    I know we said we'd keep Caring Void stuff super confidential unless there were a really important reason to share things. But today is that day:

    There are two threads next to each other in the Caring Void with thread titles ending with "2: electric boogaloo".

    I am just so proud of you all.

    Policy is generally that you can talk about whatever you can put in the void, we (mods) just can't.

    But this really is a beautiful event.

    As Chiomi said, this is confidential one-way; we won't disclose things about what people said if we can possibly avoid it (except for subpoenas, probably, or on rare occasions being too flaky to know where we heard something, or weird special exceptions we haven't thought of yet), but you're allowed to talk about what you said, or about things we said in response.

    Is there a thing describing the various confidentiality conventions with regard to the various Mad Science threads? Like, Caring Void has the poster able to share, mods need permission, while Pear Wiggler has a more complicated protocol where the poster can sometimes talk about the post but the contents of the post itself might be off limits without mod approval?

    I feel like it's not entirely clear what the mods expectations are with regards to sharing.

    Huh. I don't think we have that written up anywhere. Generally, you as poster can absolutely talk about anything you post and anything that happens in either place. If content is wiggleable, it'll probably still be wiggleable on repeat, so talking about it rather than quoting directly might be the way to go about it. My expectation, at least, is that we as mods don't discuss things that happen in the Void, but will frequently mention-but-not-quote stuff in the Wiggler: sometimes when we wiggle stuff we leave a note in the thread we wiggled from so people don't feel like stuff is just disappearing.

    anecdata that i really appreciate when mods note that something has been wiggled, it makes things a lot less confusing especially in fast/heavy conversation
