What about a Facebook account? It's a very popular place. --LouP 13:36, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Facebook and past problems with sexual predators

Has Facebook solved or greatly diminished to their problems with sexual predators going after minors on their website? If memory serves they had problems in this area. I believe they have been working with various government authorities on this matter but I was reluctant to cite them unless I had more information. Conservative 14:34, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

They have taken some steps but the jury is still out on how effective they will be as it is too early to tell. Please see: http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1738560,00.html?xid=feed-cnn-topics

In the meantime, I think we should be cautious. Conservative 14:47, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Newsletter

I would suggest a Conservapedia newsletter, issued once a month. People could subscribe to it and receive news and updates about the site's most important events.--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 15:00, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Not sure we have the manpower to do that, however, perhaps a news about Conservapedia page could be created. Conservative 15:49, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

I suppose. Although I thought that a newsletter might remind people who haven't checked the site in a while to do so, whereas a page here would only inform people who read it fairly regularly (and those people probably don't need such info).--Tom Moorefiat justitia ruat coelum 15:54, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

I like the newsletter idea; it could be as simple as a once-a-month thing, featuring the latest Featured articles, some great quotes, a little news and a cartoon, and maybe a final word from Andrew Schlafly. It would definitely be unique, and as long as it remained encyclopedic it's worth thinking about doing this in the future. DerekE 20:05, 2 February 2010 (EST)

Copyright

What's the status of the youtube clip? Was it posted legitimately by the CBC rather than pirated? Daphnea 14:55, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

Digg

I've always wanted to test this out, even though it may be a long-shot: knowing how the site digg.com works, I bet if every single hardcore member of Conservapedia created a Digg account, befriended each other, and then planned ahead of time with a specific article to digg, picked a day and hour of the day to begin digging it, and then dugg the that article with as many diggs as possible in the first couple of hours, I bet we could get it to the front page. If there were 150 to 200 Conservapedians who dugg the same article within an hour of its first digg, something tells me it would reach the front page. It would be a fun if it worked! And a great way to get the word out, letting the world know that Conservapedia isn't going anywhere but up.
...Just thought it'd be a fun project or interesting experiment to try, if there are enough people willing to try it that is. DerekE 19:59, 2 February 2010 (EST)
