Why "Cassy"?

Cassandra is an ancient Greek figure who foretold great doom, yet no one believed her, though tragically she was always correct.

"Cassandra is a mouthful, Cassy is better," said /u/AmericanMuskrat, unfairly banished (and restored), exemplifying the need to evolve beyond the limitations of SaidIt. The shorter name is also reflective of the Lemmy platform, a federated decentralized Reddit-like forum.

Current SaidIt issues

SaidIt was a news aggregation forum for truth-seeking and free-thinking, but its issues have festered as a refuge for those banned from Reddit (good, bad, and ugly), and the stagnant, uninspired, and absent management has allowed the site to forum-slide into nasty chaos on par with Voat, Poal, and 4Chan.

Current Cassy priorities

1) Discuss ethical social management ideas: goals, manifestos, fair forums, rules, community guidelines, protocols template sets, access, anonymity, security, self-regulation, defense against spam, sealioning, & STABs (shills, trolls, & bots), backups, public relations strategies, priorities, to-do-lists, etc.

2) Discuss decentralized/distributed platform/client options and their pros and cons.

3) Discuss set up, trouble shooting, technical issues, assistance, administration, moderation, etc + customising the flow, form (GUI), and functionality.

4) Discuss anon solutions. All things related to being anonymous (or not), building bonds, and maintaining trust with reasonable cyber-hygiene security precautions - without giving anything away.

We hope SaidIt, other forums, & developers might freely chime in &/or adopt some of these open good ideas from these hopeful & wishful discussions to improve life & liberty & fairness.

Help plan our next steps beyond SaidIt.

Cassy is for discussing decentralized forum/fora options, federation vs distribution, & planning our community's next steps.

We obviously have problems, but we're working on solutions.

/s/Cassy should not be confused with the vapourware development in /s/PhoenixForum for dreaming our hypothetical our next-generation forum's ideals, form, & functions.
