Default How Should MB Be Moderated?

Hello musicbanterers and banterins

  • This is a multiple choice poll that makes several statements. Please vote for those statements that you agree with.
  • The poll will be open for two weeks.

PS! We humbly ask that you leave a post in this thread explaining your votes. Also, if any option is unclear, please ask about it before you vote.



Poll options

Also, the poll options have been shorted down because of a 100 characters rule. I give you the intended poll options below :

Equality
  • 1A. The rules should be applied equally to all members (ex. no favoritism, rules apply equally to mods and users)
  • 1B. The rules should NOT be applied equally to all members (ex. mods are generally more lenient with long time members and mods than others)
Safe zones
  • 2A. Rules should apply equally to all forums
  • 2B. Rules should NOT apply equally to all forums (ex. The Lounge forum less strict or other designated "safe zones")
Short, nonsense posts
  • 3A. Outside safe zones, mod policy should allow for short, nonsense posts (ex. one-word posts are okay)
  • 3B. Outside safe zones, mod policy should discourage short, nonsense posts (ex. you can get away with a few, but not many)
  • 3C. Outside safe zones, mod policy should prohibit short, nonsense posts (ex. one-word posts are not allowed)
Mods reaction policy
  • 4A. General mod policy should be to react to every instance where a rule is broken (ex. the mods react the first time and every other time a user breaks a rule)
  • 4B. General mod policy should allow for mods NOT to react to an instance where a rule is broken (ex. allows for mods to first react to rule breaking when member does it repeatedly)
Mods transparency policy
  • 5A. Details of rule enforcement is ultimately between a mod and a user (ex. Mod-user PMs can remain secret)
  • 5B. Details of rule enforcement can ulimately be subject to other mods scrutiny (ex. Mod-user PMs are visible to other mods or can be made available)
  • 5C. Details of rule enforcement can be subject to public scrutiny (Mod-user PMs can be made available to all)
Mods punishment policy
  • 6A. For punishment, there should be a general policy to use temporary infractions (enough infractions result in a ban)
  • 6B. For punishment, there should be a general policy to use warnings, infractions / temp bans and permabans
  • 6C. There should be no general policy for how punishment is carried out
Mods anonymity policy
  • 7A. For rule enforcement, moderators should use a joint, anonymous account
  • 7B. For rule enforcement, moderators should use their personal accounts
Trial run
  • 8A. A new moderation policy should have a trial run first (ex. 1 - 2 months)
  • 8B. A new moderation policy should NOT have a trial run first (implemented immediately)
Mod team
  • 9A. The mod team should be bolstered with additional mods.
  • 9B. The mod team should NOT be bolstered with additional mods.
  • 9C. The current mod team should be retained.
  • 9D. Some or all of the current moderators should be replaced.
Other
  • 10. Some of my concerns are not listed in the individual items, but I will voice them in a reply.

I see the loaded phrasing has continued on into this new poll. It would have been nice if you had tried to be neutral in the way you presented the options.

I have tried to be neutral. Which option(s) do you find to be loaded?

Also, the various options here were discussed in the old poll thread. I wish you would've given your constructive feedback there before the poll was posted.

Yes, discussed via walls of text between the handful of people who had time to wade through it all. Apologies for not having as much free time as you during what you know was my first week at a new job.

Ugh, it has a spelling error in it.

I think it is kinda loaded both ways. I imagine many will think that "the rules should NOT be applied equally to all members" initially sounds disagreeable, but that the example "mods more lenient with regulars" sounds agreeable.

No, it's the example I'm talking about. It shouldn't be about being "more lenient with regulars" it should be about taking context into account with rules enforcent versus an emphasis on consistency regardless of context.

So, is there no option for "I don't want anything to change" or do I have to choose something?

Yeah I'm not voting whatsoever the atmosphere is amazing how it is right now, and I refuse to take part in some sort of rule change plus I don't want to read all that.

Come on, Jansz. The members were demanding a poll be posted, tore can't please everyone at once. It's not his fault that not everyone with an opinion wasn't a part of the discussion, just as it's not your fault you were at a new job and not able to spend free time discussing the poll. At least cut him some slack on that point.
