To talk about meta-level stuff such as how this Babble Thread should be structured, please comment here.
I suggest relaxing the rule “don’t comment on top-level comments” to something like “only positive comments, and no sooner than 3 days after the top-level comment was written”.
Because, some comments may start a useful discussion. That can happen here, in a private message, or not at all—I think the first option would be the best.
Reading the OP quickly, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was supposed to babble about… “100 ways to light a candle” is easier than ”...anything” :)
Consider giving some prompts that people could default to, unless they have something else in mind already?
Thanks for bringing this up. I’ll edit to make it more clear, but I what I’m going for here is “anything”.
It seems to me like there should be a place for “anything babbles” for people who do have things that come to mind they want to babble about, and also a place for “prompted babbles” for people who need the prompt and because it’s cool to see how other people babbled on the same topic you’re babbling about.
I misread your comment initially. Now I see that you specify prompts that people can default to. That seems like a good idea. I’ll add some.
