State of the Subreddit Address : circlebroke

Yaeger CPA Review

My fellow Circlebrokers, lady and gentlemen of the Moderation Team and other esteemed readers, thank you for coming. Today, and over the course of the next few days, so long as this thread remains active, we will be examining the State of /r/Circlebroke, what it means for the future of /r/Circlebroke, and what it has meant in the context of the past of /r/Circlebroke.

NOTE: We want YOU to tell us all of these things. This is the ultimate meta post, from which we gather all of your feedback, suggestions, woes, trials, and tribulations and smoosh them all into some kind of squishy ball of popular opinion.

This is Thunderdome the State of the Subreddit Address.

Why are we doing this?

That’s a GREAT question, and I’m elated you would ask it. Over the course of the last 1.333333 years or so, this subreddit has undergone a plethora of changes.

Some have slowly crept in, perhaps drunkenly suggested by a mod on some Friday night and implemented some 4-6 weeks later. Some have been vast, catastrophic changes intended to change the very character of the subreddit itself.

The largest and most drastic changes, however, have come with the massive growth and turnover of the subscriber base. Whether it was BestOf storming our beautiful, pristine beachhead, an unfortunately well-placed plug in /r/AskReddit, or just the sheer, dumb, bad good fortune of stumbling upon /r/Circlebroke, we have, against all odds, reached over 20,000 subscribers.

In light of all this, we thought it would be good to really dig down into subscriber opinion on a few things.

What’s all this about then?

This is an opportunity for you, the subscribers, to engage in a no-holds barred, anything goes, meta-discussion about Circlebroke. It’s important this discussion is carried out with you all in mind, not just the moderators. We’ve often said that as moderators, we only have control over what you can’t say. Everything else is up to you, as subscribers.

What the hell are we supposed to talk about?

Literally anything you want to talk about with regard to Circlebroke, Circlebroke2, or any of the others. Here are some starting points to get you all going:

What’s wrong with this subreddit? What’s RIGHT with it?

How can we stop rehashing the same old content? Do we want to stop rehashing the same old content?

WHY IS EVERYONE SO ANGRY ALL THE TIME? (this is one from the mods. we seriously want to know)

What do you like about the moderation here? What do you dislike about it? How can we do our jobs better?

What rules put you out. What rules you really like.

Does Haqua actually exist?

If the mods were stuck in a lifeboat for a month, who would be the first to be eaten? Who would be the last? Who would suggest they start eating people in the first place?

Some things we, as a team, would like to address before we get started.

Discuss the Discussion: This one’s been giving everyone a little bit of grief lately. What we mean when we say this is, stop freaking arguing about the same things being argued about in the original thread. If you want to do that, go do that in the original thread. Don’t come back here and start bickering with each other over how to cook a goddamned steak. "CB isn’t an extension of the original post and shouldn’t be treated as such." – GoA – K_Lobstah.

Fighting Words/General Hostility: Some time back, we’re not sure when, Circlebroke became really, really, really angry. Is this just how you all feel now? Is there anything we can do to help? CB is a subreddit for discussion, but that doesn’t mean you have to be 100% serious or pissed off all the time. Which also brings us to the next point…

Stop the Full-On Jerking: Some jerking is fine, but you have NO IDEA how many comments like, "Le gentlemen fundie sirs and their neckbearded fedoras can’t handle le childrenz and think about the menz!" we have to remove every day. This isn’t /r/ShitRedditSays. It’s not /r/Circlejerk. We definitely want everyone to engage their senses of humor, but this is NOT the way to do it. It’s stupid and boring.

TL;DR

It’s time to buck up and talk about CB. Whatever you want. The mod team will answer questions or make comments throughout this thread, but what we’re really after is WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. This should be first and foremost a discussion amongst yourselves.

Well then, what are you waiting for? Get to it.

edit: Oh, and if this doesn’t end up working out, don’t forget about /r/circlebrokerebooted! We can start again. A clean slate!
