    As thread ignores exist and can potentially suppress the DYT forum from your own view, and Discord muting allows you to not get noted from a channel, I feel the DYT opt-in should be removed.

    @kiror would the same be able to happen to VFA opt-in, or would it require a lot of coding and be forced to the backburner if it was considered?

    Depending on the amount of popularity this suggestion has, it may be implemented for Defending Your Territory.

    As far as the adult opt-in, this would not be considered.

    I don't see the point in removing it myself. Having it opt-in reinforces the fact it can get heated and contains sensitive topics and that is has more relaxed moderation compared to other forums.Having is separated is a good idea.

    https://www.kinmunity.com/threads/specific-rules-for-defending-your-territory.1174 I think the sticky should be enough. If not, perhaps a description rewrite is in order. An opt-in prevents new members from being able to see that DYT exists, and may post debates outside of DYT, especially since the opt-in is effectively hidden by obscurity.

    This would be a rewrite of the final rule when the DYT opt-in:

    And we all know how useful stickies are and how many people read them looks at scent rolling. It's noted accessibly in their account options so anyone that hasn't joined just to start a debate will notice it. It was made opt-in for a reason and I don't see a good enough one to remove it currently.

    To Hyphero's point, might there be a way to make the opt-in more obvious?

    We have made the opt-in process more obvious. Currently, if you're not opted in you will see the following link in DYT's place:

    Clicking it will bring you to a page which explains the opt-in process.
