Welcome to /v/anonymous! The most popular place on this forum we call Voat, open to discussion of the final boss of the internet. We have provided this new, shiny, and improved sticky post as a way to make things easier on our subscribers using mobile devices, and the lazy.
As a note to everyone, and an advisory to our verbally artistic trolls, it merits worth saying that this is a place for anons. ALL anons. The culture of both Anonymous and the internet is welcome here, provided it is relevant. Traditionally, anons were allowed and encouraged to say whatever they wished, no matter how offensive. If it offends you, that doesn't mean it should be removed. It means you should learn to get over it, and ignore it. Additionally, while everyone deserves a right to free speech, there have been quite a few discussions on.. aspects of the cultural linguistics that may be inappropriate for where they are being said, and would bring a level of attention that nobody wants. For that reason, when commenting do not encourage suicide, nor threaten to kill anyone. Even in jest. ("i would laugh my ass off if someone got v& for that" ~Rav)
Since we are not a lawless wasteland, we do have a few rules, because even whores have standards:
1.) No promotion of illegal activity
2.) No Personal Army requests.
Now while such an idea is up for much debate, some guidelines can help save you from future embarrassment.
Examples of obvious PA requests include:
-asking users of this platform to dox anyone up to and including the cops that broke up your SUPER AWESOME HOUSE PARTY THAT WAS TOTALLY PROJECT X, your school's principal for taking your prized baseball cap away, and the organizers of your local CCD classes because 'religion is for plebs'.
-Encouraging the harassment of a website for selfish reasons
-Demanding that Anonymous locate the people controlling the 5 jew bankers (Safe to say most anti-semitic calls to action will be ridiculed in some form).
Furthermore, this flowchart and this long list of internet rules may also help!
4.) No click-bait or URL Shortening. Self Explanatory. It shouldn't have to be said but of course we underestimate the depth of human stupidity, but asking "Is X legitimate" or "is X real?" or "did X do this?" counts as clickbait. Fuck you, you get the banhammer. Own up to your post: "Anonymous did/said this" or "*chan did/said this" (We love our *chan friends here, hell that's where the culture came from you faggots).
5.) Finally, keep your posts at least halfway relevant to the collective. If the majority of people in a thread are thinking aloud as to why they should care, ya dun goofed.
There's the Rules, These can result in a ban. Don't get banned, it'll make you sad.
The following aren't rules, just guidelines. We won't ban you for going against them, but your post may be deleted as spam:
1.) PLEASE scroll down at least a day or two worth of posts and make sure your link is unique, and PLEASE do not post an article or link that you have posted 5 times elsewhere across voat, because it makes you look like you're pushing an agenda.
2.) PLEASE avoid bait-like, severely biased websites when posting news articles. IF you are going to do it anyway, be prepared to provide alternate sauce.
Examples include RT.com, The Daily Mail, New York Post, naturalnews, intellihub, CNN op-ed, FOX op-ed, any opinion piece, infowars.com, prison planet, and firedoglake.
Our aim is, optimistically, to push our subscribers to be more clever in posting, and to introduce new content. We also grow tired of the practices of forum sliding and "astroturfing" becoming prevalent as of late.
Finally, If you have a new subverse or product you wish to share with us, message the moderators first and we can calmly discuss if it is appropriate(if we're sober).
We, as moderators, hope you find this new stickied post helpful and can find it within you to cooperate with us in the future.
Thank you for playing the game :3
