Thank you. I never wanted to be as involved in PG as I am. I fucking hate taking the lead on anything, but there was no one else in a position to step up.

There are reasons no one else wanted to take it on.

I can't see the actual issue @TheodoreKent is talking about, to me after reading the rules and comment chain it is clear the reasoning for your enforcement.
I've also not known @TheodoreKent to be a dick before and I'm hoping this is a momentary lapse.

It sucks that this is gathering all kinds of attention, but it is a needed phase for an important topic.

They are working on the rules - The first 3 are ironclad and uniformly enforceable. I recommended that flair be used on 4-7. They are ironing out the bugs. You do know that thete is an effort to flood the sub with shit to forum slide, plus Amalek. I have faith in @crensch.

7, IMO, is an extremely useful rule. Videos are not easily digestible and are huge time-sinks. You can post a non-linked video with some vague title text and waste a LOT of people's time, and slide the forum with them.

I was unaware of the 4-7 being flair being recommended - or if I was aware it got lost in the ether of everything. I'm happy to discuss this more.

That is where you turn into a good mod. Bad mods aren't willing to discuss anything and thats why there have been a lot removed from defaults here. It was always going to be a tough job modding that sub, thanks for trying to make a difference there and teach the new users how to Voat.

I made a comment a day or two ago. It mainly said that 4,5,6,&7 all overlapped. There is a need for there to be a requirement about videos. I was just speaking to the number of rules.

Maybe make 7 into rule 4 and then make all the rules after that flairable? I agree with 7 BTW.

I don't. Honestly, why would you want people enforcing rules when the submission in question doesn't violate the law, isn't spam, and harms nobody?

Shit was just questioning the narrative.

This is how you get reddit.

There are a lot of clickbaity bullshit youtube videos. They are basically asking that if you post something you need a source and you need to explain how it is relevant to pizzagate. We have not had an investigative sub before. Maybe join the rules discissions?

If Amalek is a reason to heavily mod anything then we're all fucked. They deal with Amalek the same way we all do, downvoats and ridicule.

They want submissions to be on topic. Amalek was one example of the off-topic garbage cluttering up "new".

He's been modding stuff here on Voat for a long long time. It's not like he's new at this.

I don't think your image is a good example of a problem. Everything he said makes complete sense.. there are rules in place to help people understand what is being investigated and what to look for. In your case, it may of not made sense but regardless it is a rule and if he lets it slide for one user it may become more of a problem..

Do you have another example of this mod being a "Reddit Mod"

Good. I hate when people post links to crappy videos made by some random asshole in his basement as if it's a source of information. Write a fucking article if you have something to say. Video is how illiterate people consume information. Intelligent people read information because it facilitates research. It's interactive. Video is passive consumption. A rule requiring some explanation of a video without linking directly to it in the headline is the least that could be done.

Also, the sidebar changed for a few hours today - it WAS rule 8 for that time period, is now 7 once again.
