Alright, /voat/ is functional. It remains an option for the goat herd whenever Voat is DDOSed or otherwise too heavily loaded to use.
Rules of the board in the same spirit of Voat itself. Anyone can have their say. Global 8chan rule is obviously in effect, and this is the same as with Voat itself – no content that is deemed illegal in the US, since 8chan, like Voat, is based in the US.
This largely means no CP. Nudity is not necessary for content to be CP, see Dost Rule – it is discussed in 8chan's FAQ section.
Moderation will take the path of 8chan and err on the side of caution. If content is even ambiguously / possibly/ conceivably CP it will be deleted.
Otherwise, discuss whatever topics you will in whatever manners you will.
Edit: Amending the above discretionary rule against illegal content to include all pornographic material, drawn or real, and all sexually explicit material. I am doing this in the interest of extreme caution – there are already signs of people posting fringe content in the interest of getting this board taken down AGAIN. It will make it easier for me to remove content if I don't have to spend seconds or minutes trying to decide whether the content could be considered underage or not. This is just meant to be a back-up refuge anyway – people can post their porn elsewhere if they really must.
I will stick to simply removing the files unless a single IP posts nothing but random NSFW files for no reason other than to be fringe illegal or otherwise explicit, in which case I will ban. I fear for this board's survival and I refuse to take any chances.
