i think its less racist than reddit was. people are just punch drunk from getting slapped with leftist propaganda for so long.

  • grow some tougher skin

  • utilize your vocabulary to tell someone why they are wrong

  • block overtly hateful subs (in v/all under each post - next to 'save')

Reddit really hates voat. The #1 spot before the site went down was:

https://www.reddit.com/r/AdviceAnimals/comments/3wu6rt/all_though_it_did_insult_it_got_me_motivated/

And everybody started talking about voat and now it' been removed.. lol

Esp. before the /r/coontown banning it felt a lot like the early days of reddit.

It still does, except now it feels less leftist-libertarian and more right wing authoritarian (except when it comes to free-speech) politically which isn't really my preference but as long as the censorship doesn't come from the admins and mods I can live with down votes and seeing things I disagree with.

It has bit more of a paranoid and semi racist vibe than Reddit..

It is great to be able to have a whole separate place where free speech is king but I wish some more Redditors would come over from some of their echo chambers to dip their feet into some of our echo chambers so that some discussions could be less one-sided..

That's what happens when you pop quarantine bubbles. All the users scatter and the opinions you could have easily avoided are spread into everything in the greater bubble. Since those subs were banned Reddit itself has become a lot more edgy and Voat was swamped.

Yeah I agree. It made a decisive difference for me. I used to exchange messages on a almost daily basic on voat, and now not so much. A couple posts a week, maybe, ans only in cases when I really feel like it. It felt like we didn't need any fences, and all of a sudden we had to put them up unless we wanted to be swamped in, eeh, unsavory characters. And still, the seems to permeate the whole place, up to a point where I cannot read anything "multiculturalism"/"race"/"migrant"/"the like" related without thinking to myself that it's probably just more bullshit. I used to pay more attention to these things before.

While true if you don't curate your subverses, it does still creep into everything now and again.

Take the good with the bad. Don't let the shit get you down; it's the price you pay for getting rid of vindictive mods, that coddle your fee-fees while trying to manipulate the narrative for whatever purpose suits their needs.

Just unsub from the defaults you want to avoid, and take the time to customize your front page. Also, welcome to voat.

I would also add that there are known shill brigades here, and that they have more power because the site has a smaller audience.

  1. Voat is awesome once you block the subverses you don't like.
  2. Voat depends on your participation. If things suck, then you need to participate more.
  3. Voat will strangle your children in the night if you advocate for censoring anything on here.

with the huge crowd at reddit, you might not have to upvoat things... here it makes a difference.

remember to sort by 'new' and upvoat good content! upvoat people replying to you who arent idiots!

You build up your CCP. Don't necessarily have to join in on the heard mentality, but don't actively engage in sensitive debate unless you have a nice cushion to fall back on. At this point, I could say whatever I want and don't have to worry about shit.

If you're honest about your opinion, have at least put some legitimate thought in to your comment and are open to genuine discussion instead of just yelling "Lalalalalala" at people's responses to your comments, you'll notice the upvoats/downvoats are usually pretty evenly split.

You have to really be hated on Voat for that happen. /u/She was brigaded into nothing because literally the entire website had something against her, and she refused to step down. In a sense, we "voted" with what happened to her account.

I'm not the OP, but I'm new to voat and I'd be interested in some suggestions for subverses, since the only one I'm subbed to currently is music. And now AskVoat. But yeah, if you wouldn't mind recommending a few to me... what are some popular subverses? I think I'd like to start out in some of the more heavy-traffic subs of the site first before checking out smaller ones.

/v/all is where I spend most of my time, and just block subverses I get tired of seeing. It's a decent way to find out about newer subverses as well.

Some of my favs:

There are plenty more though, I highly recommend using /v/all and just blocking what you don't want to see and subscribing to things you like as you encounter them.

If you are interested in playing a game and chatting with others, /v/modernpowers is a rather nice sub.

Be the change you want to see. Unless that change is censorship via moderation.

Voting matters, and more submitters are always welcome.

Voat doesn't like you, and you shouldn't like voat.

That's what makes it awesome.
