That's such a retarded reaction and it's one I hoped to not see here on Voat.

"What? You don't like this one new rule? Then fine have no rules and see how long you last!" - Crazy Mod.

"Uhh...noooo. We just didn't like this new rule. Can you just get rid of that?" - Most Commenters

"No because fuck you for not liking me. Enjoy burning this sub to the ground!"

Meanwhile /v/Science will likely do just fine without moderators and rules. All they had to do was repeal one little rule but they're too much of a fucking whiny baby.

Yea, I couldn't wrap my head around that either. People would actually respect a response that said "Look I was wrong, let's see what we can change or reword and strike a good compromise for everyone" The mods don't seem to want to talk about refining the rules at all in this case or maybe just don't have time. It took them a year almost to get around to fielding new rules. If they don't have time to mod the sub and listen to users then stand aside and let some active v/science users have a go.

Sounds like these idiots are reddit mods and they think this will save face

I still think it's possible to do away with Mods entirely and Voat would be better for it.

It's entirely possible. I think something is coming soon.

You still have to be careful with how the content is controlled, I think that voat might be okay sans dictator-type control mods, but you don't want a digg situation where a small group can "bury" something they don't like. The only solution that i see is a "pick your own mod" where you could subscribe to a mod for a sub, and the subscription numbers were public so that people could go with the popular one, or try out different ones to see what they were hiding from the viewers.

I also think that it is difficult, but possible, to cut down on spam and duplicate accounts by switching to an invite system so that a group of jidf or spammers would have to find creative ways of making accounts and couldn't just make them without tying them together through invites. This would also allow voat to not rely on a user's ip as much.

Use the sidebar's background as an indicator of when the rules will and won't be active.

I don't get this part. Is he saying he might decide one day to implement the rules as they are in the sidebar? If they are "off the table" or suspended why leave them up there?

From what I can see nothing much has changed in his outlook on how to moderate the sub. He seems to have dismissed all the input from various threads, most notably this one: https://voat.co/v/science/comments/766372 as some sort of attack and has withdrawn to the trenches. Hopefully I'm reading it wrong though.

As it stands, most of the mods are inactive there and he himself seems too busy to keep up with modding the sub along with listening to user input so his finger might be off the pulse a bit.

Isn't that the nature of a free speech community. Discussions will never and should never be closed.

It is but the person who is implementing changes to that community needs to draw on that never ending discussion. I'll be frank here, I don't think any of the current mods of that sub have the time to mod a sub that size and listen to the feedback of the users at the same time.

This is a good idea and a step into the right direction of how subs should be modded.
