>6. Do not sit on the default flag or post with no flag all the time. Use other flags, preferably the flag most relevant to your specific post, or you may select flags at random. Those who ignore this rule will be occasionally banned and told to switch flags. Do not try to create an identity around constant use of a specific flag.

This is probably one of the stupidest rules I've ever read. Is it even enforced? Delete rule 6 already.

Also why the bloody hell was an epic wynn flag ever added? Moderation should be discouraging the decay of the board, not encouraging it.

I'm pretty sure that OP's thread does not violate rule 4 or 3.

Rule 5, sure, though. Maybe rule 7 since he keeps breaking rules with signature fagging all the time.

He's reducing the overall anonymity of the board by creating a persona and instigating identity-based drama.

The more people that do this kind of thing, the less anonymous the remaining anons become. We are the most anonymous when everyone is anonymous.

Yes, writing styles and file names and all that give away things too, but what the anon in question is doing with signature fagging (and avatarfagging but I don't think that's against the rules) is really intentionally trying to create an identity for oneself.

We're supposed to be anonymous and about ideas not personas.

5763ca  No.347

All he has to do is stop signing his posts with a signature.

He can keep doing everything else the same and even write his own book and link it when he likes but every single post having a signature is stupid.

All users have the rights to Free Privacy and Free Publicity. Every user as far as Free Privacy goes, has the right to moderately restrain individual personal information about their self. Every user as far as Free Publicity goes, has the right to use any social media to spread information about their self.

All users have as much right to be a secret, as they do to be a battle cry. To take away the user's right to control their information is a breach of these rights that all users must fight, for the sake of their own freedom.

Freedom before Anonymity. We are not a collectivist hegemony of non-identifiable users. If the government wants you, they'll find you regardless of this attempt at putting security before liberty. Anyone who would sacrifice a little bit of liberty for a little bit of security will deserve neither and lose both.

To separate the person from the idea, is to create a soulless boring detail without context. To separate the idea from the person, is to create a soulful thoughtless story without meaning. Respect the value of both; the master and their lessons are both important to achieving understanding.

Fringe Moderation Philosophy In A Nutshell:

Create a board where people have the maximum free speech possible to discuss religions, metaphysics, occult, etc. (related topics) in an anonymous environment with a few minimum of rules that are entirely technical (e.g. no duplicate threads) and have nothing to do with moderating opinion.

32144d  No.360


I guess in the end it comes down to sacrificing a little bit of freedom of speech for a little more anonymity.

>All users have a right to privacy and a right to freedom of speech. Privacy is required to guarantee free speech. You are reducing the pool of anonymity by using a signature to identify yourself in every post.

When you put it this way I can see your thought process behind the rule and I can agree to an extent. I just think the amount of anonymity gained is REALLY minuscule, but so is the sacrifice for it.

4aca88  No.361


Once you have an identity it's a slippery slope towards a lot of shit that you could never have predicted from the start. It leads to all kinds of dynamics on imageboards that become pure cancer and end in a very bad way, both for the individuals who opted to create an identity for themselves, and for the boards infested with their personas.

Just my interpretation but "the creating identity rule isn't enforced at all" (without knowing the larger context as I haven't read that imgur screencap) might just mean that, at the time of that email exchange, nobody was enforcing it because they didn't have to? Was there anyone at that specific time that email exchange happened violating that rule?

e8f142  No.351


I think also that, in regards to the rules, it's the exact same technicality as with police. That is, they don't have to enforce the law, they can if they want to. The exact term is called discretion. Moderators are allowed to use discretion in whether they enforce a rule or not. One example is, if someone starts a question thread, even though it violates rule 2... if it immediately sparked really interesting replies and conversation before a mod got to it, it can just be left alone.


Do some research into the above and you get the idea.

Mods are encouraged to be laid-back and not heavy-handed, to be forgiving and to come to try to correct the misbehavior through communication and such.

In the case of the certain someone causing trouble right now he's been blatantly breaking the rules and stirring up trouble despite all attempts at getting him to stop signature fagging for months now.

Nobody likes Epyc Wynn. If you're so dead set on this free speech thing then just know, the board will always be terrible. It could be a great board if half the threads weren't blatant sarcastic shitposts and half the replies weren't obvious bullshit.

Ya you can namefag if you are the OP of your thread though. That's about the only case. It better be a damn good thread or everyone will call you a faggot as per the customs dating back to the epoch of imageboards :)

No you're not supposed to namefag even then not sure where you got this notion from.

Basically the only time you're sort of allowed to namefag is if you can mention yourself or a person as being the author of a book or other public work.

Whoever said not to ask questions? You're allowed to ask questions.

bd170f  No.270


You cannot make an OP just to ask a single question, but otherwise it's fine. You can get away with asking a question within an OP provided the main purpose of the OP is discussion while the question is merely a side-matter. You can also ask a question within a thread provided you aren't doing so within the OP. And if all that fails, the Q&A thread covers questions in general. This is to prevent the board from being flooded by newbies posting tons of threads asking "HOW DO I MAGIKY MY ANUS!???" while experienced users feel the urge to wince and leave the board.

You explained how rule 2 works very well.

bd170f  No.286


I would not mind but I have no idea who would allow such revisions to be made. I would not see it as overall worth-while unless I knew in advance Rule 5 were going to be revised to allow users to identify their own selves if they wish to. If that change cannot be made, I do not wish to bother with the other rules which for me are a secondary issue compared to the biggest issue caused by Rule 5's present wording.

The flag rule isn't really a big deal anymore but there were people bypassing the flags system to post without a flag before. The rule is mostly there now just to inform people not to flagfag, that is, not to just always use the same flag; that you're expected to change your flag from time to time. This is mainly to prevent the formation of an identity / to keep in line with the principle of anonymity.

c97ea2  No.263


It relates to rule 5. If people aren't in the habit of using different flags all the time, then it becomes easier to identify someone, so we encourage flag use. It's so people don't stick out for using a flag or form identities around flags.

ITT: We discuss whether anons are in the right when they create spam threads purely to advertise a discord.

Some ideas:

>We can make a board page that is a list of discords we already have a list of "friends of /fringe/" listing various boards. I personally wouldn't much enjoy having to constantly update and add various random discords (and take them down if they are dead) maintaining such a list but it's an idea.

>…or people can post their off-site links in pre-existing threads without creating a whole thread just to advertise.

>…or I can slightly change rule 2 to say "2. No making threads just to ask questions or advertise, actually present substantial information if you're going to make a thread "

>The gist of rule 2 is you're supposed to make threads that present substantial information on a topic. Hell OP could have made an a thread if he wanted, and included the discord link, as long as it was an otherwise legitimate thread.


fedc85  No.268

Create a megathread for Fringe Discord links and Fringe Discord-related discussions. Whenever the thread fills up, allow a new one; same as the Q&A thread.

I believe that is a fair way of handling the matter without getting censor-happy.

I actually made a dedicated shill thread a while back that allowed any type of shilling including websites, products, services, irc/discords etc and would lock threads shilling and redirect them there but i forgot that we had auto prune enabled and the thread got auto pruned and i never got around to making it again. This lasted for about a month then the thread pruned. I still think this is the best course of action to still give people as many options as possible but also keep spam to a minimum. Lmk what you guys think.

I tried to find the shill thread in waybackmachine but i cant find it. Fortunately I have the thread saved that led me to make the shill thread, screen shots below (can't post images)


If I recall correctly the rules for the shill thread were only permanent invite links and only one post per service.

Still feels pointless when they could use the stickied questions thread to post their ads there instead and /fringemeta/ to discuss their discords.

0ee1dc  No.279

I'd prefer a board page for ads to be added and maybe a new rule that is more explicit about advertising or one of the pre-existing rules amended to specify.
