It's because there's a major PVE alliance in eve known as TEST Alliance Please Ignore, consisting of around 10,000 characters.

They were supposed to be a Reddit based alliance, but seeing how many of them aren't aware that the alliance was based off of the original TEST post PLEASE ignore, I dare say that doesn't hold as true anymore.

It's fine to remove me from any Reddit I moderate. I trust the admins and mods. Thanks all, and sorry I've not been active.

Edit: I would suggest you keep me if you think it's safe but if everyone, admins inckuded, thinks the best course is to remove me from a particular Reddit that's ok. I would prefer to remain, inactive etc

Edit2: wow gold! Thanks

Edit 3: would be nice of subscribers had a say in how a Reddit is run and could remove mods if absolutely needed? Say if all mods were harming that community? For example a popular Reddit? Though I don't know if that would be practical?

Thanks Q. I appreciate everything you did for the site.

Speaking from a devil's advocate perspective: aren't those the people who most need to be convinced that change needs to happen? Without them, any attempt for change that I try to push through is likely to be ineffective. Convince them that there's a problem, and you'll be a lot farther toward convincing me.

As a thinking person, I can evaluate the danger inherent in a number of situations, regardless of whether they impact my day-to-day life. I suspect the people who don't mod under an inactive top mod are also able to imagine the danger.

I remain only to prevent the possibility of someone under me destroying a Reddit. Other than that I don't interfere. Plus, I created most of the reddits, and think it's reasonably fair I should be allowed to stay.

I would like if Reddit could change the moderator power structure so the highest moderator can't remove the others.

Also would like if Reddit enables moderators to reorder the moderator list and hide inactive ones.

Under your proposed system, would there be any way to remove a bad moderator? If not, wouldn't the creator of a subreddit be taking a huge risk any time they added any more moderators?

Maybe some way for all mods to have an equal say in removing someone?

Yes. You can find happiness again.

Trust me, depressed people are acutely aware of the burden their condition imposes on others.

I would say some are and some aren't. There's a good number of people who are depressed but only think of themselves.

In the future, you would need to describe your posts (without actually sharing them). This way, we will take this sub to the next level, while promoting creativity and the ability to visualize.

So remember, don't post pics, just really good descriptions. Descriptions so good you can almost see them.

Perhaps you could make it so mods are more equal and can vote and remove each other as a group? Or perhaps give the community a chance to vote and remove mods?

This way the top mod can be removed by either the community or other moderators of they are deemed unsatisfactory.

In summary i feel the reddit should "belong" more to the community, not the top mod?

Users: Please fire Ellen

Reddit: Fire Victoria? Sure! On it! Here's a snoo!

Users: No, no, fire El-

Reddit: thank you! Here's a snoo!

So I'm slightly confused. Here's what I understand is going on:

  1. There's this person named Victoria who coordinates and assists with high-profile AMAs.
  2. She seems pretty darn useful to have around.
  3. She worked for reddit? Either as an employee or a contractor of some sort?
  4. In either case, she has been let go.
  5. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

I can't find any information as to why she was terminated. It's confusing. She seems to have been bringing in enormous amounts of benefit to Reddit -- in pageviews, clicks, popular awareness, advertising, logistics -- and I'm sure she was being paid W<MPL. There is no rational business motive for terminating her. I happen to think firms are (roughly) profit maximizers. Hence my confusion! What gives?

12 points · 3 years ago

It's not just her firing.

I think the point is that reddit admins have generally ignored users/mods as a policy. And of these admins /u/chooter did respond a bit / was helpful.

The fact that admins calmly fired her without informing anyone or taking into account pending AMA's etc is also bad.

just saw that /u/qgyh2 might be closing all subs, which would include /r/economics...

Please share your comments and suggestions. We want to hear from as many users as possible.

Context. This account is only a couple of years old but I've been on reddit about 5/6 years. Digg before that. Somethingawful. Kuro5hin. Slashdot. Etc. I'm an old fart.

This subreddit has the worst moderation I've ever seen for an online community this size. Foxes should not be hired as gamekeepers. If you think 'provoking a reaction' (expressing an unpopular opinion) is unacceptable in a political discussion on an internet forum just resign as a moderator. Now. Everyone knows who I'm talking about. Users vote comment up and down, it's not the moderators job to add to that process unless it clearly breaks the explicitly stated rules of the community. One or two mods on here are the equivalent of Bronwyn Bishop - they're in a role that is meant to be non-partisan but they just can't help themselves.

Specific suggestions for moderation on this subreddit.

  1. Stop the automod shadow-bans if they're still around. Getting 60 plus downvotes for expressing an opinion is not unusual on this subreddit. That's fine, that's the community - but it should not trigger a shadowban - which in any case is useless.

  2. Give warnings. If people are close to breaking a rule tell them. Don't let the first mod notification be a ban. People will generally pull their heads in with a warning that a mod is watching. And they'll learn where the limits are for next time.

  3. Transparency and review. If a mod bans someone they should be required to say why even if briefly. There should also be a clear process of review with a second senior mod to confirm if the user wants to appeal. Extra process = extra problems but banning someone should be taken seriously.

I know moderation is a shitty job and you have to deal with timewasters and shitstirrers etc. But that is the task. If you can't do it in a non-partisan manner then resign and let someone else do it.

Why do I come here? It aggregates a lot of Australian related news and I can see what others think and I can contribute my own views. I recently watched CitizenFour and this quote triggered some nostaglia.

I remember what the Internet was like before it was being watched, and there's never been anything in the history of man that's like it. I mean, you could have children from one part of the world having an equal discussion where you know they were sort of granted the same respect for their ideas and conversation, with experts in a field from another part of the world, on any topic, anywhere, anytime, all the time. And it was free and unrestrained.

That's what I'd like /r/australia to be. At its best it can be like that. A forum for really free discussion (or at least as free as we can make it). I remember what the internet was like before shitty moderation.
