In this post I wanna talk about one report we received:
Today I received a report about PP (@PPCB), which is the first sheet/database manager I accepted.
In the report their detailed that he forces people to do stuff otherwise they get reported on to this list. Me as the owner of this list, is not ok with these kind of actions, but the report failed to deliver evidence. So I can’t ban him just because someone says so, PP denied this accusation so I can’t be positive neither negative so he stays a manager.
PP states and provided me chat logs of that group (IE screenshots and .XML chat log) that he said that they land on this list if they continue group invite spamming him, of that group that, In my eyes it isn’t really abusing his powers, because he says that he doesn’t want to participate in these group chats. And if that really continues after his message then it’s an acceptable reason to get on this list.
So if PP actually abuses his powers as manager of this list, I will revoke his managing permissions.
Also the report said that I should check up how reliable the feedback is. Yes Google Sheets and Forms aren’t the best ways to do these type of things but we adjusted them today for this reason.
All new reports will now require you to log in to Google and you’re limited to 1 report, I will try to make sure that you still be able to submit new ones. Also the reports are only visible to managers only now but each reported email address on the database gets a report number so that we know which email address belongs to which report. 0 stands for non-form reports such as DMing me or otherwise.
I want to point out that we adjust the database if someone apologizes to their behavior (limited to 1 time of course) and we can’t be perfect at everything. This is a fairly new idea, I hope if this list ever gets to really large scale that we can improve ourselves such as using a custom website for this.
Thanks for your understanding of this situation.
If you have anything to add here, just want to talk about the moderation of this list and so forth please do that here I will respond to your questions and requests.
