Proposal - The Lab - encouraging critiques/comments

We'd like to thank the community for the wide ranging discussion on our prior proposal. We'd like to submit a new proposal after extensive debate within the AC -- we believe this takes into account much of the feedback that was received.

We are proposing to create a new category of poem called The Lab. Poems in The Lab will still show up in The Stream and elsewhere, however they will be specially marked and visible. Submission to The Lab will be limited in several ways.

The detail of the proposal, and an opportunity for discussing this further, is available in the forum: https://www.neopoet.com/forum/23682

The forum discussion will be open through June 29th.

We are attempting to make everyone's experience on the site more personally gratifying. The AC is proposing changing Neopoet so that, before posting a new poem, a member must make three comments on other member's stream & workshop posts. This will guarantee more comments on other posts and, we believe, improve the user experience.

Specifically:
One "credit" will be awarded for a new comment of any length on a stream or workshop poem (except for your own). For simplicity, no "credits" will be awarded for prior comments before this initiative.
Three "credits" will be spent to post a poem (in the stream or in a workshop)
New members, and all existing members as of the start of this initiative, will be granted a certain number of "credits" - initially, we are proposing enough to allow two poems to be posted.
"Credits" expire after 30 days
One can check their own balance, but only trustees & advocates can check the balance and transactions for other members
"Credits" are only awarded to comments at least at the 25% percentile in terms of size (based on our analysis of almost 200k comments, that's 16 words or longer).

We welcome the opportunity for everyone to voice their opinions and will take community feedback into consideration before drafting a final proposal.

Following the precedent set during the "one poem per day" initiative, we will then submit this proposal to the community for a referendum.
