But if someone posts under their own recognizable identity, then they are no different from any user of this board, and accountable only to the same standards that are applied to every user of this board.

A = add

(b) i have a preference for letting divisions grow organically, which points to fewer more loosely defined areas rather than more tightly defined areas. if you look at the old statistics, i think you'll see that there was a very uneven distribution between the different areas - even more so before the last restructuring. that indicates to me that the partitions as envisioned by the admins were not reflective of how the community ended up using the board.

Having the subfora listed makes the page completely unattractive and uninviting. i still favor trey's mockup for it's simplicity and for it's ability to allow the community to grow organically.
While I think that it's important for the newbies to have a clear path upon their entrance, part of learning ones way around comes from getting lost a few times. Stumbling upon things. My perspective is that we go with trey's, and encourage the newbies to look around first , discover, figure things out slowly, instead of pushing them toward one specific place right off the bat. I think that shoving them in the q&a direction has a tendency to make them post without getting a feel for the place, or to post a repeat question without looking around for the answer first. (as a side note, having the title Greeter's Station seems to inflect the sort of self-reliance that I'd like to see more of, specifically in the newbies. it seems to say "come on in, take stock of your surroundings, and find your own way", as opposed to a Start Here title, which already infers that we'll show you the way.)
You know, you're absolutely right. My apologies to Isotopia, who is free to be any way they want without being associated with an official role. It's just common knowledge (I think, I mean, c'mon, even *I* know Wink ) that Isotopia = Badger = Ranger.
This leads to no accountability. Someone can say something, incite anger, and then go back, change their post and claim they never did it. Sure, you can quote them, but nothing stops you from editing a quote to make it appear someone said something they did not (exacerbating the problem). So, we decided, long ago, that editing was mostly for good, but its ability to be used for evil outweighed the good.
