Maybe I'm just a black sheep and everyone else is indeed in both the Discord server and here in the forums, but since I'm only here I'm not entirely in favor of having staff that only (or mostly) is active on Discord. We've gotta keep in mind that each situation that appears and requires a disciplinary action needs to be considered on a case-by-case basis. If someone with power who isn't a regular here comes and see X's post and interprets it the worst way possible, it may lead to an action beyond of what is really deserving, ultimately hindering the situation even more. My perspective may sound overly-dramatic and oddly-specific, but I just don't wanna see another "Please have a good life. No hard feelings"-like almost irrepairable situation again because of that.Caligari87 wrote: ↑Mon May 01, 2023 8:03 am (...) the ones that haven't been as active here, have been active on our Discord within that time.
Granted (and I may not be saying anything new), this could easily be solved by just having a team that knows moderation in their own actions. If someone in the staff reads a post or a comment and feels the urge to go the hammer route, the recommended approach should be to go to the rest of the team and say "Hey, I interpreted this in this way. What about you guys?" and come to a conclusion then. Basically, to moderate their moderation, if that makes sense. Of course, I'm leaving aside clear cases like purposely trolling. I'm refering more to whenever a delicate matter arises.
Overall, I trust the current staff will judge better each situation from now on, but I just wanted to put into words this worry of mine anyways.
