churns changes through.

Yes, it needs saving. As near as I can tell, all the miscreants from That Other Place came over here. That's good - keep them here and contained and prevent them from polluting other sites.

It's never about if it needs saving. We don't save things - we choose not to kill them. If Voat gets shitty enough the user base will choose to kill it and go somewhere else. More and more reddit clones will be popping up soon, no doubt.

So as long as we're cool, it'll be cool.

Great users, in-depth discussions, not fucking circle-jerking about race or Linux (or any other bullshit) and honestly, I don't think so. We just need to encourage users to contribute to discussions and make interesting posts. And NOT to make shitposts (/v/circlejerk -s and /v/soapboxbanhammer excepted of course) or downvote opinions (unless they're low-quality or spam).
