World forum is hidden by default, has a disclaimer system, returns back to Famov/Arch, other stuff

This is a solution to the "new users come here and immediately see racism" problem proposed by Count Dooku and SOH and then tweaked a bit by me.

Basically, the world forum is hidden from newest posts/replies/etc by default. You can still get there and get it back on your feed by going through a disclaimer system. New users can find it the same way.

Let's look at how it works:



The link has been moved here and has a disclaimer attached to it. Note that this change doesn't affect you if you already have your own personal quicklinks or have them set back to the old style.



World forum posts are hidden everywhere by default.



If you visit the world forum or any of its posts, you get this disclaimer. The text could be improved -- maybe someone can come up with a better version?

You must click the button to continue.

Once you do, it saves both your IP address and your account (if you're logged in). You only need to sign the disclaimer with one of them -- so people that don't have accounts can still access the world forum like normal.





Once you sign it, the disclaimer disappears from the quicklinks and the forum will appear in your site feed, unless you're using the &not or &only options.

Famov / Arch

Things are now up to Famov and Arch in that forum again. I've talked to them about the hate speech issue and hopefully they'll be able to come up with something.

Forum Elections

In a month or two I want to have another world forum election to see if you guys want to keep Famov/Arch or elect a different set of mods. I'd like to make elections an annual or biannual thing as well.

TRIGGER WARNING

I suspect a new election would be more of a popularity contest, as the forum doesn't have the balance it once had.

You should maybe post this in the politics forum too as I think there are some people who don't check outside of that forum much if at all. Also maybe have that thread pinned as a general discussion where stuff like debates or explaining what they'd do as mod or at least focus on happens.

The balance it once had

you mean no balance at all when masse was here? No moderation.

you are right though. The moderators are unbalanced. All together the Moderation team swings slightly more to the right if anything for this forum.

seems to me that you are afraid you can no longer shit post with no repercussion. Maybe now we can get some decent discussion from the alt right. doubt it.


I think null should be the moderator of the forum. You guys can vote for who ever but if they are not active (Arch) or have a history of never addressing any issues or just flat out ignoring them (looking at you Famov) it is going to be pointless.

here is to hoping that the momentum for these changes doesn't fizzle out and die.

You literally just called me a pedophile the other day and then have the nerve to whine about shitposts? The nerve to be the aggressor and also play victim?

I would be banned if i said what i think about you and what should happen to you.

@Xhin @Famov @Arch is anyone going to give SOH a temp ban? I got banned for much less (not providing a source when demanded)

Dont go after 18 year old girls then.

You are right you should be banned for calling me and my family Illegals through out your time on this site. Whats stopping you from doing it now?

And lol thats not how it works. No one gave me a warning nor was my post tag. if anything my point is pretty much true. those who exclusively go for 18 year old girls would jump on the idea of going after a younger age girl if it were legal.

and sorry when I start posting dribble like, "the holocaust is fake" "obama was born in Kenya", "vaccines cause autism" you can accuse me of shit posting.

I've already explained why I think that's not the best or even most balanced idea in the previous thread. Just saying though.

I did tag your post (and the subsequent post by IKM, which called #85 gay). Coincidentally, you also called for more moderation in that post.

Poptart gets banned for calling IKM a nazi

I get banned for not posting a source

SOH calls someone a pedophile and gets a simple tag?

Seems like an unequal distribution.

Also, it seems like Xhin may want us to ultimately pick two mods, which means there may be a decent chance one will represent the right (and Famov will probably remain if that is the case because the right leaning members have not really expressed much interest in change at this point) and one will be representing the left. If anything we'd probably need another person representing the left not a moderate to take that position, and someone who will actually do something. Just saying there are options for that as well as active ones. Arch's problem wasn't just their activity it was their unwillingness to act too.

Didn't this happen at least several times? And weren't you like at least warned about it?
