Sounds like a great way to deplatform problem subs exactly the way Reddit does. Sub causing problems for advertising? Click private and boom it's gone. Sounds shitty to me and like a step backwards. Looks like your gonna do it anyway so my feeding back is kind of a waste of time. I mean why even bother asking for feedback if you declare this is what your gonna do anyway and not even explain why this is necessary or beneficial to us users?

Us users who have heard shit like this before and been burned by it.

Never once have I considered this as a way to silence subs, but with anything we need to think about things like this.

Maybe force a Vote by the community before allowing a change?

Why do you think private subs are necessary? I'm curious. I can think of plenty of subs I would rather not see again but that is just me being a censoring asshole in my own head.

What does voat gain from private subs?

IMO Subs should be private/gated at time of creation or not at all.

People that post in a sub shouldn’t have to worry about the sub later going public and private shouldn’t be a way to close formerly public subs.

Maybe even give them a different prefix to avoid squatting.

/p/ vs /v/ for instance

Allow everyone to read the subverse but only allow certain people to post?

Jootube uses similar to suppress vids - they make unsearchable, no comments, etc.

Save the drama... he's just asking.

read what he's posting. This is just a notification of what he planned on doing. He just thought everyone would go along and he would't get any kick back.

He sounded like God told him to do it.
