How about you try integrating with voat rather than creating your own reddit ghetto?

You do know we have had our own Q related subverse here for some time?

why not come point people to /v/GreatAwakening?

[–] IrritableGimp 0 points 69 points (+69|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Speaking for myself, I've been on Voat since i first knew it existed (appx. 1 month ago). I took Q's warnings serious, and started looking around.....found Voat and a plethora of other interesting sites. I have no clue what is going on with the two groups (GreatAwakening and theawakening), nor do I really care. I can't speak for others, nor will I try to do so, but being uprooted from a "home" can be a bit dramatic on some. It'll work itself out in time.....patience! #WWG1WGA

[–] Goqgo 0 points 92 points (+92|-0) ago 

I am really confused by all of this. All I want is to do is talk about Q and stay educated. I’m having trouble trying to figure out how to navigate on voat and 8 chan. I’m sure I will figure it out with time. However, all this bickering going on has got me even more confused because I just don’t understand all the technical stuff. I’ll bet the cabal is sitting back and watching all this and patting themselves on the back right now for causing such chaos within our movement. We have to stick together and remember what’s most important. We can’t let them win!!!

[–] Cleanhobo 0 points 55 points (+55|-0) ago 

You are going to do just fine here... We haze people when they first get here and we are BRUTAL on censorship... Its the Voat Immune System. Stick with it and you will come out the other side. When you go back to Reddit you will throw up in your mouth at how awful it is after that transition.

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 26 points (+26|-0) ago 

voat has existed for years and the only reason you didn't know is because you don't care about anyone's rights besides your own, you faggots aren't real patriots

[–] madhatter67 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago 

Have an upvoat.... as you say, it'll work itself out in time

for an IrritableGimp you seem pretty laid back!

[–] 4TheRepublic 0 points 32 points (+32|-0) ago 

You know, I understand your faux nativefag disgust and contempt. but where in the almighty VOAT rules does it say that newfags can't start a new subverse? I welcome enlightenment. Who died and made you G-dfag?

[–] jasonco 0 points 56 points (+56|-0) ago 

wait, isn't making a new subverse when there is already an active one on board dividing the movement?

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 44 points (+44|-0) ago 

are you retarded? v/milliondollarextreme started their own subverse and so did v/greatawakening months ago the problem isn't starting a new subverse the problem is the way your faggot nigger kike mods ran it, they've literally admitted they were banning and censoring everyone and that they were wrong to do so. KILL YOURSELF

[–] kneo24 0 points 27 points (+27|-0) ago 

No one said you couldn't start your own subverse. They were merely stating a censorship free option exists that isn't designed to keep you hidden from the rest of the site.

[–] madhatter67 0 points 17 points (+17|-0) ago 

It's not about disgust or contempt....

It's about actually taking this shit seriously....you know...WWG1WGA....you reddit niggers didn't come up with that idea!

It's about not duplicating effort and making sure good research doesn't get missed by people with an interest

If about showing some respect for hospitality

It's about not living up to the exact stereotype we have here of self obsessed sanctimonious reddit faggots

I'd say the /r/pizzagate exodus here went well, because people intergrated....the recent the_donald one was a shitshow, because just like so far on this time, they rocked up and thought they could take over by shear force of numbers

I'm sure some of you will be better than that....but you've not all got off to the best of starts

[–] timurr 0 points 20 points (+20|-0) ago  (edited ago)

why not come point people to /v/GreatAwakening?

Is that really that difficult to understand? You can have more than one sub about the same topic, and they wanted to have their own with moderation. Now they understood that doesn't fit culturally here, so they move out to 8ch. I personally agree with this decision, voaters can discuss Q like before on /v/GreatAwakening, and those mods can realize their moderation vision on 8ch. I think this is better than trying to integrate incompatible things.

[–] jasonco 0 points 34 points (+34|-0) ago  (edited ago)

these mods STILL want to do the same thing on 8chan they tried to do here. They want to herd you into their own censored board instead of going to the actual 8chan board that Q actually posts to. Very strange...

[–] kneo24 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago 

Is that really that difficult to understand? You can have more than one sub about the same topic, and they wanted to have their own with moderation.

v/calmbeforethestorm exists. It's existed for a while actually. So has v/GreatAwakening. Same type of topics. All Q related. There's no fighting there. Even the moderation rules are a little different. So to follow up with:

Now they understood that doesn't fit culturally here,

Shows how little you understand Voat in general.

The only thing Voaters didn't care for here is the Reddit-esque censorship that was happening here. If a community flees from Reddit because of being censored, it would be smart if they weren't hypocrites about it in their new hosts.

[–] HuxleysHorror 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I agree. Basically readers like me subscribe to all of related subs and converse in the ones most welcoming. Cussing and N words just make me feel unwelcome and I might as well read only 8 Chan if this continues here. r/TheDonald seemed to have those in favor of Trump, but though Q was a larp. VOAT or REDDIT or 10 subs vs 1 sub doesn't matter to me. I am interested in good articles. I will already be voting all things RED so don't actually need everyone's opinion. My default is always Q and I can wait while the storm thrashes everything about. Same goes for ALL of social media. I have plenty to do while waiting. The poor language is junk that I weed out, not because of prissiness, just old age without time to waste. So divide, don't divide, Trump has my VOTE and FAITH. He and his protectors are the only ones truly doing the job!

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

trying to integrate incompatible things

so you understand that your faggoty reddit behavior is incompatable with voat and yet you don't understand why we hate you?

[–] Chiyelgrl 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Thank you. I know there are a few research boards that have been here for some time, even before Q's time that have been researching and known much of what Q has been trying to wake the rest of the world to. There is a lot of valuable information that has been here, so it's nice that redditers are directing here. If everyone is concerned about staying together than we should also be happy to get more together. Hoping others will follow to /v/GreatAwakening.

[–] Atko 0 points 87 points (+87|-0) ago 

I have been following this situation from a distance in the past few days and I have to say that it makes me happy to see that you guys decided to take a more hands-off approach to moderation. We implemented public moderation logs to make sure moderators are held accountable by the very users they serve, and I am sure that in time you will see the benefits of this system. With focusing solely on removing spam, there is less work for you to do in general and more time to focus on things that matter. I also hope that, now that you have experienced Voat as an open and transparent platform, you will spread the word and do your part to help keep this, and any other similar platform alive. Fighting for freedom of speech is no longer optional, street protests have moved to the web, and it is up to each and every one of us to fight and protect it any way that we can. If we stay passive, things will be decided for us by the powers at be, and history has shown time and again that such decisions are never in our best interest... And it just so happens that they just loooove making decisions for us. Go figure.

[–] strange_69 0 points 20 points (+20|-0) ago 

Great to see you. Hope that all is well with you. I wonder if these guys even know who you are.

[–] sheepsexplode 0 points 17 points (+17|-0) ago  (edited ago)

All us old goats think about you often. Can’t thank you enough for this amazing contraption you’ve created.

I hope you some day are truly recognized for what you have done. I don’t know if you know how important your creation is to us.

This is my true connection to the world. Not limited by any one or any border. I can’t even look Facecrap or Crapit now. I live here. For as long as it’s alive.

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 43 points (+43|-0) ago 

good, now I'm going to explain to your users how you were banning people for two days straight like the filthy reddit niggers you are. Anyone who actually wants to be on voat can stay but power mods and their censorship have to go back

[–] waringi 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

They claim its to fight shills but shills don't last long here because they can't hide behind censorship and mod bans. They want to spoon feed and be spoon fed by celeb namefags. Meanwhile in the real world they don't say a peep. Zoomer "secret club", babbys first conspiracy, 'fellow pedes!' faggots. They will be gassed when the day comes.

Goats are SOLDIERS who have been on the front lines for years or even decades. Voat doesn't exist because everything is going swell. I hope they get a real redpill and see the real war right in front of them.

[–] AmaleksHairyAss 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Goat here, I probably disagree with 90% of what you believe. It's not bout holding a certain political opinion you prancing faggot.

[–] Kodo0 0 points 31 points (+31|-0) ago 

Why are you not using the official Q board on 8chan then?

Because you can't moderate it?

[–] girlwonder 1 points 11 points (+12|-1) ago 

Because autists are working and many folks are new to 8chan is what I understand. It will allow those who aren't used to 8chan posting to get their feet wet and get used to it imo. Q linked us to this secondary board as well. We go where Q goes. Q is right about other platforms in the end, altho much respect to Putt.

[–] Cyrus_Q 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

When you say Q you really mean Pamphlet and his band of deceitful larpers.

[–] jasonco 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

then how come your precious patriotsawaken board isn't teaching people how to use 8chan?

[–] freedumbz 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

>Q linked us to this secondary board as well.

Do you got any proof of that?

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

you faggots are so pathetic why do you need to create safe spaces everywhere you go?

[–] ShutItDownGoyim 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

They can't dig their grubby kike fingers into it. That's why. Jews are powerhungry creeps and these mods are no different.

[–] Lurkerwastaken 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I never liked the format of 4chan, 8chan is still new to me although it is the same...

[–] Volcris 0 points 28 points (+28|-0) ago 

If you guys assimilate you are welcome, you will find the only rule you must play by here is allowing free speech and transparency, no “safe space” of any kind.

Your ban approach made it fashionable for those of us already here to try to get banned as a badge of honor.

If you guys head out, good luck out there, it’s a tough world.

[–] Cleanhobo 0 points 16 points (+16|-0) ago 

Ha ha yeah... I'm going to escape harassment on Voat... BY GOING TO THE CHANS... Bwa ha ha ha good luck with that.

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

welcome is a strong word, anyone is allowed to be here but we're not exactly tolerant

[–] Volcris 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

I would say we are very tolerant. We tolerate just about everyone, that doesn’t mean we like them.

No one who comes here will be deplatformed or attacked in a meaningful way (doxx etc.). All are free to arrive, and the community is free to judge them.

Despite the amount of us here who are taking pitchforks and torches to the gates of this sub, no one is at all calling for their deplatforming.

[–] BonesDC 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yeh just like the Mods from r/GA removed my ability to downvote. I was a lurker from Nov- Jan then joined and was in many discussions adding information where I could, then a few months ago the Mods same as the Mods at v/awakening somehow removed my ability to downvote. I am much more a fan of FREE SPEECH, refined by fire, here. Keep posting and adding to the conversation and you will be able to downvote in no time. I still cant yet but whatever I will get there.

[–] MuckeyDuck 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

You can down vote if you have 100 points, but you already knew that, you just conveniently left it out.

[–] HappyMealBullshit 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Yeah all available evidence points to this conclusion. These people were faggots on reddit and surprisingly they didn't stop being faggots just because they moved to voat.

[–] kneo24 0 points 20 points (+20|-0) ago

[–] RonaldSwansong [M] 3 points 11 points (+14|-3) ago 

The moderation team is on board. The user is a trusted source and made the post since the Mods on-line right now can't post. ThankQ

[–] kneo24 0 points 24 points (+24|-0) ago 

The user is a trusted source and made the post since the Mods on-line right now can't post.

That's a problem you guys brought upon yourselves and is easily rectifiable. So now one has to question why you need a "trusted source" to spread a message for you guys, and why you guys decided to ham-string yourselves and not fix it. Do you care to comment before you ban me and remove my comment?

[–] AmaleksHairyAss 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago

[–] kneo24 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Why are you guys removing posts when people point out that v/greatawakening exists? Why is it that your team feels that this has to be the only right and true options to discuss Q? Do you honestly feel @sryazie is running a counter-op?

[–] everlastingphelps 0 points 19 points (+19|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Here's the problem with all of this. It doesn't solve the real problem of the downvoat restriction.

Downvoats are the immune system of voat. By restricting them, you are triggering the immune system. That is why no one can get CCP -- your sub looks like a trolling sub to the system. This is why you can't get on v/all -- and if bringing in normies is the goal, how are you going to do that if your posts can never get out of this sub? That was the giant complaint about reddit -- the shadowbanning. The way this sub is set up, it has shadowbanned itself.

I honestly don't think that you can dig yourselves out of this hole. The systemic problem is still there. The board made itself a target from the start, and now, there is so much pent up frustration from the rest of voat, if you turn on downvoats now, you are likely to be downvoated into oblivion and end up on the 1/5 limit per day. (One thread, five comments. That's what happens when you hit -50. Several of your mods are already there, and the ones who aren't are at 0 because they won't post in the rest of voat.) The only way to get around that would be a hell of a PR campaign to voat at large, and I don't see that happening from the people who post things like this.

[–] IGiveZeroFucks 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

and if bringing in normies is the goal, how are you going to do that if your posts can never get out of this sub?

The mods don't actually give a shit about that. They just want to maintain an iron grip of control over their herd. Pure ego. Nothing more, nothing less.
