I've been a member for 7 months and I still cannot downvote in default subs. This is just topkek.

You need 100 CCP to downvote. So just because you are a 7 month old account you haven't contributed anything to the site via discussions or otherwise.

I just have nothing to say. I like submissions more, thus I got higher submission points, about 158.

Also, don't be afraid to ask for some upgoats, it helped me get going, but don't over due it and come off like a leech.

Wouldn't properly contributing to a discussion be doing this? I can't stand it when people beg for internet points without offering anything of value for it.

IT's to give you that nice Facebook-feelin.... Be positive, be a maskerade. It's the No1 reason I only spend a few minutes per day on this site. Not that I want to downvote, I just feel treated like a little kid, who can't deal with responsibilities. NOt inviting to say the least. So why come here..

I usually stay out of Voat drama, but I checked the CSS and this is legitimately concerning. Here's the relevant bit:

a[href="/user/shiningstar"] {
    font-size: 0px;
}
a[href="/user/shiningstar"]:not(.upvoatsGiven)::after {
  content: "blahblahgabor";
  font-size: 12px;
}

In effect, this code changes "shiningstar" to "blahblahgabor". The href of the link is not affected, just the text.

Transparent moderation is very important. I have no idea what they were thinking when they did this.

That user @blahblahgabor seems to have deleted their account. So they could be saying that they are the same people.

But blahblah could just come back - Unless this isn't blahblah and they want to secretly pop someone else into the role? Like she? LOL @typo

Maybe they had good intentions. I'm withholding judgement about their motives until I learn more, but they should have publicized this themselves if there was an honest reason for it.

Paging @Atko. Could you possibly step in and see what's up? /v/news is a default sub so this fishy kind of behaviour needs to be checked out.

I will. I'm on my way to work but I'll investigate when I get back. This is shady and messed up and it will not fly.

This is why I prefer Voat over any other similar site. No shadyness shall be tolerated on the subverses that encompass the "face" of voat.

The css fuckery may be why @system wasn't visible in their mod list for a while. Just saying that this may not be the first time they have "hidden" a moderator.

fortunately, the site creator participates when necessary. no jokes about the 4th wall are necessary. voat needs him.

New account got created, spammed a custom subverse for the quick internet points (for validity, y'see), became modded to a default sub, default sub's CSS made it so the new account wasn't listed in the 'mods' section on the sidebar.

Have you asked the mods of /v/news this question? I'd be curious in how they handled the question.
