I don't believe that is true at all.(with respect to my ban)The members that have opted into discuss politics and have been doing so without personal attacks seem to be doing ok so I think we can keep it that way for the time being. A few bad eggs, not surprisingly, got themselves banned. Obviously, those that were effected because they only "tried" to self-moderate but still resorted to personal attacks (on other Georgia Tech fans by the way), will unfortunately not have much of a voice when it comes to whether or not political topics can be discussed in all forums. If that time ever comes, the mods will discuss internally and make the decision.
I hope that makes it more clear.
You are welcome to believe whatever narrative you want to believe. That's absolutely ok. All I'll say is I trust the mods significantly more than anyone that earned themselves a ban from the politics forum so if you can trust the other mods then that'll have to be our middle ground.That’s not completely true.
A month ago roughly, I was banned from the political forum for repeatedly telling another member to stop harassing me and trying to start a fight. (There was no cursing or personal attacks in the exchange.). A few weeks ago, when discussing the NASCAR rope topic in the general lounge, I mentioned a huge news story being ignored because they didn’t create clickbait like the NASCAR story did - I got an email from you saying you wanted to ban me permanently from the lounge because part of my post referred to a major news story containing political themes in your opinion. I guess the other Mods voted against you again - that’s happened multiple times according to what you’ve told me. IIWII.
Everyone runs the same software so...It looks very similar to the North Korean run GT site but somehow still better. Must be the company we keep.
I don't have a narrative. I'm quoting your own words in your messages to me. Your disposition is making my point for me. Multiple times you said the other Mods came to my defense. Most recently was June 25th when you told me you wanted to have me permanently banned from the entire Lounge and had the Mods vote on it.

no, my point was that I have zero issue with how things are moderated here only that the look is now similar. We keep better company here.Everyone runs the same software so...
Which reminds me, anyone have a problem with how things are moderated here, you can start your own and talk about whatever you want there. The software is called xenforo and it's well developed, I really like it.
Kg's crystal balls are pristine. They're the best crystal balls you've ever seen.
I’m not sure what T was talking about specifically, but the only problem I have is that it is a little more difficult to go from one section of threads back to the main page. The old site had different tabs for each section of threads you were currently in, and you could click through any of those “active” sections at once.Moved this over to the 'New Site' thread in the Lounge.
Can you be more specific about what you're trying to do and what device you are using?
Thought you explained it well. I always learn best from visuals so I'm posting a screenshot.I’m not sure what T was talking about specifically, but the only problem I have is that it is a little more difficult to go from one section of threads back to the main page. The old site had different tabs for each section of threads you were currently in, and you could click through any of those “active” sections at once.
Just for example, while viewing this thread on the old site, you could get to the Swarm Lounge page, and the General Topics page at any time, and now you can only get back to the Lounge.
I’ve found it’s more frustrating in threads that are multiple sections deep, specifically in recruiting threads. Instead of being able to go back immediately to “Georgia Tech Football” from MJ Morris’ thread, you have to go back through the 2022 section, then back to the general recruiting section, then back to the general football section.
It’s only 2 extra clicks, and it’s definitely a 1st world problem, but it’s the only con I have with the new look. Everything else is great!
Word is that dragging & dropping GIFs work. Not being able to cut and paste GIFs is a known issue with the software.
Thanks for the screenshot, definitely helps and agree the breadcrumbs being truncated is usability issue for mobile. I think this can be fixed, it just won't look as neat on mobile but I think it's still needed; will try to fix this later tonight.
