I'm not really upset with Reddit. I just think Voat has a brighter future.

For me it was the same. Victoria being fired and the whole clusterfuck that came after that just was the straw that broke the camels back. For the months prior to that I would find myself being annoyingly closing a thread because the discussions just seemed to go downhill and the content did too, after a while. There was still a lot of good stuff, but it just became harder and harder to find between all the memes and circlejerks.

Just curious, but seeing as how some/a majority of the Voat community over time would probably come from reddit, it feels like circlejerking is probably going to pervade this site too, especially if the community becomes large enough. Thoughts?

Shitty management,

Censoring specific subreddits,

More shitty management,

Firing an important staff member with little prior notice,

And just REALLY shitty management

Everything here. I was never a member of FPH, but banning FPH under the guise of harassment when shit like coontown, SRS, and gasthekikes were unscathed is bullshit of the highest order. I don't agree with their outlook and generally find them abhorrant, but I'll support to the death their right to freedom of speech.

When you start haphazardly censoring shit, you're not protecting people. You're censoring ideas.

Most notably /r/fatpeoplehate, but some others as well.

Removing subreddits, shitty management. Same reason as everyone else. Too much commercialization.

The ineffective management and censorship mainly. I always thought of reddit as a free speech platform but the banning of subreddits was discouraging. After the blackout and lack of actual change though, it just seemed like a lost cause.

Did anyone actually think they'd be able to change something overnight?

Nothing major as of yet. People like me still exist in the shadow of the major chaos, and sitting in our little submarine below the Tsunamis has been relatively calm so far.

The admins and the company behaving like dicks to their entire userbase is nothing new.

Show up like herpes all over Voat. I am sure the rash will disappear eventually but it is fucking annoying until it does.

It's not that reddit is unappealing - it's that Voat is more appealing. It looks nicer, has more functions and I don't have to rely on external plugins like RES.

It also has a better voting system in place - being that you cannot downvote unless you have enough comment points.
