    I don't think that was ever said? They're on moderation queue and can't edit or delete posts anymore afaik

    We've had people request bans from TCHGB, but I don't think we've ever restricted anyone to it, that would be sorta extreme.

    Okay, here's my tentative proposal:

    What if I just leave things as they are now for a while and see how people feel in a week or two?

    applechime "well, you know, a very — a very crunchy person."

    i am now strongly opposed to "winner" ever being removed

    upon backreading i see why "hugs" was not comfy for people but "winner" is bringing an almost equal amount of joy to my heart. All Pets Are Winners

    edit: (also, re: "useful" vs "informative" -- if i had to choose one i would want "informative" more than "useful"!! "informative", ironically, strikes me as more useful than "useful" does!! seems more neutral and more versatile)

    I find the new ratings very useful for shitposting as you can probably tell

    Okay, so, I think this was before you started at CF, but when that system first showed up, it was just the "Armor of God" and you had to accumulate a given number of blessings to buy the parts. And it actually took significant time. And it was still an awful idea.

    I was there for the old-fashioned Armor of God. That stuff was fun!

    Strangely enough, last night swart got me hunting up the earliest reference to CaDan's Rules for Discussing Christianity on the Internet.

    What are the chances we could get what, yes, and okay ratings?

    For reference, I've not been planning to add/change ratings, just because every time we talk about any changes multiple people have distress about it, and my thought is that almost any change will be upsetting to people.

    I think "What" and "Okay" have beeen discussed previously, but people decided it was too easy to use those negatively.
    Of course, the existing ones also can (See "I'm trash and I should just die" "Agree"), but it's a bit harder and more context-dependent.

    Moving this back up to That's So Meta because there's new discussion and maybe it's relevant.
