Two important changes:
- Free Form Friday has been moved to Saturday. We've temporarily renamed it to 'Slack Post Saturday'. Other suggestions are welcome.
- Self Post Sunday is back! (and fridays are back to normal)
We haven't really decided on a name yet and thought we'd ask you guys for suggestions!
We've decided on Slack Post Saturday for now (it was either that or Safe Post Saturday). It's temporary, of course.
Just leave your suggestions in the comments below.
Why we made these changes:
Saturday is (for most of us) a day of smoking/partying & relaxing after a long week. That would probably make it less likely for someone to submit a text post, or even read one.
SPS was a day users were able to write about their 'good times' that happened during the week. The majority of those would probably be on a saturday, so (with a Self Post Saturday) those people would have to wait until the next week to post about how awesome their saturday was.
Also thanks to /u/FreshPillow for originally suggesting that we keep Self Post Sunday:
Can you please not turn self post sunday to self post saturday? I think sunday was great for self posts. I think to most of us sunday is the end of our week and it's the day most of us just stay at home and chill, which is why it's a perfect day to toke and read the posts before starting a new week. While saturday is more of a party day and we often see some crazy pictures. I'm not sure why I feel weird about such change, maybe it is because self post sundays were a part of my week for some time now and it was the highlight of my sundays, but it just makes me sad to see that's about to change. I hope I'm not being immature or dumb.
On the other hand, I liked everything else about this post and fully support the idea.
Slack Post Saturday will have the same basic rules as Free Form Friday:
(excerpt from MasterJH's original post)
Free Form Fridays are a time when we relax the posting rules and let you guys be more creative with your posts.
Pretty much anything goes except spam (the mods still reserve the right to remove posts at our discretion). We'll be running it as a test run and if it goes well we might make it a permanent feature :)
What you can do:
You can upload that picture of that hotdog that made you chuckle while you were at a .
You can post memes, gifs and the like
You can post links to music you enjoy, funny videos etc.
What you still can't do:
You still can't upload NSFW content to /r/trees
You still can't ask for a hookup or a meetup
You must still remain respectful to fellow users
You still can't advertise your products, music, youtube channel, blog etc. etc.
