    Especially on darker themes like Nightfall and Midnight. The thing's near invisible.

    Modkilling is, generally speaking, a poor choice. Games are balanced meticulously around a certain amount of players and an anticipated amount of kills per game cycle. Extra kills throws the balance off, as evidenced in the recent Ace Attorney game. Town was suddenly thrown into MyLo because a player was (deservedly) modkilled. This is unfair to the players who likely would have stood a chance had they been given an extra lynch to work with. While in some cases (that one, for example) modkilling is preferable to the alternative, it should never be considered a go-to immediate response to solving every problem.

    If you think it is necessary, or perhaps some other action needs to be taken, even just a warning, that's what the report button is for. By consistently bringing egregious posts to the attention of the mods we can more effectively and efficiently deal with problems that arise, hopefully before they reach a level where a modkill is necessary.

    I get that it's probably meant as a step between red and blue, but purple seems less official than blue and you'll probably be getting the "what does that mean" a lot, so get used to it lute

    There are also two new moderators. Hallia has been “promoted” from a discord moderator to a moderator. GeneralHankerchief is also now a moderator and his moderation experience will prove useful to the team.

    Clarification:

    Lissa is being brought onto the team to address a specific issue (flaking / subbing) and will not be available to users for site/Discord behavior moderation.
    I have a good place to start
    Champ has graciously taken all flaking bans upon himself and as a result his account has been deleted.

    are the normal moderators no longer discord moderators or is this just a less powerful version?
    Good question actually!

    We blues still have full powers and responsibilities on Discord. The teals work alongside us with handling Discord and now bear the brunt of the work in that area. Only real distinction is that teals aren't involved with site moderation.

    Sticky: Staff Changes and Structural Shenanigans Ahoy...

    Staff Changes and Structural Shenanigans

    Ahoy ahoy ahoy!

    Skulking in the shadows as we are known to do, the mod team has been fiddling with mechanics and gizmos and fine-tuning ourselves in secret, searching for the recipe for the perfect pasta sauce of site management. We weren't able to do that, but we decided to go with a backup plan we thought was pretty nifty.

    Now instead of one Purple, we have three! What does this mean? For us, it means a whole lot of baloney. For you, it means two things: There should in most cases always be a Purple online, and things being streamlined on the back end means issues will be handled faster than ever. If you ever need a Purple for anything, you can hit one up via PM, Discord PM, or at the email address muheadmod@gmail.com, the latter being where any appeals should be sent if possible. All Purples have sworn a sacred oath to check their email at least once every two years or so.

    As a part of this structural shift, smilefires is promoting himself from Purple to Blue. In his stead, Nego, Ampharos, and myself (lute) have formed the Purple triumvirate. By the time you're reading this the OP should be updated to reflect these changes.

    Also here's the official announcement that bearsquared has been demoted from Teal to Blue.




    I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the distinction between Purple and Blue is virtually non-existent. The only reason we actually do make a distinction is for the sake of visibility. Don't get the idea that instructions from a Blue carry less weight than a Purple's or whatever. Purples are just Blues with less common sense and more fashion sense.




    Let's give everybody a big hand!

    What we're saying is

    Two quite different green jobs are the same colour


    But two very very similar blue jobs are different colours


    I mean if nobody minds me pulling the curtain back a little here I'll say up front that I don't really care about the colors all that much (and Amy might have some words on this) despite being the reason purple exists

    If I recall correctly, which I usually do, teal was kind of an unofficial "mod training color" in that potential blues who were active mostly on Discord could pick up the slack there since a lot of the blues at the time didn't want to be entirely responsible for the Discord for a wide variety of reasons. So in that sense, there was a purpose beyond just delineating who best to come to with problems on either the site or Discord. As time went on that hasn't really been what we've used the role for and honestly teals may as well be blues at this point, I agree.

    I don't think anything I said just now mattered at all what the whatever I'm leaving it in

    The big issue we face is one that's hard to deal with, honestly:

    Ara's the senior teal and she loves that color


    So anyway in conclusion: I don't think there has to be a distinction but personally I don't care that there is one. And I feel somewhat apathetic to the whole situation because I don't find colors particularly confusing and only really take umbrage with one color.

    Gold.
    No I'm serious I'm actually unreasonably annoyed by the existence of the Golden God role, couldn't tell you why.
