Seriously.

I've been on Voat for a few days (finally!) and I really like it.

They've moved up almost another 1000 places on Alexa since yesterday. I fear the hug of death is inevitable.

Woot! Heres to the next 1000 up Alexa!

BTW, do you know where Voat hosts? (Azure? AWS?)

Honestly, I don't think enough people are participating for that to happen.

I'm 3 or 4 days into my blackout. I got a head start on you. You have to catch up to me now.

I was doing great since I made an account here but today I got bored standing in line and I pulled out my phone and did the little gesture out of muscle memory and opened sync for reddit. Voat needs to release a decent api already. It's the only thing stopping a sync for voat.

You could try Boats for Voat if you're on android... honestly though I've been pretty impressed with just the mobile version of Voat so far.

Actually there is Boats which works well from what I've seen so far. Not as advanced as Relay Pro or other Reddit apps but still. Better than nothing.

I think he is talking about the scheduled blackout that is July 10th that a lot of subs decided to take part in

I'm with you. Already trying to retrain my muscle memory from typing "r e d d return" every time I open a new tab. It's gotten down to "r e d Ctrl-a v o return".

It was just so easy though. ctrl + t and "r e d" were all accessible on the left hand!

install an addon to your browser like blocksite. you can easily block reddit and any of their partner companies so the temptation doesn't really exist.

Voat has replaced that other site as one of my homepages so it's an easy transition for me.

My speed dial (or homepage) is so empty now only with Voat instead of 4 shortcut to my favorite subs.

Haven't visited Reddit in three days now and it has already dropped to third window on my chrome homepage, shit is getting real.

Totally with you there. I rarely browsed /r/IAMA, but it really sucks to see censorship on the internet, a 'free' place. Content here is slow on many of the smaller subverses. The only thing that makes reddit sticky for me is just that the front page refreshes every few hours, whereas on voat, top posts linger for more than a day.

I'm sure you know this but I just want to drive this point home for other people too : it's slow because it's new. Voat is growing and will continue to grow. Keep submitting even if it's crap (I mean most oc is crap anyway right?) don't go back. Stay here and make it better. Isn't it worth it to be patient until we have something better?

This is what I'm banking on. I am looking forward to some of my favorite communities forming over here. It didn't happen overnight there, and it won't here either.

The sad thing is that because of the extent of the censorship many people only know about the major happenings, like Victoria.

Unless you subscribe to subreddits like Kotakuinaction or Mensrights you won't see most of the more commonplace censorship going on every day.

i think the only time reddit has appeared on my screen in the past week, was when reading stuff that was linked to it from here. mostly about pao's vacant apology. i've essentially been in a reddit blackout since wednesday.

Other than going to /r/voat, I've pretty much only gone to Reddit from posts on here or Google search results.

You know, I'm north of 48 hrs reddit-free now. It's really not that big of a deal. I like it here, not because it isn't reddit, but I like voat for what it is on its own.

With all the replies like yours saying "reddit-free" or "off it for 3 days", I thought we should have Redditors Anonymous. I made a separate post about it: https://voat.co/v/MeanwhileOnReddit/comments/236478

5:20AM / bit over 3 hours into the blackout for me. I was busy from 1PM onward so it's more like 16+ hours, and I don't even remember if I clicked a Reddit link when I woke up, so it might be more like 24 hours cause I'm pretty sure I went on last "night" (or early morning for everyone else. I go to sleep when the sun rises, so 5AM is still night to me.)

You got me beat!

I'm actually pretty proud of myself for not visiting Reddit at all over the past few days. If Voat goes down, I just screw around someplace else.

Can you imagine what a time sink voat will become once you realize you lost the ability to entertain yourself. :D
