Moderators Wanted (lemmy.world)
submitted 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago) by Hurts@lemmy.world to c/nba@lemmy.world

I've removed pretty much every moderator besides the one who replied to my post the other day and the new one I've added this week.

  • If you're one of the former moderators that was removed and want to be added back, again, reply here. I tagged you all 4-5 days ago and received no replies so I've assumed you have all either moved on from LW or do not want to moderate here any longer.

  • If you're a user here that has time to clean up shitposts, off-topic nonsense, and keep threads clean(ish) feel free to reply.

For the time being stream links are still allowed to be posted until I get cracked down on by someone else for it, so whoever is added you are not required to delete these at this time.

Over the past week or two, I've been discussing merging this community with c/world. The intents and purposes of both of these communities are essentially the same, and we don't really see a reason to divide that community rather than just put it all under one roof.

We're open to any and all opinions on this, and nothing is set in stone so please feel free to reply candidly.

Please speak up especially if you feel like:

  1. You wouldn't like this for really any reason

  2. You feel this community already serves a different purpose

  3. You feel this community could serve a different purpose, and include what changes you'd like to see to meet that goal.

I work with the head mod of c/world, @YoBuckStopsHere@lemmy.world, on c/NFL and talk to him regularly, we're both pretty much on the same page about everything and moderate communities in a similar manner, so if your only reservation would be possible stricter or different moderation, I hope that alleviates some of the concern. All of the mods from here would also be welcome to join over there if we do merge.

Game Threads (lemmy.world)
submitted 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago) by Hurts@lemmy.world to c/nba@lemmy.world

Hey everyone, welcome back.

Between the end of last season and now we had a bot that was working for gamethreads, but it's since stopped working and the owner is not really interested in getting it working again.

If anyone is capable of setting up another bot or has a working bot for game threads please contact me.

If not, I am looking to add moderators that are willing and able to get up game threads (and moderate them if needed).

On c/nfl we tried threads for every game and it simply isn't populated enough to have that many threads and everyone decided to just do a Thursday/Sunday/Monday thread. What does everyone think about maybe a weekly thread for all of the games or would you prefer game threads for each individual game? (if you check NFL and see an "NFL bot" account posting the game threads, it was supposed to be a bot, but we couldn't get it going and log in and post them manually from it).

Edit - And lastly, obviously, part of the point in modding whoever posts these is so that they can be pinned by the poster.

Antik is one of the admins of lemmy.world. He holds administrative authority over the entire forum rather than being specifically involved as a moderator here. He could have removed the comment himself, but he chose to request you change it instead (which I would have also done, had he not already handled it).

As a moderator of this community, I'd like to express our shared sentiment. The use of the term "retard" as an insult is something we discourage. Its appropriateness in language has evolved over time, and it's increasingly considered inappropriate due to its derogatory associations, regardless of its original meaning. Language is subject to change, and words that were once commonplace are regularly perceived as offensive now. Regardless of personal views on the word, if the admins have deemed it unsuitable for use on this platform, it's something that we will also enforce.

There is an abundance of other words that effectively convey your message.

I don't know where he would get a ring.

He clearly still wants a pretty big role in the offense wherever he is, and has now quit on 3 teams in a row. I'm not sure why any contender with a good culture would want to add that. It's not like he's some incredible spot-up shooter that could fall back into a primarily 3-point guy, his career percentages are drastically better off the dribble. It's not like you're adding the corpse of Steph Curry here, who would presumably still be able to launch 3s at a high % clip.

I am dead inside. Thank goodness baseball and football can hold my attention through February without worrying about the dumpster fire Sixers

We encourage people to do this for Fox News links.

While Fox News isn't actively blacklisted at this time, our stance is that we do prefer other sources/outlets if the same story is available. As I mentioned in another comment, we read both of these articles and they contain basically the same content, so we left this post up, and that is basically how these posts are being evaluated at this time (checking to make sure they aren't misleading/reporting incorrect information).

Also as mentioned in my other comment, we do also understand that a lot of users do not want to click Fox News links and support them, so I do also encourage people to post links to other outlets in the comments so users can still read the article if they choose to do so.

Any recommendations will be taken into consideration, weekly threads, daily threads, etc.

Free talk thread to discuss what you’ve been watching and ask for recommendations. Be sure to tag spoilers.

This is the chart I sent to the mods over a discord message.

Basically, anything in the middle three columns would be "preferred" and the furthest left and right columns would be "not-preferred". Again, stuff from the furthest left and right columns are not subject to instant removal and some could still fly if you can't find another site posting the content, but generally, it isn't that difficult to find another source that wrote an article about the same topic.

It would be ridiculous to think there are totally "non-biased" sites, the goal here is really just to not have constant posts from Fox News or the Huffington Post, let alone sites that veer even further in either direction, with the endgame being that this doesn't wind up being a massive echo chamber of a community for any particular political leaning.

Edit - Open to suggestions about said chart, and other sites users think fall into any of the categories

This comment has been up for two minutes and has been reported twice. I'm leaving it up as to give you the same leeway as OP using the insult "tool" and removing your comment would basically result in me removing the post as a whole, however, you've directed it at him, whereas OP was a broad statement, and everyone just calm down please

Edit - If you're wondering why these comments are now removed, it's because the user edited both of them to add further insults after the warning

[-] Hurts@lemmy.world 18 points 1 year ago

I've received numerous reports on this post now, and I'm doing my best to leave it up. Please refrain from personally insulting people here (i.e. the post title and update). Still leaving it up for now.

[-] Hurts@lemmy.world 13 points 1 year ago

It has nothing to do with "wrongthink" and everything to do with very blatant transphobia, which is not welcome in this community nor is it welcome on the lemmy.world instance as a whole if you checkout the instance wide rules.

[-] Hurts@lemmy.world 19 points 1 year ago* (last edited 1 year ago)

Locking this, getting reports on about 95% of the comments that come in for transphobia.

Please remember the rules about bigotry when commenting.
