@/FearlessPhoenix did you check if the polls were allowed yet?

4 Likes

yeah, sorry forgot to get back to you earlier

unfortunately we can’t allow them :(( instead, you could just keep all polls to the forum and then link the posts or something if you wanted to

I think I brought this up already a couple of times, but not with #collaborations-and-beta-testing. I’ll bring up the discussion again since the same issue has bugged me since before I became a lead.

Hi there! Welcome back! Sorry for a somewhat late reply, I’ve been quite busy the last day :slight_smile:

I’ve been a leader on the forum since March 2019 (the original announcement is here)

iirc, you can start either of the user tutorials, it’ll open a pm between you and discobot and then you can use that for dico to messages from then on

Tho i havent used discobot in a while so i could be incorrect

If I were to make a super cool epic in depth tutorial thing would I be allowed to include a lot of images? Because I’m very visual when trying to explain things but I could also possibly use drafts? Or no images? Idk I could possibly work around it

I would also like to add that I think the edit time is way too narrow. I think that the restriction on editing to just 5 minutes, because a minor few have misused editing in the past (from what I understand), is too punishing and unfair on the general userbase.

Forum users should feel comfortable to update their posts with new information and make corrections, but at the moment they have to make a request to leaders to edit, which can feel like a hassle.

Oh, of course! Feel free to add as many images to make your tutorial clear (within reason of course).

The whole idea of “less images” really just refers to posting images that aren’t strictly necessary for the content of your post – I honestly think it’s made a bigger deal than it had to, but it’s definitely still important to keep in mind – here’s my note on it.

I second this.
