Yep, but since I haven't felt the need to go back since voat has been stable it'll be easy.

Not just stable, but active enough that my frontpage has had a fair number of interesting things come up over the course of the day to occupy me. This whole incident has given me an excuse to go through the most popular subverses again and pick up some new subscriptions.

Yeah there's been a sea change the last day or so, enough people voating to keep the front pages engaging. It's so awesome to see it growing.

Its been stable, for sure... more stable than its ever been with this much traffic. Unfortunately, I fear that this boycott of reddit will, yet again, spike our traffic on Voat even higher... So I'm not going to be surprised (And I think everyone should be prepared for) Voat being crushed and offline yet again, while at the same time morally being unable to use Reddit. So I hope everyones ready for tomorrow being a day devoid of any sort of content aggregation services :(. Oh well, great excuse to go outside and grill meats.

Switching from reddit to Voat is like using electronic cigarettes to quit smoking.

I was mostly going back to see how much of the backlash was still on the front page. Seems like they have mostly squashed it on there.

*edit: mostly mostly mostly

Yeah, between content being removed and there being enough lurkers to happily keep upvoting the same old content to the front page it was all but gone the last time I checked, which was several days ago now. Reddit will get less interesting over time as more and more content creators and intelligent commenters jump ship, eventually it will become a site our mothers link to us with trickled down content from other more relevant sites.

Yep I got here before the whole Victoria thing, I don't much care about visiting reddit and i don't much care about this boycott and all these people that are just looking for a site to kill time for the day before they go right back.

If he's a mod, he can go back to make his sub private and then come back here

I'll close my reddit tab that usually stays open 24/7, but I'm not sure I'll be able to resist my subconscious opening a new tab at some point.

Is Boats working for you? Im not having a problem when I use a browser, but my boats still reports that it can't communicate with Voat :(

I'm with you there. The frequency with which I go in to autopilot and open AlienBlue on a daily basis is a bit worrying.

I anticipated myself doing that so I used a site blocker extension for the duration of the blackout.

You can use a browser extension or a system-level utility to block reddit (and/or any other sites you need to block).

Here are some good options:

I permanently closed a 6,800 subscriber sub, I'm most active in /r/redditalternatives (where I'm a mod) and I spend a lot of time here. So yes, I'd say I am participating.

Just out of curiosity, what was the sub?

Create its equivalent here and put a link in its private sub message for some conversions.

[–] 18andover 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

/r/LIY

It was a sub about online education and learning. Discussing courses from coursera, udacity etc.

The private sub message directs them to /r/redditalternatives

But TIFU and misinterpreted the time specified as midnight tonight not midnight last night.

Haven't been back since I realised but feeling quite dumb ATM.
