Wow these shills really like their "top 5" lists.

Someone is definitely testing the system.

Humm, here I was thinking voat does not like drag racing. Maybe it was due to "top 10"... it does look like voat has a weakish automotive community though... even in v/thegrandtour.

WatchMojo and those annoying two voice overs they have killed top ten videos for good. I liked your video though.

As moderator of v/politics, I am aware of these. I would say these must be done by some kind of program. These numbers are out of sight -- haven't seen anything like this before. Let's not blame the new users.

This should be brought to the attention of the admins (which OP did so I'm not gonna do it again)

Good insight. I'm sure it's not new users but whoever is doing this is taking advantage of the high user influx to conduct these tests or whatever it is they are doing.

Maybe we need a temporary hold on new users again. Slow the migration until we can figure out these issues.

We shouldn't let all the new twitter/reddit/facebook refugees accept their current shitholes. I don't think freezing new accounts is an answer.

Agreed, I'd suggest tightening new user restrictions though. Disable upvotes completely under 100ccp (or higher), at the moment you can just switch IPs, create another account and upvote 10 of your comments. Do this 10 times and your downvoting restriction is lifted.

I don't like the idea of leaving people behind for now but a boat can only hold so many.. "We are going to need a bigger boat" , which may take some time.

Gab has a long waiting list but people are still reservin their spot. Voat should look at expanding but we can't sink the ship that is carrying quite the load already.

I can't wait for a T-shirt! I'll buy 2 for sure.

Maybe... limit them to portions of the site? I don't know... we have to think of something. The situation is already bad, surely it will worsen.

There's still the very real threat of not having enough money to cope as well. These attacks are coinciding with Voat asking for cash to survive.

Our community is dying, folks. The refugees have overwhelmed our site, incurring massive costs on the Admins, while bringing in a massive number of shitty users (evidence above, I doubt OGs are involved in the brigading) who don't mesh with the ideologies of the site (and no, I'm not talking about the communities right wing ideology not meshing with left wing refugees, I mean the CCP abuse and Brigading abuse)

Clearly they are here to wipe the free speech community out; either by overwhelming the OGs or tanking the site.

I seriously doubt this was natural voting behaviour by newbies. There simply are not that many of them, and it's too much of a coincidence that it all happened on a few threads all following the same pattern. This is a bot attack, pure and simple.

Check accounts and note large gaps in missing time. You'll notice how people with 3 months gaps in their history seem to be having conversations with one another...

Well under this method they wouldn't even need to assimilate and pass off as if they're legitmate accounts, they could just control the front page with spam if they can out post/out vote organic users.
