I *DID* read the rules

Are we moomin, or are we dancer?
Are there really no volunteers who are displeased with the current state and thus dedicated to put the necessary effort into moderation duties?

Are they not accountable by removal from their position following misconduct?

Would have thought so, but here we are.

The hell am I reading, here?
FA is the digital equivalent of urban blight, and people who actually care about the neighborhood are mostly waiting to knock it down so they can rebuild on the land rather than keeping this ramshackle operation limping along.

I would volunteer for looking at report tickets
lol me too.. I spend a lot of time looking at the front page as it is..

I dont report submissions anymore as the TTs just pile up. I wish I could be the one to save people from long TT waits ;p

Okay, so that makes three right off the bat.

With official blessing we could find thrice as much with ease and that would almost double the ticket processing capability of the mainsite.

make that 4 lol, already spend 5-6hours on FA day (honestly still better than Facebook and whatever people use these days) just chatting with bored people. Though I can understand why they can't exactly just pick someone from a crowd and say "here ya go, take care off all this sensitive information :V "
(Seriously though, as long as someone have a basic knowledge of the law and copyright, and don't go about power trippin' over anyone who ever looked at them wrong I don't see why it's so hard to staff up on the TT handlers)

If they take applications for volunteers on other sites, I dont see why they dont do it here D:
 
Hell I'd be willing to go and spend a few days identifying TTs that have already been handled to clear them out. I'd also be happy to monitor the front page to take a ruler to the knuckles of the people that can't seem to rate their stuff properly.

Most of the mods here aren't even mainsite mods, so we have less to deal with in terms of reports and such. So comparing the mainsite to the forums is moot.

Of COURSE there are volunteers. Probably plenty of them. The problem is not a lack of volunteers. It is a lack of approval of those volunteers.

Overworked & Underpaid
I feel you guy's pain.

I had a guy spend 7 whole hours in one day spamming my page with hate and flame over a picture I did, beating down myself and everyone who commented on the argument.
It went from a simple 'i hate you because you're breathing' to slurs, insults, and eventual threats. The next day he had posted a graphic, if poorly drawn, death threat with myself clearly labeled. The picture is STILL up after almost a year, the ticket was never commented on whatsoever.

And yet the one time that I mentioned in a journal about a guy who was killing off adoptables, I got banned.
Nowhere in it did I tell people to boycott or attack the guy. I never insulted him. I simply stated his intentions and the fact that he would likely buy people's characters without telling them what he was intending to use them for just in case some of my friends would get upset over people buying their art just to murder the characters. I try to log in the next day and I was told that I had instigated mob behavior, encouraged others to attack the guy, and stirred drama and thus wasn't allowed in for a while. I;m literally afraid to mention ANYONE in my journals now in case just saying a name or stating an opinion of someone will get me banned again.

I tried e-mailing in to see what the criteria was for drama since "this guy might upset you if you're not careful" ranks so very much higher on the sin scale than "stupid ***** I hope you die in a fire and I'm gonna scream swears at you all night then murder you in my gallery for all to see". I have yet to receive a reply from that too.

I gave up reporting things. One guy who's whole gallery was nothing but child porn actually was protected from people reporting him. Apparently admins saw people reporting the child porn as an act of harassment and any attempts to call him out could be seen as a bannable offense.

I freaking give up. These rules make no sense if nobody will stick to them.

Went back to check on a ticket I had on cub porn. Over a year now. Hell, this Sunday it'll be a year and one month. Another about art theft that's almost a year old now too. Junk like this is why I won't report anything now.

Just discovered a 14 year old just favorited an adult submission and mine and is on a rampage with porn in their favorites. I almost didn't file a ticket at all.
Maybe something will get done before I'm at the age of retirement.

I probably shouldn't have bothered with making a ticket at all considering the obvious situation we have here and will continue to have. It's at that point where people on the mainsite ARE getting that mindset of "oh nothing is being enforced so do whatever"
Quite clearly cub porn is getting through and staying for very long periods of time among theft and some other things. It seems unless an admin personally sees it then the submission/content will stay unchecked forever.

Did I mention that this is bad?
