I'm not sure about requiring comments to be allowed to post your own screenshots, but I think that there should be a single Screenshot Saturday post each week and that the screenshots are added to it as top level comments by each dev. It should certainly be encouraged that if you participate by posting your work in progress, you also comment on projects by others in the post.

It'd be great if voat had something like AutoModerator to create the threads, too.

I'm currently looking into setting up post flair, but there are two issues with that at the moment. First is that flair isn't working properly at the moment (the ability to set flair was broken in the latest site update). The other is that only mods can set flair for a post right now. Were I not busy with work and my own projects, I'd probably pull down the voat code and PR some fixes and enhancements for that...

EDIT: Looks like they fixed the first problem with flair. Now for the devs to enable users to set flair on their own posts instead of requiring mods to do it...

EDIT 2: Nope, just the JS for the flair popup is fixed. Still can't actually set flair.

EDIT 3: Okay, looks like what the problem is (at this point) is that flair only appears on the post page itself, and not on the subverse page.

I'm with you on requiring comments. I mean, I'm all for driving discussion and participation, but I'd hate to see astroturf comments just so someone can post a screenshot.

I don't mind not having that rule, I just think we should regulate it somehow, so we can keep the thread actually useful. With past Screenshot Saturdays, I'd get no upvotes, no comments, or anything else to let me measure the usefulness of posting, and when I talked to others about it, it didn't sound like I was the only one. I'm okay with having a non-regulated thread, I just want to keep it from getting out of hand.

The amount of feature Voat is missing really sucks sometimes...

Doesn't help that it can take ten minutes or so from adding flair on a post to the flair actually showing up on the subverse page.

We can also sticky the weekly threads for the duration of that day. We just have to make sure not to have too many weekly threads tho

I think we can sticky two threads at a time at the moment. Let me check that.

EDIT: Nope.

It's not about it being possible, just that it clutters the front page of the sub if we have too many too often

I just thought of idea today. If someone doesn't know what sort of game to make, you have a thread once a week to throw an idea out there that you aren't going to use yourself. I just thought of a survival horror game about a in world war 1 today, trying to keep ahead of the German Army, dealing with them trying to Shell you, having people picked off once in a while, etc.
