I don't think there's enough content for me yet for that to happen, but I might not have discovered the right subverses yet.

Think of it kind of as a trickle-down thing. It started up in the big arteries like funny and gifs, but the users will slowly begin to trickle down into more and more niche subs and interaction will pick up at that point. Just takes time, patience; A feature I'm thoroughly lacking in, haha!

Have you considered implementing the feature?

You could break up your expectations into strings and loop through them with a delay. It's a matter of how you iterate.

I think voat should implement a trending subverses feature like Reddit did a while back. It will definitely help with discovery and drive traffic to those smaller subs prompting growth.

Exactly. New subs are being created and more will show up daily.

Good analogy. I think it's kind of like a mudslide.

First step? Saturation.

Personally I'm using the lull and posting things into smaller subverses that while I find interesting, may have gotten buried on a bigger site

This is probably the way to go. I feel like part of enjoying content is also creating and/or sharing it.

Basically, the usage is different. In the future, you can keep to smaller subs if you prefer this experience.

Oh I totally agree that it's great and as I said I probably just haven't found my subverses yet. I also find that I spend far more time in discussion with people here (rational, friendly discussion that is) than on that other site. Because it isn't all just dank memes and justice porn there's room left for discussion and learning something from eachother.

Well you can't entice people to join if there is no content, so if you create content, other people will follow and then you don't have to.

"Away from computers this weekend."

Which means you'll still be checking in on your phone whenever you can. Not judging, this is my life lol

I'm the same. One of the reasons I made the jump from rdt was I thought I would waste less time here. But I find I'm just searching for content a little harder. Thats the only difference for me. Still spending too much time.

Yeah, it's called Boats for Voat. It's not totally comprehensive yet but hopefully it will fet there if more people download it. Only one I could find so far.

A fresh start is great. I was too conservative at posting on that other site. So I'm gonna make the best of this one.

I think it should be "Reddit, without the bullshit."
