This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Can anyone make the distinction between shitposting and spam?

Because to me, they're the same thing.

Shitposting: "I have established the nation of Fagistan" - Posted by IcyWind

Spam: "I have established the nation of Fagistan" - Posted by IcyWind
"I have established the nation of Homosexuality" - Posted by IcyWind
"I have established the nation of No Girls" - Posted by IcyWind
"I have established the nation of Penises" - Posted by IcyWind
"I have established the nation of Butts" - Posted by IcyWind

The repetitive nature of the threads, all posted by the same user with little distinction, is what an example of spam would be - at least to me.
Are rapid parody threads by different users not spam then?

They are. Extremely similar threads/posts by different users that disrupt the forum can also count as spam.

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.

Hybrid, and I agree with heavy emphasis on the 2 rules listed below. Personal Attacks and Graphic Content. People shouldn't have to worry about their personal beliefs or lives being attacked. And they shouldn't have to deal with harassment either.

Quote
Respect fellow members, or at least tolerate them publicly. Harassment and personal attacks are not tolerated in any manner on Sep7agon.net, and will be dealt with appropriately. This does not only include attacks regarding one's religious beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental capacity, but also extends to continued and unwanted bothersome behavior. The site staff will look at each case individually and determine the best course of action.

Look at this guys, Rocket claims to be against harassment, but has been harassing me in multiple threads today. Just making sure you all know who we hired as monitor :)

http://sep7agon.net/index.php?topic=19111.0

Thread noted. I'll be talking to Rocket about it next time we're on at the same time.

Speaking of Monitors (Kind of) - if you have suggestions as to what you'd like to see the Monitor's role become, feel free to post them as well.

Can the monitors actually, ya know, do something? I mean, how they are now they're close to useless. Because how they are now, nobody has to respect them.

I have plans for the role once we get more people in here and open up private groups.

For now, they're stuck locking, merging, splitting, moving and pinning threads, as well as approving new members' posts and reporting unsavory behavior to the Ninjas.

This might come as a surprise, but I'm all for a slight mix of Strict and Hybrid. I like the idea of a more strict system because it completely eliminates the problem of mod bias. They don't have to second guess themselves and question if the person is being a dick and tiptoeing around the rules, just give them a little slap on the wrist and work by the book. However, that should only apply in the Serious board and in cases of personal attacks. In the case of "shitposting," obviously spam is banable but the style of shitposting that some of us have kinda formed is just posting threads with the intention of being funny/silly/clever. I see nothing wrong with that.

Problem is, most of these aren't funny or clever.

Doesn't mean other people don't find them that way, though.

Doesn't mean we should allow a slew of threads with no discussion value on the front page.

Well sufficient time was given for people to vote. So we'll just work with what we've got.

But given the fact that there's, what, like 700 or more registered accounts on here? I understand that a large majority of those are probably alts and people who just made an account and don't post, but still. Personally I would take into consideration that a lot of people probably didn't vote because of something to do with the holiday season.

We average around ~100-115 active users - people are who routinely on and posting. So, we've got around half of that.

Mod team could use a shake-up. Chiefly: Fire Kiyo for conduct unbecoming of a moderator.

Did anything happen as a result though? She didn't get off scot-free, I hope.

Revealing anonymous posters? Isn't that kind of... you know, an egregious abuse of power? Assuming that actually happened.

There were still holes in the Anonymous posting at that time and I wasn't exactly clear on the whole "don't tell people who the anons are" thing with the mods. Some of that was my fault and yeah, a lot of it was on Kiyo.

In the end I didn't think it was bad enough to be taken off the moderation team completely, especially since she's actually a pretty good moderator.

Noelle had nothing to do with that decision, did she?

Not too surprised at the results. It'll be interesting to see how this goes.
