Goodday Administrators, Moderators and the ATS Community!
My thread is a important concept I want to present to you all and will appreciate any feedback on it.
What does Tranperancy mean?
a. Easily seen through or detected;
b. Free from guile; candid or open: transparent sincerity.
c. candid, open or frank
On ATS we follow the motto of deny ignorance and strive to know behind the scenes of world affairs..the intricate details, the things which would
never possibly be witnessed by the people outside of ATS community but there is something missing. We are missing the transparency within ATS itself.
I think almost all of you have gone to Wikipedia
at one point or another. On every article page a
tab is there where anyone could click it and find all the related discussion about the said topic and that is why the
administrators there do a fine job of transparency and being neutral because they know everything is being watched. What I propose is something
Our administrators and moderators do a fine and I must add a tough job to handle the affairs of the community but all that happens behind the scenes
without a common member's knowledge. It cannot be seen thus quiet a few people think or may have formed opinions that it's a easy job or other such
kind of opinions. Every once in a while there is a thread or a post on ATS issue thread about delays, decisions, judgments or actions taken etc. It
is understood that the Moderators and Administrators discuss issues before taking a decision. Would it not be good if the members can themselves
the discussions? What would be wrong if normal members not allowed to post there and only view?
ATS members can themselves witness how the decisions are formed, how much load there is on moderators but above all there will be transparency in
everything. That is all I wanted to say. Ofcourse if you would like to add more or change something in this I would appreciate your feedback.
