Adding to list below:
- It likely would be helpful to cut down on unnecessary chafe in
replies by avoiding reminding us that "it's Mark's business"
or that "Mark can implement a #Suggestion (or not) as he sees
fit," or that "Mark can decide whether a #Suggestion will
benefit enough members," and so on and so forth.
It's intuitively obvious that Mark can do whatever he wants - we
neither need to be reminded nor do we need to remind others.
I have most often seen this as a response to criticism. If we cut
down on that, I think much of this sort of comment will be
Here is a prior msg to Mark (just copied verbatim so forgive
my not fine-tuning it) when we had been discussing the "new" beta
group back in Jan 2020. Could we use this as a jumping-off point
for interested-others to add to and suggest guidelines to Mark he
could fine tune to whatever will help him the most?
Will you be publishing guidelines - specifically referring to what
is most helpful to you and want to see added (or refrained from)
re: discussion of a #suggestion. Some thoughts if
you decide to go that route:
- "I agree" and "me too" be forever banned (unless Beta is
intended to be a popularity poll.) "LIKE" works.
Like does not work in email in either direction: I cannot like a
post by email and I do not see likes in my email. I for one, almost
never use the web interface and I do not believe I am unique in
- "No one will use
that" - no one has enough foresight to definitively predict what
the average user (or non-average) will or will -
- "That would cause a mess" or "cause more confusion than now" or
"can't be implemented" or ..... similar type replies.
- For the most part "opinions" have little value and add to
unnecessary chaff on Beta. Everyone has one and every one (just
as everyone) is as valid as another.
- "Fact-based" - discussions/additions/clarifications that are
fact-based and add to understanding or clarification (or forbid
improvement) of someone else's suggestion, not leading to needing
to defend one's opinions (rather than presenting or clarifying
facts,) which adds tons of chaff.
The rest of these seem good.
