Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Dec 29, 2011, 03:32 PM

There doesn't seem to be much for a host of this group to do. [View all]

Statement of Purpose

Discuss conspiracy theories and other highly-speculative topics. Free-thinkers and skeptics are both welcome. When posting, please be mindful of the DU Terms of Service.

Hosts

Group Hosts are assigned either by the DU Administrators, or by other Hosts of that group. Group Hosts have the following abilities: 1) They can lock threads which they believe violate the group's stated purpose; 2) they can pin threads to the top of the group; 3) they may completely block out members whom they believe are not adhering to the group's purpose; 4) they may add other members as group Hosts; and 5) they may remove any Host that became a Host after they did (and who is listed below their name on the list below).


So the main substance of the host duty is to enforce the group's stated purpose by locking threads and/or completely blocking members that don't adhere to it. But the stated purpose is so broad that I don't see how this will come up that often.

Something can't apparently be deemed too far out or crazy to fit the stated purpose since it includes "to discuss ... highly-speculative topics" and "conspiracy theories".

So I guess a host could lock a thread or block a member for not being speculative enough or for being too grounded in the real world. Other than that, what is there for them to do?

Well, there is this: they can add and remove each other. So far is that the full sum of it?
