"PH is like my real family: I know I'm related but disavow all knowledge." " shame on you far hanging there(paleo hacks). That place is an intelectual black hole ;0)" Do you think the site is full of i-holes?, and if how can it be made... (more)
I realize I'm opening myself up to some potentially embarrassing answers here, but is it possible to lose badges on PH? And if so, why? I've looked all over the site and can find no info on this. But a few months ago, I had 6 bronze and 1 silver.... (more)
Based on personal experience, I know you don't lose your bronze badge after you received 10 upvotes and then subsequently get down voted to 9 upvotes on a question you have asked. I don't know about other badges or situations, just the one... (more)
After reading the recent post about "Why are you so stingy with your upvotes?" I realized that there are quite a few people out there who may not know how to maximize their Paleohacks.com experience. This also includes the ever-present issue... (more)
Paleohacks is a participatory site. If you truly believe something is offensive or counter to the FAQ of this site, please flag it. If you have enough points, you can vote to close a question. The moderators are different people with all sorts of... (more)
In trying to keep up with oak0y's question: http://paleohacks.com/questions/60775/is-it-possible-to-make-upvotes-less-easymeta ... I've noticed that every time it goes to -5 or more, it's no longer viewable from the PaleoHacks main board, but it's... (more)
This is a question and answer site, all posts are expected to be questions. Your friendly mod will turn it into a question if they can or close/delete it if they can't. If you merely wish to share a friendly article/rant/etc. without posing a... (more)
For a guideline, let's snitch an old Miss Manners suggestion and make the dinner party three males and three females to facilitate interesting conversation. So, who are you inviting, what paleo food would you like them to bring, and what are we... (more)
What place does political discussion have on PaleoHacks? Does eating Paleo pre-dispose one to lean any one way on PaleoHacks? Melissa: I am bumping this again because I've seen several political questions today.
My favorite aspect of this site is the informed debate that goes on here. Because of the format of the site, most of this goes on in the comments to a question or answer, as it would be difficult to follow the thread of differently voted answers.... (more)
I was just curious as I noticed a while back that upvoted comments no longer seemed to have an impact on rep. What's the total personal rep threshold, if any, for earning reputation points via upvoted comments? P.S. I skimmed the FAQ for this... (more)
We have a ridiculous number of upvotes to use every day, yet I see popular questions that haven't broken ten votes, with dozens of answers unsorted by voting. If a thread is interesting enough for me to click through to, I'll upvote it. If there... (more)
I like to read PaleoHacks questions as they are published - when they come to my Google Reader stream in my PC or my smartphone. If you have an RSS reader ("blog reader") or reader app that you like, simply plug http://paleohacks.com/feeds into... (more)
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check to see which badges I might be able to get today. I yearn for the reputation needed to flag a post, not caring if it's offensive or not. I have no idea what a rollback is, but I want it... (more)
What is the name of the software that PaleoHacks uses? I've seen it other places and am curious. Has anyone else had differences in the their points not being updated? For the most part, I could care less about these point things (though I do... (more)
I posted an inquiry about DIY fecal transplant, attached a study called "Success of Self-Administered *Home* Fecal Transplantation for Chronic Clostridium difficile Infection" and got closed with "this is in "see a doctor territory". The whole... (more)
Okay, so science vs. pseudoscience is something I care passionately about, and I expect at least some PHers to feel similarly. (Or maybe not... lol.) So here is my general gut instinct on how PH should handle pseudoscience: if you post a question... (more)
I recognize full well that this could be viewed as a highly subjective question. Everyone has their own opinion and perspective. Rock on. But from what I'm observing in the voting patterns with regards to questions specifically, it seems that the... (more)
What are some of the questions, or answers to questions, that you think users new to the site could profit most from looking at? Not to discourage new users from asking questions specific to their own needs, but to address general needs.
Babies and Pregnancy: "Introducing solid foods." "Does a fetus want mommy to eat carbs?" "Is it wrong to ignore the requests of a pregnant wife?" "Do you make special requests of people bringing you food for support (as in illness, new baby,... (more)
I'm thoroughly frustrated by a recent rash of downvotes for no discernible reason. Don't agree with my answer, fine, but man up and explain why. Maybe we can all learn something from it? It's ridiculous that downvoting is so easy to do,... (more)
We've already seen some general paleo resolutions, but I would like to see your resolutions that specifically relate to PaleoHacks. Here are mine, for starters. I resolve: 1) not to get "before-and-after envy" because everyone else has more... (more)
How's this? If I ponder a question enough to respond to it, I plan to upvote it.
Some of you must be wondering this by now, given that I have had to edit/delete a few questions/comments by some of of you or suspend or delete you. So what is up?
We occasionally get some non-paleo trolls round here like Freelea of fruitarian fame or those just interested in knocking the paleo diet. These are not curious people who are non-paleo or non-paleos (like WAPFers) interested in paleo subjects,... (more)
