Comments on 2018-10-17 Trunk Quality Program

Yeah, I think that the slight reminder makes a lot of sense. I don’t remember what I supposed to do after joining some lists to be honest.

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

People probably intend to post on their chosen topics, but never get around to it. I’m sure people will accept that failing, if it is pointed out to them. It probably doesn’t require individual communication, blanket statement somewhere would be fine.

I liked the comment by @ckeen: “Trunk’s biggest plus is somewhat showing the broadness of possible stuff people talk about. With the usual introductions you will find yourself sitting in a very small bubble. […] So I think trunk is useful as such, I am wondering how much active curating is necessary to achieve good connections.”

Indeed. How much active curating is necessary? I’ll have to think about this some more.

Perhaps a simple first step is to remove inactive accounts? I’m also interested in removing shit posters (is there a better word?) – just the most obvious off-topic posters, if we have any of them. I also don’t know how to get started. As an individual admin perhaps by simply picking a list, clicking on all the accounts, removing the ones that I think need to go, and then send a message to the admins. The admins can check the log and provide feedback if they want. Something low-level like that?
