    Checkboxes for listing threads on several forums?

    For example, Houzz members can list their posts on up to 3 forums, as you can see here: https://www.houzz.com/discussions That way there's more of a cross-section of people who might answer any particular thread. Rather than with an exclusive interest in, say. Lighting or Design. Look, I'm not...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Wedgar OK by me, I hope not to post on this thread anymore barring unforeseen further responses. So as far as I'm concerned, consider this thread unofficially closed.

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Boy, that troll (whoever he is) must be real hungry by now! :cry:

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    beerForo, I could care less, since "fairness" is weighted in favor of my suggestion (as an add-on at least). So just because a few people weren't so enthusiastic about it, doesn't mean it isn't meritorious. It's just the odds on a forum visited by Admins./mod's who are satisfied with their...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Alan_SP, thanks again so very much for clarifying! ☺️ It's kind of you, given it's a 2nd language. And that "autor" pun is cute! Meanwhile, I'm pleading with the rest of you, I don't mean for this thread to turn into four pages long, the way that aforesaid loony health-thread was. So please...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Taylor you took the words out of my mouth. As you see in my demo, I left "Report" because obviously you'd want to be enabled to report trolls. Likewise, if there's a spam cleaner, that would also remain part of the status quo. I've had my idea for a long time (actually Amazon's), but what...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Alan_SP, you have a point. I should remember to stick to the term "fairness" or maybe you can offer a suggestion? Also thanks for posting your screenshot! Some further followups are: Do any of the usergroups within your screenshot represent registered members? Or are the usergroups on your...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    A key followup I have is in order to determine objectivity is: Are all of you either board owner, or moderator, or administrator (or more than one of these)? As I stated elsewhere, Xerox was rejected numerous times, which was zero proof their idea wasn't sound. By the same token, given my own...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Uh, forgive me for venting prior to responding. While I thank all of you for weighing in, i'm getting the feeling that many forum owners don't much care if their forums are run less than democratically. So consider my suggestion as an appeal to those who truly are attracted to the idea of a...

    Has xenForo thought of this democratic form of spam-moderation

    OK, i re-read this thread, and must first emphasize that Kirby and FTL misread me. Nowhere did i speak of "silencing" or "being hidden". Rather, I absolutely emphasized the ability for any member to Re-Visibilize anyone else's post on their private connections, as per the precedent which was...

    Proposal - fair method of spam moderation

    Firstly note, I'm including attachments with red arrows for clarification of below proposal. I'm not saying my attachments precisely correlate to my below text, but it's the same idea. Proposal: Seems that for eons, forum software has never been set-up to root-out those unfair authoritarians...

    Has xenForo thought of this democratic form of spam-moderation

    BeerForo, thanks for your suggestion to post on the Suggestions forum, and I hope to do so soon. I actually didn't expand fully on my above idea, which would have addressed some of the above concerns. I was going to, but then I got a notice stating that I was "banned". The reason stated was...

    Has xenForo thought of this democratic form of spam-moderation

    Why not? (see, regardless what level Mr Lucky is, it's precisely due to replies such as this, that i created my OP). I'd prefer Mr Lucky's post to be Invisiblized for practical purposes, to keep this thread logical and readable. But thanks so much for helping me prove my point via your...

    Has xenForo thought of this democratic form of spam-moderation

    To give a precedent: Remember how (prior to its discontinuance which brought a halt to educational-exchange of info), Amazon product-review commenters had the option to vote as follows? "Do you think this comment adds to discussion?" Yes/No Then - if a certain # of members clicked "No" - that...
