What do you mean by "People need to be able to see all upvoats"?

No. I am still new so don't know the ins and outs of every rule. However I have tried to "evangelize" a lot for this website, and get friends to leave Reddit.

The #1 no is always - "Voat's top thread has 60 upvoats LOL. You can't be serious, that place is TINY." People think there is no community to be had here - it would be a shame if they are seeing less than the truth.

Then I was told by another user here that Voat limits upvoats. This would be making us seem much smaller and less robust than we are. That seems extremely counterproductive right now. I have gotten people to promise that they will join when they see a 500 voat thread. People don't want to talk to themselves, or feel that way.

Okay - I get 10 voats per 24 hour day. 1 voat per hour might be reasonable for someone spending the time here I am since I found Voat. Maybe 10 upvoats until you get SCP and CCP both to 200. Then it should be 1-2 per hour. I have been here a couple weeks and my SCP is higher than my CCP. Both real close to 200 each.

However I am spending 4-6 hours a day here. When I hit my limit I leave. it SUCKS.

Contribution Points

Note you have two kinds of contribution points, one for Submission Contribution Points (SCP) and one for Comment Contribution Points (CCP). You are going to want to increase your CCP in order to unlock downvoting abilities and enable expanded upvoating abilities. That means you need to interact with other users, just so you know. ;)

You start with 10 upvoats per day until you hit 20 CCP. At that point your available upvotes each 24 hours are calculated by taking your current CCP and dividing by 2. Downvotes are enabled when you reach 100 CCP.

Growing too fast isn't usually a good thing. Voat is still in alpha and too big an influx too fast might cause major issues

If those people aren't going to come over until someone else makes the website more active for them, I don't want them to.

They want to be heard. They don't want to be talking to wall on a dark corner of the Internet.

I can understand that.

often appearance creates reality. if we made it seem this site was growing faster it probably would. No one wants to be the last to join the new cool place.

I actually heard we limit upvoats!?! That is suicidal when trying to grow a site like this we need to show a big, robust community to visitors now more than ever IMHO.

Not suicidal, its just different than reddit. There you can upvote/downvote to your heart's content without ever commenting. Here you are rewarded for interacting non-trivially with the user base. As you participate, you get more upvoats and eventually the ability to downvoat. It took me ~9 days to get to 100 CCP, but some get it in a day. If you want to lurk and just click arrows all day, then there is a site for that.

Well I am at about 192 SCP and 185 CCP and I've been here a couple weeks.

10 voats up or down sucks for 24 hours. It is making me want to leave. It should be 24 per day minimum for those with enough SCP and CCP.

Big and robust...those words are distinctly not synonymous with Alpha. I think it's best to allow Voat to grow in its own time, not be flooded by anyone else. That would just drown out the unique/uncommon things Voat has.
