While reading through this thread, an idea formed.
*Should note first, that I'm probably the least experienced person on TFSF, with regard to this type of online social format.
I am familiar with YT & Bitchute trolls, though obviously this format is quite different so I'm guessing they could be much more pervasive, maybe?
Anyways, for the idea:
I wouldn't know if something similar has already been considered, but I'm thinking of a kind of earned privilege ranking system, based upon accumulated feedback to posts by the reaction emojis.
So like, let's say there were several levels of accessible boards.
A first degree board, open to all.
A second degree board, that's also accessible once a specified rank has been attained by positive feedback.
Then a third degree board, and maybe a fourth elite/founder board.
Obviously the higher degree boards always have full access to the lesser.
Maybe this type of thing has been tried and failed, I have no clue though and am just trying to contribute something I'm thinking might potentially work and may be beneficial to TFSF.
As far as I'm currently aware, trolls generally tend to lack positive, if at all any, feedback from other social media users.
So even if they[trolls] are not immediately noticed or dealt with accordingly, they're never able to freely cause any annoyance for established TFSF members.
All trolls would be restricted by virtue of their own unconstructive behaviours, essentially they'd be self retarding.
I guess maybe there'd also need to be some general burden of responsibility & duty upon the established higher ranking TFSF members to keep an eye out/report any active trolling & also to step in and assist any new/first degree members being harassed.
Why would any established ranking TFSF members voluntarily take on such responsibility?
Because, (a) -it's the just & honourable thing to do, and
(b) -because it is proactively participating in something which beneficially contributes to the growth of TFSF community as a whole, thus also inherently benefits the individual too.
🙂👍Dunno, just an idea.
