I have to say I'm not sure whether the positives of everyone being admins outweigh the bad.   Some of the positives are obviously the chaos and no power struggles.  But the bad points- people having access to IP addresses who perhaps shouldn't have imo, and the potential for it to become one endless prankfest (possibly a good point too).

I don't think it's possible to have EVERYONE be an admin.
But, SMF is remarkably flexible. First, some of the privileges 
could be denied to regular members (something of a sanity
clause - there are things which no one really needs). There
could also be a vetting period, for new members.

As to pranks, they would get boring (I suspect) if
they could be reversed easily. So, a whole etiquette
could develop. I don't really know.

I might. Depends whether it looked interesting and had an active enough membership. I'd probably get an account there even if I didn't stay.

The lack of coherent vision is my main hesitation, but I suppose that's the point, so it might not be for me.

The vision is what we're talking about here. Personally,
I'm seeing flaws here which are causing us to lose members.
I'd like to regain some of those - many of whom where our
most seriously divergent thinkers. Largely, I'd like to see a place
like intensity, but with a bit more vision than the whole "the only
rule here..." crap, which is OBVIOUSLY not the case.

e-mail isn't required. I use a spam account here.
Anyhow, as I said, not everything would have
to be available.

Oh, come on, she was a member of the spam busters,
until she made a mistake. I think we had IP access then.
This is largely what the vetting process might entail, allowing
people to see who was being admitted, so that they COULD
resign.

I think it might just turn out to be one big cluster fuck though and not be around long

That's why it would be an experiment. Not that I'm committed
to THAT particular principle. Something else could be preferable.

Of course, democracy would turn you off (and maybe others
who might rather try this). Plus, democracy is too likely to
solidify cliquish behavior. Something I'm hoping to avoid.

Hell, maybe the problem is that some of the people here
were refugees from cliques which were in power, at WP.
And were removed for engaging in just such actions. But,
it would seem that equality is the best answer to that. Or
tyranny, but most web sites do THAT.

I have worked too many jobs that were like this i never turns out good.  If everybody was actually doing as they are supposed to it might work but human nature what it is it holds little promise of be successful and all it takes is a few fuckers to screw it up.  Like I said I'd try it but wouldn't have any long term hopes

I'm seeing the whole thing as more of a testbed,
than anything else. Though, even if a successful
formula is achieved, I don't have much hope of
adopting it here. Nice as it would be.

You are mistaken about this, Calandale.

Like with many other aspie places, I'd probably get an account to see what the place was about, then decide if it was worth it.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

I'd love to see you there. Mainly, IF it did work,
you might be convinced that such would
work here too. Whatever eventual path
it follows.

Why does it have to be aspie-only?

Aspies and NTs integrate (somewhat) in real life. It would add to the chaos for sure.

TBH I don't know if I'd be diagnosed with AS or something else or nothing at all if I had a formal diagnosis.

How can you tell if someone is really an aspie online anyway? Not making proper eye-contact with the webcam?

I find the idea of aspie sites rather elitist and only contributing to alienation.
This brain could do with some more dimethyltryptamine.

What is the difference between ignorance and apathy? "I don't know and I don't care."

It certainly wouldn't be aspie only.
BUT, I want some purpose to the place,
in terms of focus. And, if I made a theme
site, it wouldn't interest many who are
here, in the slightest. Plus, I'd probably
moderate it, to keep things on topic.
