Ever get tired of not knowing what this supposed "moderating" team get up to? Sod all, it bloomin' looks like. I mean, come on. What even is there for them to be doing!?
News updates are sparse, and barely informational. They don't tell anybody anything about what goes on day-to-day on Neocodex.
Frankly, I'm sick of all this "trust us we staff lel" nonsense. I demand transparency!

TRANSPARENCY!

So, here's a topic for staff members to pop in and make a wee post whenever they do something of note, to let you know if they're working on fun things behind the scenes, or whatever they want.
Non-staff can post too, of course, and query the goings on.

Please do remember, though, that the proper procedure for making a complaint about a staff member's actions is to PM them, their direct boss, or an administrator. "Naming and shaming" posts will be tidied out of this topic lickety-split.

 
Sweeney's activities in the last few days-ish:
Well, hosting the 100-post day, of course, and designing/awarding that award. (To 21 people, by the way! Uh, wow!)
Making/awarding the Burn Heal award and it's accompanying topic.
Gearing up to post the voting thread for Photographica.
Doing some behind-the-scenes reorganising of our archives, including making the old Contest Team information available to our Glorious Contest Leader.
Adding UStream compatibility to our media tags ( :D).
Quietly working on some nifty BBCode for setting user-timezone deadlines - no more figuring out when to submit a contest entry by, the forum will calculate it for you! (If I can get it working... xD)
The Neocodex Beautification Project - sorry, guys, but the deets are Priv+ ;)
Collaborating with other members on an investigation into our most recent banned member (which involved accessing their PMs! *dramatic gasp*)
Voting on the current crop of Private applications! Oooh!

And the usual amount of messing about with ACP for funsies.

I like this.

Most of the times, your work is not seen, so people might think you're not doing anything at all. It will help give you even more recognition for all the effort you put in the site everyday.

And, of course, it's also good for all of us, nosy curious about what you guys are working to change/improve in the nearest future.

I have a paid project I'm working on so even after finishing the Spring Semester, I'm reading, writing, (massive) editing, random research to prevent contradictions and peeping into Codex whenever I lost motivation.

  • I haven't done anything spectacular recently on the staff side of things, but I do help where ever I can. (this sentence just screams slacker)
  • I go through the reports and do what I can, but most of the time, a certain somebody is on it like white on rice before I even get to read it (Bah, @Sweeney).
  • I reviewed all the Private Candidate Applications and made some interesting comments to make sure everyone voting gives the person a fair shot (but that can be said of everyone).
  • Basic teamwork stuff like communicating with staff about stuffff and thanngs.

Nope, Valentino's. 
I posted after him and my post wasn't showing up, then Napi said it was doing that for a few days, so I reported it. lol

- I'm working on a secret guide of sorts for you all. Well, at least for people interested in starting up contests... 

- I took a gander at the old contest area (Thanks, Sweeney!) and found a bunch of old contests that would be interesting to revive. Since summer is coming up, we're going to start pushing out some fun contests for you all.

- Working on reports when I can, of course, but like Keil said, Sweeney is on 'em like white on rice :p 

- Putting my two cents in and voting on Private Applications. 

- I made a list a while back of future contest awards (mostly seasonal) so I'll probably start working on those too now that it's summer.

I hate the mods.

 

I heard they actively sacrifice animals to some pagan Australian god.

I've been adding a few things behind the scenes (for example the colourful usernames hook) and doing some general organisation work. I haven't had a lot of time this past two weeks to achieve what I have wanted to due to work. Hopefully that will change over the coming couple of weeks.

 

Will add more stuff once I'm well under way with it all.

@Ali's Spatula of Apathy? That's probably not going to help.

For the days when I just can't be bothered. (Why do I never get notifications when you tag me?)

LEAKER! LEAKER!

It's not leaking...you just went round the corner, anybody could have followed!

I've been tidying this topic up :)

 
Today, everyone is getting involved with some fun leaking investigations, and trade disputes.
I have also been adjusting some incorrect forum permissions.

Whee!

 
ALL THE USERBARS!
And some small bits of housekeeping. Nothing big going on right now...

Promise ;)

I've been running this Altador Cup team harvester thing for the last 3 hours and hoping it doesn't break before it reaches the end of the 180,000+ list. xD
