Yeah, go ahead, move the topics and turn this thing off to save carbon credits.

...about this subforum...

Post by Pyrrho » Sat Feb 14, 2015 2:07 pm

What's it to be then, eh? It hasn't been set for true moderation for quite some time. I plan to move all the topics out to the Skepticism and Critical Thinking subforum and turn this subforum off.

That is, unless you all want me to play moderator and approve all your posts prior to their publication, which would result in delays of several hours at minimum.

Vote early, vote often.

The way you worded the poll, it looks like you mean every post on the website. You actually meant every post in the Moderated Discussion subforum only, correct?

Yes.

I'm ok with it either way. I voted for "keep the Moderated Discussion subforum" but I'm ok if it goes away.

While we are shuffling forums... Should we do something about the MonsterTalk and Julia Sweeney forums since nobody uses them that way anymore?
