October 2, 2020: Voicerepublic.com is currently in the process being updated.
Background: In 2019 Voicerepublic was released as Open Source and handed over to its new host organization OpnTec Berlin. The goal is to make the platform available to a broader audience and ensure the development and security updates meet the needs of users. In September 2020 a number of security issues were identified in the code of the platform. Due to potentially severe security issues and the responsibilities to our users we decided to take the site temporarily offline and resolve the issues first. No user data has been released or server security breached. This is a precautionary measure. The platform will be back soon. Stay tuned for exciting updates and read below more about the goal of Voicerepublic and our Manifesto.
What is Voice Republic

The Voice Republic Manifesto
1. Democracy lives on discussion and free speech
At Voice Republic, you can share and form your opinions.
2. Voice Republic lets speaker and listener meet at eye level
Every listener can be a speaker, and vice versa.
3. For more analog within the digital
Voice Republic lets discussions grow just like they do in the real world. You can express yourself in as much detail as you like, giving space to the subjects that interest you.
4. Voice Republic is founded on respect
Respect for other opinions, other genders, sexualities, religions and backgrounds. You know what we mean: We want to discuss and disagree respectfully, even when our strong opinions differ.
5. For a decentralization of the Internet
For security reasons, the Voice Republic servers that save personal data are all located in Germany and Switzerland, no exceptions. And it will stay that way.
6. We don’t do business with your data
Voice Republic has a business model. Your data is not part of it.
7. Voice Republic can forget
When you delete your account, your data is deleted with it. Voice Republic does not want a total archive.
