    Default The Chat Thread (Read OP)

    Remember, this is for conversations, not spam. Here are the rules we've agreed on for this thread:

    Rules 1. All ToS rules apply and will be strictly enforced.
    2. No posts consisting solely of images or smileys.
    3. No double posts.
    4. No image macros.
    5. Posts must have a clear point: this is a chat and conversation thread, not a spam thread.
    6. Posts must be pertinent: avoid random interjections that detract from an existing conversation.
    7. No 'King of Thema Devia' roleplay is allowed.
    8. No abuse of the tag system is allowed.


    Failure to follow these rules may result in a Thema Devia forumban, or if en masse, the closure of this thread.
    Påsan's rules: I'm tackling the moderation in the Thema Devia now, and I will shape the threads to my vision to ensure that the flow and stability of any thread herein remains at an acceptable level. this goes for all the threads in this forum, but most explicitly on the stickyed threads. If there is a problem with my moderation policies, the moderation commentary or Curia would be the correct fora to voice your concerns. Not here.

    As long as I am moderator in the Thema Devia, linking to 4chan or any image board with similar lenient attitude to porn or other grotesque content will not be accepted under any circumstances whatsoever.
    Poosan has decided to lay down his bloodied mace, the above rules will however stay in place.



    Pann's Rules
    1. No massive animated gifs. Anything bigger than sig level is definitely out, but I may cut a few that are under 250 KB as well, depending on my mood.
    2. When I start deleting, I may delete liberally. If your post is one of those culled, if you want it back, the onus is on you to convince me that your post is of value, not on me to convince you that your post should be deleted.
    3. Any e-bullying will be cracked down on with great severity. This is the part of the ToS that I feel strongest about, so I'll go by the book, and it's up to the Tribunal to tone it down if they see fit.
    If you want to discuss anything about these, then please address it the moderation commentary thread.



    Additional rules or regulations may be implemented at the discretion of Moderation Staff.

    Ok: Have fun.


    New thread, new me and all that nonsense. As long as that new you stays within the thread rules knock yourselves out.

    If you go beyond the level of "Amethyst" there is already a nice award to be given.
    Novus Awarded for exceptional contributions to the site in the capacity of a staff member.
    Personally, i would consider any member who had multiple staff commendations at a lower level. (Ruby/Emerald).
    Below is the list of non Novus members who have have been commendated. In some caes, I went down to Silver to find enough active members that could potentially be considered.

    Quill
    Amethyst: Lord Rahl, *Hesus de bodemloze* , Daily
    Ruby: Armatus , Banned , Lord William , Maяcel , Ishan , Acco , MasterBigAb , Major Darling , Vaðarholmr
    Emeriald: Tzar , Jom , Giovi , Robin de Bodemloze , Confederate Jeb , SonOfAlexander , Noif de Bodemloze , abbews , 'Gunny , General Brittanicus , The Dutch Devil , SonofPeverel , Lifthrasir , Mhaedros , Merchant of Venice, Settra , pacifism , Hitai de Bodemloze , Alwyn

    Technician Screwdriver
    Amethyst: 3 (already acquired)
    Emeriald: Aikanár
    Gold: Mímirswell , Dragooon
    Silver: SigniferOne , Ybbon , Bolkonsky , Char Aznable , Raritу , Kaiser Leonidas , PikeStance , Akaie

    Moderator's Mace
    Amethyst: God-Emperor of Mankind , imb39 , Trajan , Garbarsardar , irishron , DimeBagHo , Mímirswell , pannonian , *Hesus de bodemloze" , TheFirstONeill , Påsan , Aradan , Tiberios , Ybbon
    Ruby: Noble Savage , Thanatos , YD23 , Jom , Erebus Pasha , lolIsuck
    Enmerald: Seleukos , LoZz , Gertrudius, Ishan , The Holy Pilgrim , IlluminatiRex , Dante Von Hespburg

    Current Novus Members
    My vote/ proposal candidates
    Påsan , Tiberios , Ybbon
    I pretty sure that Hesus is around, just behind the scenes. At least that is what he suggested to me in a brief PM exchange. Good candidate active or not.

    DISCLAIMER: I miss any active members it was purely unintentional.

    If I remember correctly the requirements to access a higher tier changed a couple of years ago becoming much stricter and difficult to achieve. This is an opinion without much ground*, and I do not want to hurt anyone with comparisons, but I think that a quill/mace obtained today has more merit than previous quills.

    *this comes only from my perception seing users working here for years with only a sad green quill / colored mace as a reward.

    mishkin is correct. Quills are no longer awarded for time served and the amethyst is reserved for truly exceptional staffers like Chris or Hader or Legio. Right now there's only 3 people with realistic chances of getting the amethyst some day (personal opinion)

    They did make a change some time ago.
    The Novus is awarded for "exceptional" staff work. The standards are a little high if the Amethyst would carry the same weight. The change, I believe, wasn't to make the standards higher, but allow for more consistent awarding. A person can literally do 6 months of work in 2 while another person may take a year. The change allows for greater flexibility in which time spent, quality and quantity of work can be considered. As I said, if they earn a Amethyst, then a Novus should be around the corner.

    Personally, I would prefer a "rubric," but that is the teacher in me. LOL They could had kept the minimal standard. If I recall. it was described with a time span (e.g. 3 to 6 months or maybe 1 to 3 months). The way I see it, if someone has been "working" for 6 months and they hadn't done enough work by then to warrant a Quill, then you probably should end their "employment." Moreover, if you have been working on staff for 3 years and still don't have a Amethyst, then you are getting the shaft!

    Thanks for repeating things we already said / knew Pike.

    It would be cool if the curia showed some love for these people working really hard for TWC. Thats all.

    This is a lamentably un-chat-like conversation and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. King Meloncat would be rolling in his grave at the sight of this disgraceful behaviour.

    If I recall, when you were a citizen, I do not recall you ever presenting anyone for any award at any time. Perhaps you should spend less time posting obnoxious posts on TWC and do something on TWC.

    You know, posting posts is basically the only thing you can do on an internet forum. If they are obnoxious in addition that makes them all the more entertaining.
