Voat will be down for a bit this weekend as we update various components of the system and finalize the API code base in anticipation of a limited public release next week.
This update will wrap up nearly all the large changes we’ve needed to make to Voat’s underlying code base since we started refactoring months and months ago.
It’s been a long road but we are finally here.
A couple random notices:
We’ve taken back the user account @Voat and @VoatBot for Voat’s own purposes. These accounts were inactive and appeared to be registered by squatters. @Voat is a system account we currently send messages from and @VoatBot will become Voat’s open source bot that the community can help develop.
Looking over Voat’s user names I think we might offer some of these squatted names up for auction if there is a demand. Just a thought.
I’ve modded @Cynabuns to a couple system subs to help with spam. @Cynabuns will perform only spam deletion in these subverses. Many have asked us to extend our trust to some of the community to help with various things. This is our first step in this direction.
- Most of the major things are done. We've changed infrastructure things with markdown rendering, urls, and user profile pages so if you notice anything off, just ping me. Thanks everyone.
- There has been some concern expressed about the mod limit for system subs. I will post something tomorrow about this topic so everyone knows what we are moving towards.
