In this inaugural edition of the Sep7agon Weekly Update..

  • The Serious Forum is undergoing a makeover - what you can expect, and how you can contribute to the changes?
  • A Mexican, Christian and Canadian get Mod Powers - is this the end of the world as we know it?
  • Hot Threads to watch out for!
  • Hear directly from TheOneTrueDesticle on Penises, Anarchy, and McDonalds Tea




Serious Showdown

In the same tune as other updates with Sep7agon 2.0, include a change to the UI, staff, and rules, the Serious forum is also beginning to undergo adjustments into what topics will be found within. Currently in a trial phase running for the next couple weeks, the Serious forum will contain topics limited to politics, religion, military & war, medicinal stories that may have national and/or global impact, philosophy, and ethics.

Meanwhile, new stories and conversations related to topics such as sexuality, science, math, or other previously allowed topics will be directed to The Flood, for at least the duration of this trial phase. Sorry PSU, your sports topics aren't serious enough for us


This trial aims to hone what is allowed in Serious after issues regarding topics being posted there, while aiming to try and get more quality threads into The Flood to counteract what some have called "a torrent of shitposting*"
*No one has called it that
Along with the trial phase, resident (unlicensed) psychologist Mr. P is currently running a poll as to whether or not the Serious forum should change to coincide with the policy change. Potential options include "The Senate", "Conference", or the option to create your own. For more information and to vote, head here

For more information on the policy change, and to give your impressions and thoughts, head on over to the Serious forum and weigh in in Mr. Psychologist's stickied thread. The trial is set to run roughly two weeks, and the staff will go over findings and make any final decisions afterwards.



"Everything in Moderation....Including Moderating"

As Cheat announced earlier this week, the Sep7agon site staff will be undergoing changes to streamline how it handles incidents and make everyone feel more useful in the grand scheme of things.

The three veteran Ninjas, Flee and DemonicChronic, have been promoted to the role of Master Forum Ninja alongside LC and Mr. P. Congrats to them, don't ban us with your bias.

Meanwhile, the three veteran Monitors, including Yutaka, TBlocks, and Rocketman287, have all been promoted to Forum Ninja for a trial period to assess who, out of those three, will retain moderating privileges. Grab your popcorn folks, it's time for Battle Royale!


During this trial phase, the three Ninjas will have (nearly) every ability allowed, and will be studied by the remainder of the staff, namely Cheat. At the end of the trial period, all or some of the three Ninjas will be retained in the role. Those who do not make the cut will (likely) have the ability to reshuffle into another role on the staff, or will have the option to be a regular member if they wish.

The Monitor role will, tentatively, be retired as changes are made regarding what it will become in the future. Don't expect it to be gone long.

For questions and concerns regarding the staff changes, trial mods, or anything else staff related - feel free to private message a moderator or post a thread in Septagon.



Fiery Hot Topics




Interview

Welcome to the very first Sep7agon Weekly Update interview section, where we'll be interviewing various community members every single week. Today on the hot seat, we have the infamous TheOneTrueDesticle, or Desticle for short. Desticle, how does it feel to be the live guinea pig?

Eh, I've lived through worse.

Care to tell us about your time on Sep7agon, how you found out about us and such?

So basically the only reason I signed up is because Cheat made it so guests couldn't view post replies right around the time of the AdSense kerfuffle. Latsu had been sending me threads every few days to look at but when it got to that point I finally just signed up This was shortly after the release of Destiny (and the overthrowing of #OffTopic by the desticles) so I wanted a name which would sufficiently piss off a long-time B.net user. I chose TheOneTrueDesticle and nothing was ever the same.

So, what're thoughts on Anarchy? You definitely become one of the more recognized members whenever that opens up for the weekend

Am I? Well, I'd say a majority of the conflicts I bring on are at the time of Anarchy weekend. In fact, I have something really special planned this time around for my good friends.

But let me tell you the story of the first Anarchy weekend

I'd love to hear it.

I had signed up exactly one day before Anarchy first started. I wasn't really sure exactly what it was but Latsu seemed excited for it. It was then that I made my mad dash to get my first 25 posts in to attain the sought-after title of "Member" so I could participate in the shitfest. And it was glorious

Oh, indeed. Speaking of those first rounds of Anarchy, can we expect to see any leaked nudes of you in this round? I'm sure your fans would love a glimpse

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).  I honestly don't think they could handle it

Quite cocky, eh?

I recall a story about Zeus, the God of Thunder and one of his many lovers. She asked Zeus if she could see his true form and he told her she would be destroyed or something if she did - I can't really remember. Anyway, that's pretty much what would happen. One look and -blam!-. You're dust. Pretty cool stuff. And yes, they will be quite cocky ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Haha. We'll have to test that out after our interview

I'll have to charge you 1600 Microsoft points for that pleasure

Damn! 100 points short.

Aw, shucks

So, what're your thoughts on the state of forums right now? Any changes you'd like to see our lord and savior Cheat make in the future?

Let's rock. Okay, so Cheat, Like, what the fuck? So imagine in your mind's eye this: A sliding scale of autism. On one end in the depths lies the full autism end. On the other is a complete lack of autism/ Right now, The Flood and Serious make up those two extremes. I think we should enact a "shitposting only" rule in Serious and convert The Flood into a "serious bsns only" forum. Definitely a good idea, yeah?

I'm pretty sure Psy and Meta would castrate you on that one.

Yeah, well, In all seriousness, I'd like to be able to post a general discussion thread in Serious. Because going in, you have the expectation of "no anime spam, no derailing, no shitposting" and so on - think there could be some really great potential for Serious to become a wider discussion board

Obesity could be a huge topic of conversation. Very informative to our members.

Absolutely. In fact, there are quite a few members of the forum who suffer from chronic and severe obesity. So I think having more of an open discussion about it could be very helpful

Come now. Let's not bring Slash's mom into this

ayy lmao

Any shout outs you'd like to make before I let you go?

Yeah, I have a few:

- CIS Scum: You're a neckbeard faggot
- ねこ: <3 u bbe
- Psy: Thanks for being not shitty
- Cheat: My admin tools stopped working again. Pls fix
- Elegiac: Nobody gives a shit when you're going to bed. Shut the fuck up
- Latsu: Come play CS:GO with me, fgt

Final question - if you had the chance, would you sleep with a 10/10 femboy?

So I have a story to tell you regarding that last question

I'll grab the popcorn

Anyway, in the 10th grade, I found out that one of my friends was secretly posing as a 10/10 femboy. So, you know how when you're traveling really fast in a spacecraft, stuff like dust and paint chips and shit can tear your aircraft apart? Crazy shit, huh?

Totally

Sorry, that doesn't have anything to do with the story. I just found that interesting. So anyway. I went to McDonald's and this chick put ice in my drink after I specifically told her not to. What a pile of shit. It's like, half the restaurants I go to refuse to bring me a drink without ice. Hot damn

So to answer your question. No, I wouldn't.

Shame. Well, thanks Desticle for being my guinea pig. We'll go bang now. Until next time folks - don't be a cunt! And if you are interested in the full, unedited interview with Desticle, where he lays into several of our prominent members, PM me for more information!

I meant it both ways.
If he can do it, great, but it's something that depends on a lot of factors to keep up.

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.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
I like it. Very good Frosty.

Why are you so fucking negative?
Uh, with that attitude, I am not the one being negative. Try reevaluating how you interact with people.
