I managed to get the original picture from someone and am willing to trade for a photograph of @Atko's arms.

I think he was in the middle of that vacation. I'm not sure if this was a nice interruption or a poor one, I can see that being mixed.

As long as the content you guys submit to voat is legal in Switzerland, we will not meddle, not as long as I'm here and @puttitout is on the same page here. I would like to work full time on voat instead of getting a job, but only you guys can make that possible.

The source code is on github, so if Voat get's takenover by corporate influence, or free speech gets stifled, we can take the code and run it elsewhere. Awesome job guys!

Are you the creator of Voat? If so, I'm highly impressed with what you've done and I wish you best of luck with Voat. I'm really glad it was chosen as the reddit replacement. I will do my best to help make this an awesome community to be part of!

If you guys go the rout of advertising, will you be obligated to work in their best interest?

With open mod logs, better voting rules, and the ability to take over squatted subverse, it's already systematically better. Bad people will come, but there are better tools to combat that here.

ability to take over squatted subverse

Reddit did have this. What would really make the system better was if it was automated. AFAIK, the method is the same here as it was on Reddit: make a post about it in a sub, and an admin will give it to you if they feel like it. Voat needs to make it where you can just create a sub over an existing one if all mods have been inactive on the site for 1 month, or the sub has been inactive for 3 months, or something like that.

Yes. There has also been discussion about removing power-hungry mods. It's good to know that @Atko and others are looking at this early. It's a tough situation, and I have confidence that something reasonably workable will be done when it becomes necessary. (And it will become necessary at some point.)

I don't think Voat is going to put up with the kind of word censorship we see at r/technology or the kind of domain censorship we see at r/politics.: D

This used to be the case on Reddit.

The came the voting bots, so the numbers were fudged just a little so they could be shadowbanned without being able to detect that.

Then IDK what happened, the numbers were fudged more and more until they were meaningless, but stayed visible for a long time, confusing people.

Then finally they were removed since they were meaningless anyway. Let's see how it goes here.

Could we please use civil language in public fora? I'm against uncouth gang culture and overglorification of sexual habits as the next man, but it's that kind of talk that makes it hard to defend.

The relatively smaller size of the community at large is refreshing too. I've missed that.

I was genuinely excited to see this site get beat down as bad as it did. Not out of spite, but purely because it pretty clearly shows just how much growth there was, very suddenly.

I'm really happy for voat. I'm also really glad you were capable of getting it up and running as fast as you did. All around, fantastic job.

GG exodus.

And here's to a growing community of voaters into the future. Even if we do, say, never surpass reddit, that one incident I feel has given an impetus big enough to create a sufficient community in voat, which can only grow as reddit becomes more totalitarian.

I think we're way better off going nowhere near surpassing Reddit. Reddit was a lot nicer place to be in the late 2000's when it had a smaller userbase and the average person had never heard of it before.

Reddit probably has their legal team trying to gather incriminating evidence of anything possible, for just-in-caseys, so yeah! Be cautious!

You did all this on a bad internet connection and a tablet. That's dedication! I'm really looking forward to seeing voat grow with you at the helm, Atko.

Nice to be back!

I do feel your pain though, typing this on a small Android tablet on 4G.
