Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

The idea of a thread to contain that poster's uncontrolled bragging about backing Trump, which he's been spewing across multiple threads for months, was a good one if it had been enforced.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

If you think rules are being broken and we haven't addressed it then please report it and it will get looked at.

Keep it to new(ish) post though.

Technically that's not more threads given it wasn't new.

That was bothering me the nit in me as well

So to clarify - there are tons of old threads that would no longer be allowed. and for the purposes of the rules are considered as closed or not existing.

They will be reevaluated if they are resurrected.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

What happens when someone wants to make a non content thread but they forget to do the !!! thing? Surely this has happened and the forum is littered with non content threads that aren't marked as such, and are incorrectly moderated as a result.

The mods decide what is and isn't a content thread so you will be relieved to know that that isn't a a problem.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

So why do only the moderators decide what is and what isn't a content thread?

Content isn't banned from !!!threads. It just means that you can make it about posters, troll, personal attack etc etc with minimal constraints.

PC rules still apply.

Content is very subjective imo.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

If you want another !!!thread then explain what you want it for and why it will be distinct from existing !!!threads

That kinda why it's hard to see why another !!! is needed. What can't go in the existing ones?

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

chezlaw's biggest problem is all the ridiculous minutia of rules and regulations, and how arbitrary, vague, and heavy handed he is.

He needs to just lighten up and let people post FFS. Oh dear, the topic of a thread changed? OMG end of the world, call the slayer. Oh gosh, people are bickering or posting music or bull****ting about nonsense? Wrong, sad, low energy, kill it with fire.

If people don't find the environment of a forum welcoming, they're not going to make much effort to post, and the content is going to be ****ty. Cheztapo makes the forum unwelcoming.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

It should be unwelcoming to people who only want to ruin it for posters who want to debate with each other.

If you want to BS about nonsense and flame someone, pick one of the !!! threads and let rip.
