I think people have asked this or something similar before, but: how well do you think the instance admin of the account you're voting on this poll with knows you?
( 🔁 ✅ )
@packbat I don't know who you are, I don't think you know who I am, this question is worded confusingly, and I'm not even me so-
@rosemary final poll question should say "you" not "i"
@packbat This only ads to my confusion but admittedly my brain is fried. I commend your effort. If you don't mind my asking, what is the rationale behind the poll?
@rosemary One of the things that a lot of fediverse advocates point to as a strength of the platform is that the moderation is socially nearby - an instance is more like a Discord server or a special-interest forum where the admin is a member than either, on the one hand, a commercial web service where the admins are employees of shareholders charged with maintaining the profitability of an asset (e.g. YouTube), or on the other hand, a fannish community project where the admins are a bunch of enthusiasts maintaining a project because they like the idea of it existing (e.g. Archive Of Our Own).
Obviously, though, an instance could easily be the latter - or someone (e.g. the Packbats) might join an instance of someone they're a fan of rather than an acquaintance.
@Canageek final poll question should say "you" not "i"
@packbat i feel like the admin probably doesn't know me because I rarely post on local but a lot of the mods do
@packbat I consider her a friend
@packbat Boosting but not voting because we're our own admin
@systemroot The last question was supposed to say "you", if it helps? We hoped instance admins would tick that one.
@packbat Ah, we did not see that somehow, thank you.
