I also feel like this is a bold move on Wyldkat's part. I'm interested in seeing what ensues.

Shenanigans, of course.

I certainly fucking hope so!

Oh and remember how long firewillow's pagan forum lasted?

Not very long. But I blame that on those two spending a good month just fucking.

That and making C_A a mod. It was looking pretty cool for awhile, until they both poofed.

C_A did less modding than I did, and all I did was log in. :lulz:

I like CPD. I am willing enough to give the other two leeway. A Pagan forum that can run with minimal hierarchy and mod interference would, in itself, be borderline miraculous.

That's generally the idea actually.  The idea is to set up a forum with a very few obvious rules, let people know how we'd like people to deal with one another and the forum itself, then let people be people (hopefully in an intelligent manner most of the time... {fingers crossed}).  There will be nudges and suggestions but any type of ban is going to be ridiculously rare.  That's the goal anyway.

I also applaud not putting your content behind a log-in wall (my first turn-off from TCC). You will have to deal with spam and spider-bots, so I hope some-one is capable of that type of user/database management.

Babs has a decent grasp of that shit. And I can pick it up fairly quickly. So long as no one expects me to re-write the original code. And no one distracts me with something shiny and/or a pizza.

If y'all have any comments, questions, suggestions, or snark about the rules we've got there, please let me know. I am curious about how this is going to go over.

Oh my, SM is there. :lulz:

Oh and I shall be making some helpful suggestions on the rules. Probably next time I choose to commune to the void.

I'm a tech moron...  

You can't post unless you register and there are some boards that aren't viewable without registering, as well as a couple of post count related boards.

Having read the rules..... :lulz:

Yes, please!  There is a suggestions board.  There are only three actual rules at the moment.

On that note:

++Post legibly in a normal writing style.  Use capital letters, lower case letters and appropriate punctuation.  Write in short paragraphs separated by blank lines and don't write in "netspeak.”++

This seriously NEEDS a re-write. Or it will cause problems.

I suggest going the "it's only a guideline" route for this specific topic. Also, just inform people not to be surprised if the general forum population refuses to respond, or responds in a negative way to such "outlandish" behavior if it is repeated unnecessarily. Mention that this is a response out of the Modreation teams hands unless attacks get personal. See rule #...    :kingmeh: ..oh, that's another thing. Look into an outline structure.

I only see two rules.

What exactly do you mean by "follow all US law"? :?

I am very in favor of there only being two rules, BTW, I am just thinking that second one needs VERY serious clarification.

How would you suggest it get re-worded?

The Spirit of the Forums are not rules, just guidelines.  I guess we didn't get that across clearly enough.  I'll see about an outline set up or something for it.

I only see two rules.

What exactly do you mean by "follow all US law"? :?

Follow all U.S. laws.

I am very in favor of there only being two rules, BTW, I am just thinking that second one needs VERY serious clarification.

How do you clarify follow all U.S. laws?

U.S. Law. As in don't do illegal stuff. Is it worded wrong or does it just look weird without the .s after U and S? Because I read it the first time and thought "US law? WTF is that?"
