Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Call for More Hosts in this Group

I've had one other person ask to be a host, but that person was on the same side of the Creative Speculation aisle as me. I feel very strongly that the next host should be someone on the other side.

This is only temporary, until DU3 goes live. It would be very helpful, I'm sure, to test out different viewpoints serving as hosts together.

A reminder of your superpowers as a group host (with some commentary and emphasis in italics added by me):

Lock thread (Reason: Violates this forum's Statement of Purpose)
Locks a thread when the OP is not on-topic for the group. An automatic notification will be dropped into the OP explaining why the thread was locked. The thread can only be unlocked by the Host who locked it. (In other words, even as the top ranking Host, I can't unlock what you lock.)

Lock thread (Reason not specified)
Locks a thread for an unspecified reason. An automatic notification will be dropped into the OP, but no reason for the lock will be provided. The thread can only be unlocked by the Host who locked it. (See above parenthetical.)

Pin & lock thread
Pins a thread to the top of the group and simultaneously locks it. An automatic notification will be dropped into the OP, but no reason for the lock will be provided. The thread can be unpinned by any Host, but can only be unlocked by the Host who locked it.

Pin thread
Pins a thread to the top of the group, where it will remain until it is unpinned. The thread can be unpinned by any Host.

Block a member from the group
Blocks a member from posting in the group. The member will be automatically notified by DU Mail. Members can be unblocked by any Host. (I have not blocked anyone from this group yet because I'm the only host. I thought about testing the software on one person, but reconsidered for this reason and that it might be taken the wrong way.)

Make a member a Host of the group
Creates a new group Host. The selected member will be automatically notified by DU Mail. Members can only be removed as a Host by Hosts who are listed above them in the heirarchy (sic). (And in the context of this group, such an action would be stink to high heaven and should only be done with CLEAR, UNMISTAKABLE EVIDENCE of unsuitability.)

Remove a Host of the group
Removes a Host. Hosts can only remove Hosts who are listed below them in the heirarchy(sic) (See above parenthetical.)

I'm going to cross-post this in Help & Meta-discussion.

1. Two new hosts:

First, redqueen.

Then, SidDithers.

You both have all the powers of a host, which means you can appoint hosts as you see fit.
