I work at CEA on community epistemics and supporting high school outreach from a community health perspective. (opinions here my own).

Hi! I'm not an expert in survey design, but I'd love to get the most out of the data you collect here, so some thoughts as I read through it (ignore if unhelpful):
It's always easier to critique than to make things, so kudos for trying to do a thing and hope this is helpful.(I'll also probably just flag the obvious about selection bias and the sensitivity of this data.)
Modelling being emotive and raw while owning it e.g. this comment
More of a common move to invite people you agree with and don’t (probably separate discussions) to small group conversations on messenger/signal/facebook groups to air feelings, thoughts, and hash things out.
This seems worth an experiment.
It looks great, and there are a few others I like as well, but does this let you visualize your own credences? That's what seems like the value here, to me.
I don't know if it's exactly this that will save all communication or anything, but I would be excited to see if this kind of thing could be used to quickly convey takes on even hard community issues in addition to object level things, especially since it points in the direction of considering multiple hypotheses.
e.g. I really loved this picture from this post and even made this speadsheet so you could put in your own numbers, and it seems like a standard part of data visualization to let people see the differences between distributions clearly
Strong agree with "just because something was hard for staff, doesn't necessarily mean it was hard because the critical comments were wrong/misguided.", though I think "part of the reason some folks could find a situation like this stressful is precisely because they felt that some of the objections and critical comments were reasonable" doesn't differentiate between different worlds - I think there would be a lot of flurry and frenzy and stress basically independently of reasonableness of critique (within some bounds).
Fwiw, I do think "has no place in the community" without being owned as "no place in my community" or "shouldn't have a place in the community" is probably too high a simulacrum level by default (though this isn't necessarily a criticism of Shakeel, I don't remember what exactly his original comment said.)
Really appreciated a bunch about this comment. I think it's that it:
Is this different from how letters of intent usually work?
