It has now been 7 months since Virt and I were first appointed as DART's moderators by Mike. During that time, moderation has handled countless reports, helped numerous users address various problems, and implemented several changes based on usership feedback.
Given that we are now more than halfway through our first year volunteering as moderators for DART, I thought it would be appropriate to pause to allow the community to provide feedback on moderation. Virt and I value the usership's input, which is one reason why we implemented the MEEP process and why we try to engage with individual users who express concerns.
Moderation always tries to achieve the highest standards of integrity, fairness, and consistency possible. While we are not perfect, and while no code of conduct is perfect, we are striving every day towards excellence in our moderation of DART.
Please use this this thread to express any thoughts, concerns, or questions you have with regard to site moderation. Feel free to address queries to any of the moderators. This is not the ideal thread to talk about technical issues, as that is outside of moderation's purview. For the next 3 days or so, we will attempt to answer your questions and will weigh any potential changes to policy implicated by your concerns. Consider this your opportunity to provide us a report card on our first 7 months in office. After three days, the thread will be locked.
Thank you. We look forward to a productive discussion.
