Host Functions/Duties II January 09, 2006 8:36 AM

Please review this threadfor the initial inputs from members.

The old thread is locked so we can continue the flow of this process.

From the inputs gathered, this small list of host duties was generated:

 1. Mediate conflict 

2. Attempt to generate topic content or stimulating conversation when the group is slow.   

3. Host can delete abuse and violations of the CoC and ToS only. 

4. Host may not block any member.


Are these acceptable guidelines for the time being?

Do we need further refinement or additions?

Note:

The reason behind trying to get these guidelins established is that I will be going out of town for a week as of tomorrow. The group can go along as it is, unhosted, or we can establish these simple guidelines,and vote someone in for a trial run.

inputs?

Buck is the list owner. But that still doesn't explain why he isn't listed as the host on the home page...unless I missed an option to hide that on the homepage???  [ send green star]

About manipulation.

Lil,

Did I close the anon thread? No, I will not manipulated. That is the answer.

"I dunno Buck...you might end up eating your words on that one...."

These are not "my" words. These were all suggestions that the community came up with.

This is not my group.

anonymous A GOOD HOST OWNER January 09, 2006 8:49 AM

huh? January 09, 2006 8:49 AM

Then whose group is it?  [ send green star]
 
anonymous  January 09, 2006 8:50 AM

Maybe because he's not the DICKtator style host?  LOL  He probably is doing it because this is a group for the people, by the people, he's facilitating.   I don't show my host status on some of my groups...  just a preference...  it keeps people free from that feeling "hosted" look...  [report anonymous abuse]

Just because the "community" suggested it doesn't mean it has to be so...something detrimental like that..we all think it looks good now but when an extreemly disruptive person finally comes in here, you're going to wish you could do something about it...  [ send green star]

This is why these threads are being generated; so we can discuss this type of thing.

Stress the word "trial" run. If it is a total catastrophe, we can remove the host in question and try again.

Good Morning LD!  [report anonymous abuse]
 
ok January 09, 2006 8:59 AM

Sure, I'm with you on that then.  But it's not just a host I'm talking about, it's any member that is acting extreemly disruptive...ie:  bullying, insulting, spamming, etc...

Censorship December 31, 2007 5:38 PM

What recourse  is  there  if a  host alters posts? (the title) or  deletes posts altogether?  Referring  to posts  hear  which  meet  the  basic  criteria, no  foul  language, not a  personal  attack  etc?

I encountered  this  in a  one  group  I  was  in, the  topic  was altering of posts.

Best wishes,

Zaphod

Then they are paranoid or trying to hide something. The recourse is to let them know that what they are doing is just that. It is dishonest, and serves no purpose.

The ony out to that is if they clearly state that this will happen if things get off topic etc... Some groups like to keep the discussion focus strictly on the subject matter, and I can see reasons for doing this.

Please visit the group "Reforming Our Democracy" for s great example of this. Never had I seen so much censorship in a group that was supposed to be about having real freedom.

Apparently they wish to reform our democracy by silencing opinions that they do not agree with.

Classic...
