Q: Firing mods and changing content license: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

amonThe last weeks and days have seen some erratic behaviour by Stack Exchange Inc, such as likely illegal changes to the content license and the firing of a community moderator for no good reason. It would be nice if those just were examples of ill judgement, but the disturbing alternative is that S...

A: Firing mods and changing content license: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

SnowMonica is my captain. There is no one else I would rather follow in this community - she is the perfect embodiment of “leading by example”. Within the confines of the moderator curtains, I witnessed at first hand this whole sorry story play out. Gilles’ meta post carries most of the context. ...

A: Firing mods and changing content license: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

Awesome PoodlesI wish I could share some of what's been happening in the moderator chat, but suffice it to say that Stack Exchange has gone beyond the pale in the "1984" abuse of language and thought/speech crime department. Even so, it's not clear that Monica violated the new guidelines (yet) -- but I didn't ...

A: Firing mods and changing content license: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

Journeyman GeekI've been asked a few times about my demodding. The simple, honest answer is simply that... I'm tired. The past few days has been an emotional roller coaster. As a moderator, I've always felt an essential part of my role was to bring a community together. To help build bridges, and to heal rifts...

A: Firing mods and changing content license: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community?

oolCommunity contradicts profitability. There is a lot of sense in this question from two years ago: How much is a Stack Exchange reputation point worth, roughly, to the company? By far the largest proportion of the brand's value is in the work done by the licence givers. The deal is basically tha...

A: Stack Overflow Inc., sinat chinam, and the goat for Azazel

Isaac MosesI am appalled at this action by Stack Overflow, Inc. I urge them to reconsider, as this community, and I'm sure others, are significantly better places thanks to your past and ongoing impact. It's too late to wash this painful act from our memories, but it really needn't be too late to reverse it...

A: Stack Overflow Inc., sinat chinam, and the goat for Azazel

mblochI am shocked to read this.

I cannot believe th...

Sara ChippsWe understand there are some folks upset about this decision.

Q: Employee profiles are now marked with a “Staff” indicator

CatijaStarting today, all staff member accounts will have "Staff" next to their name on their user profile. It looks like this: For reference, it used to look like this: We took our cue from the existing design of the "top n% overall" label which we've actually inverted for everyone (not just st...

Q: Congratulations to our 29 oldest beta sites - They're now no longer beta!

CatijaIf you're a user on a long-toiling beta site that's been waiting 7-8 years to get out of beta, this may be the post you've been waiting for. The 29 Beta sites that are 7+ years old no longer have the "Beta" label! I'm on record as saying that we need to ditch the "beta" label for our older site...

Q: The "Featured" tab is now "Bountied"

CatijaIt's long confused me why we put bounties on a tab labeled "Featured" that has no connection to the "Featured" questions in the right sidebar.

Q: Purged comments reappear when posting a comment after purging

Yvette ColombWhen purging all comments under a post, the comments then reappear immediately after if I click to add a comment. They then disappear again after posting the comment.

Q: The pop up box used for user annotations does not close when the action is completed

Yvette ColombCan we please have a more intuitive user experience when annotating user accounts? The pop up box when annotating user accounts does not close when submitted.

Q: Migration bug? Re-migrating a question to the same site didn't create a new question on the destination site

Sonic the Anonymous HedgehogThis is not a duplicate of Strange course of actions with migrated and deleted question. That question was asked before the re-migration in question (while the migration was in a "rejected" state), and the response there boiled down to the fact that the user's browser continued to cache the fact ...

Q: Is there a plan for dealing with all the moderator vacancies?

AlexAs many are aware of by now, a whole bunch of moderators are no longer serving in that capacity. Between all those individuals there are (as of now) about 20 moderator positions that became unfilled without much prior notice, and at least one site ended up losing the majority of its moderators. ...

Q: Is downvoting associated with keeping the site "clean"?

Gaurav MallOkay. So in the past, I have asked many bad questions. I mean they were bad. But one comment, on a certain question that has been deleted, said this about me: 340 up, 84 down. Not exactly stellar 'keeping the site clean' :( I wondered if downvoting means you are contributing more to the sit...

Q: Why'd my Meta flag on a comment which should *really* have been its own answer get declined?

MakotoSomeone's gonna have to explain this one to me. My answer here received a new comment after a few years. This particular comment seems like it'd be better served in an answer, but it also seemed like it was entirely conversational and thus orthogonal to my answer. So, I flagged it, but it was ...

Q: Did you ever train an AI to be a moderator?

juergen dStack Overflow has over 18 million questions not counting the deleted ones. All in all there are 100s of millions of recorded actions of the site (asking, answering, voting, closing, reopening, flagging, ...) This would make a good basis for training an AI to do some moderator work. Did the SE ...

Q: Resigning as moderator

SnowMonica was removed as a moderator over the weekend by the SE staff. It wasn’t her decision. As a result of that decision and the wider issue that prompted it, I have taken the easy decision of immediately stepping down. Good luck to you and all who follow.

Monica CellioSnow and Jane, it has been an honor to serve with you and the other moderators and work with this community.

Erik the OutgolferI fully support your decision to resign.

A: Is there a plan for dealing with all the moderator vacancies?

SE will then assess the need for moderation cover for each site. SE will then ask the remaining, existing moderation staff to co...

I tried to politely offer the option of direct discourse, and you ignored me. Shame on you. We'll see where this takes us next.
