oh a mod
uhhh good luck
I expect the hell to rain down as this server becommes more known.
It may become popular.
ahh fuck it, youll probably need jesus, zeus and buddha once that happens
One of the other servers I'm on only has about 5 moderators for over a thousand users, but it's also a pretty quiet server overall
Probably cause of the userbase?
It varies. Some crowds are rowdy.
Some are peaceful.
People are different, case closed

Discord raids are a very common thing.
Hi @Timcast , got a few suggestions for you: 1. create an admin only channel for posting announcements/new videos etc. 2. create multiple voice channels and limit them to say, 20 users 3. add a suggestions board which people can post on for the moderators to see.
It will do some good to have a bit more hierarchy and some more channels for rules, announcements, and such.
the kekistan discord is quite a good example of a well ordered public server, with one text channel per topic etc.
how big is that one?
Also, sounds like something id be into.
several thousand users
I think I peered into the abyss
Waiting for it to blink
Personally I would recommend to have general chat for everybody to use and post. Though I would recommend that there would be some "higher-tier" threads which everybody can't access for a good reason, people who post quality threads.
yeah its not for everyone, but their structure is definitely worth imitating
Man the 10-minute time limit is pointless
look, Koris in the house
Did he give you Emoji powers
also, you guys need an faq/rules section asap
The first thing Kori wants is emojis lol.
I have some that won't be racy as well
So as to not offend tim pools audience
yes, keep the rules brief
No spamming, no doxxing, be reasonable.
Follow the discord policys so we all get along.
There are some example rules.
thats a good start
Well, add in shit that isnt common sense
Well actually, its probably not that common though if people have to be reminded sooo
ZERO'S WAIFU IS YUKIE
Common sense isn't common.
What have you done?!
>I have an anime avatar
you have to be explicit with your rules though, as ambiguous rules are designed to be broken. If you want to create a healthy discourse, you need objective rules that can easily be judged by moderators.
So shit like no hatespeech isnt a good rule since its subjective
No commie speech
thats what Tim's video today was saying
Nor is it good for someone who is explicitly free speech.
Yeah, a much better rule than "No hate speech" would be "No speech", because that's purely objective. You can't talk.
We need context.
Silence is golden I guess
But duct tape is silver
even better, tape them mouths shut, silence
Still, i will be here for the chaos, assuming that actually happens. Sorry for the debbie downer, but Ive seen it happen pleanty so best of luck to the mod and future mods
@balticnapo max raises a good point in that video, but you are missing the point. The point is not whether or not the rules are objective, the point is that we should be striving to get as close as possible to an objective set of rules, and since this is a discord server linked directly to Tim, it shouldn't be that hard to find a set of rules that we agree on the necessity of, because we are likely coming from a similar point of principle, i.e. something close to the principles of freedom of speech and free discussion. Keeping that in mind, that is what we should design the rules to protect.
Well, ill leave that to bruce and tim to discuss
also, a lot of the point of that video is that ais are now determining what people see online and catering specifically to their biases.
i.e. the ais are designed to cater for maximum engagement rather than maximum objectivity and truth.
which can lead to the exact opposite of this
Lol, well, Tim has done a really good job at explaining issues with some laws. I am sure hed have little issue with writing up rules for a small discord server.
Well, small as of now
yeah, but as with all things, its better to do some forward planning with some kind of vision, because that increases the likelihood of you achieving that vision, so I'm just asking the mods to think about what they want to see on this server and how they are going to achieve that.
I just want to make shitty puns.
Like when the inevitable chan raid happens, I want to yell out pools closed.
yeah but you aren't a mod so your goal may be different to the mods 😃
Every time I'm granted power on a forum/channel/whatever, the first thing I do is I ban myself
Because if I've got the power to ban people, why not start with the worst offender?
Im only an admin on one server, really small one with double digits (like 50). But I do fuck all there.
Back when I was in scanlation (on IRC) I was an operator on several channels and I was admin on one, but that was mostly because the group's leader let their channel lapse and I reclaimed it for them
I think the biggest channel I was in back then was 75 people
I'm aware that mee6 has a slowmode
I'm familiar with it
@WOODY Except for the part where you have to figure out what permissions to give the bot so that it can do everything for you
it will also help if and when a raid occurs
you just make a role for the bot
Yeah, most Discord bots have anti-raid utilities
its not too hard
The bot I use didn't have good documentation around what permissions it needed, so it took me a few days to get everything right
use a different bot then? theres plenty of bots around for all sorts of things.
I got one bot set up right. Why would I switch to another bot and go through another potential headache?
Emily and I are going to head to Montreal ina few days and then Detroit if you have any story suggestions
How bout a channel for that
this is the newsroom channel
Maybe you should make another text channel for general discussion so that the distinction is more apparent
Oh so shitposting is the general?
If you could shoot some drone Footage off Mont Royal that would be a great scenery for a video or an interview spot @Timcast
mountain right in the middle of the city
@Timcast I would be grateful if you would read my suggestions further up, some of them could be quite helpful.
dji drones are the worst
all of my batteries failed
I was talking about this with another member of the discord yesterday on voice chat but something to look into maybe in the future is what's going on with California and pot. And I don't mean like the debate, I mean how right now a lot of start-up bussinesses have just dumped a TON of money into pot production and might have to find a way to pull out all their resources really quick.
Yeah pot is a hot debate right now if you haven't done it already
Has nothing to do with Montreal though
I don't understand Sessions, obsession with pot
he said it had *basically* the same risk as heroin, which is just objectively false
Like on the freeway near me there are ads for edible products already for sale, apps that help you find pot stores and all of that; what legally is going to happen to those people if the feds crack down? Does creating an ad for pot products and posting it on a bilboard have a different sentance or punishment then being caught selling it?
because each state was allowed to have pass their own laws on marijuana
but now that, that has been repealed
businesses that were created before the repeal *might* still have legal standing with the federal government, def with the state governments
So in the overlap of this repeal, what happens to those who don't pull their products, or take down their publicly displayed ads on time?
but anything created after is def in jeopardy
Pretty sure if 32 states pass medicinal marijuana or decriminalization of it, there will be nothing the FED can do because the majority of people will outrage over it
If not already
I would assume criminal charges would be filed, but then again the Fed hasn't neccessarily come out and said they were going to remove state's right to have legalized pot
The repeal doesn't neccessarily entail that, unless new information has come out to which I was unaware
@Kori Tainaka if you look throughout the union in general, basically everyone wants pot to be legalized, for whatever reason Sessions seems to have a personal vendetta against it and wants it removed entirely
From what I've read, the Cole Memo was a "guidance document" and not an actual law. I don't know if that affects the outcome of its repeal
Can you get in trouble for advertising or producing a product in the grey time between it being legal and illegal? It's this weird middle ground that I think would be worth looking into; it would be cool to hear from the farmer who started to buy seeds or even plant crops and now has to consider burnning it all. Or the company that has a warehouse of now-illegal product that they can either try to store for a later date secretly or destroy it now to stay safe.
@Deleted User he's probably just one of those old people who thinks one marijuana joint is the equivalent to 20 years of smoking or something
more like taking heroin
idk why he believes this
Like there isn't an evidence that suggests marijuana and heroin are even close to being on the same page, especially since heroins only real medinical use is for numbing pain, but we have plenty of other stuff for that
so we obviously don't need it
vs marijuana which has been shown to drastically help and improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's disease for example
Well that and the fact that big pharma pushes opioids these days
I left just now and I come back to a discussion.
that's the other thing i don't understand, why the fuck is Sessions targetting marijuana when Trump literally announced the Fed would be going after the Opiod crisis like a week or two ago?
Anyway, Trump a better make a good decision on this, because this kind of thing can swing a reelection
Don't take away people's drugs
i dont think trump is going to get 2020
neither do I tbh
depends on the democrats
I do not think the Republicans will be able to secure 2018 either
the dems are in shambles too tho
I'm reading a lot of speculation that the repeal of the Cole Memo may push Congress to fully legalize marijuana
maybe its all over
the Media, although reknownly known as fake, has been nothing but negative
Lol new parties never work
I think it's all about the media and how they deal with it.
Maybe a real libertarian party instead of the pussies we have
Anyone up for starting the Timcast party? 😋
judging by the way the democrats have been going, they are going to get thrashed in 2018
There's too much money and vested interest in keeping the two party system in place
New Parties will never survive
they haven't learned anything from 2016
because if they do what they did for 2016 trump will hold 2020.
We can have Tim as our leader
Both are getting a little too confident
The best and only real time for new parties would've been the 2016 election
i dont want to be in charge of anything
Lack of a proper opponent caused them to lower their guards
<:ancap:294617629321199618> anarcho-capitalist party when
They got fat.
Now people are so distraught over everything, that if a centrist party came out, both sides would attempt to destroy it
neither does sargon but he is writing a manifesto lol
Cant force someone apparently
Well, good luck however. We will be watching
thb I don't think he's getting 2020 either, but I think he has "served" an important purpose; he's made both political parties question everything and re-evaluate themselves. He mad the dems realize they don't have a base they can abuse continuously, the reps release their "youth vote" doesn't see eye-to-eye with their stuck in the mud attitude.
where's my anarcho-nationalist people's socialist republics party of greater utah?
Who knows really? It was only around a year ago people said he had no chance.
Things can change drastically in a while.
Or maybe people got too confident there.
@Porcelain chips I'm not sure the Democrat or Republican parties as a whole are self-aware enough to realize that
none of it really matters because either way the US is regressing towards Plato's republic
@Porcelain chips Look at Democrats, everything they're doing currently points to them just waiting out Trump so they can get back to their agendas first in 2018 by repealing everything, and 2020 by "taking back" the Presidency
that's all they want
Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii is DNC but seems reasonable. What about her as Presidential Candidate?
Just to go back to their agendas
or is she not in the suitpants-afficionado circle?
Isnt it a narrative that theres a significant portion of people who are neither. Like the people who went Obama -> Bernie -> Trump?
And didnt vote Johnson cause wasted vote
Down to the T?
Tulsi Gabbard won't get the support from the party, they will go for someone like Andrew Cuomo instead
Huh... Okay then
Didnt expect that to be an answer
Just because it's a "narrative" doesn't mean it doesn't have some truth to it
Well, I kinda made it up from memory. I mean I have seen people admit that
well, a shame that good people cant get up by their own merits anymore 😉
Most just wanted change
And well, people like those 3 being candidates were a symtom, people wanted to be back in control
Rock the boat as people say
Honestly, I think what we need before another alternative party (because technically, the Libertarians *are* an alternative) is term limits and age limits for all political offices
Hillary really alienated me from the dems. I've always voted blue but then I got a letter a few weeks before the election; it was her "thanking" me for my support. I am on disability and have never donated to the party. My father and other family members have. They never got a thank you letter. I did. I am the only woman in the family; the ones who donated and supported her were hard-working men; this really broke me and made me distance myself from her entirely.
Pics of the letter with names blacked out?
Or not actually, I might be able to google it
so you saw this as pandering to you as part of a special interest group? well, thats pretty corporate huh
Or they didnt think she would have noticed
@GingaBomber I'll have to go find it. It's a generic letter but the rest of my family never recieved one.
Ah thanks anyway.
Do DM it to me, in case of all the comments flood it out
If you okay
Should clarify that I aint american, but I found the politics there fascinating
I'm a gay guy, and I voted for Trump because of numerous reasons, but what made me interested in politics in general was first #Gamergate, and second was in political conversations, people would speak on my behalf/imply that I was "obviously" a democrat because I was gay
Really pissed me off
I'm of the opinion that, with the exception of tyrannical parties, the outcome of elections is mostly irrelevant, increasingly so as time goes on. What really matters is the ideas and morals of the society. This is what really shapes the fate of a country.
And well... Kinda rooted for them the whole way, cause if it aint the US being No1 in military, it will be either Russia or China
And I dont trust either. So well, lesser evils and all that
Well, it always boils down to the people really.
culture comes from principles
Fascinating actually, GG isnt something I see discussed outside KIA in a possitive light
I mean, i kinda got jaded with the media after that
@WOODY I disagree, policies are vastly more important, it is the morality of wanting to help others that has led us directly into this finacial crisis which our generation will be paying off for our entire lives, as well as our children's lives.
Found Pool after that. Well, went after alternative news
I mean, man... The journey.
@GingaBomber You find American politics interesting? I prefer satire based on American politics:
The Ephebians believed that every man should have the vote. Every five years someone was elected to be Tyrant, provided he could prove that he was honest, intelligent, sensible, and trustworthy. Immediately after he was elected, of course, it was obvious to everyone that he was a criminal madman and totally out of touch with the view of the ordinary philosopher in the streets looking for a towel. And then five years later they elected another one just like him, and really it was amazing how intelligent people kept on making the same mistakes.
- Terry Pratchett, *Small Gods*
I think American politics is so dynamic because of sort of the frontier history; it's a young country that has had to give the middle finger and fight a lot. It had to go from 3rd world to first world in 200 years. In the late 1800s half of the country was still living in a way that is comparible now to a lot of developing countries, while the other half was 1st world and both ends were trying to create enough infelstructure to have everything even across the board.
Oh god, I need more clips, cause that ones so true
Well, does not help that the people we want in politics dont want to be in it
You get the power hungry and the greedy, since they are the ones with the initiative to run for it
@Deleted User are you suggesting that the only moral choices are to help others? I recently read Atlas Shrugged, and the objectivists would argue that altruism is actually immoral.
And well, people dont like to be forced into a duty they did not wish for
@WOODY I would say that helping others in of itself is a virtuous thing to do that lines up with Western Values, but Democrats and the left has taken it to an extreme, slowly and progressively in the last 50 years
What if say it was a difference in empathy then?
Or to whom the altruism was directed against?
Like the Repubs being American citizens, especially the vets and the homeless, while to the Dems, minorities
@Deleted User I would agree that it aligns with Western values, but disagree that it is virtuous to sacrifice your own values and happiness for others. The democrats are merely taking this principle towards it's logical conclusion. Just as the Socialists in Russia did.
