Just some ideas I had and may share with others on G@G. Born out of my frustrations with the Zoo Keepers here.
1. Suggest an Edit.
People work very hard on their Takes and it doesn't help them or sit well with them to have someone else revamp them. If Editors were in fact true Editors it would be most welcome if they suggested what may need improving rather than changing it outright. Allowing the G@G member to learn and adapt. At the very least we could be more involved with OUR Content ultimately choosing how are work is received.
2. Give everyone 24 hours to edit the spelling in their Takes and Questions.
Sometimes we don't catch it until after posting and it's very annoying to read the one or two comments on the use of "They, They're, Their, Your and You're." We are all Human and prone to mistakes, give us the chance to fix our misspelling and partially silence the Grammar Nazis.
3. The Down Votes.
Bring them back so the rest of us, that don't care either way, won't have to listen to the complaints any more.
4. Add a Humor/Sarcasm Topic category.
There are a lot of posts that I have seen that are very funny as long as they are not taken seriously. Sarcasm is hard enough to pull off online without people taking offense to everything you didn't mean that way. That and I think most times people here need a laugh or two.
5. Limit the number of "How do I look?" posts to one per month, per member.
This would just prevent a repeat Askers and Trolls from controlling the live feed. (I know it's a big ask that won't happen but it's MY-TAKE.)
6. Tailor the Live Feed to the Member.
Put the questions and MyTakes of the Topics that they follow above those that have just been commented on. It's very aggravating to see 5 new posts on the same question in separate blocks on the Live Feed page.
Maybe in a year I'll get to see if my suggestions take hold but the rate of bitching to reality is roughly as fast as seeing Haley's Comet twice in a lifetime. Anyways that is all I can think of...for now...
