The following are my comments as a member and do not represent the views of ATS or staff:
( I can't get the Mod member post tags right)
[ Mod ]Your comments are much appreciated! I'm very new to Moderator duties and I am frankly humbled to be working alongside a truly caring staff.
The following example I think is revealing :
There was one member that we were all very concerned about which generated 7 pages of responses.
We deal with dozens of issues per day and that is a great amount of time to spend on just one member.
I'm gratified that you feel you are finding opportunities to grow here on ATS.
To make a community we have to be able to deal with our feelings and set standards where everyone knows and feels that they are not only safe but
respected by other members and staff.
Verbal feuding and assaults create a negative atmosphere and brings conversations off topic.
We want ATS to feel like a home
, and I don't mean a dysfunctional one.
We all have our bad days and that includes Moderators and Staff.
Forgive us if we come across a bit strong at times.
We're just trying to keep things free, positive and pleasant for all.
And we'll forgive you guys for whatever you can throw at us.
