Honestly there are a few good mods i like...but the others are just terrible, seriously why would you block people from being able to message you because you haven't fanned them? What kind of mod is that lazy that they block messaging! Most mods will barely even respond to a tag (i understand they get tagged a lot) send a courtesy message apologizing for not being able to respond! Fix the filters, auto-delete multi-day old questions, actually PAY ATTENTION to the community they are supposed to be moderating. As well as the Ambassadors chosen need to be more mature. Not all are immature but a lot are.
certain Ambassadors should not be ambassadors because sometime people just take that power and use to the extream on some people
it can get out of control real quick
Indeed it can. Besides that the admins are virtually nonexistent and leave everything to the mods to take care of. They are never on, and when so they are inactive.
As I said last time lol. I agree with this whole post, sadly I think it will stay this way for a while. I also don't really think getting a new partner is going to change the community. We need new ACTIVE moderators & Admin. As for Ambassadors I do agree there is a handful that do not do their task AT ALL.
Exactly! @SWAG the way this site is handled is like the playground of a preschool will ambient doping teachers.
agreed both of you(:
I thought I could copy my comments from a previous post .I think it answers this question too. I have to point about something on "not being able to message mods" .Firstly note that most of them are users with high smartscore .Believe me if you have a large enough smartscore 90+ you will get tonnes of messages like "help me please ", "can u help in bio ?". or a set of questions itself as message .Even many users tag you evrywhere so that you become confused/annoyed .Thats the reason they make restrictions on messaging option.So that wouldnt be nice to tell some mods are not worth it just because they dont accept messages. you can always use the report abuse button .It notifies all mods about the problem. About the suggestion part .The team is working hard on stabilizing the system now .That is the reason why all the suggestions including yours are piled up .That is also the reason the site is down frequently .When the work on stabilizing is finished ,hopefully we will be getting new features and our suggestions will be looked into .Until then please show patience .When the site is down ,try to have a positive attitude as @dumbsearch2 "I have a life. I go and breath air. I come back, the site is up. " I do not support comments like "admins are lazy " .Just because in a particular time they dont show up doesnt mean that they are not doing their job .There are many things happening behind the scenes .Rest assured you will soon see the difference.
*Neglect some part of second paragraph :) .
I think you dont have complains on site being down in your post.
my paragraph should cover it
oh wait no...They really need to fix this site. I would say instead of random shut downs and re-directs why not just go on late at night (who cares if admins and engineers need sleep, people are losing sleep trying to get help because of the ruins of this site) and fix it, no BS, just fix it
Yep good point ...Infact last time the site was down it was at 12:30 am Pacific Time .That time was selected for the reason you mentioned above
But what if the site goes down at a random time due to a script error?There would be no other option other than close it for some time.
I hear that admins are doing their best to stabilize the system.Soon lets hope we will have a better Openstudy :)
i script error is different. The admins should not be touching it though. Engineering team should be. As said by @Preetha to me in a PM
No idea about that.Lets see what Preetha Ma'am has to say abt this.
Probably wont view this for long.
