Honestly im getting tired of threads where you see a lot of people posting and like 1-3 people trying to debunk the posts in the thread like they are going to accomplish something in life by posting 20 times in a thread.

My idea for a new forum is a FACTS only forum where each individual can only post ONE post in a thread with all the FACTS they have accumlated on the subject. Also give moderators the ability to edit post if the person comes up with more facts for their post and they have PM'd a the moderator with what they need added/removed.

Then have a separate area where they can debate said facts in another other area and if the fact(s) in part of a post get proven false then they will be edited out.

You are assuming the ATS MODS have nothing but time on their hands. What you are proposing is a full time job, by someone not paid, to verify all *facts* posted. And monitor for trolls.....not going to happen. imoho...

And...you have proof of this how.......To make such a claim, you must provide proof.

Your link is typical Business Layout...show me the MODS are paid.

Those are ATS profiles, nothing secret. Not pay stubs. What you are providing to prop up your claim, is nothing more than what we all have here. And, very typical business banter.....

Of course, corporate positions are paid...but you claimed that all the MODS here are paid positions....big difference.

What you are suggesting is called a Wiki.

And .. doesn't ATS already have one ?

Not that I had ever seen it put to any sort of use ..

That's a clever idea for a thread though I was thinking of also. But keep in mind what Neitzsche said, "There are no facts, only interpretations". Also if want the logical approach keep in mind some of life's tougher questions have have multiple correct answers. Just because you find one logical answer does not mean it's the only logical answer (people ALWAYS forget this). Maybe just start a thread called "LIFE: what are it's fundamental truths?"

If you want ideas like forums that will require work for the admins, then dangle a carrot.

Here's a decent Idea, Start a DIY forum that could have specialized advertising for survival gear, seed suppliers, tool companies, fishing supplies. This forum could have sub threads for fishing tricks, camping/survival/farming tricks, making your own energy, food and supplies.It would encourage self reliance, survival skills and community all while increasing revenues and popularity and usefulness. win win win! Many of the threads for this forum already exist and just need to be moved as a nice starting base.

If ATS wanted to do something incredible and HEROIC, that would be to help others with the tools to "deny ignorance". Basically just a few threads of simply written formulas and/or analogies of how to use the Hegelian dialectic to deduce reasonable answers, how logic really works on its most basic level and one example, and a list of the top 25 conspiracies ATS users believe are hoaxes. That way rational people can get down to business and irrational folks can see exactly how much ignorance hurts. Maybe even a huge page of testimonials from users who learned something both wild and awakening on this site. You folks wanna hire me yet, i have a knack for fixing things.

Staff is welcome to these ideas
