'change of guard'...

variety is the spice of life. Last time we brought about interesting changes on site and results were very positive.

In same spirit I am proposing a few changes to bring changes in administration of this site...

Before I begin...lemme first quote a very famous quotation that I read many years back reg 'leadership'..

Quote:
Purpose of a leader is not to make followers but to make more leaders
as mentioned in some other thread. We have 6 moderators on this site. Over-staffed? Definitely! Moreover there is no equal representation from both sides of globe. Also some moderators have been carrying-out their duty for ages now. Nothing wrong with their administration skills but its time they need to 'create more leaders' under them!

I am proposing a new concept of moderation on Echarcha. A concept that will take moderation from generalists to so-called specialists.

Skeleton

1. Each sub-forum will have subject-matter specialists as moderators

2. total moderators will be 4 for each sub-forum- 2 from India and 2 from US. this will ensure 24-hr coverage of site for moderator control. ratio is adjustable.

3. Trinity- Amthaji, cooldudeji and yogiji (alphabet-wise) will be super-moderators. No, they wont have final say in anything and they can be moderators in sub-forums but they will be reserved for 'decision to ban members'

4. IP logs is an extremely sensitive issue and personally I would never like any moderator (even admin except in legal cases) to go through IP addresses of users here. So I would like IP address feature to be with admin only and once the moderators submit their request to trinity for banning members and once trinity agrees to the moderator's decision then Admin will take necessary action to ban ID at IP level or anything. This means that 'trinity' will be jury to decide on banning members and without recommendations from moderators of sub-forums they cannot exercise their powers. If personally they want to ban a member than their case should go to other two super-mods for review and consequently to admin to take action. Exception being advertisers and spammers.

5. Each sub-forum will have a sticky notification thread in which the moderator of that sub-forum will compulsorily write a short-report of changes he has carried out as part of his role. Since its a division-of-labor scenario, moderators of sub-forum wont find it a burden.

6. How the newly appointed moderators take up rules and how they work in symbiosis with their fellow moderators will decide any problems coming out from moderatorship.

I am proposing names of Echarchans who, I think, are fit to be future leaders. 2-2 moderator scenario may get changed if a suitable candidate is not found for a sub-forum from a region. U stands for US and I stands for India.

1. Echarcha Lounge

a. FRIDAY SPECIAL

U- amthaji, dirty,
I- aragorn, swami

b. LAL-MIRCHI

U- yogiji, desibaba, sunny, dirty (in case cooldude is absent for long)
I- cooldude

(since its a restricted sub-forum.cooldude's prolonged absence will not make much difference)

c. SOAPBOX

U- yogiji, amthaji, jai
I- aragorn

d. VIEW-COUNTERVIEW

U- jai, sunny, rakhiji
I- sprite. indian (to replace jai if he is active)

e. Hindi

Re: 'change of guard'...

I request all members to come forward and show their interest and enthusiasm in taking up these duties.

let us try this setup for 3/6 months and see if we can create more leaders!

let us have a sense of belonging to this site with new energy, focus and determination

LET US EXPERIMENT

Re: 'change of guard'...

I am sorry to all our beloved moderators for creating this thread but let us not get choked and give opportunity for others to also be leaders.

I apologise specifically to jai and snny who took moderatorship very recently. Sorry for reducing your powers bros.

landya is not at all regular now-a-days...I want people who are regular to take up 'cleaning' activities

and I swear I had you in my mind when I was making india specific moderators but even you are not seen regularly here. I wanted to fit you in 'current affairs' replacing sunny and taking up vacant berth in india-specific moderator and also in view-counterview sub forum instead of jai...

Sorry If I have missed your presence but are you regular here?

Re: 'change of guard'...

Do you really feel these many people are required to moderate
Ours is a free speech site and so moderation is required only for spammers and sometimes during fights.

Yes there should be mods from India because there is only one mod during the day time,but again I many times see Chapai and Amthabhai online till 12.30pm and they are back by 6pm or so.Our Tantuji is a round-the-clock visitor to this site you cant predict when he will be online.So for a few hours the site is left unattended but I know many times our Cooldude bhai visits and clears up things.
So I dont think mods are that much required.The list you have made makes all the participants the police

I would once again say lets leave the mods as it is, if possible let the admin add a moderater from India to help Cooldude apart from that there is no need for moderators at present.
Apna site jitna simple hi utna hi acha lagta hi,with six moderators people are having so much issues with them imagine if we have more then how many complain will the admin and super moderators will have to handle.

Anyone supporting my view ?

Re: 'change of guard'...

But Spriteji, by creating all these sub-moderation, aren't we making the site even more complicated? Why do we need sooooooooooooo many moderators? Its not like this site is a victim of constant abuse.

its better to have ministers taking care of their ministeries instead of preseiden, PM, deputy PM etc controlling everything.....

site simple hi rahega....I fail to understand how site will become complicated and how freedom of speech will get affected...

in any case...thanks for your response...

I agree! Echarcha would soon be renamed as MNS with every damn worker trying to hog the limelight and indulge in some "goonda raj" under the able guidance of Raj Thackerey.
