I think a lot of people (including myself) enjoy the goat theme. It's goofy and light hearted. I guess you could always suggest something and see if people like it.

Yes, precisely. If I want something "sensible," I have plenty of other options. I prefer having something more lighthearted in my life.

To add on, it gives uniqueness to this community. Something that is instantly recognizable and symbolizes who we are.

Yes. That was what prompted me to ask the question. I've been seeing this type of thing for months and it's just annoying. I get that every website has its peculiarities, but this is really just stupidity at this point.

You must not be terribly sick of it having asked a question in /v/AskVoat titled "Goats! What makes you really happy?" a little over a month ago :)

I'm just kidding though I definitely see your point with that stuff.

I agree with you. And I do apologize if I came out as rude, I just saw your reply and then this post. Yes there should be a limit to the whole childish wave taking over. And I'm sure that I will get bored of these stupid requests and what not. But this is the internet, I don't expect much out of it...

I agree that it has reached the tipping point in terms of ridiculous-ness (sorry, can't think of a better word) but I do notice that few of the suggestions seem to stick. I kind of like the goat memes for gifs and pics, and it's fun for people to feel like they are contributing to their new club, so I just cringe a bit and ignore the sillier ideas.

I don't see them come to fruition, so I am not going to stop people from floating out their ideas. If the site becomes a goat-themed funhouse, I might change my mind, though!

I don't wanna goat up, I'm a Toys'R'Us goat.

Many of us are the ones who had to grow up far too quickly. We embrace the light-heartedness where we can get it. Our lives are dark, painful, and difficult. Let us have our fun.

We are the ones currently building this community and the letting kids be kids thing doesn't fly for a lot of people who want to grow this into an adult alternative to the steaming pile of shit that reddit has become.

Yeah changing the name for subverses seems like it would be going a bit far with the theme, but people referring to things informally for the fun of it however they want is fine with me.

Then again, I love stupid puns, so your mileage may vary lol.

I don't get why they aren't called SubVoats... I mean Subverses is awkward to say and I don't see any connection with the current theme anyways...

Wow dude, take a fucking chill pill. Judging by your reply to my post in the "God" post. And by this new Discussion, I'm going to assume you are either having a bad day and you are releasing your frustration with the internet, you need to have sex, or you simply are a fucking dick.

So relax. Just enjoy the ride, and if you don't, then no one is forcing you here.

Hormones can make people do stupid shit. Having sex releases those hormones making you more relaxed. On top of that it also releases endorphins AKA the happy chemicals in your brain.

That's what it has to do with this...

Super presumptuous of the commentor to bring up the dudes sex life like he knows anything about it or that its germane to the conversation here. It has nothing to do with anything.

[–] Incoherentrant 1 points 4 points (+5|-1) ago  (edited ago)

OPs post here seemed really mild mannered to me (despite the use of the word stupid)..your post seems a bit... like its flying off the handle in response. I didn't see their other post, but this is a different topic, so there is no need to bring it over here.

That said, I don't think "GOAT EVERYTHING OR GTFO" is a very good position. I don't mind the current goat themes, it's kind of cute, the logo is nice, but if you make everything goat related, it's a bit alienating I think.

I don't mind the goat-themed stuff. It gives the website a light-hearted feel, and makes me more comfortable, and inspires a sense of community.

Though I do feel that it might be easy to go overboard, but I feel that that will mellow out once Voaters develop their own identity.

I agree. I also agree that the changing-subverses-to-goat-pens thing was a bit stupid, but I definitely agree with you. Must be in an agreeable mood today, anybody else need to be agreed with?

I have less of a problem with goat references than I do with butthurt about it. It would be easier to write a script that changes "goat" to "Nic Cage" than it is to sit in threads like this arguing about keeping voat pure of stupid internet jokes.

I agree completely. What you're doing when you try so hard to force your own unique internal culture is you make yourself less welcoming to outsiders.

You're basically pulling a Starbucks.

"Could I get a large coffee with two espresso shots and cream?" "Oh, you mean a venti kakakiki roast whip double tall?"
"Fuck this I'm going to Dunkin Donuts."

"Who's the mod of the gaming board? Did he ban that guy?"
"Oh, you mean whoats the shepherd of the gaming playpen and did he eat the shoe?"
"Fuck off"

I think you are right that it can be off putting to people if taken too seriously. Right now people aren't trying to hard they are just trying to do something fun. People can either participate or not. Nobody should get upset at people participating and the people particpating shouldn't get upset at the people who aren't

Yeah, I haven't seen anyone correcting other people's terms like in my example... yet. However, it's still not a great effect if people come to this site and thinks it's some kind of goat fansite, or worse, doesn't understand what anyone's saying.

Fortunately Starbucks isn't still like that, at least in my area. I can go in and order a mutherfuckin coffee, and get a coffee that fucks mothers like... wait, what was my point? Sorry, I forgot what I was trying to say.
