Can YWN post official coffee room hours?So if I ask someone how they are on Sunday at 5 p.m.I don’t have to keep checking that thread ’til Wed.morning to find out if he’s fine?
CR is open 24/6. Updates are another thing, but its always a good time to check in!
THere must be some pattern…
Yes, they are consistently inconsistent.
I’d rather they post moderators’ hours but as I’ve gleaned from the “Moderators’ Hours” thread, it’s classified info!
If they can’t be consistent then there another (complicated) method. The comments should go up right away, at least when all moderators are signed off. Every logged in user will find a button near each comment that they can click on to consider it inappropriate. If it gets three hits then it will have to wait for the mods. Additionally, for more realistic purposes, every user will be secretly saved by the mods or whoever how trustworthy they are, in their eyes. When a comment gets ten points off it goes. Trust points can be based on how often this user had to be edited and how angry he/she gets at other commenters, and how many times the user clicked wrongly on a comment and so on.
Do you volunteer to program all that functionality into the forum software? It will be quite a feat to complete.
Also, it is easily abusable, as anyone can create a 2nd and 3rd username and knock off comments that way.
HaLeiVi, that strikes at the root of the whole Moderator system!
myfriend, it’s not really that much. In the database there will be one more field by each name showing how much his hits are worth, and another field in the comments table recording how many hits were recieved.
As far as being abused, perhaps. However they can always give it a try, or you can make a newcomer have a very low rating.
seems like your suggestion got you in trouble!
