Hey guys! Just wanted to throw this out there - the afflatus always welcomes content, including other ideas not on the main list. Like you could submit a recipe, write a book review, write up some coding tips, share a neat thread you found, etc! And we will give you points for it too! We LOVE when people submit ideas for content and I have been loving the prompt ideas we get!

I wonder if people would like to see the submissions to the anon box maybe? I already see a pattern in what people have brought up and I imagine members would like to know that others had the same thought, however some submissions have been very inappropriately rude so far, so i’m not sure..

You can share the normal messages somewhere? Also it's a shame people are being very rude in the anon box. I'd like to see what people think.

Lost a couple of pieces when
I carried it, carried it, carried it home
I'm afraid of all I am
My mind feels like a foreign land
Silence ringing inside my head
Please, carry me, carry me, carry me home

    • ^^ agreed with the above. it might be nice to see what the calmer people are saying. or if possible, edit the rude messages down to something that shows the points they were trying to make?
      or if that isn't possible, give us the main points that everyone is giving so we at least know what is being concerned over and what isn't.

Part of me thinks the rude ones should be posted but without replies, or omitted with a note as to why. I don’t know. I don’t want staff having to deal with such hurtful messages as one or two of them. Thanks for y’all’s input! I think it’s safe to assume many other people agree with you guys in wanting to know what was submitted. It’d be great to set up a regular, simple system where submissions are shared and responded to, and maybe even a way to share and communicate what is on the staff’s to do list?

I wouldn't wish for AS to be exposed to the rude messages of some members, honestly. Also, this sounds like a great question/answer thing the AS tumblr may be used for?

Also, while on the same subject: I hope we will also see a recap of the survey once it ended. I'm curious about that too.

Hm, you have a good point there as well. Maybe just omitted entirely? Could be good motivation to keep things civil. I looked at the anon box but it doesn’t look like I can edit the title once it’s been created unfortunately or I would add a note to be constructive.

And absolutely! I already started talking to Shep about how we could share the results and use them to faciliate a discussion about how members suggest we improve our weak areas and what they’d like to see. There will likely be a thread about it once the survey has ended and people will of course be able to use the anon box for their suggestions as well as the thread I am thinking. We haven’t fully fleshed it out yet.

    • The point of the anon box is to provide AS with feedback from it's users, not to bash or hate on the staff/site or to be rude. It's a shame that's happening.

      I do think that maybe having a thread to share the submissions and staff's response would be good to have. I want to know what others are saying as well.

I would keep the rude messages away entirely. And also, if people are not constructive just close the suggestionbox, honestly. Most of us are adults here and if they can't be civilized then it is their fault.

It's the sour thing of one person ruins it for all, but then again. We need to be able to have a civil discussion about it & stressed out staff will not make AS better.

The current staff discussion is considering to tweak some just a smidgen (like what says tf, which I would just remove) and then entirely omit ones that are just plain inappropriate. I’m more than happy to reply to people and everyone is understandably curious as to what people submit, and that will keep things appropriate here on the forum at least.
