Seems to me like the right intentions were there if Typo's statement is true (avoid confusion, don't appear impatient).

Thing is the execution was horrible and backfired immediately because we are not stupid. Instead of waiting for an admin to revert the accidental deletion of the original account they chose to secretly create an alt and mod it by basically cheating the system with a new sub made only for that.

Again, voat useres are not fucking stupid. Just make a sticky post on /v/news and tell your users you messed up instead of trying to hide mistakes. Everyone would have understood and you'd have a mod less until the issue was resolved but nooooo. Let's do it Reddit style, what could go wrong?
