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?

Seems to be the compromise according to people's concerns.
