It's not needed, 99% of RES features are native and you can just suggest what to add to Atko.

It's more like every five minutes out of 60 is "Voat Moment." As a noob, so far so good, when it's up.

If I wake up and see the site online it's a voat day for me

I think with the planned reddit boycott, voat will refuse to load the entire day.

What Reddit boycott?

On July 10th, some parts of reddit are trying to stage a boycott for the entire day to send a message to the reddit admins. How effective that will actually be is a bit debatable.

I'm curious if there is some kind of contingency in order to keep voat up on that day. I really have no idea how Atko is doing all this, but I get the feeling that he's some kind of one-man band. We should help however we can.

I can see him on one of those jury-rigged electric bicycles hooked up to the inflamed Voat servers, pedaling hard to force as much internet through.

That is how the internet works right? Like a series of tubes?

At least this time he has a little bit of notice.

No way he can know when reddit is going to do something stupid and send a flood this way. So he either has to spend money he can't afford, to upgrade server capacity for people who might not be coming, or get caught off guard and crushed when everyone shows up unexpectedly like has happened twice in the past month.

I don't know how successful this boycott will be, but it would be wise to expect some uptick in visitors and prepare for it. It's also a golden opportunity to win converts.

I hope Voat can stay up July 10-12, or it will be No Internet Weekend for me...

Yes. Please pleaseeee voat (my new favorite site!) do everything you can not to sink with that amount of traffic. Let's show everyone how great of a place voat is!

Voat should frantically expand their severs in preparation.

Keep the site up and I'll be on here trying to crash it.

Remember remember the 10th of July

That's the day when Reddit started to die

The day of joy for Voat and Reddit's frown

Also the day which Voat servers shut down

Anyone with some inside info know if Voat will be ready to handle the traffic? I'm sure there are lots of people like me with a small capacity for boredom who will visit reddit on accident during a lunch break if there's nothing else to do.

I think they already upgraded the servers after the subreddits went dark over at Reddit.

some other sites my, er, ahem, friend visits, kickass torrents (kat.cr now) and TPB have mirror sites. is that something that can be set up to offset the load. im satisfied with a slightly stale mirror if i can at least get some links to interesting stuff during the day.
