Good evening. I've still not been able to upload any images to my profile using the Android app....

How to Ruin Your Relationship

Has anyone noticed an increase in troll activities lately? What can be done about this? I saw ...
Admin comments on Feb 5, 2018:
We have a new person skimming posts and looking for trolls. How about post some links to questions with troll-ish behavior and we'll review? Remember, you can link to posts by putting q: then the post num (see the number 21323 in this URL) in your comments.
Following posts we commented on?
Admin comments on Feb 5, 2018:
Sure! Just mark if a "favorite" (gold star)
How do I block the troll?
Admin comments on Feb 5, 2018:
If a member is being annoying, you can just block them by clicking the “Block” link on their profile page. If you do that, you won’t see any of their posts and they won’t see yours. We will also keep an eye on the member to see if further action should be taken. We rely on our members to help keep discussions civil. Thanks! You can see who you blicked byclicking on the "gear" icon on the top of every page, then click the "Blocked" tab. You can unblock someone by going back to their profile page and clicking "unblock". Thanks for the question! You can read more help tips on the FAQ page (see link at the bottom of every page).

Does this site have plans to create an app?
Admin comments on Feb 3, 2018:
We are working on the app and hopefully will release it soon.
Uploading photos
Admin comments on Feb 2, 2018:
Here's the steps to upload a photo: 1. Go to the main home page and click "Upload photo" link. 2. Click on the text "Tap here" and select a photo from your computer or phone (note: if you're on a computer, you can also drag and drop a photo from your computer). 3. Once the photo is uploaded, you can crop and rotate if needed. Thanks for the question! You can read more help tips on the FAQ page (see link at the bottom of every page).

I'll make a post tomorrow about ways we are going to reduce repeated common posts. :)
So long, and thanks for all the fish :) I enjoyed visiting this site when it had relatively-few ...
Admin comments on Feb 2, 2018:
Hey, I'm really sorry to hear that the site experience has changed for you. I agree that as we grow, the velocity of posts increases and it is harder to form relationships with other members. We are working on some projects to address this. The first one will be "groups" where members can discuss specific topics. The plan is to have them live sometime next week. Happy to hear your ideas on how we can improve the site! :) We don't need to build a hyperspace byway here...
Does anyone know if there is an app for this site and where do I go to shut off email notifications?...
Admin comments on Feb 2, 2018:
The app is in final debugging/testing and hopefully out very very soon. You can adjust notifications under account / settings (gear icon).
What is a level?
Admin comments on Feb 1, 2018:
There are lots of ways for you to earn points so your level will increase. Take a look at the "Levels" page at http://agnostic.com/levels for more details. The points/level system is just a way to help us reward active members by giving more access and perks to members as they increase their level. Don't get too hung up on the points/levels as they are mostly just a way for us to keep scammers away. Thanks for the question! You can read more on the FAQ page (see link at the bottom of every page).

How do you TAG a member?

Lightsaber Science... [youtube.com]
Admin comments on Jan 28, 2018:
The error in his logic is that he's assuming the width of the energy beam as what we see as visual light that is radiating from it. It is much more likely that a real light saber would use a beam 1000x+ less wide than what you see. This would just be enough to vaporize a tiny fraction thin line of flesh and produce a cauterized effect. Just sayin'.

After some deliberation, we decided to put the date on the post search results. Our original intention was to let the posts be "timeless" but since the site is more active than what it appears, we relented and put them in the listing rows.

Admin comments on Jan 19, 2018:
Wow, what a good discussion... makes me hesitant to make changes though. I'm leaning towards something more descriptive such as: "Agnostic.com is a non-profit community for atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, skeptics and others happy without religion" Boring but clear and informative.
Discussion about the latest site footer It reads "Agnostic.com is a non-profit organization ...
Admin comments on Jan 18, 2018:
I always enjoy your feedback as it gets me to step back from coding/etc and think big picture. I recently attended an Atheist meetup where they presented some the PEW research findings that showed atheists and agnostics are 3% and 4% of the US population respectively (see http://www.pewforum.org/religious-landscape-study/ ). The follow up questions devolved into some squabble over definitions and I was just thinking "Hey, what's the benefit of labels when it just divides us". Our goal here is make non/un-believers feel welcome and to energize the community to be more bold and visible. I would be happy to work with someone (group?) to rework our messaging. What would you suggest for a footer/tagline?
Is anyone else finding it hard to keep up with discussions on this site? I am a bit overwhelmed and ...
Admin comments on Jan 18, 2018:
I've been working on a way to group tags better... you see it (in development) at http://agnostic.com/themes but I need help coming up with themes and picking top tags for each. I'll make a post to crowd source it (I'm swamped!)

Admin comments on Jan 18, 2018:
Haha, yeah. But seriously, all you're doing it getting notified when that person makes a public post. You show up in their "who follows you" list. If things become stalkerish, that person can block you. Good questions.

Admin comments on Jan 15, 2018:
Thanks for the post. We're working on how to show more posts that are of interest to you. For now, click the "gear" icon that's above "Recent Member Activity" and select which categories of posts you'd like to see more/less of. Obviously, since you made the post, we're not doing a good enough job on that. Open to hear other members' ideas too!
Do you block the trolls around here?
Admin comments on Jan 15, 2018:
This is a good observation. We created some better admin tools to find which members have the most abuse reports and blocks and are getting faster at removing these types of members. Determining between a troll or an unpopular opinion maker seems to be more an art than a science. I like art so I'm optimistic we can do better. Thanks!
Pinned posts?

Assuming the person you're trying to contact is a level one, will they even get the message?
Admin comments on Jan 13, 2018:
Yes. All message sent are received by the person you're sending.
How do you let people know you're interested in meeting them if you're a level one?
Admin comments on Jan 12, 2018:
Make it to level 2... it's not that hard. Make a few comments.
I'm not interested in gaining points or levels. why the hierarchy ?
Admin comments on Jan 12, 2018:
For making it harder for scammers and to show appreciation to our active members.
Fake accounts?

Is Agnostic.com already dying?
Admin comments on Jan 12, 2018:
We're growing more than ever. However, in the last 3 days we had to turn off advertising as the server couldn't handle the traffic. I think we finally sped up the code enough to turn it back on TODAY. We're currently working on groups and event calendar (they're connected) and hope to have it live in a few weeks.

Admin comments on Jan 12, 2018:

Admin comments on Jan 11, 2018:
Happy to get members' opinion on this as we already have it 90% implemented but holding off for now. Our fear is that "don't like" become more political instead of the goal to find what is the most useful (perhap "best") comment to a post. E.g., not liking what someone said doesn't mean that it's not a good answer. We're thinking "dislike" should be more "bad/weak answer". My current thoughts is to have a "dislike" button but not show who dislike the post NOR the # of dislikes. However, it's used if someone wants to sort by "likes". Thoughts?
What is this site?
Admin comments on Jan 11, 2018:
Hi Jeff - I checked out your login and think I improved the default search results for you. Your profile says you're open to men and women and I think that made the search have problems. There's 62 people within 50 miles of you... yah not much, but still, we're a niche site. A.

Ok, I added text formatting to the FAQ page.
It appears that this site is like a lot of other personal sites.....
Admin comments on Jan 10, 2018:
First, my apology for not clearly reading your post. I investigated it and it appears Carol marked her profile as "Paused". I guess my point was that we did have a real member reply to you... which is better than other sites (and we're free). I did use your account and improved the message when you go back to the messenger. Best wishes and good luck!
@Admin what's going on with the insane volume of multi-posts?! Making the site unusable!
Admin comments on Jan 10, 2018:
Send me some links... we just updated code today for editing comment replies perhaps it caused bugs. Ironically, about 10 minutes ago I pushed code that should prevent identical comment replies by the same member on the same comment. Happy to fix.

This "issue" was that one paragraph started with 4 spaces... which tells our parser to format it with courier font (complexity) sorry. We should write a better doc sometime soon.

Anyone else as surprised as I am that there are so many Atheist Republicans on here? I mean your ...
Admin comments on Jan 9, 2018:
This post is a good example of what we're trying to AVOID at agnostic.com. The post is attacking ANOTHER ATHEIST for their political affiliation instead of realizing how important it is that we get MORE atheist Republicans ... or more Republicans turning atheist. Atheist Republicans need as much encouragement as we can offer even while disagreeing polically. They are an oppressed minority within their party. No need to ostracize them here, no? BTW, I'm not bashing you... I really like your comments in general. Just venting myself!
Does anyone know if we have any stats on the average age range of the members here?
Admin comments on Jan 9, 2018:
Oh man... we just put up charts on everything except that (see account -> questions page). Age range is new. We only suggest to make it as wide as possible :)
Should we consider our Admin as a kind of 'God"?
Admin comments on Jan 9, 2018:
We are just custodians to the members of the site. Civil servants.
Does the level system reward quantity rather than quality in posting?
Admin comments on Jan 9, 2018:
The system gives more points to better posts both directly and indirectly as other members interact with them. We still have some ideas to improve it. Yours?
