>>10069>it was pure drama janny drama
Janny drama stems from places. I would even say most of it came from the couping party believing they represented the majority of users and Caballo and one or two other mods didn't. Realistically, no-one fucking knows because we (yes, both sides, especially Coma
) kept things unnecessarily internal or unlisted.>overdeveloped structure
To some degree, and I also think that's part of it. We relied too much on the external structure (congress, /assembly/) instead of doing stuff on the appropriate existing boards. I still believe some basic structure is needed to attempt to get some consistency and awareness of changes with a site this big, since we opt not to be a completely hierarchical dictatorship like 4chan or 8chan.>No one really cares about moderation unless you fuck up
Fuck ups are inevitable, in my personal view and experience. Even misclicks can have consequences: we've had a popular cyclical general removed due to a former mod ghostixo
banning all posts by an IP, which we had months prior agreed not to do except on very obvious 4chan raiders with no other post activity (they could theoretically use the same proxy/VPN node as a legitimate user).
In fact, I believe in some ways moderation is already fucked up and it's normalized. Again, this is my own view, but I think most bans are far too long, especially for quality-related reasons.
But overall, you're saying people don't care until it's too late, but by then drama has happened. Prevention, although harder, is the solution.

My only fear is if people will notice changes, but I think they will. Does anyone know if they work on mobile??
>.net just forced the board into the public eye
Honestly I respect them for it and think it's a good move, good on them, but it's definitely not a solution to the problem. The board was a bad idea in my hindsight view and we have not revived it.
