Meta Question

zenzen's avatar

Did you notice they added the word (briefly) after "question"? Do you take that into consideration now? Are your questions shorter? And what else would you modify here at Fluther, if you could?

As asked, briefly.

I’ve said it a million times on questions such as this.

I’ll keep letting Fluther be Fluther and I’ll keep letting me be me.

That’s been there for as long as I can remember….

The ”(briefly)” has been there forever. I’m one of the few people capable of making such a change, and I’m pretty sure no one has touched it.

I’m pretty sure that’s been there…

What? Where?

I agree with @Blondesjon. Fluther is fine as is. Let’s just enjoy what we like about it and ignore what we don’t.

Edit: I don’t need that reminder because my questions are generally short anyway.

To make up for it, my description can sometimes make people go “TLDR!” >:D

I have been modded because my question was 2 sentences rather than one. Reducing to one sentence changed the tenor of my question from serious to social. Then I was modded to change my question from General to Social. It was meddling, not moderation, and mod make-work at that.

Fluther was fine as it stood.

Of course brevity is good in questions. We want to be ‘catchy’ as much as possible!!

I don’t know if briefly is new but my experience is many people don’t read instructions. So I’d be surprised if people adhere to the request.

I’ve never asked a question that was longer than one sentence.

Try and prove me wrong and that’ll just show us that you have nothing better to do, and that sucks for you.

Miss ya Zen. How ya doin’? Tell us briefly.

I’m with @jca What? Where?

@Dan_Lyons: It’s when you’re asking a question and you go through the steps. Step One is “Question (briefly)” and then you’re supposed to type your question. The OP is commenting on whether or not the word “Briefly” has just been added or has been there, and what the implications are.

I wouldn’t change a thing, not that I could anyway.
Fluther is what it is, warts & all, the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

In brief, no.

I just wish that Fluther had a scent capability, so that we could smell the food posts.

livelaughlove21's avatar

That’s always been there. And, no, I’ve never taken it into consideration. I do find it ironic that this question was pretty long, though. :)

On the other hand, I have been modded because my question was too brief. “Describe your hands?” was kicked back because it was not a question, even though another jelly had asked “Describe your personality.” with great success. I chose to abandon the question (as I have several times in the past) and re-ask as a similar, more-better question that will be new in the chronology. That new question was summarily removed because choosing the “abandon” function was “circumventing the moderation process”, so my question never got asked.
