The winds are changing. People are burned out on politics and the rampant crime in government. Voat's growth is going to require doing what others hate, which is to provide for communities of alternate interests other than politics. Most of these communities on Voat are dead. As there is no escape to enjoy on Voat, people are going elsewhere for their escape.

It's not that Voat is dying. It's that people need a break. When things flair up, they'll be back.

People also don't want to get doxxed and the more you explain your hobbies the more likely it is to be doxxed.

Agreed. We have to make a deliberate effort to do so.

Some people are to boring to post anything other than politics. So when trump turns out to be a kike the lose their sense of realty and just leave.

Good thing there are people like us who know what's really important in life such as shitposting and advocating for the public execution of Adam Levine. Almost 2 years on voat and still going strong. I am the king.

The problem with that is no way to identify subs. There should be a way to browse them alphabetically instead of randomly so you can search out things that interest you and contribute.

It's under your subscriptions at the top.

Yep. I think a lot of those alternate communities have been shut down. When I'm feeling overwhelmed I submit to /v/mealtimevideos but it has been removed. When I can't take the politics show I try to find a popular gamer that has died and investigate what happened and post about it in /v/RIPgaming. It is also gone. A lot of the small inactive sub's I visited once a month are gone. I'm surprised this isn't a more talked about issue on this site.

Maybe we should have visited those subs more often than once a month?

It doesn't help that some users are hostile to non political posts. Also, most non political posts are not as heavily censored on Reddit so people will tend to stay there
