Lot of talk about using volunteer goat skills porting to Linux in this thread - I'd subscribe to a hardcore coders/IT specialists sub dedicated to solving this. My hunch would be that a port could be done cheaply and quickly just with volunteer goat skills and a bit of smart project management.

@Puttitout said that a port would require a feature freeze and 3-4 months of work, IIRC. I'm pretty sure that open sourcing it and letting the community handle it would have a working prototype in surprisingly little time. Survival issues tend to motivate projects like this.

A feature freeze isn't a big deal. And I bet it could be done in half the time

Y would they have to take Voat down while it's being ported to Linux?

I really think crowd sourcing labor is the best thing Voat can do to keep moving forward. Voat's open source, and if the site puts forth a goal to move to cheaper, free platforms, that goal will get done.

I just donated 50$, but I don't know what else to do. Is there anyway I could auction off my art/poems to raise funds?

You could probably set up a patreon and never ever tell anyone that the money is going to voat. Voat itself apparently violates the TOS of Patreon. However an elaborate money laundering operation could be just the ticket!

Honestly, funnelling that money to a bitcoin mixer and donating it to Voat doesn't sound that risky. Only catch is you probably can't pay Azure with bitcoins.

www.wesearchr.com is friendly to us. They are taking donations for Daily Stormer so my guess is voat would be aok.

I like this idea. Just say it's about helping you doing your art. Goats will know.

That sounds sketchy. Why not just direct people to the Voat donate page?

Sell your farts in jars to other voaters. They'll love it.

Branching from this idea: aside from you there are a few individuals here with some artistic talents. I'm sure there are some here with graphic design skills too. What if we banded together to create an actual product that's a reflection of voat's philosophy? I'm thinking of stuff like wallet-size constitutions, smart-ass greeting cards (I could fuel a business with liberal sympathy cards alone), I'm sure there are other ideas out there. Multiple revenue streams are what's needed here, and something like this, especially if we could get it to go viral, could periodically provide some cash infusions. It would just be one way to augment voat income. We could even "donate" custom poems to people as they're purchased like reddit gold.

Short term: Donate! And throttle back on traffic. Better a crawling slow Voat than a dead Voat.

Buying time means greater chance of finding sponsors, migration and survival.

Here here. I'd wait 5 minutes for a Voat, over waiting 5 seconds for a Reddit. You're my boy, Blue!!!

There is/was a feature on Fark called "Total Fark" where you got access to additional features and a totalfark.com email address for a small monthly fee. I'd definitely sign up for Total Voat, or Ultra Voat, or Super Faggot Voat... whatever it's called.

I was once a total farker. I'm not sure why I ever left. I guess because of reddit.

I am thinking about another way, lets try to shut down Voat communication of a few hours per day. It reduces bandwidth and interestingly also the trolls and spam. Old goats have no issue of outages that lasts of hours and days. It is part you must be willing to pay for free speech.

Most of us are located in the US. We could even just halt it from x time to x time during the evening or whenever the sanegroupiswear is sleeping...

Seriously, this is the only thing that matters right now on here. Losing this outlet for free speech would be a huge loss to liberty and freedom and I'm not even being hyperbolic. Almost everywhere else is becoming an Orwellian crap hole.

Yeah, they're too much of a mess for my liking but they are useful nonetheless.

https://gab.ai/ is a decent, alternative, free speech outlet.

https://joindiaspora.com/ is pretty good too.

https://www.gnu.io/social/ as well
