Yes many of us are aware of this and appreciate them and the site more because of it. There are alternative sites for those that are unhappy here, as for me, I am quite pleased with Voat, the admins and the community.

I literally can't fathom how they manage to do both. It's insane to me.

I don't expect speed of light, and am an advocate of contributing to something actively used, but going on 2 months for a badge after tossing $50 bucks at the site just makes me doubt that contribution to begin with.

Just curious did you donate to the site for a badge or to be able to contribute? Seriously it's like people who donate to charities just to brag to friends and get a tax deduction.

I've never even filed taxes itemized. I kick some money to places that I use or like (I even re-sub to age of conan for a month and spend an extra 20-50 in microtransactions then discon the subscription to help them stay afloat.).

I prefer to limit support though based on professionalism. This site markets itself as a free speech hub, I will be critical of things that appear anti-free speech. Likewise, if something is offered, I expect the offering to be completed.

The donation page said a badge was included, if something says it includes a free pen, fuck it-give me my pen. Doesn't matter if I need the pen, or particularly care about badges. I am wary of financially supporting anyone who is unwilling or unable to follow through on things-note: I am NOT saying voat is guilty of this. Small teams mean a lot of things on the back burner.

Yeah HOW DARE he expect what was promised to him. What an asshole. Giving away his money in exchange for a token of pride. What a dick.

This is the second time you lashed out at someone for mentioning a donation on this thread. I get where you're coming from, gloating is annoying.

However; a lot of us give money just to be able to argue about the direction the site is going in. You would sound pretty dumb making an argument on the topic, without having made a donation.

There's a few things the admins have done, that I disagree with. It's nice to be able to voice that, without my loyalty to the supreme leaders being questioned.

Go ahead and send an email to hello@voat.co explaining the situation and with an image of a payment receipt of some kind if you have it, it should get sorted within 3 or 4 days.

They want free instant gratification because that's what Google programmed them for but they sell all your information. I'm not okay with that shit.

I actually had to cancel my re-occurring monthly donation because of finical reasons. @puttitout was the coolest motherfucker I have ever spoken to! These admins are legit, they don't fuck around and they really care about their members.

Everything you've said is true.

But I also remember this:

These men have made for themselves a place in history. Moreover, they have created and maintain a place which will have a nontrival role in one of the most pivotal eras of human history.

These men are fully involved. Given the chance to go All In at the Big Kids Table of Life. That is a responsibility so very few have, and even fewer deserve.

They bear a responsibility to themselves and to us, to stand strong and live out their part in history. They are facing the true test of a person; their ability to bear up under existential level stress. And in so doing, earn a place in human history and consciousness. And so above all they must remember that now is their time. This is how they will be remembered; and to act accordingly.
