Mad Money - My $0.02

Postby rvloon » Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:04 pm UTC

Well.

I just caught up. And I am going to do a serious post on our group and Madness alike. Spoilered for your protection; feel free to skip if you like.

Spoiler:
I lost sleep over the locking of the thread. Seriously.

So, I let this ruminate a bit further, and I came up with the following:

Apparently the moderators want to have some fun, once a year, for about one week. Fine. No problem. So they use filtering tricks and whatnot to make posts harder to read, hopefully for humorous effect. Ok. Fine. I can see how that would be appropriate compensation for what I assume is a volunteer job.

What I don't understand is how they wouldn't want people to complain about it. Sure, you can ignore it, but just as you're responsible for your actions when moderating, you're also responsible for your actions when having fun, being moderators. 'Nah, you got pregnant by a moderator during the Madness, but that doesn't count because he was only having fun'.

In other words, I don't mind you having the fun as long as I am only mildly disturbed. In other words, as neighbours it's ok to have a party every now and again, as long as I can still kinda-sorta hear the sound of the TV show I want to watch.

With great power comes great responsibility.

Locking a thread is abuse of power. It's that simple. It's not fun. It's not creative. It's not in any shape or form an application of one's moderator's power that could be even construed as amusing.

An analogy would be: I rent a house. Once a year I am not quite sure I can enter my house, with my stuff in it, because the owner has decided it is 'fun' to change the locks. You know, it is only once a year. You know, it is only for a couple of hours. Why? Because he can. He has that power, that authority.

So, I am not impressed by most of the moderator's answers. What's worse, instead of a mature response, I saw 'it was not me, it was someone else' kind of responses. You moderators, are a group. Just like we are, as OTTers. The actions of one reflect on you all. So, by applying the rules of responsibility (those do not get postponed during the madness) it makes you all responsible. So, don't make explanations. Don't rationalize. Recognize the action of locking, for what it was. Poor judgement. Or, if you want to: poorly planned amusement. Or fun at someone else's expense. There's a difference between having an effect on everyone's perceptions of the forums and the denial of access to a forum.

O, and 'filters do not apply to you so we had to come up with something else' - really? You had to? At least try to be creative. The OTT is the prime example of creativity of all kinds of art forms. It is also one of the few places on the forum that outlasted its original comic and even managed to have follow-on material in through Randall-fashion. As such, we welcome creativity. This, however, was not creative. And for some of us, painful. We were locked out - and lamely allowed back in. It's all very drunk-fraternity. And the short duration is, and should not be, used as an excuse. For some people in this world, little niches are where we can hide safely from the scars inflicted upon us by a harsh reality. And for some, the OTT is one such a place. Whether it can continue to be such a place, is always open to discussion. To an extent we are at the mercy of the host. However, that discussion and decisionchain is beyond the mandate of the madness.

Now, I am looking in the other direction. What I see is that some of us OTTers go out in other threads and continue the OTT-mannerisms. I don't think that's a good idea either. Especially because I have seen examples where OTTers carry on as they're still in the OTT, sometimes just taking over. Sure, we are a friendly bunch. Sure, we are creative. But we are not a religion that has to spread outside of the OTT either. Just as we do not welcome flames or heated disputes here, we should also be aware of that other's are not waiting on OTTism outside of here. I read through some of the Madness thread and I see too much of a bandwagon-atmosphere ('bring it on, moderators! we OTTers can take whatever you throw at us and make us stronger'). It's not a matter of one outdoing another, or a challenge in creativity and we OTTers must be aware where the boundaries are. Those who want to visit, are welcome. Those participating in the OTT wanting to participate in other threads should feel free to do so, as well, but not necessarily manifest oneself as an OTTer on those occasions.


And with that said, I have been curmudgeonly enough for today.

Let's now have some actual fun.

:shock:

I was busy in the Outside yesterday, and then returned to discover that the OTT had been locked! It had already been unlocked by the time I found ou, so it was not at much of a blow to me as to others; but still, quite a surprise.

And I suggest we start calling computers "organized sand" now.ni

Warning: Rant inside.
Spoiler:
Well, I'm glad I wasn't here for the Locking. I'm a bit angry right now. I didn't consider the wordfilters bullying -- actually I thought those were kind of funny. But this. I have no other word for it but bullying. Maybe it wasn't intended as such. But it doesn't have to be intentional to be bullying. I learned that over a thousand pages ago, during a rot13 episode, when I made a comment that was supposed to be "friendly teasing". Others called me out on it for being condescending, mean, etc. Now more than ever I see that they were right.

It's not just the Locking that makes me mad. It's this general anti-OTTer attitude I see on much of the forum, particularly the madness thread recently. On the other hand, I can sort of see why we could be perceived as weird and cultish. But still. This dislike, this hate even, that's directed at us. If this was supposed to make us venture out to the other parts of the fora, it's had the opposite effect on me. I have been posting in other threads, for several months now, without even making OTTish references for the most part. Now, I'm not so sure. Why would I want to go to a place where I'm hated?

I do have this to say to my fellow OTTers though: If you do venture out to otherthreads, try to keep OTT references to a minimum, or avoid them entirely. We kind of got carried away in the madness thread, and I'm sorry for my part in that. I can understand people disliking us a bit when we force our inside jokes on their threads.

I'm still four pages back, so all of this may have already been said. I had to get it off my chest, though.

Well, in an attempt to be more molpish, I see this in topic review:

de Furious Doodling occurs once a yip (year) an' lasts for about a wip (hemifortnight). ahbe just currently in de throes ah it doodliness at de moment. We've had tons ah Clevelandites debasement lately due to de fact it was de 1 yip TIMEversary ah de beginning ah Time. So you found ahbe quite busy. Stick around awhile!

I know my sudden debasementing was a product of finally having Time to breathe, the fact that I participated in the Timeversary was a bonus. Also, I think the OTTscars and the Furious Doodling might have something to do with why we're still out of the basement (well, that and the general awesomeness of the OTT).

Does anyone have another one of those fancy "thread postrate" charts? I know it really slowed down for a couple mips, but I'm wondering how much it has picked up recently, since I did my first schizoketchup on the Timeversary.

Purplepants77 wrote:Holy chirp you xuys are movin fast up there!


This RECKONINGSPEAK must have something to do with it because I haven't seen y'all move this fast since the past (sometime). I'm swimming through my sea1 of blitz condiments as fast as I can, but I think I'm falling further and further back into the past. Well, maybe I'm just temporally stagnant by comparison to the fast moving future. Is that like running on a treadmill and slowing getting closer and closer to slipping off the back? I hope not, that always looked painful! :shock:

Also, I'm absolutely loving the BANANAtars y'all have adopted. They look awefulsome, even from way back here in the past! Keep up the good work and try not to get to much mustard in my ketchup; I never liked that stuff anyway :wink:

So I wasn't going to add my opinion. I was just going to sit it out and wait for the normal level of molpishness to return but rvloons and Earthling on Mars hit on a few reoccurring problems so I might as well say something this time so I don't have to next time. And it will happen.

Spoilered for those who wish to skip:
Spoiler:
rvloon wrote:An analogy would be: I rent a house. Once a year I be no quite sure I kyan enter me house, wid me stuff in it, because de owner has decided it be 'fun' to change de locks. You know, it be only once a year. You know, it be only for a couple ah hours. Why? Because he kyan. He has dat power, dat authority.

I agree with you if that analogy actually reflected the situation. I don't think it does. If you were to rent a house or any property you would exchange money and have agreed upon a contract. If there was something you didn't agree apon you would not rent. Both sides would have to be in mutual agreement and if you did not agree to the landlord changing locks, they would then be at fault and compensation could be sought or the contract invalid. Now you may still think that this is what happened but it is not. Everyone seems to be forgetting something very important, we do not own the thread, sure we are here all the time and a lot of the content contained in the thread (pictures, audio, stories) are owned by individuals but although that is a part of the thread it is not the thread itself nor the forum. As with most of the internet we are only guests who have been given the ability to communicate to others using the provided resources.
Now the moderators don't really own the thread or forum either but they do have custody rights. Locking the thread was probably a bad decision but I can't say that I didn't see that it was going to happen. For those that read the Mod madness announcement it was hinted that anything could happen and honestly if I was a mod then I would have locked the thread too, however I would have done it during a slower posting period and (because I get distracted) for only about an hour instead of four. I understand that people were scared about losing the thread permanently and if it was done anytime other than during mod madness I would also let the fears get to me. But it was done during the madness which meant it was only temporary, honestly maybe it should have been locked longer as it appears too many of us have become so dependent on the OTT that we can't last without it for a day.
The reactions to the current Madness have also surprised me. Words being changed by filters seems so close to the methods used to create OTTish words, the differences being that the the filters just remove the personal conversion into another word. I in fact found that I have grown so used to just accepting new words that I was able to just read through the madness to the original intent of the poster(I greatly understand that not everyone finds it easy since mrob's pirate posting is actually harder for me to mentally convert than the Madness). I also expect OTTers to talk about and record the effect of the madness since that is what they are best at. Everything is RELATED and a lot of the thread was spent finding the difference between two pixels, trying to translate a different language and making guesses about what was going to happen in the OTC. This is the behavior of the OTT and the Madness provides an outlet for this behavior. While I do not condone fun if that fun is to hurt others but if someone is having fun posting silly pictures, puzzles, coded messages or other stuff as long as it doesn't hurt someone else and they can expect that the post will most likely be ignored by others then I see nothing wrong with this.

I also wish to add that while most post outside of the thread are made with goodwill and cheerfulness please use OTTish responsibly. Language is there for people to communicate, if someone doesn't understand what you are saying you are not communicating. It is also polite to speak the native language of the places you visit. Just like people should not expect everyone to understand English (while if they travel to a foreign country don't expect everyone to speak OTTish.

The difference between OTTish and the Madness is precisely the difference between teasing and bullying. Teasing is a mutual thing, between friends. Bullying is one-sided. Also, we are really only changing our own words, leaving others use the words they choose or not.

And while, I guess, technically we agree to put up with the Madness as a part of our agreement to use the forum, it would be a pretty rare contract that actually allowed such things. (I do know of some condos near me that actually have a clause that during certain periods the resident must make them available for a party, but that's very much an exception to the norm, and the residents are compensated in other ways.) In the case of renting a house, there is generally some authority you can go to for arbitration if the agreement needs adjusting. In this case, we've essentially been told there is no arbitration, and we can't even bring up our complaint.

This is the closest to a home I have on the internet. Those of you that frequent other places, are there equivalents to the Madness for the moderators there? Are they needed? What kinds of things do they do?

I think you need Opera 12.16 because the new Not-A-Real-Opera uses different engine (same as Chrome), so I guess it works in it. I don't have the new Opera installed, though. I should mention, that Opera 12.16 is now considered an out-dated browser (well, it's half a yip old), so I use it at my own risk of running into compatibility issues on websites (which happens more and more often)expl. Therefore if you don't want to deal with it, it's totally fine. (I still don't know, what browser is ergman using, though.)

If you still want to look into it, you can download Opera 12.16 here. The Violentmonkey extension (I think it doesn't even work with the new Opera) should be this one. I have no idea why it does not work but maybe it's just some syntax problem. I remember I once had a (really tiny) problem with one particular site - it was fine on all other browsers. The reason was a missing space (or maybe a redundant space, I don't remember) somewhere in the source code - other browsers just ignored the error.

expl The reason I'm still using it is because I've been using Opera for ten years and was very satisfied with it and last year they suddenly made a new version with new engine (that would be fine) but they dropped all the features. All of them. The functionally rich browser became a copy of Chrome with even less functions than the Chrome itself. Sooner or later when the number of incompatible sites is too big, I will have to make the switch but it would be painful for me.



Oh, and I know you are writing it in spoilers, but if you could please bring those discussions about mods and bullying and madness to conclusion and possibly end those arguments with mods in the other thread and forget about it, I think everything would be more molpish. I hope it doesn't sound rude, that's not intended, and you are free to ignore this request.

I paraphrased. I hope you don't mind but the quoted text was near unreadable, making discussion difficult. The Madness Principle (which sounds like a good Ludlum title) apparently is that through the use of filters, everything posted is marked up beyond recognition, yet, readable. It's like introducing noise to an analog signal: you can still watch the program, it just becomes harder to do. This is, apparently, fun. I am not a moderator here, so I have no idea how unthankful the task is. Personally, I get more mileage out of the OTT. But to each his or her own.

We don't own the thread. But in a sense we are the the thread. Without the continuing contributions the OTT would just fizzle out. The reason that the OTT gained momentum is, unlike other XKCD comics, it had a heartbeat. It still does, because of the influx of the Time After Time efforts, in whatever shape or form. That, and because of the community spirit within, makes this, for lack of a better world, magical, or more down to earth, separate place to be.

My point is that it is quite possible to enjoy the thread even if filters were to be applied. I am glad that we got an exception apparently still in effect, but it would be possible to do without. However, the locking of a thread is not mere introducing static-to-a-signal: it is disabling the signal. In effect, the thread dies, although its remains are still there. To do this willy nilly is not 'fun'. No amount of rationalization would make this fun, unless your definition of Mod Madness includes the use of any moderator tools at your disposal. Even then it could only be argued to be 'funny' when a certain amount of randomness is involved. However, the closure of the thread was a directed effort, with no indication on a possible return.

While it is true that we are not allowed by a legal contract to be here, we do have a social contract, and a number of rules about posting here. Essentially we are self-moderating, and that has worked well enough. That kind of community spirit attracts those who are otherwise bullied and attacked, or just introverted by nature. As a moderator, you have to be aware of your responsibilities. You cannot wave them away with a Moderator Madness (Modness?) hall pass.

If the OTT was a suicide support group, and someone committed suicide because of the unavailability of the OTT, this would possibly be headline news. Luckily, we're not, and as far as we know that hasn't happened. You cannot rationalize a sense of belonging that some people have and say that they are too emotionally involved. While your opinion is valid rationally, their feelings towards the OTT will not be denied either.

So, acting responsibly is never fun. You agree that we as OTTers also have a responsibility, so no need to revisit that. Hope it clarifies.

Not a chart, but mrob does have the raw data for posting/newpix here. We've been pulling above 8p/np for the past twenty newpages or so, which is a rate that hasn't been seen since the mid-1300s newpages. (The Sadness caused the rate for NP1849-ish to dip briefly back down to the 6p/np range; I suspect the reason it didn't drop further is because of the speed of posting immediately following that Time boosted it.)

True that half the thread's inside of spoilers. Not that they shouldn't have their conversations, but we need to fill in the gaps with regular OTT posts. As such:
Molpy molpy molpy molpy,
Molpy molpy molpy molpy,
Molpy molpy molpy molpy,
GRAPEVINE GRAPEVINE!

So, I assume cuegan will have to return to that radioactive cave, for some reason. Was the zombieny moving? Because if so, Cuegan may try to be zombeanish? and save him


?brave, as stated.

I think what would be useful for them is this.
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

I tink wa would be useful for dem be dis.

You are assuming that cuegan understand what "radiation" is. If not, I duspect that "milirad" won't mean a thing to them, and they'll think you are crazy for showing them little colored squares when there is some kind of poison in that cave, damnit!
