Staff: DoIntern List ~ Oppose. For me I've always seen interns as people who can be seen to give the community positive impact instead of anyone who can volunteer in a way, even if it's just through a list to be considered. For me, it's also more likely to make it so that staff (especially the COTP) actually has to keep track of who's in the community doing what in terms of positivity throughout the month between each Intern Meeting. For instance, while I was still in the COTP, I wrote down users' usernames throughout the month who made positive efforts in the community and kept track of their overall activity, and doing this made me feel more connected to the community and its happenings as a whole. All in all, I don't see this list as a very effective way and I feel like what benefits it may bring are somewhat outweighed by its deficits.
Can I ask you to bump this for me again? I do have it bookmarked but the bookmarks tab is hard for me to load here.
Discord: Rename fun ~ Neutral. I don't have a reason to really oppose, but in my opinion, I'm just starting to get really dulled to the word "chat". Could we use "convo" or some other word? I know it's cringy and I support the idea of renaming fun, but the fact that "chat" is everywhere just irks me in some way and I don't know exactly why.
I'm fine with "casual", but I think before I give support on a compromise I'll see what Mitsuki's reason is for opposing, and I'm also not too sure about Tsu's opinion on casual. I don't exactly remember what she said when you mentioned this vote in Discord since it wasn't a conversation I was a part of.
Tsu originally said "sounds nice"; but voted to oppose because "It may spawn confusion as general and casual can have intertwining meanings".
I argued the fact they are in seperate categories (Main and Off-topic), so there shouldn't be much confusion and it should be clearer. And that it's the job of staff to keep channel's in order. She didn't respond to my counter.
The current vote is 2 support, 2 oppose, 1 neutral. Why do we only tie over simple things like this?
Mitsuki's reason is the same as Tsu's. I've additionally replied
"General and causal have different meanings when I hear them; general sounds like that's where most topical conversation would take place and casual is where most other things would be done. Couple that with them being in 2 very different categories that clearly mark usage, I don't see much confusion. Then add in staff doing their job.
I see keeping the name of "fun" as worse and more confusing than any confusion a channel named "casual_chat" or "casual" would cause.
If there's an alternative name that would make you support; I'd be open to hearing that."
Is that a self-reflection? That's good. Also, harassing other users is also against the rules, as is posting comments unrelated to the content of a page. I just wanted to throw that out there. As it happens, spamming, harassing, and unrelated commenting on pages are very rude. I'd like to mention that doing so is just wasting one's own time in the first place. Finally, this wiki is not affiliated with Yandere Dev, and he takes no part in wiki governance here. All staff members are elected by the community. The fact doesn't usually make a difference, but please do keep that in mind. Thanks!
