Making writing sites better – the poll to be sent to the Admins!

I threw something in yesterday, my apologies – the phrase a seagull is an IT project thing. The seagull is a bird. In the IT world, a seagull swoops in leaves something and then flies away. Sometimes the seagull leaves an offering that is kind and giving. Mostly, at least the seagull here on this site, it isn’t very nice. It is in fact “sincere” crap. My apologies for using an IT phrase. I forgot to include the definition of the words.

Give me 200 random comments on my posts! those I love. Seagulls are welcome to stay away.

It’s funny in the IT world we have many of those. I have shared some of them in the past.

Today after 22 minutes of effort, I have created the new poll. You can vote yes on any number of these questions. But please only select this one is critical to me on two poll items or one. Don’t hold back if there are additional things you think would help the site, please place those in the comments.

  1. Please include in the comments what your most critical voices were.
  2. I will be subtracting all none commented criticals before I send this to the admins (some ghosts vote, but who swear they don’t read my posts)!
  3. So no comment with your first critical choice, then I remove those votes. I am sorry for striping the anonymity of the polls, but it is essential to put names with the things that are critical to authors here.

I heard an interesting thing from another author. One of the writers on this site, I will give that person the nickname site royalty, says there are too many messages being sent to the admin. While I acknowledge the self-appointed royal has to a viewpoint, they do not have the right to make other people feel bad or tell them what to do; the royal has done that a few times.

So, please send as many messages as you deem you have time to the admins.

Note – we need to start our please moderate posts email barrage again. It seemed to work the first time, but we haven’t had anything published since that initial blast.

  2. This one: “THE RETURN OF THE EDIT BUTTON WITH LIMITS (EDITED POSTS ARE NEW WITH NO BUMP FOR OLD VIEWS AND COMMENTS)” Is the most critical one. I don’t like the WTF button and my pet hate, is when articles written 2 or more years ago, coming from an otherwise inactive page is frequently featured on the trending page, so, this item comes in as a close second choice: “CHANGE THE MOST COMMENTED AND TRENDING LIST TO SHARE THE BEST STORIES FROM EACH CATEGORY?

  3. Nothing is supercritical to me. I just write here.

    You had no “no” buttons there, so I skipped a few questions.

    I would like some things to be better, but I would not use the word ‘critical’ to describe this.

    I do have another article seated on its waiting chair for 6 days now, so I guess that one about faster moderation, is my highest priority item there.

    Helium, a past writing site, had a forum, where writers, and Admin interacted. That sounds a bit like your “site editorial board”, which seems too fancy a title to me.

  4. I chose #1 and #2 as the most critical at this point. Great poll by the way. I know the time it can take to get these done correctly. The self-appointed royal phrase has me rolling on the floor. That is a good one. And I see you have some good ratings so far here. 🙂 I think one of the reaction buttons should go away.
