Title: The survey: the results
Post by: Frerk on May 16, 2013, 05:02:30 pm
Dear members,
This is mostly a crosspost from ingame, but nonetheless.

You might have missed them, or you might have filled them out. As most of you will know I released two surveys this week regarding the official UK forums. Avid forum users will know me as an administrator on said forums. With eRepublik becoming more and more centered around logging in and doing damage and less about domestic politics the forums have had to deal with a steadily declining userbase. Parties have changed their recruitment strategies; in addition to attracting them with policies and dreams they have started to employ financial incentives for joining.

The forums, too, are trying to find their place in this new type of game. After some smaller attempts on the forums yielded less results than we had hoped for, I decided to take it ingame, on a much larger scale. And thus the surveys came forth.

I designed two separate surveys, one for active forum members, and another one for players without activity, or an account at all. This is mostly due to gdoc’s technical limitations, but that’s of lesser importance. The questions were moderately simple; are you an active member, if not why not, how happy are you, any suggestions etcetera etcetera.

We received a total of 59 responses. This is a lot less than I had originally hoped for, mostly because ONS didn’t send them out but I had to rely on shouts to spread them. Nonetheless, there are a few very good suggestions in there, and we are happy to have so many opinions. We analysed all responses and came to a conclusion.

But before that I will quickly go through statistics. A total of 40 active members filled out the survey. Their average mark is a 6.1(I haven’t filtered out any anonymous 1s or 10s, though we only have 2 of them, so they should balance out.). In addition to this 19 inactive members filled out the survey. Excluding the permanently banned Chewie(No, you’re not getting unbanned again) they all have their reasons for refusing to use the forums, the most common being a lack of activity on the forums and the forums not being useful anymore.


Now, for the results.
I will start out by saying that the most commonly used noun was “rule”. The rules are too harsh, they say, or are not being enforced fairly and equally. The solution to this, they suggested, was simply making them less harsh. And that is exactly what we are going to do. Our dear Butjam is, as I write this, writing the new ruleset, which we(in the team) have come up with.

We will also be adding one new rule to combat the perceived bias: people are not allowed to moderate a discussion they have taken part in. What this basically means is that if a moderator is in a discussion with a player he can’t infract the player, or himself(why would he), but that if a rule has been broken by either of them a moderator who is not involved has to step in. Some might see this as common sense but it has happened in the past on multiple occasions and some people have been banned while they shouldn’t have been. As such we are also removing all bans besides ChewChewShoe’s.


A few people have complained about the layout being too messy, and the forums being too difficult to browse through for newer members. We recognise that the forums are cluttered and have begun to get rid of anything we can miss, and simplifying the layout. We have something technical planned which will greatly alter the forums(And assist in this issue), and I will look into making the forums even simpler to navigate once that is done.

Another point which has been raised is a lack of activity and things happening. While what congress and government do is up to them and we have no direct influence on that(THOUGH CONGRESS IS ALWAYS WELCOME YOU GUYS <333) we can tackle the activity problem ourselves. For this reason we have created a “Forum promotion team”, which butjam will personally oversee. This team will look into promoting the forum and activity on the forums in any way or shape they can, be it ingame campaigns, forum events, games or handing out money.

This team will get its own shiny forum name and title, my eternal gratitude, and whatever benefits butjam thinks he should hand out. Anybody who is interested can and should message butjam (http://www.erepublik.com/en/citizen/profile/82852).


As you can see we made a few plans following the survey. I would like to thank everybody who submitted a response for doing so and I hope that this article makes them believe it has been worth the 5 minutes. Perhaps these were not the changes some people were waiting for, but I hope that this shows to them that we are indeed willing to listen.

Thanks,
Frerk

As I've just mentioned in IRC, by the way... for those of you that think we don't listen to changes...

Between now and the 16th of March, we have handed out 67 infraction points to users, a fairly high number. However, since April 16th, we've handed out 6. I don't know about you but forum has seemed a little livelier the past couple days, fairly polite too bar one.... rude thread (Alice)

Anyway, big changes to come, p exciting

BBH has always had its own set of forum rules. As long as it's not pr0n or against the ToS of the forum itself, it was allowed and Bob has ultimate say on who mods there.

Have a problem? Take it up with Bob, it's his forum, or simply don't go there like all the rest of us who don't post there.

What did ChewChewShow that was bad enough for being the only player in the forums not being amnestied?

I have absolutely no idea as I'm only active on the fgt forum, but I met him on diplomatic circles and he doesn't strike me as "worst offender possible"
Title: Re: The survey: the results

Because chewy is one of those people that is really good at behaving when appropriate and is really inappropriate when he isn't on his best.

Like that annoying childhood friend that your parents loved, but was secretly one messed up kid and did loads of crazy stuff.

Well, that doesn't really answer my question. I was just surprised at the fact there is a general amnesty for everybody but one guy.

posting a link to porn on IRC is whatever...cause nobody will ever no about it and there isn't a record of it for any real purpose...

posting porn on this forum makes the owner liable for said porn.

which is why most forums don't allow it.

Posting NSFW on #euk=At least a temp ban

Posting porn and the like on here threatens our advertising and thus the continuation of the forums. Chewie was unbanned along with everyone else in the mass unbanning that happened a while ago and didn't even make it 24 hours before posting something that wasn't remotely appropriate. This is a decision which has been backed by the whole forum hierarchy, we want to be less strict (The new rules are a great example, just wait until you see them) but there are limits on what is acceptable.

No, you're totally fucking wrong, as usual.  I never banned anyone from forums for IRC stuff.  Some people were banned from both because they were dicks in both.

And as for the porn not being serious theory, Pfeiffer has explained that pretty well.

I hope you mean a temp ban from #euk IRC???  Because banning on forums due to IRC stuff would be silly.

Lol.  I don't think kumnaa is concerned about the advertising revenue.  It's pennies and doesn't even come close to covering costs.  It's more to do with the legal implications.  Yes the ads would be stopped but that's a much smaller issue.

Yeah, bans last hardly any time on #euk, don't think there's many permabanned on IRC that aren't just forig trolls

I used 'advertising' as a nice catch all phrase for all that stuff. I can't think of anybody else who was unbanned who so swiftly broke the ToS. Certain members may have run up infraction points but never anything serious (There was that one time, but it was sorted out to be a genuine mistake)

If someone is being harmful to the environment and atmosphere here, the community usually deals out its own punishment through shunning which is p much as bad as a permaban as it extends beyond the forums. You harm the forums themselves though and you'll be booted off

Nope. I'm telling you he's the only one who'd do it again within 24 hours.
Think of the mass unbanning as a 2nd chance: everybody can grab it. Goku grabbed his and didn't get banned again, when we unbanned him a while ago. Chewie, though, has gotten banned for making multis with an Irish guy, with names like Anne Frank and Hitler, trying to "replay" WW2. He got banned for posting fascist stuff, ages ago. Oh, and he got banned for porn, only to be unbanned earlier this year by me, promising he'd behave.

Of course he posted gay porn within a few hours, and was promptly banned again.

I have no issue at all with giving people a second chance, but like Pfeiffer already explained you, if he, or any other user, posts porn, gore, or anything else which is in conflict with Google Ads' policy, then kumnaa is liable, and our funding might be cut, Dan says it's not a lot, but it's money nonetheless. This doesn't take into account that some hosting companies prohibit adult material(Although I don't know if kumnaa's host shares this policy).

Edit: also, for the legal implications of posting gore and porn(Or fascist stuff etc etc etc), maybe somebody who is good at that stuff could explain it to us :P

Just look at the Terms of Service for usage of the forum hosting, etc. Much like Youtube, which hosts copyright material, a forum is responsible to moderate itself and the content. As most forum hosting sites are free, they have in their ToS that you cannot do Gore/Porn due to the lack of an age requirement, and the owner/administrators are required to enforce that, otherwise they'd risk getting the forums shut down should it be reported that they weren't doing so.

Granted, that's probably a last ditch, and I don't expect them to be watching me right now as I post that you could still probably get away with a few jpg's without risking it, but if Lionbeard here, at the ripe age of 11 or whatever it was when he joined (HI DAN) had reported to forumotion (our old site, not sure which one we use now) that we had porn posted, it would violate, etc.

In short, it's in the agreement for Terms of Service. :3

The current forum is hosted by Kumnaa on an (I believe) hired VPS somewhere. Which means he pays for it. Either way:
Quote
You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where “eRepublik UK” is hosted or International Law. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed required by us.
Is our ToS. Says enough.

Anyway, Chewie isn't getting unbanned.

Would be better if you just permabanned, since Goku/those people probably like the small bit of attention they get during the shunning. Plus his poison does harm the forum itself and its community, so boot him off.

I was against permabanning after the copyright incident because it was a genuine mistake. He was punished with a ban for it and I assured him that it wasn't going to be permanent. If Goku was Al Capone, maybe I'd go for low hanging fruit to ban him off but he's not and he isn't. If he wants to act like a dick in how he posts, feel free to act like one back, the forum rules have been relaxed. Try and keep it remotely civil though, please

Your solution to terrible people is for everyone to be terrible.

the forum would be somewhere safe from his poison for the free-thinking players

You're getting to sound exactly like a Liberal Studies lecturer I had many many years ago whose whole attitude could be summed by "Everyone is entitled to their opinion provided it coincides with mine."

The forums should be inclusive not exclusive.

That's funny. Goku sounds exactly like that lecturer you're talking about. How ironic.

MY question was never answered, does this involve being banned from irc?  I was "bad" on the first day I found it.  Ah, the memories of being an eTeen
Not all of the bans will be lifted, but I'll go remove yours now if you're banned, surferdude on IRC right?
yes IRC, don't I think I trolled too hard my first day.  
It still says, "You are banned from the channel #euk"
