We would like to make /u/stoic a mod here.


First off, is it just me or are the same users being modded in all the big subverses? Secondly, hes been tainted by the /v/askvoat drama and will attract even more drama here because Im sure hes got enemies/not fans from what happened in /v/askvoat.

Give someone new a chance, dont keep modding the same 15-20 people in all the big subverses. Dont mod someone with a history of drama. Nothing against the guy but damn does this site need some new faces.

Remember that whole thing with reddit? Yeah that's why like 80% of the people are on this site. Why leave reddit if you don't have a problem with the same 20 mods and filters on discussion.

No. He got butt-hurt and said he's quitting voat (and going back to reddit) over people shitting on him for running an upvoat-brigading sub. Why mod someone who would ditch voat entirely over something like that?

Maybe I don't see what the big deal is but I think political videos are fine. No one is forcing anyone to open and watch them anyway so why give a shit? It's as simple as hiding the link or scrolling past it. I'm open to hearing opposing views since clearly I don't see what the fuss is.

Ya, it looks like that's the direction we will be going. I just didn't want to rush as we had not heard from as many users as I would have liked.

This is something stoic wrote on Reddit recently.

Right now I would seriously consider putting a literal ban on stupidity which would remove coontown, niggers and a whole lot more. While this would drive away 90% of the current users, Voat is currently suffering a brain drain at the expense of racism and bigotry that in the end would make Voat unsustainable in multiple ways anyway. If Voat gets promoted as being a platform for intelligent and open discussion, then a lot of Redditors will flock to it for reasons similar to mine. Even though it wasn't promoted as such when I got there, it was the potential of Voat to become that that made me become active there. I would also write a constitution that would allow apolitical upvote brigading subs (/v/disagreebutton) to exist and limit the power of moderators in the rules they can set for a subverse. The racist thing has been very recent though and I'd wait a little to see how the community deals with it and if they can deal with it before removing those subs.

Indeed, this guy is not the friendly "light touch" person that the mods of this place think he is. If they mod him, I predict they're going to have to clean up his mess sooner or later when he creates it.

No to /u/stoic , he seems toxic. I'm in Voat. I don't care what happens with Reddit beyond morbid curiosity of where its headed. But he seems to think its some kind of war. We just need a mod for the verse. Not some crusader against other sites.

Why not put political videos in here? I click on this verse because I'm looking for endless videos to waste my time watching. I skip what doesnt interest me.

Please don't make @stoic a mod.
