• Friendly reminder: The politics section is a place where a lot of differing opinions are raised. You may not like what you read here but it is someone's opinion.

So you are made boss of the politics section. What rules do you enact, repeal or change?

I would post a survey detailing various controversial political stances.
After submitted, it's locked to the user account.

Once the survey is completed, the user can only post arguments for the opposing stance (devil's advocate).

I imagine many people would learn something about their own beliefs and everyone else would write political satire.
What if expressing the opposing stance would get you banned?

I never knew this post existed, and it is quite old already.

Anyway, as a boss I wouldn't change anything. Sometimes there are messages like "you're too dumb to understand" or something on those lines. Usually are the same people doing that (there is a mod among then), but really I don't know witch measure would be good for that because It is annoying and counter productive, but it is not something big enough to ban or warn people.

Bring discussions here and to EoF from the gaming sections is something good too, but it is already being done, so nothing to say about that.

does anyone know what the "ignore" button on certain members profiles do?

will it prevent me from seeing threads made by that member, comments by that member, etc?
or is it a useless feature?

mainly interested in using this feature for some of the politcally charged members.
Im here for videos games and immergent tech /mods not to read opinions, speculations, and consipracy theories.

I think it collapses all their posts (you can choose to look at them) and also prevents DMs.
Ignore me and find out lol
