Yeah, maybe relax the promotion on /v/Soapboxbanhammer (why in the world was that chosen, of all places, to be promoted with a global sticky?!) and try to promote some of the smaller things that actually deliver, you know, content?

Edit: here's how to discover new subs and potentially make someone's day:

  1. Browse 'random'
  2. Sort the random subverse you land in by 'new'
  3. Upvoat newest submissions
  4. Make a few comments here and there if something interests you
  5. Subscribe if you're interested in the sub

This will not only make the creator's day (especially on mini-verses), it'll provide for an interesting hour or two on Voat.

If you want to expand Voat's offering, you need to provide content. The global sticky is the most prominent ad space on Voat. Why provide a link to something that adds zero value to newcomers?

I get that you have fun in there being all silly-silly ... :-) ... but aside from the fact that's the only place to get in touch with half the admin team, SBBH adds nothing of value to Voat.

You, on the other hand, you sexy man ... ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ

Agreed. Please feel free to send me a pm if you find an active sub that needs more exposure.

Wasn't that already featured?

I'd nominate /v/ModernPowers because we need more players, but y'know, I'm slightly biased because I moderate there.

/v/mealtimevideos is pretty cool. Also /v/VoatFilmFest, I'd like to see that become popular.

EDIT: Yay! VoatFilmFest got featured!

I like the idea of seeing the top posts from every subserve, that way I can see the best of every subverse without having to dig through all of the more populated subverse content.

I don't think we can blame Atko for niche subs not being popular. Honestly that is purely our fault. We are all subscribed to smaller subs but for whatever reason majority of people are not posting/commenting/voating. I honestly think that we as users must visit smaller subs more often and actually engage by actively participating. I personally have small sub and I noticed that at times I have more users than subscribers visiting, but no one is engaging at all. If nothing upvoat content just for visibility simply because others will be able to see post/sub on /v/All. For example /v/Documentaries has over 12000 subscribers but on average there is maybe about 10, same goes for /v/History, /v/DIY, etc ...

So with that said start visiting smaller subs in my subverses tab and do fucking something, anything!

Shamelessly pluging my own Subverse, /v/verseoftheweek promotes smaller subverses, I mainly find my choices with random, but I openly welcome nominations for niche/small subs so that they can get more exposure.
