Correct me of I'm wrong, but I think there are defaults. The thing is, they only appear on the front page of Voat when not logged in.

I think OP means the sub listed at the top of the site.

Speaking of which, that list should be rotated or pseudo-random — perhaps a rotating list of the top 100 subs or newly popular subs.

According to sourcecode, there are defaults and it's used in quite a lot of places on the website including the API and the front-page display when a user is not logged in. The question is, how are "defaults" decided?

Or easier, another power mod / owner for every digit subscriber in a subverse, starting from 4 digit.

Ex: 1,000 subscriber require 1 power mod, 10,000 require 2, 100,000 require 3 and so on.

Edit: or if you prefer binary digit, every 2^3 (8), starting from 16,384. Ex: 2 for 16,384, 3 for 131,072 and so on.

Default subs should be regularly hand-picked by the admins, based on quality, regardless of the amount of mods.

I'm good with /v/newsubverses, /v/announcements, /v/voatdev, and maybe even /v/introductions being defaults.

I'm not good with any other sub whatsoever being listed as a default. Reasons being it would be too difficult for admins to control content on defaults, it would be unethical for them to do so anyway, and if default mods are ever corrupted then those corrupt mods would control front-page content just like they do on reddit.
