[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 days ago

[-] [email protected] 19 points 2 days ago

it's Corey from Oneyplays put through a bunch of face app filters.
it was the 196 subreddit icon when Reddit went to shit and I saw no need to change it

delete stuff that violates our rules

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 days ago

All right! I'll send you a link to our discord chat and then appoint you after you join

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 days ago

excellent! The fact that you've been active and available in the 2 months since you sent in your application bodes very well

to be honest, I should be contributing to moderation more. it's mostly my team that does the upkeep.

I'm going to try to be more active in my management of my team members from now on in order to nip moderatorial issues like this in the bud, rather than allowing them to continue for months. it feels unfair for me or others to blame those who made poor calls of judgment when I wasn't there to consult.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 days ago

With the constant growth of our mod team and the demanding nature of actually having lives outside of niche internet communities, Ada and I have come to the decision that the mod team once again needs to expand.
Applications work the same way they did the last two mod calls:
Post a brief write-up on yourself and why you think we should give you moderator status, as well as a link to at least one other social media account. (reddit, twitter, instagram, facebook, mastodon, tumblr, bluesky are all accepted.) If you don't want your alts to be public, you can send them as a private DM to me. Applications don't have a fixed close date, but we're looking for at least four new mods in multiple time zones.

I will be personally selecting all new additions to the mod team. Please be civil, and good luck!

I've been seeing a lot of anti-voting sentiment going around. Can't believe I have to say this, but you need to vote. Not only is there more to the election than just the president. (State policy, Senate, house), but not voting is not an act of protest. C'mon guys

We now have a shared mod email for you to send complaints, issues, praise, ideas, mod applications, really anything to. All of the 196 mods have access to this.

Poll verdict:
all AI generated content is now banned.
moldy memes will now be kept to moldy Monday. on moldy Monday moldy memes are encouraged. on every other day they will be removed. bonus points if minions are somehow involved. you also receive bonus points if your image has two or more filters/watermarks, and is under one megabyte large

Sorry for two new pinned posts within the span of 24 hours. after coming back I figured some of the rules needed some updating, and it is policy to put any rule change up to vote for the members.

The two changes I currently would like to make, is increased enforcement of the moldy posting rule, and a new rule banning AI generated content.

moldy posting is when you post a meme that you would find on your aunt's Facebook page or Elon musk's Twitter account. I'm talking properly old, moldy, watermarked, painfully irrelevant posts. I think we should remove them simply because they kind of suck, and removing them would raise the level of quality of 196.

I believe we should ban AI generated content because it is exploitative by nature, and I don't think we should be feeding it.

please discuss in the comments, and vote on whether or not you think these changes should be made. vote on each change separately. if there are any other rule changes that you would like to suggest, now is the time.

196 stands with Palestine. (
