I definitely think reducing operating costs is a priority, and I know you need help to do that in reasonable time. We have people from /v/Linux actively working to help with that process.

Specific parts Putt has stated a need for volunteers so far:

  • Lawyer
  • Community relations
  • Marketing
  • Sales

Putt, could you go into some more depth sometime soon about the exact work that needs to be done in these categories? And are there any other roles that need to be filled? I think the more specific the stated roles are the more likely people are to reach out.

EDIT: Also, if people stay true to their pledges and if more pledges come in, I'm sure that with reduced monthly costs and more volunteers we can run Voat long-term and smoothly. If you intend to donate monthly and are not on the list I linked to, please contact me so we all have a better understanding of how much we can reasonably hope to bring in each month on our own.

EDIT 2: Also, that title is amazing.

issues left unresolved

-you are not being transparent with the actual cost, @puttitout.

-you are not being transparent with who all is in the dev team.

-you have had over 3 months to explain these magic ban rules, but you have failed.

-you have had over 3 months to explain why you were caught manipulating users' CCP (including @Techius and @SaneGoatiSwear )

-you have neutered, then nuked, then killed chat.

-you have ostracized your core userbase in favor of SJWs from SRS, in v/soapboxbanhammer and v/protectvoat

you have either been played or are playing the voat community. on a number of fronts, not just your fuckery with fake sane and the chat spam.

i would have gladly joined and helped you on the front of house issues, but you've pushed massive behavioral restrictions and censorship, lied to the user base, manipulated users' CCP. you're not worth the penny up the gerbil's ass up the faggot whore's ass.

note how almost all responses are shill responses, not actual meaningful responses. this is how shills work. they think that if you see a bunch of detracting statements in response, you'll disagree with the comment, and disregard it. they think you are that stupid, voat!

Hijacking, but the /v/linux effort is being organized in an outside slack team. Invite link here

Anyone with skills to be useful, feel free to join

Awesome, thank you for that clarification and further detail. I hear some nice strides have been made.

Invite link is dead. I'm a professional sw engineer but don't do web dev, is this something I can contribute to or should i look elsewhere?


[–] SecularPenguinist 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

link is dead. I'm a Linux systems administrator. I can't commit too much time but I can definitely spare some cycles.

Community relations with this community is easy. Just don't put up with any bullshit, call them all faggots and slap the shit out of them if they get lippy. It's how you earn respect in the wild.


[–] TheodoreKent 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

Yo, @puttitout, let me and @13osiris13 team up to be your dream team of content writers. I promise it will turn out real good.


[–] Milo_Carlin 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

We've been informed that if you don't keep to a strict code of censorshop, Donbuster the niggerfaggot rapey inbred pajeet will OUTRIGHT BAN YOU in slack. it's a terrible platform conducive only to faggots sucking each other off, like donbuster.

I'm not the most tech savvy, but would switching to the new cloud storage technology be an option to save cost? I plugged in the cost 6000$ in for azure, and sia tech claims it would only cost 550$ for the same amount on their cloud network. I have no clue if this would work or not, but I thought I would mention it.


[–] 9234022? 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I'm also not certain, but that's definitely worth mentioning. Is Sia Tech an open source company?
