Welcome to lj_policy!

We're glad you're here. This community will be used to gather your opinions about social and community policy.

We understand that there is a lot to absorb and process right now with the creation of LiveJournal, Inc. Since this is a transition for all of us, we want to initiate a dialogue with you, the users. We feel it is very important to hear your concerns before we release any changes to current policies, and we want to start this process right away.

As a starting point, we don't want to just guess what's important to you; we want to hear about it directly from you. Please take a moment to answer the questions below:

1) What is your greatest concern about LiveJournal's current policies?

2) Regarding your primary concern, are you aware of a site that handles that issue in a way that you like?

This is just a starting point to get your initial ideas. We know you have a lot more where these come from, and in the coming days and weeks we will make sure you have a chance to voice your opinions. We look forward to your comments.

As to your part c), that's certainly true, but I think it's very possible to answer the most burning questions of most users in a single post. In this case, the main ones were:

1. What will happen to me if one of my entries is determined to be 'adult content' and I didn't flag it that way? Am I in trouble? Suspended? Getting a 'first strike'?
2. (the one I used as an example above) What's in place to prevent abuse of this system? Isn't this just a ready-made flamewar tool for jerks?

I think those were fairly predictable. Lots of people had other questions -- exactly how does this work with communities, how does it know I'm underage, will this mess up the way my posts look to my readers who are adults, etc. -- but those two biggest ones, I think someone could have guessed that people would want to have that information right there in the post.
