You may have noticed the intermittent performance of Voat today. It appears we are being probed for expensive endpoints in anticipation for an attack. I cannot accurately assess if this traffic is legit or being used to find weak points in Voat but it has all the signs of being malicious from what I can see. We may be in for an organized attack in the near future.
Because of this I had to patch a few things on live Voat just now, but this is a call to arms, we cannot maintain this code base so we have to get Voat's new code base live as soon as possible. This is now highly critical. We are almost there so help us cross the finish line.

On Rule Changes
I loved getting community feedback. I have a lot to think about now. I am in the process of reading through everyone’s comments and we have some great ideas. Until I feel we can improve Voat’s system, we are not going to change anything. I think it's clear that while our current system isn't perfect, it isn't critically flawed either.
Thank you everyone for voicing your thoughts on this subject.
