Seriously, this thread is a big reason why I already like voat better than reddit. I really am surprised that this happened, I never would have thought. Speaks volumes for voat, at least IMO.

Welcome to Voat. If you look around enough, you can almost certainly find subverses for almost any interest of yours. Don't spam or do anything illegal, and you can say whatever you want.

You can hear SRS's shrill scream as another parasite is pulled from our ass.

With Mod Polling, SRS can't do this: https://i.imgur.com/JZltNFH.jpg

I'd like to know how you got the upvote/downvote count on Reddit

do you readily know what mod polling is? I'm curious!

Obligatory.

Glad to see an official statement on this. Strict moderation is fine on subverses specifically created for that purpose.

But when highly generic subs become heavily curated it is a detriment to the entire site.

Keep up the good work based admins.

I would say that in the @system subs it should be user curated, and not moderator curated. The trick though is to make sure people are informed when they up/down-vote something, and that they aren't just voting for the headline. It is very tricky, but after what happened at reddit i want as little centralized power as possible.

Perhaps this new mod voting thing will be the answer though, on reddit that was the biggest problem; mods hated by the community they ruled got to stay.

Strict moderation is fine when it's done following, to the point, the established rules by the community. No exceptions allowed.

This case and the usual moderation problems we have come to know and despise from several places are the polar opposite of strict moderation: moderators abusing and forcing their own agendas by applying the rules when they follow their intentions, stretching them when necessary and ignoring them when they don't. In some places where the "cancer" has become terminal, the moderators do as they want without care and basically "own" the place.

Once again Voat's admins have proven their commitment to the community. Thank you guys!

Honestly it sounds like it would be subject to abuse. I guess we shall see.

I am glad to see that moderators are held to a high standard on Voat though

All forms of power can be subject to abuse. I agree with @causuistry, it'll be an interesting experiment.

Really, just the fact that they came out and said it, rather than doing it and not saying anything speaks volumes.

Puttitout and Atko have not sold out that's why. They've maintained a control on their vision of what the internet should be. They're great leaders. All hail and so forth!

Thank you guys for excising cancermods before they become terminal.

This is what killed reddit and it is what will save Voat.
