This is the current Groupthink Invite Thread. Please read the entire post before requesting authorship privileges.
Groupthink is a place for Jezzies to hang out and talk in their own open forum, same as always. I know that there has been a lot of discussion about the purpose of GT in light of Kinja changes and the mainpaging of GT articles. Let me be clear: we cannot 'stop' the Gawker network from crossposting posts that appear here. There is no way for us to opt out of that. Part of what you agreed to by signing up for a Kinja account is the crossposting option.
However, we are not a content farm for the mainpage. Groupthink is an open community. Its tone and purpose, such as it is, is directed by you, the readers, commenters, and authors. We have room here for fluffy posts about kitten names, academic essays, personal essays, and gif parties and everything in between. It is what you make of it. And you get out of it what you put into it.
I must repeat: this is open community, find-able and readable by anyone on the internet. This is not a safe space community.
We have certain rules about posting and expected behavior on the forum. You can read the guidelines here, in the Guide to Commenting on Groupthink. Read them before you request authorship access. Additions to those rules, as well as discussions about our policies, can be found under the 'mod talk' tag.
