Welcome to Sensible Endowment

quote [ It's an SE, but it's not! ]

So, I chose Sensible Endowment because this site is basically an inheritance of the old community, it's also run primarily by donations, and, most of all, to be well endowed is to have large genitalia ;)

Right now, the site is a slightly buggy version of the old SE to get through the weekend while I'm out of town. Starting Monday I'll begin cleaning up the code and adding improvements like a wysiwyg editor, additional mods, customizing the random graphics in the corner (it's buggy now. it'll be fixed for everyone, but subscribers will be able to customize theirs.), a real-time notification system, etc.. Many of these features will start out as subscriber only. As long as I can keep this site up it will be free, but in order to afford the time to work on these things I need to pull in subscribers or I end up up shit creek. Many seem to want me to do whacky micro-transactional features, as well. I'll see what I can come up with. I'll also be instituting a new xp/karma system for all, but we'll talk about that later.

If you would like to subscribe and help support my efforts you can do so here:
http://elisom.org/newsesubscription.php

The different plans will get you access to different levels of features, I haven't hashed all that out yet. I appreciate your patience. Silver will be minimal stuff. Gold will be the base plan. The Platinum will get you Gold plus the ability to gift the silver plan to members for each month you have it. Probably some other features like notifications too.

Bear with me, all this shit will really start up monday when I get back from Jacksonville.

For now though, feel free to do the usual rebuilding stuff. We're gonna need a new logo, taglines, mods maybe, preferred categories, and images for the random image on the left; 150px x 210px seems to be the standard. So someone find a link to an sp avatar creator ;) When I get back monday I'll grab the images you've posted and add them in. imgur links are fine for now.

You will notice that the comments are no longer so forgiving about what html you can post. This is to discourage SOME of the mayhem of the past. For now if you're trying to post a video you'll have to use embed code, iframes wont work. I'll be coming up with a work around for that.

edit: a BIG Thank You, to those that have contributed so far. I really appreciate it. I really think we can bring the community back to life and this is just the start of it :)

That's good, but I hope you'll go light on the client-side code. Using userscripts to pretty up things is Fun and Useful; also it's sometimes useful to be able to post javascript snippets but necessary to run a script blocker if others are posting such snippets. So integrated features that rely on client-side code will fail in such cases without an explicit exception to the blocker.
There are ways around this- for example, you could use a special subdomain for your client-side scripts which NoScript users could explicitly allow- but such workarounds need to be communicated 'twixt the users and thee.

I'm going to attempt to block out most user submitted javascript. If we need a timer or something for mafia or other games, I'll work with the community to come up with a work around. As someone who took advantage of the many of the holes SE had to offer, most users never knew just how vulnerable SE made them. Though, from what I hear, the A Friend account may have opened some eyes to that. I also use noscript, so I'll do my best to keep nonscript alternatives available as much as possible. But... I really would like to bring this site into whatever century we happen to be in ;)

The original Sensible Erection logo used the font Loki Cola, a knock-off of the Coca-Cola logo. Since it's a script font, the connectors don't always meet up in a pleasant way. Also, since it's an old free font it's kind of crap looking if you enlarge it.

Here's a SVG of just "Sensible Endowment" (no borders, shadows, or colors) with the font cleaned up and made to flow better:

Are you going to change the comment system so people can edit or delete their post? If nothing else i felt that the inabilty to change what you said both limited karma whoring and maid people think before thay posted. Will there be adds; and will subscribers be opted out of them? Being able to reset your pasword through your email would be nice. Are you working on restoring more ways of displaying post?

The 'users online' thing doesn't work either, right? I mean, it's pretty "sticky," unlike OSE. Not that everything has to be identical, but that was pretty nice: a pretty much real-time view of who was online.
machpi said @ 6:36am GMT on 26th Feb
Also, I just noticed the Message Centre doesn't keep the messages you send, just the ones you've received.

(I don't want these critiques to come across as whining. The overall gestalt of SE has been recreated lock stock and barrel, which is amazing. I just want to point out some things that may not have been noticed yet)
machpi said @ 6:46am GMT on 26th Feb
Last thing for now: I have a tremendous reluctance to 'subscribe' to anything (ie, have money taken out of an account on a regular basis). I have *no* qualm, however, with laying out some money in a lump and forgetting about it (as long as that lump isn't huge).

For instance, I paid those guys $75 for Wasteland 2 last year (or was it year before last?), and the thing still isn't out of Beta. And I probably won't care much for the game when it does come out. I just finished XCOM 2, barely, and I discover I have very little patience for that sort of turn-based game anymore.
Skuld said @ 6:23pm GMT on 26th Feb
Same here, in fact it is difficult due to the bank setup I have. I'd much appreciate the option of being able to donate to the cause rather than subscribing.
seneschal said @ 7:50pm GMT on 26th Feb
I don't mind subscribing or donating. I don't mind the subscription thing specifically, but I think we need to know more about stuff. I don't really want to subscribe until I know what's what with the subscription levels.

Will non-subscribers be allowed to post, comment and mod? I think without that basic functionality, it will be hard to attract new members, and we will lose some existing members who just don't have money to spare.

There are tons of other options for encouraging subscription without silencing voices, such as having ads be present for non-subscribers, or limiting non-subscribers to viewing and commenting on the most recent 20 posts. Having subscriber tags, expanded viewing options, color schemes etc.. as were present in scripts previously are all good ideas.

cb361 said @ 8:20pm GMT on 26th Feb
I think the crux is that if I correctly understand steele's present situation, he isn't in a financial position to run SE as a hobby. If he's going to invest time in SE instead of doing jobs on Mechanical Turk, SE needs to provide a reliable and sufficient income to compensate. People are not unwilling to do this I think, but for it to happen, we probably do need a bit of cajoling.

I mean, I never paid Marck a penny. I toyed with the idea of donating, but despite receiving a massive amount of value from SE, I never actually did anything about it. I dislike the [g] thing because it seems antithetical to the SE spirit, but it certainly keeps the issue of donating/subscribing in your face.

I would be even more against restricting SE rights based on subscription, but clearly something has to be done otherwise new SE will go the way of the old one. I agree that this is something that needs to be clarified and settled ASAP, otherwise the impetus to deal with it will be lost.
lalanda said @ 11:10pm GMT on 26th Feb
I have no concept of how much server fees are, etc. Or how many hours of input it will take to make this place functional and then in maintenance.

Is this subscription now here to cover costs of hosting and maintenance? Is this site trying to be a kind of collective? Or is it trying to be profitable for Steele?

I'm not sure whether it matters. What has Steele inherited? Some code and a couple of hundred users? I guess this is our alternative to SE, however I'd prefer it to be our best alternative rather than simply our first.

I'm not a subscriber on the internet in general, and I don't see myself paying more than I do for my usenet and vpn combined per month for added features, so I'm not "the customer". But will my user experience be diminished by the levels of membership? Will I feel not part of the club?

I realise the focus right now is just on getting this thing up and running and stable and I'm not ungrateful, but these thoughts come to mind. I also realise I have the freedom to opt out by not coming to this site, but I think most of us are here because SE went down and this one went up, not necessarily because this model was best.

machpi said @ 9:11pm GMT on 26th Feb
I did (as mentioned on another thread).

Since steele didn't get my message--apparently I can receive them, I can't send them--I'll just say here what I tried to say in that:

My proposal is to sift through the logins of old SE and reserve the ones that could conceivably still mean something to somebody. IE, go ahead and register and password them, and have a standing procedure to give them to the appropriate people if and when they show up, and can reasonably prove they are who they say they are.

I don't mean *me* doing that. I have neither the time nor the authority.

A huge *improvement* over OSE that would be nice is the ability to actually change one's own password from time to time.

Otherwise, cats laying down with dogs, etc.

I like to see where the loopholes are in a situation. SE had plenty of them, some obvious, others not. By talking about them out loud here, I'm hoping they go away as opposed to get ignored and hoping for the best.
steele said @ 9:15pm GMT on 26th Feb
Yeah, I didn't get that message. Don't do that. A bunch of unused logins is a pain in my ass. Especially when you go and use them, pissing everyone else off.

password changes will be coming. the messaging issue is fixed.
seneschal said @ 9:56pm GMT on 26th Feb
A few of us have decided to change our user names on new SE. I think I'm inclined to do the same, but I don't want to create a headache, and I'd rather people be able to find out who I was if they want to. What I was considering was just creating a new account, and then using the profiles so that anyone looking up spite48 as a user would be pointed to the new userid. Would you prefer that people not do this. or is there an alternative approach you'd prefer that people use?
steele said @ 10:05pm GMT on 26th Feb
I'm of two minds about it. I understand how you don't want others to be confused by two people with the same name but at the same time I'd say if you're done with the name then be done with the name and move on. Put it in your profile that you used to go by another name, but squatting on an old name you don't want anymore just seems kind of wasteful.

It's your call though, but what I don't need is a shit-ton of names reserved just in case people show up for them.
steele said @ 10:06pm GMT on 26th Feb

Eventually I last night Googled "what happened to sensible erection", in the hopes that someone posted it on a forum, and that, oddly, led me to Persephone's twitter account, but then secondly here.
