Well I can see this being a major problem. First off who defines this? Second one of the major advantages of the SAFE network is so that you can bypass “jurisdiction” and post whatever content you want. Third there’s a nice debate going over things like hentai, lolicon, and just artistic expression in general. Does rape play porn get banned because it’s obscene and violent? Does a 3D printed kayak of a woman’s vagina get banned (no seriously a girl in Japan made one of those, it’s awesome but weird and yes it did get banned and she did get charged for it I believe) get banned because there are people that consider it obscene? Do we censor hentai like they do in Japan or leave it uncensored like they do in the rest of the world? Why on earth do people find a beheading such a big deal you watch much more graphic stuff for ENTERTAINMENT! But the point is: Why are you bending knee to governments and why do you assume that this is something settled when the whole advantage of the SAFE network is people can actually have an UNCENSORED internet? We build an uncensored and DECENTRALIZED internet and you want to reintroduce censorship with “Term of Service” and “community moderators”? Facebook and Google much? Are you kind of missing the point here of the SAFE network? Screw the home owners association if they’re going to dictate how I can build my house or who I can sell to.
If that’s the case why do you need moderators and terms of service? Make a decision. Filters or moderators. Having both doesn’t make sense and is also a waste of resources. I’d opt for filters.
So how are you not Facebook, Google or the conventional internet?
Yes, it conflicts and what you said here makes absolutely no sense. Though I’d say Likes, like Shares, should go towards earning seeds not cost seeds since one is performing a service by reviewing content. Better yet have an actual rating system like on amazon or something. So instead of just liking stuff give it a star count or go from red (bad) to green (good) something to indicate quality and be a quick review of content.
Not on the SAFE network it’s not. You seem to be implying you’ll attempt to mix your clearnet site with the SAFE network. This is not only technically impossible as the SAFE network does not communicate with the clear network but is also a security risk. Why would someone on the SAFE network risk their security by using your app if their data will be exposed by you posting it on the website. Why would one need a VPN on a decentralized encrypted internet?
Also it’s not impossible for any website to keep it’s users anonymous. duckduckgo.com does it, Startpage.com does it. Any search engine offering anonymous search results offers anonymity to some degree. You’re right a VPN would help, so does end to end encryption. But wait isn’t that what a decentralized internet is for? So why are you using the clear net?
From what you’ve described so far you’re just creating another online store that happens to use cryptocurrency.
You must be American. They have this thing where the customer calculates their own taxes on goods and services. Everywhere else the store includes the taxes in the price. If I order something on Amazon my final subtotal INCLUDES the taxes. So no I would NOT expect it to be my responsibility to calculate the taxes on whatever I bought. Especially considering it’s the SELLER who is ultimately going to be paying sales tax. As an artist yes, but I’d still imagine that there should be some inferstructure in the software to help with vendor options like that as if one is selling a great deal of art one is essentially starting up their own litle online store. And given your emphasis on jurisdiction taxes seem to be part and parcel.
You interest level isn’t my concern. How you code your software and the socio-economic and political implications thereof are. Everything I’ve been talking about DOES relate directly to n99. Do you need me to make you a flow chart?
Let me make this simple. Moderators suck. Moderators = government. The whole advantage to n99 is allowing for decentralized anonymous art to be published. But the more you talk about using the clear net the less advantageous n99 is because it loses the advantage of decentralized encrypted anonymous internet. We started this whole conversation talking about piracy and copyright. But copyright is pointless especially on a decentralized encrypted internet. It’s pointless on the regular internet but it’ll be utterly useless on the SAFE network. Then you start talking about your community as a social network and I point out the problems with opposing viewpoints and your first thought is moderators and censorship. But people came to the SAFE network to GET AWAY from censorship and moderators. So the audience for n99 on the SAFE network will largely be people who want nothing to do with moderators or terms of service because that is exactly what they’re trying to get away from. Your stated goal is oppose corporations but right now you’re doing everything corporations do. You’re moderating content like Google and Facebook, you’re unable to keep people from pirating the content posted to the network which effectively means you’re vunerable to the same thing corporations are. But what bothers me is you aren’t clearly defining your terms. Like “jurisdiction” or who is “we” that’s writing your terms and service? Where is this “community discussion” you keep mentioning?
Perhaps you should look into how Silk road functions. If people can ship illegal drugs from point a to b surely you can figure out how to ship art from a to b reliably either directly or through some third party escrow service. Either way I don’t think there is a reliable risk that some random aanonymous person will take my money and not send me any product. An escrow service and reputation system of some kind would reduce this risk.
Please try to remember that SAFE is not ebay.
Here is a question, a very pertinent question. Is n99 a SAFE web app/program or is it a clearnet web app? It cannot be both, or at the very least the two communities will be separate. There are those on SAFE who will not go on the clearnet. There are those on the clear net who will not go on SAFE. So which is it? What are you doing?
Now one could argue that they don’t want terrorist videos or child porn on n99 because they lack artistic merit or even because one doesn’t want to fund terrorists or pedophiles. But there is much porn that lacks artistic merit and many who would see it banned outright. Nevermind political videos or activism. Anything that challenges the status quo or powers that be ends up getting censored. Proof of this is in all the sites Google is attempting to censor which have nothing to do with “offensive content”.
If you base membership on n99 on real world jurisdiction then you are endorsing and prejudice. It’s all fun and games to hate pedophiles and terrorists but how about a woman in Saudi Arabia creating content and speaking out against female oppression? How about a gay activist that could be killed? How about an atheist or heretic who would definitely be killed in such countries? How about someone in Taiwan that spoke out against the monarchy? See by basing n99 on jurisdictional laws you are banning people for political dissent. Not every country in the world even remotely respects free speech and those that play lip service to it find ways around it.
