I just noticed that grue and saltyspitoon are no longer Global Mods. Why? I see both of them have been offline for around a month, but at times when there is more need for mods, why remove them?

Are there gonna be new global mods? If so, I have my alts(Welsh and LoyceV) up for that. Grin

I was planning for a infinity war parody dude, and I can't fill the 6 infinity stones(because 2 mods got removed) Angry.

If there are only 3 global moderators left that would explain why the spam problem has got so much worse recently. I've noticed reports staying unhandled a lot longer or indefinitely the last few weeks. The other staff can only moderate the boards they are assigned to and nuke Newbies. The legions of Jr. Member spammers seem to be left to their own devices at the moment.

They're not 'fired' per se, but as with most staff if you become inactive after x amount of time you usually have your mod status removed. Grue and Salty haven't really been active moderating for quite some time and both their mod payments have been zero for the past two months and grue's even longer than that, so that means they handled zero reports and probably why they were de-modded.

They were pretty inactive from what I can tell. I'm sure theymos would have them back in an instant if they could dedicate their time again. Both were top notch in my opinion. Probably better to promote existing staff than hire new ones to fill in the slot. Thanks for the endorsement though Tongue

It would be better if we could have the same system with default trust members, many of them are inactive, IMO they should be excluded from DT system after being inactive for some time. speaking of trusting people to moderate, we could really use some help regarding a few rogue DT1 members. because IMO trust system is more important than moderators, if mods do something wrong people could spot them very quickly but we don't know what is going on with some DT members and their inside deals.

That would significantly decrease the weight they've given in their feedback, which is not necessary even if those members are inactive.  I would say that as long as it's not suspected that the account has changed hands, no action is necessary.  In other words, just because someone hasn't posted here in a while doesn't mean they're not trusted anymore.  On the other hand, if an employee fails to do work for X amount of time, it's only logical that they should be let go.

I don't think so.

Shush. He is hiding behind a bush in fortnite, desperately waiting for season 5.   Tongue Don't reveal his spot.

I've noticed reports staying unhandled a lot longer or indefinitely the last few weeks. The other staff can only moderate the boards they are assigned to and nuke Newbies. The legions of Jr. Member spammers seem to be left to their own devices at the moment.
I have seen grue and SaltySpitoon to be inactive for more than a while now(inactive as in spending less time on the forum, moderating). So the absence hasn't affected the spam to increase. Although, I could argue that with the launch of the new autoreply bot,which might have made the spam problem much worse than it already is.

They're not 'fired' per se, but as with most staff if you become inactive after x amount of time you usually have your mod status removed. Grue and Salty haven't really been active moderating for quite some time and both their mod payments have been zero for the past two months and grue's even longer than that, so that means they handled zero reports and probably why they were de-modded.
Please tell me, if I put a local rule on not allowing digaran to say anything in particular threads of mine and if he does, will he be banned?

Its sad that grue and Salty have been de-modded, hope they are alright IRL, and just not leave bitcointalk forever.

I haven't seen much of grue, but I can say Salty was a great mod. Most of the staff(non global mods) are either inactive themselves or are busy managing their own boards. A few boards need moderators, but that's not gonna happen. But hey there is no harm in self promoting my alts.  Roll Eyes

True story.

It would be better if we could have the same system with default trust members, many of them are inactive, IMO they should be excluded from DT system after being inactive for some time. speaking of trusting people to moderate, we could really use some help regarding a few rogue DT1 members. because IMO trust system is more important than moderators, if mods do something wrong people could spot them very quickly but we don't know what is going on with some DT members and their inside deals.
Not true. xetsr was a great DT member, he has hundreds of legit tags, if he is removed, scammers would be free to scam again(not everyone reads untrusted feedback). If you have a problem with DT1 members, make another thread about it, tell your bullshit insights to theymos. I am sure, he will reply to you the first thing he sees such a thread.  Grin

And trust system is not important than moderators, and if you don't know why, you should leave

That would significantly decrease the weight they've given in their feedback, which is not necessary even if those members are inactive.  I would say that as long as it's not suspected that the account has changed hands, no action is necessary.  In other words, just because someone hasn't posted here in a while doesn't mean they're not trusted anymore.  On the other hand, if an employee fails to do work for X amount of time, it's only logical that they should be let go.
I remember, when Zepher was removed from DT, all his tags became untrusted and I believe Ecuamobi/Lauda/some other DT member had to spend their time re-tagging all those who Z had tagged.

Why do you try and derail every thread into an off-topic discussion about DT?
Why else? He is a DT investigator. His bullshit opinions are right on spot and always right.

Why do you let him derail the thread?   Wink
Its my mistake, didn't put a localrule for not letting digaran reply. I apologize for that.  Embarrassed

As long as Mitchell is still active - the Project Development section is turning into a spam board for ICO scams... I report 5-10 threads a day.

Fair point. Normally I just hit the report to moderator link and write 'off-topic'.



I have seen grue and SaltySpitoon to be inactive for more than a while now(inactive as in spending less time on the forum, moderating). So the absence hasn't affected the spam to increase. Although, I could argue that with the launch of the new autoreply bot,which might have made the spam problem much worse than it already is.

Yeah, it could be something else like that. I do get feeling that 3 global moderators aren't enough given the level of spam this forum is subjected to.

In the Portuguese section, one of the moderators has not been online since March. It's been over 14 months since he last wrote something on the forum. I do not believe we need another moderator since the other one is managing to keep the section spam-free. But when he is unable to access, we have a spam flood.

We've been chugging along a few weeks with only 3 Global Moderators, and I don't think too many people noticed that Salty, and grue were inactive. Salty as been logging in, but hasn't done too much moderation work based on Hilariousnadco's comment. theymos recently made a comment that its not about the budget of the forum, but the lack of trust in delegating roles to users. So, I don't expect us to see new moderators/global moderators, and would assume that existing staff members will be promoted if there is a need.

@Welsh, are you interested in becoming a moderator? you seem to be trustworthy enough, if you show interest I'm sure theymos will hire you or are you a fan of making the current mods as global mods?
Another candidate I could think of would be Lutpin sorry LoyceV, they seem to be extremely interested in forum moderation stuff, take a look at their threads trying to moderate on behalf of inactive or lazy mods. Wink we need more moderators whether you like it or not.

Should we not find a new mods first before removing inactive mods? Any update of to whom the spots were moved? I expect that there is already one who filled the position I am just not sure tho if that mod was newly appointed
