It's been brought to my attention that there is some confusion over who is and isn't a moderator on the Splinter Cell forums. So in a bid to clear things up and avoid ongoing confusion.....

Community Managers & Forum Managers have powers to moderate ALL forums including the SC forums.

Your dedicated Splinter Cell Moderator team consists of..
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>Vth_F_Smith_ & Woosy[/list]

The Ubisoft forums also have a small team of global moderators who are able to moderate any forum, however they only access forums beyond their ˜normal' domain when support is specifically requested by a moderator of those forums or they see posting which requires urgent attention i.e. offensive/illegal contents and links such as porn.

When any member is given moderator powers they are given a title to clearly identify themselves as a moderator of the board. We do not have ˜secret' or ˜hidden' moderators.

If they don't hold a title they are NOT a moderator.

IF/ When any new moderator is brought on to the team we will introduce them to you all so unless you hear otherwise from a manager Vth F Smith & Woosy are your only moderators

I hope this clears any confusion

I'm pretty sure Kazzoo was introduced when she started almost a year ago now. Either way I'm unsure what benefit it would be now when shes been around so long and as a community you have more direct communications with Ubirazz and I.

The decision to lose titles was taken after members became increasingly confused over who was and wasn't employed by Ubisoft and who was or wasn't a moderator. Something which has been well demonstrated by the need for this thread when it became clear even with titles some were still unsure who was moderating the forums.

There was 1 post like: "Kazzoo is your new CM. Bye" (paraphrased). That's not an introduction. She had 2-3 posts since then, so she's still kinda unknown.

Yeh maybe this is true, although my point was that there are a lot of people who work for Ubisoft and are unknown to you, and as Ubirazz and I are you points of contact its unimportant that you dont know the others http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Would it be possible to put an autocensor of sorts in the title bar so that anyone trying to give themselves an authority such as "moderator" would instead just get *********?

I thought titles could only be bestowed?

Angel Fire

Back when I first joined (don't believe what it says in my post count cus account was deleted) people got titles according to their post count. But spammers and trolls ended that. So the mods came up with the titles, and yes they were bestowed by the mods for different reasons.
Mac gave me mine which surprised the heck out of me when I signed in one day.

It would be nice to see them again but alas there were abuses going on and hence removed.

Kazzoo is supposed to be the community manager for SC so why would UbiRazz be posting here as a CM? I have never seen a post here introducing her as our new CM either or if so, it was rather ambiguous. It would be nice for her to come on down and introduce herself and tell us what she has planned for the community.

As far as titles, Ubi used to have ranks and titles. Everyone had ranks, the more posts, the different rank you had and yes it was abused by a few. Titles were something else altogether. You could have both, but titles were something a mod bestowed upon community members. My original title was Geriatric Member and rank was Soldier. Ranks even varied from forums while titles were global. When Geiger got the Rainbow Six Fan Feedback group going, my original title was changed to R6 Feedback Team. Ranks have been done away with since the software change back in 2003 I think it was.

End of 2003 early 2004 because I did have a rank before the change.

I didn't say he was a CM, I said the community had more direct communication with him and I than with Kazzoo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
However as you've raised the point as a Community Developer he does have a more direct role with the community than a CM who covers a larger number of games, hence the more direct contact.

I wouldn't call the contact with Kazzoo indirect =/ It's just non-existing.

When I use words such as direct and indirect I refer to the difference between those who talk with you directly on the forum and those who don't, Kazz is fully aware of ALL issues affecting the members of this forum and working as hard as anyone to resolve them.

scworld do not assume because you've not personally spoken to someone that they don't do any work, that would be a very ignorant view to hold not to mention very mistaken http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And still, if a position is Community Manager, I think there should be at least some visibility to the people she manages. Ever heard about a PR-spokesperson who didn't do interviews? At least Rhoulette came along from time to time.

If she's not allowed to work with the Community face2face, remove her from the list. After all, there's no point in keeping her nick up there if she doesnt directly communicate with us, is it? Just like with the rest of the SC-team.

And I've spoken to her in a PM, but AFAIK I never received an answer. I'm pretty sure that's my fault too, in some weird way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If she knows about this, why are you posting? A welcoming posts takes 5 minutes. And she's had at least 4 months time to do that. Let's see if she can find time for _us_. We've been waiting long enough.

kleaneasy
09-09-2008, 12:46 PM
scworld when Rhoulette covered the forum the CM role was very different to what it is now and Rhoulette didnt have Forum Managers.

Some things change, and reality is while to you it would only take her a minute to pop in quickly and say hello that 'only a minute' for all requests soon adds up to a full time job just posting on the forums which would prevent her doing her job and was precisely why forum managers were brought on in the first place.

Comment on the name listing taken on board though
