The New Whale Order

I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you all to the newest member of the Content Team, Cetasaurus! His temperance, long experience with the community and talent for deft composition mean that he can help the site profoundly in his new position.

He has already helped us tremendously in our revision of the [Global Rules], which should be reviewed by all users. Besides a different grouping of the old rules, we have also implemented a "peace-keeping" sub-rule (3.b) in order to cover behavior such as obvious trolling that doesn't explicitly break other rules.

No infractions of the new rules committed previous to the posting of this announcement will be punished.

Thank you and have a nice day.

I find that none of the links below "Get Satisfaction" seem to work. Not sure if it's just not ready or what.

There is no satisfaction to be had.

Up until now I thought the "whale" thing was just a play on words with "world" but

Did you.. just make a cetacean pun

Cet on the team is probably good, but there are all kinds of ways these new rules can and probably will be abused by people like Null who do seem to have mod tools and the ability to ban on their own. And if he doesn't, he should be reprimanded for that time he did ban me anyway.

we have also implemented a "peace-keeping" sub-rule (3.b) in order to cover behavior such as obvious trolling that doesn't explicitly break other rules.


Oh so basically you will be able to ban me simply because you "assumed" that's what I'm doing. You "assumed" that before all of the fighting between us broke out. Meanwhile you can continue your own very subtle way of trolling people like Leaf, Mariomguy and others. You also used to do it to me till apparently you decided you couldn't take anymore of my fighting back.

At any rate, this must be utilized with a lot of caution or else things will very likely go wrong.

Yes.

Any ban can be contested and would be reviewed by the whole team so you can't simply be banned by Null because he feels like it. If that were the case we would overturn it.

@Knokkel: Although I had a critical role in the re-writing of the site rules, I share your concerns. After I get a few things IRL sorted out, I would like for the Content Team to discuss official moderator policy with the aims of reducing moderator bias, defining the goals of moderating actions, establishing strict rules of moderation, and generally ensuring the mod team is as minimally invasive as possible while still enforcing a healthy site community. This discussion will include the dissection of what moderators (re: null) have done wrong in the past, as well as what will be expected of them in the future and what consequences they may face. No mod will be left unchecked, and, as Vandy pointed out, the entire team is still going to be attentive to complaints, hopefully minimizing any abuse by a single person. I am sincerely sorry that you have felt targeted by any of us before. We should exist to serve, not to rule. I do hope that we can earn back your trust.
