I'm shamelessly whoring for karma here, cause I can't upvoat anything until I get 20 upvoat, I need 6 more.

I got shadowbanned, never knew why and took me a while to notice, I was a well behaved redditor, so i have no idea what got me banned. Nobody gets notified for this things. I had to open a second account to be able to comment without being totally ignored.

This seems to be a reoccurring theme with "the other place". I'm not even going to bother finding out if I am too. I don't think I'll be going back. Welcome to voat fellow "goatse".

I've heard that you can get shadowbanned automatically if you either get banned from multiple subs, or get flagged too many times by the spam filter. (First comment here too)

This is the easiest way. Either open Chrome in incognito mode or open Internet Explorer. It's basically like 3 different web browsers that keep their cookies separate from one another so you can check how your account looks while you are logged in while opening another browser to see how the website would look assuming you were just a visitor.

If you look at the profile of someone who's shadowbanned, it says they don't exist.

Transvestites are (nearly) always pre-op, btw. Transsexuals generally have surgery whereas transvestites just like wearing the other gender's clothes. Just some information in case you were interested :)

[–] 5k1ttl3 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

I'd say delete it anyway. The content of a shadowbanned account is still there (YOU can still see your own posts, so they're still in the DB), and Reddit still owns the rights to your content. There's a script somewhere to overwrite all of your posts with whatever you want.

Exactly. It doesn't really send the message until you delete your account. & They also allow you to fill in a little comment box when you delete, so I say go nuts.

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

It sucks to delete an account you spent so much work on though. Even as a lurker just having an account from a long time ago feels good. I like having old accounts to look back on my history.

Too many bookmarks to remember the icons and a lot of the sites I've saved don't have icons.

Do you just bookmark sites without a name so it's just the icon? Wish there was an feature or add on to flip the names on and off.

[–] neveryoumind 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Yeah, I think it's just because they are icons. It's really the best way to do it seeing as pretty much every site has a unique icon now a days.

Can you add an icon for sites that bookmark with just the little blank page icon? Just curious as I have a few of those and then it gets hard to know whats what other than from memory.

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

My understanding is that shadowbanning was designed to eliminate bots.

Using it on real humans is a cruel thing.I came across a user who didn't realise for ages.

It's a little like being sent to coventry or shunning but crueler because you can be unaware that it's being done and just think everyone thinks you're not worth a comment,upvote,downvote.

why in the fuck have i seen so many posts of people saying, "i end up back on reddit every once in a while."

why? what is so critical about that place that you can't stay away? i got off reddit a few weeks ago and have not been back but once when voat was down after FPHgate. then i realized that nothing of value was lost and just went without an aggregation site until voat was back up. it's not like i was just a lurker, either. am i alone in this incredulity? OP's gif is literally all you have to do. why is that so hard for some people?

i really enjoy r/asoiaf. /v/asoiaf doesn't have as much content or discussion. there are a lot of subreddits whose counterparts on voat just aren't there yet.

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

Yeah, voat's smaller userbase means there's less activity going on in niche subs. All the different subs for each specific interest are what I really like about reddit so I'm still going to check it occasionally while that same level of users/content builds up here.

[–] silentbob583 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Exactly. I go to /r/nba, nhl, starwars, gameofthrones, and a few other subreddits on a near daily basis. I'll try to help build their counterparts over here, but especially with NBA and NHL free agency right now, there just isn't enough content/discussion to keep up with what's going on.

Yeah, the smaller, niche subs are still better on Reddit. But hopefully that will change as more people find their way over here.

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

I agree, though it is somewhat of a catch 22. Unless people abandon those niche subreddits and come here to start posting, there will never be much content in the equivalent subverses.

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

It isn't that anything is critical with it, it's just been the norm to check for all types of information. When I have nothing to do I mindlessly click on the bookmark for it. Now that Voat is up and running without going down every five minutes I shouldn't have that problem.
