Oh yeah, well I got a Voat account with 100+ CCP, with unlimited upvoat and downvoat rights, IN ADDITION Mod status on /v/fallout. Bids start at $125.

I agree, dear sir, however, I think if you consult the dictionary in the library to your left, you will find that the correct spelling of said ocular device is, indeed "monocle" as it is derived from the latin (Remember our dear Latin teacher, Prof. Ruffles? Good old James) monoculus, meaning one-eyed.

Now, as you know, dear chap, having written my little screen on the spelling of the name of the aforementioned facial adornment, I will indubitably have committed an equally grievous faux pas, as the Frenchies would have it, vis a vis my own spelling and so forth. I await in earnest anticipation your no doubt astute and elucidating remonstrance of said grave error.

Your in Excellence, ServiceStud, Esq.

And what we all learned from GMail was that invite only web services are always a terrible idea and will absolutely kill your service.

It can go either way. I remember joining Facebook as a sophomore in college when it was first starting out and you needed a .edu email account to register. It grew in popularity because all the high schoolers wanted in on the cool college-exclusive club. Then they slowly opened it up to everyone only after the hype built up.

The difference is with a social network it only works if your friends are using it. With an email provider it doens't matter what kind of email your friends have.

Ello's peak is more popular than voat is now. But Voat is currently more popular than Ello.

Voat's adoption curve isn't quite as vertical as Ello's was. I kind of got the feeling that Ello was being hyped by the media. Voat's growth seems more organic https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=voat%2C%20reddit%20alternative%2C%20Ello&cmpt=q&tz=Etc%2FGMT%2B7

A guy kept creating accounts named Amalek[number] and posting the same crap about Jews, War on the White Man, and Voat censorship.

He would post until he got to -50CCP and create another account.

[–] Sops 2 points 30 points (+32|-2) ago  (edited ago)

Voat's new censorship

Downvoating is what reddit uses to silence dissenting views.

People don't typically upvoat, even if they like something. They will just look at it.

bah bah bah, same copy paste spammed 200 times all over voat

If that becomes a thing, there should definitely be a restriction on who can, such as X amount of CCP and/or SCP. For a while there were people that were just creating tons of spam accounts to upvoat their own shitty posts that were being downvoated by the community at large. This would ensure, or at least help prevent, those that just made a ton of accounts to spam can't perpetually invite more of their own spam/troll accounts/friends.

https://lobste.rs has an invite only system set up and it shows who invited who. I think if a user misbehaves, the person who invited them is removed or has their invite privledges revoked. If voat were to stick with invite only, that seems like the best system for it.

Can you handle the power to invite to voat? Personally that's too much responsibility for me.

I got this when I was trying to create a new account just now. Anyone notice that? How do you send invites?

Edit:
I can also notice they are now adding a "# remaining" for the "Load More" button, and the 'load more comments' happens on the same page! This looks like an update to Voat UI as a whole.

Thank you for all your efforts. You and @Atko are good people. I wish you both all the best. It would be super if you two could organise an AMA with the community. I'm sure a lot of voaters and voaterettes would love to have a chance to participate in such an event.

Btw, a 'don't send replies to my inbox' option would be much appreciated because RIP my inbox :)

Any idea about how long voat will be invite-only? If you don't mind, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is curious as to the reason for the change. Some people are suggesting that it has something to do with excessive shitposting, but I figure you or @atko would be the best people to ask about that.

I didn't know you were an Admin till I looked through your account. Would be nice if you got user flairs so it would be easier to identify admin comments.
