HC news central

How do the Admin, the mods and the members feel about having a thread dedicated to short updates in regards to issues that are going around...  

I don't believe that the WHOLE story needs to be public knowledge but it would be nice to have an idea of the action that has been taken by the admin.  It could be just a simple 1 or 2 lines explanning quickly what happened and the action taken to correct or discipline.

This would serve as both a means for other members to learn from others' mistakes and to avoid repeating some of them.  (after understanding why someone got silenced or a thread was moved to modsquad, I may be less inspired to go down that path)

On a positive note, this type of news bulletin would also allow a member who has been absent for a while (i.e. Terje) to skim through a log and get updated withouth needing to scroll through endless pages of arguing to finally understand what happend.

I'd be curious to see what you all think...

You know, it does sound like a good idea to an extent. It would serve to keep us from having to answer the same questions over and over again.

On the other hand though, it sounds to me like work - so the thought scares me. Usually when a moderator has to deal with a sitution, we have to deal with countless Im's, and then writing in modquad, and also talking with other moderators for advice / opinions whatever. So to write up another account would seem really really painful sometimes.

Would it suffice to just be sure to have a good recap at the end of any 'issue ' detailing the action taken?

yes, just a recap is the kind of info Jebus was looking for. (I think?) It would be good for the members to have a clear view of what happened so no backtalking could happen and everyone would be informed coutinuously (sorry for the spelling, I am french you know )

The Terje example is a very good point. tons of pages of rubish to explain one point.

We could also talk about new forums beeing put and others being deleted or whatever... you know, news!

I volunteer for this task if the workload scares you....

thanks guys...  
Pandora,
i think Conan knows we pretty good cuz that's pretty much what I was thinking... keep it simple, and it doesn't have to be long...  just a simple "this is what was done and why",... you'll never avoid all the Im's but maybe we can reduce 'em!  and worse case if there was a mega super long gynormous thread, you always have the option to put a link at the botton of the update to the thread in question (if it's a public thread of course )

As an example (please nobody attack me for bringing it up again..)
but with the Stiven thing, you explain what happen and then link Val's explanation... end of post!)

OK, so I'll start

Alright, perhaps I can start with the new development, and we can delete the other posts in this thread.

May I remind everyone that this is not a thread to complain or even discuss the issues brought up; it is simply a news place. Complaining or discussing issues here will be deleted or moved. Think of it as discussing Iraq with your local newspaper... it just doesn't work that way

Soccerfeva's silencing
The administration has decided to reduce this user's QP count to -10, so he can only post every 24 hours. The user was deemed a detriment to the peacekeeping of the forum and was warned/silenced many times.
Details of the situation can be found here

I know but this isn't a place to comment but I think it I shall add something to it

Appart from the HC internal news service I don't think it would hurt it to post maybee just a few sports or news headlines along with the internal subjects.

uh... I don't follow the idea. What relevance is sports news to HC?

Perhaps it would be a very good idea for you to start that as "Sports central" in the Tavern?

I don't think you are cathing on...the thing with taverns now a day's is that they are ingnored by everyone but spammers...but that's not my point...

Ok maybee not sports, but a little international news Headliness wouldn't damage the idea in any way...

But a thread about anything else than HC matters in the Tribunal does not have it's place.

If you want, the Other Side is very much active at the moment and creating a international News thread there is a very good idea. I actually really like your idea here.

And let's not forget that the news thread will be read alot more than posted on, so the fact that Tavern is dead nowadays just means less people reading it.

I just wish to make clear that this thread is for issued concerning HC only; that's why it is in the Tribunal forum.

Sure...I understand and it porbably right to keep the News only HC style.

But I'll probably start a newspaper(revival?) thread in the Other Side Forum...

And I hope this one cathces on also.

Update

Soccerfeva was penalized again and his flood increased to 7 days.
Reason is because he created a thread in the VW that went against the CoC. I cannot give the link as the thread will eventually be deleted.

Update:

Soccerfeva received a -QP for creating a clone while being silenced.

This puts his floodprotect to 33 years so in essence, this is the last we will see of him. He is to be considered banned.
