Regarding Freeforall Threads
As the proceedures stand now, should Freeforall topics be submitted to PNT or may they be directly initiated in FFA? Also my understanding is that Coffee Shop threads may be directly initiated by members but preferably submitted to PNT. Is that correct?

Re: Merriam-Webster?
I like online dictionaries, but not in discussions with creationists, because they'll often focus on the wrong term and use that to say "see, it can mean anything".. Which is an annoying starting point in a discussion.
Hi Zucadragon. Perhaps this would be a suitable thread topic for you to propose so as to debate your points. Creationists may regard definitions alternative to standard definitions as skewed to ideology preferred by evolutionists.

Due to the lack of vegetation, it doesn't appear to be very old.

Re: Ratings Still Suck
GM writes:
After all, they're under enough pressure just being wrong about everything. I know that if I was on a board where every creationist had a rating from 7 - 10 whilst every evolutionist languished on a 1 - 3 rating....
The bottom line, Granny, is that ratings reflect that the majority on creationist boards figure evolutionists are just being wrong about everything and vise versa for the majority on evolutionist boards.
A message may be well constructed grammatically and well articulated, yet so illogical and senseless that a negative rating is deserved, regardless of ideology. Of course, that gets back to what is regarded as illogical and senseless.
I welcome a low rating, having the minority ideological views on about everything here at EvC. I would be concerned if opinions would be highly rated by the majority of folks having much different views than those I ascribe to.
For that reason, ratings are rarely objective.

Re: Member Ratings
herebedragons writes:
Just a quick suggestion regarding the rating system. I have noticed that some people just go down the posts in a thread and, (or at least it appears) they cheer those posts they agree with and jeer those they disagree with regardless of quality of content. It ends up that creationists have a low score and evolutionists have a high score. I am sure that is not what you intend for the rating system.
What I suggest is only being able to rate a post that you actively participate in. In other words, unless you respond to a post or a post is a response to you, you can not rate it. This may help the ratings to better reflect the quality of a member's posts.
Perhaps a "like" button in addition to the rating button would allow non-participants to acknowledge a good reply without actually participating, but it would not affect the member rating.
Just a thought
The problem with that is that you limit the raters to the same-oles, some of who are trollish. It should be open to all members.
Perhaps it would be good if there was some way for guests to rate. There would have to be a way to eliminate members not logged in.

Re: Member Ratings. what about comment rating?
Coyote writes:
I suggested long ago three ratings:
Post of the day
Post of the week
Post of the month
That way there are no negative ratings, just good, better and best.
The suggestion was ignored of course...
Likely the reason it was ignored is that it wouldn't fix the problem. Take a survey of monthly POMs. How many favor minority members?

I think we would see more "equal" ratings if we just allowed creationist members free range to post whatever BS they wanted.
What's good for the gander is good for the goose. What is regarded a BS to evolutionists will always be regarded as such to the majority of evolutionists on this highly biased cite.
BS fertilizes and BS contaminates, depending on the grounds upon which it is spread.

Re: Helpful Side Note
Actually it will end up referring to the wrong message. What he wants to say is Message 252, not Message 1. Message 1 takes the message number, while Message 1 takes the message ID, which is the gray number at the top of the message next to "Message x of y"..
Message numbers are unique in a thread and are assigned in sequence beginning at 1 at the beginning of the thread. Once assigned message numbers do not change. This means that deleting message 10 doesn't cause message 11 to become message 10. Message 11 will always be message 11, no matter how many earlier messages are deleted.
Message IDs are unique across the whole forum, beginning at 1 and extending into the six hundred thousands.
Thanks, Admin. I'm a slow but avid learner, ever searching out what is true, useful and advantageous, ever learning and never having arrived to the un-achievable goal of perfection.
