I am not surprised, the amount of mentions this site has in articles and blog posts following the Reddit shitstorm must be a dream for SEO.

There are a lot of sleazebag journalists talking about Voat as a haven for child porn (echoing right-wing calls for censorship in the late 90s), but I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity. As long as Atko can keep us up and running, I predict a steadily-growing community.

One thing I have noticed is that many of the websites shit-talking Voat are owned by Condé Nast, which also owns Reddit. The other ones tend to cater heavily to sjws.

I think what's crazy is how anti-free speech some of the articles are. They claim that Reddit is a business and can censor what it wants, but then in the same article, they will say that leaving Reddit is an over-reaction. Yeah, if a business centered around discussion is going to censor what I say, I'm going to leave. Even if I would not normally say things they would censor, if they have made it clear that they will just censor anything that they do no like, then it's time to leave.

right-wing calls for censorship

It wasn't just the right-wing. Tipper Gore was one of the leaders of the musical censorship movement.

I've seen just heaps of child porn since I got here. What a bunch of idiots. I wonder if they actually heard that somewhere or if it's manufactured out of whole cloth. I'm leaning towards the latter.

If that regional interest is correct, then Japan must really hate fat people. /s

It's Voice Academy of Tokyo, it's a company that does singing and voice acting. There's also a Voat Hotel in Japan which is pretty nice

Side Note: voice acting is very serious in Japan, the highest pay can be up to USD $599,999 per year but applicants are more likely to be run over by a car in 2 years than actually having a voice acting career

It isn't hard to beat digg in its current state, it looks and feels like any mod curated aggregation site, ie. shitty and filled with ads disguised as articles.

Speaking of rank. /u/Atko needs to fix the ranking algorithms. There's no reason a new post should be buried pages deep under posts that are weeks old. I just made a post in /v/news about a drive by shooting at a Dallas TX Police department with videos and live scanner of the pursuit! This is live content that could make voat more interesting but no will see it until it's over. The front page of voat is full of stale stuff from earlier today while there's tons of content pouring into new.

TLDR: Fix voat's ranking constipation!

It's one of the weakest aspects of reddit - that you can't mark topics as read - and there isn't much effort to combine duplicate links.

Since they started with an entirely new code base - aiming higher would be nice.

awesome!

change is hard. when you're new to them, online communities can be intimidating. this site may be a "reddit clone" or whatever, but its got its differences and nuances (for the better from what i can tell so far). seeing these numbers as well as other user posts, the outages, and articles about the exodus shows i'm not the only noob here and that is comforting.

Exactly. Reddit dethroned Digg years ago because Digg did not understand its community. Today, reddit is the dethronee.

Voat usurped the throne from Reddit

I remember switching to Reddit via Digg 4.0. The new community was refreshing. As long as this place can stay up despite the influx of new people something weird is bound to happen.

Digg was such a fun time. I remember how easy it was to get a highly dugg post, at times. There were some super posters but many came from small-time users, at leasr early on.
