With the SERIOUS tag being carried out we at the moment are beginning to see some severe discussions happen within the sub. Whereas severe tagged posts are supposed to be held to the next degree of content material customary this isn’t the best to reasonable, after a while the upper degree dialogue does appear to make its approach to the highest of a put up, however whenever you scroll down generally it’s laborious to inform that it was tagged as a severe dialogue.
Typically harmless however pointless and generic feedback make their method in, which generally get eliminated, however not all the time. Feedback reminiscent of “Nice put up OP” “That is the kind of content material we should always see extra of” while harmless in nature don’t really contribute to dialogue and find yourself getting upvoted just because it’s of constructive sentiment.
Due to this, after a few days some SERIOUS discussions look no totally different to common posts.
Contemplating feedback inside severe posts are eligible for as much as 4x karma, I feel it’s vital to keep up a degree of content material customary.
I suggest implementing the requirement that every one father or mother or top-level feedback to require 100 characters minimal, else be routinely eliminated by Automoderator.
Protecting in thoughts, Critical discussions aren’t a spot for easy FAQ’s or generic statements anyway, it shouldn’t be tough to achieve 100 characters in a remark in response to the unique put up.
It is usually the poster who’s requesting that their put up include extra in depth dialogue fairly than brief generic responses.
This transformation would solely influence father or mother or top-level feedback. This enables anybody who has a brief however related inquiries to concisely ask if they should as a toddler remark or inside remark chains.
The two most important professionals I can see are;
* Serving to cut back moderator workload by having automod take away of numerous low high quality feedback
* Serving to reinforce the idea that severe discussions are meant for precise dialogue
The two most important cons I can see are;
* Customers can simply add filler phrases to achieve 100 characters
* Customers can nonetheless add brief feedback that do not essentially add to dialogue beneath father or mother feedback
*For context, 100 characters is definitely attained, in truth this sentence incorporates 110 characters excluding areas and formatting*
And for last readability this alteration is **solely to use to SERIOUS tagged posts** and keep in mind that it’s the poster who’s requesting their put up be marked as SERIOUS dialogue.
