can you give the users more control of the site? like being able to voat out power mods?

I've thought about this a great deal. In my opinion, the best solution would be a declaration that a subverse belongs to its users and not to its mods. On That Other Site, subs belong to the mods to do with as they please. By stating that subs belong to the users, abuse of mod powers becomes a thing that you can explain.

With that said, I'm not sure how to handle a sudden influx of users who have the intent of disrupting a community. For example, let's say /v/powerboats has an active community that loves all things nautical, including sailboats, and not just powerboats. Let's say /v/motorboats mass subscribes to /v/powerboats and tries to oust the existing community. I'd say the community that previously existed should have priority, even if the new community has numerical superiority.

Although I would imagine this would be a lot less of a problem than a single rogue mod saying, "I own you."

Pure democracy is easily subverted by factions. We should trust only the admins with the ability to decide whether or not a mod is acting against the interests of his community.

Suppose the positive vote result mandated admin investigation and action on the issue instead of a user generated ban outright.

This. I support Voat as a site for FREE speech, not hive-minded echo chamber speech from a single specific ideology that currently makes up the majority of the userbase due to Reddit refugees.

^^^^^^ THIS GUY ^^^^^^ gets it. So many subs got cucked and there's nothing we can do about it. v/Chicago comes to mind. We already know that transferring subs is almost impossible here so there needs to be a way to un-cuck a sub. Hell, I applied to take over a dead sub months ago. Nothing ever became of it.

I think as long as we restrict it's use to active participants of the sub in question it'd be a very nice thing to have

I want to voat out @system from v/whatever. I need that sub for my CSS experiments.
