Y'all wanted to know what's going on, so this is the thread where the staff will be doing just that. All pertinent information will be posted or edited into the opening post of this thread, and any time there's an update, myself or another moderator will bump the thread.

 

Now as for the things we'll be discussing with you....

Please note that this thread will be locked, and any comments, concerns, or suggestions you may have should either be PMed to a moderator or posted in the appropriate thread here.

Announcements as of March 24th, 2017:

 

  1. The Mod Team is not looking to promote anyone at this time, period. When we decide otherwise, the site will be informed and the matter will be handled more efficiently than Zai's promotion. Until then, we're sticking to the moderators we have. No promotions, no demotions.
  2. The Team is currently restructuring itself, and reassessing priorities. This goes along with the new draft of the site rules. Please note that there is no set deadline for completion. We will be taking as long as we need to fix issues within the staff and with the site proper. Updates as they come.
  3. The team will begin enforcing the rules more strictly. specifically, temporary bans will now be handed out more frequently on a case by case basis.  If the offense is severe enough or the user has accumulated enough points to warrant a temporary ban, it will be issued.

I have formerly withdrawn discussion of prohibiting political content in statuses.  There was no final decision, but I volunteered not to bring it up again and to simply be more strict.

I took action against Snatch Steal for hate speech in Winter's Status.  I issued a five day ban as punishment.  Subject to be overruled or changed.  At this time I do not have any peers online, so the verdict may differ if higher authority opposes it.

Team is still hashing out the details of the official statement regarding winter's ban.

Zai is beginning to draft plans for RP and Creative writing section rules updates. Possible subforum additions pending user and staff approval.

I have begun talks with the moderation team.  I am voluntarily stepping down from my position as General/Debates/Miscellaneous moderator.  My decision is my own, influenced only by my own circumstances and responsibilities.  I may return in the future if I am needed, but I will be stepping down from my position sometime in June.

Today is my last day as a Moderator.  My successor, Yui, has been selected and will be promoted most likely within the next twenty-four hours.  Thank you all for your cooperation, and thanks to the staff for being so patient with me in this lengthy process.  It was a pleasure to work with this staff, and if circumstances permit, I would gladly return in the future if you would have me.  Once more, for clarity, my removal comes at my own request.  If you wish to question me directly, my inbox is available.  My demotion will come at the hands of a Super Moderator for final closure.

 

Dad, signing off.

Well now that I'm in the seat, I should probably post here.

 

6/8/2017

Effective today, I'll be taking on a one-month trial period as Junior Moderator of the General section to serve as Dad's replacement. If I've been deemed by the mod team to be a suitable moderator for the section, I will be promoted to a proper Moderator. If not, it's back to normiehood for me. In either case, it will be a pleasure to work with you, fellow mods, as well as for you, non-mod members. Once this post is up, my immediate goal is to take some time to get a feel for the differences between moderator and member, as well as for the section I've been put in charge of (I actually almost never visit General; I'm still a bit confused as to why I got the spot despite that, but oh well). Once that's done, my plans for General - and mind you, these are entirely subject to change - are to generally maintain the status quo. My reasoning is as follows.

 

YCM has a history of reacting poorly to change, and I'm pretty bad with shaking things up as well, so I'd prefer to play it safe and stick to the idea that if the section isn't broken in some way, I don't really need to fix it. I don't want to be the guy that caused the next shitstorm that sparked up from a mod decision, y'know? Though, again, this plan is entirely subject to change. Maybe I'll think of some great thing that will change General for the better down the line...or maybe I won't. Perhaps I'll notice something wrong with the section and devise a means of fixing it...or maybe I won't. If you have any suggestions, comments, concerns, etc, about this post and the intentions I've stated to have within it, I'd be pleased to hear them wherever and whenever you think it's most convenient to reach me.
