Created a new thread : Stepping back from moderation
This thread is just a heads up on some changes regarding the administration level in the moderation team. As some of u guys already know...
I and a few other senior staff will be stepping back from our unofficial "senior moderation role" (or "05 council") due to the lack of time and other irl obligation. We have decided to pass on our responsibility and permissions to the following names below:
We feel that the the following people's standing within the community are good fit for these positions. They currently have my permission to settle escalated tickets/appeals, interpret and editing guidelines as they see fit, and handle recommending/demoting other moderators effective immediately.
I will retain my moderator status but I will be basically inactive once the new 05s settle in and completely take over. So if you guys have any issues regarding account access, moderation, etc, I recommend you contact the names above directly instead of me.
This will probably be the last thread ill make here, I honestly don't have much to say as almost all the original people I met when I first just have already left. Most of you guys reading this message only know that I'm ancient and I've been around longer than most people lol. While a lego hacking forums is a strange place on the internet, I do not regret the few, long last friends I've made here.
While I am a bit late to the new "global chat", I am happy to see it back but my time has come.
I wish all of you and the 05 council the best, my dms are always open if you need any advice.
And yes I agree with what moderation did to sirweeb was incorrect, already talked to the moderators regarding that
Created a new thread : How should rep be moderated
Just making another thead from this to see if anyone has any new ideas noe:
Feel free to throw suggestions here or private message me and I'll be more than happy to discuss them with you.
TLDR currently non moderation neg reps are only deleted if:
- The reason for the neg rep is cearly dumb/Low effort (ie -1 with the reasoning being "peepeepoopoo")
- The thread/image used has been deleted
- The information has been independently verfied by mods to be false (extremely rare)
Again point 3 is rarely ever done because we do not have the time to play ping pong with both sides xd
i mean other than replacing the battery and get an ssd, there's not much else you can do
u can throw more ram at it but that's kinda waste when the CPU is that slow (u series is power efficient not fast)
second nuking windows and fresh install
@59576 Here was my take on your rep appeal which determined that the appeal should stay. Some context is that one of the mods was actually defending you and wanted the rep to be removed, but after reading what I said below they swapped sides.
Again "I am open to suggestions on how to handle neg rep appeals better but rn all i see is mostly hands off is best as it is the most consistent"
Copy pasted from staff chat:
one could make the argument the way rexi replied is toxic
while yea personally thats very mild but still
the user determined that his reply was toxic enough in his eyes and used it as a soruce
generally the definition of toxic will vary from person to person
which is why I usually dont side one what is toxic and what isnt
I made a post a while back asking how rep should be moderated, didnt get much reply but the ones I got reinforce my point
I am open to suggestions on how to handle neg rep appeals better but rn all i see is mostly hands off is best as it is the most consistent
has a reason and source (that is not clearly fake or bs) then it is valid
and the idea of what is a fact or opnion is completely different argument, but if I was the person neg repping. One of my arguments for saying that is a valid rep is how rexi replied with words such as brat
I generally try to get into the shoes of the other person and try to make an argument for them
Did that enough times and realized, best course of action is nothing cuz I use to go to the other person and ask them to defend their rep themselves, then realized its a waste of my time and I got better things to do
cuz both sides eventually have valid arugments
I rlly dont think mods should be the deciding factor just cuz we have the ability to delete rep
again we aren't a justice system and I dont expect (and dont want) you guys to spend hours hearing arguments and getting both sides, then deciding which side is better

"and I wont even talk about how the moderation here is more corrupt than v3rm moderation."

If you are referring to the laptop side then most likely the hdmi port on the laptop is bad
But if you want to be 100% sure test with another monitor
@67078bruh rlly recommending a slower 1050 over a 970 skull
@67078how did you check the cables then
Also hdmi has a tendency to be a bit loose since it doesn't have locking tabs compared to display port
