There are good ideas here that I hope we will eventually implement in the future.But as @Goon_mog said, we need to build back up almost from scratch.
The old moderation team are now no longer present here. I don’t know the details of what happened there but all I know is that I am here now. And I am going to do my best to bring new members and life to Youth Debates.
It is a testament to the potential of this forum that, even after everything that has happened, we still have a (admittedly small) community here. I intend to build on that.
A few days ago I started by deleting all the spam and banning the bots/spammers. I am still in the process of getting to grips with everything here but I am always happy to hear suggestions from YD members (I have changed the title of this thread and pinned it to reflect this).
