Tengaged Moderation

1stFeb 5, 2010 by randomize
I'll close the Tengaged_Moderation, user moderation activities and Court group.
Unfortunately the "Court group" was used for threats and defamatory actions towards some users and specially towards some moderators. From now on the group will be deleted and "mod" accounts for "dispute resolution" or banning will be canceled until we may find a solution.

Tengaged moderators have been of a great help for me. It helped me to focus on developing while letting the Tengaged community and the moderators to deal with the social aspects of the site. I want to thank all moderators and specially Genevere who has been doing a great job, unfortunately she has been one of the targets from those users who think that threatening, and insulting her is just part of the game. It's not fair to let moderators to be the target for all threads and harassment done by all those users who do not agree with their decisions.

If you have any question I will try to answer them in this blog.


And ok :P
I will sure miss the court :(

Randomize, in the case of Emmaleighs banning, she expressed an opinion, she did not threaten genevere or call her names.
Unfortunately the things that are being said about Geneveres actions are true.

Since you are canceling bannings is Emmaleigh going to be unbanned?
Thank you

Youre not very smart if you think, she was a good mod.
Sent by D0ubl31,Feb 5, 2010
The reason why Genevere was not a good mod was because she could not separate "Genevere" from "Tengaged Moderation"
Someone who is not involved needs to take over and help you out.
She is on skype too much and fights too much.
Sent by Alegeeter,Feb 5, 2010
Ok, there's a few things I'd like to ask,

A while back I sent you proof of Genevere showing me the mod panel and conversations with other mods and the password to Tengaged_Moderation was even revealed in one of these logs (although I missed screenshotting it, so I can't prove it). I never got a reply to my mail and I'm wondering if you missed it or you just didn't care?

Also, Genevere has slandered me and told lies about me. I've revealed solid proof she's lied and so many others on this site have been on the receiving end of her compulsive lying, why is it when evidence is shown to back these accusations on her, the people are banned. Yet she's fine to slander other people?

Finally, so much proof has been brought forward about biased bannings. Just one example, it's said that the mods don't deal with Skype issues or issues outside of Tengaged, yet when "surstromming" was in the conversation with Walters when Megan handed over her password, surstromming was banned for it... Even though he hadn't even been ON Tengaged for 17 days. The question is, with all these complaints and proof about biased bannings (and I totally understand some of these complaints are unjustified, yet so many are), why is it you ignore the users cries for help and let the mods alienate so many people from your site?

Also, surstromming asks you read the e-mail as he has appealed his ban.

Sent by hobbitrjw26,Feb 5, 2010
I have more of a statement, rather than a question. I think that genevere has done a amazing job, but I feel as though maybe we should keep moderation PRIVATE and let the moderators have moderating controls on their personnal account. Also, Any "problems" that need to be solved like harassment, should be posted and have the tengaged communtiy and moderaters deciede weather its a punishment worth banning. I have further ideas on the matter, so keep in touch:D
Sent by tennisallstar94,Feb 5, 2010
-10 Randomize, I've lost ALL respect for you.  If you understood even 1% of what has been going on behind closed doors on your site involving Genevere you'd be disgusted.  You have NO idea the illegal things she's been doing, and you take no effort to even look into it.

I know that your really thankful with Genevere, I know she have helped you a lot with the site and all, but why won't you listen to us when we pretty much cry for help? proof was shown, but nothing was done about it, instead you say that we were threatening and insulting her when in reality we were just trying to put everything to light for you to see it and do something about it, at any moment we harassed her or insulted her(at least when I was online I didn't see none of that).

About Emmaleigh, I think is extremely unfair that she was banned, she pretty much got banned for expressing her opinion, she was 100% respectful when stating her opinions. She did NOT insult Genevere at all, this is just getting out of hand the way Genevere is looking like the victim when in reality all the things she have done overall should result in a ban.
Sent by WillyEx,Feb 5, 2010
I even feel like you didn't take no effort to even look into this whole SERIOUS situation, we are talking about something that people have gone to jail for irl, people on Tengaged have been banned for doing the same so why are things going to be different with Genevere? Just because she have helped you with the site doesn't mean shes protected by all the reports against her, Why would so many people report her if she didn't do nothing? Why do you think shes so hated? Exactly there is a reason and I think you've heard it multiple times, but it doesn't look like something will be done. I strongly believe you should take some time and listen to us, and even take a look at the proof we have, is not like we're just making things up without backing it up, this is actually the truth and theres proof too!

this is ridiculous. this site needs to be run as a democracy. maybe we can establish some kind of vote for people's bannings. i definitely see a lot of hypocrisy and abuse of power going on with tengaged (alot like measure for measure which andyandyshields mentioned). if emmaleigh and ginny want to fight on skype, that's their business. skype is a DIFFERENT computer program. yes, many tengaged-ers use it to communicate off of tengaged, but like the old saying goes "what happens on skype, stays on skype".

ps- if you're looking for a new, unbiased mod...i'm older and mature!
Sent by AlanaDee,Feb 6, 2010
1.  I don't envy Randomize for the new workload he will take on in the absence of mods.  However, I tend to hope that as people realize that the mods are busy- they can maybe not be offended by some of the sillier trivial stuff that gets reported and stop clogging up the court system.

2.  There should probably be a limit to the amount of time any new mods stay as mods.  Over time - even the unbiased end up with preferences.  Perhaps the issue here is that we had mods in place for way too long, and that were known too widely by the public.

3.  I am glad to see this group go.  There are people that used the court as a weapon - and the court allowed that.  I also know of a couple occasions where the mods showed distaste for players from other sites - which is not unbiased - it's actually pretty petty.

4.  Not sure that democracy or mob rule is the best way here for bannings - but maybe for high profile appeals?

Looking forward to what comes next.
