I just remembered another argument: Cake days encourage shitposting. So let's just stop this shit now and never mention it again.

I can't even remember all the times where people's cakeday post is just them talking about how they don't know what to post for their cakeday. I tried to downvote everyone of those I saw on Reddit, but the post always went up like a fucking Christmas tree.

Not to mention you get shadowbanned for downvoting too much on reddit, what a shithole.

You need balance. There can be no good posts without bad posts to contrast and define them. If every post is special and good then no post is special nor good since they all would be at the same level. One person's garbage is another person's gold but I do agree that reddit cake days encourage shit posting for fake internet points. At least on voat those points matter... you cant spam upvoats without getting ccp in return.

I'd argue that it's entirely possibly to have a thread without bad posts. Also, having shitposts in a thread doesn't make the non-shitposts automatically "good." The quality of a post stands on it's own. Adding shitposts just lowers the overall quality of the thread.

That's simply not true. If every post is good, all posts don't magically become less good.
That's like saying that the generation of men who fought in WW2 weren't heroes because all of them did it. Absurd.

Let's let reddit be the place of bad posts and expect voat to be the place of good.

I was on reddit for years but never had the same account for more than 6-7 months. Cake day? What's that?

Never understood cake day and didn't bother to post my last 3. No point whatsoever in the proverbial circle jerk of things. Quality posts for a Quality Voat!

But think of all that karma...no, no fuck that. Fuck that karma shit. Imaginary internet points from strangers on the internet? what the fuck have we become as a species.

I can assure you they are real! Go to your local bank and ask if you can make a withdrawal, when they ask from which account just say your voat account, they will probably hesitate at this moment... at which point you should take out a gun and demand they give you all the upvote cash! Then you can draw blue triangles on all the money you just stole.

This is the worst way to rob a bank.

Walk in. Wait in line. Slide an envelope with written instructions over to the teller saying to give you all the money in their drawer. Take money. Leave.

You'd be surprised how much you'd get away with doing that. There's an AMA on that other site where a guy talks about his successful life as a bank robber using the above method. He was only caught when he turned himself in.

Hate to break it to you, but your CCP score is the new karma...

It's actually much worse because CCP has value. Shitposting is inherent on voat because people need CCP to get full site privileges.

I have nothing against keeping all the cake day stuff in your sub. If it leaks into other subs though, it gets annoying.

maybe we could have voaters receive a message on their cakeday and a link to v/cakeday and have no flair or tolerance on the rest of the site?

As I get older, I hate it more and more. Nothing worse than hearing "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" each year. Usually since my B-Days suck so bad.

How is someone wishing you a happy birthday at all a bad thing? "Hey, I remembered it's your birthday and wanted to wish you a happy one!"

"FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE."

I have a cousin who didn't want candles on their cake. I'm still not sure how old he is. He won't tell anyone lol. I think he's around 40 though.

I never really celebrate my birthday, sort of by choice, sort of by chance. It's July 3, so by the time it rolls around everybody's trying to celebrate something else. It's fine with me; birthdays are a dated tradition(that'll never go away, but whatever). Existence is no longer a daily struggle.
