Proposal: Easier tracking of Idleness

Enacted 13-5. Josh

Adminned at 09 Feb 2007 15:10:04 UTC

In rule 1.2 Actors, change:

Admins may render an Actor Idle if that Actor has failed to vote for more than 7 days or has asked to become Idle.

to

Admins may render an Actor Idle if that Actor has asked to become Idle or if that Actor has not posted a entry or comment for more than 7 days.

This makes Admin work a lot easier, as EE’s profiles track the data needed to enforce it.

Aren’t the two synonimous?

I mean, how can an Actor vote without posting an entry or comment?

E can’t. But e can post an entry or comment w/o voting.

against If you’re not voting, we don’t want you adding to quorum.  If there is some special need to allow certain Actors to remain non-voting but active, we can deal with it on a case-by-case basis.  Even this is already partially dealt with by “may” in “Admins may rener an Actor Idle…”

ChronosPhaenon:

02-07-2007 19:52:39 UTC

Yes, and you could also help to keep track of who is voting and who is not…

for Disagreeing with Hix - if we idle someone because they’ve been playing the game without voting, then they’ll just request that they become unidled again.

People, the only practical effect of this proposal is to make a huge LOT easier to check if someone deserves or not to be idled. There’s not much difference about commenting and voting.

As much as I think the idea of ‘activity’ should be defined by voting, this really does make administrative work that much easier.

I find it interesting is that this broke very much admins v. not-admins at the beginning.
