Is this open thread not going to be a monthly thing?

FWIW I liked reading the comment threads here, and would be inclined to participate in the future. But that's just my opinion. I'm curious if more senior people had reasons for not liking the idea?

4rohinmshah6moI expected that it would be better for me to polish ideas before posting on the forum, and treated this as an experiment to check. I think it broadly confirmed my original view, so I'm not very likely to post top-level comments on open threads in the future, and I told the admins so. I don't know what their decision process was after that. (Possibly they expected that future open threads would be much quieter, since the two biggest comment threads here were both started by my top-level comments.)

I felt a bit uncertain about doing one every month, and was planning to start another one in October. Depending on how that one goes we might go with a monthly schedule, or maybe every two months is the right way to go.

Crossposted from the AI Alignment Forum. May contain more technical jargon than usual.

This is an experiment in having an Open Thread dedicated to AI Alignment discussion, hopefully enabling researchers and upcoming researchers to ask small questions they are confused about, share very early stage ideas and have lower-key discussions.
