I'm getting more and more concerned about the lack of letting new people sign up, but moreso the lack of information on both why this is the case and how long it will be the case. I personally care because I planned to try and get some more creators on here to add to the content, but found that was not possible at this time. The only statements I can find on the problem is a user @malkavian saying that Ryan told him they would be back up next week. This was unfortunately 4 weeks ago as of this writing.
So what gives? How can this platform grow when it is quickly turning into just a handful of participants? There is a critical mass for any platform, and the growth of this one has been nipped in the bud and there is zero communication on when that will be remedied. No wonder this is quickly turning into a den of people spamming and begging. There's no way for real content creators to join in and provide some actual content to rise above all that.
Ryan posted a youtube about solving the on-boarding problem with the moneybutton. Well let's see if we can solve the problem of on-boarding people onto yours.org.

How about implementing a filter / block function so the user can weed out all the gross e-begging posts?
Nobody wants to visit a site where it's all posts about gross things, cancers, super sick people. etc.
Sorry that I'm not politically correct.

@sken, I think it would be enough to allow downvotes (paid of course) and allow more good content to drown out the crap. I'm not a fan of a benevolent dictator decreeing which content stays or goes. I think the market can handle it. But a working market needs a critical mass of users, the creation of which has stalled with end of new sign ups.

@sken so much for being in favor of censorship resistance, aye? You show you have double standards and hypocrisy and lack of empathy.

e-begging is a problem. This is a social problem, not a technical problem. Usually it is harder to solve.
Ryan can't do it alone, Reddit have moderators for content management. The problem with moderators is that they will have the ability to censor content
In terms of solution, banning posts would be censorship, so that isn't a solution. If there was more useful content (in terms of volume), it would push the e-begging posts to the bottom where it isn't even seen.
TLDR: Quit donating to the e-begging posts, that would be the best current solution

@the_snowball, first of all, begging is not a problem, it is a symptom and result of actual problem, which is existing economic system and complete corruption of the state. You and someone else asking to ban this shows you don't care about censorship, which is in complete opposition to what Bitcoin system is about, yet you surely love to brag how you love censorship resistance... or maybe you don't, but you care about yourself only, which is another symptom and effect of the same economic system called Capitalism because people are brainwashed to be cold complicit with horrible things both the fucked capitalist system and the corrupt states, create non stop. If you don't have a heart, don't call yourself human.
I would love to see all of you in these people's shoes, see how you live, react and what you will talk about and say, I am sure your tune would change. I help some of them (I can't help everyone) and I try to set an example, and not be a narrow minded (insert insult here) as some of you are.
PS: Do you know what psychopath is? No? Go look it up, and while you're at it, look at sociopath also, as it is very similar to psychopath just that its creation of society, which is again, the fucked up exploitative capitalist economic system. Seems none of you understand what it actually is, seems all of you are brainwashed by the propaganda narrative of the people who thought of and use this system. To me, its very clear what RULE of the system is and what EFFECTS of it are, while you seem to take the effect and use it as a rule, which is why you don't understand a damn thing about it.
