Default Tifabelle's Nominee Q and A thread.

In the Moderator Q and A threads, every member is allowed to ask potential moderator candidates questions to more completely gauge how you think they'd act as a mod. They are free to answer or not answer these questions as they like. I would ask that you keep the questions and answers fairly serious, since you're trying to determine if each nominee will be a good fit as a moderator. Now, don't think you can't have any fun with this, just don't completely lose the plot for jokes I'd also ask that you not use these threads to pursue vendettas or cause trouble, as it would be rude to the nominees.
Threads will remain open for half a week, after which a voting thread will be opened.

That said, this is the Q and A thread for Tifabelle, so get to it.

I'm gonna ask all the nominees this one:

A member who you consider a close friend is being a dick/is violating the rules/being a naughty little piglet - their post/s have been reported, and you are the only mod available to deal with it.

What do?

"seemingly" to me? or "seemingly" to the staff as a whole? If it were just to me, I'd voice that in the discussion of the report and see what the others thought. If the post wasn't malicious, imo the thing to do would be to contact the reporter, explain our thinking, and ask them to clarify why they made the report/what it was that bothered them about the post (or invite them into that new forum to ask ).

If the report is ultimately unfounded, I'd (we'd) simply explain that to them.

If they're blatantly violating rules, I'd dole out the appropriate infraction and tell them to knock it off. If it's being a jerk without actually breaking rules, I'd still tell them to knock it off and that if it continued I'd have to infract them.

Like Octo I'm going to ask everyone the same question and see who answers it best, IMO: if you were made mod what's the first thing you'd do?

A question for all nominees:

You discover that a member has been talking shit about TLS outside the forum, but continues to visit/post here like nothing happened. Nobody else in TLS seem to be aware about it. How will you deal with it?

BAN EVERYONE! XD Aside from familiarizing myself with the basics (rules, control panel, etc), nothing to really do. It doesn't really require doing anything radical.

Nothing. They are allowed their opinions, and it wouldn't matter what happens on another site anyway.

Kripey is like Meryl Streep in Sophie's Choice.

You know, because she's old.

You have said that the previous staff reviews didn't achieve much and were largely ignored. Would you want to continue holding the reviews, and if so, how would you improve them?

Another question for all the nominees:

What would you do to promote inclusion/encourage participation from shyer/quieter/less active members? (Not just new members)

Follow-up question to my first one:

Someone named Octo wrote: I'd like to reverse Unlucky's question, kind of: TLS members have beef with each other that started outside of TLS but has now spilled out onto the forum. How would you deal with the situation? Bearing in mind that as much of the trouble occured off site and you have no frame of reference/are unable to take that into consideration?

I WOULD CHOOSE NEITHER. I WOULD SACRIFICE MY LIFE SO YOU BOTH COULD LIIIIIVE.

Or Sami, since you're rood enough to ask such an impossible question.

Fundamentally I don't think there's anything wrong with the staff reviews other than the fact that staff don't actually respond much (both immediately and long-term). As a staff member, I'd be certain to participate in the discussion, and annoy encourage the other staff members to do the same. And on top of that, make sure the staff are actually listening to and considering what's being said (or any overall themes seem to be in the reviews). If there appears that an individual mod or the team overall needs adjustment, I'd look to foster that change and motivate the team to move in the right directions for both the site and the community. I'm not afraid to call people out (preferably in a one-on-one setting), but I'm also big on helping people out and working together.
