RE: New and Less Shitty Subforum Ideas Topic
Loather's jumped in like I wanted, so:

I'm against deleting content for as long as this is a forum and not a USB stick and space isn't a concern - even if there are issues with how exactly that content is spaced out.

Ergo, my vote's to merge all identical threads which currently have zero replies with some kind of explanation that this was the result of a threadmake spree. Not all the threads though 'cuz Reyweld's already doing things thoroughly in the most positive spirit of Hawkspace and trying to make entertaining things happen in some of 'em.

RE: SUBFORUM IDEAS TOPIC: THE QUORUM QUORNER
There was some proposal for an amendment to quorums in the old thread that was going to be discussed before it got abandoned for a new thread:

Quote:a. Voting will be open for week from post, unless an option has <85% of a vote (of at least 7 votes) after a day, in which case QUICK MOVEMENT status will be bestowed upon it"
b. A mechanism will be designed so that in the future, with a smaller 3 vote quorum, pharmdrugs may be authorized to move things from whatever the active SUBFORUM IDEAS TOPIC is into a designated dumping grounds thread. After Quorum is established, as long as no one has any good reason to oppose the thing being moved after a week of consideration, it'll be done.
i don't think it had a name so i'll name it petey. if is just quoruming; when it comes to a vote you can vote yes for petey a and no for petey b, or vice versa, or both etc

Sure, Petey can stay. As long as he's not secretly the recurring boss from the Mario Series of Video Mario Games

I cannot vote for or against petey because I don't understand it.

i vote yes on this

I'm making a new petition called l30nh4rd where hawkspace posts are counted in a different section, and can be converted to negative normal posts, but only if you have an even number of them.

RE: Subforum Ideas Topic: The Quorum Quorner
I vote against l30nh4rd.

It sounds funny, but then I'd be exposed for the fraud I am. Also I would no longer have 1000+ post count, and would thus not be the 25th biggest poster.

if petey b gets passed then only 3 people would need to agree on this being quorumed in order to move it to a dumping ground, so i suggest that

also petey a would mean as long as at least 7/8 people agree on a thing it doesn't need to wait a week to be dumped.

I think it only needs one more yes to be quorumed

Alright, I'm gonna own up and say that expressing my personal disappointment as a reason for locking the thread was unnecessary and shit-starty.

If we could get serious-but-still-teamfriendly for a bit, I'd like to discuss a Good Post by Wheat from that thread:

this is what I want, but more in general having an agreement on not continuing with any sort of arguments in the future. like the minimum number of arguments in total, for the whole community

political things will be getting probably more intense for the next year and i think we should head it off by agreeing on like some kind of balance of what degree and kind of political conversation is good and what's too much; where it should go, etc and so on

should there be a general politics thread on hawkspace or in the general forum where people are encouraged to do current political events or just go with the current setup? should this be like, a general agreement or maybe just an agreement for a moratorium on any political discussion between loather and me (bc obviously i don't think anything productive or enjoyable will ever happen when the two of us discuss political things at the least)

not talking about establishing rules, but guidelines to lessen the likeliood of not-fun things from happening in the future


I was toying with the idea of a Politics thread in Gen Chat months and months back, but decided not to because I foresaw it quickly becoming inaccessible and regarded as "toxic" by non-regulars to that thread. It would've been needlessly stressful for me to moderate, and I always feel weird about making decisions about Forumnular Conduct.

A place where people can non-judgementally ask questions like "what else will I vote for, other than presidential nominees, when I go to the polling booth" or "what's "socialism" and how do the dictionary/academics/lay people/newsmen differ in their use of the term" or "my state party sucks at explaining who I can vote for for downticket stuff, can you help me find out" would be a really good thing.

Ideally, it's a space that caters not to PolChat Regulars (people who know enough to debate the merits of different political platforms), but for folks not up ins on the Big Complicated Mess that is their political system and want to get more informed.

Rules of engagement for folks keen to debate political theory are definitely needed though. I as a mod would not set or enforce rules regarding individual Users because I'd want to trust the folks in question to know themselves and each other well enough to keep the community pleasant for everyone else.

E: Ok I will also Call Petey A and B to quorum, and vote in favour of both

i propose PIE

it's nothing. Just something to vote on if you like pies.

Voting yes on it also gives me permission to harvest your organs but who cares about fine print. Do you like pies? Then get PIE to quorum!!
