As we have previously mentioned, development of version 3 of the site is underway. As we enter the last few weeks of development and testing before launch, we want to ask you for input from three different societal perspectives: oligarchical, democratic, and communistic.
The oligarchical perspective is the mainstay of the current site. We strive to pick administrators and moderators with a keen eye for what content is good and nerdy. Sometimes we miss the mark, but overall we think we do a decent job. However, we’re looking to you for ways in which our moderation could improve. Whether it’s how to deal with unjust scoring, or even the rejection of a poll, we’d like to hear your thoughts.
As for a democracy, this is mostly non-existent on the site in its current form. We plan to give some power to the people with version 3, but we’re curious where you think that power should be. What parts of the site do you think would be better if popular opinion played a role?
Lastly, from a communistic standpoint, aside from Will’s fresh red hammer and sickle tattoo, what would you like to see simply not get judged? Books and blogs both come to mind. What sort of content would you like to share with the site – while making use of similar content shared by others – without someone tagging it as good or bad.
Please leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments. Thanks for helping to make version 3 the best yet!
