I am loving this site!
Admin comments on Jan 6, 2018:
Happy to hear! Thanks :)
Today is my birthday, and I just realize Agnostic.com doesn't reflect the increase. Do I stay 59 ...
Admin comments on Jan 6, 2018:
Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you, HippieChick58 Happy birthday to you :) Ok, I've heard for "Forever 21" but "Forever 59" is a new one to me. But ok, you get your wish, you're now 60 on Agnostic.com :)
Was there a reason why you chose "Agnostic" for this site?
Admin comments on Jan 6, 2018:
Well, it came up on the roulette wheel. I think a common theme among our members is a desire to have clarity based on evidence. One of the first steps for clarity is to be able to say "I wonder". We hope that promoting the term "Agnostic" become helpful when we interact with religious people as it shifts the conversation from one about "belief" to one about "evidence other than gut feelings". This being said, we are also looking at other domains to become a portal into this site. For example, humanist.com
@admin - Bravo! I love the new home page! Is that what it's called? Good job and thanks!
Admin comments on Jan 6, 2018:
Thanks... we change a bit every day so I don't know what part you like but thanks :)

Admin comments on Jan 5, 2018:
The ".org" extension could be purchased by any organization just as a non-profit can own a ".com" (like we do). One of our purpose is simply to provide a nice space for people to interact. No ads, no prophet, non-profit. Welcome!

Levels?
Admin comments on Jan 5, 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).

Admin comments on Jan 3, 2018:
Spell check is a browser/computer function and not specific to this website. However, we've seen that it works sometimes here too. Let me know if you have a specific case. Thanks!

Admin comments on Jan 2, 2018:
This is only our 3rd month and we're evolving the way we are showing posts to steer towards the more positives aspects of community. One way we're considering is to have the posts be more tailored to the members (e.g., if you want to chat about religion, you see more religion oriented posts, etc). Thoughts?
I am pretty new to this site, but is christian slamming a normal part of things here?

Admin comments on Jan 1, 2018:
OK, sorry. Best wishes.
Why are we using hashtags, if no one looks them up, before posting?
Admin comments on Jan 1, 2018:
We will be adding a way to show tags as members type posts (below where they are typing) so they could see if the topic was already posted. Still thinking of ways to help merge topics... will need to give an incentive to a new poster to "bump" up an existing topic instead of posting their own. Perhaps have a way for members to make a sub-post under a similar question or we hook one under another.

Admin comments on Dec 30, 2017:
I took one of these online questionnaire and found that I'm a "Centrist". Shocking. The word "Conservative" (as well as "Liberal") are easy to vilify as both sides have debatable opinions on specific issues. Better to ask if there are people who have a opinion on a specific issue. While there are very few Trump supporters here, it doesn't mean that "Conservatives" are unwelcome. As our community guidelines say, we try to only debate issues, not people.
Why are posts being deleted?

Yes, it is something we want to code up. I have to think about the algorithm to do it as it's computationally complex to do a single pair of compatibilities. If you click on the "Heart" icon at the top of a profile, you can see how the score is calculated. I wrote a similar script decades ago to rank match classmates in high school for a valentine's day fund raiser. Yep, before geeks had cred. Will put this "on the list"... and perhaps let members vote on their favorites.

Hi Kreig... spend a few hours trying to update the sort of similar questions. A few days ago I had to simplify the algorithm as the computer couldn't handle it. The underlying issue is that it's hard to balance "similarness" and "newness"... I totally hacked it now to merge both... so they now show sorta newish similarish questions... that you haven't commented on... and it shows which you viewed. Creepy huh?

Admin comments on Dec 27, 2017:
Nice question! We have several behind-the-scenes tools to identify bad behavior but we rely mostly on you guys. We just updated the "report" and "block" member code today so that it can be used to flag posts that are suspect. Also, if a user gets too many reports, we automatically require their content to be reviewed before it goes live... in a special queue. I'll make an "update" posts in the next couple of days.

Admin comments on Dec 27, 2017:
Hi Kreig Thanks for the message. When someone blocks another, we see the "report" and take action. For KevinJohnson, we are contacting him today and give him his first and final warning and will delete his account if he does anything else disrespectful. One bad apple isn't worth the trouble. I will be writing some code today to revoke "level 5" privilege of getting comments live instantly if someone has a "block" in the last 14 days. It will also highlight for review any posts/comment they do. Fair? A

How do you define agnostic, atheist, and theist? I define self as a strong agnostic atheist, but ...
Admin comments on Dec 22, 2017:
The issue with a chart like this is that doesn't define what "God" is. The more details someone gives about a specific God (e.g., he has long white hair, hates anal sex, etc), the more confident an agnostic is about not believing it. If one uses a fuzzy "god is the universe" or "god is a simulation" definition, an atheist becomes less confident. For Agnostic.com, the commonality of most of our membership is that we rely on our senses, logic, and humility to opine. Unfortunately, religious people perpetuate the misconception that all atheists are gnostic atheists when most atheists are just very very very sure agnostics when it comes to organized religions. We waste time trying to correct them on the definition of "Atheist" as they WANT it that was for a debate on "belief". By using Agnostic, it shifts the conversation into evidence and proof... which is dangerous territory for a religious person.

90 percent of the points are owned by the top 1%. This is a yuge problem.

Have you seen any level 8 persons here?
Admin comments on Dec 13, 2017:
Yes, we just had our first level 8 member - @silvereyes Pretty amazing as the site's only been up for 3 months. While we don't want people to focus on levels, you'll see two digit levels on some pages (e.g., 7.4). Yes, level 9 and 10 are crazy high but we hope to be around until our member are considered normal :)
