  1. select NowCIssueWriteInOne, NowCIssueWriteInTwo, CommunityWriteIn1, CommunityWriteIn2, CommunityWriteIn3 from data where (EducationCredentials = "Master's" or EducationCredentials = "PhD" or IQ >= 139 or SAT >= 1490 or SAT2 >= 2250 or ACT >= 33) and (LessWrongUse = "I've posted in Discussion, but not Main" or LessWrongUse = "I've posted in Main");
  2. even more tolerant of idiots than it once was
  3. eternal september
  4. Too few people. In particular, most of the people who were active on LW at its peak are now gone.
  5. Easy to get high karma by posting a lot of mediocre comments
  6. Focus on nitpicking instead of community building
  7. Community is splintered and LessWrong is no longer the default place to seek out or share good content
  8. Women
  9. Topical organization. Needs to be easier to find the posts that I am interested in.
  10. THAT IS NOT WHAT DUNNING-KRUGER MEANS. DUNNING KRUGER IS THE TENDENCY OF BELOW-AVERAGE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THEY ARE AVERAGE BUT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BEHAVIOR OF COMPETENT PEOPLE. IN FACT, IN THE ORIGINAL DUNNING-KRUGER STUDY PEOPLE AROUND THE 70-80TH PERCENTILE ACCURATELY ASSESSED THEMSELVES AS ABOVE-AVERAGE.  fuck. does anyone ever fact-check this shit? http://www.talyarkoni.org/blog/2010/07/07/what-the-dunning-kruger-effect-is-and-isnt/
  11. by social I mean more social media. I don't really wanna hang out with any of you guys, lol.
  12. Difficulty to accept new people in. Barrier to entry causes strange filtering of people coming in not that the high phase is over.
  13. Very thin-skinned and singleminded; critics tend to get dogpiled far out of proportion
  14. Unwelcoming for newcomers and of people who are not familiar with ALL the jargon
  15. Newcomers
  16. In-jokes
  17. Knights of /r/new , people who go out to make sure well thought out comments get attention, and bad ones are improved with a collaborative spirit
  18. Culture formation
  19. Practical skills that showcase rationality
  20. Easier way to have open discussions or else a lower barrier to starting threads
  21. The really interesting parts seem to have largely been subsumed by MIRI
  22. Too tolerant of arrogance and narcissism
  23. More focus on core content (the Sequences, etc)
  24. Lack of thought and due vigilance before expressing ideas.
  25. Delusions of grandeur, leading to pseudoscience and crackpottery.
  26. Too much inperson interaction- the community moved offline.
  27. Site not mobile friendly
  28. People left, not sure entirely why
  29. Excluding the occasional post from Anna, which is as good as the old stuff used to be
  30. Insufficiently tolerant of trolls/cranks
  31. Smart people who can write well on interesting topics
  32. It's over.
  33. exit of early community members with limited succession planning, combined with early members' apparent disdain for LW as it exists
  34. Failure to know that sources even exist
  35. Most of the good discussion moved to facebook
  36. Most of the practically inclined people left or moved to EA
  37. Development of expertise
  38. Mostly the main writers left. But also the NRx vote manipulation.
  39. Too tolerant of Thought Police
  40. More openness to discussion of other topics
  41. No new content from the people who wrote content worth reading (e.g. Eliezer, Brienne, Julia, Kaj, Scott... exception: Daniel Dewey)
  42. Decline in new content because of lack of remaining low-hanging fruit (not that it was especially low to begin with)
  43. Decline in new content from founders because they're focused on more direct work than blogging about rationality
  44. The software & culture is bad at filtering the best content to the top and making the worse content less visible
  45. Evaporative cooling where the awesomer people leave, becaues they are busy and because the replies to their posts/comments provide them with more annoyance than value.
  46. Collaboratively developing ideas together (including ideas that start out as speculative/shaky)
  47. Norms of attempting to learn from disagreements (e.g., by switching to a higher bandwidth form of communication to hash things out one-on-one)
  48. Too tolerant of people with IQs below 130.
  49. Failure to demand high quality political argument.
  50. Moderation for quality
  51. Moderation for offence
  52. wait are you duplicating the same questions under different headers?
  53. not overly high standards,  just not a very civil or welcoming climate . why write content for free and get trashed when I can go write a grant application or a manuscript instead?
  54. Not enough (good) engagement if you do post something
  55. I don't understand much stuff, or don't understand the relevance quickly enough.
  56. I've gone full diaspora; I follow Scott and Ozy on Tumblr and am generally annoyed with anti-LW types and also nrx-defensive types there, but never visit LW proper.
  57. Departure of many of the best posters from the main site.
  58. Virtual meetups would be nice.
