[personal profile] sd_admin posting in [community profile] scans_daily
(Crossposted to NoScans_Daily)

After discussion, the mod team have decided to try a new approach to mod communications! Rather than spam the community with every announcement, we're going to be trying a new newsletter format to update our members with any developments with the communities, posted (semi)regularly and drawing attention to the great, the good and any changes in mod policy.

So, here goes with our very first Scans_Daily Planet Bugle!




SD_Admin:


First up, you may notice we're still using the SD_Admin account for this post. We understand the concerns about the facelessness of the SD_Admin account and, as we've stated, the Modbot will be retired on matters of discipline to preserve transparency. All matters of discipline continue to be group decisions, but individual mods will be more visible handing out mod notes and warnings. We will, however, still be using the account for mod posts, FAQs etc, for the simple logistical reason that it means all members of the moderation team can edit posts at a later date, if required.

Moderator Stepping Down:


It is with some regret that we have to announce that [personal profile] neo_prodigy has stepped down from the [community profile] scans_daily and [livejournal.com profile] noscans_daily moderation team.

We'd like to publicly thank Neo for all his hard work and contributions over the past few months, especially for sharing his experience in the areas of anti-oppression moderation and his aid towards our commitment to making [community profile] scans_daily and [livejournal.com profile] noscans_daily safer spaces for all marginalized groups. His help has been invaluable in clarifying the rules and policies of the community, which the mod team continues to be 100% committed to.

We hope our members will join in us wishing him good luck in his future endeavors.

Suggestions Box and Anti-Oppression:


On the subject of our continuing commitment to anti-oppression moderation, like many of you, many of the mod team are still relatively new to anti-oppression work and we haven't always done the best we could. Part of our reason for reviving the Suggestion Box (SD’s is here, NSD’s is here) was to get feedback from our members on [community profile] scans_daily and [livejournal.com profile] noscans_daily's anti-oppression stance and how we might better work on making the communities friendlier and safer spaces for all marginalized groups to discuss comics.

After taking into account recent internal debates, and the comments in the Suggestions Box, we'd like to publicly reaffirm our commitment to Scans/NoScans as anti-oppression communities and to our doing 101 level work within it. We will be examining the suggestions regarding mod practices over the next few weeks. However, we'd like to clarify that we will not be compromising either community’s strong commitment to supporting marginalized members, nor are there any planned changes to comm policy in this regard. The calling out policy will remain in place and we’d like to remind members and lurkers alike of the warning clearly displayed on the main page:
Bottom line: If slash, feminism or anti-oppressive practice makes you react negatively, scans_daily is probably not for you.

If you are one of those who have expressed concerns about our stance on anti-oppression and calling out being used in the community at all, we’d like to reiterate: the community is most likely not a good fit for you. These are policies that are ingrained into the community’s ethos and will not be compromised at the expense of marginalized groups.

Scans_Daily of LiveJournal: RISE!


The other big news of the week is that [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily has returned to Livejournal! Although this won't affect our, now permanent, home on Dreamwidth, thanks to Livejournal's policy of purging defunct journals the era of the strikethrough has ended and Black Lantern Scans_Daily has risen! As the community shuffles back into unlife, hungering for BRAAAAIIIINS, why not check in on the ongoing party post and sate its appetite?

Theme Weeks:


And more big news! One of the things the Mod team are looking to encourage is the return of regular theme weeks on [community profile] scans_daily. Traditionally, these have been invented on-the-fly by members and we're not looking to change the spontaneity of this. However, to encourage our members to share the love, we're going to be announcing occasional theme weeks ourselves. After the success of last June's "One Perfect Moment Week" (thanks to [personal profile] icon_uk!), we'll be kicking off with a repeat of that theme:



So, if you didn't get the chance to post your perfect moment last year or another's appeared since, this is your opportunity. "One Perfect Moment Week 2.0" will be kicking off this Sunday with an announcement post, so get your scans ready!




Thanks, S_Ders and NS_Ders and keep on being awesome!

In my head, you have invested your life savings in stock in the word "retard", and the bottom has fallen out of the market.

Don't worry though. There are plenty of places where the word retard will be an asset to any investor's portfolio. Just not here.

Oh, wow. Really sad to see [personal profile] neo_prodigy go, especially if his departure has anything to do with what I think might be the reason. He has been absolutely brilliant in discussions here and while I know all you moddies work hard, I can't help but feel that his stepping down is a real loss to this community and what it seems to strive for.

If you happen to read this, n_p, best of luck and keep on keepin' on.

Other than that, I think I'll be very happy to start receiving updates on LJ again. Call me lazy but I hate this hopping back and forth... ;)

From: [personal profile] cainofdreaming
I must say that I belong to the group that's apprehensive about this whole 'free reign' to go at it on anyone who a poster, or posters, views as being bigoted. I mean, it's very easy to misinterpret people on the internet. And besides such trollish individuals who actually post that drivel with intent pretty much live on that kind of response.

I've lately found that the best kind of way of dealing with those situations is either plainly asking what the person means, or if he or she is plainly not interested in a discourse from the get-go report and let the mods do their stuff.

I've now begun the process of trying to read everything everyone has said on the issue of calling out to try and get an idea of the different perspectives and to try and understand the issue better

I just have a question in regards to the tone argument and calling out. When calling someone out, are the individuals who are calling out members of the community who use aggressive and negative tones and insult other members (ie calling them an asshat) going to be supported?

For example: this post on Insane Journal

I'm a little confused here. I'm not trying to encourage derailing whatsoever, but rather understand if it's OK to allow disrespectful insults when trying to get someone to understand their ignorance and privilege? ....

This specific question was already asked and answered in the appropriate post. And on a number of other occasions in discussion with others.

There's also multiple resources relating to the tone argument in our resources. I'd particularly point you to The Privilege of Politeness, which you may well find enlightening.

Though Gail has had the decency and courage to publicly note that her own tone didn't help in that affair, I am inclined to agree.

I had left that post well alone by the time things appear to have REALLY hit the fan, and only found it again a couple of days ago and I was more than a little shocked by some of the vitriol there, some I could appreciate and understand, but some of it went overboard, IMHO.
