Welcome Faggots (rules and updates on site features)

    Mission statements are gay, so here's the quick and dirty of where we stand: rdfrn has apparently bit the big one (or soon will) and we need a place to shitpost. Hopefully we've learned something from the last three dead communities and this one will hang around for a little longer but every autist who has shat out some webspace has said the same thing, so you're rolling the dice here just like we all did on each site that came before. On the last three sites (rdfrn, sanc, zoklet) a lot of time and effort was spent on deciding what the rules were and how they were going to be enforced but so far no one has been hurt by overly permissive rules and three sites have died at the intersection of autism, admin burnout, and doxxing. In light of this fact I want to try something different, namely the minimal set of rules that are necessary for a forum to operate because I just don't have the energy to police a bunch of man-children on the internet. With that let's look at:

    [SIZE=26px]The Rules[/SIZE]
    1. No content which will get Lanny arrested. I'm not a fucking lawyer so I don't know what the fuck that really boils down to but we're going to play it by ear. When the cops show up at my door or I wake up with a C&D notice in my mail I'm going to be mad. When I see things which will obviously land me in jail (like child porn (the real kind)) I'll delete it.

    2. No intentionally disrupting discussion. This one is, admittedly, fuzzy. The site is here so people can have a place to talk about shit they want to talk about. If you spam incoherent shit in a thread about something technical or specific then allowing that would just be defeating the point of the site. If you call someone a faggot for making a dumb thread, well that's probably alright. Listen, it's not a clear line when shitposting in good faith becomes intentional disruption but my pledge to you, gentle posters, is that I really don't give a fuck and will alway err on the site of not doing shit.

    [SIZE=26px]FAQ[/SIZE]
    Isn't there a personal info rule?[SIZE=12px] No, there isn't. Reg an account under a different name or man the fuck up. Why in the fuck would I waste my free time cleaning up your fuckups in maintaining anonymity? Besides, niggers who see your PI posted on the open forums are the absolute least of your concerns if your info is out there.[/SIZE]

    What's up with the shitty layout and broken features.[SIZE=12px] Idio didn't exactly give us a ton of time to arrange alternatives. On the up side I'm a professional programmer and the first admin who's actually qualified to operate a site since Zok (and his coding skills were a bit shaky, you should look at the zb3 source some time). On the down side I'm a professional programmer and work, sometimes crazy hours. If something is fucked up open a thread about it in the support forum and it will go on the list (below) and I'll get around to it as soon as I can be fucked to burn some time.[/SIZE]

    Who are the mods/Can I be one? There are none and no. I am the only person who has elevated privileges and I have to log into a different account to get them. I was a mod on zoklet for a while and while doing that it occurred to me that the best mods didn't need to have additional privileges on the site to do well and the worst mods only abused the mod tools. You just read the rules, if enforcing them ever becomes more than a one-person job then it's obvious they've been stretched well beyond what's intended. I may appoint another admin at the point that I decide to stop participating in the site but I have no intention of having more than one person making moderator decisions at a time.

    [SIZE=26px]Site Features
    [SIZE=12px]This is really mostly just for me, to keep track of the technical things I need to do when I have time to. If you have an issue make a thread and make sure it ends up on this list. If I put it in bold (strikethrough once I get around to that...) and it still isn't fixed feel free to bitch at me.[/SIZE][/SIZE]

    Don't worry blood, I couldn't rise above my station as a chronic shitposter if I wanted.

    P.S. Your homoerotic advances are highly appreciated.

    Private property (this website) + anarchy = anarcho-capitalism. You're finally one of us. Embrace the spontaneous order rather than clinging to your desires to be a dictatorial central planner.

    There's a fundamental difference between denying authority in a special case (this one, based on historical evidence) and denying its legitimacy generally. More concretely, no one who's owned the webspace this community is housed in has had special access to truth in the realm of setting rules on a BBS and that includes me. Just because I don't have the expertise to make good super-legal restrictions on site content doesn't mean such restrictions don't exist, or if they don't exist it doesn't mean that more generally there doesn't exist better or worse restrictions on the populous at large that can justifiably be maintained by force. The point here is that justified authority comes in proportion to domain expertise. Whereof one has no expertise (forum administration) thereof one must not legislate.

    In case you forgot what the theme looked like, it's there. If you need the exact color, there's this one application that you can use to find out what color it is. I think this is the right one. http://www.hexcolorfinder.com/
