Josh posted an interesting question I think is perhaps best answered by the community of people who want to take part.
In a somewhat heated debate in a separate thread, @Josh_Constable asked:
In response as admin, this forum should already help evidence the fact you are correct. Every edit is stored and viewable by everyone and so should show that Josh never asked this. To me by default the situation sorts itself by you just calling it out as you saw it. I don’t think there’s any specific need for admin intervention here?
I’m interested if anyone thinks differently though? This place is small right now, but would like to work on growing it together.
What I’d really like to aim for on here, and where I need help - is I’d like to work to enable open political discussion between all parties and people with an interest. (I know I know, sounds crazy, right? ). Hopefully we could work together to improve the local political debate with an aim of encouraging new ideas and educating readers. There is far less noise on here than twitter and facebook and so it should be somewhat easier to get your message across. Discussions or posts here are sharable.
If contributors are smart, here can also be a great read & resource for any future voters! Something sorely missing!
I turn to all forum members with the open question - should we do anything different to improve the discussion here? In my mind there’s a couple of simple things from contributors which would help massively improve the discussion for readers, mainly covered by the FAQ, which I encourage everyone to read.
If you think we’re missing some advice or recommendation, call it out?
