My front page is nothing but /v/news (12 submissions), /v/whatever (9), /v/politics (3), and /v/OccidentalEnclave (1). The second page only adds two more subverses. The third, only one.
I subscribe to 50 subverses, several of which had 5+ daily submissions until recently, and many of which had a few posts a week. I used to see my subscribed subverses on my front page all the time.
It seems like an algorithm change only shows the most popular subverses on the front page. So I only see all-US- politics all the time. My actual favorites never show up unless I laboriously visit them one at a time.
I think everybody else is the same. If their favorites are not shown on their front page, they forget about them. I have seen many recent comments that Voat is overloaded with politics lately. I don't think it is. I think people are not being shown their pet subverses, and out of sight is out of mind.
@Atko and @PuttItOut, can anything be done to help?
I would prefer the opposite: show every submission in the less-popular subverses, but only the most upvoated in popular ones.
If this isn't fixed soon, Voat really will die. Many of the less popular subverses have turned into ghost towns.
