thank you so much Buck.  I think you have made a very good concious decision.  This was the reason so many of us did not want that option... it can be abused easily.

It took guts for you to just do it without a vote.  I for one, think you are quite a stand up guy.  You just topped my list of people I want to emulate when I grow up.

Improvements to host moderation tools Friday, 7:15 PM


Hello,

We understand that managing active groups can be very time consuming and are always looking for ways to make things easier and more efficient for our Group Hosts. To assist group hosts in effectively moderating their groups, we have developed an enhancement to the delete post tool. We know that sometimes threads can get far off topic, which can make if difficult for the community to effectively discuss important topics. To aid in resolving this problem, the delete tool can now be used to delete an individual post, or delete a post as well as all posts below it on the thread. When deleting everything below a post, the host must enter a description about why they have removed the posts, which will be posted at the end of the thread. We hope that you find this tool useful, stay tuned for further enhancements to group hosting tools in the near future

GD and LD:

Look guys - I don't agree with what Carolyn did last night.  But she apologized.  She apologized the way she apologizes.

Now you want her to do something that just isn't in her character - apologize for the specifics.  You can't force someone to be who you want them to be.

She was wrong. She apologized.  Please let it go. We are not about trying to make people do everything the way we want them to be.  That defeats the purpose of the group.

I understand why you want the type of apology that you want.  But you aren't going to get it. CArolyn has to apologize the way she apologizes.

Now you 2 are calling her an a**hole for what she has done.  Should she expect you to apologize specifically for that in the way that she determines.

The point is, when does this stop?

Can we admit and accept that last night got screwed up and move on from there?  Or do we have to drag this out so that nothing else can get done?

Please, for the sake of getting along, let this go.  I am not blaming you for anything. I say let it go and move on.

Just an observation - Carolyn might have expressed herself in a manner not all agree with, for her own reasons, whatever they might be, but the fact remains that YOU choose to 'be baited' and you (and Lildarlin) are now the one8s) continuing to disrupt the peace - this might not be popular with you - but it is the truth.

People apologize in the manner they are capable of for the reasons they are capable of conceiving of - that is not always obvious to others.

Now please, will you let it go, accept the apology that was extended to you, specific or not, and be a bigger person than this - let it go.

SHE'S NOT  THAT IGNORANT AS YOU MAKE HER OUT TO BE PPPORRR THING SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND  SHE CAN ONLY SAY THE WORD  ..SHE CAN'T BE SPECIFIC ITS MUCH TO HARD FOR HER

Someone has to stand up and not let this stuff happen,,,and either carolyn is adult enough to apologize specifically or she not!  So far shes not, and that says she would not with other members as well...

Maybe that should be what everyone has to do when they do break the peace in the group..thats assumong you all want a peaceful group

According to your actions ..you seem not to want one this is what you do..

this is your entertainment

You will make one of these groups every week, and you will get some poor soul like dale  , buck whoever to start it , and then you will come and styart your stuff all over again.

Your names are alphabetical so get over it! This post is for both of you but also for everyone else to read.

We all have 'pasts' on Care2, big fuckking deal? All of us are never going to get along ALL of the time, this is a given. There will be bashing (unfortunatly) so what?

The trick is to 'get over it and move on', without holding grudges! Personally I have HUGE issues from the past re: Montana. BFD! This is now and when tomorrow comes it will be another day as well. I can easily move forward and let the past go re: Montana, and everything else. For this group to work it matters not if Carolyn or GD gets pissed off. They can unjoin, rejoin, etcetera. So should it be for any other member.

If there are deletions in this group for anything other than egregious violations of TOC or COC then this group will fail, period!

This proposed group should be OPEN to everyone including Donna (yes I said Donna) and anyone else who chooses to join. We will regulate ourselves or this group will fail.

No one should have a louder voice than anyone else, including Buck or myself. Someone has to toggle some features on or off but otherwise this group has got to reach the point where the members input is all that controls what is what here.

Some of us are not going to like what happens here from day to day, so what? The whole idea is to have a place where just about anything can happen or be discussed or posted.

This morning as you all read this, including Carolyn and GD I think the best course of action is to let last night stand on it's own and move forward to see what can be accomplished TODAY.

Common ground with common sense should rule the day.

"Well, I don't deny this as a valid scenario, but: What if we could show care2 admins that we, as a community, can come together and somewhat police ourselves? This might sway them to accept that creating a care2 hosted community site would not be as much of a burden as they orginally estimated."

We have had about two years to show Care2 what we as a community do, when we come together and "police" ourselves...

There really isn't anything wrong with "Town Hall" - except that people have difficulties in accepting the consequences of a member as a host. I wonder how many of those who don't trust WolfSinger as a host have tried to discuss with her about the problems. How many have brought their problems to be discussed in the group and accepted the majority's decision? I know a lot who have brought their problems to the group but not accepted any other solution, answer or decision but their own, and therefore left the group.

There is really nothing wrong with Freedom Square either, or in the other places, talk of the town, community hall and what ever they are called. Except that they are owned by a member of Care2, which makes most of the other members suspicious and wary, and that makes the groups to not work, to die.

It all happens too quickly, with too much frenzy. It's as if someone ( s ) tried to force forth a new group... In the end it's just one more of those member owned places where people don't dare to go because they are afraid of consequences, because they don't personally like the owner or the co-hosts, because they cannot say anything they like, because Freedom of Speech and TOS doesn't accept certain things to be said...

Charlie,

I don't know who posted that and where, but I'm sure no non-anonymous would have the guts to say that about Jeffrey, but we know that there are a lot of people who could have said that. Most of the people do not have the moral courage to stand for what they say. Now, because that has been said, we could have discussed what has been said instead of starting to discuss about negativity, negative impact, strifes and nastyness.

What is the meaning of the group? To get the BS out of C2F&S.

So - as long as we expect people to be something else than what they show they are every day in Care2, this is not going to work. We are just creating another group like those existing ones, and if that's what we are doing, we could just as well join the existing ones and try to make them work.

Closed group - ABSOLUTELY NOT!!
Who will be accepting the members? Who will be saying "your profile is a clone, you can't come in, you I know I cloned you, you're my friend, so you can get in". And what is the meaning of this group? Just one more "town hall"? Then go to the existing groups and try to change things that already exist.   [ send green star]

If this group wants a passive host January 06, 2006 11:30 PM

then either people are gonna have to pussyfoot around and be extra sweet and diplomatic or develop thicker skin.

If it seems like most people wanna be nice to each other, great. Right on. But unfortunately IMHO that's not always gonna happen. 

But if you don't like the way you feel you're being treated in a group with a host that is supposed to remain passive or you don't like the way things are being run...well it's just not an option to yell at the host and ask him/hr to take action.

I am merely a placeholder of a group that is in place to try and get people to come together in an effort to create some unity here at care2.

we all know we have differences, and we all know there are things from the past that will be hard to overcome.

I have made many changes from my beginnings here at care2. If I can do it, anyone can...

No anonynous postings January 06, 2006 10:49 PM

I think anonymous postings is a "cheap" and "round about" way to say something.  I personally feel that if a person is not willing to post their profile, etc., WE DON'T NEED THEM HERE.

I further suggest that we keep this group seperate from C2C leadership until we get up and rolling the way we want.  Then, maybe invite them to share their thoughts.

Next, this needs to be a group that is "closed membership".  Wait, let me explain....

I have looked at some people's profiles and the list of groups goes on and on and on.  When you spread yourself too thin, how can you be effective?  In the group I host, it is closed membership with a two question application: 1)  Are you sincere about joining and why? 2) If you need to be away from the group, do you promise to contact the "host" either by direct email through group posting?  I have 31 members in my group and only two applicants have a turned down.  I won't go into that now. 

Thanks for listening.

I don't have any experience with, or opinion about your flexibility Buck, but Elizabeth has expressed my thoughts/concern/confusion quite well.  

I just hope we are not going to debate about how we will do things here until we all get burned out and move on. Believe me I've been on committees where that's just what happened. We want to make good choices but do want to do it, not just keep talking about it. I'll hang in for a while and I thank you all for caring to make this happen.

The only thing I could see happening is poll making alternate identities to vote for it.

 January 06, 2006 9:52 PM

This is kind of weird.  There is a dynamic going on here that is distincly uncomfortable.  Two opposing views, and each is determined to stick where they are.

I thought we were trying to avoid this, and I think we are being treated to an example of why we wanted a Care2-run group.

Buck thinks that we should wait for more people, although there isn't any particular reason why, except that he feels we should wait until we have more people.  But, this is becoming about what Buck as host wants to do, or thinks we should do, when the majority have clearly declared a consensus of turn off the anon.

The idea is to avoid host bias, host opinions.  The hosts should be pretty neutral - which is not what we have.

The issue itself is not such a big concern, because anon can be turned off later (altho I prefer it now, because we have clearly voted no).  The real issue is the one of the process.  We have, I think, decided on a fairly clear mandate of minimal hosting with well established rules decided by the majority.  Well, we have a majority vote, and yet the host is making a decision as an individual because that is what he wants to see happen.

This is the antithesis of what we all said we wanted.  And yet, because he is the host, he can hold us all hostage to his decision.  Wrong dynamic.

This is no criticism of Buck's decision - he is doing what he thinks is right, and that is the problem. If this is a precursor of what will happen when the group starts, the group will never function as we wanted it to.  We had decided, I think, that it should not be about the hosts' personal likes and dislikes.

Oh well......

PLease don't take this as a personal attack on Buck.  I like Buck just fine. I just think this shows us why this is a problematic thng to attempt to do.

I would like to suggest what seems to me to be a very easy solution to this anon or no-anon problem.  Why not open a poll specifically for this groups members, just a simple yes or no on whether or not we should keep the option in the group.  It would be a continuous poll that the newbies could consistently take when they join us and that way we would know what the popular opinion always is.  This way, whoever is in charge can turn the option on or off, whichever way the vote sways.  Make sense?   [report anonymous abuse]

Let us just ignore them for the time being.

I am confident the consensus will be for it to be eliminated, which I have no problems with, and even if I did, it would be what the group voted for so it would be that way regardless.

anonymous While I agree with Charlie, January 06, 2006 9:33 PM

that the Anon Option has to be disabled, I also realize that this Group is still forming, and considering it's purpose, the turn-out in terms of mambers is likely to increase dramatically within the next 48 hours - because of the time-zones - so to let the anon feature stay enabled until all who have invitations to reply to actually have had a chance to do so, and let them vote before deciding is acceptable.

Enough people are around here right now to be able to take care of one or two Anons on a filth-spree.

 January 06, 2006 9:32 PM

I read the thread, and that  is why I am certain it will be voted against.

I simply ask why it is such a problem to wait a little bit. We are only talking about 12 hours here.

I was thinking 24 hours before any rules were set in stone.

Is that not acceptable?

We do not have enough of a variety in here to have this vote yet.

As someone mentioned in another thread, right now we are mostly familiar with each other.

I say we wait and see if others will gravitate to this group in an attempt to actually make something happen.

You can hold the vote though. I will just not act upon it with less than 30 people in the group at this time...


We are over 30 people, the vote so far is overwhelming. Anon should be turned off for now. It can be voted on at another time if this group grows and the consensus changes.

 January 06, 2006 8:56 PM

For the ones opposed to the anon feature:

I understand, I have had the same outlook before. For now though, with the intentions of having a community site, 56 members is not enough to determine whether this is the consensus or not.

I suggest this:

Tomorrow or sunday, we setup up a vote for anon feature. The outcome of this vote will be good for 1 week. After the one week we can setup up a vote again, and determine if it will be permanent or another set period of time.

This will allow for other members to join. and know that this is not a permanent decision.

This must be a desicion that the majority of the group makes.

"If a member can't put their profile with their words those words are unimportant to me and they should be to everyone else"

If this is the case then it should be easy to ignore.

I would also ask the anon posters, please respect the anon feature, it should not be your ticket to berate people. If youhave a strong opinion then fine, but if you are using just to agitate, then you are no good to this plan.

If you do not wish to be a part of the community then you can ignore it.

There are enough people here who wish to have somthing like this, so please let us try.

Sound ok?

I have read everything posted and I have several comments and then to bed I go.

Anon should NOT be allowed for any reason. If a member can't put their profile with their words those words are unimportant to me and they should be to everyone else. Mischief is all we will get and that will be prevalent enough as it is.

Hosting should be revolved and these hosts should do as little as possible other then to be a presence. Deletions should be minimal at most except for obvious violations of TOC & COC, etc.

No flagging, ever.

Bannning should be by formal vote, taken by the members, over a minimum of 48 hours so a cooling off period can weed out knee jerk reactions to any unpleasantness.

I apologize for not joining in earlier but real world things took precedence.

3rd observation January 06, 2006 8:31 PM

3rd observation... 8:21 PM

I know it has only been a few hours since this group was started. I have been reading some of the posts and I have seen the concerns that people are showing.

There is a clear dilema that has presented itself:

---Do the people of care2 take it upon themselves to create a sitewide community group, or should care2 accept the burden of this?

The quick and easy answer of course is: let care2 create, and host a group of this nature, and I am sure, we all pretty much agree with this.

Now, what possibly could be the reason they do not wish to do this?

Ideas as to why(feel free to add):

--Lack of manpower, and/or time to monitor the group.

*This could be a very easy scenario to imagine. The shear numbers of care2 members could be overwhelming on the current staff.

--They feel that the current setup is sufficient to handle all complaints, feedback, suggestions, and it allows the members to create their own communities without being overshadowed by a large care2 singular community site.

*This, of course, could be acceptable. As it stands now; what exactly in care2.com is not working as well as it should when it comes to getting your message across to the people of care2 IE: Petitions, polls, blogs?(My participation in some of these events is admittingly lack, so please let everyone know if there are issues with this)

--It was mentioned that if we let the pressure off of care2 (by trying to create, and manage our own community group) to create a group such as this, then they will just let it go by the wayside, and not put forth the effort to create a care2 hosted community group.

* Well, I don't deny this as a valid scenario, but: What if we could show care2 admins that we, as a community, can come together and somewhat police ourselves? This might sway them to accept that creating a care2 hosted community site would not be as much of a burden as they orginally estimated.

So there are, obviously, things to consider from this point out. I am glad everyone has come into this group and posted there opinions. I honestly think it was, for the most part civil, possibly more than it has ever been.

I think we can look at this as a positive move towards creating a group that we all have been discussing over the past few days.

I also wanted to add that:

I am new to the F&S group. Although, I have been a member of care 2 for quite some time, I localized my involvement to the political boards for the most part.

My intentions here is not create a community site run by myself. The idea to create this group was more to discuss the fact that we need a group such as this to bring care2 together more than it has ever been before.

Many people have proposed many great ideas, but with a community of this size we all need to comprimise a bit, and settle with something. It might not be the ideal situation we are all looking for, but it is a start in the right direction.

I suggest we all nominate some future hosts for this site, and we will see how this process unfolds.

As I have said in other threads, I will have no problem letting it go to whomever we feel most capable. I also would like to remind you that until these decision have been finalized, there is total freedom in this group.

Think about how you would like to be treated, and understand that sometimes it is better to just walk away from some responses.

With all that said. I will make a post sometime tomorrow and set a date for nominating future hosts.

This is a plan that I have in mind, and please, let me know what you think of it.

--There will be a tima and date set for nominations. On this date, at that hour, nominations will be accepted an voted on. I would like to set a date and an hour so we are not dragging this out for days at a time. There will be a time frame in which all nominees will be accepted, and a time frame for the voting on all nominees.

If all of this sounds acceptable to everyone then let's give it a try. If you have anything to add, or any other suggestions then please let us all know.

Until tomorrow then...

Invictus verite
