Updated the categories that moderators have access to, due to some inconsistencies regarding staff categories
Conversely, the removal of c-mods has led to various aspects of the site being tweaked to remove information regarding them
Ultimately, the category/group moderator features are fairly hardcoded, and it makes more sense to welcome Armaros and J into proper moderatorship than it does to “fix” the c-mod features.
Moving forward, there are currently no c-mods, and we have yet to discuss the future of its existence. The group for c-mods has been made hidden from view for the time being, in case we revisit this idea in the future. Suggestions, feedback, and concerns regarding this are welcome in #meta:forum, and can still be emailed to me.
Code of Conduct
- Added the Code of Conduct
- Renamed the “Forum Etiquette” policy to “Posting Etiquette”.
The Code of Conduct covers incidents regarding hateful or disruptive conduct, harassment, impersonation, account trading, and the distribution of malicious programs.
Users have always been expected to follow basic human principles, which imply things such as “don’t harass” or “don’t intentionally spam reports and flood the queue”.
However, although a lot of these things have been implicit, or ultimately are just assumable, there are instances where having a written copy of these various principles makes sense. It keeps users accountable because they explicitly know examples of misconduct, and it keeps staff accountable to take action when misconduct occurs.
As per usual: discussion, questions, and concerns regarding policies can be posted in #meta:forum. Depending on the nature of the question/concern, they can also be emailed to me.
