you know - i just realized that last post was inappropriate in this thread. i figger no one's read it yet, so just pretend i've edited it to something innocuous and non-inflammatry, like "yay for getting something that allows me to adjust my posts to improve the overall demeanor of the board!"

that's a bunch of legalese which says: "we're not responsible for what you post, but once you post it, we won't let you maintain ownership of it, either."

to correct zane - it's not about threads - it's about sections where people can create threads - you have a much courser gradation available to you.

i think the moderated/unmoderated distinction is acceptable. i don't think the ptb would approve of 3playa style ownership...

i think it's also critical that the moderators come from the community, rather than the tech team. there needs to be an understanding of the the flow of the community, and how the individuals behave and what their quirks are. but the moderators also need to be able to consciously divest themselves o...

this board made a big deal out of "you own your own words", but really it meant that you had no control over your words after you hit the post button. the biggest issue i see with not editing is that the context of your post can change while you are composing it. this is only exacerbated by requirin...

inclined to agree - 1 & 3 are appropriate for different situations, and 1 is suitable for most situations. moderators won't want to supervise everything, but only lend a guiding hand when it becomes necessary. this implies that the default state should allow as much user freedom as possible. i t...

i'd presume that to be documented in a "moderator actions" sticky thread.

however, i'm realizing that i've already developed a fairly explicit process in my head, that reflects (almost) no input from anyone else. time to shut up and listen, for a while, i think.`

Moderation discussion

i think moderation is a more critical part of the rollout than is the categorization. we've been through oodles of category changes, and they never really changed the pugilistic behavior much. since that was the primary concern, i think moderation needs to be brought up sooner than later.
