We should do a kickstarter to hire Victoria to run IAMAs on Voat. Shes got all the good contacts and seriously having a q&a with people like Obama is the best advertising a site could want.

Edit: although more traffic is the last thing Voat needs at the moment

I think she deserves a rest period. Being a mod is not easy. But it could also signal to her that her work is really appreciated, boost her self confidence again.

She wasn't really a Mod though. She was a high level PR employee. I'm sure she was well paid for her work. Liasing with politicians and celebrities isn't a skill the average moderator has

We should throw a giant party for her.

We could have an Ellen Pao piñata.

When it comes to earning a living, who wants a rest period?


[–] honorkell 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

After reddit, the 4th most visited website in the world, showed her such love and appreciation, combined with her having experience with thousands of celebs, AND her obvious talent and skills... Victoria is probably taking a vacation in Malibu, watching as her gmail account fills with job offers.

And she deserves it.

I don't think her confidence is low right now. :)

Why would you want her? She's just a marketing shill. She was all about getting celebrities on reddit and planting predetermined questions and answers to make it seem like community involvement in order to advertise the latest movie/product/campaign etc.

Stuff that, voat is about freedom of speech, not capitalist marketing.

Edit: looks like the reddit crowd has arrived, people didnt get downvoated due to disagreement before the last wave of new users.

You're right. Everyone's crying over her departure but her AMAs were PR fuelled handjobs. Obama did 10qs from his fucking hooplehead employees. It won't matter. Voat is about reality not some pr wet dream.

Be vigilant in upholding our upvotes meaning more than agree and disagree. I always hated that in reddit. We must help the new users understand.

Why would anyone agree to do an AMA if all of the questions will be hostile & disrespectful? There needs to be some sort of balance. I'm not sure if all of the questions were pre-determined or screened, but not everything is black and white.

No matter how good her contacts are, not many people are going to do an AMA for a website as small as Voat currently is, we'll have to consume a lot of Reddit's share of users before that happens.


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

AMA was one of the main pulls for Reddit. If Voat was able to hire Victoria she would be able to pull in some small to medium celebrities immediately, even with the site being relatively small... she would probably even leverage that into a good thing, saying the celebrities were showing they were cutting edge. Those AMAs would pull in more users. The cycle would continue with bigger and bigger pull.

But even if Voat could hire her, which would obviously be good PR, the question is how good would it be for the community.

IAMA and AMA are registered trademarks of reddit and co. lawsuit in

I've read through random comments that the trademarks won't stick.
