COMMUNITY VOTE - Reposting Prompts

How do you feel about prompts being reposted? Should it be banned entirely, or only allowed after a certain number of rounds have passed, or something else? Similar prompts will always be allowed, because it would be ridiculous to try to ban those, but prompts that are copied word for word from previous rounds are up for debate.

We do have most of the prompts from post #1 and about half of post #2 up on the Delicious account, so old prompts don't just disappear into the ether.

Mod will have the final say, but I'm all about the path of least resistance.

ETA: Okay! So, tentative new rules:

We'll have a week long prompt freeze/fill fest once prompt post #3 is finished. If that goes well, we'll have one at the end of every round.

Reposting prompts will only be allowed after one round has passed - i.e., prompts from post #2 won't be allowed to be reposted until post #4, and can only be reposted once per post. You must provide a link to where it's been previously posted (mainly because it makes it a lot easier for us managing the delicious account, but also because previous discussion on a prompt can be very inspiring).

If a prompt has been filled, you can't repost it. Prompt something else.

For me it's not so much the reposting (word for word) itself but the frequency with which it is done sometimes.

I think there should be a limit. maybe that you can only post it so many times or that you have to wait [x] amount of rounds before reposting it. (Whichever is easiest to implement)
And that you need to link back to the original posting of your prompt when you reprompt.

Thats what I think anyway.

Maybe after a couple of rounds have passed? Or I know at least one kinkmeme that, I think between rounds, had a post for 'golden oldies'?? Idk exactly how it worked but there would just be a list of unfilled prompts from previous rounds which was kinda cute but idk how they did it like whether the mods just picked which prompts or what but yeah :')

I think it would be ashamed to not allow it altogether bc I reckon a lot of promising prompts would get lost that way, but that's just me :3

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 01:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh and yes I agree w the first anon about linking back to the original prompt (and basically everything else they said lol)

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
first anon and i totally agree with the 'promising prompts getting lost' even with a young kink meme like this it's possible, and id like a chance for old prompts (my own included lol) to see the light again in the future.

I forgot about the 'golden oldies' concept! I think that was the merlin kink meme?
A couple of kink memes (particularly the ones that have high traffic) have 'fill fests' where they close down prompting for a period of time and the community focuses on filling old prompts.

I vote for the Golden Oldies thing, I think it's a fantastic idea.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 01:23 pm (UTC)(link)

I have no problem with unfilled prompts being prompted again, even word for word. It is true that they're all safely saved in the (absolutely lovely) delicious account but I guess it's a way to have those prompts in the "same" place so to speak and to make sure that new comers do see them if they choose so? I don't know if there have been such a high number of reprompts that it's becoming a "problem" but I must admit it doen't bother me at all (yes, it's all about me, sorry lol).

Anyway, those are my two cents :)

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 01:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Prompts should be reposted, but only once per round.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 02:05 pm (UTC)(link)
agreed. i've reposted my prompts before but i've only done it once and only when the previous round closed.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 02:17 pm (UTC)(link)
double-agreed. i have no problem with re-posting, unless it's re-posted very frequently. once per round seems like a happy-medium.

I don't like re-posts.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't have a problem with people re-posting their prompts from earlier rounds but I do have a problem with how frequently they do it. It seems unnecessary and overly pushy to have someone re-post their prompt every round and/or multiple times a round and, honestly, it makes me actively not want to fill them. I get that they want it filled and are worried that it'll be lost in the shuffle but at some point there needs to be a limit.

Also, just a suggestion, maybe we can have a fill-a-thon before the next round encouraging people to fill prompts from previous rounds before they can post new ones?

That might elevate some of the re-prompting and also give those of us who are still trying to fill prompts from round one some time to catch-up.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
I remembr the Hetalia kinkmeme had a prompt freeze where the new round wouldn't open until a certain number of prompts got filled. It worked very well and there were quite a few fills. It also gives people time to comb through the meme to see what prompts they'd like to fill.

I think the same prompt being posted every single round is a bit much. I understand that people want them filled, but idk, reposting isn't always the best way to get it done.
People should have to wait at least a few rounds before posting it again. Considering our rounds aren't even that long, it's not asking that much.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 03:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Perhaps an 'unfilled prompts' post with links to the original prompt every five or so normal prompt posts?

And encourage anyone resubmitting a prompt not to do work-for-word and to link back.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 04:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Maybe I'm being silly, but I find reposting kind of rude?

I'm sorry to be so blunt, but honestly if people were interested in filling the prompt it would have been filled already. And I think reposting a prompt over and over again ends up having the opposite effect the poster intended; people avoid the post.

We all love our posts and want them to be filled, but it seems like certain people feel their posts deserve more attention? That's how it feels to me when I keep seeing the same post being circulated over and over again, IMO.

I like the suggestion that some other people have made, that maybe after this round finishes we could have a place to re-promote prompts from the 1st round.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 08:11 pm (UTC)(link)
There are people (like me!) who are only just finding the meme now and going back through 10k of comments to find unfilled prompts is really daunting.

I think we should have a period of time where no new prompts are allowed, until a certain number of prompts have been filled. I remember one kink meme that did this and it was very effective.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Agreed! There's certainly enough unfilled prompts to choose from.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm in favor of fill fests between every few prompt posts!

As for the frequency of reposting prompts, I'd definitely say that reposting in the same prompt post is too much, but the ideal length of the wait between initial posting an reposting depends on how active the kinkmeme is. At this point we're moving so fast that it's probably polite to skip at least one full prompt post before reposting any specific prompt, but if the meme slows down in the future that might change.

And yeah, it's definitely good to link back to the original posting when you repost a prompt.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 08:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I definitely vote for a fill fest after we close the current prompt post.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Yay I think the fill fests are a good idea

I'm not sure which would be better out of those options though...I guess if there's a set number of fills it might have an effect on the quality? Like ppl rushing to fill stuff just so the next round can start kind of thing...just a thought, I don't really know tho?

I'm think it should be allowed, but only after a certain amount of rounds have passed (like maybe three rounds between when you posted the prompt first/the last repost and the current round?)

(Anonymous) 2015-06-03 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I think that there should be a limit on reposting - either not being able to post before x number of rounds have passed or something similar.

And links to the original post. That would be so helpful.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-04 12:31 am (UTC)(link)
i don't see what the fuss is all about? like, once per round seems fine to me. it's like, .2 seconds more of scrolling, and you should probably recognize from the first few words that it's a familiar prompt so you can just skip over it with little care. if someone was posting multiple times in one round i'd have an issue with it, but once per round really doesn't seem like it's a problem, and if it makes you bitter against the prompt and not want to fill it well like...obviously you didn't want to fill it in the first place, and it's not? really your problem? i don't see why once per round would be annoying at all.

I agree that once per round is a good guideline.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-04 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
Seconded. If each prompt post is going to be so big (2/3k is standard from what I've seen... Not complaining, just stating facts.), once a post makes sense. We have to keep in mind how long it can be between prompt posts. Waiting ever three to five posts could take over a month, which is a big deal in meme time.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-04 09:44 am (UTC)(link)
I don't mind reposts but I think there should maybe be a one round wait. Like prompts in round #1 have to wait till round #3 to be reposted.

Though I like the 'golden oldies' round concept someone mentioned above.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-04 10:25 am (UTC)(link)
I think having to skip a round before you repost your prompt is a good idea.

I also love the idea of fill-fests, and a week sounds like a good time limit to me. Four weeks of prompts, one week of fills, then back to four weeks of prompts? Something like that, anyway.

(Anonymous) 2015-06-04 11:45 am (UTC)(link)
I think it makes sense to have a fill fest between each prompt post or smth?

I'm not sure if this is possible, but I'd love some kind of post dedicated to reposting unfilled prompts, or an unfilled prompt repository (delicious?) where prompts can easily be deleted once they're filled. Beyond that, I'm in favor of prompt freezes/fill fests like others have suggested, as well as only reposting a prompt once per round. It appears to take a week or two (or more!) to fill a prompt post up, which is relatively long.
