Generic Bill of Responsibilities[edit source]

Much more to do here. Remind me to fill this in... -- RobLa (talk) 00:38, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Daily Kos Rules of the Road[edit source]

I just skimmed the Daily Kos "Rules of the Road", and I think these we should adapt many of these to Electowiki's Code of Conduct. -- RobLa (talk) 00:38, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

Verbosity[edit source]

I'm finding that there's a lot of word generation out there on the Internet, but not a lot of word comprehension. It seems like firehosing and gish galloping have become widespread in political debates. I've been toying with a few ideas to express this in a single, pithy way, and I'd like to get some thoughts:

  • Friends don't give friends reading assignments
    • This seems appropriate for social networking sites, and less appropriate for other venues where there's not an assumption that the participants are Friends(tm).
  • No homework
    • Don't send someone a link and expect them to read it, unless *they* trust the website. Once again, more appropriate for a social networking site geared more toward unproductive fun than productivity
  • This forum is not your blog
  • If you say something controversial, summarize it in 500 characters or less
  • Reading is more helpful than typing
    • This is a riff off of "Listening is better than speaking"
  • The lord gave you two ears, and one mouth for a reason

I'm not sure which of these best captures the idea the best, but I'd like to choose one. Thoughts? -- RobLa (talk) 06:50, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

Move from electowiki[edit source]

Everything before May 2020 above was originally posted at electowiki:User_talk:RobLa/BResp by me. I'm going to edit the comments above to make that slightly clearer, and possibly remove a thing or two. For example, over on electowiki:User_talk:RobLa/BResp back in March, I had a "Electowiki Code of Conduct" section, noting: "We should use this framework to develop a proper Code of Conduct for this wiki.". Well, that still holds true, so I'm leaving that comment over there (and deleting it from this page). -- RobLa (talk) 20:42, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Bullying[edit source]

I had an online experience which made me understand a very subtle form of bullying. Is there a pithy way of describing online bullying where the person uses their online popularity to get away with "winning" a debate against someone less popular? -- RobLa (talk) 01:36, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

November 2020 ideas[edit source]

Here's a few more bullet points for the "Bill of Responsibilities"

  • Attack your opponents misstatements, but don't attack your opponent.
  • When someone attacks something you've said, don't take it personally
  • You are the authority on your emotions; keep them in check
  • Your opponent is the authority on their emotions; don't assume you know how they feel
  • We're all stuck on this big blue marble together; don't burn your bridges
  • Semicolons are cool; learn how to use them

Maybe the last one doesn't need to be part of the list, but it seemed to fit in with the others. -- RobLa (talk) 03:33, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
