Is there any canonical list of the privileges in Docs? e.g. what does it take for me to propose a change, what does it take for me to review a change, and how much rep do actions give me?
 
user315433
I don't think there's anything canonical about Docs, it's all expanded universe.
 
Yeah, that's what it seems like... closest I can find is the privileges page but I still can't find out how much rep every action gives/takes away.
Ah, so it's kinda sorta in stackoverflow.com/help/whats-reputation. But that doesn't show any negatives for Docs, is that the case?
Wait... what happened with your SO account, @ᴡᴏʀᴅs?

Oh, lol
+2 for edit, +2 for topic proposal success, +5 for anyone (but you) upvoting anything you've 'substantively edited' and -10 for any downvote to one of your substantive edits
I'm not 100% on the downvote one though
 
No rep for downvotes

@hichris123 only from deletions and vote retractions
 
Ah, that must be what I was thinking of
 
@Shog9 So... downvoting = zero rep change? Why? Seems like it rewards... contributions. Quality wouldn't matter anymore.
 
Quality earns upvotes
 
@hichris123 delete privilege is currently... 1 rep. Takes 2 approvals. Removes all rep.

Q: Racist and abusive moderator on Academia Stack Exchange

User001The moderator, ff524, is a racist and abusive moderator on Academia SE.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is an agency within the United States Department of the Interior that administers more than 247.3 million acres (1,001,000 km2) of public lands in the United States which constitutes one-eighth of the landmass of the country. President Harry S. Truman created the BLM in 1946 by combining two existing agencies: the General Land Office and the Grazing Service. The agency manages the federal government's nearly 700 million acres (2,800,000 km2) of subsurface mineral estate located beneath federal, state and private lands severed from their surface rights by the...

@Shog9 Huh. But doesn't that remove the possibility for improvement? Why even downvote then?
Actually, why even vote?
Your two options are give no rep and give rep. Why have the former?

Ugh, I didn't realize that voting determined the order of examples on Docs. While that may work out eventually, it's not Q&A where there's a "best" answer. There should be some logical progression there...

This is so totally off-topic, can we close it or something
 
@Quill no. It is on topic. I totally disagree with the OP's attitude and name throwing and downvoted, but those things are valid discussions. People have full right to ask why they were suspended, and ask to lift it.
If we'll close any question we don't like, SO would have 99% of its questons closed.
(probably more, just rounding down.)
 
meh, it's not that a dislike it, it's just a blatant place for the OP to ask for new contendents to step up into the ring
 
@Quill well, he has the right to. It's a silly move, but it's a valid one.
(in my opinion)

yeah... that academia thing was quite a mess. but objectively, starting on the premise that attack really is a verb used to describe a way to solve a difficult problem, I really can't understand why this question (google cache) warrants a deletion.
It seem to have been the first one, presents as much of a link to reality as black nodes thing, is not inflamatory.
 
That's the first version, there's was two much worse edits after that
 
yeah, the other google cached versions?
they were posted the day after, possibly because the first one was deleted
my concern is, if really that first question was deleted in the state we can read in the google cached version, it's not exactly legitimate
and I would totally understand a user losing their shit about the moderation
 
3:47 PM
@FélixGagnon-Grenier as a disclosure I am a mod on academia.se. That question was not deleted by moderators, but rather by users who felt it was absuvie. Presumably, they felt it followed a pattern of a persistent troll that we have. As the OP deleted his account immediately after asking the question and there were no flags raised to undelete the question, there did not seem to be an issue.
 
Oh no, I see @StrongBad people here.
Tavern seems to be doing as usual.
Except @BJB is playing with . . . @rene's family?
 
@StrongBad Thanks for the clarification! I effectively thought it had been deleted by said moderator. This changes the score and settles the matter in my head. Of course users with deletion powers should not vote based on who is asking but that is starting to be far fetched, and I won't pursue that further.
 
4:06 PM
@FélixGagnon-Grenier "who is asking" isn't off limits, though. Someone had an opinion about what should and shouldn't be allowed, and instead of discussing on meta and mentioning hypothetical questions there to try to make their point, they posted them on the main site asking for them to be taken seriously.
Seems like pretty clear misuse of the site to me. The fact that someone else might've someday legitimately asked a similar question doesn't change the fact that the OP was asking it to provoke a reaction and continue a meta debate.
Another way to look at it: they shouldn't delete purely based on who asked (personal vendettas aren't cool), but they should delete based on the intent and validity of the question, and it's fair to use all the available knowledge to determine that.
 
Hmmm. sensible
I must say I normally would prefer if there was no influence whatsoever of who is asking, but indeed repeating offenders must be taken into consideration.
 
It's not even necessarily repetition, just... asking a question you know is fake, based on who asked it.
 
I'm struggling with that. It sounds perfectly right, but I can't help but remember that whole "vote on content, not users" thing.
I'm not sure how to reconcile those two ideas.
> they should delete based on the intent and validity of the question
seems helpful
yeah, an obviously fake question is indeed not the same as a legitimate one, even if both seem to be equivalent on other regards
 
I think "vote on content, not users" might be best seen as an overarching philosophy, not a hard and fast rule?
 
indeed. otherwise I get cognitive dissonance ;)
 
4:20 PM
It also probably makes a little more sense on up/down votes.
Retaliatory downvoting is relatively common; retaliatory close-voting less so.
But I can imagine even skewing up/down votes based on knowledge of a user - if someone with clearly established expertise on a topic says something surprising without citing sources, I might ask for clarification but not downvote, but if someone with a history of just being blatantly wrong about the topic does it, I might be less forgiving.
 
Well, we're also humans after all. I don't think it's even possible to not let our psyche infer with our decisions
 
@FélixGagnon-Grenier The problem is these rules are taken as generalizations when they're not.

Q: It’s time to retire the term “rep-whore”

JaydlesGoing forward, “rep-whore” (and its derivatives) will be treated like any other term that’s inconsistent with the community’s “be nice” policy: it will be removed. It’s totally okay if you’ve used it in the past. Nobody’s judging the many users who’ve used it. And users will NOT start being s...

How exactly?
 
@FélixGagnon-Grenier True enough - as with a lot of kinds of potential bias, the important thing is to be aware of it and do your best to make fair decisions anyway.
 
Since when was it even established outside SO and a bunch of other big nasty sites?
Once again, @Quill didn't tell me the whole story.
Although maybe that doesn't count as drama-ic in his dictionary.
