New: moderators per topic

By anonymous following x   2017 Nov 5, 7:59pm 26,659 views   767 comments   watch   quote     share    


At the suggestion of the late Turtledove I'm trying to separate the site into distinct topics with a moderator for each topic.
#patnet

The first moderator is Iwog, who is in charge of Investing.

Currently, the only power a moderator has is ability to delete comments in that topic. But soon (like within the next week) I hope to implement these other abilities:

ability to delete whole posts in the topic
set or edit "About ${topic}" page
acceptance or rejection of posts waiting for moderation in topic
acceptance or rejection of comments waiting for moderation in topic
ability to free jailed comments in topic
user blacklist by ip or username for that topic
user whitelist for that topic (only those users would be allowed to comment)
ability to set a background image for the topic, and color scheme
ability to set up own donation link for the work

Anyone care to moderate a specific topic? @Dan8267 would you like #scitech or #science?

#patnet

It's also scientifically true that diversity of community destroys the sense of community, and all forms of civic engagement. Look it up. I've learned many more things with age and could go on, but need to go to work now.


Leftist have tried to push the message out there that "diversity builds better communities", this is wrong. The truth is UNITY builds better communities. Islam and Western culture are extremely incompatible and that's why Europe is experiencing such social turmoil at the moment.

He choose to ignore the content and instead attack the person instead

You are so right. You post a message implying that LBJ was a racist asshole who divided the country for personal gain and I said
Onvacation says

The poster child for democrats that pretend to help the poor.

I may have been attacking some democrats, but basically I was just agreeing with your implied message that LBJ was a racist who did not really care about the poor.

Did you intend to imply something else?

Why do you come here to attack posters and harass them? What do you gain from disrupting other people’s conversations?


Really??

Have you read any of your posts here in the last few days? Were any of those "attacks" on other posters?

Go take a scroll here:

Answer my questions and then I’ll respond in Kind. I don’t think you know how to be civil, but i know for certain that your incessant incivility, personal attacks, and harassment is exactly what lead to the less than civil tone of this forum

Have you READ anything that you've posted the last few days? Seriously? Have you reviewed ALL the personal attacks and uncivil posts that you've made? You should be the last poster to start accusing others.

You've gone totally unhinged, just like iwog did!


So you’re going to consider to be uncivil, and refuse to answer my question?

To avoid answering questions while asking them of others seems absolutely uncivil on a discussion forum, but I’ll defer to you, the king of incivility

Yes, there is a reason that the national motto is E Pluribus Unum. Out of many, one. It's about unity, and minimizing our differences, not constantly emphasizing them.
