Last but not least. As we mentioned above we attribute our success in part in the feedback that you the user sends us on how we can make the site even better. In February you will see the re-introduction of our political section.
A quick overview of what to expect with this section.
- Users will have to 'opt in' or 'opt out'. If you were already 'opted in' our political forums prior you will automatically be 'opted in' to the new one.
- Posts will not display in 'New Posts'. You will have to go to the political forum to see the new posts.
- This is a self-moderated area. Our rules and Terms of service still apply but you will not be able to click on 'report a post'. If there is an egregious action your account will simply be banned.
- When posts are made in this section you will not see a user name displayed, but you will see 'Guest' displayed.
- If a post is made in the general forums of the site and it is political or becomes political it will be automatically moved into the political section.
We don't expect this to satisfy every desire and wish that every user had. But we want to accommodate those who want to engage in political discussions while at the same time everyone maintains civility and respect in the forum and not putting any undo burden on our moderators. The more they have to moderate the less time to play golf right!
We will continue to 'refine' this area of the website and we will continue to listen to your feedback. But we hope this is a step in the right direction and creates a balance and safeguards to maintain respect and civility among members while discussing these topics.
