Main discussion

Note to readers: the conversation below is not an exact quote, but a close account

Moving forward, the term “legacy” will include all Discord staff/moderators who are not current elected committee members.

Charlotte arrives, Vincent and Krzystof leaves. The remaining minutes are written by Chives.


When should moderation permissions be removed from members?

10 minute break

Charlotte’s plan

People agree maybe 2 levels of moderators, e.g. one does tasks e.g. removing spams, another does more including server admin

Paula leaves

Members vote: concerns about manipulation if not much restrictions on who can vote (everyone in the Discord server can vote), maybe some verification e.g. requires matriculation of other forms of membership. Moderators can be of a higher level of trust as they need to be approved by moderators (committee/non-committee) also with the impeachment process, the system should be robust.
