I joined voat because it's a new frontier. A chance to build again. It doesn't hurt that over the past few months reddit's mods and admins have shown some shady behavior (and let's not forget about its CEO).

I feel the same way about the new frontier. I just got my 6 year badge over on reddit. I had a previous account and mostly lurked over there for two years before that. I remember what the site was like 8 years ago when the community was still relatively small, and focused on content rather than control and self promotion and getting bigger. One thing I hate is the litany of rules that have had to be put in place in each individual sub. I understand it, but I hate it. I've had things I wanted to post get removed not because they weren't quality posts, but because the mods were so pedantic to the rules that they couldn't use their own judgement as to whether a post should stay up.

It's now so large that auto moderators are in use and armies of spambots are trying to get past them. With all the trolls and shills and bad faith users hungry to abuse such a popular and powerful system and mods becoming gatekeepers to information, the whole thing is turning to shit.

Anyway, I'm here because this site reminds me of what reddit was 8 years ago. It doesn't have to become today's reddit 8 years from now.

Shameless plug for https://voat.co/v/IndieGames

I could use some more subscribers if you're into that kind of thing.

How can we do that? I feel like every internet forum / social network is bound to get lame some day, but I sure hope we can do something about it

It's like retarded bukkake, where all the dudes stand around jizzing on each other and the one girl looks on in disgust.

The retard who just downvoted me just made my point: I came to voat to avoid these politically correct circlejerking pricks, but many of these also came here for the sake of downvoting whatever they don't want to discuss because in 2015 youngsters are afraid of dissent.

Fuck off, you ballless downvoter, see if I care.

I was talking to my sister about how broken Reddit had become, and through seer luck found a Reddit thread mentioning 'voat'

intrigued, I found this place. which was made because of what was wrong with Reddit, which has turned me off slowly over time. So here I am, less than a week in, been interesting so far.

So that I could read all the content that I want to read, not what a moderator deems to be suitable based on his/her personal views.

Are you upset about the minimum CCP subs being excluded from /v/all?

Ehm, I think it was a pretty hasty move by Atko but I'm not overly cut up about it. It's mainly news and current events that I'm interested in and those subs are still on /v/all.

To get away from the cancer that is known as social justice warriors and third wave feminists.

I joined vote because who doesn't like a underdog?

To get away from the grade school and high school kids. It's too bad voat can't have an age restriction of some kind because voat is quickly becoming a clone of reddit.

It's not. So far the behaviour seems to me to be quite the opposite of Reddit.
