Great post.

IIRC downvote on SaidIt can never happen. The database is only configured for 2 votes - no additions. No need to sweat it.


I drafted yesterday and posted today:
Please Consider These Potential New Subs, Volume 1 | Part 1: NewSaidits' Proposed Guidelines + Part 2: Potentially Fun Interactive Subs

I kept it focused on lighter ideas avoiding heavier topics and politics despite being tempted. I was very close to making an exception for one particular idea...

Proposed sub: /s/InfiltratorWatch

Purpose: A sub for organizing some kind of SaidIt counter-troll awareness and resistance campaign. In this sub our community could discuss what forms and functions this "Infiltrator Watch" takes (for lack of a better name). Here's a list of ideas to consider employing, with additions and/or subtractions as we see fit:

  • a weekly newsletter cautioning SaidIt on trolls
  • exposing troll techniques
  • current events involving trolls and bots
  • developing creative fun or interactive projects (to keep this from getting boring and people becoming complacent)
  • provide tools to recognize and endure troll psychological attacks
  • promote cooperative self-policing of our own community (rather than rely solely on admins and mods that may or may not be active everywhere at all times)
  • SaidIt savvy tools (like the OP pointing out how to easily recognize new users)
  • how to be skeptical of new users without alienating authentic fresh voices
  • troll tactics, short games, long games, etc.
  • pattern recognition in names
  • precautions not to openly expose patterns to cause the trolls and bots to just change their routines
  • developing Private Message networks of trusted friends for emergencies and/or SaidIt news
    1. develop ways to fairly best determine who's trustworthy without tribalism, drama, and/or pettiness
    2. a post or wiki can maintain a tree of names openly (or WOSC?)
    3. the tree has no social status ranking, it's just a route of delivery, listing who's responsible for sending and who receives
    4. a seeder sends a message to 10 people who send the message to 10 people who send the message to 10 people who send the message to 10 people and you've covered most people.
    5. confirm that all branches of the tree were successfully delivered to
  • etc.

I have not been sleeping well so the ideas are not flowing as freely, but I'm quite sure there are many other potential angles and such to consider here.

Should I bother posting this comment in /s/NewSaidits?

What do you think of /s/InfiltratorWatch (for lack of a better name)?

Step in the right direction. I always wondered if we could have a decentralized tribunal system, where lets say x amount of random people get selected to review a case were a user has been reported (past a threshold). Now to help prevent bad actors, when you report a user, you have to stake crypto, if the jury deems the reported user a troll and the case is in your favor, you and everyone who voted correctly gets crypto from all the user who voted in the other direction.

Idea stolen from the Colony DAO, how to deal with conflict resolution. We could totally have this system on our Web3 based forum.

Great ideas, though initially I felt like the crypto could somehow be gamed, the excellent demo video squashed those concerns.
