Revamp Rules and Staff List

Recommended Posts

This comes out of a warning I received for spamming in a thread that was technically not in chatter but was nothing as chatter (the dumb mare loli thread that got featured). My spam in question was a single post I made with a reaction image. It was my first post in weeks as well, hardly something needing that silly warning garbage, Clephas. 

This made me realize that there are two problems here. Severely uneven enforcement of rules by moderators (which has honestly been a chronic problem for Fuwanovel through its entire history), and secondly, I don't even know who the staff of the website even are anymore. I was never aware that Clephas had the ability to issue warnings like that, nor was I aware board mods had any power to give warnings. I was under the impression that they could delete/hide posts and what not but not cut off posting of a member completely for a time. That in of itself is not the issue. The issue is more that there is that the Fuwa Directory is completely out of date. I have no damn idea who does what, and who has what powers.

To solve both problems, there needs to be a retooling of the entire staff of Fuwanovel. Take a look at the directory and point out all of those who are not active, or no longer even run the project they are listed in. https://fuwanovel.net/about/our-team-fuwadirectory/

With this retooling of the staff (aka clean out the dead weight like myself), strong leadership absolutely needs to come down from the top and make abundantly clear what the rules of the forum are. The uneven application of rules needs to stop and more active leadership with clear lines of communication need to be implemented. This will give the mods much clearer direction of what is and isn't okay on this website. 

And no, this isn't a batman bitches about a handslap post. This is a response to a recurring problem with the leadership of fuwanovel today as I've seen this inconsistent rule enforcement multiple times with certain mods recently, and it follows a pattern that goes back to the days of Steve being an admin here. Those were bad days.

Sorry batman but this has been brought up already before and the result is always the same.

Send a PM to who? There is no leadership aside from Kaguya who rarely seems to be able to make a firm decision without input from the top, which doesn't exist anymore sadly. I've seen Kags step in before and attempt to resolve this problem, but clearly it has not been fixed (poor guy was on vacation too).

I don't know because I was never told. Just send a PM to anyone I guess lol

nothing will change though because they will answer that they will forward it like the real customer support

This isn't attack on the individual mods just FYI. This is more to point out the massive shortcomings of the current moderation system. Hell, even a quick link somewhere on the site with a clear, concise list of rules, and consistent enforcement from the mods would be an improvement over this vague, unclear, mystical system of globals, boards, and non-listed mods (such as myself).

If you want a short explanation of who can do what on the mod team, it's pretty much in the rules already. Also, moderators will enforce and interpret the rules a little differently. We have been making an effort recently to communicate more before taking action, + we keep a log of all moderation, so everyone knows what the other moderators are up to. (Especially for us board mods, so that the higher-ups knows what we're doing.)

Quote

Global Moderators and Board Moderators are responsible for carrying out the rules and it is up to them to interpret them and carry out an appropriate punishment for each situation.

I completely agree that the staff page needs a full re-work. It's ... very outdated. We don't even have a chat feature anymore, RIP. Certainly something that should be looked into.

If you stumble upon any piracy links or sexualized loli/shota content, please do report it.  I tried in the past to remove all direct mentions of piracy sites and links in a bunch of old threads, but it was quite frankly exhausting.  I spent hours and hours and hours doing nothing but that for several days before I got completely burnt out.  I still remove them whenever I happen to find them, but I don't have it in me to crawl the entire forum removing every bit of infringing content.

As far as I can tell, Kags and I cannot change that page.  If I had to guess, only admins or users with powers over content on the main site can do that.

I recommend looking at Google Tips & Tricks. Especially that first example under "How to Google It". Then just search keywords like "nodvd" "alpharom" and the known piracy sites. Might not be super helpful for the pedostuff though.

i mean, they have a good point. if youve seen these loli pics then why havent you reported them? is it solely for the purpose of "Look how useless the mods are allowing something that isnt allowed on the forums" that seems a bit unfair and hypocritical to complain about said subject and not do anything about them.
