Re: Community Updates - May 2020

This is welcome news, because the numbers on the leaderboard reflected how many bravoes were giving out, and on some posts that had one-word answers would get many bravos, while an Oracle who answers the post clearly gets one. 

 

Macros? People will find different ways to copy and paste the responses, I don't think that'll be a big difference-maker, but, it may slow them down by a few seconds. 

 

Looking forward to the changes!

Re: Community Updates - May 2020

Do we still have to juggle between the community site, the account site, and e-mail every time we talk to a mod or is everything still disconnected?

@Kovaelin, I would think so. Your self-serve account is totally different from the community/email side of things!

 

Let's be honest here, do you really want the community to know your credit card information, or where you live?

@mpcdesign @z10user4 I don't see why the Community site would need to display all the confidential information, but there are plenty of sites that know which service desk account belongs to whichever user account, without having to manually verify every time you have a new issue/every 72 hours. Not to mention if you have to jump through hoops to update your e-mail.

 

You account e-mail address that you use to log in is separate from the e-mail address on file, which is different from the community one, so not only do you have two accounts to manage, but your e-mail address is disconnected in at least three different places (that I know of).

 

It's undeniable that there could be improvements with how accounts are managed.

Yes. But to be clearer...email is just notifications. The private messaging is really a part of the community.

Yes, that is where the REAL changes need to happen. It is a horrible system.

@Tiana_V 

  1. By removing the Bravos board, you meant deleting it permanently from the forum and not hiding it from sight. Right?
  2. Its great that Retired oracles are recognized for their previous  efforts. But why the almost Oracle controls?
  3. And what constitutes a macro? Thanks. If I post an answer and keep linking to it. Is this a macro?

Thanks. Stay safe

1. Once removed, the leaderboard will not be available at all. 

2. Retired Oracles are trusted to perform critical actions such as helping to remove private info or inappropriate content from posts so that the Community can be safe and enjoyable for all users.

3. Macros are a specific capability within the Community that allow users to save templates to use and reuse. Linking to other posts is still possible.
