RE: How Can We Improve Steemit's User Retention? (English/Turkish)

in #steemit5 years ago

Nice one mate - your feedback carries a lot of substance ! Although it highlights censorship as a primary concern it is still valid but dont you think the platform has in a way given the community the ethical rights /power to reject content that they feel is not fit to the audience ? just a thought !


I appreciate your thoughts. I do, however, disagree with you on censorship.

Let a member show their backside and they will have to live with the comments they get in response. Let the truth rise to the top. This is the best deterrent to unacceptable posting. They know they will have this as a record of their behavior in the community, and a strong community response addressing the miscreant standing for all time as an embarrassment to the misbehaving member, or they may through the process of reasoned dialogue feel compelled to apologize for their wrongdoing, save face, and hopefully see the error of their ways, rather than members trying to sweep unpopular thinking under the rug, and pretend it does not exist. The flag thing is wrong no matter how one tries to rationalize it.

The road to hell is paved with pragmatisms used to justify the doing of that which you know to be wrong.

Peace, love, and cosmic Steeming wisdom!

It can go down the slippery slope of 'social engineering' and then it advances to full on 'propaganda indoctrination'. Its a road this platform does not want to go down if it hopes to survive and thrive. And I think it can survive. It can grow. I think the potential for unlimited success is there is the making. I say, given a chance this platform can be miraculous and a bastion of real liberty.

True ! I agree a a couple of your views on letting the truth rise to the TOP & I reckon it does the only factor is how soon or late it does...even if something is not still could be subject to severe criticism - I reckon that one of looking at it as-well, to me it then sounds as complete freedom to expression. Let your readers then decide & leave their opinions.

Calling out miscreance addressing it quickly and making your voice heard is key to dealing with problem members. Let people speak their minds and the truth will rise to the top. The consequence for poor behavior is being called out by other members. Our response to bad behavior should be to address the truth of it and to correct in a diplomatic way. Let's bring each other up rather than try to make each other go away. As a community we have the responsibility to bring everyone up to the truth. Only then will the troubles subside. The truth will set you free.

On Steemit there is a real opportunity to to create a unified free community. Only if you trust the community to self correct will it ever truly come together as a community. Anything short of that and you will end up with the same ghettoized community as Zuckerberg's playground.

200+ years of American history proves that freedom works if you give it a chance.

When Thomas Jefferson was asked "What kind of government did you create" His response was "A Republic ma'am, if you can keep it" A republic is a self-regulated society based upon agreed upon laws (Constitution). Steemit is an opportunity to create a self-regulated and free community online. The 'flag' makes Steemit into another oppressive centralized oligarchy. Get rid of the flag and we will arrive at a free society...if you can keep it.
