I really like the 100 CCP rule and even the 20 CCP rule. You have to work for your place in the community, but it isn't impossible, and it stopped me from being a lurker. I almost never posted on the other site because I'd get buried anyway. Now it's like I have an actual voice, and it means something. I also upvoat more comments now, just because I know what it can mean to somebody. (Not to say I throw upvoats willy-nilly).

That rule is bullshit. It is censorship for those that have different opinion from majority.

The CCP rules? I haven't had a problem with them. I haven't even been downvoated, and I know people have the power to do that. On the other site, my posts never even got seen, let alone upvoated. You can still comment and if you aren't an ass and contribute to the discussion, you won't be removed. I can't guarantee you'll get lots of upvoats, but you might. I see members with hundreds already. You just need to post quality instead of dribble.

Also, on the other site, perfectly good responses got downvoted to Oblivion, just because they disagreed with the general consensus of that thread, and once you reached a certain point, the post was hidden. THAT is censorship. I haven't even seen that happen here yet. The most downvoats I have seen is 3.

I'm fully aware of the minimum CCP rules on lurkers. I'm a mod of /v/lurkaholics. Most of us seem hopeful, happy, or otherwise positive about our no longer lurking.

Even if you don't voat much, it's like "hay, I gotta do this", followed by "hay, I can do this".

I worry that after the 3rd reddit exodus comes it'll be too easy to get lost again.

I'm hoping that the new users will come kind see the established community and follow the lead of "older" users. Even I have only been here a week, but I feel like I have a better grasp if the etiquette now. If the income of users is smaller, then the veterans will be the most visible. If it is a tidal wave, we can only hope the voating restrictions motivate them to follow our lead as more experienced posters in this environment. I am a bit of an optimist though, so we'll see.
