Moving on, lets discuss the new moderation system.

In it's current form the moderation system is extremely primitive, yet another piece of YTMND left over from back in the day when 100,000 sites seemed like a lot.

Read more for the whole plan.


The moderation system as it is currently is just not adequate. It currently consists of roughly 40 moderators who have the ability to NSFW/SFW a site, flag it for me to look at or mark it for deletion (which currently never happens). This is a less than ideal setup as it means I have to deal with a lot of moderation when I could be doing something a lot more useful like coding.

Punishments

An all new punishments system will allow us to deal with problems in a much simpler way. Currently when a user is acting up we can either ignore them or delete them completely. Usually they are just ignored, and deleted when they become a real problem. With the new system super moderators will be able to dole out punishments on problematic users such as taking away the ability to vote, make sites, make comments or even turn commenting off on a specific site. These punishments will have an expiration and will be logged for referencing in the future if the user continues to be problematic.


Deletion System


A new system for deleting users and sites will be put in place. It will be a queued system, which will clear roughly every five days. This has already been implemented for users who have chosen to delete their own accounts. Previously when a user deleted their account they could no longer log in and the system never actually deleted their account. Currently, once a user deletes themselves, they get added to the deletion queue and then will automatically be deleted five days later, the user can log in and undelete themselves at any time before the five days are up.


This is similar to how the new site deletion system will work as well. I'm still hashing out the details to avoid removing any of the current functionality, but the way I'm assuming it will work is that you can delete two sites per day instantly, otherwise you will have to queue them for deletion, which will take either three or five days for full deletion. The system will be designed like this for a few reasons: 1) a malicious user can not go into another user's account and delete all of their sites. 2) a user can delete a site instantly in order to replace the old site with something new . 3) it allows users to undelete a site if they change their mind before the deadline.

Tiered moderation system


Moderators

These will replace the current moderators as "worker bees". My aspiration is to have roughly 250 currently active users become moderators. Their abilities will be fairly limited, as we don't want to give user information out to just anyone. Their abilities will be: decide if a site is marked incorrectly (work safe or not work safe) and report problematic users or sites to super-moderators.

Basically when a moderator logs in to the control panel they will be given a queue of sites that haven't been checked for innappropriate content and their main job is really just to look at YTMNDs. It's a pretty simple setup, but there is power in numbers. Moderators will be watched fairly closely by super-moderators and myself, and I can only assume there will be a lot of promotion (and possibly demotion) as certain people shine through as being exceptionally helpful (or unhelpful).


Super Moderators


Super moderators will have a new level of access which will enable the majority of the day to day moderation which I do (or more importantly don't do) to be done by YTMND users.

Super-mods will have access to access logs and some sensitive user information, and such will be required to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement to give YTMND the something to stand on in the case that a super mod decides to go AWOL.


Super moderators have the same abilities as regular moderators but their main responsibility is overseeing the moderators and making sure they are doing their jobs properly. Super moderators will have access to full moderation logs, meaning they can see the action of any other moderator or super mod. They will also be able to go through the dupe account list and the automagic "gimmick account finder" list.


They will be able to view the full login log of any user if needed to solve many of the problems that arise. An integral part of the new system is the deletion system. Allowing moderators to delete sites at their discretion is extremely problematic and causes a lot of push-back from the users. The deleting of sites and users requires a more attentive stance. It is because of this that the deletion of any site or user requires an administrators direct approval. I will explain more on the deletion system later in this post.



Administrators

Currently this group will only consist of me. Until I let go a little and learn to trust some of the super moderators with the administration of the site, I will be maintaining my current level of moderation. My responsibilities will include: approving deletion requests of users and sites, watching over super-moderators, working with the entire moderation team to improve the system and streamline the process.


----------------



At this point there is still a good amount of work to be done. Mainly I need to integrate all the tools I've written and been using via the command line or just straight in SQL and put them into an easy to use interface. I've finished most of the design and back end setup so it's really just a matter of me sitting down and hammering out some grunt work.


I've also been working on some nifty stuff for a new “developer interface” which will allow users who are fluent in programming to hit up the YTMND system and mine some useful data. I'm hoping this could spawn some new and creative apps or possibly even some new features. If you are a developer and have an idea for a feature or application that could make use of the data we collect here on YTMND and want to beta test the interface, drop me some mail at max@ytmnd.com. I would like to bring some more developers on as the TODO list grows a lot faster than I can hammer it out and the more people I have to discuss new features with, the better.

i would also like to nominate myself as a God. i work the no shift at nowhere, so when i come home everyday, i spend around 3 hrs on the toilet. also, i have made 3+ sites. All of which are a 1.0 or higher. i juist view up and coming sites rather than push sites to up and coming by viewing the recently created. my votes are unfair, biased, regardless of taste, relevence, effort, and of course humor. but, my main argument is that i'm OVERENTHUSIASTIC! i call in sick, a less than perfect parody!

Why are we lettin people with over 10k 1 star votes get away with that? Is it just because they've been around for a while and still have some 5 star votes (albeit only around 500 or so)

Sitsu I'm certainly not interested in the job but liek I said BTape is a really fair dude and would make a sweet mod, the FPA is not the Army of Darkness we are just like badass older siblings. And the last news thread was full of us all "FINALLY WAY TO STOP SUCKING MAKCS" lol. The Kassius thing was really a nasty time for FPA/FP relations. Also PLUTO WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN OMG DID YOU GIT PANIT STATUS ADVS PLZ!!!!

All this is just the rehashing of former trends. Hollywood doesn't have original ideas anymore, as that is why they keep remaking movies or turning animation into live-action. Did a classic like Charlotte's Web need to be tampered with? I bet within the next 10 years they decide to remake Scarface again to update it with the current times.

http://ytmnd.com/users/zomglolwtfzorlosthispassword/comments - an example of users that spam SOMETIMES and therefore get away with it. Unless the upcoming Mod system is very sensitive to such activity, I suggest giving Mods or at least Super-Mods the ability to delete comments, in addition to the NWS/WS business, i.e. the odd user that gets pissed spams occasionally, to piss off users individually rather than in an attempt to troll and piss off everyone.

"the FPA is not the Army of Darkness we are just like badass older siblings." - heather, i'm just annoyed with a couple FPA members tactics lately. creating alt accounts to downvote and target people, spamming popular sites instead of arguing intelligently against what they're against. i see GIVEMEREPLAY spamming and it seems he blends in with the lowest of the trolls instead of being a 'badass older sibling'. he gives many of you guys a bad name.

yeah, the nsfw sites kill my worthwhile section too. it sucks because for some reason I have to view the sites, then go into the info on the site and vote because it won't register my vote on nsfw sites on the first click. it kind of pisses me off. I've cleared all my cookies and re-logged in but its still the same old story.

I'm only complaining because it takes me extra effort to vote on a site because it either uses a swearword or shows some nudity. That's my only gripe. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the nsfw along with the regular sites, it's just the extra effort to vote that is driving me crazy.

I need maor power. Even with a decent card and stuff I barely make 60fps, so I might go dewal-coar soon (March?) if I decide it's worth the dough. Funny how I call myself gamekid even though I suck at Counter-Strike (the few times I played long ago anyway) and can hardly press the "B" button for intermittent firing, with my crappy setup. I don't even overclock. That's not a grand coalition. I can do better. (I do remember Poland, at least.)

Quote from leetsauce: "Poland does NOT make it funnier. Anyone who thinks it was "cool" or "clever" to include Poland in this YTMND doesn't understand the meaning of Poland. Mainstream fads, fad compilations, and unoriginality are everything we are against! It's like if a terrorist attacked the US while carrying an American flag and singing the national anthem."

1) The idea of messy noise YTMNDs to satire fads/sites has been around years before the Polend fad, by users such as Daltonofzeal2. So nothing original. 2) The fact that it's now a fad itself destroys the goal of opposing fads. Now idiots demand Polend in collabs as if it was NEDM. 3) I thought the FPA was a light-hearted thing, where users made noise sites in moderation (to avoid becoming a fad) and upvoted each other. It's out of hand now. And how can it be against unoriginality? It's not original either!

Yea, what ChavSlayer said.--- If the FPA has an official "Mission Statement" then I've interpreted those sites all wrong. I'm hoping the "what we stand against" ect. statements are the inane ramblings of a few minor FPAers and not what the Major Players in that group feel.

It's like 90's Punk... when a few lame 90's bands got labeled "PUNK" and then go on MTV and rant about how they are punk, and what punk means and Punk isn't dead and proceed to speak on behalf ALL punk, saying the most stupidest, innacurate, unpunk things. Meanwhile the 1977 punks and the 1982 punks are quietly shaking thier heads, laughing to themselves and saying nothing because what's the point? Maybe that one FPA ranter is like Green Day , and Heather is just the Avril Levine of the FPA....

Hay Max, just thought I'd chime in here with some thoughts about ytmnd these days. I would like to see a more of an area that demonstrates what is popular and leading the pack do to speak. Right now there is no clear area that shows what is the "Best" on the site right now. I know we had Top 5 for a while and that was good, but sites cant grow in popularity if they have to make 670+ votes to go to top voted. I suggest a 'top10 best' that factor in growing popularity (maybe add favs+votes+comments)
