- When should queues be allowed to avoid the "recent" rule?
- How should we deal with requests related to Meta discussions?
- Should (limited) re-posting of an expired *-pls request be allowed?
- Should SOCVR encourage cleanup of canonical questions?
- Should 'bad' or 'wrong' *-pls requests be binnable with some 3rd party user consensus?
- FAQ page rewrite
While there were concerns about possible abuse, the general consensus was that a Suggested Edit makes a question "active" for our purposes in SOCVR. CVQ entries do not.
The general consensus was that topics on Meta should disallow any requests from being made, since we do not want the room dragged into Meta effect, especially without other users knowing about it. The rule applies only if you already know of a Meta involving the question.
There were several varying opinions raised on this. Some held that we should not allow reposts. Some held that it was impractical to police every request so let anyone repost at will. Still a third option was to allow one repost. After some discussion, consensus was around letting only one repost (generally relying on the honor system).
While a general
del-pls can always be posted, actual cleanups of canonical questions requires domain knowledge. Consensus was that full canonical cleanups are not something SOCVR will participate in.
5. Should 'bad' or 'wrong' *-pls requests be binnable with some 3rd party user consensus? (GitHub issue) (Stars)
While it was preferable that the OP be convinced to request a bin, consensus was that a bin could be forced if
- At least three users agreed (an RO would count as one of the three)
- An attempt was made to contact the OP (via SOCVR chat ping)
- An RO agreed with the room reasoning (as always, ROs are the final say either way)
6. FAQ page rewrite (GitHub issue) (Stars)
A suggestion had been made that the FAQ page rules are in a clunky list. Machavity had suggested a new format. There were some issues raised that could not be resolved within the short time of a meeting topic. As such, the decision was made to work through the issues within the GitHub system to rewrite the FAQ page
