In Topic: THE MODERATOR REPORT [Staff Transparency Thread]

24 March 2017 - 08:14 PM

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.

THIS is nothing but trying to piss people off. Even if it's in text, I can hear every word of this in a sneer. Either stop the antagonization or GTFO of the thread.

I know I'm not a mod, but this is ticking me off.

I'd rather you not start a fight here, Tes. Nipping the flaming in the bud before it starts. This is everyone's warning, or we just might have to have a live-fire test of these temp bans ;)

This doesn't have anything to do with Warning points. It has to do with the penalty you get for the temporary ban and the time the ban lasts for.

You missed what I was getting at. What I meant by bringing up warning points was that, if I'm forced to scale punishments to the number of times a person has offended, rather than, say, what exactly was done and why, then my example (Vol Vrac) would simply be getting warning points, instead of what is, in my opinion, temp ban worthy offenses.

 

But, we're getting grossly off-topic here. I think that the general consensus is that yes, the staff should make more frequent uses of temp bans, yes? And if so, I'll make sure we have something pertaining to that in the new draft of the site rules.

Why do you want wiggle room when you already have such for warning pt hand outs. It's not hard to have an objective yet progressive way to implement Giga's proposal.

Because every person and most every offense is different. Actions have context and I'd rather not be forced to hand out a punishment that may not be appropriate based on an arbitrary guideline. Vol Vrac is new but I'd say he's said much more offensive things than others have received warning points for, as an example.
