Even Atko is pissed :/

It's best to have discussion on subverse rules and let the community decide. That way, mods won't have to do all the heavy lifting and come up with their own rules. Providing a list of pros and cons to each rules with examples would also provide more insight as to how a rule can affect the community.

An easy way to fix this would be to give Mods the ability to modify post titles, with what was changed, and why, publicly visible in the Mod Log (important that last part, to ensure any abuse can be identified).

Or, we can just wait until @Atko and co deliver on their wonderful auto-mod bag of goodies.

I agree that mods should be able to change the titles, but the title changes should be instantly visible by changing the colour of the edited characters to red (or something else obvious).

Went back to reddit, voat is no different.

No. I think the ability to edit your own titles within some time after the publication is already enough for typos etc.. giving the mods unlimited access to titles is just asking for abuse, transparent abuse maybe, but still. If we want to prevent agenda driven moderation, providing redundant exploitable functions is probably a bad idea.

That's... actually a good idea. It would solve some other minor problems too like users asking a mod to correct a spelling error on post.

So that unpopular opinion subs can no longer exist?

Nope, democracy is just another form of tyranny. There is nothing wrong with the site owner making or delegating those types of decisions based on feedback from the users. If the owner turns evil there is nothing you can do about it either way other than move on to the next site like pilgrims seeking their freedom.

I think this is one way that Voat can really help itself while were still hammering out details of what we want to this place to look like. I personnaly think @Atko handled this very well, but I understand why some users have concerns.

What I'd like to see as Voat is built out is a set of tools to give the community a voice. Polls is the most obvious, but I'm sure there are others. That way communities could clearly state their will. With a clear mandate from users, it would be much clearer that mods and admins are acting at the behest of users and not imposing their will.
