Where do you stand?

Dev AndrewGarrison  2.0 years ago

With regard to some of the drama around here lately, I'd like to take a minute to talk about areas, lines, and the color gray. There will be times where players feel the moderators are not acting consistently. They may even be right. In some cases, the moderators may not be aware of an issue because nobody reported it. Moderation is not an exact science and there are bound to be times when they may not be 100% consistent with players who often find themselves in the gray area. Look at this high-quality diagram.

There are three conceptual places you can be standing in regards to your behavior in the community. The majority of the players are in the green area and never run into issues with the moderators or other players. Then there are the players who have clearly stepped over the red line and are promptly banned. Then there are players that are in the gray area. They often find themselves in drama with other players or arguing with moderators. Some of them might get banned while some of them might not. They always have their hands up in a questioning manner after being banned and say something like "What did I do!?" It might be hard to even pinpoint exactly when they crossed the line, but they just spent too much time in the gray area and the moderators got tired of dealing with the problems they were creating. Instead of arguing with moderators, these players should step out of the gray area and into the green area and stop trying to find out exactly where the line is. Often when they go searching for the red line, they will find it.

Moderation is tough. I did the majority of the moderation back when we first started the website and it drained my soul. I am very thankful for the moderators and what they do for all of us around here. For their sanity and mine, we are updating the rules of the website to include an extra rule that states that if you are harassing a moderator on a 3rd party site because of their actions as a moderator on SimplePlanes.com or SimpleRockets.com, then the moderator can take action against your Jundroo account in the form of a strike or ban. I will also be updating the site soon so that players who have received a strike will be very aware of that fact and will also be able to work towards removing the strike with good behavior over a period of time. Hopefully, we can work towards a community where we have fewer players standing in the red area with their hands up.

    @ZWLenning Sorry I'm late, but basically a few people including myself started to question the moderators, and what we believed were unjust bans. This started up a whole drama and Andrew released an official response, leading here
