The voat API is still operating. The site has not been taken down. Service errors are an issue with something on the server.

The voat reverse proxy is running nginx and reporting a 504 error, according to /4chan/, which is what happens when the disk is full.

LOL Putt is probably just on a golf trip.

Reminds me I need to donate again soon.

it's funny people scurry back to reddit... I wish I knew their voat accounts to ignore em.... so much hypocrisy right there

[–] Chiefpacman 6 points (+6|-0) Edited

Edit: they dont like you saying things they don’t agree with. Don’t come here goats. https://preview.voat.co Go here

———— I’m wondering where we’ll meet up. If anything happens

A lot of goats really hate phuks. I’m rarely here, but I think it would be our best meeting place if something happens

Admin is a nice guy and is sympathetic to voat and it’s users.

People say we should go to 8chan. Someone just needs to teach me how subs work on there..

Who really knows where everyone will go. Chances are that a great many were just impersonation accounts and they will eventually come here. All I know is that I recently started speaking with empress via texting so at least I can keep in contact with her.

Everyone else it was hard to see them as genuine. Lost my DIYGUNS sub which sucks. Hopefully they will allow that kind of content here.

Those who "hate' phuks never had a good reason to, so if push comes to shove they'll probably move over. They probably won't find such sympathetic ears to their bullshit, but it still beats Reddit for their "fuck the system" reasons.

I have never heard of this place before. I was recommended here by some guy on the voat preview site. I guess we are all niggerfaggots again. :( What are we called here? Phuckers?

[–] Samsquamch 1 points (+1|-0)

Hey man,

Nice to see a familiar face. Between this and 4chan / pol / 8chan, I like this place the best so far.

[–] [Deleted] 4 points (+4|-0)

That is pretty disgusting. If you didn't leave reddit b/c of principles then you never really had any at all.

[–] ninjajunkie 4 points (+4|-0)

Didn't even know about this place and managed to find you fags. Only cucks go back to reddit.

[–] Kal 0 points (+0|-0)

Like people in an abusive relationship never willing to admit that there is nothing good left there.

[–] ToTheMoonAlice 8 points (+8|-0)

That entire thread got deleted. Fucking Reddit mods.

[–] E-werd 5 points (+5|-0)

The mods of that subreddit are actually anti-voat from what I remember. It was taken over by a rogue mod a long time ago, which is why you don't see any mention of voat in the style anymore.

[–] ThinWhiteDuke 3 points (+3|-0)

Yep. Fucking fags banned everyone who posted in the thread too. Hope it felt amazing, because that right there was your Superbowl.

[–] fusir 9 points (+9|-0)

I hope I didn't have anything to do with it. 0.00001% chance.

I posted some things without a title. Gabara figured out how to do it. He posted like 100 of them. Not sure what it does to the database.

I'm wondering if the site will ever go down forever and if putt will just not tell us. Last time he said, this might be it, we crowdfunded a ton and he.. seemed really excited about it..

[–] kromulent [OP] 4 points (+4|-0)

Well I hope it was you, they can always fix the database. I confess I'm afraid it's something else.

:) It's probably not you. If we are lucky Putts will comeback with a super fun update.

[–] Samsquamch 1 points (+1|-0)

We made the Chinese and Russians angry and they sent their bot armies after us? No wait, that would be Reddit, Twitter, and Facebook. Probably just another "accidental" bombing from Israel like when they "accidentally" bombed the USS Liberty.

[–] Titus_of_Voat 7 points (+7|-0)

I can't say I'm surprised. I saw this coming ever since simple things like subverse request weren't being processed. It still sucks.

[–] RepublicOfTX 7 points (+7|-0)

If it never comes back chances are we'll never really know what happened; admins were not the type to advertise or participate openly on the internet, even on their own platform

I just tried it, and got the same thing.

[–] kromulent [OP] 7 points (+7|-0)

I've never seen a 503 before. Something's fucky.

[–] Dismal_Swamp 3 points (+3|-0)

Yea, this is the first I've seen a 503 also. Usually I get the goat to pop up and say baaaaah.... Something is fishy.

Never knew this place existed til i got the error 503 and started googling what happened to voat. Are we all still in the dark?

[–] Anubis 7 points (+7|-0)

yeah, a bunch of us are from voat. We wanted some different features, so we made our own to mess with on the side. It mostly works the same. If you have any questions, let us know. We'll have an update post if Voat pops up again.

[–] Chiefpacman 4 points (+4|-0)

Yes.

When it comes back we need answers..

[–] lucidique 1 points (+1|-0)

Not so sure it's coming back up.

Were the owners making any money out of it? Is there any interest in keeping it alive?

Voat is/was a great platform, but I don't think it was meant to be forever...

[–] TheTrigger 0 points (+0|-0)

Problem is, you can't really monetize a platform like this. Boy, did they give it the ol' college try. They could always do something like Gab, and let people pay a monthly subscription for a badge next to your username + some extra, mostly superfluous, features. Make it something cheap, like $5/m, that anyone can afford. I'd much rather donate to voat, in such a way, than donate to some corrupt charity.

[–] thantik 3 points (+3|-0)

I really hope it hasn't been shut down with all the astroturfers on there. The astroturfing wasn't of the corporate variety, but of the "let's make this place so toxic that it drives off users" variety.

Just registered here, but I'm hoping voat comes back online. I won't go back to reddit except for the EVE Online subreddit occasionally (game politics are posted there).

Kinda sucks about the whole "no discrimination" crap in the TOS. Freedom to hate people is a part of free expression.

[–] nomad_goat 1 points (+1|-0)

Tell me what does freedom mean, if I'm not free to be as twisted as I want to be?

[–] shwanky 2 points (+2|-0)

Just logged in to voat had to restart computer and by the time I got back it was 503. I believe its a large ddos attack of something similar.
