There is currently open policy discussion on the locking and/or deleting personal attack based threads. I dont see much feedback on it yet, none from CF.
I keep reading over this post and as much as I agree in principal with some of it, in practice it seems to fall short while over exaggerating in other things.
One example: the org has been generally off-hands with the board since moderators have been in place - the post is overstating thier influence.
I have the right to speak here if the issue concerns me
Having backroom, under the table conversations smacks of exclusion, not inclusion and is simply not right. Not with decisions like this.

Homogeneity? We are still talking about a board based around bman, compared to the larger society around us I dont think that could even be possible (at least not with freaks like me). As far as differences and friction goes, absolutely, I think thats a natural effect. I guess being a moderator here is dangerously making me prone to thinking in the extreme cases of conflict since thats what I usually address.
If you are referring to my conversations with DM, thats not the case. When PM'ing people I sometimes try to get additional feedback which includes thier background belifes on what they think and post here.
Kinetic IV wrote:SB, that's the statement I was looking for. For someone coming along a couple of months from now and looking back at this, they'll understand what's going on with the side conversations. That's part of the transparency I was asking about.

spectabillis wrote:And I realized I did not open up a call for moderator nominations, these should be people the community voices out nominations for, no one nominating themselves, and completely open for discussion. Anyone think it they should be put to a vote?
This was my bad and its no one else's fault except mine.
Kinetic IV wrote:I'm a little peeved that an open call wasn't made because there are some damn good people that need to be considered.
The fault is all mine, I take full blame with that.I'm glad to see you're FINALLY getting help.
It's just me and Chai. Chai does far more than people probably know and I really value and appreciate his contributions, I would have walked by now if it was not for him and Emily. Bex is not a moderator, she is the official contact for certain things like tickets and lost+found but is signed up to the moderator group so she shows green.
The other problem is not many people want to be a part of the moderator team because of the animosity aimed towards people in that position. Each and every action is always controversial, and because you have to step into conflicts no one is ever happy.Now if you could only persuade the powers that be that the handful of Russian master sock puppet accounts needs to be booted and soon....

You can have them note spanky if they are interested.
