Because most users are 2016 tourists that treat tripcodes as a registration system and not as a disposable identity meant for use in a few threads. Secure tripcodes shouldn't even be a thing, they're supposed to be crackable.

This is a discussion thread about the concepts of community self-moderation and self-curation, how they can apply to this site, and its interaction with the extent of staff-enforced 'quality control' (deleting reactionaries, idpol, derails, etc.)
There's pages of other threads for other topics so don't derail it with 'jannies should/nt ban [x]'.
—–

I believe a discussion community should ideally be capable of self-moderating. There are some obstacles to this, and I want to ask what they are, which can be solved, and how it can be achieved.

1) Why curate?
In a sentence, so that the catalogs aren't filled with or endorsing 'the same thread every week', reactionary shitposts, idpol bait topics and other generally-unwanted or quality-degrading topics.
Most of the community consider this a detraction from insightful threads getting attention, a welcome sign to unwelcome users, or simply a bad experience. Too much of this, and the users leave and the site essentially dies.

1) b. Why self-curate?
In a list:
>so that the site isn't reliant on random volunteer jannies to stop the above from happening
>so that jannies can be told with confidence to not curate topics that currently would just sit at the top of the site all day if they didn't
>so that a raid when jannies aren't online isn't paralyzing for hours

seething janny didn't even read the post, all he fears is irrelevancy on an irrelevant site, how ironic.

 No.16517

>>16512
Bringing janny drama into this really detracts from any seriousness.

I agree with some things here but the best way to do these kinds of things is to formalize them and have them imposed by jannies. Warning bans for bait takers, encouraging reporting, shit like that.

There's a big issue with not taking the bait:
Reactionary positions go unchallenged. How do you plan on dealing with this?

 No.16524

Not a mod but ok
You just want people to self-impose a karma system, it seems
Most problems could be solved by just saging shit threads, you don't need to do anything extra

 No.16538

A very good description of the problem.
While I would agree this all sounds very nice, I can't help but think it breaks down when it comes to solutions.
Just to counteract bait threads you need to make high quality threads, effortpost, make OC make people aware of the problem of the problem of the attention trap outlined continuously. That looks an asymmetrical fight.
>>16517
>go unchallenged
Who cares if they are unchallenged if no one sees them? Compared to a shouting match over hundreds of posts this problem is trivial.
Sage and move on has been wisdom passed down through the ages for a reason.

There's no reason a leftists should be using these words as much as they are used here. It's mostly used by right wingers who adopt socialist imagery and vulgarize theory to fit their ideological needs. Disc0rd retards, right wing idpolers, conservative "socialists", ironic and unironic nazbols, all of you wolves in sheep clothing should be purged on sight. No leniency for disease-ridden vermin.

Ah, but you can use them.
It does describe a real thing and I find that I have to call reactoids degenerate ("atavistic" could theoretically be a substitute) on the reg. I don't want it to get wordfiltered to casanova Rightoid.

Can we open a mental health board? Some of us has deep problems but won't go to neo-nazi filled imageboards. We might discuss our past traumas, lives, mental health there.

They don't necessarily have to be misogynist or neo-nazi. But you are right. A space for mentally ill to wallow in their misery is not something we should have. It shouldn't exist in all of the internets. Because it creates a vicious cycle of misery that never ends. Maybe if those guys could go outside and talk to someone they wouldn't have been the same.

 No.16292

But something r9k'ish(where misogyny, racism etc. is prohibited) could be a little fun nevertheless. We don't have anywhere else to tell personal stuff on an anonymous board.

Make a counter argument. Who decides where the ego is? The mods? Literally every decision they make is a bad one. The only trips would be horny posters and everyone who wants to talk about politics would lose it
