Hi good friends 1. Describe the problem 2. What current rules tackle this problem? Why are these rules unable to solve the problem 3. Proposition: explain the change (new rule added / amendment / old rule removed) 4. Analysis: Explain why this change will fix the problem (5. Side-effects: explain why there is little backlash / why it's worth the weigh-off. Include the down-sides here) ---- Let me apply it: 1. Problem 1: Suggestions are often not suggestions (i.e. they only describe a problem and not a solution to it) or unclear. Problem 2: Discussions regarding the suggestions are not efficient (i.e. people misinterpreting eachother). 2. There isn't a rule dealing with this 3. Add the following template in a sticky. It's optional to make the use of the template mandatory. 4. The template will help structure whatever the writer is trying to suggest. It offers him a moment of reflection, which will only benefit the quality of the suggestion. So for instance, by following the template, a writer may come to the conclusion that his suggestion isn't actually a suggestion, but the description of a problem. As to the discussion - users will be able to check individual bullet points and decide whether they agree with which point, creating a more effective discussion with better engagement. 5. Backlash may be that users will refrain from posting suggestions because they will find following the template exhaustive. To that, my response is as follows: it's optional to make the template mandatory. And in the defense of a mandatory template, I argue that staff takes suggestions seriously and considers all of them. In return, the bare minimum required is for a well-structured suggestion.
