I saw a thread on this the other day. The site seems compromised. Canary is dead. Shop is closed. No more calls for donations.

If I were to wager, the Jews bought out the site and we are just a honeypot now.

Canary is not dead; it is only ever updated when announcements are posted and it was updated last announcement.

Shop is closed because the CC processor ditched us. Why keep it open until a new solution is found?

Putt has been distracted with the Port; one thing at a time. How could he justify asking for more donations until the active problems are fixed? Fixing them is his goal right now.

Hey, you fuckin' sellout motherfucker:

You know exactly what you're doing.

You're gonna be reviled on the same level as Spez is, Putt. But maybe that's your end goal.

You and yours are tanking the site.

Or, all the bitcoin that were donated a few months ago (2000 dollars then) during the donation drive has multiplied (price 10k now) and voat is financially safe because of it

You know that atko/putt expressed that it takes 5k to run this site every month? The ironfist guy donated 5 bitcoin so enough for 10 months. Or putt cashed them and is on vacation...

I've been talking about this for months.

Putt's no longer held to any account of responsibility, and he allows SoapBoxBanHammer, Voat's version of SRS, to run the site. He allows Kevdude to bandy about his brigade squad without any regard for the rules of Voat.

Can confirm. ProtectVoat has brigaded me into the negatives on a few accounts and @PeaceSeeker claims thats organic and also it's not technically brigading even though it's a stickied post to my account and i lose 300 CCP because of it.

How is it running the site? I haven't seen the slightest hint of SRS's usual tricks on any non-drama sub.

Kevdude also doxxes user with impunity, despite being reported on multiple occasions for doxxing multiple accounts.

Also there are a bunch of pedos running pedo subs here.

Voat is right and goodly fucked.

None of this is new though, it's been fucked for years.

There is no user financial support, yet that isn't a problem? Someone is footing the bill for this honey pot.

Considering there was a large bitcoin donation a few months ago and it's value has soared I'd say they're doing fine in theory.

edit: Wallstreet is gonna short the shit out of bitcoin in dec/jan/feb and try to crash it. They'll succeed to a degree.

There are may posts that it has not worked for since the Port. The upvotes still register accurately for this post giving insight into its traction. The comment counter is a bug that I thought fixed, but emerged shortly after I thought it fixed. This is not an isolated case.

A better, and far more important question, is why does no one seem to care that the warrant canary is dead?

It isn't dead. My god, these shills are attempting to raise alarms and it's working.

Peace,

I'm not a shill, but like anyone else, I can't prove it. I am a donor and I do care about voat. All the canary takes is an edit and a save. But that hasn't been in a month and a quarter. That's worrisome to me. I'd really like if it was a daily thing but a month is way too long. Haven't seen from putt in a week. I'm worried about him too.

You don't seem to understand how a warrant canary works. Leads me to think the shill is the one calling the other the shill. Just sayin.

It's not dead. They only update it on original announcements.

Here's the most recent one. https://voat.co/v/announcements/2165876

I posted about the month+ old canary a few days ago. Got a few upvotes and disappeared. This post is still showing 0 comments even though it has 10. I hope voat isn't as fucked as it looks but stay vigilant.

He's working on the API as of 7 days ago.

Edit: The "comments" tally is also a server-side function and uses processing power. Processing power costs money and reducing the frequency that the function runs will reduce the server costs. You have to remember that Voat has just transitioned to a new codebase and that the new codebase was designed to reduce hosting costs. As with any new thing glitches are bound to happen. There are also likely security holes where there may not have been before.

Accepting a comment and integrating it into the dataset returned to a client upon request is a server side function. Incrementing a counter is not a intense task. The fact that the two can disagree is concerning because that number should be based on the same function that iterates through the comments to render the html sent to the client and should have increased in the 3 hours it's been since my comment but still shows 0 comments. Something is snafu here.

He was imitating SaneGoat and is responsible for the spam that got censorship added, and the on-site chat removed. He is an obnoxious pill junkie who just came back from rehab using lordbeatlejuicethe1 or something and has been shit posting and pinging people he is obsessed with.

25 thousand dollars raised and the site gets worse. Smells like someone took the money and ran.

Except for 6 months after the money was raised Putt was working day in and day out on the Port, as was publicly visible to all.

I've been here almost three years, site is still shit broken. The only thing that is visible is his apparent incompetence, which is obviously just a smokescreen. A convenient excuse for all manner of fuckery to continue on voat while the admin 'is busy working' on the port.

BTW, they've been saying they were working on a port since voat started too. Not just six months.

Do you ever tell the truth by accident?

Christ almighty, @PuttitOut worked his fingers bloody keeping the lights on, @Atko couldn't handle anymore. Running a site this big for no reward must be really frustrating.
