I’m ISD Aquamarine, the latest addition to the ISD CCL team.
I’ve been playing EVE on and off since 2010, but really got into it over the last few years. I’ve bounced around nearly all the major nullsec blocs so I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve already shot at most of you!
I’m very passionate about the game, safety and community standards. I figured I would roll up my sleeves and use some of my experience to help out!
Really looking forward to getting to know you all!
Hi! Welcome to the nuthouse. You have experience in Forum Moderation? You’re about just in time because they need you… badly.
You do know the difference between a rumor and a question, right… ? Just checking.
Hi and welcome. What I’m about to say has nothing to do with you personally.
In general, the implicit bias that comes with 12 years playing the game is a real problem when it comes to unbiased moderation among other things. I have always advocated for a paid moderation team with no history in the game and a resume that shows actual moderation experience.
That said, I look forward to seeing fair and balanced moderation from you in the future.
Welcome. I have a serious question that I hope you’ll answer.
When a thread is locked and/or removed by an ISD, they usually post something like:
1.Specifically restricted conduct.
The purpose of the EVE Online forums is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas, and a venue for the discussion of EVE Online. Occasionally there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Forum users are expected to courteous when disagreeing with others.
In order to maintain an environment where everyone is welcome and discussion flows freely, certain types of conduct are prohibited on the EVE Online forums. These are:
Racism & Discrimination
New Player Bashing
2.Specifically restricted content.
EVE Online holds ESRB Teen and PEGI 12 ratings. All content posted to the EVE Online forums must be teen rated.
In addition to this, the EVE Online forums are not for discussion of real life current affairs, news, politics or religion. Discussion should revolve around EVE Online and its community.
For these reasons, specific content is prohibited on the EVE Online forums. These are:
Real Money Trading (RMT)
Discussion of Warnings & Bans
Discussion of Moderation
Private communications with CCP
In-Game Bugs & Exploits
Real World Religion
Real World Politics
Content that distorts the forum layout
3. Post constructively.
Negative feedback can be very useful to further improve EVE Online if it is presented in a civil and factual manner. All users are encouraged to honestly express their feelings regarding EVE Online and how it can be improved. Posts that are non-constructive, insulting or in breach of the rules will be deleted regardless of how valid the ideas behind them may be. Users are also reminded that posting with a lack of content also constitutes non-constructive posting.
Would it be too much to ask for the ISD team to be more specific? I don’t see how anyone can learn from having the entire EULA listed. I know copy and paste is very efficient, but it’s not very effective as a teaching tool.
Usually they highlight the relevant parts with bold text. When they don’t I assume it is because too many rules are broken or they just forget to do so. Btw discussion of moderation is also against the forum rules.
