Voat is just SO much better for the user. You can see up/downvoat ratio, block subverses, load images in comments, use superscript with the click of a button instead of ^^^doing ^^^shit ^^^like ^^^this, and there's apparently subverse chatrooms and probably more shit I haven't discovered! Why didn't reddit have this? I'm staying for the long haul.

Its got a lot of good, but it also missing a lot of features like a hide button, it also has some head scratching features like dragging a link (even accidentally) brings up a share a link overlay which is more annoying than useful and needs an option to turn it off.

The problem with Voat at the moment is that it's not very appealing to the casual user. Back on Reddit, people would just upvote most of the interesting content for me and it would be refreshed every few hours. Here on Voat you actually have to go through all the content only to find very few good submissions and then having to wait almost a day for the new submissions to make it to the top. Most subverses I was subscribed to on Reddit are pretty dead over here, generating only about 5 submissions per day.

This makes my frontpage pretty shitty so I switch to /v/all but all I see are the same memes, complains about reddit, and introductions being repeated over and over again.

Now I know what you're thinking, this could all be fixed if people like me would contribute more to the community, but you gotta understand that I do all of my lurking on mobile, usually when I'm at work or late at night laying in bed with insomnia. There's no way in hell I'm going to contribute much when almost every website only allows you to view their shitty broken mobile sites. Hopefully it gets better for us casuals in the next few days.

Try switching to rss on mobile. I often get to comment before everyone else because of rss

Creating tables is neat, too.

There still some missing features from RES and they need to fix the algorithm of the site. I hope they update the site regularly, that will make people feel like the owners do care about the site.

The best part about it though is yes, it's alpha still. Voat has tons of promise, which is what I'm excited for. (They of course need to act on that promise, but for the moment, I'm excited for what Voat has to offer)

There are tons of features coming, atko was a pretty active Dev before the FPH saga hit he has prettymuch been focusing on the servers since then.
