(Old goats, you are invited to add your piece or correct me where I'm wrong. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude for opening your doors and teaching us - even if pretty roughly at times, lol - about Voat culture.)
“Q sent us here”, is what I hear from many GA-Reddit refugees on v/QRV. Great that you made it here, welcome… hopefully, this post will help you to easier find your way around here...
Voat has three main Q subverses that I will talk about in another post. Suffice to say for now; you can access the feed of all these three sistersubs in a set the Voat-admin created here https://voat.co/s/GreatAwakening. (Notice the ‘s’ before the dash instead of the usual v/)
This post is intended to focus on the relationship between Q-people and the Voat community. Let's end this 'us vs. them' bullshit.
We came as refugees to the only free speech zone on a public social media platform besides the chans. Voat has a similar interface to Reddit so it’s easier to use for people who don’t find their way around 8chan.
There are some major differences between Voat and Reddit that confuse and irritate new goats (term for Voat users who perceive many Redditors as sheep) which need to be understood, in order to easily integrate.
Public moderation logs are default, their links can be found down below in the sidebar. On Reddit, only a few rare subs make their mod logs transparent as they show all removals and bans so the moderator’s actions are under constant surveillance by community (prevents secret mod power abuse and censoring).
Free speech brings about interesting information but also a lot of trolling, insults, cursing, strange images; things one may not want to see or hear. It’s a call to putting on our big boys/gals pants, toughen up, stop taking everything personally, and speaking our heart and mind. No political correctness on Voat, take it or leave it.
Voat is so much smaller than Reddit that many users don’t go to specific subs but scan the v/all page which displays all public subs in one feed. If you go there, you will see that right now, a majority of the posts are from the Q-subs. Just for a moment, put yourself into the shoes of the old goats. How would you feel, esp. if you were a Q-sceptic?
In order to post, you need 10 CCP (comment contribution points), in order to downvote (downvoat), you need 100 CCP. This works against spam and downvoat brigades but is annoying for genuine Redditors who only want to engage on /QRV where you can’t earn or lose CCP because of anonymization. The system is also designed to invite people to engage with the greater Voat community. A few interesting or funny comments outside of the ‘ghetto’ will give you the required CCP within a few days. Annoying, yes, but that’s the culture here so we have to accept it and better stop fighting it over and over again.
Unlike Reddit where you receive a default upvote for each comment (automatically upvoting yourself with ‘1’), your comments on Voat start at ‘0’. You can’t blabber ‘your way up’ in solitude; you need to communicate with the goats. In the process, you will learn Voat culture and understand some of the issues that come up with the Q-people.
Vote farming is despised and all attempts to manipulate the voting system – as in creating a sub or alts with the intent to earn CCP – are being called out and downvoated. Engage genuinely and you will be accepted and ‘rewarded’.
Due to its size, the Voat community cares about all of its subs. When a new sub is modded in a censoring way – as happened with v/TheAwakening whwere, after 2 days, the mod log for bans was 8 pages long -, old goats flood in to make people aware, call out the mods, and troll the shit out of the sub. If the owner of one of their subs gets smeared without evidence of wrong-doing - as happened with v/GreatAwakening -, the goats take it as an attack on their entire community and fight back.
New people and subs seem to traditionally get challenged with ‘free speech smears' so you will stumble upon a lot of ‘niggerfaggot’ and ‘it’s all the Jew’s fault’ stuff (*). It’s like a test: how politically correct and brainwashed are you? Are you fit for free-speech Voat or a ‘normie’? If you deal with it intelligently, it’ll stop after a few days. If you fight it or react with outrage, it will persist.
That being said, Voat land is somewhat similar to Reddit but essentially different in a few aspects as its basic principle is honoring the 1st amendment. That’s not easy to take for some Redditors who are used to being ‘protected’ from unwanted content by moderators who do or do not work with their subscribers’ best intent at heart.
Now step into the Voat land citizens shoes for a moment...
It’s like Europe and the refugee crisis which, over time, got renamed to ‘migrant crisis’. Note: Refugees leave when the crisis is over, migrants stay and need to integrate, in order to peacefully live next to each other.
Like Europe – first ‘invaded’ by the ME, now by Africa -, Voat experienced two floods of Reddit refugees. (Btw, Q-people are not the first refugee flood to Voat; Wikipedia gives a synopsis of former migrations.)
The first flood happened on Rystalnacht, Sept.12, when the mods of Reddit GA created v/TheAwakening right after Reddits BigBan. It created lots of upheaval that stirred the pot against the ‘Q-invasion’. (Let’s talk about this in more detail in another post. If you want to search Voat on it or anything else, use https://searchvoat.co)
The second flood came on and after Sep.21, after Q asked the seemingly trusted board owner (BO) of 8chan to create a Voat sub – v/QRV - for the ex /GA/ Redditors (Q2269).
Both newly created subs don’t respect Voat culture, they both fucked with the voting system. TA corrected that after some days, QRV won’t correct it as it’s part of the anonymization feature.
Staying within the Europe refugee analogy, the first flood appeared like the installation of a ghetto under sharia law, and the second flood like full anarchy. That some members of these subs tend to behave accordingly is no surprise.
Long story short, Q-people from all subs but the first one – v/GA, which has existed here for 8 months – are refugees to Voat land and have to integrate with its culture else we are quickly being chased out of here again.
It’s up to us to choose to stay refugees or become migrants. When we stop fighting the goats and stop trying to take over the entire platform (there was some BS about Q-temple and 'taking back what's rightfully ours, arghhh), they will stop fighting us.
Let’s end this ‘Us vs. Them’ bullshit! It’s the playbook of the elite; ‘divide+conquer’ is their only way to keep us people in check. They chuckle about us right now while we blindly follow the strategy they have implanted into us to divide ourselves.
If you look around on Voat, you may discover quite a few people who live up to the same cause – liberation from slavery, re-gaining sovereignty – even if they are Q-sceptics.
There are more similarities between us than differences.
Back to the Europe analogy: Unlike many Europeans who tend to have vacations in various countries, many Americans never had the chance to travel outside of their country and culture so many of the refugees to Voat have no experience with integrating into a system they are not used to.
Here is the challenge.
Voat is like a house with many rooms and the Q-people inhabit three of them. (Yeah, there are smaller ones, too, i.E. v/Qbiblical, in case you want to talk religion.)
If we keep going with these stupid useless fights, in-between the Q-subs and with the Voat community, we are further away from ‘Time to Unite’ than ever. //They// managed to create an artificial dualistic division again instead of keeping us focused on the 1% that manipulate and enslave the 99%.
Wake up! Stop playing their game!
Voat has welcomed us, is testing us, and will chase us out if we keep fighting its culture and don’t integrate.
Never mind that some of the Voat trolls and many of the Reddit trolls who followed us to Voat instill division and spam the heck out of us. Witty comments, ignoring, or downvoating are the tools to deal with that.
It’s up to us to respond as mature conscious people and not as sleeping sheep that react according to their conditioning, fleeing the challenge or fighting back. Some wakefulness is required so we can make peace with our neighbors in this community house.
Welcome to Voat land! May you quickly and easily find your way around; you will meet some nice people who are great models when it comes to thinking for oneself and living without leaders to follow. It’s like a bridge to anarchic 8chan, if you so will. Can be quite a lot of fun here if you adjust…
*edit: In regards to ‘It’s all the Jew’s fault’: I am aware that most of the cabal heads are Ashkenazi Jews and don't mind discussing it when someone in the know posts on it, with sauce and in depth. High time that people move beyond the antisemitism lockjaw and learn and call out the criminal bastards
What I disagree with is general Jew-bashing which floods each post, completely off-topic. There are Jewish patriots, not everyday joe-Jew is a criminal askheNAZI.
in my eyes, that's comparable to a toddler shitting on the dining table where the rest of the family eats. It won't open their eyes, it does nothing but annoy the crap out of people and make their walls even thicker. If you really want to open people's eyes, be gentle and give comprehensive evidence.
