General Leadership Questions, Concerns and Compliments topic

I hear you, and I will think about it more.

However, right now, when users start to discuss such events, it comes across as a very idle conversation, almost gossiping. And we don’t want that on our forum.

If you ever have any questions, please write to me at ana@gethopscotch.com. I’ll be happy to clarify things.

i know y’all work very hard to keep everything well around here, and that it’s hard to moderate and all of that.

and yes, i get how it can come across as gossip, which i guarantee isn’t what we’re trying to do (most of the time, or so i would hope) haha, but sometimes the conversation just slips out

Ah, that clears things up—I completely get why you don’t have to report such things.

Ok

That is true that they are leaving. I am iffy about the idea of the topic though I don’t know why.

I haven’t seen this specifically but I do agree that focus here is not good.

But, this does seem to happen every so often, and I will direct users to my Q and A answer to this, because it does seem like the leads try to avoid mentioning anything about it. (Note: please feel free to edit anything there if it is not accurate)


I do see this point clearly. I wouldn’t say attention-driven, but more so just breaking a habit. Closing accounts upon request for a couple months would be a good solution.

Is the “omtl” tag still in use? I saw a post about using a long list of people who want to be tagged and that they can add and remove themselves.

Okay I’m really sorry it took me so long to respond.

So first off, trust level criteria. This part I don’t actually have a problem with. I think the system makes sense, and it should stay the way it is.

It’s the actual levels that I have a problem with. I think that regulars and members currently are quite similar. And I don’t believe this is how it was initially intended, but feel free to correct me if I’m wrong about that. Think there should definitely be more involvement with regulars in things happening on the forum. And of course, not all things should involve the regulars — there’s leaders for a reason. But as of right now it feels pretty much the same to be a member or a regular, except for maybe one topic and a few responsibilities.

And maybe it’s just from my perspective, I could be wrong, but it feels like regulars are trusted just as much as members. And for both trust levels, it almost feels like we’re looked down upon in some ways. Everything is “behind the scenes” and something we can’t know. I do understand this to a certain point — leaders are chosen becuase they’re good for it, and the right people. And that is how it should be. I just think some more transparency could be nice. I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense, I’m just trying to get out all my points.

As for what I personally have done, honestly, it’s not that much, which is something I truly would like to change. But I know a lot of other people have helped out it bad situations, kept people calm, and been great explaining things to new users. All in all many of the regulars on this forum do a lot setting a good example for other users, and helping out around with some smaller things.

Why do so many more people want to judge [community] competitions rather than actually code for them? That kinda upsets me a little bit.
