I had to be awake to take my roommates to work, and I'm going back to sleep after this post so I'll make it now.
I'm gonna be doing some updates to staff standards, and a larger post later today or tomorrow addressing some concerns and issues from the past few weeks, just asking you guys to have a little bit of patience with that coming up soon while things are in flux and me and Macil get the server ownership transferred over to me.>>11015
I'll answer this while I'm here and make the announcement to, I'm going to include this in my later post as well.
A while back I promised some changes to the appeal system to hopefully solve some of the problems we've been having with inconsistent moderation. Here is what !!Shining Armor, !!Fluttershy and I have hashed out. Which the rest of the staff agreed on upon review of it.
User appeals for bans exceeding 24 hours will now be handled by committee of two moderators chosen by first availability, with the admin acting as tiebreaker.
Any moderator may also call for a sua sponte review of any moderator action, again handled by two moderators and an admin.
In both appeals and reviews the moderator who took the action will be consulted but not be placed on the committee.
