Civilised Discourse

We seek high level design which can facilitate PubHubs hubs in encouraging appropriate discussion and discouraging unwanted behaviours.

This design will include a set of features, some of which may be classified as:

  • positive (encouraging desired behaviours)
  • negative (moderation or damage control)

We study the open-source forum software "Discourse" because it is respected for its successful approach.
