You have my vote.

I had no idea this was removed. That's ridiculous.

  1. On the main page sidebar it states - "Minimum CCP required to downvote in this sub: 0" I want to return to 100 CCP points (comment points) required before a new account can COMMENT OR DOWNVOAT. The forum started like this, most of us went through it with little problem, and it provides a thin membrane of protection for the sub from new account shills which are our worst problem. This CCP requirement was removed without notification months ago, and it does this forum no favors in the shill department. I want to see the 100 point requirement reinstated.

On a side note.. Voat only registers the first 5 pings. Do the others 5 at a time in the comments.

I was all for it, but it isn't the same as it used to be. Apparenty, now it doesn't restrict new users from posting threads, just down voting and that's already restricted site wide. Essential what it would do is shadow ban us from v/all and stop people from accruing points in v/pizzagate. It supposedly changed with the coding for the Linux switch.

1 More Vote! I agree that both @2impendingdoom and @DarkMath should be reinstated. They have always been valuable assets to our cause and ready to fight our adversaries (if you know who I mean). Also I agree that Millennial Falcon has caused some members much aggravation and is not easy to deal with. My vote is for @Vindicator being much easier to reason with and has been more of a help than a hindrance, like some. Also I would like to say that no shills should be suggested for the list, please. The down voating has been profuse, for many of us, as you all well know. I only request one very special addition to be added @Wolftrail7272

DarkMath is a weak link who presents okay information but whose arguments in defense are circular and unhelpful, and often easily exploited by Are_we_sure.

Dark Math? The one who insists i am a useless cunt? He's the whole reason i left, he's destroying this community.

The community can only be destroyed if ppl allow it. I was not aware he called you such a vile name (quoting carmencita). What I am seeing is more and more abusive name calling among members. Results of trolling to create division? Probably yes to some extent and then the sheeple mentality that follows. Free speech is one thing/being abusive to each other is another. If ppl keep falling into that trap then all of the heart that is invested in helping the children is washed down the drain.

It is essential to develop a thick skin and let abusive behavior roll off. It's so much more than being offended...what is happening to the children (and babies sigh) needs ppl to be strong and steadfast in the face of great adversity. It's not about us, it's about them. We have to as a community learn to coexist in a respectful and courteous manner. How can we expect anything to change when we bicker and fight among ourselves?

Thanks for the PING! I have been BANNED from Pizzagate for linking to the removed submissions where a lot of great posts were indiscriminately deleted by M_F. I was accused of SPAM :) I know that DarkMath has also been banned. I can no longer comment in v/Pizzagate

I would like to be reinstated. Anyway I think that, as a community, there should be some consideration of what M_F is really doing here. If he isn't going to apply the rules consistently either he should go or we should think of migrating elsewhere. Anyway, thanks for the opportunity to comment and forgive me for adding five more good posters to your list:

@ESOTERICshade, @independenceday, @Godwillwin, @Jem777, @flyingcuttlefish.

DarkMath is BANNED? He is a fixture here, and a popular one I thought. WTF - @DarkMath if this is just a rumor let us know

Also I am sorry you are banned I had a lot of positive interactions with you from way back. This needs looking at

This isn't right. I request that @Darkmath and @2impendingdoom be unbanned. I see people that are horrible that have not been banned. You guys don't deserve this. 😔

"DarkMath is BANNED?"

Yep, it's true. I got into a tussle with Millenial_Falcon who really didn't like my post about Imran Awan and the Ohio Fair "Accident". I finally posted it here: https://voat.co/v/pizzagatewhatever/2029114

So long story short he banned me. I seriously question whether Millenial_Falcon is on our side.

Thanks for that, I have been posting less but remain committed to the cause. I believe that M_F was punishing me for mocking Highlevelisider's suggestion that we put spy cameras on our senators homes.

I can't vote for Vindicator as an owner, especially with this kind of crap going on. All of the mods have been chosen in private and that's sketchy as fuck.

I have also had problems with MF deleting my posts. sometimes it is warranted, other time's it's not -- and that is very frustrating. I posted about snopes last week and MF deleted it... someone posted the same exact thing two hours later, and that wasn't deleted, and ended up getting over 100 points. I even emailed MF and kindly asked for an explanation, so as to help me understand the rules better, but I never got a response. I have things deleted by MF that wouldn't be deleted by other mods.

Thanks for pinging, VB.

1) I agree with reinstatement of the 100 CCP rule before receiving downvoating privilege.

1a) We may want to consider restarting everyone at 0 CCP in order to jettison the current shills that have been here a long time and have gathered points.

1b) I suggest that we encourage participants to bestow their upvoats mindfully so as not to encourage shills--based on the reading of an intentionally misleading headline, for instance.

2) I agree with installing Vindicator as an Owner who will be actively engaged in the subverse and effectively serving as a moderator.

3) I suggest that Millenial_Falcon rotate out of his moderator position.

4) I suggest that you, VieBleu, rotate into a moderator position.

5) I request that the term “spam” be officially defined and included as one of the posting rules so that we know what we’re being accused of when banned for it and ideally to avoid it in the first place.

6) I suggest that the subverses pizzagate and pedogate be combined because they so often bleed into each other and because much moderating and posting time is wasted in trying to prove a relationship to pizzagate and in deciding where to draw the line between them. Also, potential research connections are easily missed because of this separation.

Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to research these proposed changes and post this, @VieBleu. Mad props to @Vindicator, too, because I've seen you take on a Herculean task and handle it very well here. You both most certainly have my support, and if there is anything that I can do to help in any way, please let me know. I have been here since Day One, although I lurked for the first couple of months (under a different UserName). I lurked for a relatively long period of time, and by the time I was ready to post -- BAM -- I had forgotten my password. I had to create a new account and start from scratch, so here I am.

Back in the olden days of the Pizzagate Forum (i.e., November 2016), new accounts were not allowed to join right in. I distinctly remember how much more civil, peaceful, and pedagogical (a GOOD kind of a "ped" word!) this place was in the early days of this sub. I'm sure that the reason it's gone downhill into a shill-infested swamp is because of the CCP requirement changes that you mention.

So I, for one, would love to see the minimum CCP requirement return. Think of it as our very own Wall, and Mexico doesn't even have to pay for it. This place is a tough enough place to visit, even without the shills, simply because the subject matter is so shocking, gruesome, and nauseating. If we can reinstate the CCP requirements I think the forum will become a much more focused, streamlined place, and we won't have to waste our time dealing with downvoats and insults to the shills who are among us.

So my vote is "YES." Thank you, @VieBleu. I'll help if there is anything I can do. #MakeVoatPizzagateSubforumGreatAgain
