    Tube, do you have any plans to expand upon the forums inclusiveness?

    That's a super broad question, so it's difficult to answer. We plan to be as inclusive to non-douchebags as we can be.

    Thanks for the answer Tube. I remember you mentioning that you were going to review current policies to see if there was room for improvements on this area. Just wondered if you found any yet.

    It's probably going to be more about the implementation of existing policies than any large changes to them. We have a good framework, but implementation is always going to be imperfect. We can work to make it as good as possible.

    Some people will only feel that we're fully inclusive if we allow them to yell and scream and act like douchebags. We don't plan on improving our inclusivity to douchebags, no matter what other groups they may be a part of.

    Because they are out of this world!

    The sun actually doesn't have a scientific name.

    Sol is just the latin word for the sun.

    It's better than "that GV2 star up there" and since we have the solar system it just kinda makes sense.

    Why do only some threads with bracketed words show up highlighted?

    IIRC it's because someone has to manually put each word on a list of "highlight this if it is in square brackets" words

    Makes sense. Thought it would be automatic, but that could be abused easily.

    Hell, probably could be exploited too.

    Sanitize and validate all day long.

    Question regarding the "Best Of..." button.
    Is there a function to collapse quote trees on the Best Of page? I ask because any post that shows up there with a quote tree of more than 5 quotes or so tends to compress the top quote to 1 letter per line and just stretching the post down 3 or 4 screens.

    Yeah take it up with the International astronomical union.

    For what it's worth I like the name Sol too. But I'm biased because I dig Roman history.

    I'm biased because it's the root word for a lot of astronomical crap that we use. Solar calendar. Solar system. Solar cycles. Just call it Sol dammit. 'That GV2 star' is not a fun thing to say.

    In my opinion, I consider these forums to be the model against which all other online communities are judged. The effort taken to foster a high-quality experience in both a top-down manner through moderation, and a bottom-up manner through self-policing is readily apparent. When I go to other forums I'm constantly taken aback by toxic atmospheres, toothless moderation, or mountains of garbage like piles of gifs or mural sized signature images choking every thread.

    I lurked here with increasing regularity for probably ten years before ever registering so I probably had a better idea of what to expect than most when I started posting, but I've always felt that moderation policies all had a legitimate purpose and actions taken were done with an eye towards the well-being of the community as a whole. At least with the things I witnessed it never felt like the mods were acting petty or capricious or pushing a particular agenda beyond "Don't be a shitheel in here" and I have much respect for the whole team because of that.

    So, my question is: Other than "Follow the Rules" as that goes without saying, is there anything we as posters can do to make this forum an even radder place than it currently is?

    I don't think so, not on our end. That feature isn't great, I'm sure improving it is on someone's radar.

    Honestly, the best thing people in the community can do is ignoring people that are trying to rile them up. We saw it yesterday, some gurber gumbler came in and tried to get everyone fired up. No one engaged him, so he got increasingly pissy and then just gave up. If people resist the temptation to let rip with their awesome burn , that would happen in 95% of cases.

  • Munkus BeaverMunkus Beaver regular Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Ok.

    First: Is there anyway you would/could remove the 'redirect' threads from the WB? They are causing a lot of clutter on the page since it doesn't move fast.
    Second: Can we at least make the forum visible but not searchable so people are aware of its existance? It's an art type forum, and many people of that inclination aren't going to join the forum unless they see it. Hell, I only stopped lurking and joined because this place had an art forum that I could see. I've been looking at the traffic, and we have had a HUGE decline in both new people and new content the last few years.

    Ah, found it. You may have to change the font for thread titles with the second bit though, IIRC it doesn't include bold glyphs.
    // Bold thread title brackets
    $(".DiscussionName a.Title").html(function() {
    	var $txt = $(this).html();
    	$txt = $txt.replace(/(\[.*?\])/g, "<b>$1</b>");
