What do the Moderators see?
Since the other discussion was all about how the Incubator looks like, I just wanted to know what do you see if you are a moderator. Just curios because Usagi and Tiago talked about the find thingy and other stuff. So it made me curious how it looks like to be a moderator.
At the moment, we have an extra tab for "Active" discussions. The most recently added to discussions, or the most recent discussions show up here (right click on image and open in new tab if you want to see it enlarged):
Inside the "Active" tab:
When posts get deleted, they disappear for you, but they turn grey for us. Here's a Spanish discussion that I was pointed to the other day. I don't know who deleted all these posts, but they deserve more than just lingots.
Here's a discussion with deleted and active posts to show the difference. You can also see the "delete" button, and "undelete" button under each post:
Only "delete" option for a discussion though:
That's about it. Nothing fancy.
We don't have the option to delete accounts or silence a user (despite some users' claims). If I have issues with someone that can't be rectified through a warning, I send an abuse report to staff (much like anyone else can) with screenshots when possible, detailing issues. After which, the offending user may get banned, silenced, or nothing (not sure if nothing actually happens, or if staff have their own "three strikes" database or something).
The same setup for the new layout. Edit: Plus wataya's comment.
I suggested something like the "Active Tab" more than 6 months ago (http://www.duolingo.com/comment/633086) and I was subsequently told that moderators had something like that. This is the first time I've actually seen it. I'm not sure I need to see all the deleted messages, but apart from that it's a pity it isn't a standard feature for all users for the reasons given in my discussion.
Seems like you don't have the "freeze discussion" option, yet :)
Once in a while when I delete a sentence though, I get the option to prevent further comments. No idea how/why this pops up sometimes, but not always.
3 I so love the screen shot of that loooooooooong sentence discussion feed. BAHAHAHA!! (I'm laughing but also crying a little inside)
I always feel like the earth is going to open up and swallow me whenever I see a sentence with 100+ comments.) How long did that one take to clean? Was it still refreshing and kicking you back to the beginning whenever you cleaned anything?
PS added this as a guide: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1278938 I might move it to another section on another day. :)
I wasn't the one who cleaned it. I only deleted about 3 posts there. I've only experienced the kick back thing when posts were hidden (ie -3 votes or more).
