I feel like a dick pointing this out, but you've never posted anything. You only comment.

Not that that's a bad thing, just not worth bragging about on a thread discussing better posts this month.

A news-aggregation website such as Voat or Slashdot or Reddit or Fark etc etc, the content is of a dual nature: The links themselves, and the comments section. A person can contribute to discussion without necessarily starting it.

More people commenting is a driver for more posting and contributes greatly to the site. Obviously posting content others enjoy and appreciate is an art too but "you can't have one without the other"

We aren't in war mode (no major sewage overflows from Reddit) so we have been able to spend intellectual resources in other places. Shitposting is definetly way up.

We aren't the ones that started the politicisation of the internet. The elites couldn't leave well enough alone and attacked us.

Citizens of the net excel at warfare because we have played many vidyas, but when ever the opportunity arises, we quickly revert back into simple meme farmers.

I think we're trending. Not majorly or anything, but Voat was on the front page of reddit the other day:

It would be interesting to see a graph from https://voat.co/v/VoatStatistics from @VoatSearch with selectable week, month, year to show total submissions, active number of users access, etc. They do a great job posting their current reports, but would be nice to see an overview.

Thanks for the ping. I'd be pleased to provide graphs for submissions (with breakdowns as appropriate) according to suggestions, but don't have other stats (active users, comments, votes etc).

[–] cynicaloldfart 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Not even sure what would be most interesting/of use. Just suggesting an overview of activity (granularity uncertain) to see the "health" of Voat. Thanks for the current reports, you're providing a valuable service.

That's true, I might have fallen victim to confirmation bias. Stats always paint the clearest picture.

Wasn't implying your objectiveness was faulty, sorry if it sounded that way. Your comment just started me thinking that an overview graph would be interesting. SearchVoat replied and said they might be able to do something along those lines.

Commenting actually goes a long way, when you think about it. If Voat was nothing but posts I probably wouldn't be interested in it; I like reading people's take on each story.

That controversy has been mentioned multiple times, but it all centers around reddit's users and their image hosts. There is far less questionable art and photography here than on reddit

[–] european 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

Not sure about that. but reddit recently went closed source. They always had some secret code but the whole thing is going closed source now. They did announce months back (I think that backtracked after a semi revolt) the removal off css to add a proprietary system. Not sure if any of that has contributed.

[–] ChillyHellion [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I think you might be right on the money. I was thinking about the closed-source announcement but the cynic in me didn't think it would make waves on Reddit. If we received an influx of users who just care about openness and honest platforms, that might be what's pushing the influx of general interest content we're seeing.

Are you related to the former reddit sub? Think I moved over here about that time.

Seems like a lot of general interest content is being posted though across a variety of subs.
