The purpose of Openbook is to create a platform that can channel the collective voice of humanity, shielded by anonymity, and propagated through multiplicity and decentralization, to allow an ongoing unstoppable flow of truth.
Of course, this truth will always come along with the lies, the lulz, the trolls, and the psy-ops of the dark forces, but this is the mission of Openbook: to #keepthep0rtalsopen💬, and maintain the openness that the Internet originally introduced to humanity before "skynet" started to funnel humanity into the mind prison upheld by the combination of identity-driven social media and government-sponsored totalitarian surveillance programs.

“Look man, we'd probably most of us agree that these are dark times, and stupid ones, but do we need fiction that does nothing but dramatize how dark and stupid everything is? In dark times, the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements of what's human and magical that still live and glow despite the times' darkness. Really good fiction could have as dark a worldview as it wished, but it'd find a way both to depict this world and to illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it.”

We use hashtags wisely on the #openbook💬 of ~camp.
This means we use hashtags sparingly, and only when they indicate precisely what the post is about.
Do not use a new hashtag if there is an existing hashtag that you could use in it's place. You can browse pre-existing hashtags at the top of the search page. Only use a new hashtag after giving it some thought.
Keep in mind that a wiki page is automatically generated for every hashtag we use on here, so if you use a new hashtag be prepared to write the initial wiki page for it, to provide a worthwhile definition, and give the rest of us some guidance on how to use it. You can get to the wiki page by clicking the little word bubble just to the right of any hashtag.
To mention a hashtag without tagging your own post with it, use @ instead of #. This helps us stay organized by allowing us refer to a topic or operation without labeling our post as a part of the topic or operation. That way, when people search for a topic, casual mentions of the topic won't show up in the search results.
Finally, to help categorize posts for the human eye, the very last line of any post should be just 2 or 3 hashtags which most accurately describe the post, with the first hashtag being the broadest topic, and the last hashtag being the most specific to the post.
