Hey, fellow guv’mint ’fishals,
I was wondering if anyone had any general thoughts or ideas about the RMB, given that several of us have tried to address all of the low-quality, borderline spam posts that have been cropping up recently.
I don’t think we’re at a crisis point, but it’s on the level of “rising concern” for me, considering that Forest is such an RMB-based region. I don’t see how it contributes anything to the community when people are going back and forth like “sipping bullsh!t tea” and “blam! u just got hit w/ a bomb lolz!” and other such nonsense. As many of us can personally attest to, this is simply not in keeping with how Forest’s RMB has ever worked, at least since I arrived in August of 2016.
On some level, we were always at risk for this as Forest became larger and larger, but it seems like lately, the Forest of large trees with a nice, open understory has been replaced by a tangle of brush and competing saplings that block the view and choke out much of the real conversation. I don’t have the patience or ability to sit down and figure these things out numerically, but I would suspect that a chart of word count by post by page number might reveal that our word count per post has been in long-term, gradual decline.
Alternatively, maybe this is insurmountable? Maybe I’m just being rigid and uptight about this, and this is “just the way things are” now.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
