2020 Deleting Facebook Group Requests which didn't answer the question
Proposer (name, handle, etc.):
@Saskia (The Fuzzy Facilitator)
Board member, FB group admin
Why is the proposer the appropriate person to make this decision:
Because she handles, with others, the incoming facebook group requests
Who are the people/roles most affected by this proposal:
FB admins & moderators
@Clément Marchand Le Poittevin @Jan Thomas @waldo @Hanna-Maija @Alexxx @Remy Schneider & Eyal (who is not on talk)
FB users who wish to become part of the KB facebook group but did not answer a question
Who are the people/roles with the most knowledge and experience relevant to this proposal:
See point 1. above.
What is the proposal:
Deleting Facebook Group Requests which didn't answer the question. Deleting the step which has been reported to me as requested practice: Writing the people who did not answer the question with the request to follow up on the question in order to become part of the group.
According to @Clément Marchand Le Poittevin there is a 10% return rate when he asks this question to people.
I am convinced that we base our community on communication and participation. I do not believe people who are not able to answer a single question (especially when the answer is linked in the question, so not-knowing is not a valid reason) are necessarily a good fit for the community.
What is the motivation for this proposal:
Streamlining the moderation process.
How would this proposal be implemented:
We stop asking 'Please answer the question' and simply delete group requests which didn't bother to answer.
Who would implement this proposal:
See point 1. under 'Who is affected'
When would this proposal be implemented:
Immediatley after the decision has been made
What would be the cost (time, money, effort, etc.) of this proposal:
It would cost less time and energy for moderators.
What are the existing/active counter-proposals:
Asking the people to answer the group question.
What are the advantages of this proposal (relative to the current situation and/or counter-proposals):
What are the disadvantages of this proposal (relative to the current situation and/or counter-proposals):
Less inclusivity for people who cannot answer a single question about the most basic 10 principles of the event.
Until when will the advice process run:
Until a consensus has been reached, but 2 weeks maximum.
