No offense but you saying this 1. doesn't help 2. Your solution of becoming a mod ..tbh ..i believe wouldn't help very much . :) ..bye now
@ParthKohli I don't think so. Agent sniffles was not appointed.
I do not have any comment for 2. But I still think that there are some users who deserved to be moderators and were not appointed.
@ParthKohli Well,I also deserve a position then.
@hartnn deserves to be a Mod.
where did that come from !! ?
I know each and every contribution here, and they are appreciated. Yes, @hartnn is in my list of must be mods. :)
I agree with @uri
OMG , i am blushing !! :P
Actually, we are not nominating here. Let's just make this reach the admins.
I think @hartnn ,@ParthKohli ,@hba ,@apoorvk can be the best mods.
no i agree 100 percent with hartnn bein a mod..and another i would put down is cliffs edge...always helps explains and hasn't let me down yet ...and doesn't do it in condecending tone at all..helps me learn..they both do....and when it comes to moderating..id say they already have the mentaility ....but thats due to various shout box convos ive witnessed
Well he is a troll too.@Spectrum
@Spectrum: Cliff's Edge in that list too :D
it doesn't work this way....as far as i know ....... there are no polling/nominations for the mods, entirely an admin's decision.
@hartnn You are right.
well -waves my hand in a mods face- you will not find that annoying and you will make hartnn and cliff a mod
@hartnn YOU SHOULD BE A MOD,NO MATTER WHAT,BECAUSE YOU FOLLOW TO CoC.
@hartnn should be a mod for sure.
Okay, so again, we're not nominating till the admin allows us to. Haha
i am sure there will be some users who don't like me being a mod......
ill smack em with a rubberducky ....the putsomesenseinthesefoolsanator
Hey,everyone likes you and @ash2326 he deserves too.
Another one in my list, that is. ^
noone would ever vote for me im too mu ch of a smart mouth
Spectrum is correct, having a conversation about this in OpenStudy Feedback is going to do nothing but cause drama. The moderators were appointed based on who the moderators recommended to us, we vetted the users and found nothing in their history that would disqualify them from modship. This doesn't mean there aren't other users who we're also considering. These were just the first three that we were able to clear out of the pool of suggestions that came from the mod corps and the admins. I'm sorry you disagree with some of the decisions, but if you have a real problem with them the way to deal with that is to email us and have a conversation with the admins - as we're the ones who made the decision - instead of starting a soap box thread in Feedback. Conversations like this are difficult to have in a public forum because we can't mention names to avoid hurting people's feelings, we can't talk about specific instances, and there usually are multiple conversations going on at once in a thread like this. So, if you really object - email us and we'll think it over and chat with you about it.
1) Agree, just wanted to say that I, personally, did not nominate. I discouraged them to nominate individuals. It was just a "feedback" as said in the group name. Never went into the details. 2) If the moderators were good enough, there'd have been an effect. I do not see any action in chats by moderators. I have no problem with how they have behaved in the past. Suffice to say that they are unable to control the site. Why is that so?
The new moderators were appointed LESS THAN TWELVE HOURS AGO. Give them a minute to get their bearings straight, Parth.
3) This discussion is for, of and by the users. There is no reason why I need to personally contact via email.
Hey ..this isn't a democracy....its Openstudy ..so hush your mouth
Frankly dealing with a full blown multi-troll spam accounts on their first day is quite beyond what is both expected and possible. It is both very stressful and technically demanding if you have not done it before. We were there to deal with it, and we did. What you did not see behind the scenes was the tens of accounts that were suspended before they were able to pollute open study.
I haven't been a mod on this site obviously but I have moderated multiple forums sites and even games a while back...being a mod isn't tbh glamour ....its actually hard work and the pressure required depending on where you are one is quite demanding
Hmm, I agree. But I have not seen the action taken on the website to PREVENT these kind of users. The site is now too vulnerable.
Why are people allowed to talk about dating when it isn't the topic?
Define isn't a topic
@ParthKohli Well i have put a suggestion to remove the music chat because of this reason. It is on number 3 of the feedback portion.
Well the people on Music chat are really mean they will talk to you only if you talk about relationships and Bf/Gf,not about studies..Hey can i give a demo? :D
uri ..no ...just ..no :P
Who wants me to? xD
oh look ...an example of why i switched to the digi clock on my phone
@ParthKohli check the Music chat now xD
When they're appointed, and formally turned into a mod, that's 9 hours ago.. I doubt if they've been online in these 9 hours.. (at least I haven't seen them yet) :\ If they are not online, how can they be supposed to ''bring some effects''?! I agree with @TranceNova .. Mods have done a lot behind the scene.. :'(
I love how a admin said I am right about ...uh im not sure...BUT HA I WAS RIGHT >.>
Reason why music chat is used for Relationshis Music goes with plays plays are in the drama section and the only reason why you ask for help with a relationship is drama ...yw
"But I have not seen the action taken on the website to PREVENT these kind of users." What would you have us do, Parth? The fact of the matter is that the moderators do a lot of work that you don't see. The volume of abuse emails has increased along with traffic to the site, as it always does in these circumstances. The amount of stuff they just have to look through is daunting. None of the admins, myself included, have been able to be on the site recently. Yet, things have still continued to be relatively normal despite increasing traffic and, therefore, increasing abuse. Think about what that says about the endurance, resolve, and dedication of our mod corps. I'm thrilled with what they've been able to do while I haven't been around as much, and I'm going to do what I can to support them by giving them quicker methods to getting IP bans and appointing new moderators as we are able. So, then, that leaves the only question that you really need to answer: What are you going to do to in response to the existing moderators and new moderators efforts to make OpenStudy a better place? Complain about them or work with them? Cheers.
I report. I watch. I watch. I watch. I watch. I watch. I watch. A mod comes. The mod goes away. Trolls come back. This process repeats. And I never complained against the moderators—just trying to find out where the process went wrong: on the moderators' end, or the users' end?
If it is the users' end, then why is there no action? If it is the moderators' end, then why is there no action?
Parth, the trouble is, not all abuse reports are about things that are actually against the Code of Conduct. Including not all of yours. I think if you're sitting there watching for every abuse report you file, you should ask yourself why you're doing that. I cannot believe that you don't have more productive things to do, whether on OpenStudy or elsewhere, than sit and see whether you can make a note about mods not doing the job you think they should be doing. farmdawgnation already covered this, but I'll reiterate it: the mods have been doing an outstanding job, particularly given the amount of stuff they've had to deal with the last couple of months. We are eternally grateful to them, and you should at least be partially grateful for the fact that OpenStudy has not descended into anarchy, entirely due to their efforts. If there's a place the process has gone wrong, it's in volume. The volume of users has gone up drastically, and until recently we hadn't appointed any more new mods. We're now in the process of changing that, as you have evidently noticed. Last but not least, our choices of moderators are not up for debate unless they abuse their power or grossly misapply the code of conduct. They're certainly not up for debate until said moderators have gotten a chance to actually learn the ropes. And questioning the choices before anyone's had a chance to do anything is a great way to make the moderators develop a silo mentality where they have to consider it them vs the users. The moderators should be treated with respect, even if you disagree with them, just as with every other user on this site. Complaints about the moderators should go directly to us, the admins, via the abuse or contact emails. That is all.
End Convo line right here lol that summed it up ^ _____________________________________________________
Why does everyone think that I am the villian here? I clearly stated that it is "some users", not me alone.
i should be a moderator
hmm i can still c omment on posts? i thought i was already permabanned?
Ok. Thanks for the opinion. But keep in mind, we are still new. Atleast, I am still learning. I am sure we will get better at some point in time, but at the moment we are new. MWe aren't that active, well atleast I am not because I don't want to screw anything up yet. Once I understand the whole process of when to hand a suspension or a warning out, I am sure I will progess in it and become successful..
I am sorry if you think I am inactive, but I was suggested to go at my regular schedule of my day here. I have school, I have homework, My mom told me not to get on the computer unless I had a question on my homework, I follow her rules. But now that I am told I am inactive, I have convinced my mom that I stay on this site AT ALL TIMES, while I can.
