I'd have to ask for a possibility of moderators separating one category with two words, into two different categories that are separate from each other. Although I agree with Mania here, I also think that a moderator should be able to review aspects being put up before they are put up, to see if they are okay. If they confirm them then that would mean the aspect would be added. If they didn't, then the person couldn't put up the aspect or change the aspect by wording it differently, or providing a description about it, as I have noticed a few people have done already.

But, on to the topic at hand. I am a fan of fantasy, but I also like science fiction. The reason I didn't pick it as a like on my bio is because I already have 'fantasy' under my likes, and 'science fiction'. I didn't see much point of picking both fantasy and science fiction because they were already likes on my list.

For example, on to the first paragraphs topic, I noticed that one of the options was Violence, Most republicans. These topics have nothing to do with each other, yet they are grouped together for some reason. I don't really see the point in mashing two different aspects together because the two topics would be fine standing alone. If you want to put two aspects together, then they at least have to be similiar to one another. I know what I'm saying will probably be ignored, but I felt like speaking my mind here on some thoughts I had about 'aspects' in general.

Uh, I'd like to make a kind request to the people who have this Interest to add themselves to both the Fantasy and Science Fiction Interests: ∞ Fig Hunter ∞ ∞ Fig Hunter ∞

Pseudo recently added a rule about aspects needing to be kept as clean as a community as large as this could, and he even mentioned this particular interest. :P

Quote:
Please think carefully about the values that you enter, and don't add frivolous ones. Check your spelling, keep one interest per box *(so 'Fantasy' and 'Sci-fi' would be two separate interests, rather than 'Fantasy & Sci-fi' or 'Fantasy, Sci-fi' as one single one)*.


Uh, perhaps I'm pushing it here, but I would like to request other people to, when they notice an inane or statistically useless Aspect (Religion, Interest, Word, Race), ask the person to kindly change it. I know we've got mods now, but I bet regular users could also contribute to this site like this! :D (Perhaps some people would be more receptive to peers than authorities too)

Hmm, what happens if people simply *don't* follow that request? :s

If people do not follow the request, and a moderator has tried his or her best to convince the other person to change it with no results, then an Infraction would have to be given to the creator/holder of the Aspect. (These Infractions would not be handed out like candy, however. A mod should fist ask politely why they added such an Interest. If the reaction is not good enough, they'd have to ask them to remove it politely, if they still get no reply, they'd have to 'bring out the big guns' and remind the person they are capable of giving Infractions. Should they still not reply, or give a reply that shows poor attitude, then an Infraction would be given.)

It's also likely that their troublesome Aspects are removed by force.

If they add it back afterwards, then they would get even more Infractions.

EDIT: Ooh, I thought you were talking about matters in general, not just this one... Anyway, my words were more about people who make multiple *new* Interests... o.o Still, things like these would be nicest if they were avoided, I doubt there's much need for infractions here, unless the person shows a really poor attitude.

Would you give an infraction to Firequill if she doesn't take it out?! What if it simply keeps slipping peoples' minds? Can you really control how many interests get posted? There's already a whole bunch now with just over a hundred members. Imagine how many there'd be for a thousand or so. o.o;;

I'm sure mods can remove aspects themselves (or at least soon), the point of this was to ask them to do it themselves, prevention is better than cure and such. If they refuse and keep remaking it, it is arrogant defiance of the rules, which means death, but if they had no bad intentions then it's better to tell them so they don't make the mistake again.

EDIT: Who's going to delete these comments now? :D

EDITEDIT: I'm sure Pseudo can just move it to a blog post or something, that'd make the most sense...

Ah, another thing that struck me: Where would our comments go once this aspect is deleted? Would they vanish as well? What of any ratings that we receive from them?

Aspects with comments wouldn't be deletable, I bet, just like they're currently not removed by the system when they've got no followers, but do have comments.

...I now feel stupid about commenting here, since this is now never going to get removed. Stupid β Mania, stupid! D:

That is just faulty system-making on the part of Pseudo, if you can't delete this aspect just because there are comments here...

There are already people who adhere to this Aspect and you were correct in assessing that it's much more efficient to do it here one-time, rather than PMing each user separately. But really, how do you even try to manage the hundreds of aspects here? How can you spot similar terms like "intelligence" and "smartness" when they're not close to each other on the alphabet that you'll likely forget, or not even know which one to keep or delete [I know they mean different things, but I just used them to demonstrate]?

And to think, Pseudo wants to release the new site already... >.>

Yes! >:D Then A β Pseudolonewolf will be all mine! :D

As unlikely as the situation would be (I dare say you're trying to come up with a situation that would require Mods to deviate from the usual approach here), I think I would ask A β Pseudolonewolf to take care of this situation, since I think he would do a much better job at talking things like this over with her, rather than me.

I think that cases in which Mods show unruly behaviour should in general be dealt with by A β Pseudolonewolf, since he is the one who appointed these mods and should reconsider their position as a mod.

EDIT: Again, this seems like another very unlikely scenario... Should they do so, then I guess I'll try to contact them some times. If they reply saying they'll take it away later, then I guess I could just as much take it down myself, since they're showing that they want it down, should they not reply at all, I'll take it down too. If they feel the need to add it again, I'll probably take it off and give him/her an infraction, since it should be clear it's not meant to be there.

Also, it's pretty impossible, yes, but we can still try to improve it a little.

(BUT WHAT IF [Situation you hardly ever see]?!?! D:)

I don't think "people not reading the rules before the go do stuff" isn't such an unlikely thing, even on here. I don't think people who simply "can't be bothered" is impossible either. In which case, you'd likely be left to delete the aspects yourself. But if that happens for new users who don't yet know how the system works, they may add it again, not understanding why it was deleted. Would they then deserve infractions if they add it again, given such lack of information?
