Jesus fucking Christ, I really hope you aren't trying to bring Reddit style moderation to Voat.

I think he thinks that this is Reddit with a different URL.

Upvoat the good quality posts, downvoat shitposts and report spam and the signal to noise ratio on the front page of this verse will sort itself out , that is how the system works.

Hope he doesn't bring moderation to all of Voat? You mean bring it to just one subverse that could stand to benefit from proper moderation considering the set goal it has in mind? How come I don't see you complaining about any of the other moderated subs on the site?

This is the standard knee-jerk reaction from all old VOAT users when a new community migrates here.

Please don't take it personally against your community, but we have had several cases where former moderators of Reddit came here and thought they could enforce Reddit style censorship on the posts they didn't like by being Mod-Team-Cancer (@She, anyone? Wasn't there also speculation about @Amalek at one point or another?).

Moderating this verse in whatever manner the mods deem fit is perfectly fine (Take /v/Soapboxbanhammer...please! -rimshot-). It's when they start trying to enforce it on other verses that it becomes a problem.

Also, criticizing other communities is generally frowned on around here. If you don't like a certain verse, there is a filter button on every verse for a reason. Not to say you personally are doing this in a rude way, but just saying it as a general informative statement to all new VOAT-Goats.

Edit: For Example :)

All the new people need to know this isn't Reddit. Reddit culture is meaningless here. Don't export it here. Pun threads, low-effort jokes, and memeshit are cancer and will be treated as such.

Yet the user of the top-voted post in this thread posted a thread criticizing the OP for this this very thing. The hell is this. So far I've read two submissions from /v/whatever claiming low-quality posts are frowned upon—the very thing this OP is criticizing—yet he gets criticized by that same sub. At this point Voat users are making themselves out to be hostile to any newcomers, regardless of what they post.

@TheodoreKent and I are touchy for the same reason: 8-hour old accounts already trying to enforce their culture here. Strict moderation is Reddit culture. It's less necessary because there are fewer low-information idiots killing the signal-to-noise with movie references (again, Reddit culture). Voat culture is to say "Fuck you" to Reddit culture but not concern troll that "something needs to be done" about it. Because when you do that /v/SoapDoxBanHammer uses it as a pretext to further consolidate control of the site for SRS, and that's bad for everyone.

That's a small group of people. The protectvoat subverse is full of thought police. They claim to fight censorship by censoring others...

what you are doing right now is akin to telling the stars where to go. it's deluded. it makes you seem extremely controlling in a not very stable manner.

Also:

Speculation is not the same as a lead. A pizza restaurant in Buttfuck, Alabama with a spiral on its website means jack shit.

Conspiracy theories about Satanism, the Illuminati, and brainwashed assassins are not leads.

Comet Ping Pong is a dead end. If there was anything there, it's gone now thanks to the public witch hunt. Same goes for Heavy Breathing and Besta Pizza.

I appreciate your sentiment, but you need to understand that Voat is very much against moderation except in the case of spam etc. We normally downvoat things that we don't like and move on. That is one of the costs of having a true free speech platform. There is more noise. But at least you can rest assured this subverse will not be banned and posts / threads will not be just deleted.

I don't know how many migrated here today, but just give it some time and the noise will die down. Welcome to Voat by the way!
