you're right this is unacceptable, I should be able to post bananas in /v/games because otherwise it's censorship and whatnot. and if anyone says otherwise I'll call you all names and complain.

If you post a banana in /v/games then the moderator can remove it as off-topic

Or you can not post a picture of a banana in /v/games.

I just really don't want a slurry of comments on every other post about if it's really on topic.

Then don't post off-topic. Find the appropriate subverse for your content.

[I] have a distinctly difficult time caring about whether something is on-topic.

So you're the problem here.

But if it's mostly redheads, then it gets old to see in the comments of every strawberry blonde "She isn't a redhead" or "Not a natural redhead - should be in /v/fakeredheads" or "More auburn than redhead"

Voat is about free speech, If you think that strawberry-blondes should be admitted into /v/redheads send a message to the mods. If they disagree then take it up with the /v/redheads community. If they turn you down then don't post pictures of strawberry-blondes to that subverse. If you want you can create a subverse called /v/allRedheads.

"Have a distinctly difficult time caring about whether something is on-topic" - then search out communities that share this philosophy or start your own

It's the people that make the community, not the website. If bad redditors flock here, Voat will become a carbon copy.

Your analogy doesn't work because

Games are not to Bananas

as

News is to Politics

In the first set, you have very clear lines. If there is a game or there is a banana, then it fits into one or both sets.

In the second set, you have much more of a grey area which could be misued to censor both verses and deny free speech.

We are talking about news versus politics. A news mod could say that this article is about the issue of feminism and is not particular news, while a v/politics mod could say this is from a newsmagazine, and it doesn't belong there. Not likely to get away with that if games or bananas are involved.


Just to be sure, I think I'll go create a new sub /v/bananagames :D

We could make a special, catch-all, default sub with no moderators, rules or regulations. How about that?

The old reddit frontpage was one of the best things the site ever had.

You should make a Voat version. Minimal moderation. All posts welcome.
Here are some name ideas:
"The Voating Booth"
Just /v/Voat if that doesn't already exist.

"*"  Yes, just * . v/* Like the old DOS days where * was a wild card character, could mean anything.

I assume same as anywhere else.

First line of defence: user downvotes

Second line of defence: user reports + admin intervention

Yeah! Let's call it "Wild Wild West." No rules or regulations, just people armed with voats and wild opinions.

Well, I think there's already a subverse dedicated to doxxing people.

It's done: we now have /v/whatever. No moderators. Go nuts.

There are several problems with this mindset. First, many people on voat cannot downvoat, because they do not have the 100 ccp.

Second, because of the limited number of posts/users, downvoated posts will still show up on a subverses' front page.

Third, say that I am subed to 2 subverses, one about bananas and one about apples. If someone posts an apple in the banana subverse, I may see it on my front page and upvoat it because I think it is the apple subverse, even though it is in the wrong subverse. If enough people do this, the banana subverse may become entirely about apples, leaving no place to discuss bananas.

Finally, "Kontent Kops"? Seriously?

How do you tag? Is there a RES for Voat?

Now we have people complaining about people complaining about content (or 'kontent' apparently).

And no, people questioning if things belong in certain subs is perfectly fine. What is the point of even having individual subs if everyone should be able to post anything anywhere?

If I do get listed as a Kontent Kop, I better be a Kool Konten-... fuck, no, nevermind nevermind... forget I said anything.

For what it's worth, I agree.
