2015.07.16 Daily Dose: Don't Forget the Snapzu Blog!
The Daily Dose is a user-created discussion series where Snapzu members can check in with each other in a relaxed environment.
We are experimenting with different formats and ideas, so feedback is very welcome!
Hi Snapzu! I am sushmonster and /u/moderator has kindly given me the honor of hosting the Daily Dose discussions on Thursdays. While we are still looking for ideas to focus thursday's posts on -- quite like how wonderfully /u/glassdotter hosts the Tribe Talk Tuesdays -- in the meanwhile I will be highlighting one blog post from the Snapzu blog every week.
This week we are going to look at the blog post [Optimization] We have released an update that optimizes a number of pages. Snapzu's community has been growing at a rapid speed, and as much as we are delighted for the growth, it also means that the admins need to constantly work towards ensuring the site runs smoothly while handling so much traffic. The blog allows us to see that we're in good hands, as admins keep us on the loop about even small updates.
So be sure to follow /t/blog if you haven't done so already!
Also be sure to follow /t/ideasforsnapzu and if you think you have ideas that will enhance the experience of this community, posts your ideas for the admins!
The above blog raised two discussion points that I wanted to raise again here. The first is regarding downvotes. The Snapzu policies on downvotes are an important factor of this community: as you have probably already heard before, the downvote doesn't serve as an "I disagree/I dislike" button. If you do disagree with a post, please take a few moments to tell us why. This is far more productive and promotes a healthier community. Now is an opportunity to share your thoughts on downvotes below.
Secondly, there was also a discussion about the level of communication, or how detailed the admins should be in providing updates. I personally appreciate the transparency and merely the fact that we get updated about any changes at all, what do you think is the optimal level of communication for a site like Snapzu?
