@Preetha @Shadowfiend Hey! There have been tons of arguments about Ambassadors lately and I've been one for about 7ish months now and have been quite content with my role the way it is (even after having been a group mod) and not craving more power "just because" I'm wondering what the Ambassadors roles to you guys are? To me, I thought amabassadors were here to welcome new users and introduce them to the CoC, helping them with work when it's possible and just being generally helpful and encouraging them to behave.

    Since we've gotten the new batch of Ambassadors I've noticed that just like the first round so many have suddenly decided that we need more power and we need to enforce the CoC and be able to warn people etc etc. I just think that if you wanted any of us doing that you would have made us mods instead. The two roles are completely different and need to stay separate, I think?

    Like i said in my last post. No matter the role we have on Open Study, it is one another's role to enforce the CoC politely to one another. No matter, whether it be a Ambassador or Mod, we all have the task of making sure user's abide by those rules. It is not a one person task. It is the task of ALL who join open study to make sure not only we follow the CoC but to make sure other users do as well so we can have a great community!

    Well, a general enforcement of the rules is fine. But the new Amby's want to have the ability to start dishing out warnings. And Swag... I don't think they'd mind on this one considering I specifically want *his* answer. Not a regular user ;)

    dishing out warning is such a beautiful thing that if it goes to wrong hand or to everyone then i guess people will quit coming to OS because there is no limit of stupidity of human being and i know a few people here who keeps bugging even for minute mistake they can warn verbally but i dont think its worthy to ask for power to warn others, thats futile

    Listen up cowboy and cowgirls. Ambassadors aren't police. You're not a moderator and it's not your job to enforce the Code of Conduct. Don'cha know that Ambassadors are a welcome comity? It's not ya' job to ban people or delete comments. Ambassadors are important because they welcome the new people and show them around. We need ya' guys to keep traffic to the site because many new people would sign up and leave the site without ya' guys. Now, I don't wanna hear any naggin' about your position anymore. Adieu.

    So, two things. We're a little more lenient on getting tagged now since we're not on site as often. Don't have a tagging-fest, 'cause we'll get annoyed, but in critical situations or when you really need an opinion, use your judgement (prithee make it good judgement). Part 2, I already covered this in the other thread. Ambassadors are here to welcome and guide, moderators are here to do the same in addition to managing Code of Conduct violations.

    Okay, can you stop calling me out? Every. single. post I have made this morning you have decided to have your attitude for whatever reason and I think it's uncalled for. I have only answered a question and asked a question that wasn't even directed to you. I haven't once called you out and you insist on retorting everything I say. If ambassadors in general would just be content with what they signed up for and not try to change what they knew they were getting into I wouldn't be asking/saying what I am.

    I think you guys should just stop worrying about the new ambassadors because it is not like they will get the new roles they ask for. nothing will change in what an ambassador does therfore from here on out things will be the same so you stress it for no reason. I suggest you all just stop the convo before one of you loses your ambassador role.

    Aye, Ambassadors, stop arguing publicly. It reminds me when my young cousins argue over who gets to play with the toy.

    Phew! This is such a long post. First, I like my Ambassadors a lot. They represent the best of OpenStudy. Welcoming. Warm. Nice, Helpful. A part of that role is to guide new users to find the right features. And tell them about the code of conduct. Sometimes I ask them to remind users to use tags or do the FB like thing. So, if my A team can get new and old users to abide by the CoC, while holding out the welcome mat, we would all be so happy. Unfortunately, not everyone behaves nicely. I would like my A team to then chose an action that does not conflict with the above. That means: be nice,be helpful and be welcoming even when in a conflict. This could mean you bring this to a mod's attention. This could mean you politely point out the COC. This does not mean getting into a flaming war. So no new powers are being handed out here. I have the greatest faith in your ability to do your Ambassador job. On that note, I can't understand why we are having these heated discussions amongst the Ambassadors. This is very disheartening. Did I do something wrong in choosing you all to be Ambassadors? I am crushed. I want you to support one another, not get into painful arguments. If you disagree, learn to do it politely. Don't do it publicly. So, I am going to keep this post to remind you of how not to be. Anyone has problems with this, or wants to step down, dm me. We will still love you, because that is who we are. But lets do a good job on being an Ambassador.
