I deleted my reddit accounts. Here's what I really like about Voat that's different from reddit and what convinced me to stay here aside from the censorship:

  • The site looks smoother, not as boxy and choppy as reddit
  • Sleek interface with more default options
  • Smaller community to feel closer with in all subverses
  • Encouragement of discussion rather than "look another fucking pun thread burying relevant information"
  • More investment in helping to see a website grow, rather than be a random in a huge crowd
  • I can create a thousand alts so that I can sell the names on ebay eventually (just kidding)
  • No email required to signup. Seriously this is huge for me, I don't like big brother watching over me. That's my job as the oldest of 3.
  • Voat isn't a money-grab
  • I won't be nearly embarrassed to express differing opinions from others on this site, based on earlier discussion point

And so many more.

Seriously. Fuck those goddamn pun threads in every post. It was cute the first 3 posts, but now I just scroll through it. Let's hope it stays away from Voat.

We need to start down-voting these kind of posts from the beggining, as to not let them gain traction.

That's one of the things that makes me hate reddit. Even when someone wants a serious discussion or wants an actual conversation it's filled with stupid fucking people saying rekt or oh shit you broke your arms, where's your mom.

Like I would be able to tolerate it if it was every few posts but no. It's literally multiple times every single post.

You aren't funny and you aren't original. They only people who upvote that shit is people who think they are in some secret group. Then go out in public saying the same shit off reddit and people think they are weird. I hope reddit dies and the boring ass rekt commentors go down with it.

One of the greatest features implemented on Reddit was the ability to hide comment threads and move on. I'd see a pun start and immediately minimize it.

It's just not the kind of content I like. I think it'll probably stay on Reddit though, until it shuts down since why would they want to leave something that still works for them?

I hate to piggy back on your comment, but you've got most of my personal thoughts already written out. I'll be staying here for sure. I do tend to browse Reddit still, for content and some communities that haven't spread over yet. But honestly, I'm waiting on a verse request over here, and as soon as that happens I'll be spending all my time here.

Some points I would like I add.

  • Native dark theme, solid winner right away.
  • On top of the smaller community comment, I feel like what I have to say matters more here.
  • Atko is a real person who still talks to us. I know this won't last like it is now forever, but it's nice knowing were people to him, not $$.

I really don't like the layout, though. The interface is great and all, and it is smoother, but come on... Make it fill my entire screen. What's with all of the blank space around the actual content?


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

I honestly don't mind it. My screen is too wide for me to read anything sprawled across it. I think there's something to be said about a small text layout.

Haha, I so agree with the username part - when I signed up for reddit all the good ones were taken, now I've made a couple of accounts on voat where I have the opportunity to have a much better choice for usernames!
