Continuing the discussion from I'm not interested in having the same discussions every day for the rest of my life:
One thing I’m leaning heavily toward is a gentle reminder, when you enter a new topic and begin replying, that you should have read at least some of it.
Thanks for contributing to the discussion! To promote thoughtful discussion, and ensure that everyone’s voice is being heard, please read 40 other people’s replies before submitting your own.
This would only appear for long discussions (50 posts or more) and it’d be a generous threshold like 40%, with perhaps a cap of 200 just to protect us from megatopics… ain’t nobody reading 40% of a 10,000 reply topic just to reply…
I like this because it’s a little speed bump intended to give us thoughtful discussions.
