You want to post pictures?


I got an offer to see a picture of a scorpion yesterday, which is neat, but we don’t allow pictures in comments because we want to be kind to readers’ bandwidth and because there are trolls who would abuse it. But then I thought…hey, you know that Freethoughtblogs has a Discord server? That would be a perfect place for that sort of thing. I even created a #photos channel within it, awaiting your submissions.

I suppose I could create a spider-free channel if people demand it. But why wouldn’t everyone want to see spider photos? (Don’t bother answering, I know.)

    Stupid question: Does accessing the Discord server require it’s own login credentials, or can I use my Pharyngula?

    Discord has their own thing which doesn’t link up to Google/Microsoft/etc. accounts.

    hemidactylus @3:

    Is the Discord server troll proof?

    I don’t think there’s any bridges on there, so maybe?

    Nothing is troll proof. But we have a good group of people there who can catch any wicked activity, and several FtB bloggers who would be ready to take action.

    Would ‘spider lychantropy’ count as wicked activity (asking for a friend*)?

    *Yes, I know lychantropy refers to canids. It is a wolf spider thing.
