EDIT: @Stoic a previously inactive moderator has returned in the last few minutes and immediately fixed rule #1. If you continue to up/down this post, please read the question as "Voat of No-Confidence in @she and @shiny", thanks guys.
I have seen enough. The moderators, even now, continue not to even understand why people are pissed. They have clearly demonstrated that they are ill-equipped to serve this community, with an attitude that does not mesh with that goal. It's time for the community to put its cards on the table.
AskVoat is no longer a default sub - please read at least @Atko 's comments. This is a guy who totally gets it. The fact the Voat admins have had to make this move at all, and the fact they have had to divert time away from otherwise looking after the site, is a massive indictment of the current mods here, and constitutes a fundamental failure.
Please read the modlog - these are posts that have been deleted by the moderators. In the first two pages alone I can identify 7 posts that I personally feel should not have been deleted, and furthermore I believe moderating in such a robotic, bloody-minded and trigger-happy fashion is destructive to the community we are all trying to build here. (1 2 3 4 5 6 7) If you scroll down (usually to the last comment due to the downvoats) you will often see the moderator's comments.
Whether this post is a good idea or not, I guess you lot are gonna let me know :P My intention is to bring this debacle to a swift resolution, send a clear message from the community, and get back to normal. I'm not sure how many upvoats it will take to be herd (sorry) or make a difference?
Assuming the sub is put up for new mods, the future remains for further discussion. There clearly needs to be an overhaul of the rules, and the enforcement of them. The first deleted post I linked is worth a read - A very rough draft of Proposed Guidelines for Moderators of /v/AskVoat. Personally I'm not qualified (in terms of CCP / SCP as per the rules) nor am I keen to step forward to mod a flagship sub anyway, and obviously by getting new mods we risk jumping out of the frying pan into the fire, but I don't see how things can get much worse at this stage, given the mass uprising and removal from default. I'd be willing to let @Atko make the call, but we shouldn't be pressuring those guys any more than they already are - perhaps the community can make suggestions for mods? I would say we need a bare minimum of 4 active, preferably in different time zones.
Please upvote or downvote to signify agreement / disagreement, and please leave a comment. Thanks for caring enough about this place to read my ramblings, I hope they help to summarise how a lot of us are feeling and sort it all out :)
