First of all: Let me apologise for my lack of activity. I've been going through quite a bit in my life at the minute and my access to Voat is pretty intermittent already without the various interruptions that the site itself is having.
I did not expect Voat to grow as quickly as it did and I figured I could dedicate more timer sooner. As some of you are aware, my general lack of presence is annoying at best!
However, that's going to change. I can dedicate a lot more time and I'm looking to expand the Subverse in a variety of ways.
A few days ago, Strigiformes messaged me with regards to the running of the Verse and he's pretty keen on making this work. To that effect, I'd like to welcome him to moderating team. He's currently in the process of creating a custom theme and he came up with the idea of hosting a Total War Giveaway. More on that in the near future.
A couple of days ago there was a meta-post by Yuzzem, Here, about rules for the Subverse and the policy on content cross posting from our Reddit counterpart. Personally, I don't have particular strong views. We can't really help having the same content as they do in the first place and while it would be great for us to have original content, I don't see much harm in Cross posting (At least for now!)
As for rules, it was pretty short sighted of me to not include some basic guidelines for the Subverse and I apologise. However, I think this does give us a great opportunity to discuss what we might like to see added aside from the bare-bones etiquette of keeping things on-topic and toxic-free.
Finally, with the work that Strigiformes is doing and the (hopeful!) growth of /v/TotalWar, I will be looking into adding a couple more names to the moderating team. Please drop me a line if you want to get involved. We don't need more than two or three for the moment though!
I'd like to open the floor as it were to discussion about rules, content cross posting, and your general view of the subverse and the direction it's headed.
Thank you for reading.
EDIT: Shout out to /v/turnbased who want to link us on their Subverse.
