A few ideas came out of the council meeting. Your feedback and
are greatly appreciated:
* What if we split moderation and ops duties. Under this model, ops
technical work and enacts moderator decisions that require privileges
as needed. Moderators would be drawn from ambassadors, diversity and
commops. The groups are already charged with helping with friendliness
and accessibility. Those groups would need to decide how to determine who
is a moderator and for how long.
* Assuming a moderator/ops split, ops could serve as an in the moment
check for moderator decisions.
I fear this would be pretty complex and lead to situations where one or
the other group is not around and no action is taken, or the process
* Consider guidelines for how to log problems and Code of Conduct
violations. Consider anonymized external reporting.
Sure, but again, I think this could get too complex... we do have the logs
in the bot currently.
If we made sure annotations are in there would that be enough?
* Hold annual elections (or release cycle elections) for ops.
I don't think thats a good way to go about things. It could lead to people
voting for whoever they think (or know) would let them get away with
things, would cause more voter fatigue, and seems out of place for a
Now, I don't want to be all negative here, and I am personally not adverse
Some more ideas I'll toss out:
* Since the irc sig doesnt have too many active members these days and
currently only meets when we have open tickets, perhaps we could pull them
into the commops meetings/list. Just have a section to discuss issues
there and increase visibility to perhaps bring in more active people.
* If we can get folks from ambassadors, diversity and commops interested
in helping out in channel perhaps come up with some way to promote from
them to ops after they have proven they will be around and are suited
for/interested in doing that.
I really think the best way to improve friendlyness is not by increasing
enforcement or punishment, but by simply having lots more friendly people
around. So, I am personally also very much in favor of trying to increase
the helpfull, friendly people in channel.
