people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V

I like the idea, but I also am very skeptical on the execution.

I think I would be more fond of this idea if it came with the complete dissolution of the staff section.

No point in having two private sections for handling moderation problems.

Pretty interesting.

But that begs the question. "How do we know they really deleted it?"

Not sure if that'll be possible. We need a staff section to keep record of warnings & infractions anyway. And we do use the staff section for content creation and discussion for the front site as well.

Then make a section for warnings and infractions only? Is that a thing that is doable?

Why are you hiding discussion of content creation for the front site anyway? Shouldn't that kind of thing be a point of discussion for the entire community?

I really dont see the point in it anymore. I've come over to Yop's side of the discussion and feel like a staff section isn't necessary, or at the very least it doesn't need to be hidden. Transparency and communication people.

Mods don't need their own clubhouse hidden from the rest of the world anymore.

I agree. I would much rather things be said to my face than not, especially if there is a problem with something I've done on the Forums. I don't think Mods/Admins should discuss problems in private and talk about the individuals involved without including them. And I see you've made this new private Forum to erase that, but it's a terrible idea. It's just adding more secret Forums that not everyone can read which could potentially repeat the same shit that we're worried about. And as said there's no point in having a staff section AND this new section.

I think the fact that the Mods/Admins are so desperate to not have the staff section terminated really says something... what's so important you've got to keep locked away and not put out into the open? Seriously.

As good as it sounds, I'm not sure if complete transparency will work. Say something like what happened back it January goes down again. Where exactly is staff supposed to communicate while everyone else is flipping the fuck out?

Msn?

Skype?

Your own IRC channel?

PMs?

There's plenty of ways to contact each other mate.

All of us would have to be on at the same time to use those programs dude. And using PMs would just make the process that much longer. We created the new section specifically so we wouldn't have to waste time PMing everyone.

Then whats so different about a hidden section? If the suggested venue for them to talk it out is still a private one that doesnt involve the rest of the forum then is a mod section hidden away for those instances so bad?

I think that the problem people are having with "public feedback" is that they are concerned about reprisals - be it insults, passive-aggressive treatment, friendships ruined, whatever - and if people have issues with talking to staff about things like that, a hidden forum that is going to expose them like that is no different than sending a PM to all of staff or whatever, because names and reputations and whatever opinion has been formed of this person is going to come into play instead of this person having their fair shake.

idk
