Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Proposal: Home Ec and Shop Class Groups

 

I’ve thinking about ways to make Ricochet more useful for members, particularly as a break from pure politics. We’re conservatives, not totalitarian Leftists. We have families, hobbies, and careers that are separate from politics. Besides, we have most of the political stuff already covered.

When I joined The Firing Line, I was impressed by how helpful people were and the tips they shared. We have actual firearms instructors and veterans, along with beginners like me and everyone in between. It’s generally focused on firearms, not even on the politics of firearms. It is highly recommended if you have an interest in firearms. That got me thinking – always a dangerous idea.

Over a year ago, on August 24, 2018, I volunteered to be a moderator, not knowing what to expect. Much like recently, it was in response to a Blue Yeti request. Moderators were a mysterious group, and I figured at the least I would have interesting stories after I got kicked out. Blue Yeti (View Comment): […]

Yes, you! You are corrupting and destroying conservatism, and need to go!

It seems the one thing conservatives can agree on is that we need purge the conservative movement of the other side. Trump supporters and opponents want to eliminate the opposing side for betraying conservative principles. Social Cons don’t trust the libertarians / squishy urban fiscal cons, while they see the social cons as backward theocrats. Race issues have one side calling the other either neo-Confederate racists or delusional egalitarians living in denial of reality. There are also conservatives who believe all Muslims are evil – these conservatives believe their opponents are dhimmis taken in by deception and, in turn, people condemn them as bigots willing to toss every Muslim in the same box as ISIS. Pro-police or anti-police? Immigration skeptic or proponent? Neocon or paleocon?

Notice: This is not official or in my capacity as a moderator. Ricochet is a fairly isolated experiment in attempting to create a civil conversation by gating the ability to comment (the forum) behind a paywall. As it is, Ricochet is a business largely driven by podcasts and the ad revenue generated by them, with […]

So I know what an Editor does, roughly (full-time paid cat herder), and I am fairly aware of what a Moderator does (Ricochet janitor) Blue Yeti is the Podcast Production Poobah and Max is the Moxieful Metadata Maintenance Mechanic. What does a Contributor do? I understand that we have columnists here like Mona Charen or […]

How can Ricochet users get the most out of Ricochet moderation? That’s a question many users seem to have, and [email protected] is a key part of the answer. The [email protected] account is a joint account shared by all the Ricochet moderators and administered by Ricochet super-admin, Max Ledoux. This account also ties directly into Ricochet’s […]

I noticed that Simplisafe decided to jump on the progressive, anti-Second Amendment bandwagon. I am very glad I never gave them business. I believe Ricochet should avoid doing business with companies that want to make a political statement against the NRA and the second amendment. Thankfully, it appears Simplisafe is not a current sponsor. I […]

I wanted to set up a thread to figure out how we can find a way to end the recent Ricochet feud. Much like its military counterpart, this negotiation is done under the banner of truce. Please take extra care on the CoC. This is actually two separate conflicts rolled into one, but I figure […]

I am familiar with the practice of leaving out the o in the word G-d by some Jewish writers. I believe it relates to the idea of never erasing the name of G-d, and there are apparently rituals for disposing of documents with the Hebrew tetragrammaton on them. (It may also be related to the […]

I recently started a conversation on the site which was picked up for the main feed. It was edited, and I am grateful it got a looking at by someone. I wanted to take a moment to thank whomever did the editing. Thank you, editors of Ricochet. More

How often does this happen to you? I spend twenty minutes writing and refining a few paragraphs, if not more, in a comment to a fellow Member’s post. Then I finally realize that I’m wrong, or too ignorant on the subject, or for one of a million other reasons decide to delete everything I’ve just […]
