@msh210 @Daniel @DoubleAA @Scimonster (participants in this discussion who are aroundish): what do you think? Should we a) make no change, b) add a 24-hour limit, c) ... except after Taanit Esther starts, or d) add a low-key quality reminder?

@IsaacMoses As a wise woman once said "I'd personally prefer that we tweak policy incrementally rather than making a big changer change this year and then deciding to partly roll back next year."
 
8:29 AM
@MonicaCellio I think it's so that the community user with diamond powers can close it single handedly
@MonicaCellio Now it's tied for highest. I agree it's the change with the smallest footprint and will be simplest.

@Scimonster Now it's highest (tied with another that says "if we go with [another answer that's not highest], then…", which means it's not tied for highest with any actual proposal).
(But I've only checked net votes, not up- and down-.)

@msh210 Now, the low-key alternative has the lone lead with +5 net.

@IsaacMoses @msh210 @Scimonster and now the low-key alternative has the same net score as Yez's one-per-day proposal. The low-key alternative is +5/-0 while the vote limit is +8/-3. There's some voting disagreement on the other answers too, some supporting a limit and some saying we don't need it.
Three moderators are in favor of the low-key approach (the fourth hasn't said one way or the other that I've seen), and while I don't want to "pull rank", enforcement of a stronger policy is also going to fall to mods.
Last year's most-prolific poster has already said he'll be more careful this year.
So, my proposal to resolve this for this year, since the season opens tomorrow night: enact the low-key alternative, and if we see a problem, we can adjust to add a limit during the PTIJ season. I predict we won't need to.
Any objections to doing that?
 
5:14 PM
@Daniel oops, left you off the ping. Sorry. ^^^
 
@MonicaCellio I think we should not plan on changing policy mid-season. Other than that, no objection.
 
I agree that we should make a decision in the next couple of hours and stick with it
 
Ok. And on reflection, the most-likely failure under the "remind people but don't restrict" approach is that one or two people go a little wild (it's not likely to be lots of people), and if that happens we can have a word with the individuals involved.
 
@MonicaCellio Yes
 
If somebody were to maliciously post lots of junk -- which has never happened -- then we would have other recourse, same as the rest of the year.
Ok, revised proposal for this year: just remind people, i.e. implement the low-key alternative.
 
5:22 PM
@MonicaCellio Well, where I am, it's now chatzot on Erev Shabbat, and I think you've laid out the case for sufficient consensus, so I'm going to go ahead and implement this.
 
@IsaacMoses thanks.
 
@MonicaCellio @Daniel et al. Thanks for all of your work to get us to a policy change we're all comfortable with. May this year's PTIJ season be full of great amusement and edification and empty of annoyance.
 
@IsaacMoses amein!
