SOCIAL EXPERIMENT | The new forum moderator is you, it's all of you. Have Fun!

Welcome to the new look ESB forum. Can you smell the freedom?

You, the community are in control now, during this trial we want to see if the community can take care of itself. Our guess is that total chaos will probably unfold, prove us wrong.

From now on, you are all responsible for playing the role of moderator.

Some simple rules to help you.

  • Don’t like something? Flag it! you get 3 flags each per day so choose carefully.
  • Don’t like someone? Ignore them.
  • Talk esk8, don’t hate.
  • Enjoy your freedom.

So…basically what has always been done except you limited the flags to a very low number?

I like the idea. Discourse is built around user levels and community self-moderation, so this is actually closer to the original intention of the system. I feel like the more manual intervention from moderators the easier it is to go off the rails.

I call bulls If I can’t remove this listing then I don’t have moderator access.

thanks for wasting my time.

Are we allowed to bank flags for later?

Can we sell banked flags? Can we purchase other folks’ banked flags? Do the flags have trade-in value for flags on other platforms?

If we donate, can we get more flags?

Let’s talk about a new flag economy.

I think it’s a horrible idea to let you back into this forum. Do not have enough flags to express that.

I like this idea very much. I wish that I can make some new friends here.
