Dear Newsletter editor. Answered
This is an open letter.. made with a new id which i will never use again.. i promise you that my sole intention is for instructible to be better.
Lately it's been very difficult for me to follow the one rule "be nice policy"... I'm still trying very hard...
It's been made very hard by the newsletter editor, or whoever's job it is to choose which instructible to feature..
It's like you just choose randomly (or is this the case???), some times it's such a ridiculous ible that i can't hold my self much longer..
I want to be nasty in the comments of the ible.. But it's not the ible's writer's fault..
S/he's just making and sharing what s/he wants and i wouldn't even open the ible if it wasn't featured!!!
To me, featuring means that you think it's a really nice piece and everyone should have a look at it.. it's brilliant! it's new!! it's unique!
A little screening should be done prior to featuring.. Featuring doesn't mean "hey guys.. look at these random pages and see what you think.. or whatever..."
Some of the ible's that was featured lately that i dont think that everybody should see:
"is my sweater blue?" i admit it's a funny one.. well written.. yet it's pointless! anticlimactic! i was expecting so much more only because it was featured. If i stumbled on it on my own, i wouldn't have put so much expectation and wont be too disappointed.. might even enjoy the joke.. it was 1st of march!!! Not april fools!!!!!
"router hack" more like router 101.. or how to use your router.. look at all the breach in the be-nice-policy comments... I wont even comment there..
A few was a re-post of older ible, some even a only re-make (i dont want to say plagiarism), and few more i care to remember...
Were they innovative? were they interesting? were they everyone-must-see material? subjectively i say NO, NO, and NO. But if i look at the other commenting on them, mostly breaching the be nice policy, i'm not alone!
I'm seriously starting to see instructible newsletter to be more junk lately.. Not like before when i got excited everytime one arrives in my inbox.. now i'm like "meh.. gotta screen to these stuff again because someone didn't do his/her job properly"...
Please do something about this.. I'm worried that instructible would spiral down into the abyss, becoming flamming troll land due to the domino effect from negative comments making others feeling negative and spreading like a virus.. If it happens, there's only one to blame: unscreened newsletter featuring undeserving ibles.
So i say again: please.. please.. please..
