Goatherd. Sheppard is for sheep. And, yes I support this idea.

Edit: I've changed my mind. Voatherd is a better name. Everybody give AstroVortex some upvote love. (his Idea)

I like this, but I feel like Voatherder would be sounds better as Voatherd sounds like the group being herded.(I know goatherd means the same as goatherder but it sounds better in my opinion.)

I like this. Changed the MODERATOR tag in /v/photoshopbattles. Now reads GOAT HERDERS on the right side.

Edit: Same with /v/historypix :-)

Code for Mods:

.side .helplink + .title h1 { display: none; } .side .helplink + .title::before { content: 'GOAT HERDERS'; display: block; font-size: 130%; font-weight: bold; color: white; text-transform: uppercase; }

(The text-transform is not required)

Agreed. While I think the goat mascot is cute (especially since it rhymes with Voat) I don't think every single facet of the site needs to be tied into a goat theme. That would be pretty cheesy in my opinion.

I think there is plenty of things that will confuse the new user other than just shepherd or herders or whatever we agree upon. I think we should have a beginners post explaining all the confusing things.

Shepards tell goats how to live their lives too much. We don't need to be micro-managed. We need guardians: big, sweet, lazy, bear-fighting guard dogs. They shouldn't care what we do individually. They only care about the protection of the herd from external predators.

For the purposes of full disclosure, I have a Pyr and am totally biased. Voat, I present Commodore Oso Von Woofbang!

They are more like the workers at the different stations at a daycare. They keep you on track with what you are supposed to be doing at the table, and clean up your mess when you don't.

Aw come on, New Zealanders have a reputation for sheep love, not goats.

Goats have nasty horns to protect themselves. And even angora goats don't have enough lovely wool to really sink your hands into and grab luscious handfuls of. Goats are notorious mountain climbers as well so the old trick of manoeuvring then to the edge of a cliff (to gain greater push back) wouldn't really work. And just imagine catching a glimpse of goat devil eyes during the act of love. Definite turn off.
