Ask a mod

Flag Post

So I was kinda inspired to make this thread and think it could be fun. Hopefully other mods choose to participate as well. :p

To prevent an otherwise inevitable turn of events, I’m setting some grounds rules.

1a. Do not ask for a nomination. Period. You will be ignored and if you continue to ask, all questions you ask will be ignored.

1b. Under no circumstance will current nominees be discussed. Don’t even ask.

2. We try to be pretty transparent in how we conduct ourselves, but if we say we can’t (specifically) answer your question, please respect that.


Ask away! :D

inevidable

inevitable*

Let’s start this off with an easy one.

How does picking the mods work? Who does it?

It’s 6am, mistakes are bound to happen. What mistake? I don’t know what you’re talking about.


We do it, kind of. We nominate someone and say a blurb about why we think they’d be an awesome mod. They go on a list for a while, then the admins do their thing and then the nominee is taken off the list, either way.

What are the minimum and maximum timespans mods can slience/ban? Also, can mods silence/ban someone who’s already silenced/banned, in where the silences/bans would build up?

EDIT: I see. Thanks.

 
Flag Post

Silence: 15 minutes, 1 hour and 1 day.
Ban: 1 week.

We can reverse our own actions any time we want, but not another mod’s.


I think so? I’m not entirely sure how it works, to be honest. But I know for a fact that me and someone else banned someone twice over almost instantly. It happened twice, actually. I’ll go with a “yes but I’m not sure.”

They don’t stack, though, they are replaced.

Nice idea!
We actually have an entire section on Jiggmin.com called “Ask a Mod.”

How many mods can an admin mod if an admin can mod mods? On a more serious note, it seems modding sessions are in bunches. Is it often a group modding, like a monthly assessment?

It used to be that an admin had to actively do the training, set aside time to do it. When it was like that, it was in batches. Now that the training is more automated, it’s more of a steady stream. It’s almost a daily occurance now.

No one besides the admins know the answer to that question and they won’t tell you, either. The fact that you know you were nominated probably doesn’t help, though.

What do you mean? We use the forum, of course.

I like the idea of this thread. It’s a lot better than having a lot of different threads asking all these questions.

It could be useful as a resource so people wouldn’t repeat the same questions as often as they do now (not necessarily the same people every time, obviously).

How much information are mods allowed to tell users? Because there have been multiple instances of certain new mods revealing silences, bans, and the mod who did it. I’m not sure if this is allowed.

T was before my time and I really don’t know what to say about it, anyways.

I know noting about that. :s

I’ve told people how many times they’ve been silenced and/or banned, privately. I don’t think we should tell them anything else.

That’s an in-game issue and not something that a mod or admin can help you with. :(

But, go to the game page, click the “Report bug” link. Fill out the report and it’ll be sent directly to the developer.

Many thanks Flag and have a nice day!
