starting some fresh alts to farm CCP and shit post eh?

[–] WindMillOfPeace [S] 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Absolutely not, I’m not interested in farming. It’s a ridiculous waste of time. However I did bag an amazing new user name and I was attempting to write an intro when I realized I couldn’t. I haven’t done it in a long time, thus the question.

Edit: You are right and prudent for being skeptical and I don't blame you one bit.

Guidelines for the 10 ccp?

[–] WindMillOfPeace [S] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I checked the side bar and didn't see anything specifying it. But after securing my new name I immediately had the idea for a post in introductions and when I clicked submit it said I needed 10 ccp in order to post. I was just curious if it was always this way. It's a non issue at this point, I just don't recall it always being this way but it has been a long time since I did an post in introductions.

Just signed up, first thing is I thought I'd introduce myself but lo and behold you need 10 points! The admins should really put something in the sidebar about it.

Welcome to Voat Yeah, it's only a minor inconvenience though. As long as you're a contributing and participating it's real easy to reach the requirements for participation. I just don't remember it being a thing all the time, though I'm likely mistaken. Given the trouble we're constantly experiencing with shills and shit trolls I am happy for these speed bumps to remain in place. It's a small price to pay.

I guess the problem is, it's surprising...the side bar says

Hello and welcome to Voat!

Don't be a shy! Start a post to introduce yourself to other Voaters!

Makes it seem you can just sign up and submit content here.

You just participate in conversation & comment on posts you like. Your ccp (comment contribution points) is the amount of up votes you receive for your comments. I think it's referred to as karma on reddit (I'm not a reddit user). As I understad it, you require 10 ccp to post and 100 ccp before you can down vote. I don't remember exactly the limit for up voting when you're new, but you will get a pop up explaining it if you exceed your limit.
