Interesting read, definitely agree with the sentiment that most people don't care and will simply follow the content. I believe anyone who would leave for reasons based on values on principle has done so already. The next wave must be to get those who would come because voat is simply the better alternative.

My suggestion to voat would be to recruit. Tomorrow will be a great day for it, go and engage major content creators; appeal to their egos offer them recognition and a piece of control and do what the best businesses do and take the best talent. Voat will treat them better, voat will even pay them and to be the new and true front page of the web we need the content creators first and foremost and the rest will follow.

TLDR Most people don't care enough to act on principle, they will follow content. We should recruit content creators and tomorrow will be a good day for that. When they cross the line its only a matter of time before the rest follow.

Maybe they should try to snag Victoria now she is not at Reddit, that would be interesting too see the reaction of everyone.

They likely can't pay as well as Victoria can earn elsewhere; Voat hasn't grown enough yet for that kind of thing.

Recruitment might help, but I would say we need to encourage all and especially (former) lurkers to post their own content. We can all make the basis of a great new community

It's called the 1% rule. And I think it definitely applies here.

To be honest I prefer that everybody stays and reddit and we keep our nice community for ourselves. Once voat becomes to big it will become as reddit unless the owners do something against that.
