Bob wrote:Anyhow -- please note the hopefully positive statements I inserted at the top of my edits, above. I'd prefer that eplaya users reading the guidelines be left more with the feeling that they are empowered to make or break the story of Burning Man, rather than fearing that if they fuck up by violating some subpart of some vaguely configured subsection they'll be subjecting themselves to virtual electroshock treatment.

Bob wrote:I hope I can feel confident that Britton et al will continue to hack at the interface on their own per user requests made here, and make some effort to show us (l)users some progress on that. Can't be that hard to get rid of a few icons, omit needless alt-text, simplify the style sheets, condense the tables, and so on..
Bob wrote:Good thing this is a draft.Ya'll need to, like, omit needless words. I've stayed away from the eplaya task force thing for a number of reasons -- the fact of the horse already being out of the barn and galloping down the road being the main.

We reserve the right to maintain this board for the benefit of all. Please behave.
Bob wrote:As part of this new policy thing -- how about brief, honest, illustrative case-by-case reports by admins in the Feedback section on extreme actions taken? More important than some vaguely-worded set of guidelines would be an evolving knowledge of who's actually doing what to protect us from ourselves, and why, rather simply leave everybody guessing.
Bob wrote:And re: the ETF -- my philosophy would be to publicly vet everything on the eplaya that isn't already part of Burning Man's general policies and expectations of participants.
