I don’t think the newer peeps know it is part of being a higher up level. I also don’t think people want to approve posts. I approve a lot myself. I also agree that some people have been reported, and need their posts approved. I hope I never fall into this category. @Admin, your ...
Admin replies on Jan 21, 2018:
Yep, there was a bug that I think I just fixed where comments that shouldn't need member 6+ approval were showing up. We do have a system that puts members on 2 week probation if they get too many reports (weighted by the level of the reporter) which just means that their comments are read (ok, skimmed) before they go live. I probably need to tweak the algorithm a bit.
How can we improve this community?

I do not really understand what "show more" does: which of the posts are we *not* seeing already? How is the selection made of what we see and do not see by default and if we check all the "see more" boxes? If we check all of them will we see all the posts that exist?
Admin replies on Jan 8, 2018:
Good question. Not all posts go to the main page. If there are some have been asked a few times recently, they go only in the category list (and on profile page). We also try to have the main page have different types of posts. Also, if someone posts 3-4 posts in a row that are about the same topic, 2-3 of them go on the category page only. If you see "new" on a category, that means that the most recently post there hasn't yet been seen by you. Complicated, eh? :)

Ok, it’s been 3 weeks since our last confession, uh, I mean site improvement list. We’ve been ...
Paul628 comments on Nov 23, 2017:
I've gotten 2 messages now that say "Sorry, content deleted." What's up? Sorry for all the complaining.
Admin replies on Nov 24, 2017:
Sometimes we notify people about a post/comment/reply/etc that then gets deleted either by the author or by us. We could either remove the notification from your list or just let you know that it's been deleted. I'll try to get a link from the "Sorry, content deleted" message to the FAQ with an answer to that .

MsOliver comments on Nov 23, 2017:
Don't get me wrong, I love the site and I certainly want the developers to enjoy their holiday, but when someone gets a chance the notifications is all messed up. It pops up with 3 or 4, but will say I have 40 and then some of the notices just have the user name, but no information. It's bugged ...

I'm coding while getting ready for turkey... will check out your account and FIX before bird is on my fork. Thanks for the challenge :)

Zster comments on Nov 22, 2017:
HELP!!! The message function wont work! I am getting messages, repeatedly, and when the conversation reached the bottom of the page, it froze! The sender sees everything fine, but I can see nothing more. The screen wont scroll. Rebooting my iPhone (6, running iOS 20.3.3) did not fix it.

The “block” option doesn’t seem to be working yet, any idea when?

It's working on my test account. Can you send me a message directly and tell me who you blocked and who you think can still see you or you them? I can see a couple people are blocked now.

Ok, now since my last comment, I now have 79 notices in my inbox. Help me, please.
Admin replies on Nov 22, 2017:
Grrrr... I was afraid of that. Made a lot of changes in the code in the last 8 hours and I might have accidentally sent out individual emails to some test accounts as we rolling it out. I'm really sorry that you go so many emails as I know how much of a hassle it is to delete them. I'll keep my eye on the system closely the next few days. If you get another flurry of emails, please message me directly and I'll turn the system off until have time to do a full review. Thanks!

Yesterday it was fine, but today when I get a notification that someone liked one of my comments, or replied to one. When I go there to see it, it takes me to somewhere that has nothing to do with me. It takes me to the top of the right post but that's it.
Admin replies on Nov 22, 2017:
Thanks - I'll check it out. We made some changes in the last 24 hours on the format of notifications, it could be it jumps to another place. [I just reviewed the code and it seems right... will check later]

JLFowler comments on Nov 22, 2017:
Please don't do the email thing. The problem that you're trying to fix which is getting folks to come back to the site, will be fixed with the apps. The email thing is annoying and as long as the app works like popular social media I think we'll check in.
Admin replies on Nov 22, 2017:
Tech-wise, we are trying to support all types of users. The email is just another type of notification... needed as we do other types too. Just released so hopefully will work :)

Is there any way to block another member? I come here as a respite from the hate spewed by Trump ...
Admin comments on Nov 13, 2017:
What a coincidence... I'm working on that code RIGHT NOW! You'll see a "Hide" or similar button on the profile page. Currently, it's just a block where they can't see your stuff.. but I think I'm going to make it 2 way... if you block someone, you won't see their stuff either. What do you think?
Admin replies on Nov 13, 2017:
ok, I'll work on that... when you block someone, you will still be able to see their PROFILE but not their posts. This is so you can unblock them later :) It's not a big feature, so we won't show a list of blocked users unless it's used more often.

Admin replies on Nov 12, 2017:
Should be fixed now - sorry about the inconvenience as we are updating the software daily to add functionality and sometimes have bugs. Now that the site is getting larger, we'll try to be more careful and check site more often during the day.

Do You? Or don't you? Like poetry?
Maya405 comments on Nov 10, 2017:
@Admin, lots of poetry-lovers. Can we have a category for Poems or Poetry, please?
Admin replies on Nov 10, 2017:
We are working on a tag system that will handle this... let me add "poetry" to the default tags now. If I get it working, you'll see "poetry" tag at the top of the page. :)

Why do posts seem to appear in batches?
snytiger6 comments on Nov 3, 2017:
I think could be due to periodic site updates. Also, persons below level 5, have to have their posts read and approved before they are posted onto the site. I think tht poolicy definitely brings up the quality of what is posted over all.
Admin replies on Nov 4, 2017:
We read all posts before they make it to the main page list (and only about a 1/3 make it there). However, Level 5+ get their comments and replies to go live instantly.

daddy4pugs comments on Nov 3, 2017:
My level is not moving and I think it should be going up. I have not received notifications of replies recently, but there just may not have been any.
Admin replies on Nov 4, 2017:
Are your points going up normally? At level 7, takes longer to get to the next 0.1.
Why do posts seem to appear in batches?
Admin comments on Nov 3, 2017:
It's not just you. It's us. We manually curate posts before they go live so that the front page has more interesting posts.. Comments/replies go live instantly for Level 5+. How about we make posts go live instantly on profile pages for level 2+ and then we review them later? We're also ...
Admin replies on Nov 4, 2017:
Ok, just made it so if you are level 3 or higher, you can view posts on people's PROFILE page instantly. Yes, this doesn't yet make the site feel more alive as you have to know to go to their page to see the content. As far as the main page, I haven't found a good way yet to let things go live before we have a chance to curate them (many level 5+ people post things which are less interesting to make it to the main page). Only about 1/3 of posts make it there right now and I sometimes edit the title/etc to make them more readable. Let me think about making a secret "raw" main page option so you can see our incoming queue earlier.
Am I not like-able?
Admin comments on Oct 31, 2017:
The "like" button is removed for members' own posts. We could add it for all but then say "Hey, buddy, what's up with you a likin' your own posts? ". Dunno.
Admin replies on Oct 31, 2017:
Ah, right - good catch. I'll put it on now.
So where do our members live? Check out these maps that show the average locations. It's ...
vertrauen comments on Oct 31, 2017:
Are these maps purely a snapshot or are they being continually updated? I imagine the former; I am pretty sure these aren't being refreshed. It would be interesting to see these develop. Would it be complicated to make it a feature? (Not a high priority but interesting)
Admin replies on Oct 31, 2017:
Yeah, just takes time. Will update them in a few months.
It would be nice if we could set audio cues for certain notifications. It happens frequently that ...
Admin comments on Oct 31, 2017:
Interesting idea. Our first goal is just to get the mailbox icon updating in real-time. I'll think about if we can make an audio bing when mail or alerts come in. Thanks!

Why does the site correct lol into all caps? I’m not laughing like a spaz, or even out loud most of the time when I use that acronym. Lol, this is a small complaint, but it bugs me almost as much as apple autocorrecting to “ducking.”

Gigante comments on Oct 30, 2017:
@admin Since the update my chat message logs now all say "obsolete". Attempting to send a new message initially displays the correct text but, upon refreshing the page, the text changes to "obsolete." What's going on?
Admin replies on Oct 30, 2017:
Yep, this just got fix. All text now goes through a pre-processor so we can strip out bad words for people who don't want to see them. The old code just returned "obsolete" but we forgot to check the chat rooms :( Sorry.
Why do you say that you're only 99.9% sure that god doesn't exist? I'm not currently in my ...
Admin comments on Oct 30, 2017:
Maybe because we didn't give the option for 99.999999%? The percent changes for me depending on if the question of which "god" we're talking about. 99.9% is meant to mean "pretty damn sure" (whoops!).

Great job admin! I haven't been very active lately due to work, but its good to return, and see the changes :) Hopefully there is a filter for duplicate posts . between members.
Admin replies on Oct 30, 2017:
Duplicate posts? Hmmm... I have seen a number of duplicates recently. Can add some more checks. I'm also concerned about people posting similar things (not bad just clutter). Now that members can link to another post in their comments, maybe that can help.

evidentialist comments on Oct 30, 2017:

Admin replies on Oct 30, 2017:
We've always moderated the posts but were swamped coding these last few days to do it every few hours. We will soon work on a way for people to post more instantly for posts that show up on their profile page. Our goal is to select interesting posts for the main page and let other posts go into categories and on the "all category".

Admin replies on Oct 30, 2017:
Well, hard to take credit for putting back something that we removed but I'll take the compliment. Thanks! We do want to increase the chance of people to meet others organically. Hopefully, seeing nearby members will help.

Mangoes comments on Oct 29, 2017:
So do you guys intend to eventually make money off of this site? It's not like I see any ads, so how do you make money?
Admin replies on Oct 29, 2017:
We have no desire to make money. Our goal is to normalize unbelief by building a large and supportive community of atheists, agnostics, secularists etc. and perhaps help coordinate efforts to change politics. For now, we're just spending on advertising and building. Hopefully, members can help too!

First, I'd like to say THANK YOU for being here! The very fact this site exists is a vast improvement to the internet in general for nonbelievers of all types. I'd like to suggest a newbie "area" though, well monitored by Admins. There are a lot of trolls on the site attacking newcomers and my ...
Admin replies on Oct 28, 2017:
Really great feedback Dave! I keep wanting to get a nicer on-ramp for new members but been bogged down a bit with bug fixes and basic feature additions. Had to wait until we have some more settings available for members before getting a welcome process in place. Hopefully in the next 5-6 days. Thanks also for hanging in there with trolls. We're starting to ban trolling types more quickly now too.
