We need to get back to 4-5k active users during most of the day. I see 1.3k now so that's encouraging.

Yeah. I really just want to see some quality content instead of "look at this fatty, how gross"

An example I would call quality would be all the posts of the butthurt the Protein World adverts caused. They made me laugh.

Yes.

Also, i think it would be good if multiple reposts of the same source (image, article, etc. etc.) could be merged into one thread - the Protein World ad was a good example, every second thread on the 1st page was about the same which pushed other content into relative invisibility = off of the 1st page.
Or if people would just browse for a mo before they hit 'submit' to see if it has been currently posted already.

I think we'll eventually get back to 150k. FPH is a phenomenon that's powered by the HAES movement. The more fat-apologism and SJWs infect the larger world, the stronger that counter-movements like this become.

Well if you count all the fatties on here right now as multiple people, I'd say we're pretty damn close already.

the quality of the posts here has severely diminished

The quality?? More like the quantity, ne c'est pas?
Maybe it's only me, but frankly, sometimes on r*****t i was getting increasingly irritated when seeing the 1000th "lol mayo gender, how funny" type of posts clogging up the comment stream. I understand that some people have a lower humour threshold than others and chuckle at every "geddit? winkwinknudge word-pun" repeated to death, but it's not necessary to voice your every chuckle publicly. It clogs up the page and can make quality comments hidden, if the comment section is long enough. Exercise some self control. Quality over quantity - same as with food.

As for the subscriber number - let things happen organically. Least thing we need here is another server overload.

(On a thoroughly personal note, i'd be rather pleased if the feminazi wing of r/FPH (yes, there was such a thing) would stay out of here - even if it results in fewer subscribers. Again, quality over quantity.)

I'm quite curious what do you conaider the femi Nazi behavioural on fph? I kinda thought fph was actually quite far away from any extremism... Beside hating fat people?

Getting a deluge - like, 20-odd in a matter of minutes - of downvotes (and subsequent ban) for disagreeing with a blanket-statement which said "feminists are not ugly" might be a good example.
But i've seen many other examples happening to other people as well.
There was always a small but vocal demographic trying to whitewash the fact that FA/HAES belongs basically to feminism. You can't take feminism out of FA/HAES - same way as you can't take Mao or Stalin out of communism, or Hitler out of the holocaust. Even if it hurts your sensibilities.

I think the numbers will increase in time, I've had trouble loading voat consistently so maybe people know that the servers have been overwhelmed.

I definitely agree that better content should be the goal, the move to voat seems like a good opportunity to increase quality.

It'll grow in time. Reddit's not getting any less restrictive.

I think it's only going to be a matter of time. Once a hamplanet see's their picture up in this new sub, they will come here in droves to tell us about how equal they are to normal humans. And then we will easily make the 150K.

Until then, I'm happy with some high-quality/ low-population style shitlording.

I posted an analogy to poison in my "I'm an asshole" rant that I reckon you might like a read of. Welcome to voat

Once the performance of the site gets stable, I think the number will grow slow and steady. It will depend on how many Reddit users make the switch and if Voat can hold up. Best case scenario in my opinion will be 12 months before we hit 150k. Worst case, never.
