Hey @animuson, if you get some time can you check out my merge request on stackoverflow.com/questions/5421653/…? It's been hanging around for a while now. (meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/287489/…)

okay
So I was hoping to get some feedback on a meta mSO issue, I haven't noticed this pattern on MSE. It seems there is a block of users who will only post comments and yet cast a large amount of votes - but almost never answer. Some of them are even at a 800-1 comment to answer ratio. Is it desirable to have users who only comment and vote? Do they fill a gap of users who do not tend to vote or comment?
 
@TravisJ Yes, they do. In a horrible way though. They reason for how crap gets upvoted.
And unfortunately voting is anonymous.
 
Is it a problem to have users who only comment and vote?
 
Basically that is the core of the question
 
But I mean, why did you perceive it as an issue to ask about in the first place?
 
Well, comments are not vetted by the community and are considered "second-class citizens", so having all of a user's contribution as comments seems like they are both avoiding community consensus and also not making their contributions searchable.

@TravisJ That's their choice, then.
 
@TravisJ Is it desirable: No. Is it avoidable: No.
 
If it's a strong community opinion then somebody will post a similar view in a less transient form eventually, so it doesn't really matter at the end of the day.
 
There are several help vampires with dozens of accounts each roaming in chat rooms (hence who those rooms are named "help vamp rooms") begging for help and polluting the main site, but there's nothing we can do about it. :p
 
3:19 PM
I don't think this group is a set of help vampire users.
 
user259867
@TravisJ You're talking about meta sites specifically, right? I think this is perfectly normal. Many users shy away from posting answers on meta because they don't want to be downvoted, because it's a bit more spotlight than they are comfortable with, or because they are not confident enough to "speak for the community" [as they perceive it]. They still express their position via votes and comments.
 
@Woodface - Yes, but most of what I have observed is on mSO.
 
user259867
I see the same on meta.math. There are a few actors on stage (including me), and a relatively large peanut gallery.
 
@Woodface - The problem is their comments imply they speak for the community in the tone used often.
 
Wow, what a clear-up this question needed:
 
3:22 PM
You are a brave soul.
When it asked me to download the image I almost nuked the link from that question.
 
Here is a link for the Github source code: (URI ending with .git)
Does this person know how URIs work?
 
@TravisJ You're looking at their comments in isolation. Their comments don't imply that, because if others in the community disagree, there will be other comments or answers explaining such. It all works out in context.
 
@JasonC - Normally if other users disagree they will downvote the position since it is expected to be in an answer. Many users will not disagree in comments with someone who exhibits obsessive tendencies.
 
[ SmokeDetector ] Repeating characters in answer: MVC DB Duplication check, trouble when editing by Ivan Petrov on stackoverflow.com
 
... Does it fix everything if we have downvoting comments on MSO?
 
3:26 PM
@TravisJ But then it's apparent that that person exhibits obsessive tendencies, and so their comments are taken with a grain of salt. Don't underestimate others' abilities to interpret comments with the same discretion that you can.
 
@Unihedro - That would address part of this issue but would also cause so many other issues I am not sure it would fix "everything". It would be interesting to see in action though, that is for sure.
 
If some guy is ranting in comments and most people disagree, then most people already disagree, and so the goal is already achieved. What more would be accomplished by somehow changing the system?
 
@JasonC - I am not suggesting a change to the system.
 
Well, look at it this way.
Let's say CrazyGuy posts some comment that the community disagrees with. You're concerned that, because it is a comment, there's not really a clear way to show that disagreement. Correct?
 
Nope

So I was hoping to get some feedback on a meta mSO issue, I haven't noticed this pattern on MSE. It seems there is a block of users who will only post comments and yet cast a large amount of votes - but almost never answer. Some of them are even at a 800-1 comment to answer ratio. Is it desirable to have users who only comment and vote? Do they fill a gap of users who do not tend to vote or comment?
 
You're concerned that it may look like that person speaks for the community, correct?
 
I am concerned that it may look like the set of that type of user speaks for the community.
In isolation it is not a problem.
 
Now hold on.
 
Let's say there is a set of 10 very active users of this type.
 
No. I'm not done with my example yet.
 
3:32 PM
And they are only active in voting and comments on meta.
 
Your concern is exactly the same as being concerned that community disagreement is not visible on a comment, correct?
 
No
 
Ok, so, just so we're on the same page, how is "it looking like a set of a type of user speaks for the community" different than "it's not apparent that a set of a type of user doesn't speak for the community"...?
 
My concern is that when you have a group which is quick to comment and vote, but never post an answer, that they will effectively set the tone for any given post.
 
Do they set the tone for you?
 
3:34 PM
@JasonC We're concerned whether these users exhibiting the behavior will be undesirable. It is inconsiderate for everyone else. It demonstrates a lack of understanding of the model. It shows that we have participants that are between lurking and participating, but not in a good position that they can learn from, can contribute with, or are worth having around.
I certainly won't like it if my neighbors block all my guests from reaching my home and rant with real, utter nonsense.
That's just common sense, isn't it.
 
It's common sense but unrelated, as there is no mechanic by which comments prevent other comments from being made or posts to be created.
 
There's the problem.
 
Uh
So going back to your analogy, you just said you wouldn't like it if your neighbors block all your guests from reaching your home. I said your neighbors can't block all guests from reaching your home. Then you replied that that was the problem. Confused
Anyways, consider this:
CrazyGuy and his friends all post a bunch of ranty comments on an issue.
Ok, this is annoying. However, let's say you see the issue, personally, and you acknowledge those as crazy.
 
You dismissed the important aspect of them being 90% of the participation for that issue.
 
Not yet. Let me finish typing.
 
3:38 PM
Type in larger blocks :P
 
... As well as those, AKA us, who acknowledge them to be crazy to not waste our time and invested our time on somewhere more interesting, which hinders overwhelming those ridiculous, almost trolling comments, so they remain longer, but I'll let you continue
 
user259867
@Unihedro I don't think Travis means some clueless low-reps. If I understand correctly, this is more about reasonably high-rep users that are regulars on meta. (correct me if wrong)
 
Correct
 
Let's say that the vast majority of community users look at those comments and acknowledge them as crazy. In essence, the community already disagrees with them. Just because the disagree'ing people aren't vocal about it doesn't mean they don't disagree.
 
You continued with the dismissal of the concern I raised.
 
3:40 PM
And so if what this group of users is saying is truly crazy, and the community truly disagrees, then what difference does it make if the rest of the community isn't equally vocal about it? At the end of the day, the same number of people feel the same way. Therefore, it's not a concern.
 
@Woodface I don't see where the boundary we're setting here. Previously, previously, previously and previously on Meta, we got to see how some high rep members (cough cough) goes against community consensus and lack understanding of the model.
And they're not outliers. :p
 
Complainers always have the loudest voice, and this is something that people know and understand. The problem with your concern is that you are not giving other community users the same credit you give yourself: The ability to read comments with discretion.
 
In the inception of the topic, by only voting and commenting, CrazyGuy and his friends have influenced the issue without providing a means for the community to respond without engaging in comments. Say there are 5 of these users, and a question takes an hour to get 30 views. It more than likely wont get any positive reaction if it is even slightly against what that group deems as the community opinion. In this sense, they speak for the community.
 
Now, if you see a post where this is happening, and you feel the comments are crazy, then be the disagreeing voice and post an answer. Problem solved.
@TravisJ If that happened it happened because nobody in the community was passionate enough about their disagreement to post an answer. Therefore, perhaps the crazy guys have a point. My point is, it works out.
 
-5 on your answer too then :)
@JasonC - Well, perhaps the only way to combat collusion is with collusion.
 
3:43 PM
@JasonC So you can get a -5 on your answer and the question asker comes back after 5 minutes to see a reasonable answer having a -5? Is that even helpful?
 
People who agree with you will have no problem upvoting your answer, it will balance out. If it doesn't, it means there's more crazy than not. In that case, crazy does speak for the community.
 
Nothing against that, right? Because I can form a group and wield it as CrazyGuy and then expect the community to naturally handle it.
 
@JasonC Five minutes of fame.
@TravisJ That's actually a great idea.
 
@Unihedro Yes, because of two things. 1) If your points are sound the votes don't matter, and 2) let the question asker come back later.
@TravisJ The community will naturally handle it.
 
That is an assumption :) What happens when the collusion outnumbers the community?
 
3:45 PM
@JasonC Statistics show that 40% of all askers only checks back once.
 
Then the colluders (word?) are the community.
And we're the outcasts.
 
@JasonC For five minutes, which is enough to ruin the actual community.
 
That is an interesting point of view.
 
Yes, it is. It is also very practical. I should go build an army of accounts, and then I can rule a community.
 
The real thing it seems like you're looking for is a higher participation on MSE of other SE community members. This way, MSE more accurately reflects the SE community as a whole, instead of just reflecting the small subset that is currently vocal on MSE.
 
3:47 PM
Sock puppets are not what I meant by a set of users.
@JasonC - This doesn't seem to be an issue on MSE.
 
If you suspect sock puppets report them, they will be handled eventually.
 
I actually really like the way the MSE community handles issues, I wish every meta was more like here.
 
Er sorry. I confused my last comment. Trying again:
 
Many of the users I have observed exhibiting the behavior of only commenting do not participate on MSE.
 
3:49 PM
The real thing it seems like you're looking for is a higher participation on MSO of SO community members. This way, MSO more accurately reflects the SO community as a whole, instead of juts reflecting the small subset that is currently vocal on MSO.
 
... What about the inconsiderate participants? We're ignoring them totally?
 
And in any case I think of it like this: SO is a community of crazy, but the people who are in it for the long haul, like us talking about it here in chat, care. So if you see the community appearing to slide towards crazy, fight it. Post the disagreeing comments instead of letting them slide. Try to instill that value in other "silent" community members who share the same views as you. Post answers and ignore the downvotes. Report sock puppets and NC/Rude comments.
If you look at SO relative to other forums we're doing pretty good. It's not like we have an easy battle.
 
:O
 
@Unihedro No. We're responding to them politely and then ignoring them totally.
 
[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: ADDITIVE BLEND IN DIRECTX by terry on gamedev.stackexchange.com
 
3:52 PM
Because if they truly don't speak for the community, they'll be generally ignored, and it doesn't matter.
 
I like your premise, for sure :) Perhaps they won't be around for too long, but sometimes, they are around for years.
 
You have a great point there. Online communities have such a high traffic the root of the cause is, once again, human factors.
 
Then they're part of the community. So either try to sway them or accept that the community has a disagreeable side.
 
@JasonC - The one issue with more constant participation from SO members on MSO is that it will detract from the main goal of answering questions and building a knowledge repository. "meta is murder", and if all the high rep users spent their day discussing meta issues, the main site would probably suffer. So there needs to be a balance struck, which I believe there currently is. And that balance seems to be affected by a group of users who quickly react constantly to posts.
 
Just because of this conversation, I will try my best to be more active on MSO. I think that's a good example of how talking about it can rally people that care to be more vocal.
 
3:55 PM
@JasonC For good justice.
 
:D
 
Then again, this is all very subjective, you never know if you're on the correct side, only the agreeing/ disagreeing side. :p
 
Heh, most SO users can probably spare a day or two to stick to MSO, there's always somebody else available to take up the slack of closing duplicates of "What is a NullPointerException" for a day.
@Unihedro Exactly.
 
@Unihedro Yup, that is why answers are nice. It gives a better indication of which side you were on :)

Proposed Q&A site for cultural historians, foodies, psycho-geographers, and anyone interested in the cultural, historical and culinary aspects of pizza and its regional variants both within Italy and in the global Italian diaspora

Currently in definition.

 
@nicael use inverted colors like @Uni... actually that would be worse
 
@Woodface See how long we can keep it alive before it gets killed by Robert

I'm not sure how much value a site driven entirely by exclamations of "PIZZA IS AWESOME" (which it is) really adds...

(obligatory)(yet)
 
Huh. I always just got that vibe.
You should be.
 
You know it's only a matter of time.
 
@LynnCrumbling Not for the foreseeable future.
 
Oh? You've been told that?
 
It'll be after we graduate.

Not necessarily. Pro-tem mods can retire or become inactive.
 
user259867
In such a case SE appoints more of them.
 
oh wait.

A: Let's get critical: Oct 2014 Site Self-Evaluation

In an effort to be helpful, I'll be blunt. This site is not showing the hockey stick growth we look f...

 
Well.. with a diamond already in your SE portfolio, you'd be the obvious choice for any replacement needs.
 
@LynnCrumbling true. And I know the subject pretty good.

The Pizza proposal should be renamed "Pizza♦" so that everybody can feel as awesome as pizza when they look at their account list.
