This was Feb 8; nine days ago.
How's it going?
The email came out on that Tuesday Evening, and like I said one of the problems is...he didn't cross check the emails he sent them out to. I had to send out some of those emails again to those who asked and that happened over the past weekend. I still have no idea if everyone got that email which makes it more difficult because now that is a valid excuse for negligence on his behalf. :/
When I checked yesterday the TTs went down to 11 pages.
I noticed some inactive admins out of hiding and helping out more often which some realize and owned up to this problem which is good.
He has not spoken to me since, his last message was about the Notice I had about "Pardon our Dust" which is a notice a user can just X (or close) out. I had spoken to him about my concerns about a particular admin and even logged the chat in question. No response.
Another point of events is that I noticed some changes sofware-wise to the site. The problem though, is that rather than send an email out, because those software changes actually affect the admin policy sent out
it was broadcast on IRC. Not everyone is going to be on IRC every day and if it affects how we police the site, it is the responsibility of those involved to make sure everyone is aware of changes.
I want to note the chain of events that lead to this thread in the first place.
Jan 10th, I sent an email to Neer and a few other staff members about this issue, one of them was also yak.
Since it's my email (meaning my own words) and not some company one, here's a snippet and bolding for emphasis (I sent this message twice, and the reply all message which included him, had the below):
I'd give the inactive admins another week or 2 (so Feb) - or I'll personally start harping on them - or rather campaigning publicly (because it's been said but not done) as to why they persist to be on the site - specially those who have been on staff for over a year. There's no excuse unless they've told you or left a message that they're taking a leave of absence.
The subject was about adding more site admins, Nylak and Ariel MT. He was quick on the response for that, and slow on the second part.
The last email I got from that was "I'll have it done by Friday" (on the same week that email was sent out). That deadline was blown. Mine was not.
The sad part is that I get "well I agree with what she said, but not her methods" but no one was doing anything. We were told "it's on its way, it's on its way" but no action. I gave a specific deadline as to when I'd act. I stood by it.
I still encourage a strike if we have admins not doing the work, but I can't *make them strike* if they are too scared to do it.
