I'm not the first to notice this but the admins of the site have gone completely silent and It's beginning to breed rumors of trouble behind the scenes at Votable Inc. I don't want to push rumors too hard, Votable is a small company and has limited resources (and the site appears to be functional.) That being said I wan't to assure our members there is a contingency plan being put together to migrate our community to a more solid social media platform which I myself will be running (yes I'm considering starting my own social network.)

My biggest reason for coming here was the lack of a plan reddit.com/r/the_donald for if the community was deleted. "We will just go to Twitter" IS NOT A PLAN. If things go down hill trust that we will not be worse off but we will become more free and more stable.

"become more free and more stable" - Out of curiosity, what does "more free" mean in this statement?

mwill 3 hours ago

gab.ai is wGab.ai where nothing is banned or censored. You can speak freely there and there is more good up to date info on many subjects not just politics. Musicians,writers, web developers,and lot's of very talented people from all walks of life eager to engage in honest and open discussion on any subject

Gab.ai is more than a bastion of FreeSpeech. It is a haven for sanity, a place to breathe freely. A place to ask questions and to question answers - unafraid. A place of friendships and the birth place of GabLove. It is a new home for the spirit of Liberty - for the GabFam.

The observer has to be able to distinguish fact from opinion.here you want to be

gab.ai is more a short messaging/Twitter replacement system. Soon they will have a video upload service. For news aggregation (like Reddit) Voteable has potential if bugs are ironed out.

Minds.com? It's free, open source and great GUI all ready to go. Plus you could alter the code as you see fit. Looks good for News aggregation ala Reddit.

The one I've been considering is a bit more established (existed for over a decade.) While not open source, We do get code injection access which can give us a lot of flexibility (I'm a decent web developer.)

What prog lang is this software based on? You could also kludge together wordpress bits and pieces to get a decent site (I've done that before)

Likely Ruby on rails or Java.

Everyone knows the rules, if you keep posting the same thing over and over or post nonsense that isn't related to politics you will receive a notice for you to remove your own post. Refusal to do so will result in a temporary ban lifted only upon an apology and a promise you'll end the rule breaking. Second offense is a 1 week minimum ban that can be lifted after apologies and a promise to stop. Anything after that is a full ban.

Don't spam, you're all smart enough to know the difference, no one is spamming by mistake.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Can we have an example of "nonsense that isn't related to politics" please? Thanks.

Rebel1ne [lead] * 3 days ago

The original examples exist on the front page. Only redundant posts and off topic posts were removed. In this case the off topic post was a gloating post that made no reference to anything specific. Just a vague claim of superiority. Essentially a " I'm the fuckin best!" Post got removed.

But in short the original post is on the front page if you want to read examples.

This also does not apply to comments as long as you don't go overboard (post the same exact comment multiple times in same thread) so if you reference the same material alot you'll be left alone.

As of T ~10h, there was a bug (?) which pre-duped edited posts. FYI

A new post same thread dupes includes prior.

I just hope people understand that If nothing is done this issue will only grow in proportion with the community. a couple of individuals with enough side accounts and proper coordination can control the front page. It's not that bad yet, But imagine what happens in a year when we hit 10-15k users, spammers will have full control by then.

The events on September 11, 2001, changed the world. It was the excuse for the US government to launch military attacks on seven Middle Eastern countries, causing civilian casualties in the millions and sending waves of Muslim refugees into the Western world. The US government wasted trillions of dollars destroying countries and murdering women and children, while public infrastructure in the US deteriorated, Americans’ homes were foreclosed, and American health needs went unattended. 9/11 was also the excuse for the destruction of the protection that the US Constitution provided to ensure the liberty of the American citizen. Today no American has the protection of the civil liberty that the Constitution guarantees. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/04/20/freedom-democracy-tyranny/

Inspired by the 2016 race for the presidency of the United States of America, however international affairs are welcome as well.
