Making our site better!

I’ve had lots of great conversations and want to thank everyone – the community has responded to the change by making a considerable effort to comment more! I committed and will continue to return the comments of everyone that feedback, and I will go out of my way to make sure I comment on the posts of others when I read them. Change is never easy, and it is fantastic to see the community pulling together.

Based on our exceptional community, I am going to do what I can do to help! One of the things that have worked, and we’ve gotten responses from the Admin team (by recognizing changes), is doing what you would like to see in our platform going forward. Based on that, I will continue to post the questions about things authors want to see. We have a few that are outstanding. I am reminding everyone that voting yes or no is wholly your choice. But authors ask for various things, and that is ok. There are no right or wrong answers, and let’s be civil about the asks. If you have a high point about one of the things that have been asked in the past, please feel free to add the end but remember the human.

As a reminder of the power of our community, some of the  requested change we have made is listed below:

  • Remove the downvote button on the comments!
  • Ability to block a user (we can argue this one)
  • Edit function for posts (I know granted then removed)
  • Permanently removing reported comments

We are a robust community when we work together! Vote for as many of these as you think are critical!

    The ability to completely block a user

    • Yes
    • No
  • Question of

    the ability to upload images larger than 8 megs

    • Yes
    • No
  • Question of

    The ability to report a comment without the reported user being able to report 2 or more of your comments in retaliation

  1. Now that my Internet is more stable in the past few days than the last month and a half, I think I could spend more time here now.

    As for your questions, I think it would be better to upload a smaller-sized image than large ones. It would help maintain the speed of the site.

  4. We will slowly get used to these changes. I miss better communication and would be glad if the edit button came back. I’ve never used other features (blocking, reporting comments …).

  5. One thing here really stands out to me. No wait, two things. First I love the way you said “our” site. If we think of it that way then I believe we will make an effort to take care of it better. The second thing was all the tags you had up there. I really need to learn more about how, when, and which ones I should be adding. (In case you run out of things to teach me Doc!)
