Moderators – responsibilities

Soňa ·
I wondered whether there is somewhere more detailed description of what a moderator should do. I have a general idea that he will approve/dissaprove submitted content and categorize it within a niche. Anything else? Will there be any other responsibilities? I have another related question. What if a content has some misspelling, bad grammar or just a strange wording? I suppose those would reduce the reputation of a writer. But even with the faults, does the content still get published? This...

Use [author responsiveness] and [interactivity generated] in your content promotion algorithms

Hello Team, You may already be doing this, but creating a group of variables that describe Author Responsiveness, and Interactivity Generated, and factoring them in positively when initially ranking and featuring content, would help Narrative. The idea being that if something is posted by a Narrator with a great track record of providing and receiving interactions, the post is more likely to be worthy of attention than a post by someone with a poor track record. Of course these attributes...

Also, I know the Brands will have Editors. I wonder how a position like that could be incorporated in Niches for situations like you are mentioning.

@ClosetCrypto thanks for your reply. Well, I can imagine that there would be a possibility for moderators to comment on the content and request editing if they are unsatisfied with the quality. But then again if the moderators of one niche requested the editing of a content, what about the other niches where the content was presented, would the content remain there in the original form or in the edited one? Anyway if there would be someone responsible for editing, I think he shouldn't be...

There will always only be one version of any piece of content, so in the case where it lives in two Niches, and one of the Niche moderators suggests an edit to the author, that edit will show up for both audiences. Moderators do not have the power to edit content themselves; they can only accept, suggest edits, or reject content from their Niche. That keeps the content creator in full control of their own voice/content.

This is good to know @Rosemary Happy that the content cannot be edited by someone else. The onus should be on the content maker, and therefore they also maintain complete control over its context. Good plan.

So, here's a thought I had for moderators and/or niche owners: Running the content through grammarly by hand as a matter of course. Really speeds things up. Especially for the niches, tools like grammarly provide a boost to that "in-between" level of content niches represent (as between branded and personal).

Thanks a lot, @Rosemary for clarifying the role of a moderator! It seems really reasonable what you wrote - that the content should stay completely in the hands of its narrator, no edition by other parties. So there could be a situation when several moderators suggest some edits to a particular text at the same time, and the narrator receives multiple suggestions from different sources? It seemed to me a little inefficient when I first thought about it (because several moderators would work...

I've been a party to editing (and even writing) by committee before. My head hurts and I can almost feel the blood coming out of my nose and ears just thinking about it. My thought on this is that one or more of the following would work: 1) Writer resubmits incorporating edits as per their own judgment. (Minimizes cycle of infinite edit suggestions). 2) Overlord moderator (or niche owner) has final authority to publish content in whatever its current state is. 3) ANY moderator has final...

I'm not in this. I've no interest in having prioritized posts from active members, but only in having prioritized posts with good quality metrics and mainly from people I follow. Digging in the author's track to prioritize visibility is most welcome, from me, but only for considering quality metrics.

Re: Use [author responsiveness] and [interactivity generated] in your content promotion algorithms

Malkazoid ·
Good point... interactivity isn't always a sign of quality. But is probably should be part of the equation of whether a post is likely to foster an experience that Narrators find satisfying. If we add past quality track record to the equation as a necessary condition, perhaps we would get closer to the right formula.

Vico Biscotti ·
Being part of the equation - for example in the reputation or in the rewards about activity - I can agree. I see authors not much present in the comment section of their own posts, sometimes even with super-high reputation, and this is not a good "activity".

@Malkazoid I think it's too easy to game this - how is automation to differentiate between meaningful discussion in the commenting, and a fight triggered by an inflammatory post? And too, it seems to me that comments are far more ruled by the volition of the commentor, than the post - I'm sure there are already lots of "comment-worthy" posts that few, or no one responded to. Just don't think it's a reliable enough measure to be used if posts are to be buried. I don't understand the trending...

Re: Use [author responsiveness] and [interactivity generated] in your content promotion algorithms

Valid points in terms of a lot of the commenting being initiated by the commenter. But some aspect of it can also come from the poster, and how much they are present in their own comments. Also, if quality in the track record is a prerequisite, this acts as a bit of a fail safe. The rest is all in the balancing of the weighting - whether something is susceptible to gaming or not depends mostly on its weighting within the system of many algorithms at work. I'm not advocating for this to have...

@Malkazoid sure, if authors gained a little by way of rewards for responding to comments, I think would encourage those who don't for what ever reasons to do so to give it some effort. I do think the lack of notification re comments, and people forgeting to tag, as issues that have yet to be "finessesed" I do see the interaction here as a huge bonus to the platform - I just wouldn't want to see posts buried just because there aren't comments. And its possible, once volume increases, readers...

I understand, and neither would I, except in the case of having data for three months or so of a poster generating close to zero interactivity, coupled with a certain low quality profile. Then you can be pretty sure you've got someone who is just spamming and their posts could set out deprioritized to some degree. Authors already receive rewards for responding to comments: activity rewards are paid for commenting. What is being proposed here is that a certain profile of high quality, highly...

I agree it should only be a small bump. Just posting and running as @AussieNinja terms it, can be due to time restrictions, and not just intentional - interacting with comments can be really time consuming and not every member has this available.

That must have been an experience! 1) seems reasonable 2) 3) 4) interesting! 2) I am not sure about this one.

One question I have on Moderators - Are the 6% rewards they receive based on the popularity of the underlying niche(s) they are moderating, or the amount/quality of the tasks they perform?

Thank you @Rosemary . I may have missed this also, but can a niche owner remove a moderator directly, or is it a community/tribunal process?

Good Question @Kyle Kidd !! I think that would be very important part of it. If would be better if a niche owner was observing a moderator that needs to be replaced, before the community needs to step in...Who needs the bad press for your niche...so to speak.

Re: Moderators – responsibilities

@Emily Barnett but it shouldn't be one to the niche owner right? There should be some reasoning behind it and discussed with fellow niche owners or the Tribunal. Probably firing a moderator makes it impossible for the moderator to work for other niches right? So the judgement should be right.

Re: Moderators – responsibilities

Well, not just that but if an inactive one wakes up one day out of the blue and starts moderating again? So, I took the line about niche members being able to complain to a niche owner about a moderator to mean that the owner could remove the moderator from his or her niche. Perhaps that does not remove the moderator from the niche pool, especially in the case that the moderator is moderating more than one niche.

@Jeroenski74 My understanding is that the community of a niche, petition to the Niche owner to have the moderator removed, so my understanding is that, yes the Niche owner has the authority to remove the moderator without a vote. In regards to your concern about the fear of not getting more work as a moderator after being let go, I think in this day and age it goes both ways, and there is a built in accountability structure for the niche owner, as well. For instance, the Niche owner of...

@David Dreezer , Thanks. From reading that it seems the niche owner cannot remove a moderator unless it is first initiated and agreed upon by the community members. It could be the niche owner can do it unilaterally, but it's not entirely clear just from that.

Re: Moderators – responsibilities

Rosemary ·
Right now, the way it's set up is that the Niche owner doesn't have unilateral power to remove the Moderator. It is up to the community to vote to remove a problematic Moderator. As in most cases, we're trying to not concentrate power in the hands of specific individuals, rather in the community itself.

Re: Moderators – responsibilities

Emily Barnett ·
Fair enough. I stand corrected. Thank you @Rosemary and @Kyle Kidd for providing the clarification. I still think there is enough accountability that the niche owner has to the community, built into the system to make a conscious decision as to what is good for the niche is also good for the community. But I respect the platforms voting system.
