Do not delete "old". Flair it.

Also, if the users want to ask questions maybe you should consider that?

You do not possess any special qualifications that puts you "above" the users. Meaning they may want questions, so you may have to make a daily/weekly question thread.

If many users are doing it then that is what the community wants.

Remember, on reddit the mods make the rules and the community has to deal with it or GTFO. On Voat the mod who does not bend to the will of the community is not a mod for very long.

You don't represent the community at /v/pizzagate, buddy. You're concern trolling, twisting my words, and building up straw-men to tear down. I never said nor implied I am "above" the users. I also never said questions are not allowed; I merely said the submitter needs to at least provide a source or make some attempt at research. We will have standards for our content, here. If you don't like it, too bad. The community here wants good content that isn't buried in a pile of garbage.

Here's the deal, refugee. Voat is hosting pizzagate, and the way things are done here are different than where you came from. @kevdude and I are doing what we can to keep mods like you from sinking to -43ccp, and being removed for shitting up the place.

As far as you are concerned, @kevdude is one of your best friends whether you like it or not. He knows what's going on, and a lot of the reason this site is as free as it is, is because of him. If he has an issue with something, there's probably a very good reason why.

Acting hostile towards him won't help anyone. Join the discussion, and help hash something out with him.

@kevdude and @cynabuns are here to help, and @First_Post_King has also presented some very good words.

concern trolling,

How?

Funny, I support you there. I am taking issue with you wanting to call everything that doesn't fit your personal standards "spam".

@millennial_falcon @kevdude & @crensch, @First_Post_King for good measure

I know you guys both have great intentions. You both have have particular view points & different language/frameworks for talking about things.

I need you guys to work your differences out. @millenial_falcon you need to listen to kevdude, and that might mean trying to see the intent of his post rather than thinking he's just concern trolling. @kevdude I think you're misunderstanding @millenial_falcon due to some miscommunication, language issues. Let's define some terms, I'm going to use voat language for these so we have a common ground

Things that will get deleted from PG

  • Spam - stolen advertising
  • Against the rules - anything that goes against the voat site-wide rules, including illegal content such as CP
  • Against the PG rules - anything that goes against the PG sub rules
  • Duplicate - An exact duplicate repost, or a concurrent very similar repost (? we are thinking of folding concurrent same topic posts into one for better discussion/knowledge sharing)

Things that WONT get deleted from PG

  • Posts about things that were already found out. Eg the jimmy comet profile pic is some ancient greek boy lover statue - I knew that weeks ago but leaving it, the post is obviously popular and a lot of people obviously didnt know about it

I know when @millenial_falcon says spam, he means most of the above. I also think of spam as most of the above, i.e. 'unwanted content' etc. But we're not here to debate semantics, and I don't care so I;m happy to adopt your terms.

Is there anything there that either of you disagree with or that I've missed?

edit - adding some things I missed.

Actions speak louder than words. Who cares whether you explicitly said it or not, if you actually act like it?

Not letting the community act and decide on posts/topics for itself speaks volumes about how we're viewed by the mod team.

Spam is stolen advertising, marketers making a post when they should be buying a sidebar ad.

Spam is a catchall term referring to anything unwanted that is posted or sent repeatedly. For example, last night, when trolls/shills started spamming the same incredibly dumb 1-minute troll video multiple times within minutes of each other. I think the vast majority of the community here supports excluding submissions that are not relevant to this sub. It's no different from deleting posts about auto repair in a sub about hiking, except that in this case part of the problem is a deliberate attack trying to make our efforts ineffective.

Edit: I agree that technically what I was referring to is called flooding, but you're playing semantics. Flooding is a problem, as are irrelevant posts, and this has nothing to do with censorship. Concern trolling and threatening that Voat admins will kick out mods for removing shitposts is the actual attempt at censorship. Censorship by flooding and dilution of useful content.

This sub has dramatically more spam than it had... yesterday. Yeesh. I'd throw my hat in the ring, but I'm pretty sure I'd be a bad pick. I do hope you get good moderator candidates.

That's because I was watching new posts most of the day yesterday (in addition to other mods). Today I had to take a break and get off the computer a bit. That's of course why we need several more mods. Share the load.
