Generic Forum Meta Discussion pt 2 (Thoughts, Improvements, Suggestions?)


#41

Getting them to do that is pretty fucking easy


#42

We do like to operate as a ruthlessly effective team.


#43

It doesn’t go away as it isn’t smart enough to know what is considered a response to why the mods were @'d but we don’t mind anyway, there’s a clear button, and it’s useful to have a quick check anyway.


#44

Agreed

Ehhhh


#45

Can we make this discussion a quarterly thing instead of once a year?

Inb4 monthly
No, that’s too much


#46

Well, didn’t we have this in February? Not quite quarterly, but damn close.


#47

I don’t have to scroll to get this, the circle on the bottom right is for notification setting for the thread.


#48

I couldn’t care less about badges but maybe they do something? For someone?

If you want to be silly you could make a badge-badge so that you earn a badge when you earn your first badge.

Because badge. Or something.


But more importantly I would like to see less locking of threads overall.
Especially the ones that are actually moving.


#49

Sure. How’s March 31st?


#50

We don’t lock threads that are moving unless they get excessively toxic.


#51

If a thread has momentum and isn’t a total shit-show, it shouldn’t be locked. I agree. But most of the time they turn into total shit-shows.

If you find a topic that needs to be continued or isn’t toxic, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be unlocked if asked, as it was probably locked by accident or just some misjudgment.


#52

Beautiful end for all of this :smirk:


#53

Just press m and the topic gets muted instantly.

I have done this so many times on accident.

1]
I mentioned this awhile ago, maybe last year. Maybe discourse has changed enough to get a preview of the topic when hovering over the thread title? I waste a lot of time looking at threads I have no interest in. Sure, I can hit “dismiss all” but then I’m afraid I’ll miss out on an interesting thread that has a bad or misleading title.

2]
When I glanced at the updated discourse thread one of the options was to bring a returning reader to the first thread instead of the last read post. I like that idea in threads that are teaching something or where items or lists have changed over time.


#55

This could be left for the lounge, but i liked the hate thread that @noenken made, and if we could have a praise thread that would be cool too.

I’m sure we would all like to have a public place to gloat and to share our anger with.

If not the hate thread the gloat thread should totally be considered to be birthed.


#56

Can you make @ mods work too for the lazy


#57

Pretty sure you all saw this, but I cant move my post so here is a screenshot

#58

the @ moderators tag only mentions moderators, not Leaders. We’re evaluating our options for Leaders, because @trust_level_4 is the Leader tag, which is not easy.

Additionally, We’ll evaluate enabling @ mods as an alias or something.

I’m not entirely sure how much work is required to make all of this happen, so I don’t want to guarantee anything.


#59

Is there a reason I cant see all the groups by default
image
Is all I see so knowing that @ moderators is a group is not something you would know as a random new user

It shows up on the
https://forum.level1techs.com/groups/
page again something that new people would probably not know to look at


#60

Not entirely sure.

I’ve got the same thing on my end.
