I told you he was abducted by aliens!

Also, I told you it was fucking disk space. But no... Nobody listens to me!

[–] PuttItOut [S] 8 points 149 points (+157|-8) ago 

They don't listen to me either.

[–] TheBuddha 7 points 76 points (+83|-7) ago 

It's a 503 error. That's almost always disk space. I was informed that my speculation made me a kikeshillniggerfaggot and that you'd 'more likely' been kidnapped by SS Jews.

So, we had our weekly guitar thread around the burning embers of the preview site and I decided to blame it all on aliens.

Man, you got so many anal probes in my regaling folks of your plight! Damned aliens!

Anyhow, good to see you're okay. Take a breather, you've earned it. Give a notice when BTC can be donated again?

[–] KatHarzso 1 points 25 points (+26|-1) ago 

We're listening. Well, at least I am. Murphy's Law went into effect here, anything that could go wrong did go wrong while ya needed some quiet time. Thanks again, @Atko!

Hope you had a wonderful visit with your mother. If there is anything I can do with whatever limited capabilities I have, let me know. I appreciate having this website around, and I definitely appreciate what you do. I look forward to when we can start donating again. :)

[–] DieselBustersYes 5 points 9 points (+14|-5) ago 

So many conspiracy theories and now there's finally closure.

[–] Glory_Beckons 1 points 10 points (+11|-1) ago 

I mentioned it too, a few hours before Atko fixed it, back here:

Possible things that could cause this:

  • A harddrive / partition is full. Could be something as trivial as the partition where log files are saved.

Although I should have known it couldn't be the DB, since we knew the API was still running at the time.

[–] TheBuddha 3 points 4 points (+7|-3) ago 

Yeah, the API was up so it wasn't the DB. They're almost certainly switched on the same inbound hardware, so it wasn't a configuration error. It was a standard code and not one of CF's gibberish codes. I'm not an expert but I'm pretty fluent in the field.

[–] Alpha_Voat_Protecter 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I never saw tbat comment when I was on the preview site.

[–] KatHarzso 5 points 9 points (+14|-5) ago 

You pretentious dick, I listened to you! I DID! I sat down at your fucking feet and gave you not only one ear, but TWO.

[–] TheBuddha 4 points 7 points (+11|-4) ago 

Well, I meant the important things, but music is important. You're different than most. See? You're exceptional. Never let 'em too you otherwise.

I'm should start a cult.

[–] ThorssonTrump 3 points 3 points (+6|-3) ago 

hello, voat. @puttitout is yanking your chain. in no way does a week with his (((mother))) explain:

no subverse transfers for a year

no ads, no donations for months

no transparency with the userbase (the above is a perfect example of a textwall with near-no actual information (lame excuse with no evidence, and as much info as the 503 page gave us))

no chat

and more!

@puttitout will never respond to this, because @puttitout isn't justin chastain, and the canary is meaningless because there's no dead man's switch.

[–] heygeorge 4 points 7 points (+11|-4) ago  (edited ago)

@PuttItOut, this man [@TheBuddha] deserves a sitewide That's Dr. Nigger tag post haste!

Thank you for giving us this sandbox.

[–] TheBuddha 4 points 3 points (+7|-4) ago 

Damned right!

[–] ExpertShitposter 4 points 1 points (+5|-4) ago 


[–] gardellaforgot 3 points 69 points (+72|-3) ago 

Thank you @PuttItOut and @Atko

[–] Marou 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I created a gab Voat.co group to share info and news when there is voat downtime.


[–] Crensch 9 points 54 points (+63|-9) ago 

We love you, Putt. Do what you need to do, and ask of us whatever is needed.

[–] Slayfire122 5 points 34 points (+39|-5) ago 

You can start by deleting yourself to free up disk space. Please don't delete yourself

[–] NumbDigger 2 points 12 points (+14|-2) ago 

Would voat still be voat without Crensch though? Who would remind me to hate the Jews?

[–] weredawg 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Delet this.

[–] plankO 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Just the kind of love and admiration I'd expect from a JEW!

[–] jackthebutholeripper 4 points 47 points (+51|-4) ago 

we love you putt. hope your mom is well. i want to bone her, but only to get closer to you

[–] 12654947 3 points 25 points (+28|-3) ago 

He's been doing this for a while but I imagine this makes the top ten creepiest comments he's directly received. Could be wrong though.

[–] Its_over_9000 2 points 12 points (+14|-2) ago 

I can't stop laughing.

[–] MadWorld 3 points 4 points (+7|-3) ago 

@PuttsDad must hand over his account to @jackthebutholeripper.

[–] JohnQCitizen 1 points 6 points (+7|-1) ago 

Godammit Voat. I love ya, but sometimes you make it hard

[–] AmaleksHairyAss 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

[–] digitalentity1497 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago  (edited ago)

God damn.

[–] 12654776 7 points 38 points (+45|-7) ago 

We love you, Putt. Please don't ever forget that.

I'm glad you got to spend time with your mother and go internet-dark for a while. You deserve it. (No golf though??)

The explanation here about the down time will probably sate everyone (in the same way that bugs are probably fixed whenever you address them). I hope you do write a post about yourself sometime soon, because I think that would be a really good time to talk about what ways, if any, we can help you. The Voat BTC wallet seems to be open but no one is donating to it (including myself) because it's unclear whether it's being actively managed. If that wallet is managed and connected to you, we would like to know -- I personally would start rallying people at /v/Goats4Voat again to get monthly cryptocurrency donations sent your way. With server costs decreased I know we can cover everything and hopefully have extra for you as well. Beyond just finances, there are surely things others can do to help alleviate stress from you, and there are plenty of users willing to help in any way they can.

And what do you know! The Canary was updated! Just when Putt made an announcement! Who would have thought??

[–] assee 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

I second this. If there's anything I can do to help @PuttItOut with healthcheck/automation, please feel free to hit me up.

[–] Mr_Quagmire 1 points 8 points (+9|-1) ago 

Completely agree with this. I don't blame Putt one bit for being completely burnt out - but some of that is on him for not asking for help.

[–] TallShortSkinnyFatM 2 points 35 points (+37|-2) ago 

Nice work, biggermaggot!

[–] PuttItOut [S] 5 points 48 points (+53|-5) ago 

The PG version of the Voat greeting. Doesn't have the same ring but good for a secret passphrase.

[–] TallShortSkinnyFatM 2 points 15 points (+17|-2) ago 

Im TRYING to be fucking nice goddamnjt

[–] BaneGhostiSwear 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago 

you are the worst thing to happen to voat, and one of two things will happen: you will give the site to better, more capable people, such as myself; or, my replacement will come online and in ushering in a new era of actual free speech, voat will continue to dwindle and die.

you failed human rights, you failed all goats, you failed voat and atif. i sincerely hope you get what you deserve.

[–] BaneGhostiSwear 12 points -3 points (+9|-12) ago  (edited ago)

you have time for this comment, but not time for subverse transfers for a whole year, time to take ad money nor donations, time to bring back chat, undo any of the censorship, explain why you ban people for upvoting me, but allow shills to brigade hundreds of thousands of points freely, and more!

you're not fooling anyone, nigger faggot.

[–] tanukihat 10 points 34 points (+44|-10) ago  (edited ago)

@PuttItOut what are your plans to hire another admin, and take some of this strain off your back while providing a second set of eyes and ears on the site?

Edit: I don't know why people would downvoat this. It's a simple question and it could help prevent things like the recent incident.

[–] uvulectomy 3 points 9 points (+12|-3) ago 

Hire? What kind of salary could he possibly offer that would entice someone to put up with all of our autistic screeching on a regular basis?

[–] RevanProdigalKnight 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

I see "hire" as more of a general term for bringing someone else on in this case.

[–] firex726 1 points 4 points (+5|-1) ago 

I know you're being sarcastic but as people have pointed out we have millions in bitcoin so it should be no issue to hire a dedicated team to handle Voat.

[–] Rotteuxx 7 points 6 points (+13|-7) ago 

What downvoats ?

[–] tanukihat 9 points 5 points (+14|-9) ago  (edited ago)

Give it a second to update, it's at +4, -2.

Edit: you SBBH faggot

Edit Deux: +15, -5. What the fuck, assholes? Five people don't think we should perhaps spread out the work of our sole, singular, one goddamn admin?

[–] BlackGrapeDrank 4 points 30 points (+34|-4) ago 

Praise to you and Atko! Voat keeps me sane. I have to be able to call someone a nigger faggot a few times a week or I get angry.

Bullshit aside, let us donate somewhere.

thanks again.

[–] shawnfromnh69 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Voat keeps you sane? You weren't becoming PC or gender fluid were you and voat reversed it?

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

No, it keeps him being a SaneGoat alt! Even worse! (I'm just fucking kidding VOAT! Don't fucking downvote brigade this dude)
