Just curious about people's opinions on all users being able to talk/comment in the reddit-* channels on Discord. I feel that these channels are very much similar to recent-changes-* channels and that being able to mention specific people that are better suited to reply to a topic or discuss with relevant people what an appropriate response should be would be useful to all users and help make for a more correct and consistent public image on Reddit as a whole. As it stands the channels are read-only for all users but Admins are able to talk/comment in them which I feel goes against RS:SOAW slightly and that potentially useful conversations are currently not being had due to the limitations. The intent is not to have these channels become Wiki-*-lite, just that someone can ask someone who specialises in a topic whether they want to respond to that person or if multiple people are interested, what should be said to be most correct.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mitchell (talk).

Discussion[edit source]

Sure - I didn't realize this was restricted, actually. I don't really see a strong reason to deny it, so long as the discussion stays relatively brief and on -topic. I wish this sort of thing didn't need a thread. ʞooɔ 10:43, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

do it - If it somehow becomes problematic just close it off again lol -Towelcat (talk) 11:15, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support - Since I have it muted and never go on reddit, would be useful if people could tag me there for broken wiki things etc, but as said by Cook, as long as it doesn't fill up with discussions. Elessar2 (talk) 11:24, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support - I think this would be useful for people that frequent the channel. The only downside I see is discussion happening in reddit-* channels but with the recent-changes-* channels that's almost always as simple to solve as "let's move to wiki-*" and doesn't happen a ton (or when it does, it doesn't really disrupt anything). zTUG5mD.png Crow  11:33, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support/Comment - Initially I was against opening it up because I felt that discussions to wiki-specific reddit threads may be better suited for discussion in the wiki-* channel. Seeing as how only admins can chat in the channels is somewhat unfair. After reflecting and reading more comments, I don't see a need to deny this request. As per Cook, as long as the discussions stays brief and on-topic there should be no problem. Shoyrukon (talk) 15:35, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support - Don't see a reason why it should be locked off, but like Cook said, as long as it doesn't sway off-topic and the bot posts remain the large majority of the channels content, then I'm fine with it. Talk-to Kelsey 15:39, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support - Can’t think of any “red flags” against this. Legaia 2 Pla · ʟ · 15:41, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Support - If people can handle the recent-changes-* channels, I don't see the reddit-* channels becoming an issue. -I Am Me Talk- 15:43, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

Sure - I never used them but they should be treated like the recent-changes- channels. Stian27 (talk) 07:31, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
