I like that they're implementing features reddit admins have procrastinated on or flat out refused to implement for years. Reddit's code is such a mess that no serious improvements can ever be made. It's also cool to have RES-esque features native in the site.

I just joined and have been opening picutres/gifs directly on the page. It took me a couple times to realize that I didn't have RES and that this was just a feature of the website.

I just found voat and have been looking around and until I read your comment I didn't realize that I had been doing the same. There a still a few features of RES that would be cool to have, but I either haven't found them yet or they haven't been implemented yet.

I might be missing some but :

  • you can watch videos and images without having to click out of the site.

  • (?|?) the upvote/downvote feature which reddit blocked is enabled here by default, Used to require RES.

  • can preview the text description of threads.

Afaik Name tagging is coming.

In addition to what /u/sirinon already said, it just feels like the creators of voat are listening to all the feedback users are giving. Since reddit is basically a patchwork hack job of code that was developed over time, voat has the advantage in that we all know what reddit's weaknesses are and can convey to the creators the features that reddit lacks.
