Please kill yourselves.

Been that road and decided that it's not worth it, just as it's not worth being a bland 4chan user.

And with that out of the way, I'm happy to introduce my pretentious mind having both high and low self-esteem when talking about stuff here. I await accidently making an idiot out of myself along way

The automatic embedding of tweets and YouTube videos is not entirely clean sometimes. 

In the case of tweets, the end of the URL may get left in the post - simply edit everything after the tweet number off the URL and the problem goes away (note that if you use the in-line edit on a post with a tweet you may have to refresh after editing to get the embedded view back).

In the case of YouTube, some URLs may cause the mod to leave some rubbish in the post after the video (e.g. "/>").  This is a bug in the mod, which I will look into at my convenience; the same code in another forum running the same software does not do this, so I suspect an issue with the theme I have selected here.

Forum Stuff / Moderation matters
« Last post by pwhodges on 05 Feb 2017, 11:16 »
If I feel the need to explain some aspect of my moderation, this is where I shall do it.  The thread is open, so you are at liberty to disagree with my point of view, or to raise issues which you feel need discussing.

I have made some comments on my likely moderation style in the post at the top of the actual Serious Discussion forum area.

Note that it not my intent to impose any political viewpoint on contributors through moderation.  If the forum leans one way more than the other, that is the result of what the contributors write.  I welcome challenges to my viewpoint, and others should also; but they should if possible be presented soberly and with evidence which can be discussed.  Moderation will be a response to behaviour, not views - so there's an opportunity to show that views do not necessarily influence behaviour.

Forum Stuff / Rules
« Last post by pwhodges on 05 Feb 2017, 00:23 »
Well, obviously there will be rules.  I just haven't written them yet; but I will.

Meanwhile, just remember that most forum rules are a local expansion of "don't be a fool", and you shouldn't go far wrong.
  • Be civil - people are more likely to be nice to you if you are nice to them.
  • Be moderate - try to make your points briefly, and don't try to have several discussion in one sequence of posts.
  • Keep legal - whether it's hate speech or illegal media links, don't put them on my server.
