    Why does BB get their own subforum, what is this joke.
    Doesn't everybody have their own subforum now? I was rejiggering things. Some forums we've reused if the game probably won't have infinite threads and thus require a specific subforum for a specific game. Hit me up if my design is bad though: my PM door is open.

    If Preppy stopped giving serious responses to trolls in the politics thread he'd have a lot more free time to get shit done.
    This is potentially the most interesting politics have been and/or will be in our lifetimes. Thankfully we have a capable qualified leader to help guide us into the daunting future. *facepalm*

    I generally try not to step in unless something has been going on for way too long without stopping. If I do take actions, the thought is that hopefully a quick reminder can help get things back on track. People that pretty much instantly pop out of the pokey are the people that seemed like they got the message. I believe in y'all, regardless of our differences: that's why I'm here. Pertho by default puts up with way more pointless antagonism than I'd go for: that's part of why he's a mod. I've generally asked mods for less moderation figuring the community can build itself. *shrug*
    edit because I have a moment: Vanilla is probably the best board system we've had, but getting fixes/tweaks is evidently a big PITA which is why there's some things that are almost what would make the most sense. I've been trying to slowly tweak things logically, but there's no Test mode that I'm aware of, which is why sometimes I've done cute things like render the Newbie Dojo invisible. :wtf: Trying to make it the most useful possible: feel free to PM me with feedback/suggestions.


    Looks like Republicans will win both special elections tonight. The swing from the 2016 election is pretty interesting, though: -15 in SC, and probably about -5(?) in Georgia. Should continue to be a very interesting political season, especially with the crazed AHCA shenanigans going on right now. I did like this comment from 538:
    "Just goes to show, you shouldn’t try to predict polling misses."
    Polls are crazy: I appreciate the artistry required to make them seem remotely scientific. :lol:

    I've been pretty busy with life. #fail :sad:

    So he wasn't banned, as I had pointed out? And I fixed his account once it was pointed out it was broken? g2k. Welcome to Vanilla. This doesn't seem like the meta-moderation thread: my PM door is open if you have questions.

    Laura would be a phenomenal choice.

    @pethro I think this thread needs to go back on ice, it is starting to spoil.
    If we've got problem people, the correct response is to handle those people. Locking the thread is not the correct response.

    Politics is pretty interesting, but assume everybody else is operating in good faith. No matter how different your beliefs are, the other people involved are human too. Just like you, they know things and have talents. Just like you, they're dumb about some things and could be better. We don't need to attack people just because they're different.

    What's more interesting is the ban I was handed after posting tweets from the President you didn't like lmao ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I'm pretty certain you weren't banned, since I can see your account history, but thanks for the shade I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
