    There are some concerns about what mods are doing and where and why and the grounds on which things are moved. I am for transparency! So I'll be making notes here. Private information will be omitted.

    This will be a record of what I'm doing with my shiny shiny mod powers and why. I am the only moderator committing to doing this. I do not guarantee that I will respond to all comments, but I will try to answer questions.

    • updated first post in FAQ on advice from IvyLB because it was a good suggestion, including communication preferences Beldaran communicated in the moderator discord chat

    hmm. i have a slight concern about the potential spamminess of the per-post-or-two updates on "approved user post(s)", since there's gonna be a fair number of those whenever you're active and there's people on post mod also active. like, at that point i think it could make it harder to see what's happening.

    Legit! But on the other hand, I have kind of a shitty memory and recording stuff I'm doing as I'm doing it helps. I also kind of want to be clear on, like, the volume of certain kinds of actions versus anything else I end up doing. But idk. I also need to actually go do work at this point. I'm just going to see how it goes.

    You should probably only mention user posts when not approving them, IMO.

    That would definitely be less crowded. But, again, memory. Also radical transparency means excruciatingly boring levels of detail! While at the same time trying to balance stuff so that the only person completely transparent is me, and other people get to keep their privacy.

    Maybe have this thread open in another tab with "approved x number of posts" and update it whenever you approve a post or do something else. When you're getting off Kintsugi, hit post

    • had four different conversations about privacy and the handling thereof - two of them other mods directly calling me on a thing because trying to keep each other in check is Real

    huh. should we be stealing chiomi's thread for this, or making individual threads? i sorta think it makes sense to have a big visible "mod activities" thread but also STEALING.

    He said no action taken so he must not have hit the toast button only mods can access.
