We're going to amend our forum rules before new year to nuke blatant "commercial promoting".
There's a new global moderator applicant besides some technical improvement we want to make so our rules' refreshment gets to take place within January to ponder everything right. This is something important for our focused community so we don't want to rush it.
going to happen right in the beginning of January being the muting of known blatant spammers
, until there's either a new separate forum with sections for each member to express whatever they please or they'll simply stay in pre-moderation forever if we deliberate that's the best path for our community's well-being.
We're still split on having a bigger forum with un-moderated sections for members or doubling-down on moderation here.Personally
, I'd pretty much lean to a smaller forum being quite focused and a very enjoyable peace. We're not doing this for the numbers or aiming at "becoming #1".
On the other hand, technically
, I'm all-in for an expanded forum giving many more facilities and features to members. It can increase participation in new ways we won't be able to enjoy under this forum software.
We'll see; we're going to discuss this point at length
at the moderators' lounge section as soon as 2017 arrives. Regardless of what we choose we're of course open to community feedback in order to adjust course. This matter is still at a very malleable stage.
Thanks for being around!Vic
