what it says on the can. opinions?
I actually think that's a great idea - part of the reason I was blacklisting election stuff on Tumblr was because the entire Hillary vs Trump narrative was hitting my gaslighting abuse triggers pretty hard, and I imagine segregating political discourse here could help in that people who want to opt out can ask for forum ban.
On the other hand, it may be hard to draw the line between the political and the personal in terms of thread content. :/
I think a politics subforum would be handy. It'd be a good place to shift all the political threads to as well for referencing back, since I know that they're scattered around the Top Serket/FiD/General Chatter forums right now.
Definitely. The discussion is scattered around and I've been shifting between being willing to calmly chat about it to being in an absolute wreck due to anxiety over it. I just want to talk about something else sometimes but a lot of the threads I want to talk in have been derailed at best.
i think that's a good idea. should it be public or members only? im leaning members only but idk what other people think....?
can we split it between the two? main is public, has a private subsub?
please have a subforum, I'd like to know where to avoid for a while till I stop being freaked out
Yeah, there's very definitely some we want private (the rescue thread) and some we want public (get up stand up) so I think a subsub is the way to go.
The most important question though: What pun/play on words should we name them?
The Circus? (Aka Bread and Circuses or Three Ring Circus)
I'd lean towards something a little more optimistic, though I love the reference...
My shit brain immediately wants to go to "Politifap" as a play on politifact but y'know. I'm sure someone could bullshit something about the 'fap' part being a commentary on how much stock people put into politics.
^ my Tumblr tag is polidicks, in the same vein. not sure if good for the sub forum but
My brain immediately jumps to Hamilton. Raise a glass to freedom, and all that.
i named it 'up the people' because i am twelve. now moving threads to there, report if you want yours moved.
I'm very tired and can't navigate yet - is this subforum private? If not, can it please have a private subforum?
I have some things I want to say but doing so in a searchable place is kinda actually dangerous for me and mine.
it's not private. i'd suggest posting those things in top serket instead. a private sub-sub in politics would just provide a false sense of security, i think; people signing up to argue will tend to gravitate there.
Okay, thank you. I changed my mind anyway.
you can PM me if you want to say it for-reals privately.
