A major part of the problem back on reddit was the admins deciding which mods and communities deserved to be the center of the site. That's how guys like davidreiss666 end up running the whole damn show.

The way this is working out is better. /v/askvoat has no default status, so it won't show up on the topbar, and they'll have to work for their subscribers just like /v/askgoat

If you don't like her, vote with your feet. A couple of hundred of other voaters have already.

If you've ever tried to grow a small sub (which I'm actually trying to do with /v/howto), you know that it's damn hard to make up for an early advantage where everybody was just flat out defaulted into membership of another one. It's a hell of a head start. What are your suggestions for actually gaining the kind of visibility that months as a default bought askvoat?

I don't have any other than hard work, but if the main sub is actively pissing the majority of it's userbase off then it won't be hard to spread the word of an alternative and encourage a migration. That's how voat got going after all.
