Welcome to the Weekly* Monday Discussion!
* Disclaimer: Not actually weekly
katze: Not only is it actually on a Monday this time, you’re
stuck here with your favorite discussion host, katze!
Audience Member: You’re a mod?
katze: Somehow! Even better, that’s surprisingly close to what I’m here for! I’m actually here for a few reasons, so let me speak for us – The Moderation Team. We know we’re not flawless. Look at us, they sent me to host this! Surely this is a sign of our fallibleness as mods! (At least the other mods. I’m perfect.)
Audience Member: shut up katze
katze: Point taken. Anyway, we’d first like to discuss us. We know we’re flawed. We’d like to better ourselves for you, and we have ideas on how to improve already, but we’d like your feedback. Yes, even you, the reader!
In order let people give feedback anonymously, we created a form with some questions. At the end you may optionally leave your username if you’d like it to not be anonymous feedback. You may still answer them in this thread, if you’d like!
If you'd like to answer in thread, here are the questions!
- Do you think we are too lenient/strict regarding punishment lengths?
- Do you think the Forum Mafia rules are in need of changing? If so, what would you change?
- What is your biggest issue with the moderation system currently?
- Do you have anything else you’d like to say, that the prior questions did not quite reach?
Additionally, we’ve recently run into problems with the Team Player MVP Awards, one where categorizing Third Parties/Neutrals is… inconsistent and awkward, to say the least.
We’ve thought of a few ideas internally, but would like to instead ask the people how they think this should be handled in the future! Even if that suggestion is “lol just delete the team awards stupid mods”, we’d like to hear it!
