So obviously this would be for communities with very high standards for behavior/etc.
What would you all think about the usefulness of running some sort of basic semantic analysis (or even just word matching) on new posts, and popping up a little “nudge” when the post is questionable? Like so: (sorry, my attempts to be insulting are really lame)
Would a gentle nudge in the right direction be useful?
Another option would be to automatically catch txtspeak, all-caps, no-caps, etc, and offer the user an auto-correction before posting. Something like: “Hello Aja! We’ve automatically edited a bit of the spelling and/or grammar in your contribution. Please take a look over these changes, and feel free to make any additional corrections before submitting your post. Thanks!”
