Forum Team New Years Update

9 posts in this topic

6coRjXq.jpg

Hello everyone,

 

Its been a while since we last spoke, in fact this is my first Forum Team Update so far. There's been a lot changing in the team membership and mostly leadership wise in the last few months. In November, we saw Paelo leave us as Forum Team Director and move on to greener pastures. After that, Viest took over the team as our director for the remainder of November, and early December. Leaving on his own terms, Veist decided to give up Forum Team Directorship and return to being a manager; leaving the position for me to fill. He has since left his position in the forum team, due to unrelated circumstances.

 

There hasn't been a lot changed around here with the last few directors, however that will change going into the new year. As Director, I have several plans on how to revitalize and renovate the forums, most of which are already in progress. Below you'll find a list of projects that the Forum Team has been working on, as well as future projects yet to come. My goal for January is to get done with all of the things listed below as "What are we working on right now?", to bring in the new year with some much needed changes to everyone's favorite mineman roleplay forum.

 

What are we working on right now?

Forum Warning Appeals Rework

I have tasked @devvy with writing and eventually publishing a new rework for our Forum Warning system. The system as it is today is a remnant of a previous method of moderating the forums, on in which several warnings were given out every day and then appealed later. Following in the direction of previous leaders, the Forum Team no longer follows that model. We prefer to take a more soft approach, hiding posts that violate the rules and giving out verbal warnings to people who frequently violate those rules, and only giving out warnings when it eventually becomes necessary.

 

That, among other things is why our plan to rework Forum Warning Appeals includes the following:

-Removal of the one-month waiting period for warnings to be appealed

-Changing appeals to be sent to the Forum Team Managers to be dealt with, rather than the person who gave the warnings.

 

Forum Rules Rework

This is something that Paleo tasked me with when I had just joined the Forum Team months ago, however neither he nor Veist were able to get this rework out; however completed it may be. I plan to get it published as one of the first reworks sent out in the new year.

 

Clubs Rework

As many of you may have seen in our "Your View" thread, I have tasked @Crinky with working on a rework for the clubs system. There has been much debate among the Forum Team Management as to what to do with the feature, if you would like to be involved in the solution I encourage you all to visit the Your View thread I'll link below to leave your thoughts.

What are we planning for the future?

Forums Rework

Something that has been majorly requested from me since I took over, and I'm sure the same goes for previous directors; is reworking specific forum sections. When it comes time to work on this, expect to see a "Your View" thread up about the subject where you can put down what you would like to see changed about how our forums are arranged, or even what new sections you would like to see on our forums.

 

Manager Hiring

With recent management changes, I'm currently down to only one out of our normal three Forum Team Managers. After we get these projects done, I'll be recruiting from among our current FM's for our new management.

 

Team Recruiting

After hiring new managers, I'll be getting together with them to see about recruiting new team members. It is something we could do with for right now, however with just myself and Fawb in management I feel like the pool of perspectives on potential new members is fairly short, and I would like to get a few new eyes in the process before making any decisions. As of right now, we are not currently seeking new members. However, should you put up an application it will simply be kept until we begin recruitment again later on.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns be sure to address them in the thread below. As a parting message, I'd like to take the time to thank both @Veist and @Starfelt for their long term dedication to the Forum Team, both of them have served our community for long careers and deserve to be thanked. While the Forum Team is very low maintenance, Moderators aren't given anything in return for their service to the community; they sacrifice their time and occasionally sanity to make sure that our Forums run well and without incident.

 

Thanks for your time,

dogbew, Forum Team Director.

You can apply whenever, but we won't be accepting them until the future.
