    Did this ever happen? I was assuming there would be some kind of notification via inbox. is there anyway to confirm that this did in fact take place? Was the new moderation system posted somewhere or is that information not available for the public?

    thankyou in advance for the clarification

    (this is not meant for general discussion, board members only need reply)



    Now that everyone has had a few days to express their thoughts and opinions, along with a few constructive ideas on where to go from here, we feel it's time to lay this topic to rest and move along.

    On our part, we have made our apologies and laid out the events as they actually happened. We understand that some of you have your own perceptions which may differ from those events. As @Kayhynn has noted, repeating and responding to them over and over simply isn't going to get us any further traction. In the end you will have to make your own judgement and determine whether you wish to continue to be a part of Stratics or not. We hope it's the former, but if not, we wish you well in your future journeys.

    One of the takeaways of this situation for us: as of Tuesday next week, we will be implementing a new, simplified moderation and warning system for these boards, with a strict process for applying it more consistently in future. Because the points system will be more streamlined and less open to interpretation, we feel this will result in a process which will be both less discretionary as well as easier for moderators and users to understand. Expect to see some documentation posted on this system before it goes into effect. As part of that change, we will be wiping all existing points from the previous system. Bans and suspensions that are in effect during the changeover will remain in place.

    We hope this opportunity to let you discuss this at length has helped, at least a little. On our part, we will continue to strive for a better sense of community and understanding, which we hope over time will help heal any remaining wounds that resulted from this unfortunate series of events.

    Not yet, we got some feedback from the rest of the staff and we're making some adjustments based on portions of it. Another part of why it hasn't happened yet, is it's implementation will be paired with a maintenance down time in order to make the adjustments without a risk of people being hit with things half way through the adjustments.

    We'll make sure you know when something important comes out, one of us will slap one of those annoying "Notice" boxes on the screen for everyone to see. I think the post you're quoting jumped the gun a little bit, but yes an overhaul of the moderation system is coming, and we will be making the details of it public.

    thanks for the reply. yes since originally it was said to be released April 26th, and its now over a week later, May 5th, we thought things just went dark or the board just broke up and left or something.

    a simple announcement of the delay would have cleared alot of things up and not left people assuming things for themselves.
