Blog posts made in the course of my moderation duties. Includes Q&A, explanations and whatever else happened to need blogging.

  1. What are the colours for?

    by , June 2nd, 2015 at 12:10 AM (On the overuse of brackets)
    I got asked this privately and thought it was worth posting publicly too, since there isn't an actual official explanation as yet, and everyone has to work it out from experience or from having been around for all the changes. (An official sticky in Announcements may be forthcoming).


    Blue usernames are for regular users. This is probably you.

    Orange usernames are for tempbanned users. They'll be back, but they've accumulated enough black marks on their record to ...

    It mostly depends on which of the mods are on and have most recently looked at their e-mail (since it gets sent there and not anywhere on site - this is something I'd like to have changed, because I want to be able to work with reports while I'm browsing BL, not have to keep going

    Not even shitposting (though that's rubbish and likely comes under the same penalties I'll be discussing too). Outright "I can't make a good post to save my life." A lot of people's ability to post seems to have drastically deteriorated in the past week. Undeteriorate it.

    At any rate, a very minor aspect of modding is policing signatures. We tell people off if they're disruptive, if they're part of the surprisingly large group who seem to think they're ...
