Also,

if you combine threads, combine the thread with lesser replies to the one with more.

I think it's usually done looking at the time it was posted.

I have never merged a thread lol. It's one of my irrational fears.

Undelete flat earth threads. You've lost sharp critical thinkers for that prejudice. I never left, just sulked. I tolerate jackleg posters. When mods troll, I lose my cool.

It is too late for all that.

I came here 9 years ago, where are all the posters gone?

Why did they go?

That is the question you should be asking.

I remember some real geniuses. Those people were draw cards.

The atmosphere was the real attraction though. It was like your local bar where everyone knew you. Everyone was more friendly than not. Most us just hung out in our corner with our friends.

What happened that changed all that?

I don't get it.

The posters here now are not draw cards. There is little they post that you can't see on any other site. I don't see, aside from offering weekly prizes or beanies for threads, how you can get that quality of poster back.

You'll get no argument with me there. I used to post here all of the time, but it got to the point...I just lurk here now. I doubt the board will ever return to the sense of community we had with so many eager to post on topics that affect us as a nation. A couple of members here ran everybody off, and few remain of the original cast.

Just start a dedicated FE thread.

I am not going back to the fighting on several FE threads day in, day out.

Well, i would say that the balance between american and other nationalities is way off in the mod team.

I don't like this over the top word filter and "no potty mouth" puritan bullshit. Maybe they were raised at the altar, but i wasn't.
In europe we have a tendency to say it like it is, and use colorful language to do it. That should be allowed.
The word filter is over the top.

It's quite obvious when things start to turn from some recreational cussing to insults, so i don't think the current approach makes sense at all.

Native English speakers whether British, American, Canadian, Aussie etc. like to curse like sailors. It is part of our Anglo culture to use a lot of incorrect grammar, bizarre spellings, slang and colourful language that might shock people whose first language isn't English and who learned textbook English. I notice interesting threads getting deleted only because they use words in the title post that hit the naughty list such as words like ass. You don't even know what words you are not allowed to use in a title post which makes it frustrating and not very fun posting if you don't know the rules because they are not made clear. We need a naughty list of words we are not allowed to use if you are going to delete threads based on one bad word being in the title.

I've said it before, and I will say it again:

MUCH. LESS. CENSORSHIP.


For instance, outside of threats of actual physical harm, "personal abuse" covers a huge spectrum and should not be grounds for censorship. It is often enforced at the whim of the mods. Let people sort things out by themselves.


Once again, just my .02

That's all fun and games until (in about 5 seconds) mods start getting dozens of reports per minute because "people are sorting things out by themselves".

If you ever modded or admin'd a rather large forum, you know this is how it goes.
You give people more freedom to express and judge by themselves and all they will do at the end is complain that the mods do nothing.
If mods do anything, the exact same people will complain that they do nothing.

Your .02 are nice in theory but reveal a lack of understanding of the basic human behavior in places like this.
And your experience is based on...


Come on. Why not our yourself.

You have pretty much admitted you are or were a mod, though you are an a/c.

RE: How Can We Improve Our Moderating?
The only change should be deleted threads.

Also mods need to relax a little.

Don't delete threads. Just lock them with reason and who locked it, sO if the op has questions they can address them with the mod in question. Then delete the thread after 24 hours or something.

Oh and mods can't get rid of critical posts to their own threads.

RE: How Can We Improve Our Moderating?
Mods should never determine the validity of a subject because the truth is so hard to find these days that no one is the expert on it. People should always decide for themselves whether something is true or not. When you have mods doing that, it turns into outright censorship quite often. They are then participating in promoting propaganda.

Most people believe that the truth is what they want to believe without even realizing it. This includes mods.

I also wish there was a way to reduce youtube spamming. Does anyone watch all 500 hours of videos posted without any introduction that gets posted in so many threads?

The entire cancer industry exists to protect the corporations that are manufacturing products that cause cancer.

Yes, that type of posting is a real downer, indecent and vulgar. Many who might want to post here will be turned away from that kind of language. It's degrading, not only as a reply, but to the forum as a whole, so shouldn't be permitted. That's not from the lunatic fringe, but the looney bin rubber room.
