This sub is not stagnating. It has more news about the migrant crisis than all other subs combined. This is my go to sub when that is all I want to read about.

I think it's because of the US election stealing a lot of the limelight. A lot of what's in store for the future depends on the outcome of that, even here in Europe. Especially here in Europe, in fact. I know I'm keeping a closer eye on the US Election right now than I am on Estonian or even European politics. Mostly because European politics is a moot point if Hillary goes to war with Russia with the excuse of her hacked emails.

You guys need to start memeing comedy out of the horror instead of just posting the horror. It's like how /pol realized you get more traction with shoah jokes and le happy merchant memes than endlessly drilling the most banal paragraphs of mein kampf.

I hesitate to do that. The Ancient Greek philosophers all knew and taught that the quickest way to trivialize something was through comedy. Just look at American media. Every mainstream comedy outlet is used to mock any right wing views. American youth also just happen to be very left leaning.

People brush off that kind of thing as just 'not having a sense of humor' but it goes much deeper than that and I'd say that the people running those companies know it.

Post content to other subs. That's what keeps reddit going, lots of other shit to look at when you get tired of politics. No site can survive on only one type of material. There's only so many red pills one can swallow a day.

Subscribers mean nothing when all/new is king. I browse by all new but only subscribe to the nsfw subs so that I can browse by front for bewbs.

Other than that, different content.

Yep, I don't see any signs of decline. /v/European is on the first page of /v/all every day.

Please DO NOT concern about the subscriber count. Please do not let people spam this European community with meme which could alter its direction. People seek happiness and they tend to ignore tragic events happening around. It is the reason why people leave this sub.

 

I wish this community were opposite of what it is now. May be it will be in next timeline.

 

Even though all the news here are painful to read, there are some souls watching over the situation. They may be working for a solution to fix such corruption. They need the information to help those who are in danger.

I think a big part of this has to do with the ideological radicalization of Voat in general and especially this sub and ones like it. This "echo-chamberization" that always tends to happen in online communities is happening a bit faster on Voat for obvious reasons.

It really puts off a lot of regular people who are down to a redpill or two, but aren't actually batshit irrational, willfully blind ideologues like a lot of the more vocal posters here.

It's not so much about being welcoming as about not being blind ideological assfaces.

There is a rational argument to denounce the very concept of "islamophobia" as irrational lefty ideological hogwash bullshit. There are a million rational arguments against allowing the uneducated, superstitious hordes of Islamic masses into the wholly incompatible Western civilization. It is imperative that Europeans denounce -- at every turn and opportunity -- their ideologue leaders that have caused this catastrophe.

These are all rational arguments that have fuck-all to do with mein kampf ranting. It is looking at the situation without prejudice. And it is what is required if you don't want to turn this sub into an echo-chamber where irrational idiots quote irrational dogma at one another, just like they do on Reddit.
