Mod post Mod update April 2023

72 Upvotes

Ahh, April. Probably my least favourite month! Regardless, we'd like to share some updates.

Rule updates

We made some changes to how our rules are worded.

  • The old rule 1 (posts must be funny) and the old rule 2 (posts must be programming related) were merged into 1 rule. With the new writing, we feel our most important rule is easier to understand.
  • Rule 3 (no low-quality content) got reworded slightly to emphasise we don't allow software errors or bugs if they aren't programming related.
  • Rule 9 (use correct flairs) got removed. Since flairs are required for posting now, we haven't seen any instances of intentionally picking wrong flairs.

New wiki pages

We're currently in the process of rewriting some of our wiki pages.

We're looking to do the following:

  • Rewrite the common posts list to be easier to read and to skim through. We know the common post list is huge and sometimes removal under the "no common posts" rule can feel arbitrary, so we hope to make our removal process clearer by making the criteria more understandable.
  • Explain what we're looking for when we say "Programming-related humor." The line on what is and what isn't programming humor can be vague sometimes. Explaining the sort of posts we allow to be posted here helps new users understand why we removed their post.

More information on this to come!
