I'm OK with v/askgoat becoming a default. The site kinda does need a default, laid-back Q/A sub.

I think you guys seriously fucked up by handing v/askvoat over to u/she despite the community's widespread protest. This was a major mistake. I can not stress enough how colossally shitty this decision was. Learn from it and move forward, but I wouldn't advocate having the sub ripped out of her hands, as that does set a bad precedent.

Just.. for the love of goat, don't ever again hand a subverse over to someone that the community openly despises.

Who says they can't fix their mistake? Remove @she and bring back v/askvoat as a default subverse.

The problem is that the rest of the active moderation team on v/askvoat doesn't have a problem with @she, and they are doing what they can to turn parts of Voat into a "safe space" through the use of subs like v/disagreebutton or by arbitrarily limiting the number of people who can downvoat. Right now, if @she was forcibly removed from her position as head mod, the most likely outcome would be "one of the other active mods would become head mod, wait for the controversy to die down, and bring @she back on as a new low-ranking moderator.

I think that given the "style" of site Voat is designed to be, a default Q&A style subverse is a necessity. I also don't think it can be AskVoat right now, given the issues. Of the alternatives, AskGoat is probably the better choice simply because I can imagine AskVoat2 being defaulted and then having hundreds of "What happened to AskVoat 1?" threads posted.

Also, I think AskVoat2 looks aesthetically unpleasing.

..and thinking about questioning a goat amuses me.

Why do we need defaults at all? If askgoat takes off (which it seems to be doing) it'll quickly float to the top and askvoat will stagnate.
