Surreal and i, and anyone else who would want to give a helping hand, will take all the feedback we got from this test, we'll work on getting it implemented and fixing the things that doesn't work completely, and when that's all done, Konsent should be ready for actual implementation here on Raddle, to replace the administration system, if the community wants to of course.

I'll make a new post soon titled "The Future of Konsent + Raddle" where i go more in-depth with it all, on /f/Konsent.

Profile management and bios are really good ideas, I'll get that done as soon as i can.

Sorry about the four letter requirement, some of these numbers are just completely random as we have no idea what'll work and what won't (same goes for the minimum resting time and required votes in phase 1).

That's a lot of good ideas, I've added most of your suggestions to github, will include them in the next release if we can. Hopefully, if we manage to get most of what's been suggested here into 0.4b, Konsent will pretty much be ready for actual use. I'll also try to clean up the UI a bit.

The way i see it, there's defensive and offensive force (violence is a form of force). Using force to suppress, exploit or dominate others classifies as offensive, while protecting yourself against this by fighting back (with violence or other types of force) classifies as defensive.

Defensive force is justified. Offensive force is not.

This is without a doubt an interesting take on anarchism (and in my opinion a step in the right direction), but there is one thing that i really don't like: it seems like violence is being promoted simply for the sake of violence. Violence is an important tool (and again, in my opinion, necessary), but violence for the sake of violence, simply because it is enjoyable to some, should never be an ideal.

I'm on the fence with this one. It sounds good in practice, but i can see a lot of potential issues with it too. Mainly, i think the people who would accept it and continue their discussion in the new thread are not the same people that this proposal is designed to protect against.

Then there's the issues with making everything more complicated and giving administrators even more power and responsibilities, which i don't think is a good idea at all.

Loomio looks pretty neat, I'll leave that up to everyone else here.

avoid accusations of polls being manipulated server-side

All voting is onymous on Konsent, which means that even if I go through the trouble of manipulating the votes, everyone will be able to see who cast them, making vote manipulation very difficult if the community is observant. I'll figure out a way to make manipulation completely impossible, but for now I'm sure that'll do.

I know I'll be sticking around, doing what I can to fix things. We've now got a domain for Konsent, a good hosting service and are working to get everything online (thanks to Fossidarity for helping with paying for it all!). Things are happening. I really hope we can get things back in shape here, perhaps even better and more robust than before.

Not at all. There's plenty of life and love left on Raddle. I'll stay until there's nobody left that i want to be around, but there's plenty of good people here, so I don't see that happening anytime soon; and I'll do my best to pull things in the right direction (I know I've slipped a few times, but I'm learning from my mistakes).
