Yes, I am conducting a little experiment. “Disclaimer: Unless mentioned by name there is no real or inference, referring to anyone on this site, real or fictional.” I am not referring to anyone here I am providing my own example of what I see and how I understand it.
This original post as written below had 141 Views. (Thank you I appreciate that.) It had 26 comments at the time I am doing the edit. Now if all we are concerned about is views and comments. The thing I am going to do is focus on that for that on this post for a while. Maybe I am not putting the good of the site first or perhaps I am. Perhaps I have had it all wrong. Maybe commenting on my own work is somehow good for the site?
It would be great if anyone notices or reads this and takes the time to comment on it. I feel like we are all still wandering around in the forest and the admins haven’t left us any crumbs, and the rest of us are tossing them all over.
So welcome to my experiment. I hope we all learn something valuable!
I know it is scary when I feel like I must share an opinion and today I must. I am prepared for you to tell me I am totally wrong in a kind and loving way! I love all the work Doc does to help us try and understand and improve our experience on the site. I read the latest one through again and something just “bugged me”. It was nothing that Doc said or did it was something “we” voted on.
Q: WE SHOULD GET 1 VIRIL FOR UPVOTES?Yes (15 votes) – 68%No (7 votes) – 32%
You don’t even have to open a post and read it to put an upvote. You could simply go tromping up and down the page doing this all day long. The only reason I even see to have the up and down vote is on posts where you use them to change the order (ranked posts and very few even know how to use that.) Now that seems like an opening for trolls (the new kind I learned about, not the ones I collected.)
My heroes are the seven people who thought it through and voted No to a viril for an upvote or downvote for that matter. I truly hope they never make the mistake of giving us a viril for an upvote. That is simply my opinion.
I think most people use it as a bookmark to note that they looked at a post.
So what do you think about edited posts now?
