posticon Everyone Should See All The Forums


Spike, I don't think you should hide the Foundation and Netherworld sections. They are sausage making, but are integral to the site. Seems like a moderator issue.

That would be a change to the forum. You know the drill:

quote:

19. Forum Modification: Anything about the forum can be changed (where feasible) if 3/4 of the moderators agree to exact changes. Forum Administration will not undertake heroic measures to make expensive or technically difficult changes. Administration may make minor edits to the forum to increase consistency or clarity after posting their intent in the Foundation & Bureaucracy section and waiting 24 hours for members and moderators to make objections. If any moderators object, the issue must be handled in the official manner.

Are any moderators reading? Let's take a poll:

RedQ

Who else?

I'm always for full transparency. I know certain forums are blocked when you are unregistered, but once you register is anything still blocked?

No, everything is visible to logged on members. The Bureau and Netherworld are blocked from unregistered lurkers.

Lack of moderator participation is a problem.

Me and Lucid think that visitors should see everything. No moderator opposes the idea.

Motion: that the Foundation & Bureaucracy subforum and the Netherworld subforum be made visible to all visitors and not just to logged in members.

If you say, "So moved," and Lucid seconds it, I will post a banner notice drawing attention to the measure.

Actually I'm fine with the status quo as long as registered users can see everything and there are no barriers to registration. I think it makes sense to "hide" the netherworld from unregistered users so that those forums don't get crawled by bots.

That said, I don't have a strong opinion either way really. I don't feel strong enough to second it, but I wouldn't oppose it.

I say go with openness. If we get an infestation, much like - ah, forget the grimy analogy.

We can make this or that "read only" for most peeps, or something, if a problem rears its ugly head. We will work it out.

If you let infections scare ya, sure, you'll scratch less.

But also eventually smile less, have many fewer fun memories, and fewer stories to tell and hear.

I will consider Red to have moved for the vote and you to have seconded it. It is official:

Motion: that the Foundation & Bureaucracy subforum and the Netherworld subforum be made visible to all visitors and not just to logged in members.

This vote ends at 5/17/2018, 9:46 pm forum time.
