      We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.

    Refrain from contacting snowflakes, it is against site rules.

    It's really not a matter of hiding "controversial" posts, that's not something I really care at all about. The flagging happened a few days ago, I've been slowly going back through her HUNDREDS of posts, trying to start with threads, it's really annoying to deal with stuff like that.
    I've had a couple of users come to me with concerns along those lines. I have made a few exceptions, but I haven't really had many people ask for that? I'm not super rigid or unreasonable, I'm pretty open with to whatever, within reason as long as I'm comunicated with. The intention behind the rule is to keep people from making a few accounts and posting from them to influence board culture. Some people have made 10+ accounts, that kind of behavior is more what I target. If anyone wants a second account because they've been compromised, they can get in touch with me, I don't think I've ever turned anyone down for that.

    Shadow's a friend who's mostly here to help me with tech work, like Rhea. They have temp admin access so they can help with the back end coding. 
    Biscuit asked to have her account banned, Shadow (being new and not really being used to the mod console) accidentally flagged all her posts as spam, I'm trying to reinstate important ones like first posts in threads. 

    If a mod asks to start with a clean account though it's a little bit of a different matter. Sometimes users make posts with personally identifying information; PULL mods / admins have been targeted before so it's for their own safety. If users want to remove personally identifying info they can edit their posts.

    I've always been pretty against adding ads to the site just because they're clunky and ugly and I'd sacrifice the cost to myself for the increased user experience, honestly.

    I'm adding another screenshot just for full context,

    I've been running the site for nearly four years. Please, let's not go on a holy crusade against me, I've put a lot of work in.
    I'm sorry, Pusheen, for glazing over your family member, as we just talked about in DMs. I completely missed it and when I came back with "blugh" I just came back to talk after you made a post talking about me on PULL. That'd never be an appropriate response to what you said. However, I don't think that specific drama is really appropriate here, this didn't need to become a public matter over a private issue. 
    Around something like September? October? I dropped the ball for a few months and wasn't around at all, Pusheen basically fielded everything. I'm really sorry that caused trouble, I should have looked for more mods, been more communicative, literally anything, there's not much excuse, I was emotionally exhausted. Pusheen made a post bashing me, I talked to her about it and thought we talked through everything.
    She gathered a group of some users to develop a new site, I said I'd be fine with that and would give them whatever info they needed.
    I never asked for free work or rushed anyone, I was approached with their plans of making their own offshoot and I was fine with that, I only asked for sporadic updates so I'd know for how much longer I'd be paying the exorbitant hosting bill or if I'd have to start looking for new staff for my forum in the meantime. I offered all the help I could think of, including the "official" domain so they could get all of our traffic directed to their new site and make the most of it, while leaving them alone about any decisions and choices because I knew that wasn't my place.
    I think there was some understandable, directed vitriol against me in that group, so I think everything I've said to any of those team members has been nitpicked by all of them. My mod who helps with a lot of tech work, Rhea, offered to set up the entire forum for them, ready to launch, with hosting and tech support and hand it over for them to do with as they please, they turned that down. 
    Basically, I waited for some time, they kept working on the site. I haven't stifled any of their progress and offered to give them whatever they wanted, I've pretty much only waited. I don't think this came off as rushing anyone or asking for free work. No one ever really approached me directly about things, everything has been weird and through the grapevine.

    Unlocking the thread, sorry, Shadow's a new mod & we just talked over this, I have no intention of locking down discussion on this forum. 
    However, this is not really the place to bicker about AA. Respectful discussion is okay. Please report racism. 
    Citing rule 8 here: 
    Except for the off-topic discussion boards, do not bring up general controversial issues in threads.
    Don’t talk about politics, religion, race, or social issues except in the off-topic boards. These just derail threads.
     
    Please stay on topic.

    I was sent personal identifying documents belonging to Julia's father. Kojack can weigh in if he'd like on what type of documentation he sent me, I don't want to go back on the trust of sources who identify themselves to me. I don't think Julia would have access to these.

    I've received documentation from Kojak that appears to confirm his identity as Julia's father.

  9. Nyx added a post in a topic @ Mods? Nyx? Anyone?   

    I've been privately messaging users who've been upstanding PULL users asking if they'd like to interview. I might make a category under "moderators" who can just approve new posts and have fewer permissions.
    I wasn't joking. If there's a user you think would be a great mod, I'm happy to hear it. In organizations, internal references are highly valued for a reason.
    Something that's an issue in finding a good moderator is finding someone who has a proper balance of maturity and enthusiasm. A lot of people seem to apply because they want to mold the site into their vision of what the community will be, which goes against my community philosophy. PULL grows in its own, natural way--I'm not looking for power-hungry mods to flex over the community. Moderators need to be trustworthy and respectful of user privacy. I have to be really careful in selection. I mostly look for mods with previous moderation experience, a good attitude, thick skin, and potentially some technical background. My favorite mods have been those who just want to see the site flourish, and have optimal user experience in mind.
    I ask in the discord on and off about user feedback. I'd like to do another sitewide survey soon asking for user feedback.

    We don't ban because of accidental double-posting. If this happens to you, delete your cookies and the issue should resolve.

  11. Nyx added a post in a topic @ Mods? Nyx? Anyone?   

    Rhea has been helping massively with coding the back end of the site and making sure the software we're using is still running. Let's not jump to conclusions, there's a lot that's going on behind the scenes that users don't see.
    We can't delete user accounts because it would corrupt the board software, and we get multiple requests on a daily basis for us to ban people from the forum because they can't stay away. It adds to our workload, and PULL isn't some kind of drug. If you have some actual criticism, we're always happy to hear it.
    If you have any good nominations, let me know! I've gone through the mod applications at this point.  
     
    If a mod says ever something inappropriate to you, kindly forward it to me. I'm not quite sure what you're referring to here. Let's be constructive here and not aggressive, we work hard on this forum.

  14. Nyx added a post in a topic Unpopular opinions   

    Hi all! 
    Just wanted to put forward that debate is absolutely welcome here. I love seeing cited analysis & good arguments. PULL is here to be a place of free speech and discussion. If you post in a thread for unpopular opinions, you know you might ruffle feathers, so discussion is expected and mods won't interfere unless it gets out of hand.
    So, please make sure to keep from personal attacks and *taking* things as personal attacks, that's where we draw a line. We're all here to have a good time, please keep it civil!

    PULL Restructuring
    As mentioned in a recent announcement, we're restructuring! We know change isn't always welcome, but PULL has grown exponentially since we started and we need to adapt to that. We're adding a few categories to make it easier for our users to follow the topics they're interested in and discover similar ones. 
    We've narrowed it down to the following:
    - an Asia-centric forum for weeaboos, koreaboos, people pretending to be asian, jvloggers/kvloggers
    - Youtubers, with Beauty Gurus being their own subsection
    - Cosplay personalities
    - Gaming/Twitch personalities
    - Models/Lifestyle (Instagrammers and other "selfie-famous" people that don't belong to a specific subculture)
    - Art / Music
    Massive topics will receive their own subforum so we can allow for a broader spectrum of conversation without cluttering the main discussion.
    Hard-to-categorize snowflakes will be sorted into the forum most relevant to their notoriety, and we will use a tagging system so you can see all topics under a certain tag regardless of which forum they're in. To make it even easier for you to keep track of your favorite discussions, you can create your own topic list with just the threads you want to see. Simply click the "Follow This" button on the top right of the topic you're viewing and bookmark your personal overview: https://prettyuglylittleliar.net/followed/
    We will start to move topics within the next few days, until then please take the opportunity to leave your feedback.
