Did I understand it correctly that only Redditors that have 100 000 or more karma are allowed to talk here?
Even if this is clickbait, no.
Not in a box.
Not with a fox.
Not in a house.
Not with a mouse.
Quick note on the self-promo posts I've been seeing on the Microblog - Let me start out by saying this:
WE WELCOME ARTISTS TO TALK ABOUT THEIR WORK ON /M/SCIFI.
However - artists who ONLY talk about their work on /m/scifi and contribute nothing else - no other content, articles, comments, engagement - will quickly wear out their welcome. I've had some direct conversations but it's starting to feel like a game of Whack-a-mole. I'm still figuring out how to make this community work for everyone, and it's disturbing to me to - other than @stopthatgirl7 - be the only people that post things for us to read/talk about on the threads. We're not Reddit - we're better than that.
Here's a quick re-cap of Rule #5
Rule 5: Self-promo is a privilege, not a right
The ratio of content to self-promotion in a community can vary depending on the specific context and the community's goals. However, it is generally recommended to prioritize content over self-promotion to maintain a healthy and engaging community environment. Here are some guidelines to consider:
Content First: Emphasize the importance of valuable and relevant content that adds value to the community.
Limit Self-Promotion: While self-promotion can have its place within a community, it should not dominate the content. Encourage members to engage with the community through meaningful discussions and contributions rather than solely promoting their own work or products.
Promote Community Engagement: Actively encourage community members to participate in discussions, share their perspectives, and contribute to the community's growth. Engaging content fosters a sense of community ownership and encourages members to interact with each other.
Clear Self-Promotion Guidelines: Establish clear guidelines regarding self-promotion to avoid ambiguity and ensure transparency.
Remember, the ultimate goal of a community is to facilitate meaningful interactions, shared learning, and the exchange of valuable content. By prioritizing content over self-promotion, the community can maintain its focus, encourage active participation, and create a more vibrant and engaging space for its members.
The microblog space has seen some AMAZING content - kudos to @SFRuminations, @ewdocparris, @TheSpaceshipper, and others for their continuing contributions that make this a fun, interesting place to be.
To wrap up - please consider this your Self-Promo yellow flag. Talk about your work, but contribute to the rest of the magazine too, please.
Additionally - I'm embarrassed to note that some NSFW content has swept into the Microblog. Let me restate: Rule #6 - No NSFW content - is very real and will result in an immediate/permanent ban. I can't be everywhere at once, so please **Report **any NSFW you come across here on /m/scifi.
@inkican lol ok, was not expecting my name to pop up in a mod post. I’m glad to see my efforts to post things to get conversation started/seem interesting are appreciated!
Hello, everybody! I'm trying to learn how to post here. I can't seem to be able to post my pictures from a URL. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Anyway, what is everyone up to after getting done with the Event Quests?
@Sunpebble Your picture is there! Maybe it was just kbin having problems because of all the new people?
