This is a first poll I’m posting to try and test the community’s waters on various issues (please DM me any ideas you are curious about). Good questions are not easy to come up with .
What I would like to draw you attention to is the unscientific-ness of this little experiment -
Phrasing of question and answers is crucial is this type of study. You need to double blind test it with other phrasings and control groups.
Discourse (god bless them) offer limited poll functionality. One can consider quadratic voting or approval voting as examples, could produce quite different results. But we don’t have that here.
A standalone question is almost always meaningless in this context. Even if the phrasing was “perfect”, flattening things into one question is always reductive, and unidimensional.
Incompleteness. Of course I cannot come up with all the right options that people are considering.
I still hope this could provide us with some minor insight for the community, about the community, and it’s of course, kind of up to us.
We could also imagine a more fleshed out system where people interact with each other in all sorts of ways, on all sorts of topics, and that activity is “translated” or visualized somehow to represent some “collective sentiments”.
