    Looking like an on-forum private conversation would be best. I should have plenty of free time this weekend. I'll try to keep it limited to a few people at first and only add others if necessary.

    I like that this discussion is happening. I don't think anything's going to change if all we do is keep saying "just drop the drama". People have specific problems with other people that are difficult to articulate in this particular environment. Would it help to hold a skype chat with all those...

    I for one would almost never post if I couldn't see the SB without posting. 90% of my posts are because I saw in the SB that someone replied to a thread with an interesting title.

    I think the Forum Volunteer and Site Staff badges might be better colored, or would that be too confusing without colored usernames? As they are now, they're really hard to distinguish.

    I don't understand why people are complaining that this was done quickly. The discussion was started in early summer. We asked for designs nearly a month ago. Discussion isn't even over; we just implemented these to see concretely what they look like so we can form more informed opinions and...

    Unfortunately it cannot distinguish between images and emotes. The limitation options are very limited. I'm going to keep it at five for now. There are some limited ways around it, such as combining or rotating/cycling images.

    raised PM char limit to 30k. that first censor mod is awful, and the second doesn't do quite what we want.

    I thought "Like" communicates agreement more than "Yeah". I suppose in the sense that yeah = yes I'm wrong. But I always thought it was awkward to 'like' a post I didn't really like but thought was well-constructed. I was also thinking of adding a "Nah" button as a way of gently expressing...

    I looked into censors recently and it isn't very feasible. The database stores the censored text so there's no way to selectively recover the uncensored version. There's one plugin out there that makes it store the uncensored version and selectively apply the censor when retrieving it, but it's...

    I'm not expecting a "flood of blogs." There's just that one case in a million when it'd be nice to see a blog that caused a problem except the troublemaker deleted it to cover his or her tracks. There are other times when one might want to bring back a deleted blog too, whether it was...

    There was a permissions error. Unfortunately I don't know which way it went. Either HKs weren't allowed to hard-delete their blog entries and they were supposed to be, or members were able to and weren't supposed to be. I and the mod team are leaning toward nobody being allowed to hard-delete...

    Fig, yes it has happened several times in the past, with several people including myself. I can't be bothered to go looking around in logs for evidence, but I assume hearing it from me will be enough to convince you. If it's still going on though, I'd like to see evidence too.

    Subforums tend to bury topics and hurt activity overall, but I might consider adding prefixes for those categories, like the games in WoZ.

    I agree. I've brought this up with the mods and added it to the handbook as well. Most actions should be sandwiched by communication in order to be most effective. Warning, resolution, explanation. The trick, of course, is judging whether a thread is "serious" or when a warning would be...

    #2 isn't feasible because it's a global setting and not per usergroup, so the shop plugin can't change it. As for #1, I'd need a good argument why 25 isn't enough. Keep in mind its purpose, a simple "title".
