1. SUBMISSION POSTS need to be Q related only.
Submission posts are the most important. Any lurkers or newbies coming here, should be met with quality posts. That’s a broad range here so it’s ok!
What is considered Q related?
Politics, Secret Societies, Illuminati, Pizzagate, Corruption of the government and entertainment industry, and anything else that’s Q or Trump related that I may have missed.
Instead of making a submission to ask a question, please ask it in the comment section. You can ping others by putting @ before their usernames, but without spaces. Like, if you pinged me, you would do this... @srayzie
Then that person will get a notification in the “comment mentions” section.
You can ping us mods if you need to. The list of mods are on the bottom right. Only the ones with an [M]. If it’s a question that you would rather keep private, you can private message (PM) me.
2. What is allowed in Submission Posts...
Before, the rule was that submission posts should have a link. There were exceptions. The reason why, is because we were getting posts asking questions, posts saying something like “I miss Q!” Or just some one sentence or 2 sentences opinion. Or, a very vague title, and then just a link. The majority of you do great.
So many people don’t pay attention to the rules. They are only made so that the board has quality posts. Not that we want to censor anyone. You don’t have to agree to make a post. This is a discussion forum. All we ask is that you make it Q related and don’t attack other users.
What we’ve noticed is that some posts that do not have a link are good quality posts. Sometimes, even better than ones with links. The tricky part, is distinguishing what is quality and what is not. Some posts are well thought out and started a good discussion.
Some posts don't have a link, but they include a quote or a reference, such
as quoting a Q post, informing us of some breaking news story, a good well thought out theory, a prayer for our presidents safety, informing us of some show to watch because maybe POTUS will be interviewed, or encouraging others to vote, meme, etc..
For example, if you’re going to post a theory, give a detailed explanation of how you reached that theory. Such as explaining how you can back up the theory with what is already known or referencing things Q or trump have said.
Here is a theory post that I made. You don’t need to agree with it. My point of showing you, is so you can see an example of how the theory was reached. It’s laid out and explained.
So we’re going to lighten up on the submission post rules. What we would ask of you, is that if you see posts that are not Q related, horrible quality, or just some shill messing around, please downvote. A lot of downvotes catch the attention of mods. Feel free to ping us to let us know as well. Once again, to ping, you just put the @ sign directly in front of a username like this... @srayzie. Then that person will get a notification in the “comment mentions” section.
So if we see a post with lot of downvotes, and open it up to see a 2 sentence opinion that could have been said in the comment section, a post with no clear title or description, or maybe it’s a question, etc... We reserve the right to remove that post. We will try to use our best judgement.
3. No posting about other users.
We’ve, quite often, had people get mad at other users and make posts about them. The drama that causes is bad. Then you have people seeing it on the front page and they come here and also harass the user. That’s one thing I’m really firm about. That can get you banned.
4. No doxing or threatening other users.
Of course that’s a site wide rule and applies to all subverses on Voat.
5. Things that can get you banned...
Continuously Violating submission posts, depending on what it is, can get you banned.
It’s rare that anyone gets banned from making comments. There’s a good side and bad side to free speech. If another user wants to tell you off, call you names, cuss you out.... that is allowed. However, YOU don’t have to deal with it. Just click on their profile and click BLOCK. It’s easy. Not following submission posts rules is what can get you banned from this sub. Especially if it’s illegal or posting to attack another user.
Voat’s mod logs are public. We’re transparent....
When it comes to comments being deleted, that is very rare. We normally don’t delete very many comments. But, you can see all deleted posts, deleted comments, and banned uses on the bottom right. Us mods have no way of altering those, so we’re really transparent.
