    Re: People running contests/events: Do you want contest/event forum OPEN during con?

    Nikita requested the Forum Meet forum be open during Defcon, and that make a lot of sense. This is a post to remind me to make sure the Forum Meet forum is left open during Defcon.

    Also, roll out Drunken Banter,

    Also, make sure rides/room sharing is open, so people sharing rides/rooms can reach each other if they actually used that forum to make arrangements.

    What else?

    People running contests or events:
    Do you want the forum associated with your contest open during Defcon?

    Every year that we have had the forums open for con, we alter the controls to restrict access to some spaces, even turning off access to post content. We also roll out "Drunken Banter" to allow anyone (including users that have just signed up) to post there without enforcing a waiting period. The rest of the forums often get closed during con, or get access restrictions. We also increase the minimum time between searches and increase the minimum time between posts to decrease risks associated with both. There are other things we do, too, which are not disclosed.

    So, for each forum for each contests/event you leaders/organizers... do you want to have the forum for you event open during Defcon?

    A cost of this is that open forums may get messy with spam, or unexpected behavior while mods are not enforcing rules. We'll clean up messes after we get back.

    Please reply to this to let me know if you want a contest/event forum open during Defcon.

    Thanks!
Working...
