18. The general lack of feedback in the alert / jury / post-hiding system does not help DU


Transparency? Not much.

Feedback is what allows a system learn and improve. Adults, children, animals, societies, communities.

When alerting, there is no feedback on how the alert went. Some people even get put into limbo and their alerts are silently ignored.

If there was feedback on alerting, then we would have a better idea of what is acceptable to the community and to what degree. A 4-2 vote carries less weight than a 6-0 vote and the community would generate better alerts if outcomes were known.

Likewise, one never knows how close to the line one goes because there is no mail informing you that an alert occurred and how it played out. If I found that I had been alerted a couple of times at 3-3 or 2-4, then I would know to dial it back on that degree of contention. Likewise the couple of times I did have a post hidden I had no idea if what I wrote was considered bad, very bad, or a little naughty.

There is more secrecy in the system than is needed and it is counter-productive.
