[Serious] Make Atheist Forums Great Again (Part 2)

I also dig that if people want to make a joke, they can... they just gotta contribute to the conversation to justify it. I also think that (ideally) the prohibition on jokes should be loosely enforced, while insults and the like enforced more strictly.

Also, would it be possible to implement a 30/30 rule on posting [serious] threads? I'd hate to grant passing trolls like CDF immunity from ridicule. I understand if that can't be implemented, but it's a concern that springs to mind.

I like this idea a lot, actually.

Wiser words were never spoken.

OP idea is a terrible idea, but whatevs, it'll  play out for what it is and af will persist through it.

Not remotely terrible, but there was always going to be folks who loved it and folks who hated it. I’ve learned that we really can’t do anything right. We’re just left to do what we think is best.

I understand, lol. Wink

Like another poster mentioned..wont mean shit to me. I can crack a dick joke on topic. Any topic.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Could we do a NSFW option as well to that way people posting pictures of scantily clad people won’t get me fired . I think both this option and the serious one will allow more lieniency in non marked threads allowing mods to worry about derailing and banter less. Overall good improvement and less work for mods. For the nsfw will also save people quoting or responding from having to hide each post.

You suggested hide tags. It’s already on our list. I believe we’ve already voted on it.

El.. oh.. him ..?

That’s a lot of work for posters and quote res of said posts. This just seems like a more eloquent solution

For the record, the absence of an announcement about anything doesn’t mean we haven’t voted or voted something off the list right now. We’re just announcing a little at a time. Also, anything that wasn’t voted yes on is either unable to be implemented or unnecessarily labor intensive for little reward.

Not really. People post nsfw stuff in threads about anything for laughs or whatever. They shouldn’t have to limit it to specific threads and should be able to toss a couple of hide tags in a quote in a matter of seconds. Modding nsfw images and removing them from any thread not labeled that way on the other hand would require a ton of work on our end.
