It will nice that Regular Users will be able to post Videos.

That has always been a sore spot within HTG that only Moderators could post Videos and Senior Members couldn't.

Trouble with that is people can now post anything which may cause a lot of spam posts. Uncensored content for example.

Well folks could always Spam and also post Spam with (Still Pictures) so the Spam count should not change.

The Moderators will continue to be able to delete offensive content I would think.

Actually it's kind of automatic if more than one person flags a post it will be removed. So What Exactly Happens when you “Flag”?

Also interesting What do user trust levels do?

and we get so many wrong flags as it is. But we deal with it. No probs.

We must shape up!

I think the user (flager) can also unflag when a mistake is made. Not possible here.

No mods???

That is a shame, it was kind of comforting to know that their were people behind the scenes sorting out the problems, running the checks and such.

What you not intending to stick around and see how things go ?

Although I'm pretty sure there are plenty of sites that would be happy to have experienced mods.

As long as I can continue to post stuff like this, I think everything will be just fine...

Darth Vader - Riding a unicycle - dressed in a kilt and playing the bagpipes...


Otherwise - I may have to find a new place to hang out.

Wasn't so much modded warlock, I binned it myself because as you know one of the modders I suppose didn't want anything like that on there even though it wasn't doing any harm.

Probably because I announced I would try something and so they figured it was a testing category and not a conversation thing. Then the topic got frozen, which seemed like they did it because no one was posting there anymore, but, WHO CARES :)

Yeah, your right it was suggested I guess. You removed it before it was done for you. Who cares in that one instance maybe but if it continues...........

It shouldn't do, looking around on what's been posted in some of those categories there's been plenty of bad language and no one's said anything and plenty of pics posted.

If it relates to the category then I suppose they allow it, don't know about all the bad language though.

Time will answer all.

I think the problem was that meta is a question and answer forum and we were kind of using it for testing. Since the thread was answered and was deteriorating he closed it.
