New: moderators per topic

By Patrick following x   2017 Nov 5, 7:59pm 17,458 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

Jeeze Iwog, we got on here almost the same time. Bailing after a long run, would be better to just understand that the thread you made was wrong and flew in the face of the whole moderator attempt.


I don't think that's why he left. I think he left because Goran was put in charge of the politics threads which is something I still don't understand. Then Patrick invites Bill to do investing moderating without realizing that bill hates Gor even more than iwog does.

This is all really crazy and I think the guy who said this is about politics is on to something. IMO the most popular guy at patrick.net was treated like s***.

Politics on Patnet is worse than politics in Washington DC.
They should make a Netflix serial out of Patnet.


Funny thing is, back when PatNet was just a housing website, Iwog was actually not that bad.

After Trump won the election, it's like Iwog lost his mind. Sad.

Exactly. Iwog wanted to control Politics too, as well as RealEstate, Economics, Sexwithfarmanimals, and every other heading. Unless the site was renamed - Iwog's Personal Forum, where he had TOTAL CONTROL, he never would be happy.

Why do you thing he started a political thread under his Investment moderation control?

So you just ignored the entire conversation all day about it being unacceptable for goran to moderate. An opinion expressed by several different long time members and now you think he left because you wouldn't let him run his own thread? What's going on here. I'm not kidding this is craziness.

Why did he leave? Who knows.

One more troll for the road eh? Sorry to disappoint you buddy but I think theres gonna be a few more gone by the end of the day.


Will your "wife" and "son" also be leaving Iwog?

He was perfectly transparent about that, but you just can’t help yourself, can you? I’ve been reading this forum for over 10 years, but I gave up on it a while ago and have just been checking In from time to time to see if things had improved. They haven’t. And for Patrick to make you a moderator clearly demonstrates that. This site is done. And the fact that two of the most prolific and interesting posters have left (and that coming from someone who disagreed with plenty that they said) clearly demonstrates that.
You’ve let in slide into an echo chamber of stupidity Patrick. Well done.

My take. A lot of the usual you see on most threads here. LOTS of everyone trying to piss on each other. iwogs out, done it appears with the forum. I also take from some of the comments that Dan and iwog may communicate on the outside and Dan called it quits a while back or iwog guessed at that.

We also had some other idiots feeding the frenzy the other way. Literally people arguing over nothing. No one was going to win, yet that was the outcome everyone wanted, a win. You CAN'T win in an online argument. It's impossible. Unfortunately idiots and smart people alike cannot figure this out. Sad.

Just the usual overall though. A bunch of grown men (maybe women) acting like complete and utter fags. Hopefully most the men will reattach their dicks at some point. FYI - this is directed a pretty much all the comments on this thread outside maybe a few.

This might be the biggest meltdown I've ever witnessed on a forum. I'm really surprised at how fast Iwog went off the deep end. TDS really does exist.

Don’t be ridiculous. This has been in the making a very long time for him and plenty of others, many of whom gave up long ago. But hey, well done. You’ve got a nice safe space where you can shout your inanities at one another without contradiction. You’ll be bored as shit in no time.

Yes, of course. This is a great day for troll victory. Watch what happens next. They'll either burn themselves out making strawman statements for Liberals to own or this will become an alt right showcase of MAGA victories real and imagined.

LOL - Joey Democrat is def not leaving until the DNC says so. Superb.

Here's my take - Iwog has in the past communicated that he is OK with pedo shit (the US is currently cracking down on that under Trump - thank God), he was investing in Clinton-related stocks like ARLP (which probably would have exploded if Hillary won because the Clintons are a blinding beacon of corruption), he is entrenched in the Bay Area housing snobbery, and he was helping produce crappy anti-woman movies in Pedo-wood.

Trump winning the election totally unhinged this guy. He was the #1 most annoying and HATED member of this board.

Bye fag.

Iwok was very active in the political discussions. Patrick put one of the most hated and fucked up individuals in control of all his threads and all other political threads.

It boils down to this. Patrick gave control of the most popular member of patrick.net to a total shitstain and bad things happened.

Sorry to burst your delusion, iwog continued to post under anon after his "dramatic" leave. He'll still lurk here to see what his 35 "followers" will say.

Seriously, that guy shows LESS emotional control than a 8 year old pre hormonal little girl.

And this is what we’re left with. CiC posting his usual trollish nonsense. What are you going to do with yourself now that your two main targets can’t be bothered with it anymore? Change your persona and start attacking the remaining MAGA contingent?

Bye Jazz. I have a feeling this board may finally get back to regular folks exchanging their input/ideas.

Your drug and alcohol induced lefty lunacy is a total disgrace.

I could be wrong, but how you doing Dan? Throw a Wookie a bone if I'm right. If not, no biggie.

I personally have not had a problem with anyone here. If you come here and don't like an opinion, that's fine. The idiotic arguments back and forth are epic. Some of you can be 100% right yet you let a troll manipulate you and drag you into a dumpster fire. That makes me question your intelligence, even when you're right. Again, you CAN'T win an internet argument on a forum like this. Facts don't matter. It's only opinions. And I'm not kidding. You can find a MENSA forum somewhere and these same things will happen. The internet isn't real in a sense and some of you need to realize that.

A lot of these threads I'll read on the homepage, I'll glance at more so. And you know what I see? A hamster. A hamster just spinning on a wheel thinking they'll get somewhere. So I won't even click into them. I bet if you ban political threads here, this becomes a much more functional forum. Just my 2 cents.

Patrick, how should we address people just tagging their threads #someRandomTag to escape moderation and post whatever they want unfiltered by filth? For instance I notice threads that should be #housing but they are tagged #misc.

I think we should give mods the ability to re-categorize threads by their actual category. I actually do want to help you keep this board SFW. Help clean the place up.


@Goran_K I was thinking that there should not be random topics, but only a small number, on the order of 10, and that each post would have to go into the correct topic.

I am grateful for any help I can get.

@patrick
Why not sell patnet to Iwog? He can make it the safe space he desires to rule over with an iron fist and you can have some cash to start a new free speech site.


Better yet, sell him a license (or - in line with current trends - subscription) to the forum's software. Set up iwog.net for him (charge installation fees, of course). And sell him support service because I'm pretty sure iwog won't be capable to support it by himself.

No, I'd say just the opposite. The dominant talkers in the country as a whole, those with money and power, and who control the mainstream press, are almost entirely Democrats who have lost their way and become obsessed with identity politics while the working class suffers the lack of any real representation on either side.
