  • i prefer to make fun of idiots online because its the most effective way to convince the lurkers who are on the fence and its really such a shame that the only options are making fun of idiots or engaging in pointless intellectual discussions with people who will never be convinced man i really wish there were a third way thatd be pretty cool dont you think so bart but really its all for the lurkers and calling people dummies on the internet makes a real difference and saves lives we are super important dont forget it buddy.

Where the fuck was my post moved?
Ok, so we're starting to use the mod buttons occasionally to do stuff.  This brings up some topics that need to be sorted.

1.  How to move topics from one thread to another. 

It's a two-step process in Elkarte.  First you split the topics into a new thread.  Then you merge the new thread with the desired destination thread.  The "Split" and "Merge" buttons are underneath the last post of each thread page.

2.  Fucking reports.  The report system in Elkarte is behind the scenes, and doesn't create a new thread.  There's a mod to the ancestor forum software (Simple Machines) that turns reports into threads, and it can probably be adapted to Elkarte down the road somewhere.

3.  What do?

I propose that we log routine mod-editing actions in a thread in TSO.  Something to the effect of "Moved some posts from thread X to thread Y".   If a report needs "what should we do?" philosophical discussion, then whoever first sees the report should start a thread about it.  We might eventually need a subforum. 

Does that sound adequate for now?  Other suggestions?

Maybe things don't need to be so complicated as they used to be.
I have a Darwin-debased mind.

I doubt there will be many philosophical discussions about what to do with a report.  There haven't been in a long while afaik

Somehow I've wound up back in the middle of shit.  :(
