I will now touch on the points mentioned in this posts title:
Some of you may know that limitations have recently been placed on how much content can be added each minute, hour and day. While as of today I have noticed that these restrictions have been relaxed, I am uncertain what these limits are, or if they were put in place simply because I was posting too much content and my account became flagged in some way. In any event, I created /v/Fredericton and /v/SaintJohn earlier today to both assist in sorting and adding new content. Seems fair that both of those communities should have their own Subverses as well; particularly when Moncton does. If you are interested in moderating - and contributing - to any of these Subverses, please send me a private message.
In an effort to prevent problems before they start, I've added two guidelines. One of the main reasons that I came to Voat was to get away from the echo chambers that many other venues for discussion online have become. To that end, all the Subverses that I've created so far have had a guideline promoting discourse and the open exchange of ideas; even the unpopular ones. I'm not naive enough to think that I've got the answer to fixing these problems, but I would like to move forward with some loose guidelines that fall somewhere between the freedom of speech and provisions in the Charter. To that end, if you have an unpopular opinion that crosses into what our culture deems prejudicial discrimination, present your point of view in such a way that it has context and encourages discussion - and prepare yourself to have it challenged. It is a longstanding belief of mine that discussion and debate are a crucible through which many of the ideas that shape you are created or destroyed.
My experiences with [group] have led me to believe [something unpopular.] [Here's why/where/when/etc.] - Acceptable. I may not like it, but at least I can respond in an exchange of ideas.
I hate [group] they're all a bunch of [something unpopular.] - this is shitposting and stifles discussion. Don't do it. Do your best to at least attack ideas, not people. There's no prize for being an insufferable prick on the internet; but, sometimes, there are consequences.
The second bit relates to self-promotion, marketing and spam. It doesn't belong here, and it will be removed. However, if someone wants to start a self-promotion/bazaar-esque group local to the Maritimes, New Brunswick, a particular city and so on, please send me a private message if you would like it added to the sidebar. I have no plans on creating such a place. If you are uncertain if something qualifies as one of those three bits, please message a moderator directly. At the time of posting, the message the moderators feature has not been implemented.
As the title says. I have been posting things in /v/NewBrunswick and /v/Moncton for some time now. I try to curate things that I've read that interest me from sources like the CBC, CTV and Global. Still, I don't want any of these Subverses to be solely dumping grounds for things I've read off the CBC. I'd really like to see what everyone else finds interesting; so, by all means, post your relevant articles and ideas. Feedback to this post is encouraged. If I can figure out how to sticky it, I will when I've finished my wall of text.
