I don't think deleting content is in the spirit of voat (IMO) and just removing them from random drops should be enough.

I like the idea. There are already several mechanisms in place which delete inactive subs but what is missing is automated deletion if subs which did not receive a single post for 365 days. Some subs may be valuable to keep alive (think poetry where someone left a wonderful poem which isn't published anywhere else) but majority would most likely be okay to delete. I'd love to hear some more thoughts on this though. Pinging @puttitout, @nurdoidz, @zook and @danielflamino among others :)

Based on my experience with Voat and Reddit so far, I am indifferent about whether or not subs should be deleted after a certain amount of time if content has been submitted there. Though, I will say that I always had an idea that, after a set time with no post activity, a sub should become archived and replies or new posts should be disabled. Then, it would be possible, somehow, for the community to petition to renew the sub for new posts. I have no research or experience with this idea, though, so I don't know how well it would work.

Oh that's true, I hadn't thought about preserving original content.

Perhaps we could have a BestofVoat or VoatGems subverse where we save all the old but valuable Voat content.

This sounds like a really good idea.

Put them up for new ownership and make it publicly known that they're available for taking over (maybe maintain a list somewhere). Don't destroy the old content :(

Perhaps delete a subverse may not the best solution for all cases, instead I would like a mechanism to automatically fire any mod, who has no activity in this sub for a year.

We may treat subverses as domain names, since it has no mod, it'll become a free sub and the first one who click some kind of "become the mod" button will take over it.
