Looking for moderators

Recommended Posts

I just came back from one week of vacation and discovered 719 route additions and changes waiting for approval. It made me realize that the job I was doing on a daily basis is not a one man job anymore. I'm therefore looking for volunteers to help me with moderation. Apart from spare time, candidates must have significant experience with vroute database of routes (i.e. three stars in profile or more).

The task is actually relatively simple - you look up a website, where all submissions are shown, and your job is to click "accept" or "reject" according to what you see . Details about the decision making process will be supplied to selected candidates.

 

Johnathon - I found only one account with your PID 955672 and it has 12 routes accepted and 1 rejected. This is by far not enough to get 4 stars, so I'm wondering what is the email address or PID that you used before?

Mark - you certainly have enough stars . 127 accepted routes - that puts you in the top 0.1% of all vroute users.

 

@All: there's no such thing as "local" moderation. You can't moderate routes for a VACC or for a continent. This is because each route starts and ends in two different places, and overflies some more. I can't send each route for acceptance to 10 different people in sequence just because it is from London to Bangkok...

I Agree with what other people are saying, you need a diversity of people moderating your route database, people that specialize in different regions, North America, South America, Europe, etc...

 

Why have a guy that flies mainly in Australia, adding in routes for Canada, when he has no idea?

 

Yeah it's not going to be perfect, but I think you should try to pick from a wide range of expertise, maybe have the europeans leave the North American routes to someone in that area.

 

Just a suggestion.

Somehow I'm doing the moderator job without excellent knowledge of Canada, Australia etc. I don't want to complicate the system further. I used to follow the path of having local moderators (in EUroute times) and it was too complex to be managed in real life. When there's 1 route per week for a specific country, I would spend less time accepting that route myself than making sure that folks from the respective VACC will do their job in a timely manner.

 

Kimmo: The guy from Finland is unlikely to know Frankfurt at the same time.

 

Mark: log on, click on your profile (flight details / ATC session details) and the stars will be next to your name.

Mark,

 

yes, we're talking of vroute, When you click on any flight or ATC for details, you can see some stars next to the name of the pilot/controller, if that person is a vroute user and has submitted some routes in the past. The number of stars is in relation to the number of such contributions.

Make sure that you use the same email as before during all new installations. This way all of your personal settings (vatsim id, stars, preferences, friends, communities, airac cycle) will be recovered automatically.

It counts - in a way that I appreciate the work everyone did. For technical reasons, since EUroute and vroute do not share the user database, the "stars" in vroute do not reflect your submissions in EUroute.
