Well there ya have it newfriends. You can either try and get nuked again on reddit, or you can embrace the uncomfortable truth, assimilate, and we can all get along. Also, /v/TheDonald exists so use that and avoid the power tripping mods here.

You don't need aggressive banning and pruning here because the site administration isn't openly opposed to you voicing your opinion here like back on Faggit. Nor does there exist a gang of SJW power mods working together to control all of the major subs. And any attempt by mods to start that kind of shit here is met with ferocious opposition.

Here you are truly free, but your tiny little minds cant handle it. Go back to Faggit. You are far better suited to there.

Vailx you're a dear for caring about us and helping us out. Please don't be offended that we have this ThePedes verse. Don't know exactly what Snap was thinking, but I think might be temporarily best that we have this large tribe migrating in, and not come crashing into TheDonald en masse, and have a place to gather and get our bearings. Also we undoubtedly have trolls following us that we will need to deal with.

This may come as a shock, but not all mods are bad. I get the feeling some goats have had a very bad experience with mods. We love our mods. They're not out for power, just the opposite. They don't do much on their own, but mainly act on our reports. For me, mods have always done what I wanted, except one time, and in that case they were right coz I didn't catch the sarcasm of a certain comment. Wish all mods were as good as ours.

Ultimately I'm hoping we can work things out and stay there, coz we have a long and beautiful history there. But some of the things we do, the research, is getting things warm for us over there. At any time they could suddenly give us the boot, and they would blame it on hate or something. We could need to migrate at a moment's notice. Glad to know Voat is here for us; but if it doesn't work out don't worry we'll see what else.

Guess I maybe am speaking a little boldly, but I know my pedes so well I feel pretty confident that I represent how most of us feel. I'm Granny I do this kinda thing. MAGA

Well you should probably figure that shit out.

Most of us here get why you had your thing on reddit the way you did: You're vastly outnumbered by liberals there and didn't want them taking over your threads, you did some circle jerky stuff just to annoy those that wanted to shout you down but couldn't, etc.

But honestly if you come here and do your, "Liberals won't like this pic, to the top!" shit, and banning and deleting a bunch of stuff it's probably not gonna met well. We're just gonna look at you and be like, "What the fuck? Just go to v/politics and talk about Trump, he's well liked there, and those that don't like him aren't gonna try shout you down or anything. Quit posting low effort aspergers shit to v/all."

Then when people downvoat you you'll probably be all "shill this, CTR that," and you'll be met with a bunch of old goats saying, "Dude, we like Trump. We just don't like dumb fuckery."

Edit: Also Pedes is a fucking terrible name. I know your goddamn centipede meme, but as many of you as I'm sure read the Scott Adams blog you'd think someone would have realized that once seen as looking pretty damn close to pedos it can't be unseen.

You greedy TD mods migrating from reddit had your hugely popoular platform and you scuttled it underneath your entire userbase. You had your platform which was 2nd or 3rd most active on that site, and had huge potential to continue influencing everyone there, and you're now killing it off. The duty your userbase expected you to fulfill was simply keep TD subreddit alive, and you now decide to call it quits - throw a temper-tantrum so you can martyr yourselves as reddit corp brings down the banhammer in response as they've always threatened.

Timing is wonderful on your part, and rather suspicious. Voat is in the red, and moments after that announcement was made by Puttitout you decide to try and migrate your entire userbase to here. I think you did this knowing full well the burden a huge migration of your userbase would place on this site. Almost as if you actually want your TD subreddit killed along with all its subscribers. After a few months it's quite likely donations to keep Voat alive will dry up especially given the huge influx of traffic it now has to support and pay for - that means possible site closure, leaving your entire migrated userbase once again orphaned. Is that what you want?

I admit I am a huge /r/The_Donald fan for the amusement and information it offers and often lurk there. But this sudden outbursts from you mods sabotaging that subreddit is disheartening.

AND YOU GO AN SET /r/The_Donald INVITE ONLY JUST NOW?! The fuck is wrong with you people?

How do we know the admins didn't kick off all the mods, install their people, then make it private? I agree the timing is suspect but I think it has more to do with the info coming out on Seth Rich than trying to crash this site.

Voat is in the red? Not anymore, it just got funding for life.

You are a huge the Donald fan? Glad to hear, hopefully more people from that site will leave, it was the only good thing there imo. Reddit was making a ton of money on the Donald and they were charging advertisers as if we had 6 million subscribers, because we did and they wouldn't admit it, it was more important to fight back and cut that funding to them rather than continuing the red pill. Imo everyone with an open mind was converted already, anyone still left is not worth the time and will never be converted. We have the votes anyways.

The community on voat is almost as toxic as Twitter. I only went to Reddit's T_D to share alt news our catch up on current events. If I have to wade through a cesspool of people saying kike and nigger, I'd rather peace the fuck out from the internet and just have faith in Trump. Fuck the mods for not having a backup organized for a smooth transition.

If by "toxic" you mean you don't agree that users should be freely able to speak their mind without fear of their account being terminated or comments "shadow banned", then fuck off back to your reddit safe space where you'd obviously feel more comfortable. You don't belong here especially since you don't get the irony of your own situation.

Censorship is fine, why waste time shouting down retards and trolls that want to be shouted at? We are totally fine with subs like ask science that deletes all jokes and non science posts, it's the fake votes and the lying from Reddit CEOs that's the issue. Why did you ban us? You threatened us, no you threatened us here is a screenshot of that. Where is your screen shot? We don't have one also an unnamed source tells me you're doxxing her, no you're​ doxxing us why won't you delete this post and ban this person that's doxxing us on ets, because we're about bringing everyone together and Trump is Hitler you're banned for life now.

The_Donald has just been set to private, and I have sent a pm to get in. In the process, I found out I had been banned from Two-X Chromosomes a couple of hours ago. This is amusing, because I once had a subscription to that "non-political" sub, and it became poisonous and politicized during the election campaign. I did not pick a fight with anybody, I just unsubscribed, many months ago.

This is well known. An artifact of reddit where you can be banned from dozens of subreddits in a wide swath for simply making a comment in any "undesirable" subreddit. While that summary ban action is celebrated on reddit, it is under no circumstances tolerated here on Voat. Should that action happen to you here on Voat, you are expected to raise hell about it to bring attention to mod abuses.

There was way too much mod drama on it. I did agree with the censorship because the entire rest of the shitty site is anti Trump with the possible exception of KiA. Now there is no moral quandary here with no censorship whatsoever and mean words to scare away SJWs.

Go to The_Donald. There will be a big notice saying it is set to private, and a blue button at the bottom that guides you to a message page. I got a confirmation that the message has been sent when I did it, but no response yet. It has only been a few minutes.

I agree, but let the original voaters be suspicious for a bit. They think users and mods on r/The_Donald are in conflict, which I don't think is the case. We're against the admins.

Goats never stop being suspicious.

If there is truly no conflict between the users here and the mods here, that is between the users and mods. Your community can operate as you please. You will not corrupt Voat. Personally I don't trust those who held positions of power on reddit for this long; I see the possibility of cooperation between the reddit mods and the reddit admins as being too great.

Voat raised significant amounts even before the influx. That said I welcome you all here, your contributions in terms of donations and content are all appreciated.

But I will be keeping my eyes on you. c:
