Alright, well, now for the less glamourous part of my job.
The new enhanced CR 2.0 BETA
is now up and running and accepting not only EDIT ISSUES submissions, but now ADD ISSUES and ADD VARIANTS as well. There's going to be more interaction
between approvers, submitters, reviewers and therefore, not everyone is going to agree on stuff. Out of necessity, we have implemented a formal CODE OF CONDUCT
for the system.
CCL's OFFICIAL CODE OF CONDUCT
The CHANGE REQUEST system of Comic Collector Live is the means in which data is accepted, researched and approved or rejected. If approved, the information appears in the master CCL database for all to see.
The data is submitted by any member of the community, and also can be viewed and commented on by any member of the community. There are 3 main factions involved in your submissions:
Submitters - the person adding or editing the data
Reviewers - any member of CCL that views or comments on the data
Approvers - CCL employees as well as certain members of CCL that either approves or rejects the data based on the accuracy of the data.
Due to the high number of submissions and reviews, it has become necessary to implement a CODE OF CONDUCT in the CCL Change Request system. This system will allow users to monitor comments made by anyone in the approval process, and flag the comment as inappropriate based on content. CCL will hold accountable members who do not adhere to CCL's code.
Comments that should be flagged for content should include:
1) Foul language
2) Personal attacks against another CCL member
If a member suspects a comment is a breach of CCL's Code, the member should flag the comment by hitting the 'flag' icon in the box that the member's comment appears in.
This information will be sent to CCL employees and reviewed as good or bad.CCL members that violate the code will be subject to consequences, which could include rights revoking, suspension or possible expulsion from CCL
Once a comment is flagged for content/abuse by a CCL member, a CCL employee will investigate the incident. A notification will be sent to both parties, making them aware of the investigation.
Approvers who are found in violation of the CCL Conduct Code will be subject to these steps of disciplinary actions:Step 1) Warning
Step 2) Revoked approval status (This will take away the members right to approve or reject data into the CCL db.
Step 3) Revoked submitter/reviewer status (This will take away the members right to add or edit any data into the CCL db.
Reviewers/Submitters who are found in violation of the CCL Conduct Code will be subject to one of 3 levels of severity. Step 1) Warning
Step 2) Suspension from affecting data for any length of time as decided upon by CCL.
Step 3) Complete revocation of adding or editing data for good.
CCL considers this Code of Conduct policy, however CCL also reserves the right to make any changes or summary disciplinary it sees fit for any reason.
I would much rather stick to my role as approver extraordinaire than have to police this system, however, please understand that I DO care about CCL and as grand poobah of approvers, first and foremost, my concern is the DATA
. That being said, as nice, cool and modest as I am, WOE BE TO YOU
should I find you violating these rules. Also, WOE BE TO YOU
should you abuse the system. Roles are privledges that can be taken away. It's as simple as that.
Now, I'm glad that's settled. :) Let's go have some fun in CR 2.0 Beta, shall we?
